    I would like to know how well or how bad the bbts seacon set sold. They released a great combiner set for 60 bucks. Did it sell well enough for them to consider doin a menasor or computron exclusive? Is there anyway tfw could talk to them about doin that?

    They have 969 units left.

    IIRC, the Seacons in the Club colorscheme were initially offered to WalMart(?)
    and the deal fell through.

    Hasbro HK then ordered a run, and part of it was offered to BBTS.

    My guess is availability of molds is a key factor. The tooling for both Menasor and Computron is speculated to be at least partially missing.

    Excuse my ignorance, but how can you find out how many units they have in stock?; it could come in handy for later figures.
    Thanks for the replies

    Ebay:
    Put one in your shopping cart then adjust that 1pc to something absurd like 9999999pcs then it will automatically adjust your quantity to what they have in stock. Play with it and see what ya get.
