    Definitely getting a little agitated that this hasn't happened today.

    We can't really know how much stock they have anymore until an item drops below 40. Too bad because I'd like to check this theory out. I believe everything, including Waruders, are trickling out at the same pace the Botcon sets did. They just had such high numbers, it's taking longer to sell through. That's why they haven't dropped yet because the longer they wait, the more money they make. I personally believe they won't drop until either the last week of the year ( after Christmas ), or when all the toys sell out. Whichever comes first.

    I suspect you are exactly correct. They're looking at the rates at which things are selling and have decided that at 80% off things are moving fast enough for their liking. And really based on what we've seen once stock Falls below 40 there's a slow but steady Trickle and there's no real reason to think that's not going on even with Waruders.

    I got the Waruders at the time they were released. One set is enough, despite their comic appearance/character I see them as individuals. Plus the loose bot heels puts me off them.

    I doubt they are selling any Ramjets or Waruders. Everyone feels like they are in ample supply, generating no pressing need to secure one. The Botcon sets were different due to the smaller supply. I can't fault them for holding at 80% though, even if it is a dick move at this point. Selling 50 units of an item at 80% off yields the same amount of money for them as selling 100 units at 90% off. They will likely ride the 80% until 12/20 or so.

    Agreed. I'm not worried about getting the Waruders & comics - they will still be there at 90% off. I can wait. If for some unlikely reason they are gone, no biggie. They had like 500+ a few weeks ago.

    Me too. That Nightbeat/Energon Hot Shot mold is so rough... I really don't want to pay more than $30 for it.

    I could go for some waruders and ramjet as extra minions for nova prime to have. And depth charge is just a stellar mold. How do we know how many they have left?

    I think the cc talk is pertinent if any of us are planning on buying anything else from them and they aren’t secure anymore

    If the CC info had been compromised, they wouldn’t need to ask for pictures. I think it’s better to let this get handled privately unless there’s evidence of a breach.

    Agreed. I've seen a ton of payments going out to funpub recently but I have to confess that I am responsible for all of them ;) 

    So, another week of 80% I have to agree with the people saying they'll keep 80% as long as they can. And like some of those I'm starting to re evaluate purchases I would have made had this reduction gone ahead but hey, I've already gotten most of what I wanted and the rest went at too high a chance. I did want to get a wing of Ramjets in but maybe not.

    Yeah, I got the one thing I needed a couple weeks ago. They lost the rest of my money from holding out on the discount, but it's not like they care who they get the money from, especially when it's someone else's more-money versus my less-money. I mean, what am I going to do? Boycott a closed down service?

    Just gonna say after having stopped watching this thread for a while that I actually had my Credit Card compromised by the club a week ago, new one came in yesterday. Also they are really being stingy not updating the discount there's like 2 weeks left in the year
