    Nice. I'm glad they're not allowing people that have already bought one or more to try and purchase this run.

    %25 fee for canceled orders? Waiting for the inevitable crying to start....

    Here's a hint. Don't put in an order when you know you are breaking the "rules".

    I'm going to [​IMG] at anyone who ends up paying this fee and ends up complaining about it here.

    Argh! Too much awesome stuff this month! Glad I'm getting a second shot at ordering this guy. Hopefully I can pick him up. (doubtful.)

    The completionist in me says pick one up since I missed it the first time. Hopefully I can get my hands on a custom head...

    I was thinking of buying one to scalp this time around since I got one from another member last time...


    Kidding, I'm not a complete douchebag. Good luck to those who missed out!

    The restriction makes this feel like it was put together by mirror-universe-Mattel. :lol

    C'mon give Mattel credit, they lowered the limit from 10 to 6 for the SDCC sets. :p  Decreased scalping by 40%!




    No? That's not how that works? Huh.....

    I see these figures as a either:
    1) A new run of figures and hopefully any QC issues were fixed OR
    2) They went through their QC rejects and found the best 300 to sell.

    I'm REALLY hoping for option #1...

    3) They ordered production of 300 more with the same toolings as the first release.

    Which Punch/Counterpunch is this? Is this a reissue of the G1 mold? I'm very much interested in G1 mold. Sorry, I don't know of any other P/C.

    Sigh... tough decision... $99 for a deluxe figure?

    And TFCC members, help me out with the details... If I wanted to get this reissue, I would need to sign up for a membership nowish ($40) and hope to be on time to get my preorder in whenever it opens this week? Seems... tricky.

    This is a nice idea but they should have probably put a limit on the original run as well (i see nothing wrong with people having 2 or 3 to display in different modes. Was referring to the people with 10+ orders lol).
