I am hoping for option 2, which was my first thought.

I'da thought so too . . . the guy has some serious feedback so I'm guessing he knows his stuff!

Now I've bought the set odds are they'll flood the market at $20 a pop . . . I got the Midas touch in reverse!

I don't know him, but were I a wagering man, I would suggest beer may have been involved. At least that's how my carded collection was finished...

Just received from BBTS:  :(

Hi - after repeatedly emailing our distributor in Japan about this set, we finally heard back from them via Medicom:

"The manufacturer (Medicom) has confirm that they could not deliver it to the wholesaler due to a licence problem with Tomy on this product only. "

Due to this licensing problem, our distributor in Japan was unable to receive any of these items. This situation has never happened to us before and it sounds like it was unusual on their end as well. I'm truly sorry for the problem on this item, but due to the licensing issue in Japan, we will not be able to get any product or fill any preorders. We will cancel all orders and remove this item from our website - sorry!

Thanks
Joel

That stinks- I can't believe how few of these seem to be around- maybe they will eventually hit a retail store in Japan?

I thought it was strange right off the bat that they would offer a Medicom Club Exclusive like this, being that it never happened with any of the other set etc.
BUT hoped they came through for you guys being that it might mean some of these thing s would be offered like this again in the future.

Such is Kubricks.

Pisser!  Also seems unlikely that we would see these figures anytime soon given the new wave announcements.  Hopefully they rerelease as a multipack to more outlets down the road.   >:(

Its strange, it was Exclusive to the Club, but it wasn't limited like the others.

I guess I'm not surprised by BBTS's announcement, just surprised it took this long for them to confirm what we've been speculating for a while now.

Sucks for those who were waiting, but I guess it's another case of "if it sounds too good to be true..."

To be expected I guess, it was to good to be true. I went another route & mine should be here early next week.

Well, I'm bummed that I'm not getting them for the BBTS price, but I wouldn't have paid much more than that for the set anyway, so I don't feel too bad about this.  Sucks for the hard core Kubie buyers, but I already feel ripped off at $10 per figure.   :-\

The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself
