    Dude, just wait ‘til it comes up on PlanetSteelExpress. Price will be much more reasonable and you should have no problem getting it.

    Yeah, I know! But I still hate the whole situation just the same. There's way too many exclusives these days.

    It's the 21st Century and the fact that EVERY SINGLE TOY MANUFACTURED can't be pre-ordered before manufacture is simply apathetic laziness on the manufacturer's part.

    No, it's false demand.

    If they had free shipping I might have bitten, but for an impulse buy the price with shipping is just a bit too much.

    The gamble (for me anyway) would have been to wait and see whether A3U put both Ultio and Bedrock up, so that the order cleared the $200 free shipping threshold (never mind shipping is cheaper there anyway), but that might never happen and the PSX stock would likely be gone, so I just said what the hell and ordered both now.

    Aaaaaand ordered. I have no willpower, but don't want to miss out on this one; I know it's a solid mold, and he looks too cool.

    Ordered along with Sphinx Pharaoh (impulse purchase).

    Now I just need to figure out some other Egyptian themed figure(s) to display with him. Hmmm....

    How fast do these things usually sell out?

    Thanks for the heads up everybody. I got Senator Ratbat and Bulkhead. Sphinx pharaoh is really tempting - I probably would have grabbed him if there had just been one reformatted or the other.

    Well, there is nothing I can do until Thursday night. I'll pop back on here Thursday night to see if it's available anywhere & if not this will be the final straw & I'm done collecting.

    Ordered them both from PSX. A3U shipping cost to the Netherland are higher than from PSX. Basically everything from Asia is cheaper than the US or Canada for me.

    Not sure where you are, but just FYI, AgesThreeAndUp charges tax nowadays, so ..... you might save a bit of money by going through A3U, but not by much.
