    That too! I agree....No neck, constipated look, and a bottle cap smashed on his head......poor Rammy! I love the figure but I question that second head...lol

    You're too optimistic. Yes they made more vs Fang Man, but overal not that much.

    And I started the line with 2 subs. Now I only have 1. You may have people adding some, but you'll also have people dropping and I think the numbers added and dropped would be very close together. The only wildcard is the resellers. It may be worth it for them, but with most of the core characters completed, it may not.

    Maybe...I just don't think the fast sell out was from a purposeful short stock if you will. Scott had said they made plenty of Ram Man's. I think they underestimated the amount of Resellers and Scalpors that would jump on him though and order 10 each. I'm sure there were places that did just that and ordered a lot of them to off set the cost of some of the other figures they have coming in subs that may not sell as well. If they know they can triple or more their money with one figure, taking a slight loss on a certain 3 pack per se may not sting so much. I think that's more likely what happend with Ram Man.

    Just my opinions:

    A) If you make let say 100 more than subscriptions, that's not plenty in my mind

    B) They had ridiculous 5min sell out! Means they really didn't have "plenty"

    C) You can easily watch how many each figures are available after market. In case of Fisto you don't find him anywere! Look Ram Man.. same thing. Ebay is empty on him, so no even retailers don't have him except maybe few items with insane price.

    You may be right. But then again, we won't really know for a couple more weeks. Some people may be waiting to see what the commanding price is. They may not want to sell for too low. That being said there are 15 on ebay right now and BBTS has a bunch available as well. You're totally right about Fisto. There weren't even enough to cover subscribers! I just would hope they learned their lesson with that one!

    It is total BS that people are buying him to make a profit while genuine collectors miss out. I got one with my sub and a second DOS for the second head. That is enough for me. Sorry to those who missed out and will need to pay a premium.

    I only debated getting a second one for trading fodder. The reason I didn't the only two I would trade for atm would be Teela, and King Grayskull. The second wouldn't happen, and Teela may or may not have happened.

    Perhaps, but this is a concept that YOU MUST accept if you want to get involved in collecting. This is NO THING new. It amazes me that people still get up in arms over all this stuff when A) it's always been this way and B) will continue to be this way.

    There's just no sense in making an issue over it and getting worked up over it...

    As crappy as it is, it's no different than the stories you hear about people lining up at retail outlets they day after a shipment has come in to pick the shelves clean of variants and hard-to-find toys to sell on e-Bay.
    Sadly, you can't divorce emotion from a toyline built on nostalgia.

    It's not over inflated if someone pays it, basic law of supply and demand. Does not make anyone a bad person or deserve such a remark

    Have you sustained some sort of head injury, causing you to lose recollection of the last 4 years or so?

    Again though, it's just some thing you have to accept. Hell, I'm WAYYY past the point of ever walking in to a toy store thinking that I'll ever find any thing good and have accepted that LONG ago. If I want it bad enough I'll get it some where else is I can. If I think that the price is outrageous or some thing that I can't afford I simply don't buy it, but sure as hell am not going to complain about it.

    People have to understand that often things are listed at certain prices because that's what they actually sell at. If that's what they're selling at how can any of us complain.

    It's just the way it is.....Same thing with some thing like tickets. They're a pain in the ass to get for certain events. Again....it's just the way it is. As "Markatisu" said, simply laws of supply and demand.

    There's really no sense in even bringing it up and it's not going to change any thing and is some thing we just have to deal with.

    I know of some org members that did buy extra RAM MAN's to sell in a few months time...when he is at top dollar...I figured there would be thousands of him, and they wouldn't make any real money...they may make quite a BONANZA...

    Why do you assume everyone who buys multiples plans to scalp on them? I've got 3 Ram Man (2 through subs, 1 DoS), and I won't be selling ANY of them on eBay nor anywhere else EVER. Two I will keep for myself to display both looks (and possibly to customize the second body in cardback colors if the line ends without a release of that variant), and the other one is for a small basic MotU collection I'm giving away to my nephews. In fact, I bought an extra one on DoS precisely so as to avoid having to pay an obscene amount on the secondary market later, and I would have bought two more (one for me to keep MoC, and another one to give away to another nephew in the future) were it not for the fact that Matty was charging an inflated amount for shipping and my budget for this month was already drained.

    Anyone willing to sell a ram man

    I was not able to get a Rammy. My phone was being slow and he was sold out before I could confirm the order. I am very sad.

    I'm right with you. I always forget the dern agreement box. Is it just me or are the matty captchas harder to read than any other website? I usually refresh them until I find one I can somewhat read.

    Yeah, that agreement box almost messed me up as well as I kept forgetting it, and it was hard to see on my phone.

    Well if thats not your intention..then the comment doesnt pertain to you..it wasn't even your post..why get all bent outta shape.
    and as far as someones comment on the price not being over-inflated as long as someones willing to pay for it...well not necessarily, what happens is these things sit on Ebay forever with a ridiculous price and in some cases never move. This is even worse for sneaker collectors who are into the air-jordan sneakers if anyone remembers those..They get old ones reissued and released in retail stores for $150 but you have no chance to buy one...its worse than a $200 TV on a black friday sale. Theyre sold out before you buy..ordering online even worse..Ive seen big sites crash personally like footlocker etc.. Then these sneakers pop up on Ebay for $300-$400 dollars but noone buys them. Theres even a reseller sneaker store here by me that has them all in stock but cannot move them, they sell regular sneakers and clothing to stay in business but these Air Jordans just sit on the shelves...I actually talked them down after 3 visits down to $10 over retail cash on one pair...
    Its just plain old American greed.
