    I know the figure is a limited release, anyone know how limited exactly? Does it say somewhere on the box? Mine is still in the #^@&!)$ post office so I don't really know or not.

    Ebay:
    1. Add the item to cart.
    2. Enter a large number for quantity, i.e., 9999.
    3. Update cart.
    4. It'll update with the maximum number of units in stock.

    As nice as he is, Warbot is still a third party release. IMHO, not worth getting him in a hurry. There will be more stuff up-coming, so i'll just have to save up. :D

    You obviously don't know about the crazy markups people try and resell Fanproject's stuff for. If you ever want to get the figure at a decent price you are going to want to order now rather than pay even more later.

    :lol  Yeah, am acutely aware about the marked up prices for these stuff. :D 

    Just that it's not really on my top priority of to get things so far... more power to those who want it. :thumb :

    As for Warbot being a limited release, that's a big possibility considering it's a third party release. :D

    the quanties dont mean too much because they always order more as they needed. so they wont be out anytime soon. when they do run out they just backorder more. im going to wait on this one. im waiting to see if how many reissues and recolored versions comes out on this mold.

    I don't think Defender is going to get a re release like City Commander. I am sure he will get repainted into another character, but I doubt we will see him in these colors again.

    Even the online stores will start to mark up the price as the stock dries up and they aren't able to order more. With City Commander the price jumped about $20 on TFSource before it finally sold out. Or the more current example is the Snowman Armor add-on kit. It was originally $60, now it's $99. How long before that happens with Warbot is unknown.
