    Thanks for the review, but according to the following: Exclusives, it's supposed to be one of the exclusives. I guess it's an exclusive if it sells out at PSX, otherwise it's not.

    Oh that's cool. Maybe a second production run will happen next year then? I've certainly seen a lot of people lament their inability to pick him up.

    That’s a relief if @Paik4Life is right in his video and this will be available elsewhere. I have no particular interest in Ratbat as a character, nor in the other versions of this mold, but this figure is really grabbing me for some reason.

    I think I may have an idea how to use this in my collection.

    And of course now it's a) sold out at PSX and b) the price was raised. Would be nice if it would see a more general release.

    But it was down as a convention exclusive on their website... so I bought from there when I could.

    Had I had know it was a general release I would have bought from alternative cheaper...

    I may be wrong, but I think he is the same price or slightly more at other vendors. He came to around $115 shipped from PSX, and he's currently $130 at Show.Z. Who has it listed under $115?

    That's not what he said. He said that if this had been a general release then presumably someone like ToyDojo would have it for 100 and then you can do free shipping after 150.

    I think there's a difference between 'not totally an exclusive' and a general release.

    But it's not $100 so the saved shipping cost is negligible.

    We are talking about hypotheticals here. In the past whenever an item from PSX appears on the sites of Western retailers, the item would be priced similar to how it is in PSX BEFORE shipping. I mean, take a regular item from PSX (like Ocular Max Fraudo), and compare its price to any retailer in the US. You'll get the same price.

    The question here is whether this is an Exclusive or not. If it is, then 115 shipped is probably the cheapest you can get it for. ShowZ charges 130, but perhaps he bought it from some other source or direct from PSX at an elevated price.

    So wait till the general release or get it now with the mark up? Is it even confirmed that it will be re-released?

    ...whenever PSX re-releases exclusives they alter the color schemes (and sometimes the sculpt) a bit, to keep things interesting and the original exclusives limited...

    Are you sure it's not pounds?

    Edit: Took a look at Kapow Toys. It's 76.xx in Pounds which translates to $100 USD, but free shipping is only if you've crossed 100 pounds?

    Let me thing about it...no :p 

    I like IDW, but not that much. Read all of MTMTE and LL this past summer and currently wrestling my way through RiD and beyond (especially the beyond part is a chore). I'd rather get those IDW based designs and incorporate them in my collection.


    Free shipping with Kapow only applies when you have it shipped within the UK. International shipping always has shipping costs, doesn't matter what you buy or how much, you'll have to pay shipping.

    And sadly they also don't have a stacking system so the only way to combine shipping is to buy everything you want at once.

    Hey guys, is there something up with PSX's shipment tracking? I click the link and it just opens a copy of the current window.

    It’s been doing that on iOS for several days. You can use https://www.sf-express.com/cn/en/dynamic_function/waybill/#search/bill-number/SF############# (I can’t remove that link) to track.

    (I don’t see any movement since the 6th on mine.)
