    My cynical minds sees it as "Just the beginning". Whenever a figure is sought out it's difficult to find one/them for less painful prices.

    Hell no. Did you see how much they are asking for that case? $110. That's like paying $50 per Windcharger... Cause you know nobody bought that case for the other figures.

    Hahaha well ok then. I'm jealous of you. I was thinking of getting the case but I just wanted Windcharger. I would of had to get rid of the other figures at ok prices to feel ok with the purchase. But there are a few others looking to do the same and just figured it would be hard to sell the other figures in the case with all the competition.

    This is why BBTS to me is nothing more than a scalper who happens to run an online store. $18.99 for WC pre-order BWHAHAHA yeah right.

    ^That's a hell of a sight less than ebay or trading with the members who can get him. Try that and see how that goes for you. Wish I'd have GOTTEN to order them from BBTS.

    I'm still floored at the fact that Windcharger is worth $110 to people.

    Maybe because you have two? lol The worth is at it's highest when you WANT it, not when you HAVE it man. :D  Gosh the times I got something in hand and was like "Why did I pay that much for this?". A lot.

    Unless you wanted all of the other scouts, then he's worth about $9.16 to some :D

    That makes me question someone's money management skills right there.

    I'm really considering canceling my order and just buying a spare from here. Talk about late night impulse buying. I feel just dumb now that I'm thinking about it.

    I was charged though, so how does BBTS store credit work? That i'll use easily.

    Store credit just goes to your account. You can see it in your account page. Just send them an email. It's really easy.

    Okay I canceled. Will it just subtract automatically from the store credit with my other pre-orders (namely the warpath box, which isn't a rip off)?
