  • No Day of Sale for Ninjor?

    Looks like Ninjor (aka: "Ninja Warrior") will only be available to Club Eternia subscribers in 2015.

    From Mattycollector.com:

    Sharesies! Jitsu wears Ninja Warrior's belt (Nijor). And new armor clasp = tighter fit. Shipping in February 2015 only to Club Eternia subscribers.

    Not to be pedantic, but that's not quite what the captions says - really, you could read it as "...(automatically) shipping...only to subscribers (the rest of you peons have to wait for day of sale)."

    I hate to split hairs like this, but the current brand manager has forced me to parse things very carefully.
    Not every beast is tender, especially if there is genius in his making.

      The way that sentence is worded on Matty, it does sound like he won't be available as a "day of sales" figure.

        Just have to wait a year to get him I guess, just like Clamp Champ. Artificial demand will not sway me to overpay on the second hand market either.

          More manipulation tactics.

          If there's anything that fully characterizes Neitlich it's that... and his lies.

            If it's true, too bad, I wanted to get a second one to display with the alternate head. Their loss!

              And regarding that Ninjor production figure I see no improvements made on the vest/armor. The arms can rest better vertically because the sleeve holes were cut a little deeper on the bottom. The vest was also designed so it didn't reach the belt, I'm willing to bet that if if it did it would still be bigger than the waist like any other figure suffering from puffy armor.

              With that said, Ninjor looks good but will they be able to do the same with other figures? I doubt it.

                What's new with the gollum's marketing strategies....take it the sub sales going great,not,this is the same crap they pulled last year with clamp champ nothing new with this,just take the character that's gonna prove more popular and force people to buy the sub through panic....of course it worked with clamp champ,but will it work a second time......

                p.s. still loads of clamp champ for sale on ebay.

                  Now that the subscriptions are over, I really hope this figure is made available during regular day of sales. A cool figure like Ninjor packaged with 2 alternate heads will easily sell many figures, so they are just being foolish if this ends up being a subscription only item.

                    Totally!

                    No day-of sales hurts the line. It's easy money. It's a no-brainer. Making guys like Two-Bad and Ninjor no day-of, guys people would buy regardless, is just bad business. There's no sub to sell anymore so why play the day-of games anymore? Why not try to get as much money out of this line as possible? Every time there's a figure with 2 heads the hardcore fans want a second. So why not sell them? This is the stupidest thing I've seen in a long time. It's money on the table guys

                    Matty's got to realize that warehouse costs might suck but that is a part of business of selling physical products. Just like a coffee shop needs water, if you sell physical products on a mass scale you'll need a warehouse. You don't see Starbucks selling coffee grinds in a cup because the price of water went up a cent.

                      The warehouse storage cost holds not water. CA does not pay an inventory tax. They also have multiple Mattel Outlets to dump their overstock if they ever need to.

                    Probably Scott wants to keep this "Hype" trend within the collectors' market. Teela, Horde-Troopers, Shadow-Weaver, lollypop Hordak, Ram-Man, etc, all are in demand but won't be reproduced.

                        don't worry, you can buy one from the simps who bought multiple subs to keep the line alive.

                          I know I'll be selling mine (and I only bought one sub ). This figure holds no significance for me.
