    I would hope that with these pre-orders that FT would increase the production run

    Yeah, I missed out on the first few rounds of Thomas but thankfully Baba came through and I was able to lock in a preorder with him. Oh wait, no, he cancelled my pre-order and I had to pay the $100 late tax to get Thomas at ShowZ when they got their "additional stock." (not salty with ShowZ, just Baba). So yeah, I realize it may not be Baba's fault but I'm never doing business with him again regardless.

    I stopped buying from Baba after he asked me to pay an additional $10 (due to Covid) to send me FT-42.

    Go on something as simple as eBay and type PS5. As I said, easy to get. I can buy one in seconds.

    PS5 are $1000 on ebay. you could do the same thing for FT figures. I think the point of the question is getting it at retail pricing.

    Except that’s not exactly what being asked. It’s which one is harder to get, not which is more expensive.

    Plus its apples to oranges. Comparing ps5 to toys doesnt make a lot of sense

    Sorry but i dont get the ps5 and fanstoys comparison. Yes they sell out fast and are expensive. The same could be said for houses for example. They go up for sale without warning, there might only be the one maybe two perfect(for you) options, someone else might beat you to it, qc can be horrendous even with an inspection, materials may not be the best, they cost way more than they should, people do buy them just to resell, or buy multiples at at a time. Point being that this is the system we created for most everything. Nothing is going to change it. Hell we had a global pandemic and it got worse. It didnt make ppl rethink worldly possessions or anything. Shit just got more expensive and harder to get. Its fd up but it be how it be. Plus I took the question to be asking which is harder to get at release since that is kinda the biggest complaint here. They sell out in nanoseconds. When in actuality they don't....they get reserved and will pop up later if u keep watching for them when the bills come due. Ps5 is way more mass produced than ft figures no matter the actual numbers so the question is pointless anyway

    Apparently we humans like to argue, twist and squeeze different matters from time to time. After a while, no one may even remember what matter was twisted here and then move on to the next topic. Fu*k it, life goes on.

    I don’t know quite everything (but almost :p , or at least i imagine i know) about the world, but at least one thing I’m sure of. The blood pressure monitor likes if not constantly quarreling. :banghead: 

    ...And beating the head against the wall isn’t good idea either.

    sure if you want to be over literal, it is harder to get a tesla 2.0 because it doesn't exist yet and PS5 do exist but I don't think that is the point of the question

    Stickball is the greatest game ever, I remember when the new sticks came out but you had to get extra balls because you would eventually smack them into old Bedford's yard and he would sic his nasty mutt chomper on you if you got nearby, I tell ye what.
    The old stick ball ball shortage of 1938 was a dire time for youngens who lined up for hours outside the ole town toy shoppe just to hear they sold out of balls, and then ye had to ask your richer friend who's parents made sure he had plenty o sticks and plenty o balls if you could come over for a game. A story as old as time itself.

    Hmm...If i remember correct, there should be more E and A-letters when that machine/console say that. :p 

    SEEEGAAA! Okay, not a good joke. I admit.
    But seriously, SEGA was very good too. :rock 

    MEGAMAN 2, all the way! That game changed everything. Or to be exact, all MEGAMAN games for 8-bit were just diamonds.

    I'm not trying to be snide, but the point was offered and you rejected it. I honestly don't know what other answer you're looking for.

    Megaman 2? Was that the special edition that came in a set of one stick and 2 balls in a tidy little package? I never got that but my sister managed to score one. She became cock of the walk on our block, I tell ye what.
