    As it says...

    Sadly, the Scorch, Double Punch, and SG Ravage set is gone (story is that the dealers snatched up the last ones just after the convention closed).

    Wow, I did not think that set would make it out of the con. That's a steal compared to what's being sold on the aftermarket.

    I mentioned it in the tech specs thread. Wonder how many they had left.

    Really? During the convention, Saturday maybe, Gog said the other set sold out, just not as fast as the Sharkticons.

    Not really. I sold my Cindersaur for $42 shipped which is half of what this is going for. Rapido is a little inflated but can be had for a decent price also. It seems most of the add-ons have leveled out and aren't going for a arm and a leg. Once the dust settles and everything has been snatched up, Rapido and Scorch will probably rise in stock while DP and Cindersaur will be had for a reasonable amount.

    Ordered, thank you! Now if someone would just tell me when its time to order Punch/Counter Punch I would be ecstatic!

    I'm sure he must have been mistaken. Besides the evidence above, Walky has said that he bought a set as the convention was closing at 3:30.

    After a strange twist of events, I find myself without a Rapido. I'm sure I'll kick myself later but I wasn't the biggest fan of Cindersaur. What to do...anyone want to split a pack? Hit me up asap if you do. 50/50.

    Yeah, I was in the sales room right before close on Sunday, and the only figure set that had a SOLD OUT sign on it was the gnaw set. The other two were available as far as I know.

    I figured there would be leftovers of this set. Towards the end of the show there were still boxes of it.

    Too bad they won't split the sets. I have no needs for an ugly overpriced Dino trying to look like something else.

    I just ordered an extra set. This one can remain sealed and I can display the other one.

    Fair enough. I wasn't there either way, so have to go on whatever you guys say, but... what "evidence above"?

    Did FunPub really sell off the Sharkticon display set too? :lol

    Yeah, I had a feeling Cindersaur would be the dud of the set, and I think it's showing as true. Rapido is awesome though, and he's worth the cost of the set IMO. I bet if Rapido had been sold solo, that he'd have sold out. That headsculpt is very nice too.

    They still have over 20 of them, and I'm sure that at some point it'll sell out, but it'll take a while. Calling it "limited supply" is a pretty obvious ploy to try to get people to rush out and buy it, but I see this set hanging around for a while. If it had really been a low number, they would have said something like "Only 30 sets left!" Probably similar to Elita-One and Razorclaw.
