    With the global market that exists in today's world, a few seconds on sale is not a good thing...

    Actually, it's a great thing in ways. The demand is there and Joe has not been shy about saying these are in EXTREMELY limited quantities. If he put them up for sale and they were still there an hour later, a day later, it would show there was little market/interest in them.

    Maybe Joe can offer them unpainted?
    If enough people fill out that form on the websites, I'm sure we'll see a second go.

    These things are selling out so fast I think it's just frustrating many who are interested in purchasing them. I understand that Joe is just one man doing this in his spare time so he can't crank them out in large numbers. He's losing many potential sales as a result, but he may not have a desire to make his custom projects more widely available due to other priorities for his time.

    Haha and I thought, that I'm the only one, that was frustated!
    Sorry Joe, but how many sets do you have? 5??? It's a one man show, but why advertise for 5 or even 10 of them? Through that you will not get many happy customers. Only more people who don't want to buy anything more.
    But the best thing is to add $5 for the international fans, because you have to fill out a custom sheet! I will keep that in mind, when I should sell something to someone in the USA.

    For me I deleted all infos from projects in the future from Joe. I will not buy anything from him, even if I could. You will make a second run? You could keep all you have!

    I realy don't know anybody how could buy this! I had this thing in my shoppingcart and when I would pay, paypal tolds me it sold out?!

    $5 more for international fans is more than fair. It's a very good deal. It costs more to ship internationally.

    Anyway, I'm glad he plans on doing another run, with preorders. It's a nice set, and well priced for a custom piece imo.

    Yes it's ok to add $5 more, because shipping is more, but he shouldn't write that he has to fill out a custom form.This is stupid!

    It had to be 10 seconds or less though. I was on the phone with Vault at the time and he was clicking through the same screens and he missed out. Sounds like I should've bought a lottery ticket yesterday...

    So a pre-order for March 2013 release? Hmmm, still undecided. What about the Manta Raider and Hammer re-release, when do they go on sale?

    Congrats for you man. Right now I think win the lottery is easier than get one of Joe's sets. lol

    Anyone know when these are shipping? Is it unrealistic to hope for mine to arrive before Christmas? Never bought anything from him before and just wondering what to expect since there is zero information available - at least that I can find.

    Same here. I am so glad I was able to get one this time! I am so happy that Joe did this after the :30 second sell out.

    Just got one on pre-order. This was a much better time of day to do the sales IMO, I hope Joe does a Manta Raider rerun pre-order at a similar time of day to this

    Preorders are still open! I hope Joe can handle the workload. I'm scared of preorders getting cancelled.
    Awesome sticker included!

    Thank you Joe for this rerun and pre order system! I think it's safe to say that you made a lot of people happy with this, the wait will be totally worth it! Looking forward the hammer rerun now.
