I think it was 45x. Forgot the exact price.
452.99 when I got on it. I think that was the first lot
Back up at Bombusbee, now for $422. To the moon!
$516 for the grey chest! Now only $10 less than BBTS. Only 3 of those left. Is there always 3/1 purple chest/Grey chest ratio?
Can anyone answer why their site seems to be sold out then get more inventory, get sold out again, then reappear?
It does seem that the grey chests will have less units than the purple ones. This happened in all the Taobao preorders that I manaed to check.
They (as the other ones) are either securing more units with FT or with another source (usually another store).
If you are not cynical about it, I think it's that they need to order the exact amount upfront and don't want to overcommit.
And the minimum order quantity is 20 - 30.
But if you go full "most cynical" about it, they've got people throwing half a grand at them every time their website starts counting down from 30.
If you do prefer the cynical route, I just caved and ordered a set. Felt like this was my best chance to get a set at this “reasonable” price despite my best efforts to resist. Wrestled with the decision for days. I definitely do understand why a website counting down stock would mess with some peoples minds though
Hey no prob, I'm in on it too! I think it's interesting that it actually gives us some kind of idea how many each place is getting.
Sold out of Gray and 8 Purples left at Bombus
I think I prefer the gray ever so slightly but never enough to pay $100 more for it so very happy with saving a few bucks and getting the purple. If they were the same price I would probably go gray but that’s just a bridge too far for me. I’ve been checking their website over the last couple days and every time they have some in stock I almost do it. I think today I finally convinced myself that it was either pay this much now or pay more eventually. Even though there’s probably figures I want more than these, if I plan on having a full collection(in my eyes) id pay more for them next time they’re on my radar
They suddenly have 1 gray set available again if anyone wants it. This is just fun to watch, whatever's going on over there.

There is nine available according to their page at the time I'm writing this message
One grey and eight purple to be precise.
Oh is there an exact count on there? just said 9 available no matter what option I clicked on?
When you select the one you want from 'Options', you can see the amount they have in stock. So your first guess was right, they have 9 total available, but only 1 is grey (and the most expensive as well, damn).
Those prices are way up. Ugh.
So, all in all somehow it could seem to me, that Fanstoys is trying to meet demand. From collecting point of view, that is a good thing, but a wallet may not like it. And if i imagine the situation from the point of view of Fanstoys, why not try to meet demand, when some products are so hot. -> (Gray chest set, Stomp, Lupus, Spotter, Scoria). The prices can be/stay insane and still people will buy. It is worth forging when the iron is hot. Makes me feel bad to say all this, but it is what it is.
