    Yeah they do. I'm glad I sat out the previous few exclusives.

    Now we have to wait and see if they guy can send the items to the buyers or if FP can actually do something to even prevent him from shipping the stuff.

    What are you talking about? The completed auctions are STILL there. This thread is nothing but speculation. If you wanna know what's going on just send the guy an email & ask him!

    If that's true (and as theories go, it's a good one) then I find that dispicable :mad: 

    He's selling off what's meant for PAYING Primus package holders and SERIOUSLY under cutting FP. Which isn't right

    That's true. The completed ones are still there, but they weren't appearing in the completed listings search.

    Wow. The 'bot mode is fan-freaking tastic.

    Colors on the alt mode aren't doing it for me at all, but then who gives a damn about A3's alt mode?

    Awesome.

    If this is only available at BotCon, I'm gonna be so upset (because I can't go).

    If it's a Club-exclusive, well... even with a probable high price tag, I'll still have a chance.

    I'm not sure we should worry about these cutting into FP's numbers. I'm certain that FP pays for a specific amount and the factory is responsible for getting that many to them, period. I doubt the factory is going to say, "yeah, we know you paid for 800 of these, but we're missing a couple dozen. Sorry 'bout that."

    On top of that, I'm sure there are quite a few (couple dozen?) made over top of the announced number (whatever that actually is) to cover for breakage or defects. No worries.

    I look forward to getting mine at the con sealed in bag with paperwork/accessories, and having passed some sort of quality check, hopefully.

    yeah, im looking forward to hopefully finding someone to pick them up for me, or i look forward to selling some children into slavery for him....

    and like ams said, if the factory owes FP 800, they will deliver 800....or at least a price break if they cant....so, hopefully everything works out ok....and i kinda hope this is a club exclusive...with a good $50 price point or something....

    All this gentleman is doing is offering a product to an audience who may not be able to achieve it otherwise, and at a reasonable price to boot.

    He's performing a service to the community.

    This is an awesome figure. I like the idea of Alpha-Trion in the Marvelverse.

    I guess he capped it at 19

    It's not that whether we can afford it or not, it's the fact that this is an exclusive figure for people attending the cons, and he's selling 19 of them like mass release, so why even attend botcon anymore? everyone can just order the Iacon package, even better, we'll just get it from this seller.

    Ah, so that makes stealing ok for him right... OK :thumb
