    I guess that's the reason, but that should only make a difference for the aftermarket, where demand for one would be higher than for the other and thus the price increases.

    But for the manufacturer to increase the price on one variant (that's not more limited or rare) when production costs for both variants must be about the same.... That's something I have never seen before. FansToys must really be re-releasing them just to make a quick buck I guess...

    Bummer they’re not selling them individually, as I only want the purple chest version.

    There have been a small handful of retailers who are. You could try Madhaus Toys on Facebook, but just be aware that I'm saying that he is selling them individually, just that a couple of sellers like him seemed to be. There's another guy on the 'FansToys Release Schedule' thread who has his email address and pricing info posted and he seems to be selling them individually.

    Thanks. Yeah I’ve seen this. I have all the original releases, just never purchased the Purple version. The price for it is a bit too steep for me as I paid $65-80 originally.

    yeah I got that email, too. Any ideas what the price will be? $400+ seems pretty steep considering the other figures of this scale can be had for $90.

    I've got purple chest and would rather have grey (in fact originally ordered grey but Kapow sent the wrong one). Happy to swap chests if you want.

    Thanks for the offer, but I just wanted the purple chest as a stand alone. I was too cheap to biy it when they were originally available.

    Will they send out the purple version on its own or do you still have to wait till all three are released?

    The order confirmation says: "Your order will be sent very soon." but as far as i know they are meant to be shipped together?

    They will be released Sunday on China.

    One preorder of the bugs paid, the other ones will come shortly.

    I still have 4 more preorders, if anyone didn't manage to preorder and is interested in one of the sets (all purple), just send me a DM. It seems they will all be paid and sent separately.

    Just got a notice from Bombusbee to pay for shipping. $12.61 to US. Guess it'll be shipping shortly.

    I got the purple. Email was for either or, though. Here’s a screenshot of the email.

    So I was logged in and followed the link from your image: Shipping Cost - FT-12 & FT-12T but when adding to cart no matter the shipping choice I chose it is listed as $0.01 USD per item... not sure if it is a coding error on their site. Super jank imo...

    Got my shipping invoice. Just 5 bucks where I am, that's nice. So it'll be $15 total shipping on top of the $515 I paid for the set with the gray version, making it $530 for all three bugs and shipping, or $176.60 for each. Not too bad, all things considered.

    Just keep going, it should charge the shipping after. The $0.01 is basically just a placeholder amount until it gets to the shipping section.
