San Diego Comic-Con seems like a far time away, but if you have recently tried to get tickets over the past few years it has become difficult.
This year, likely in response to much of last years ticket troubles- they are launching a new "Member ID" sign-up requirement. This will likely facilitate easier access to obtain tickets for the show. Be sure to follow the SDCC twitter and email feeds. Get more details here
The Mattycollector team again delivered answers to the questions you asked!! Keep them coming via email or comments.
1- Since the GB subscription is
ended, any chance for newly tooled pieces to be offered at higher
pricing, like the terror dogs? It is something we are looking into.
Stay tuned for more details!
2- Is the pricing on the Snake Mountain stands the same as the Grayskull
Stands? There may be a slight price increase due to rising overall
3- How is the scent infused into Stinkor in the manufacturing process?
It is mixed into the plastic at a liquid stage just as it was done in
the vintage line.
4- Will some TOD Sorceress be held back for the end of the year or only if
she fails to sell? We will allocate a certain amount of product for
online sales at the end of the year from total production and add to
that any unsold product from the traveling conventions.
5- There have been some reports of problems with the Vac-Metal On Hurricane
Hordak- is this due to manufacturing or like anything in that a few bad
pieces make it through? Every figure is hand made so there will always
be some discrepancies.
