Matty Collector closed with a whisper rather than a bang late last year (although the final sale — which I stupidly delayed in ordering until it was too late — was an explosion of value), taking with it many of our cherished toy lines. While the Masters of the Universe Classics line is effectively dead (Super 9 is making *some* figures, but so far they just seem like repaints of previously released MotUCs… and I stupidly delayed pulling the trigger there as well), the older releases may briefly live on in Mattel’s shop.
Mattel has added many of Matty Collector’s Masters of the Universe figures to its shop, including the classics and minis. On top of that, the site is offering free shipping on all of its Masters items during this week.
While this seems like great news, many of these figures have been available through Mattel’s ebay sellers store and, in some instances, at a cheaper price. Plus not everything they list is actually in stock, including convention items like the Hover Robots 3-pack.
All the same, I suppose this is good news since it feels a bit less like overstock they’re still trying to get rid of… although that’s almost certainly what these are. And, on the brighter side, it seems to include some things I haven’t seen listed in their ebay seller’s store.
