Received the following email.. Good news for me.. but maybe not so good for some others... "Hi – I wanted to let you know that your preorder for the BAPE convoy will be filled. Our buyers were able to secure only a small amount of pieces because it was much more limited than anticipated. You were first in line and your preorder will be filled. Please note that if you ordered more than one piece, we reduced your order to 1 total piece so we could get the figure to as many customers as possible. We will be sending out a mass email titled ‘BAPE Convoy – Bad News’ to ALL preorder customers – please disregard that notice, your orders will fill Thanks!

Bape has about 20 some stores across Japan. Each store had a few dozen of these and that's it (although I heard Bape kids had more stock than the adult stores). Based on what I saw I am guessing the production run is well under 1000. There were whole families lined up along with the regular scalpers I see at every show. So there are a lot of regular Japanese people trying to cash in on Transformers now."
