    They got 1000 of them to box up and mail out, logistically you can expect it to take weeks and you cant blame them.

    Dont be sorry, just a question.

    There deleted my posts and questions. Can't believe a simple yes or no question turned into a one page diatribe about why I'm wrong for asking and I'm somehow blaming someone for something.

    It used to be fun to come here and find out and talk about our shipping notifications on our new toys. You all take it too seriously now.

    Unlikely I think. Was that the Heattoy/Bombusbee order? Sorry - can't quite remember what happened to you :(

    Yeah, that's the one. Just vanished without a trace. Luckily I got my money back and Terry still had some in stock. Hopefully this time it'll actually arrive.

    you got me thinking and I did the same. V1 has that stupid logo spot on the shoulder I hate with a passion so I got a new one just to not have that annoyance. It's cheap! Give it to me!

    ShowZ bought 1000. So this is a new run for just them ... probably.

    I do hope the QC works out.

    Well damn, might have to dash and grab one if they're in stock. Annoying since all I really want is a damn gun..

    Curious. Would an mp-10 rifle work? Does it use identical tab placement or something different? Know unclebilly has the KFC MP-10 articulated hands & replacement rifle sets for $18 or so

    Hmm, that's a good question. I will look into that as a possibility. Thanks. I'm just missing the handle from my gun that came with mine, and it took tf-direct 6 months to drag their heels and then tell me I'm screwed for a replacement. So my end game was to just pick up another figure.. Tried hunting down a spare rifle without any luck, but at least the new reissues are on for a really great price

    You could probably flip it for what you paid for it at least in a couple of months sans gun.

    Well this’ll be V4 now, probably about the same as V3, maybe some small differences but no insignia indent.

    Technically this may be v5.

    V3 had the cloudy windows and a grey gun
    V4 had the cloudy windows and a black gun

    I'm guess it's just a reissue of V4. But no one knows for sure until we have it in hand. So it's all guessing right now.

    Had a purchase of very hard-to-find figure fall through, between that and the great price at Show Store Z, grabbed this guy as a cope purchase.

    Strongly considering SG version too
