    A little reading goes a long way. Someone is going to be mighty pissed at the end of this auction.

    Though there is a part of me that hates this type of selling. Outside of one line, the seller makes no effort to clarify it is a pre-order, and plays up everything else to sell the item.

    I contacted the highest bidder to explain him, hopefully he'll retract his bid.

    It is stated that it's a pre-order, even underlines it.

    Doesn't matter, it's half-buried in the ridiculously long description. Plus, the release date is wrong, that toy will be released in June, not May. That's because he used the same text as the one in his other auction for Protoform SS/Prime.

    Well... some people just love winning the bid war, even if they're not that interested in the item, and even if they end up backing out of the sale.

    One bidder withdrew his bid, and now the seller's cancelled the auction.

    funnt thing is that now at $0.99 it is a steal. Add in shipping and it will still be $25, which if I am not mistaken is about $15 less than retail for a leader class figure in the US.

    But of course the seller knows that and ended the auction.
