    It seems to me that what initiated the "buy-off" of the CMW sets was the sudden decrease in inventory. It went from like 30-40 units to 15 over the course of a work day.

    If the buyer of those units hadn't moved on them yesterday, I think its reasonable to say that the Most Wanted sets could have lasted till this Friday, at least.

    ...yes, if no one bought the Most Wanted sets then the inventory would last longer.

    Alright, what's left? Between Straxus, Ironfist, Eject, and Ramjet, not only am I satisfied, but I can also say I got figures from all 3 branches of the TFCC from this sale.

    Hahaha I should have phrased that better. What I was trying to say is that the sudden drop in quantity set off everybody else.

    Does that make sense?

    Yeah, I've argued the same thing happened to the pretender set. They bulk sold off 50 to someone offsite before that day's discount hit. Anyone wavering on waiting an extra week almost certainly settled for that week's discount.

    I've got over $1200 sitting in my cart! Any time they want to get paid, all that is needed is to go to 90%.

    I'm just patiently waiting for 90% too. No way they run out of Waruders and the comics that I want.

    40. I hope to work with someone to make a set of heads that repurpose them.

    Nice, looking forward to seeing what you come up with. If I could make a suggestion for the red teal and black one, either inferno or jetstorm/tonbot

    so, you'll buy 40 sets... make new heads and then sell them all to people down the road?

    I’d definitely bite for a few different heads, especially if they were already painted

    I haven't even said a price and the pitchforks are already out :rolleyes: . I would like to profit from my effort on the heads. The toys are merely a vehicle for selling the heads and are not planned to be very profitable. These things were waaaaay overproduced. No one can ever expect to profit much from the Waruders.

    I may pass on buying any of them if there is an obvious demand for the heads by themselves. I only want the figures to help sell the heads.

    I for one would be more likely to buy heads without the figures since I already picked up a set of waruders

    not... not really... he's buying a product nobody wants, and making it his own... I was just asking for clarification, not getting out pitchforks...

    cool man, hopefully that works well for you. There's definitely demand for new heads, just look at the work Venksta has done over the years.

    Noted. If others feel the same, I will feel better about being able to sell some heads by themselves. I know they are merely talk at this point, but I have made heads and headmasters in the past that were well-received. They will be good if they happen.
