    Yep, that's pretty much how I feel about it. Everyone had their chance when they were made to order. Ah well. Satisfied with the two ordered.

    I don't even collect Star Wars but I'd seriously consider getting a Razor Crest.

    My point is less to go with the "everyone had their chance" angle (although it's certainly the truth), but to say that, for those who missed that chance for whatever reason, the fact that many folks bought more than one means that those late-comers will still have more chances to get one (and potentially even for a better price than would have otherwise been the case... if still probably more than the original price) than would have been the case if strict one-per-person limits were enforced.

    Feeling pretty good about my new profile picture. What is everyone else's thoughts on it?

    The neck seems long.

    Certainly true too.

    Holy run-on sentences Batman. Your opinion has been noted, but you might want to try to make your statement a bit more coherent for the masses chief. Yikes.

    Think its almost guaranteed those aren't based on how many orders are made. They definitely already have a set amount made.

    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.

    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.
