    Ooh great! This means I can commit to their Skullcruncher!
    *checks retailer*
    ... Aaaaand Skullcruncher is out of stock. Trapped in a vicious circle lol!

    (on a serious note, what's with FT preorders selling out instantly these days? I missed several FT figures last year because of this trend. Isn't the whole point of preorders a system of securing as many orders as possible before starting manufacture, so you can then produce enough figures to meet demand? I'm getting tired of having to wait for/hope for reissues).

    I am with you with the point of pre-orders to.secure the amount of units to make. Not the other way around. Maybe business works different in China?

    What kind of logic is that? I want it now! I want it now! I don’t care if my combiner implodes after I put it together!! I want to now!

    Not the topic to complain about it, I know, but Chomp's torso really seems off, proportionally.

    Between the three of them, I think Dracula/Mindwipe looks the best.

    It’s called “battle-action” and costs $100 more.

    Guess I'll figure out how much they're charging for the reissues, then knock some off and list my first-rounds for sale.

    Same, I don't know how they do it but whenever I've had parcels from them, it looks like it's shipped from a uk address. Maybe they have some sort of company registered here that ships the imported goods on. At least since the Insecticons came out. Prior orders had customs on but marked low.

    Ok that's interesting. I quit ordering from overseas a few years ago because it seemed like literally everything got stung by huge customs bills that made it not worth bothering. Might give them a go!
