Just another way for the fans to get screwed...

I'd like to know how Brians Toys have so many Saculs? I did an order using thier shopping cart and ordered 200 (I dont plan on buying them) Wasn't there a 2 per person limit? And to charge $125 for each... that's just robbery.

I'll never order anything from them unless they can honestly justify having so many Saculs and the price they charge.

'Nuff said

I don't think they keep track of how many they actually have. I was messing around with it and put in 30000 for my quantity and it said I had a 30000 Jorgs in the cart at the checkout.

Now I'm 100% certain they don't keep track. Look at this order.

You can order 200 million off the website if you want, BT's will only ship how many they have in stock and only charge you for the ones they ship. The only way to get up to date availability of figures is to call and have them check for you.

What's the big deal about that figure? It's just George Lucas's head on an X-Wing pilot's body...:rolleyes:

Yeah, but I wouldn't pay 15 dollars for it, let alone 125 for it. If anyone pays that, they deserve what they get.

Watching the folks standing just outside the C2 store and waiting for them to stop selling figures. Then, all of a sudden, they pull out 5 or 6 figures. Started selling them for $20 right then and there.

It was not hard to take advantage of the situation. I actually scored 1 more than I had planned. My wife did not buy any, so I bought two more, plus a friend sold me one for $10.

I heard one person had 50 figures. Another problem was that dealers and exhibitors could get in line for everything before fan club and non fan club people could. It was amazing to see maybe a couple hundred people ahead of me in line to get in, and around 600 people in front once the doors opened. You would see dealers opening their stands an hour after the doors opened and they would start selling Sacul figures.

Nice system:frus:
