    Still available now as well. Not so limited I guess, or have the scalpers taken the night off in the UK?

    Wow, still available, like @Chris C137 was saying, it looks like the scalpers have taken the night off indeed!

    You know what....I think I'll be passing on this guy, he looks good but near 200 bones on some z-lister. MEH!

    PASS!

    Edit: I guess @Chris C137 was wrong.....sold out!

    Faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaans tooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooys!

    :lol

    I thought my password would work for both sites but I've been told by Genesis Toys that them and TFS Express are different companies?

    Wow, it was up for a couple of hours on Omegalock, I'm impressed.

    Wonder if the same will happen for huffer then.

    what i'm thinking they were omegalock to start with and then partnered up with someone and become tfs-express , and now split again so easier to deal with china and uk , there has always been some confusion over the 2 tfs-express sides with some people

    Who would have thought that limiting an item to one per customer would help with availability

    Just for anyone still looking: I've cancelled a preorder for Chomp at TFSource (as I was able to secure one from Omegalock in the meantime), so they'll probably be relisting it shortly - don't know when though I'm afraid. Best luck catching it to anyone who wants it!

    That is probably because the mainstream piranhas don't know about said site.

    That would be because they force you to pay for Pre-orders upfront

    More likely it's because of fatigue. Agabyss has more Quieti in stock again but their initial P.O.s sold out no problem. The same has been true with all the combiners. Granted, it does take slightly longer for them to sellout on FT P.O.s than sites that only require a deposit, but an FT P.O. sitting for two days is a rarity for them, even with a cash upfront requirement. Bugs sold out in half an hour instead of 3 minutes when I P.O.d mine, but sellout they did. I'm hopeful this means consumer fatigue is setting in and FT will be forced to adjust prices.

    Well then I guess if someone has the money, they can do it. What's your point? Just posting for people that still may be looking.
