    ShowZ has had Thomas I got mine last week from them. You may want to pay your balance and possible extra shipping $ to have him shipped.

    Funny thing is... If I were single... I would let my carelessness get the better of me and I would have bought it...

    But noooooo, I have to be responsible...

    We don't even know who to tell.

    Where did you get the lights for the display? They are exactly what I need. Any help will be appreciated

    Unless we have contacts working in the TFSource warehouse and/or bookkeeping department, how can we actually catch them red-handed?

    When do we anticipate a second run do you think? There’s categorically NO WAY I’m paying the prices I see atm.

    Oddly enough no balance has been asked for yet? Pre-ordered it in march.

    To be on safe side I've just paid it. I'm not missing out on this figure but I'm not paying above £200 for it either.

    There was a known incident several years ago where it was a store exclusive...so there was no stock acquired at a higher price. They said they were saving them for a rainy day or some ridiculous shit...they deservedly took some heat and ended up selling them for the original price, but it looked bad.

    I hope they dont reissue this guy soon, Ik it sucks missing a figure (im waiting on lots of reissues) but I want them to use that time for an announced figure or older reissues

    Will he be like 250 for reissue?

    And there's the problem right there for me. Even if he gets reissued he's probably going to be like £200 at least. I honestly don't think I'll be willing to pay that much for him. I want him but not that badly.

    Show.z is shipping out the paid orders first then sending out the pre-orders pay now notifications.

    As soon as I found that out I paid off the pre order. I should be getting him tonight or tomorrow.

    Great overview @Sixo, thanks. :thumb  There's definitely not a mode I dislike or which is an obvious weak link compared to the other two - which is a rarity for me with triple changer toys.

    I looked back and I still wonder how we almost got into Backgate "Oh the back looks terrible". I mean unlike other FT's products, which sometimes comes mistransformed, this one is pretty much there. Must be Hasui taking improper pictures.

    Still my figure of the year.

    I just got mine in. But I find the artwork very uninspiring. It looks like a kid designed the artwork. For a $200 figure, the artwork should be more slick and professional. Maybe a battle scene or something?
