    No need to worry your pretty little head about it... Like I previously stated, and like we ALL knew, they would eventually be sold on eBay:

    I feel like someone should let Dr. Wu know that this seller is charging for something that was supposedly sent to them to give away for free. I know they paid for it and that it’s technically theirs to do with as they want, but it’s still pretty scummy, imo…

    I don't think they were really sent to her to give away for free like you say. They were preorder bonuses and she placed the preorders. They are hers to do whatever she pleases with now. And Dr Wu probably only cares that she keeps buying from him as she buys a large volume to sell.

    Wu's friendly with his sellers and you can see some doing the same on taobao (but at 10yuan which is <$2), but more importantly small 3Ps can barely influence sellers outside Mainland China, even less so if they are a reseller or dropshipper.

    She's in mainland China, but Wu's still not going to care.

    Also, $10 with "free" shipping vs $2 and added shipping probably aren't all that different in the end.

    I'm not sure that is the case though... If you go to eBay and type in "Dr. Wu medical bed" you'll notice that there are multiple sellers that are offering this item, and they all have the same stock photos so I'm certain that they're affiliated with Dr. Wu to some extent.

    This is also what I kind of took away after buying Dr. Wu stuff off of eBay. All of those Chinese sellers are vendors for Dr. Wu

    Exactly! That's why I knew that these medical beds would eventually be sold individually on eBay. It's Dr. Wu's MO to get everyone to buy his stuff either by labeling them as "extremely limited" or by offering an extremely limited bonus item. Ironically these limited items eventually get sold on eBay in large quantities lol.

    Haha yea I love supporting a company with a good product like Dr. Wu, but I’m definitely not a fan of all these little sales gimmicks. I guess it’s just to be expected lol

    Agreed. I feel like the gimmicks have really increased this year for the MicroMaster stuff. Previous years the the cartoon deco generally was packaged together. Now instead of Grapple/Perceptor and then a limited deco set were getting Perceptor/Hauler and SG Perceptor/Grapple. Then Planet Galvatron packed with every Galvatron redeco.

    It is a bit like NewAge; love their stuff, but I'm annoyed at their push to make you buy decos you don't want just to get an accessory.

    Just wanted to mention that I got an answer from TFSafari, which is as expected, that they have a certain stock of the beds still, which were provided as per the stock received to cover the pre-orders (and didn't sell the number) and so will provide them until they run out. (So it's a gamble at this point, but the faster one orders now would offer better odds)

    Now get SS Perceptor behind him and either XTB or FT Perceptor behind him to obtain PERCEPTION!

    Ditto! Finally shipping (hopefully with the beds) and Galvatron should be in transit by next week.

    It's feast or famine with this line, but it should be a feast for awhile.
