Semi dick move but hey can't blame 'em for making a buck. Why should them sell 'em for $100 when half the buyers will turn around and flip 'em for $300+?

The sad part is that someone will probably buy them. I feel sorry for the people that didn't get a chance to get them at such a limited number and have the retailer save some to sell at a much higher price.

NOTHING in this hobby has a set stock price

2 weeks?? This figure sold out month ago and fans have been screaming and moaning creating hype and demand driving up the price since.

Fans are often their own worst enemy

The reason this was a dick move is because that was a TF Source exclusive. So basically, they hold stock, then sell the exclusive at a jacked price.

If I can get this anywhere, more power to them, but this is definately a dick move. I think I am mainly going with BBTS from now on.

I wouldve paid 150 for it but $360!! WTF kinda shady shit are they running at TFSource? This is no fair, there are people who legitimately want to purchase one not to resell.
