    GCI Toys is getting this on Saturday, so basically late this week/early next week we should be getting shipping notices.

    Things like exclusives build hype just as a talking point. On the theory that there's no such thing as bad press, merely discussing the fact that there's an exclusive is going to pique the interest of those that didn't know about it and potentially draw in customers otherwise untapped. The cost for the exclusive is minimal, and I think for most people the impact of an exclusive is negligible.

    While I don't believe that artificial scarcity or rarity is necessarily "anti-consumer" or "anti-collector" (especially since most collectors base their entire hobby around obtaining rare or exclusive items), I do understand that it's frustrating when we're forced to make a choice between our favored retailer versus a less favored one over a risk of missing out on something interesting. I feel similar frustrations when there are con "exclusives" even when I know they'll probably show up on an e-tailer site 2 months later (Looking at you, Dakar Rally Terrageas (sp)).

    Ultimately, I say we comment with our currency. Honestly, if enough people simply fail to buy from PSX, exclusive be damned, then the marketing ploy didn't work and they'll be forced to reassess next time. Just my thoughts on it. Hell, I didn't even know about Felisaber's penguin until about 2 months after owning him...

    So the last time I badmouthed TFSource for always being late, I had an invoice the next day.

    So come on TFSource, when you gonna send this, like, Thanksgiving? CAHHHH MAN.

    (is it working)

    Well RTB already has theirs it seems so the psx copies should definitely be going out this week. I imagine ActionRobo won't be far behind.

    I can't wait for this figure, but I'm going to wait some reviews to go up.

    Getting burned badly on my first preorder - albeit from another company - has put me off preordering.

    Looks awesome, however. Mine is primarily staying in miner/gladiator mode.

    With MMC I don't think you have much to worry abt. Even their 'bad' releases aren't that terrible to the point where it's an immediate write-off.

    Jaegertron is immediate write off. I "misplaced" him somewhere and have no wish to see it again.

    Looks like the answer to arm fillers is no.

    Major bummer! Maybe this will be the extra part from PSX. :p 

    Is this the release version? Is he out yet?

    If so bummer that the squiggly lines are not painted black.

    Add the Azalea mould there. I swear to God that Salvia gets worse and worse everytime I play with it.

    In general, I would agree; however, Jaegertron is so bad it's legitimately the only figure I've thought about selling.

    If it wasn't for the fact that I love Lockdown as a character, I probably would have ditched the dog.

    I disagree since in my opinion Azalea is a pretty good action figure. :) 

    Maybe MMC should do a continuum upgrade set with a different, smaller gun, a plug for the hole in his forearm an inlay an for the squiggly lines.

    Thought they were on an earlier test shot. Maybe they felt that made the lines stand out too much and look like some really goofy chest hair or something? :)
