Nice. All 3 Ollie's in my area sold out within a day.
The ironic thing is I remember when TR Trypticon first came out and was being sold at regular retail price, I posted something about me deciding to wait until it goes for super cheap at Ollie's like with TR Fort Max. At least one person replied to my post saying they doubt it would happen and that I shouldn't get my hopes up. Well, several months later here we are.
That, good sir, is some fine dino AND bargain hunting. Very nice score indeed! I'm still pretty content i got mine for $75 from Amazon last holiday. No Ollie's in my area so that's about as good as it gets for me.
Going forward when a TR or similar sized city bot/con hits the market, I'll simply wait for it to hit Ollie's for cheap.
Earlier this year I tried to help out with the 5 Below Ramhorns. I shipped out 5 of them just for cost plus shipping with tracking. But i stopped after having to deal with the complaints. People don’t seem to realize that hey, there’s tax and shipping fees with tracking isn’t cheap. Stamps aren’t .28 cents anymore either.
People are the worst.
I also sent a couple of Ramhorn's out at $9 each. That's $5 for the figure, less than a dollar for the bubble mailer, and around $3 for first class shipping (includes tracking).
I like helping others, but seeing them being taken advantage of (not at all saying you did) makes me hesitant about who I help.
I don't know why someone would rule something like that out. People have been scoring popular figures at discount retailers for years. And TR Fort Max happened just last year. A lot of collectors don't want to pay retail on principle, not just because of financial limitations, so of course waiting for Ollie's/Ross/etc. has been the default approach/viable option.

Helping out fellow collectors can be a pretty thankless endeavor.
Aaaaalllll right... let's see just how much of you is big talk.
