I doubt that, considering that there is a preorder window for Takara generations selects that ends months before release. The cutoff of orders gives them time to figure out how many they need to produce based on orders, it's kind of the whole point behind a preorder window
It's the angle that makes it look so long.
They say girth is more important than length.
so...people just rambling as usual...
Hopefully someday there's a live action remake of Turbo...
How dare you bring logic to the table. I don't want to see any of this in 12-15 months when people are selling them above what they paid for them.
People are buying multiples of these is to flip them for a profit because it is a limited time offer. These sort of limited time things are great for scalping.
...i fall into the camp which believe that scalping requires artificial scarcity; intermediation to markets without direct access is more distribution than scalping, and serves natural demand...
...you can't really scalp a made-to-order product...
I kinda take issue with this because Hasbro blindsided everyone with it and gave them two months to get the money and space together. If they weren't willing or able to buy it f0r its original price they're not going to for the double it's going on eBay for.
It really depends on supply and demand. Look at metroplex now. People are willing to pay 500 bucks for him on the secondary market. And he was the cheapest titan class figure. Only time will tell how unicron is going to fare on the 2nd market.
Toy value speculating pretty much never works for a bunch of reasons, but It's probably fair to say it won't decrease in value. But there's a good chance that it doesn't increase either if all the ones being sold for jacked-up prices don't sell.
...after years of anguished contemplation, i finally paid $500 for SDCC metroplex at auction and then takara announced their legends reissue a month later...
...now i have two!..
Except being made-to-order, they're not so limited. People buying multiples to flip wouldn't really be scalping, as they actually increased the supply of Unicron that will be out there. Just like any product sold at a store, the more stores selling it, the lower the prices are bound to be.
Take a look at the sail barge from haslab. It had the same offering as unicron also. That thing is going for 1k or more on ebay. As long as the market isnt flooded with supplies and the demand is still high than it will sell at a higher price than 575.
This has probably been addressed many times in the thread, but are we 100% certain Hasbro isn't going to open up orders for Unicron again? When funding was open, it was not clear to me that there wouldn't be an opportunity to buy the figure after the fact. I'm not up on the whole 'go fund me' thing so maybe it's something that is expected to be understood but I missed the fact entirely. I thought backers usually get some kind of bonus throw-in item but everyone eventually gets the opportunity to purchase.
Yeaah this question was asked in a few interviews with Hasbro and they let it be know, that it’s a one time thing
That's super disappointing. I think they are forfeiting some serious cash.
U might try some etailers. They might still be selling marked up unicrons
Anywhere selling them marked down?
