You said it man ! It’s ridiculous ! If you go to Amazon’s page looking for the set, it’s nothing but prices listed at one hundred and fifty, to a hundred and seventy dollars .. As soon as it becomes available these scalpers buy them all up .. I’d really like to find them at target, Ross, or Walmart . Fifty bucks is reasonable but I refuse to pay what they’re asking .. lol I’ll wait...

Yeah, I think Mega messed up distribution pretty hard on these It appears such a small number of these were actually produced, I know very few people with hem them, and have seen about twice as many on eBay for LAUGHABLE prices (excess of $100 plus shipping) As a British fan, I very much doubt I’m ever going to get my hands on one of these, or much else of the new line.

Scalpers buy what is for sale. Mega has control over who they distribute to, and when. So Mega does enable Scalpers when they release only to one vendor, like Amazon. Mega decides to be in a hurry about this, and not wait to release to multiple vendors at the same time. Many items never show up in Toronto, Canada, nor on Amazon Canada. This adds false value and false "collectibility" from our...

I say this knowing that I struggle doing it.. I don't mind paying $2 or $5 more for something I really want but I draw the line pretty quickly after that. The only way to fix this is to not buy from scalpers. They know people will pay crazy amounts for something and they get rich doing it. Why would anyone pay $100 for a $5 figure? Have people lost their minds that is insane! Let them be stuck...

As annoying as it is, there's nothing stopping people from buying up huge amounts of stock, and there's nothing Mega can do about it.

I am dearly hoping we can get an official answer. From an Ebay shop, we are under the assumption one person ordered more than 10 and had a listing for 150usd a pop. We can assume that all of Amazons were bought out majority wise by at least 1-3 people while everyone else who got one ordered were extremely lucky. It wasn't even available to purchase for more than an hour before it was...

Well I don't want to blame them for the problems they have with production, supply and distribution, even if I'm directly concerned leaving in France and be forced to buy from scalpers^^. We don't know what it is behind the scene, at least for me it's not my job, to organize worldwide distribution etc.. so yeah I pretty much have to deal with it :/ Where i'm concern is the lack of...

Same with Wave 3 masters of the universe single figures. Because of the very limited quantitys and so far amazon US only sale, ppl go nuts and pay 100$ per figure or 400$ per 5er set. So there are serious issues with producing, supply and distribution. If you read older posts this a long term issue of Mega and i really wonder how hard can it be to fix it?
