    Enough B*TCHING, how can we arrange so that at least some of us can in some way or another attain these figs and beat the ebay scalpers (if any)? I've been checking TFsource, A3&UP, and BBTS all day, and haven't seen any mention of these figs yet. I'd gladly drop serious cash for a Tcracker. This is a brotherhood of fans, let's think of something, instead of being at each other's throats! Do the TFW sponsors have any plans? Mods can delete this if this is out of line.

    BBTS will get some for sure. They'll be over-priced, but they'll be available. Lord knows I'll nip this one in the bud.

    I really can't say how until they actually start taking preorders on the 22nd. I know TakTom Hobby Market (who is going to sell SW) accepts foreign issued credit card, but not sure if Ganbo Hyakkaten (TC) does. I'll report back, and if possible, write up a tutorial about how to order using proxy service. I am expecting $70 or so per figure, though, because there'll be so many fees invoulved. Stay tuned :)

    Someone on Allspark is taking pre-orders for SW/TC as a pair for 120$ with 20$ shipping.

    So all other prices gotta be comparative to that or else risk being ignored. That sounds about right of where the price will end up.

    Depends. If for example Ganbo accepts multiple order per customer, someone in the US can organise a group buy, which will reduce the price. I'd have offered if I wasn't in Australia. I'm quoting $70 if you order just one figure by yourself (most expensive way possible). But as I said, have to wait and see what happens on the 22nd. If one can't pay with a foreign credit card, my whole promise is pointless.

    That's who I've ordered from, found out about them from his email as I hadn't been on here.

    It's going to be 12:00 pm on the 22nd, so as of now it's still 14 hours away ;)  I don't know if I can be home at the exact time, though...

    It's not going to be a group buy offer unless someone in the US volunteers it :) 

    Crystal Convoy is going to be a totally different story. It's like Wonder festival exclusives. You can't get one unless you attend the event or win the draw at eHobby. This one is going to be very pricey because you can probably only get it via BBTS/ebay.

    As has been said, if you want both TC and SW, $140 shipped is a good price I think.

    Can anyone volunteer to manage this group buy?

    I will ask a seller I know in Japan to see what he can do.

    What a hurry for a Classics Screamer's repaint......just a joke, hope you guys can get one and at a decent price. For the time being I will be happy with the Henkei Screamer I own.
