My only exclusive for this year is the Mattel Thomas Super Friends Minis set. I have the first two so I'd like to keep getting them. But they are easy. They never sell out.

I am sticking to a strict budget this. I am actually going to leave my credit and bank cards at home. Whatever cash I have is all I am using. Thomas Super Friends is the only exclusive. Other than that, I am just looking at tshirts from Super 7, Jungle Boy, and Marvel. Even if money was no object, I don't have room to display anything over the next three years while I am in grad school. I am packing all my figures into boxes and leaving them in my aunt's condo storage.

I don't think Hasbro has ever done a presale. Mattel has of course, though only for some items. I'd be happy if Hasbro did though ...

I wonder if Mattel will do presale this year since they shut down their online store?

ETA: Guess they just replaced Matty Collector shop with a new generic shop? I just went and looked and there is an online store.....so I don't understand why they shut down Matty Collector.

Wondering the same, also if club subscribers would still get early access. Guessing no on that since they canceled the club.

Happy New Year, fans and collectors. We’re glad you stopped by! As you look around the site, you’ll notice that some things look the same … and some things have changed. The biggest change, of course, is that you won’t be able to buy anything from the Matty Shop. We’re now partnering with our friends over at Super7 for the manufacture and distribution of our Masters of the Universe and other adult collector lines. But don’t worry, we’re not going away completely! We’re still committed to providing a place for you, the fans, to share your love for all things MOTU, ThunderCatsâ„¢, DCU, and all the other collector lines you enjoy. The Fan Forums and Fan Zone sections are alive and kicking, and your friends look forward to seeing (and hearing from you) there. In the meantime, head on over to the Super7 MOTU store to check out the great selection of figures, accessories and apparel that’s available now, with more to come!

As we mentioned in our last update, the Shop here at MattyCollector.com is now closed. But we’re still here for you, toy fans! We have plenty of products to tell you about from Masters of the Universe® and other entertainment lines, and you’re going to want them all. Click on over to the Mattel Shop and you’ll find it packed with releases from MOTU, Suicide Squadâ„¢, Star Trekâ„¢, DC Comicsâ„¢, and much more.

( MattyCollector held two great close out sales late last year, which SamTurtledove, koop1974 and I covered at the end of this thread here: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login )

Not very sought after?  Every time we tried last year there was a massive line and everything was sold out...any booth with Pops is going to have chaos.

The Blizzard booth, much like Funko and Hasbro is chaos to get to.
