    Just another mention there may be no limit and if there is it may be the etailers choice. I have 2 from Amazon...if they're limited beyond that I don't know.

    Nope, might as well go with Ebay when the market gets saturated with Groove then...At least the other E-Tailers have there's at a reasonable deluxe price.

    I know, right? I think that's what I am looking forward to most. When EVERYONE unloads on eBay and suddenly the collective dawning hits.

    Just got an email from toydojo indicating their allotment did not go through and they had to secure from another source resulting in a much lower than anticipated allocation for them. They said they are reducing anyone who ordered more than 1 to 1 and are trying to fill as many orders as possible. Hopefully I get in on one from them as I don't really want to have to go on the hunt for this again

    Are you kidding me? That's...really quite shitty. Even a smaller store like Dorkside Toys was able to sell them as MSRP. FFS... BBTS needs to be brought down a peg or two.

    I kinda expected that from BBTS at $25 for a Deluxe Figure of Groove,but lets just wait and watch to see how long it takes them to sell out,my guess is 4 days at that price.Good Luck with your sales BBTS,I won't be ordering Groove from yall.

    It's not live yet. Basically the listing is there, but it's put as "sold out" so that no one orders until it's ready to go.

    I can't wait. Yeah, BBTS is expensive but I've got a PoL going and the extra I pay over Amazon is saved on shipping. Can't wait to get another Groove.

    I'm still so glad I went with Takara though. Guaranteed my Groove months ago. :D

    When do you guys think the stores will put Groove up? Probably tomorrow morning but I wouldn't be too surprised if they do it at midnight... Maybe.

    That's just ridiculous fucking price gouging by Big Bad Toy Store. They ought to be ashamed of themselves.

    MSRP is $18.99. Amazon had Groove for $16.99. That's an additional $6-$8 markup by BBTS.

    If you plan on buying from BBTS and add in shipping, you're already at the early bird eBay prices of more than $30

    Hey guys,does anyone know if Chosen Prime is gonna have Groove up for sale tonight,I can't find one mention if they are or not.I was thinking of ordering Groove from there but if they're not gonna have him I should probably look elsewhere (and not Scalper Site BBTS at their $24.99 pricetag for him).So if anyone knows will you let me know.Thanks.
