    I'm not especially concerned with this. I'm sure an eventual Berserk will be a desired figure, but other than the X version of Jive, every FT release over the last few years has been pretty readily available.

    I can't think of a single FT figure that has required a preorder to secure in last couple years. We're well past the days of FT scarcity.

    They were directed by FT to cancel those POs years ago. It was always going to be resolicited, TCP was just hurting themselves by keeping them open for as long as they did.

    That doesn't mean we don't all try to get in our POs at our preferred retailer, only to see the PO slots (at least) sold out in 3 seconds. I'm not saying you won't be able to get one, just FOMO + PTSD.

    Oh, I'm definitely no better.
    *looks longingly at the couple hundred dollars in FT preorders at Show.Z*

    Good way of telling us which retailer not to use.

    Five years of "have you heard any news on this?" Or "Can you try contacting someone at Fanstoys?!" I don't blame them.

    I suppose, however if someone puts in a full money preorder it should either get honored or have your actual money returned. The gift certificate crap that only works on another purchase from them annoys me.

    Certainly. However, the Berserks that go to Showz will be missing his entire right leg. The only way to remedy the issue will be for you to purchase Ft Max. They aren't going to tell us which piece of Ft Max the leg will come with so you just have to buy them all and swig some hopium. No guarantees that the leg will be in the particular ones you buy either. In which case you just have to keep buying until you get one. Its kinda genius really.

    $144.99. Just checked my pre-order, which I made on 4/8/2021.

    At this point, I just figured it wasn't going to happen and since I have the Star Toys version, I'm in no hurry for it. I'll probably use the credit for something else.

    Does anyone remember way back when FT pre-orders went live during odd hours and people scrambled to get one in? Sites were crashing and everything... Those were the days!

    News Flash: Berserk will be a build-a-figure with pieces bundled with the individual parts of Fort Max. Which will be divided into seven separate releases. At five hundred quid each. With a ten year gap between releases.

    This was the last FT preorder I had at TCP so now my oldest preorders are KFC God Ginrai now. All of my remaining preorders are XTB and all basically due June 2024. What a joke. I am lucky from the beginning I always did my preorders to be invoiced upon arrival. I had dealt with the prepaid crap from others before and got lucky that I recovered my money on a few orders when people went out of business.

    The pre-order I made on Aliexpress disappeared because the seller's company closed.

    One thing I've never done, felt comfortable doing, or straight up considered is preorders through sites like eBay and Aliexpress. Stores there are more inconsistent than regular online stores.
