They say writing soothes the soul. Well, after having to get up in the wee hours of this Australian morn to try to order Battle Cat from Mattycollector.com, my soul sure needed some soothing!

Share my pain: http://www.actionfigureblues.com/2010/02/trip-on-river-digital-my-battle-for_17.html

Enjoy!

Andy

Yeah I had a look at prices earlier, and it's not just crazy what they're being listed for at Buy Now, but what people are actually willing to bid for them.

that is one of the reasons i do not bother ever trying to start buying the line again for its crazy what some collectors like you andy have to go through to get that piece you want. for having to be up at 3 am to go online to get battle cat proves what a devoted collector and a little nuts for motu you are. and another reason Mattel should just try and find a way to get the thing to retail for bet its costing them a fortune when they have to remake the figure to fill demand.

Seriously, with Mattel's pattern of re-releases, wouldn't you just wait if you miss out?

Great write up Andy,really enjoyed that.It's always fun laughing at someone else's pain i guess.

I have to admire yours[and others]dedication to your collections,i can't really appreciate the angst of trying to deal with Digital River having never been a part of these Matty frenzies.
