I'm a little confused and angry. There was a regular version of this figure already for preorder. Now theres a deluxe version that is going to be put out for preorder well after the regular. So since I preordered from sideshow, they already charged me a deposit fee which i cant get back. So angry right now.

Yup, I feel your anger! Obviously Hot Toys knows they will be releasing this figure because they have to plan ahead. Yet, they chose to only show off the regular version first and make all of us pre-order the regular version. Then they spring this surprise only after pre-orders have been confirmed and force those of us who really want this so bad to order this as well when we should have been given the choice to choose which one we want. That leaves most of us who can afford only one figure stranded upon seeing this and feeling angry, and annoyed with the company for doing this to us. Not great for customer satisfaction index.

Brothers in Arms, we love action figures..and in our own ways (opened, unopened, etc)..its our right & no one can degrade us..this is not hate propaganda..its just a kind reminder to STOP being a toy company CASH COW.

A Money Hunger & Disrespecting Stunt displayed by this Dxxxh Txxxxxr Deluxe Marketing Strategy really shows that this Toy Company think us only as their CASH COW and think that we are STUPID enough to not FEEL the tact.

A lot and I mean a lot of toy stores already put high discount 20% - 30% since they have overflow brand new stock. Even cheaper than pre-ordered price!

Your own money is your right, I will not judge or tell you what to do..just be wise and stop being Cash Cow..its really degrading and lots of anger..

Best Regards To All
