    For the most part I agree but do trust the big sellers when they say they have been shipped to them and are expected that week. dalianjj Doesn’t say much anymore. Fans toys always gets a lot of rumors I think due to them never being on time.

    I'm going with Toy Dojo or Chosen Prime if that price sticks. If it's not going to be cheaper there is no point in ordering from China.

    That’s the main reason I stopped ordering from him. On rare occasion when eBay has 20% off sometimes it makes it worth it but otherwise I just use US etailers.

    Fuuuck ... I needed this yesterday ... I’m contemplating moving in a few months and I want to cram in as much as I can now in order to confuse the wife into thinking they’re “old” toys ...anything post-move might get the marital embargo ...

    How do you explain the sudden dip in funds? Asking for a friend.

    Kapow UK have sent out invoices and only do so when informed by the manufacturer of a delivery date. They are stating end of October, which will have come from Fanstoys.

    If this date is not met it is because Fanstoys have not kept to the shipping date they advised Kapow UK.

    I prefer hearing them out then just waiting for the surprise, cause they might be right sometimes. Anyways, Dalianjj did tell me Quietus is next when i asked a week or two ago.

    Feels like I've been waiting forever for this guy while other figures came out.
    This, and the 2-4 remaining DJD to pretty much round out the core needs of my collection atm. Kinda annoyed sky lynx partially dropped before them.

    Particularly for FT products which are heavy. I think I will go through taobao for FT28 and FT29, even with 15% eBay flash sale, the prices on taobao seem to be the same or even slightly better.

    Where all y'all getting December from? The description says end of October. Please don't jinx us. :p

    From some reason ever since the FT Rouge his prices tends to start off high but then he lowers them over time.
    Generally Taobao has much better pricing especially for new FT items. If Baba ends up dropping his prices sooner than later coupled with a 30% off flash sale and his $5 off discount, he may be closer to Taobao pricing.

    Notice how baba has 40 available. He's preparing for the next flash sale onslaught. :D

    Yeah but why go with Baba if you can go get him from ShowZ for 140. I am guessing some other eBay seller will have this for 130. That's the one I am going for. Combined with 15% off, should be hefty savings.

    Kapow Toys told me when I asked that they'll have general stock in after the pre-orders are fulfilled, so I'm holding out for that. Which will also give me time to go out and get a mortgage...

    So what’s more of a tease - this or XTB’s Flipout?? We’ve seen what look to be production samples in box for weeks now, yet no movement .... I need beaucoup movement!

    See this confuses me. Baba as an eBay seller is listed at US$150. TCP and Dojo are listed at US$160. And as @divinecomedy pointed out, you should consider Show.Z at $140. Their service and support is fantastic

    Ebay:

    Strange, in EUR the price diference between Baba and Show's is 5'19€ which should be 5'68$ +/-

    Did you include shipping? Baba charges shipping and Show.Z is free. I think most US stores are also free for US shipping at least.
    I personally work off Aus dollars so numbers are different again for me and Show.Z (and occasionally TFDirect) are the only ones who offer me free shipping. But I use TaoBao and even WITH shipping it’s cheaper than all those other options. {shrug}
