Because they know the demand will be high. Why not cash in?

Remolded pieces instead of just a straight repaint.

I'll wait for BBTS, they're prices are usually 20 bucks cheaper than the non-member prices.

I realize that Punch/Counterpunch required 'a little' extra engineering compared to Airazor... But 17 dollars more?! WTF!?! :-x

Also I haven't even seen the work done on it. So will I be preordering it? I don't think so. Especially when they keep making these 'exclusive membership toys' without them ever running out of stock. They're almost worth less than the toys I bought at Walmart!

I'm on the fence on this. I'd like to see more photos of Punch/Counterpunch before preordering it.

Hold on to your seats...

In the first hour of Pre-orders we have already sold through 20% of our stock of Punch/Counterpunch.

Do NOT delay!

Why on earth would you worry about saving 20 measly bucks with BBTS when for the same $20 you could just join the club and get the free figure and 6 magazines?

Sure the club is overpriced if you live outside the US, but if you divide the $40 cost between the figure and magazines it only comes to about $5.70 for each thing, even less if you count the content on their website.

Yeah, Counterpunch is a bit much, but Cyclonus isn't that bad. As far as selling less than Walmart figures, that's true in some cases, but there's little way of telling which figures will be rare or hot. And keep in mind there's thousands of Walmart figures that sell for less than they did in the store.

There's very few people out there who actually can make a living or substantial profit off reselling action figures. Collect them for fun or forget about it.

I preordered both of the exclusives (I'll just take the single free Dion).

No offense to everyone, but I find it amusing how much people complain. The complained that if the club did P/CP, he better have a new head. Well, it costs money to do those remolds. These are limited run figures, which cost more money (economy of scales anyone?) to produce, come in extremely high quality packaging, and are actually pretty interesting figures overall. It's worth it. If you don't want to pay now, cry later when you decide you want it and it's three or four times the club cost.

Sorry for the rant, but it gets on my nerves!

Not a rant, man, it's just the truth. I'd love to preorder both right now but I'm short on cash.

Yea, I wish I had jumped on the Seacons (was broke at the time), and I would venture to guess that even at this "high" price, P/CP will sell out in a much shorter time than the Seacons. It is a fantastic mold with a new head. It may be a bit pricey, but well worth it based on the concept art that we have seen. If you think it is expensive now, don't complain when it is sold out and the prices on the secondary market are insane.

The only thing I'm pissed about, is the fact that I want to pre-order all 3, but Don't want to pay 2 separate shipping charges.

I don't care if I have to wait 2 extra months for an extra dion. I DO CARE about paying $11 shipping on a freaking $20 toy...!!!!...>!!!!!!1111!!

all 3 + 1 shipping charge = ship in june... why can I have this?!

This is making me hold off on ordering for now.

Also, I dont like the fact they they charge IMMEDIATELY for pre-ordered items.

quite honestly I don't think that's legal. Amazon, BBTS, Newegg ... all WAIT until the stuff gets in before charging you.

I just joined the club before the deadline, and I only needed 1 Dion. But if the pre-orders sell out, and I don't preorder cyclonus and P/CP, does that mean that's it? Or will they produce a few afterwards? Cause I don't know if a "pre-order" means a figure or if it just will give you the first ones. And if 20% allready sold out...... #-o :???:

You must not consider your time very valuable then. I've repainted that mold into Wheeljack using the Master Collectables kit and it's quite a task. Given the chance to pay the club price for the character pre-molded in the correct colors with a new head is a bargain in my book.
