Imagine if the consumer could get anywhere closer to the wholesale price, when purchasing each figure. I'm all for cutting out 1 more step of an extra mark-up in cost. I'm all for cuttingout competing with scalpers in stores, employee's poor knowledge of the product, or the employee's unwillingness to help a customer get something that is sitting just behind the doors on a pallet.

What other option are we left with? Paying extra one way or another... buying online, ebay prices, etailer's marked up price, shipping charges for shopping online.

What if buying directly allowed you to pay less than retail price? Potentially coming up with a far less expensive shipping arrangement & still breaking even with current retail store prices.

For me the only problem with manufacturers selling directly, is that manufacturers so farhave not been able to handle the amount of traffic on their website sales.

But you dont get wholesale prices. When you buy a Marvel Legends from say HasbroPulse as opposed to BBTS its still the same $20 price. When you buy Thundercats from super7 its the same price as BBTS charges. Yeah BBTS got a limited number of these and had to sell at a higher price, not because Mezco was selling it to us at wholesale but because BBTS had to pay the same price as you and me. These toy manufacturersarent doing you any favors selling directly, they are cutting out the small etailers more and more it seems so they can retain more of the profit themselves. Meanwhile they buy no advertising for things like this, they expect that and usethe fandom to get it for free. So that hurts sites like this. So in the end they are essentially killing off everything that has supported and kept this hobby growing and going for so many years, at least thats how I see it.

I'm also surprised it actually lasted some hours, you can still join the wait list and might get it.

I'm still pissed about the situation, but by some sort of miracle I managed to get one. Chose the BBTS route for several reasons including the NRD being just 15 bucks. In the end the difference will be just 20 something if you count their shipping that is very steep price.

The overall high price for me is not justified accessory wise.

But this is so iconic that I really had to give this a shot.

I feel better about preordering the figure knowing it has sold out. I would have a pretty good amount of regret if I passed on it.

I have the Keaton Batman Returns Hot Toys version and this appears to have more range of motion that figure, as well as the 7" version that Neca made. I'm weary of posing around my Neca Batman 89 figure because of breakage. So, hopefully I won't have to worry about breakage with Mezco's version. I mean, God forbid I actually want to play around with these toys. LOL

The figure lasted a few hours at least. It's Sold Out now. Can't complain too much there. I seriously figured this would have been gone in 5 minutes.

I thought so too, especially since they allowed people to order 6 at a time. My guess is that alot of people were put off by the $110.00 price tag.

This is an extremely cool figure. I'm glad people had a little bit of chance to get one instead of selling out immediately.

I was able to preorder the figure without any problems. Although, I seen a couple of online complaints/issues of peoplenot be able to submit their order with Mezco's website. So they just preordered with BBTS.

I'm not fully happy about this preorder because I haven't been a fan of the soft goods look on figures. However, this Batman 89 looks like it's done very well. I'm hoping the figure gets great reviews at Toy Fair so I can fill better about my preorder.

Yeah, I had a really rough time getting the website to progress from page to page. Error'd out on a few occasions. Once I hit the 10min. mark, I was sure that I was done for. But somewhere around 15-20min. I got my order through.

Some of the best figures in this line have ended up being released as some type of limited exclusive. Frankly I really get tired of all these toy manufactures trying to sell directly to the consumer. They should be working with the online etailers like a BBTS more to get their product out, not try and cut them out. You squeeze out the small etailers who have dedicated themselves to selling these things and you might as well put the writing on the wall for this hobby.

IF themanufacturer's websites could handle the sales, I'd prefer it to be this way. But currently, NO.

Not huge on cloth figures but this looks like one of the few I may make an exception for.

Same here. Typically not into cloth with figures. Sometimes a cape or cloak is ok. But this one was a must have. Most of Mezco ONE:12 is a pass for me. But there are a handful of gems out there. This will be my 5th ONE:12 figure. So far I've been mostly happy with the ones I've gotten. My SDCC Moon Knight did split the stitching in the crotch though.

I have to say I am overall not a fan of the soft-goods either but I saw this one in person last year at Toy Fair and these images actually look a little better than when I saw it then. I think its def better than the NECA one.

I should say NECA's 7" one. The 18" one was probably as good as this.
