LOLZ.  Your last question just put it over the top.  Solid!  ;D

I think that Mattel billed this as a first look but I'm not positive.   The September MOTU figure is Chief Carnivus.

I'll be saving some money on MOTU in September.  Not getting Carnivus or Gygor.  I'll just spend more on Star Wars.   ;D

I was very meh when I heard about Carnivus likely being in the final four for this year, and pretty much expected him to be the reveal today. That said after actually seeing him I'm completely turned around, I love how it turned out and am looking forward to adding him. it'll be nice to have another non human in the ranks of the good side. So far the good guys are rather plain compared to Skeletors group of wierdos.

I know this guy is 200x, but I can't for the life of me remember him. This line has pretty much lost me anyway, so whatever. I'm still wondering where Roboto and Man-E-Faces are.

Oh, you won't see them until the very end.

No interest in the Lion King and not looking forward to tomorrow's bloodbath of Faker, She-Ra, and Keldor.

Yeah, I'm still sort of debating on whether or not to go after Keldor tomorrow or not.  I'm also not sure what to do about the subscription for next year and all that.  I still really like this line (just recently re-arranged them on a shelf), and think it is of good quality, but the price does still sting a bit and we're getting more and more characters I'm not necessarily sure I need or want.  Like Ben mentioned, I really want Roboto and Man-E-Faces as well, but I'm guessing those won't be any time this year or soon.  There's a few others as well (Stinkor, Two Bad, Panthor), but otherwise I don't know that I "gotta have them all".  All that being said, after setting these up recently, it really is a well done line and I think that Battle Cat is one of my favorite things in the collection.

It looks like the findmyorder trick has been done away with.  Just found out from a guy on Facebook.  You go in through that site and it now tells you that you need to go to Matty's site to complete your order.  Any stuff you add to the cart on findmyorder doesn't stay there.  Jackasses.

Well got the coming soon screen way past noon, Keldor kept disappearing, but my order for him finally went through.

My buddy got my Keldor order through. It took forever just to get to checkout. I tried ordering and it froze, kicked the stuff out of my cart and will not let me reload. This site gets worse every month!

He does not even come up on the site search. The same thing happened to Optikk last month.

I was able to get in to MattyCollector with almost no issues this morning and order my She-Ra figure.  Not sure if this is new, but it looks like you get placed in a que about 15 minutes before ordering.  I had the site open about an hour beforehand, but at 10:45 it went to a new screen stating the site was busy and that it would refresh every 3 seconds.  It says not to refresh or you lose your place in the que.  So, I was patient, and sure enough I got in about 11:04.  I couldn’t remember my login, so I supplied a new one after ordering my figure.  The screen went back to the “you’re in the que” screen for a few minutes, then let me put in payment.  Processing took another minute or two, but I was all set by 11:10.  Definitely not as easy as ordering from most other sites, but not nearly as bad as I thought it would be given some of the posts on here.

Now the only problem I have is that I didn’t get a confirmation email.  Checked my spam box, but nothing in there either.  I did make sure I printed out the order # and confirmation from the page as back-up though.

I logged in today to order my Peter Venkman and briefly considered getting Keldor as I've been on the fence about him for a while, but ultimately I decided against it. It's getting harder and harder for me to drop 25-30$ a pop on what is essentially Skeletor with a new head and cape.
