    WOW TALK ABOUT A SURPRISE ! ! ! ! Today I received an email from Curt at TFSource. It took a couple times reading it for it to set in but here is part of the body:

    Quote from the email:

    "Congratulations! Through our Shadow Scyther Raffle you were selected to purchase for the original price ($94.99/$96.99 Mint box) one of the remaining pieces not yet sold. These were made available through customer cancelations, or through initial stock we set aside to handle defective products/returns......."



    I didn't even know there was a raffle going on for Shadow Scyther. I feel like I won the lottery. I have been kicking myself for not ordering this when they first put up the pre-order. Normally I don't hesitate and this time I did and missed out.

    BUT now this wonderful surprise, I can't belive it. And I can't believe I get it for regular original retail that is the best part of all. They could have just put these up on ebay and cashed in but it shows they are a step above the rest.

    All I can say THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU ! ! ! ! !

    Now it just means more money for me to purchase other things from them.

    Actually, they were originally going to skip ebay and sell it on their own site for ebay prices until the fandom called them on it. So a 'step above the rest'? Hardly. Congrats on being picked.

    I guess this will probably be the thread to talk about this...

    I originally posted that I got the same e-mail over in the news forum. So excited.

    Great job TFSource! You pleased the fans!

    So, can we safely say that TFSource is true to their words now? They made good with their promise initially. ;)

    I think we can agree TFSource made good on the promise that they were forced to make.

    If you don't believe the egg on their face created this raffle, you're only fooling yourself.

    So now for all the people who got a chance to get it for retail will be listing all 20 on ebay for the market price. I rather TFSource selling for market so that will just help pay off things to stay in business.
    Basically TFSource just gave 20 people an extra $200 for free.

    I'm not selling mine either. I'm either keeping it for the Transformers Collector's Club Sideburn figure, or for a Henkei Wildrider if I can get one!

    If I ever sold it, it would only be because of a financial emergency.
