Every ounce of circumstance around its existence is complete bullshit and I say that owning an original one myself.
This was a retailer exclusive to TFSource and Robotkingdom, each of whom got like 250 units.
TFSource went live with their pre-orders at like, 1 in the morning. I don't know about Robotkingdom.
It sold out almost immediately, might have lasted until morning. Dunno.
I don't normally complain about scalpers but there were no purchase limits.
Perhaps a month after it was released, they came back on TFSource for 2-3 times their original price.
No one knows if it was reserve stock or the pieces meant to be replacements for broken figures etc. People were SUPER pissed.
I'm not passing judgement on TFSource on this. I don't know what was going on behind the scenes. I think they later dropped the price back down to original retail.
Point is, Fansproject should have known better than to do something like this in limited quantities at the height of their popularity and there were retail...inconsistencies going down.
