How exactly did BBTS sell out of any of the TFCC figures? I thought the production amount was going to match the demand? Like, they make the figures as they need them.

Because BBTS only purchased a limited amount of subscriptions. They're not going to buy more just because there's a high demand for one of the six figures.

But I thought that TFCC said you could buy as many of a figure as you wanted with your subscription? Or did I read that wrong?

Motto: "Learn from the past or be doomed to repeat it."
Weapon: Energo-Sword
Am I the only one that thinks that charging 100$ for both Slipstream and Scourge - arguably the most popular characters of the set - while Jackpot and Circuit are sold at 40$ a piece, is a little ridiculous? Even Breakdown at 80$ is more than overcharging for a piece for this "six-pack" of toys.

A total of 300$ is being asked for these six figures. Not taking into account that Ultra Mammoth is, well, an ultra-sized toy, that makes each figure come out at roughly 50$ each. So that means:

Ultra Mammoth -> 80$ profit.
Slipstream -> 50$ profit.
Scourge -> 50$ profit.
Breakdown -> 30$ profit.
Circuit -> 10$ deficit.
Jackpot -> 10$ deficit.

Basically, that's around 190$ profit! :BANG_HEAD:

I know, it's a store. They're out there to make money, nor to help out customers/collectors to get our collective hands on whatever toy and so forth without making a couple bucks off of it. Still, 190$... (and yes, I know, dead horse beating time. ;) )

I think they are rediculous for the price they charge. I'm a tfcc member I'll pay club prices and I only want 3 figures slipstream,scourge and breakdown

Even Breakdown at 80$ is more than overcharging for a piece for this "six-pack" of toys.

A total of 300$ is being asked for these six figures. Not taking into account that Ultra Mammoth is, well, an ultra-sized toy, that makes each figure come out at roughly 50$ each. So that means:

Ultra Mammoth -> 80$ profit.
Slipstream -> 50$ profit.
Scourge -> 50$ profit.
Breakdown -> 30$ profit.
Circuit -> 10$ deficit.
Jackpot -> 10$ deficit.

Basically, that's around 190$ profit! :BANG_HEAD:

I know, it's a store. They're out there to make money, nor to help out customers/collectors to get our collective hands on whatever toy and so forth without making a couple bucks off of it. Still, 190$... (and yes, I know, dead horse beating time. ;) )


Look at it this way.

They expect to sell Slipstream, Scourge, and Breakdown.

Circuit and Jackpot Probably won't sell many and they'll have them on clearance in the future.

Mammoth, who knows, they have about 75 of him still in stock at the moment.
He's probably the difference between profit and loss on the set.

So, each group they buy costs them $300 + shipping, and they are pretty much guaranteed only $280 back from each set. The rest of the figs will be shelf warming for months, maybe years for them.

From my rough guestimates they are probably just about breaking even now, depending on how much TFCC charges them for shipping on such a large order. :-B
