    Here's hoping Air Raid pops back in too!

    Used the inventory trick: they have 144. And I'm only telling you lot with #145 safely in my PoL...not missing it again.

    i never knew vortex went out of stock. i ordered, well was a preorder, him a few days ago and got notice of shipment today.

    figured since this past weekend was when it was released they didnt have it instock so maybe the preorder had originally sold out?

    ^ He went out of stock like the day I decided to bite the bullet and get him. Maybe they were conservative with their pre-orders on this guy.

    ^ He's been $40 since day 1 of preorders. Kinda a bummer, but i guess it's the nature of importing.

    He was?

    I thought he was $37.99 at the beginning, ah well, still too pricey.

    I got mine in stock last week (currently in transit to my home, ETA Friday) and it did go out of stock quickly when it first went up. I remember it was made available again by preorder recently (I initially noticed it when all of the other Takara DotM preorders were put up this week), so it's a good thing for those that initially missed out that they still have a shot at getting one.

    Nah Air Raid and Vortex were "39.99" originally. The stuff they put up since the Tokyo Toy Fair was priced 37.99. I was like Wtf, but every place else I looked was sold out on Vortex and ebay had Air Raid @ $50+ before shipping. So I think BBTS is doing a decent price for two popular figs.

    Wow great news. If he is still around in a few weeks I might pick him up, but too much coming in right now I just can't swing it.
