    They can keep pushing him back until they finally solicit X-Factor Cyclops.
    Then I'll have a warm fuzzy keeping my Brown-suit pre-order so I can try to collect the initial ToyBiz X-Men.

    I’m starting to fear that they’re gonna put out the big 3 from Endgame all in one month.

    Honestly I’m fine with that as long as they’re good quality and have no issues. They’re shaping up to be the definitive 1/12 scale versions of those three (MCU-wise)

    Looks like Homelander has been pushed back too. HLJ is expecting him in January now.

    Does anyone have Bale Batman 3.0 that they can provide feedback on? I'm vaguely interested in it.

    I'm also starting to doubt that either company is going to announce a Pattinson Batman at all...

    Get it, its the best 1/12 version of Dark Knight. Not much QC issues in my opinion, if anything just loose joints that you can tighten. It's my fav Mafex figure. Same with Joker 2.0, Harvey Dent and Bane

    I wish I could see Bandai's Pattinson figure first. If he's really getting multiple costumes I probably will want to commit to those. Not sure Bale really fits into that plan.

    I like that it's not all black though. It almost passes as a grey and black ensemble, like Pattinson's suit.

    They need to reissue Superman Hush. I think that's what a lot of people missed and subsequently skyrocketed in price. I wouldn't mind getting an extra.

    I do really like this figure but I think I prefer the blue.

    No problem! They do really jack the prices, I can't believe Venom would go for that much though. Like everyone in the world uses BBTS so maybe somebody somewhere really wanted it and was prepared to pay. I don't think I'd seen something get that much higher, like 4x MSRP.

    BBTS bump the prices when they have to go through a 3rd party to allocate some rare stock.
    My local hobby store had MAFEX Gambit for the bargain-bin price of $200 the other day.
    So glad that I got him for even the $115 price because yikes.

    I keep hoping that BBTS tell me my Retro Thing is in stock so I can finally ship my loot. I'm trying to figure out where I want to display Ben Reilly. I like this costume, but I'll always be partial to the Scarlet Spider costume more.

    BBTS will jack up the price if the following conditions are met a) the item was sold out, but stock was freed up due to people cancelling pre-orders last minute, and b) the item is hot with a high secondary market price. I think it's fair game. BBTS assumes a ton of risk from their liberal pre-order cancellation policy and the items that hurt them the most are items that aren't in demand that they can't raise the price. Some items, like some of those overproduced Mezco One:12 sets from a few years ago (before NRD's were instituted) are just going to sit and sit at retail price. They need to make up for that somehow. Either jacking up the price on hot in stock items or by raising the price on everything. It's really easy to avoid this type of late tax, so it's not like they're doing anything unfair.

    Besides, if the hot items were sold at retail price no matter what, they would be gobbled up and in the hands of people looking to flip them. You would likely never have a chance at buying them.
