Thanks that is good to know. But sheesh, what happened to the first production run? How many did they even make? I figured I would have seen this in a TRU but I never even heard of them hitting a brick and mortar store.

Does BBTS ever give out promo codes for free shipping?  ;D

I have never seen free shipping from BBTS - I think they don't do it because they know that people will take advantage of their pile of loot feature.

I don't think these 1/4 scale figures really make it to brick and mortar stores - they take up too much shelf space and I don't think many stores are willing to dedicate that much space to them.  TRU stores did carry wave 1 of the 1/4 scale Predators but I think they stopped after that wave and then just started selling them exclusively on their website.

And also, for what it worth, I check TRU.com nearly every day for new NECA items they put up for sale.  I did see the 1/4 GD put up for one day and it was in stock and I debated getting it too.  The next day it was pulled from their site from what I can tell.

So yeah, one day only - thats pretty fast for it to sell out.

Oh man, I saw it too and had it up ALL DAY on my computer and when I finally went to pull the trigger it was already gone. I was SO mad about that! I could have gotten it with free shipping too! The cheapest one I can find on Amazon is $145, no thanks.

I did notice it said "Item is available in stores" so maybe it will turn up in a TRU Express or something. I'm not giving up hope yet, but I am gonna stalk TRU.com like a mutha for the next few weeks!

tru.com put the 1/4 GD back up online but it was not in stock when I saw it - here is the listing.  Maybe they are going to put more back online?

Wow, great catch. I checked like 3-4 times at least yesterday so the listing must have just gone up overnight. As soon as that goes available I am pouncing on it!

Oh, I know, but now even the listing is gone! Why did they even bother putting it up? Never came into stock that I saw.

I'm torn on this one, don't want to overpay but fear the limited run could make it only harder to find the longer I wait.

Bam! Just scored the 18" Gipsy Danger with free shipping off TRU.com! So glad I bookmarked that page when I had a chance. It was actually listed as In Stock this morning so I did not hesitate to pull the trigger this time around.

Now I just hope it arrives in halfway decent shape...I have had same bad shipping experiences with ordering online from them in the past. (Knock on wood, fingers crossed, etc)

I'm glad I waited this out, have not seen the price drop on Amazon or eBay at all to this point...

Thanks, according to your link though it is unavilable to add to cart now? That was quick!

At any rate, I appreciate the head's up, but I'm not taking any chances, my order was confirmed via email already and I'm very happy with the $105 price tag. I actually took advantage of a recurring Bill Me Later deal to get 6 months with no interest to pay it off which is only available for orders over $99. That made it a lot more palatable.

I looked around last night for info on other upcoming stuff...sounds like the 7" Wave 3 is expected in February. Not sure about that 18" Knifehead though, I think "second quarter" was the estimate BBTS had on their listing.

we will be seeing series 3 and beyond at TF according to hints Randy has dropped on Twitter.  Pretty sure he even hinted at more coming for the 18" line too

Got my 18" Gipsy Danger in the mail yesterday. Holy crap. One of the Top 10 toys I have ever bought in my whole life. Six pounds of pure awesome! I love this thing!

Can't wait to see what they have coming up at TF...

Thank you!!! Those look incredibly awesome! Last I heard wave 3 was due next month...hope that is still on track.

I guess that would be about it for the jaegers, still plenty of good kaiju left to make though.
