    There's no new movie or anything for Spider-Man coming anytime soon, so there's no rush. But HT probably wanted to get out both Mando's before putting a Season 2 one up for preorder.

    I'm surprised there this big of a price difference, but it's $222 at Toys Buying Agent. Almost $30 shipped below US retail.

    I'm sure that someone will get one and replace the head from one of the episodes.

    It's a given since it actually happened :D

    Since Sideshow is the US distributor nothing is really sold out until they are.

    @NSJ23 - @Hellbot is right.. Nothing is "Sold Out" unless Sideshow lists it in the States. If you get these from suppliers overseas (Hong Kong, Singapore, etc. ), they still will possibly have stock in the back shelves.

    Got it, mine is from toy dojo they for sure sold out that same day back in March. I assumed he meant besides sideshow because i know they still have it for pre-order.

    EDIT: re-read the post. sorry, i thought he meant which stores had pre-orders available not which of us pre-ordered...

    My point is that places like Toy Dojo and BBTS get their supply from Sideshow. I don't know what their agreement is with them, but it's possible those smaller sites can get more stock.

    Most likely the retailers just order enough to meet the minimum limit and to make sure they don't get stuck with unsold stock. Sideshow pretty much used to sell out quick after release but now I think they ordered too much from Hot Toys and are stuck with a lot from the Infinity War lineup.

    I can't imagine how Sideshow cannot offer their Hot toys at the same price as the other retailers and offer free shipping. Their UPS rates are way up there. I don't care much for their rewards either as I'm done placing my preorders even before the rewards convert to an amount significant enough to be a good discount. If they allow the rewards to be used to pay off the balance, sure that'll be better but as far as I know, they don't.

    i agree, i don't shop there often but rewards are the only reason i still do, and the holiday events. with those points i was able to get my death trooper for $46, but $17 of that was shipping and i'm less than 20 minutes from them so it should not cost that much to ship to me.

    I’ve had my order in ever since someone here twisted my arm about getting it. :rolleyes: 
    I prefer not to collect 1/6 but exceptions are made.

    The smaller sites don't typically get any more stock after their original order. BBTS is one of the few to typically even have a lot in stock after the initial release.

    For the Beskar Mando, Sideshow is the only US site I know of that still has it in stock for preorder. It's been sold out at other sites for quite a while.
