FWIW, the same thing happened for Ecto-1 for example. They took it off the site shortly after selling out. I inquired about if there would be restock and was told likely they wouldn't if it was removed from the site. Lo and behold, a couple weeks to a month later, it came back up. And interestingly enough, when he finally shipped, I was able to ascertain that those who pre-ordered in the first listing received their shipment about a month before the second listing did. The second listing shipped well after Gamestop had theirs. Point is - Lancer could be back. You could wait and see or just pull the trigger where you can find him.
