It's been a little bit of a rough patch for subscribers of MattyCollector.com's Masters of the Universe toy line. Looks like Matty's finally got a handle on things.
One of the best things about subscribing to the various lines that Mattel features on it's 'made for collectors' web store mattycollector.com is that you are guaranteed you figure. But in December of 2011 (last month) that didn't happen.
December's figure, the villainous (and cool looking) Demo-Man, never made it to homes across the Earth because of a shipping error. Digital River is the shipper of choice for Matty and they seriously fell short of receiving their complete shipment of Demo's in time from the factory in time. So it wasn't a very Demo Christmas for anyone- in fact, ol' Demo just arrived for shipping this week. Which is nuts. Because it's almost a month late.
The good news is that, if you had ordered a Demo-Man (or have a subscription), you're getting your order very soon. The bad news (and it's not really all that bad) is that the 2012 schedule got all knocked out of wack too because of a similar issue.
