    A friend played with the castle at SDCC and she kept raving about it. I saw the TG video and that castle is beautiful and it's big. They made changes and really got it together. I am glad I got mine on preorder. This is going to be a jewel in the collection.

    Sadly, I've just sent my 'please cancel my Castle' email. It's not that I don't want it, I do. But $500 in November is just not doable right now. It's also not essential to me as I never had the original either. Perhaps they'll offer it at some point in 2014 where I'll be able to pick one up then, but if not, I won't be too heartbroken.

    Hilarious. It's not going to show up at Big Lots.

    Seriously, I don't get the anger over the Big Lots situation. Has no one ever seen anything go on clearance before? When it happens, does the store refund everyone who ever bought that item, even if it was years ago?

    You should wait at the door of your local Big Lots.

    Too late to cancel now! (Unless a credit card is "stolen").

    No, but most stores don't "SELL OUT" of a product (multiple times) that more of is just sitting in their warehouse simply to artificially cap the number sold and make the product seem more artificially rare than it actually is, and then stick it out on clearance because it backfired on them.

    Smart companies that pretend to sell out to increase demand do it to make more money, not less.

    Even smarter companies don't need to use shady tactics to sell, and rely on quality product and service so they don't have to resort to such sideshow carny sales tactics.

    Personally, I don't have much problem with the Big Lots thing - but it's just another result of the poor business model set up here.

    I hope November wasn't your only concern since it's shipping in December.

    I'm NOT happy that they moved the Castle from December to November, and that ToyGuru thought August 31st would be the ideal time to make this clear (Still no email sent out explaining the date change to those who pre-ordered.)

    But I want to keep my two Castles. I'm going to find a way to make this happen. I only started buying MOTUC figures to have some to put in my Castles, and I'm not backing out now!

    I wanted to keep both of my Castles, but November was just absolutely undoable for that. Fortunately I ordered one on the first round and one on the second, so I was able to cancel the second one. Maybe it'll stick around long enough for me to do another one after the new year.

    He didn't.

    Scott actually first mentioned it back at SDCC.

    That was a 4 month warning.
