Yep, I don't even see a listing for it on their web store yet. I will check back a few minutes before just in case.

I was able to order the carrying case and Japanese packaged 3-pack without any trouble. $45 each though, ouch.  :-\

Ugh, I am a sucker for those vinyl carrying cases.  I ordered the case and the 3 pack for just $105 with shipping.  Ouch.

I want the exclusive figure, but their prices are getting stupid.

Agreed, and I think it is a result of them going back to doing their own thing without the support of Funko. So we wind up with $15 MOTU figures you can only buy online, and $45 vinyl carrying cases. I'm kinda glad now there is not much else on the horizon with these guys.

No more stupid than those of us willing to pay them.   :-[

That's why I don't own yesterday's exclusive Alien. :)

Small company...  assumed small runs...  It is what it is. 

It's like any number of other small toy lines out there now.  They're doing some incredible stuff, but you actually have to pay to get it.  :-X

All of the figs are gone from my local Barnes and Noble as well, this coupled with a lack of new product at the last two Toy Fairs means this line is truly dead.  RIP ReAction.  I was hoping to get Pee Wee Herman and Last Starfighter figs but I am happy with what they did make...fun times

Last Starfighter and Running Man would have been cool, but I'm happy with what they put out and my shelf is pretty much full now anyway.  RIP.

Sure, I get it - but they've really gone overboard with the exclusives with this line.  It's only what, 2 years old and almost every movie or show they've done figures from had variants. 

I have 9 different T-1000's...7 or 8 Predators... black and white figures, glow in the dark figures, flocked figures, blood splatter versions, blue plastic monsters, green plastic monsters, with or without a hat or headband, battle damaged figures, superman on Sloth's shirt.. 8-Bit video game Freddy and Jason, Marty McFly with Einstein, Beam-Me-Up versions of Star Trek, He-man in prototype, B&W and color, Gustavo with his face melted off, orange Nightmare Before Christmas figures, "Starry" Alien figures, Clear Alien figures, Prototype Alien Figures, Blue Lo-Pan, FOUR different heads for Jack Skellington, there are even two sharks!

And that's just off the top of my head, and only from sub-lines I actually collect personally.  There are way way too many exclusives.  It's to the point where I don't bother anymore unless they fall into my lap for a reasonable price.

Well, kinda like with repaints of Stormtroopers and things...  Sometimes that's how reinvestment helps a line keep going.

On a more personal level for me (Reaction stuff was never high on my list besides the Alien figures), Acid Rain's one thing comes in 2 decos, another is out in multiple variations at this point and costs anywhere from $99-$120 more or less...  So far I own it all, and plan to own more of it.  THAT is expensive, lol.  Not much I'm saying no to there, and some of it is a pure deco change too. 

I think for the ReAction line they were trying really hard to max out investment...  Tough to blame them, as how many could they possibly be selling?  It's not like Hasbro after all.

I like these niche toy lines, personally.  People (and I'm not pointing fingers at you Rob, this is a general thing) like to say put your $ where your mouth is on wanting this or that...  And I agree.  If you like it, support it, and you may get more of it...   That's why I'm all-in supporting Hiya's Aliens line...  I wanted SA Aliens in this scale for eons, and getting them for a "fair" (by my standards) price.  And they're hinting at going further with it (APC), and moving into other properties (Original Predator).  Likewise, Acid Rain...  $150 for something I REALLY like isn't that hard to stomach I guess. 

Like I say, sometimes I think the repaints and such, they help move other things along.  Sometimes they're just a cash grab too.  But for a small company, I dunno how much it was greed and how much it was them trying to make it "highly collectible" while still milking a mold so they could do the next thing they wanted to try.
