It is good to see wait list orders being activiated. Unfortunately for me, I'm probably pretty far down the list since I didn't even hear about the figure until about a day after it was released.
Unless you're a conspiracy theorist and think that they produce enough additional figures to take care of people on the wait list. The factories usually run batches of product in set increments. They never release the production counts of the non limited figures, so if batches can be made in groups of 200 let's say, then they can set up the initial run for 600 figs. If they get another 200 wait listers, they can just up the production to 800, with mostly guaranteed sales. I find it a little odd that they always sell out so quickly, then seem to fill so many wait listers. Are that many initial buyers not able to purchase or cancelling their orders? Seems a little unlikely to me.
I'd like to know if anyone who signed up for a wait list didn't get their figure...I've been on three wait lists so far and was able to get all three items, but maybe I've just been lucky.
