    Wow, I barely got my pre-order in with TCP. I had to refresh because my state wouldn't display either, and then got a blank page after the final click... only to discover I had an email from TCP confirming my order went through!

    That was fun, got my order in, but thought I'd lost it when the item disappeared from my cart. Luckily, it disappeared because my order went through! Good luck, folks!

    If they met demand they wouldn't be able to charge the markup they do. The scarcity causes the price increase, which ultimately, drives up much of the demand, which further drives up the price, which causes the resale value to jump as well, etc, etc.

    125 now at TCP. They probably could have asked 150 and still sold out within an hour. This is nuts

    Same. After several failed refreshes with the state not displaying and the "calculating shipping" spinning screens, I finally secured an order on TCP.

    Only 13 minutes of frustration this time instead of 18 with Chomp. Site's improving or this figure was less in demand! The state thing happened to me too. Incredibly annoying. If this was Dead End or Jazz and I didn't already have a PO lined up with TFS, I'd have been losing my mind.

    My god that was horrible. 20 minutes later I GUESS it went through. I mean I got nothing but error messages, but I did finally get an email saying it's confirmed. Ugh.

    I got mine on TFSource for $119.99 - it's since been raised to $139.99 - yikes.

    Yea there probably is more available than Chomp - just the rush of hits killing the server in the first 20 minutes. Now the site works perfectly fine and it's still available.

    I hate that this is how it is for FT stuff

    Just got my order in with TCP, checkout was a little muddy but was totally smooth after a single refresh.

    Cancelling my TFSource PO and my preliminary ShowZ deposit in a little bit, so best of luck to whoever gets them from there!

    I really wish I would have preordered all those figures ahead of time at ShowZ when I had the chance. I was new tho and couldn't have predicted this sort of frenzy over these figures.

    nothing, it hasn't been put up on PO yet. What I meant is I already had the Rig PO yesterday on TFS, but if this was Jazz, and if I didn't have a PO anywhere else, I'd be going crazy.

    BC's Huff v2.0 is good enough.....but I said the same thing about XTB's Seaspray and ended up grabbing FT's. At this rate, 75% of my collection consists of FT figures, and there's really nothing wrong with that!

    Yeah you've definitely got it figured out. The oval details goes to the back of the arms in bot mode as you can see on the grey proto. In alt mode pics you can see the top of the stacks is pinned to the back of the cab, so they will hide away somewhere in there. You can see glimpses of the hidden hands in various pics. Also the dome on the top of the arms folds inwards into the truck in alt mode (equivalent of forwards in bot mode) which again you can see in a couple of pics.

    I agree - Hoping this insanity doesn't start to bleed into other third party company releases.
