    The price of MOTU has gone up around the world on Origins and Masterverse because of the shipping and transportation problem costs filtering through to the consumer. Same with Hasbro. The beancounters probably also got used to that 'treat the kids during the pandemic' money too.

    People must have been canceling on BBTS. Webstor was just back up for sale. I managed to grab one.

    I ordered the whole wave too. I got just Webstor in. Decided to ship as I've had a few other items in my POL for over a month now.

    Did you order the whole wave as a set (1 item added to cart at 59.99) or as indivdual pieces (4 items added to cart separately)? BBTS has never fulfilled a partial Wave like that when I've ordered as a set.

    Dang, that's a big markup. Why are they selling for so much over retail?

    Individually. I always order as a set, but for some reason when I ordered these they were only available individually.

    I've heard that when preordered items get cancelled, BBTS marks them up. I've only heard that - I haven't been around long enough to verify it myself. But if that's true, maybe that is what happened here. Some people cancelled Trap Jaw because he was delayed so long, and BBTS finally got them in and marked them up.

    Just a guess because that is quite a mark-up and a cause for concern if they do that with other figures.

    - - - Updated - - -

    He's already sold out again, so my guess is that they only had a few at this price. They probably get automatically put up on the website once the cancellation happens and if there is a markup for cancelled preorders, that would happen automatically too.

    Who knows though...

    So that just means that those of us who ordered the wave as a set will have to wait for all four to be in stock before dropping into the pile of loot.

    I got the "preorder processing soon" email for Webstor, but then instead of going into my pile of loot, they quietly changed the estimated arrival to October.

    I think he's turned up in the wild in a few places, but as far as I know, no preorders from any online sellers have come in yet.

    I got my Mosquitor from Entertaiment Earth almost 3 weeks ago. My Webstor and Stinkor are on the way from EE and I should get them at end of next week.

    BBTS may have had to go through channels other than Mattel. Hell for all we know they flew to Europe to pick them up.

    EEís warehouse is in Simi Valley. Very close to the Long Beach port Mattel likely ships into. BBTS is all the way in Wisconsin or something. So they have to wait longer for stuff I bet.

    I have the next few waves preordered. I hope they post the Masterverse Trap Jaw soon, since I think that head will complete my ideal Trap Jaw.
