    Funnily enough Bombusbee ended up with one of the worst prices for him after they decided to add a last minute $25 shipping charge. It was supposed to $189 with free shipping but it ended up being $215 for me, a good $15 or more than everywhere else. I knew I should've cancelled it.

    In general Bombusbee has the best prices so IDK why this was so different.

    Not a complaint, just an observation

    Same it was a bit of a surprise, someone posted it was available at showz on a FB page and I was a bit surprised I hadn't heard about incoming stock elsewhere first. Good on ya man congrats :D  Really good price for the guy!

    Yeah! Went to see what it was going for at BB after posting and that was a bit of a surprise! Their prices on other stuff has been much better, quite surprised it wasn't more in line with their Hoist/TB ones. Hopefully they keep with the nicer pricing going forward.

    Almost gave in and bought this guy but I'm holding out hope that Virtus will be better.

    I bought Apache partly due to ft fanboy status but also I do like him, however I do think a (solidly built) virtus could be a contender

    I was going to do the same but he just looks really dated compared to Virtus and Saltus.

    If Virtus looks good and gets good reviews when it comes out I might consider replacing Apache. Saltus never quite did it for me

    FYI. Apache is available at ShowZ for $169.99 as of this posting. That price was too good to pass up. Sorry to BBTS.

    That's a hell of a price. $40 less than what I ended up paying with Bombusbee. Damn. Almost tempted to buy another at that price.

    Shit!! Now I sound like my wife!

    Yeah this was the first Bombusbee figure I ended up paying more than other stores for. I wish I could cancel it but it's too late.

    I did exactly that when I saw this at 5am this morning. I’ve got one on the way from TCP but couldn’t pass up that price. I’m sure I can get my money back on the TCP one selling locally if I don’t end up keeping both. I probably wouldn’t have pulled the trigger if I had a cup of coffee in me when I saw it though.

    I’ve placed an order for one, maybe I’ll make a smaller sword with my 3D resin printer.

    I'm about to cancel my BBTS Apache order if someone wants to grab him, let me know and I'll wait.
