    Beware, some people just might get angry because of that resell matter. ;)

    I bet it wouldn't be difficult to strip the original paint off a Grenader and just spray some silver-grey on it.

    Eh,


    Bunch of broke bastards and people coming to their senses will be cancelling these soon to release. Do not worry.

    remember,

    none of these PO’s require money up front.


    This set is not worth the price of a mfing PS5.

    I’m no fan of scalpers myself; I don’t make a living off of this though.

    First time thinking ahead though (and kicking myself for throwing away all my old FT boxes as well — time to start saving them for future reference!)

    Actually, if you think you EVER want these, you should order them now. They will only go up in both price and scarcity. There is a constant stream of new FT collectors, and there will not be copies of these guys lying around for cheap. Worst case scenario, you can sell them for a profit if you decide you don't want them later. But you'll be kicking yourself when you are looking at $700-$900 prices to get a $450 set in 18 months.

    You are definitely not wrong but I just feel like if I had the money I would spend it on other figures right now, knowing that you are 100% right. But they’re not in my top 20 and after that I stopped counting. That’s what had me thinking about it today though

    Wow! Only $439.99 (I know what you mean...relative to ebay scalper prices yadda, yadda!)! This is how out of hand things have gotten when people are celebrating that $439.99 is on the cheap side of things.

    I don't, tomorrow I'm pre-ordering a set and selling my old ones for ebay ass raping prices!

    :D

    $100 is bit much for some paint but he seems to be gray in the G1 cartoon and I guess some people are willing to pay that extra $100

    Oh trust me i'm far from celebrating. In fact these 3 bastards have me rethinking every PO I have for the rest of the year.

    And on top of it all I cancelled one of my Quietus PO's to make room.

    Does A3U ask for payment upfront? And I'm on the west coast in the US - is it true no shipping or taxes? Or will they lop that on you later?

    Yes, us humans are like that. So, nothing really new there. Everyone is just trying to figured out, how to get butter in addition to ham on top of bread.

    welp. Nevermind. I checked to estimate in checkout and it gave me additional GST and PST charges (about 50 bucks altogether). I'll just stick to my TFsource order. Thanks!

    Keep the TFS and also keep an eye out for Heattoy as they seem to be the cheapest FT retailer recently.

    Prices in China seem to be between 1700-2400 yuan (262-370 USD).

    Ooh I'll check it out. Thanks for the tip! Altho admittedly I'm still on the fence on this with the high late tax price point. Also, I don't like making new accounts with every new place I order from :p
