Come on BBTS, pull another rabbit out of the hat. Get a Punch / Counterpunch pre-order going, please. I don't have any of the credit cards that the Club accepts, so was truely gutted when I tried to order one.

Sold out before BBTS could order some for resale.

I think the club put them up for preorder on friday to prevent that from happening again. Smart actually

+1, hope it will be cheaper since it is a deluxe.

If BBTS put up a pre-order for P/CP the collective scream coming from the fandom would be deafening. Don't get me wrong all the wailing, breast beating, and hair pulling would be hysterical but the thread posts would become redundant.

Here's what I think happened. Keep in mind this is my own oppinion based on what I've seen.

Last time club exclusives were available (Seacons and Nightbeat), BBTS picked them up very quickly, undercuting the club store's non-member price by about 20 dollars for Nightbeat, and IIRC about 50 bucks for the Seacons.

Seacons sold like hotcakes and I believe that BBTS' stock of them sold out faster than the club's. Of course BBTS had a smaller stock, but I think you see my point. BBTS took money away from the Club. If they had 100 sets of Seacons, then that's 5,000 dollars that the club, theoretically didn't get. Of course this is hypothetical; there would've been a mix of members/non-members purchasing them, so we'll average it out to 2,500 dollars per 100 units.

Fast forward to 2 weeks back, when Counterpunch was being touted as a sure-fire sell out. The Club could have realised 2 factors. 1) Most fans are online during the weekend and 2) BBTS and other resellers don't typically operate on weekends. This lead to (IMO) the club getting far more money from non-members paying them. Since P/CP sold out my 11am monday morning, BBTS didn't get the chance to secure any stock.

HA! Unlike SG Cyclonus, P/CP has a remold, thus he'll be more expensive. Expect no less than 85 USD per figure IF BBTS get him.

1 thing I have learned about BBTS is while they usually have a great selection you won't get many rare figures for cheaps. I do from time to time find amazing deals in the vintage dept ( like my God magnus for $24 bucks!) but P/CP is going to fetch a good $ amount..

Mkall just got all spock on us... I kinda wish I had gotten 2 now..
