    Because people are idiots and always want to believe companies are playing games with them.

    Small run of 2,000 sets per bug... even at the original rrp of $80 thats 480k worth of stock people think a small company like fanstoys would be sitting on for a rainy day. Oh lets not forget all the other figures they are reissuing from their "warehouse" finds.... In other words. A small niche company like FT isn't sitting on Millions of dollars of stock for a laugh. These are re-issues. As has every other release been that people think were held back stock.

    Oh, you mean the Berserk that they hide from everyone because they don’t want to make money? Wouldn’t you want the figure to be designed and manufactured properly so it doesn’t turn out to be a pile of garbage? You should pick up XTB Locke and see what it’s like when a company tosses something to market haphazardly.

    I think the only thing that displeases me about Forager, besides the minor QC issues, is that hes the only one of the trio that doesn't come with a a second set of different style insect legs

    I think it’s because his legs are already more buggy than the other two’s original legs.
