It is a violation of the rules, and we do have the figures on order. We will be carrying them.

Ok, then to be safe and make sure I get one can I reserve one at the aforementioned price?

We just got off the phone with the US distributor; they are not in stock yet.

It is possible some companies imported them from the UK. If you feel so inclined to purchase from them, you may. UK pricing does not necessarily reflect US pricing.

Thanks all,

Just for the record, I was really just asking a ballpark price so I can start saving some money for when 10 and 4 come out.

I certainly don't wish to deflect any business from WhoNA! They've always been excellent!

Of course, the other possibility is that some US stores got their stock following a convention (like New York Toy Fair).

Frequently, UK companies will arrive at a convention, sell their product to pay for their booth, then unload any leftovers to other companies to retail through their stores or online. That is probably what happened here, as we were directed to one source for stock in the USA, and they have assured us it has not arrived in their hands.

There is, of course, nothing wrong with this practice, but it does end up with quite a few companies left out until stock arrives through the primary distributor.

Yeah, it seems unfair to other retailers. Do you how many you ordered by chance?

Any word yet on when you're expecting these or where you'll be pricing them?

Any idea on price yet? When will they go up for sale? I don't want to miss out and sure they will sell quickly.

I sure wish that in the future WhoNA would do a preorder page for these higher-end items. I would also be interested to know if they were notified about how many pieces they have been allocated and what they are pricing them at.

They went through Diamond for US distribution. That just about sums up all you could ever want to know.

I agree as well. What's with the cute game about the price? Just tell people. It's probably one of the most expensive items they've carried, they need to reveal a price.

It has always been our policy when dealing with certain suppliers not to take pre-orders for their items because we never know if we will get the exact number of what we ordered and also because we have to confirm our actual shipping price when the items come in. The suggested retail for this item is $199.99 - we will not charge above this price. Any lower? Won't know till the item comes in and we have calculated our cost.

On numerous occasions, Diamond has shipped a single comic in a box and charged us $10.00 shipping on an item that retails for under $4.

I'm sorry we cannot set prices, but based on Diamond's track record, we don't know any of our true costs until we see how they ship to us.

I understand now. It is a shame that BC couldn't have chosen you guys or someone more reliable than Diamond as the official distributor.

If you frequent a comic store in your area, you should ask them what they think of Diamond, then share the horror stories on here Wink
