    I did this same exact thing this morning. Saw that they were available, placed it in my cart, held it there for an hour and accidentally hit the submit button. I was on the fence ordering this one for some reason. I hope i don't change my mind later.

    Yes, but he's come in and out of stock every few hours for the last couple of days. Keep checking back, either this thread or just check his page periodically. No reason to believe this will be in particularly short supply.

    I was on the fence about getting him. The first two times he was in stock he went out of stock while I was thinking about it. The third time I just ordered him as quickly as I could without another thought. I felt victorious until I realized that amazon had made the game about getting it rather than wanting it.

    "Well played," I thought.

    But I'm sure I'll be happy enough with him. I've never owned any version of this mold before and if I hate it I'm sure I can trade it for something I'll like. I assume he'll be reasonably popular trade fodder for a minute.

    Primarily Amazon. But other companies are buying stock to sell, (yahobby), and Costco. BBTS will probably get some, even if maybe it will cost more.

    I'm not sure where you are getting that it will be cheaper at other places? Yahobby has it for 109.99 currently and i believe its been said that costco in canada will have some of these. Not in the states.

    Little surprised yahobby i sellin for a price that low, even. As far as I understand it they're overseas. Assuming they buy from Amazon they also have to pay for shipping and all that. Then they need to make a profit.

    By the way, if anyone feels desperate enough to order from yahobby -- I caution against. Just do some research on them before purchase. Quite a few reported negative experiences (including one of my own.)

    Plus, considering how this has been restocking repeatedly, I'm sure amazon is the solid way to go for many of y'all.

    Ordered, life's too short. I'll worry about selling the Armada version when this exclusive's out of stock, and the value returns to normal.
