    Has anyone preordered from 6hk666666 on ebay? I've seen them mentioned here, but not sure if those were regular orders.

    I have almost exclusively gotten beast box stuff through him recently. You're at the mercy of Speedpak shipping, which can sometimes take a while, but he packs well and I usually get them really quick.

    Sorry, Earthrise or I guess technically Generations Selects. What I get for posting with 4 hours sleep and no coffee.

    Yup, I've ordered a few beastie boxy things from them (three orders total). Packed well and got here pretty quick. Seems the bottle neck was more USPS for me than SpeedPak.

    Half of my beastboxes have come from him. All packed well and shipped fast. The only time I had to wait more than 3 weeks it was because of customs.

    Got Tukuru and Baludes through them, the red box robot and blue transparent spider. Both arrived pretty fast, all things considering, and well packed.

    Still don't understand why Raphael has no pupils but Michelangelo does

    probably a style choice based off their personalities, the pupilless Raph looks angrier, the pupil having Mikey looks more jovial, which fits their usual dispositions in turtle lore.

    It is very weird. I'd rather them all with no pupils, but I suppose that is an easy fix.

    If this was Hasbro, I'd say it's so they could sell you the toon/toy/comic accurate redecos.

    I have, it went very well. (Specifically I have both done normal orders and bought preorder stuff).

    So bad news for people interested in Vaporwave, I got response from 52Toys on TB "This is a lottery activity, you need to buy product of 399 yuan in this shop , and then you can get a lottery chance , if you win , you can buy this product."

    So it seems like they are trying to find new ways to keep resellers from buying up limited releases.

    Wow that is so oddly specific. So you gotta spend $62 for a chance to spend $23 (plus shipping on both)? Are they copying Nintendo's bonus item method now?

    This!


    So what I'm reading is that $85 on ebay will be considered a steal? o_O

    NOT do limited releases.

    I really have no idea what to expect, it is also the VIP release for this month, a part of me is assuming resellers will just buy a bunch of extra stock in normal figures to resell (like the TMNT if they are in fact exclusive to China.) But they might end up being over $100.

    I have no idea what they are thinking, since according to Fox this business keeps pissing off fans in China too, not just those of us elsewhere.
