  1. Whoops, sorry about the misunderstanding.

    Waugh! I'm hoping Big Bad Toy Store ships my case soon.
  3. Well to be fair, the toy manager I was working with ordered two cases of Wave 10 after I gave her the product numbers from a previous receipt. Two weeks later, I had a case of Wave 10.

    Wave 11

    I may have extras if the kid on another site I'm on who offered to take my dupes off my hands proves to be as flaky with these as he's been with Wave 10. :\
  5. Only way I could abide more figures per wave is if the BAF's were substantially larger because of it.
  6. Right, which is why mods should be monitoring the board for trouble makers and reporting them to the admin for banning. I've been around for years, I used to run a gaming forum, I've been a member of a gaming forum for years which has persistent nuisance posters. Sooner or later the jerks reveal themselves and they get banned again for another few years. Is it perfect? Perhaps not; but every summer you need to weed and mow your lawn to keep it clean. No different with a forum.
  7. Ouch. Well I have seen some of the higher ups here admit they don't ban his accounts because he could re-register, which I counter with that's what moderators are supposed to do. Suss out trouble makers and ban them. Keep banning them. Until the message is received. Allowing wolves to roam the chicken roost does not foster a positive community for folks that may be looking to buy / trade with others.
  8. Makes me wonder if an employee is stashing four cases in the back for a scalper? :\

    No. Please no! I'm already spending too much on these, and don't need the extra useless plastic. @hmmm@
  10. As someone only interested in the contents of the package, I endorse this.

    Well there's always My Little Pony. . . @smilepunch@
  12. Could you please set up a webcam? I want to see it when your head finally explodes. @loll@

    In the case of toys think of Diamond Comics as Wal-Mart / Target. Diamond doesn't get any special treatment and don't offer comic shops better pricing. Which is why a lot of shops in my area no longer stock toys, they come in after retailers get them and after Diamond pricing they can't compete with the retail store price point. I'd rather pay $12.99 than $16.99-18.99 per figure.
  14. Metron with Collect and Connect Chair! Ambush Bug <= Don't you tell me he doesn't need to be made. We'll have words. Granny Goodness would be awesome.
  15. All I ever see around here are Grape Wildcats. :\
  16. I got a kick out of that myself the first time I saw it. Then again, nobody on the Internet gives a damn about proper spelling or grammar. @grumpy@
  17. Just keep your nose to the grindstone and hopefully you'll hit paydirt. Keep you fingers crossed that eBay becomes so saturated with product that figure prices drop substantially. Then buy from eBay. Here's a good example of what happens to a scalper when product becomes abundant.
  18. Because you are. Your adolescent brain is still developing and will continue to well into your 20's.
  19. Yeah, I've seen things. I've seen some pretty terrible things done with toys courtesy of the Internet and Japan. . .@hmmm@ While I don't mind a "sexy" looking figure, it's not required. Especially for this line, where I'm buying it because it's some of the best renditions of childhood favorites. Although if you look at it from the other end, the dude figures are pretty ripped, tightly clothed, or otherwise ripped. If you haven't seen it, the documentary Bigger, Stronger, Faster has a nice little segment on male body image and the evolution of boys toys.
  20. While Mattel likes to claim this is a "collector" line; it's evident they shy away from "sexualized" depictions of the female form for fear of catching hell at retail. Just build up her badonkadonk with some Apoxie or something.
  21. Same here. I've only seen two Wave 8 figures in the wild, and I'm kicking myself in the ass for not buying Gentleman Ghost then. The only other was a Vigilante and I saw him at Meijers in Columbus, OH. Unfortunately I'm not willing to drive from Cleveland to Columbus every day to toy hunt. I went the BBTS route as well. Let's hope they don't fudge up the distribution down the road.
  22. Unfortunately there's a demonstrated lack of people not actually reading this thread; so news needs to be regurgitated every few pages. We can't fault Vash for catering to those folks.
  23. Could you please link to where you've read about Wave 8/9 shipping? I'd love to know that at some point I'll be able to finish Giganta without spending $50 on Gentleman Ghost. Plus I think it would put a lot of people at ease WRT Mattel and their production errors lately. Thanks!
