Mattel product showing up at Ollie’s Bargain Outlet stores
Monday, September 17th, 2012 by Pixel Dan
Reports are coming in that a lot of older Mattel product has been showing up at Ollie’s Bargain Outlet stores in the U.S. I don’t have any of these stores near me, but it appears lot of MattyCollector and older SDCC Exclusive items are hitting these stores for the cheap!
Among the items being found are the 12″ Movie Masters Superman figures for only $29.99, SDCC Green Lantern Killowog for $15.99, and even Masters of the Unvierse Classics SDCC He-Ro for $12.99!
This is good news for anyone who ever missed out on any of these items in the past and still wants to add them to their collections. Though it is interesting that all of these exclusive items are hitting retail outlets. Mattel must have had a TON of leftover stock of these particular items.
Special thanks to my good buddy Suine Hallock for filling me in on this sale,a nd snapping these pictures!
man if we could see the stone colors in He-Ro's staff, i would want to grab the other colors I do not have
No Ollie's in Springfield (Frown)
Closest one to me is 76 miles away. Poo. That's a little far for a toy-hunt.
According to the ad, it says that Mattel contacted Ollie's buyer looking to reduce inventory and he bought $2.1 million of product. Sheesh! That's a lot of inventory!
Send some of that MOTUC goodness my way! lol
I ordered a He-Ro some time back from Amazon, but never received it and got a refund. I'd still like one, and $12.99 can't be beat!
But their website is so annoying I couldn't stay on it for over 20 seconds…
You can't order from there, anyway. It's mainly just a store locator.
I went to two Ollie's about 2 weeks ago while I was back East visiting family. They had the Matty items but no He-Ro's, or any other MOTUC figures. I did pick up the Reeves Superman for a gift. I was hoping I'd find a JLU Giganta, mine has some really bad cracking happening on the dress.
Booo. I wish Matty put them up on their holiday sales. I know a lot of people would of bought some at these prices.
No Ollie's near me. 🙁
went to 2 local Ollie's around me and no MOTU or no Superman, they had everything else Dan showed. I live in Ohio
Saw these at my local Ollie's. Jr Supes, anyway. No sign of Killowog. Lots of Transformers, though. AND the Joe Hiss Scout and Cycle Armor made a very brief appearance(snagged a pair for my cousin). Ah, to be at Ollies now that the Christmas reset is here…
I was hoping for a Plastic Man but found one here instead http://www.supermanstuff.com/categories/Action-Fi…
I live near two Ollie's, I didn't find any MOTUC at either, but there were a few "Joker as Gotham City Thug" figures and a whole lot of slimed Egons w/Slimer. Also a ton of Killowogs, General Zods and Lex Luthors.
Looks like I'm swinging by Ollie's the next time I go out 😀
[…] It does seem strange that Mattel was not the one who sold them the product, though. A while back it was reported that a lot of Matty stock had shown up at Ollie’s discount stores. Perhaps the same 3rd party who bought that stock also bought this stock and sold to Wal-Mart. I […]
