Trap Jaw and Battle Cat weren’t the only things to sell out on Mattel’s last D-Day. Even though it took a couple more hours than the other two, the MOTU “Castle Grayskull Diorama & Stands” also sold out. I imagine most people were thinking the same thing I was, “Battle Cat is a little expensive, so I might wait until next time to get those stands.” Well, at the last minute I caved and added a set to my cart, and I guess I’m glad I did so. Because if you decided to wait, you are probably a little annoyed at the recent comment by Toy Guru.
Previously, it's been stated that "shipping rates are billed based on weight", but ordering 2 sets of Battle Stands (under a pound) currently costs the same as shipping two figures (typically a pound and a half or more). While we understand that a figure like Panthor should and does cost more to ship, why do we not see lower rates for lighter items?
Thought that 3 minute sellout seemed a little fishy? Well, it turns out that not all the Vikor's made it to Digital River in time for the sale. In a separate announcement, Mattel also let us know how they're dealing with the glitch that left many fans unable to add the battles stands to their order today.
