Cost per figure, size and how each case cost is why they had to shuffle. Or so they will tell you. Normally I believe that being in the industry but after opening Wave 5 it shoots that theory out the window.

At the end of the day I do not care just so long as they release the crap.

Same here, but somehow CZ-4 has yet to show up anywhere in this area, which has me a little worried.

They did the same thing last year toward the end. I'll bet they planned it the way it should have been, but I guess stuff happened.

There's going to be a big market for a custom coin-frame to put a complete set in.

Hopefully whoever first makes it leave a spot for the Indy coin too.
