guess this means if you want some thing and you previously couldn't log on, now is your chance.

For those group ordering at the moment, I'd order asap as stuff will likely start to disappear.

Quite a range there - from bargains to highway robbery. I'm gagging on those custom class kit prices - Laserwave, Minerva, or G2 Sideswipe for US$475 each?!

Still best to group order anyway. Shipping will gouge your wallets individually. Their computers overcharged me, but they refunded pretty much straight away, just after it was posted.

Oh man, I really want an Animated Minerva and it's on their list, but $475 for it is as Suspectimus says highway robbery.

You know how its a custom class figures, and you gotta paint it up, etc.
Well if you're prepared to go to all that trouble, Shapeways have a number of conversion kits to make an animated minerva. Be a darn sight cheaper than FunPub's scalping

The prices are steep, but keep in mind that (especially for the earlier custom classes) these figures are extremely limited. There was only 30 or 40 seats in each of the two classes that the Minerva was used. there was a bagged one selling for around 1K that day or the next on eBay. Many of them would still be in the collections of their owners so the amount in circulation is very low.

Yes they are making a ridiculous profit off this one but can you blame them for starting high and gradually reducing the price until it moves when it's something as sought after as Animated Minerva or one of the other custom class figures.

What he said. They are extremely limited. And they wouldn't show up very often. If someone desperately wants it in their collection, they'll pay it. Sure we think it's over the top, but to someone that really wants it will pay for it. Or snap it up when it comes down in price

A good old fashioned Dutch auction?

It's annoying how a bunch of items I wanted to get earlier this year (when Griffin was doing a group order) but they "sold out" are back in the store and on sale again. I put a few things into a cart but it was going to be a minimum of $55 USD postage (for one figure!). Some things never change. That $8 Depth Charge remains out of reach!

I've just down a Melb group buy (well, 3 of us) in the last month Paulbot... sorry we missed you. I should have made a bigger call. I handed stuff off to Borgeman last week and I'll be handing stuff off to Civic Bossman this coming week.

I'm heading over again in a couple of months, so if it's still in stock happy to ferry back for you.
