    Whiplash sold out?

    Whiplash sold out within the first 3 minutes!

    How the heck did that happen?? Is this yet another screw up or did they only have like less than a dozen figures for sale?

    Very annoying, it sold out before I managed to check out.

    What? They mustve not had many left over for this "re-release". Or did that many people really miss out on Whiplash?

    Oops, I made a similar thread almost simultaneously to this one.

    Something doesn't feel right - How can it sell out within the first 3 minutes? Is this another screw up?

    whaaaaaat?!?

    this figure is cursed the first issue got lost on the way to Germany; i wanted to get him last month, but he was postponed; and now he's sold out!

    or will they get a second shipment?

    PS: maybe upper management bought all the remaining figures so that they can destroy the 200X head!

    That is weird. They probably only had the reserve supply from the first go-around left to sell.

    It's awesome the WSOD has been vanquished though.

    i wonder if its possible that the re-release figures they sold was a batch from the first run that had "original" on it by mistake?

    If this is the case, they should of warned us as we would have to pay extra shipping for him.

    This is very annoying and it stinks of yet another screw us and customer disservice.

    I can't believe it when I went to buy him at 5.07 and he was already sold out!
    I am gutted, the only figure I wanted this month.
    That could not have been a full reissue shipment?
    I hope he goes back on sale at some point :-(

    When I got in he was still listed available on the bundle page but it would not add him to my cart. I went to the Whiplash page and it said he was available but still it didn't add him to my cart. I went back to the bundle page and he was sold out.

    I think these were leftovers rather than a true re-issue, but I'm betting there is a glitch someplace.

    It's not wierd..... I wanted at least one more to do another member of Whippys kind! I think most of those sold will finish in a customizing table.

    If this is the case, was there a warning? For it to be sold so quickly, they must of had at most a dozen figures left and that hardly constitutes stock for a global sale.

    I got one i was able to purchese things 2 minutes before the sale very lucky to even get a Whiplash. Sorry to hear you guys couldn't get one. But for me it wasnt on the main sale page had to go directly to his own page to get one!

    Maybe part of it that people do like the extra head option now after having it in hand, but were not buying the extra figure in the first release to display the extra head?

    Was he really a re-issue or just left over stock?

    I was thinking about that, if he were just left over stock, wouldn't he been sold in last months selection? Since they already had the stock and all.

    He may be unexpectedly delayed, perhaps he got "whiplash" on the way over and isn't ready for sale yet

    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.
