Those both look great did you go with the drone customs head ?

I bought a Robin head from GeekMechanics a while back but I did contact Drone for this version.

If we can have multiple Batmen why not Robins too? :p

Funny thing at the Slugfest's Emporium of Badassery today. First, TWO drops today (the Krig black spartan and another one in white and black, which looked like a mix of a Krig and a stormtrooper). Then the white one disappears (I wonder if preorders were cancelled for those lucky and quick enough to jump on it). Lastly, unlike previous times (at least my experience for Mezco exclusives) the black spartan didn't disappear in 20 minutes.

I wonder if it's because they messed up on Mezco's end and something went bad with the preorders, leaving people incredible upset, or if it's just that either there are tons on units available of the black spartan (unlike other Mezco's limited editions) or that for some reason people are not that much into this figure.

Nice. Only took two years since she went up for pre-order (and far more than that since she was first revealed at a con).

If it's this Wonder Woman it was solicited 11 months ago.

I was probably thinking of the PX version pre-order date, which was in 2019.

It disappeared because it sold out.

Same with Krig.

Same with the Black Skulls and Tectonic Bends when they first listed them. Easier to just take it off and waitlist later that get web traffic for a sold out listing.

My Krig order for a friend was just confirmed. This how Mezco usually operates.

Black Krig is a special outrage. It was part of a 400 dollar (Canadian) set and in hand, the figure sort of sucks. It's a repainted Cable with cool accessories. Not that poseable. Once the hype wore off Krigs were being flipped.

It's just extras they had and lately they're attempting to regain control of the aftermarket values with reissues.

At least black and white and the red one look clean on a shelf.

PX went up in July and made it out in October, if I recall my order.

Why a 90% recolor with new heads and accessories took so long is another investigation.

Just reiterating my comment on the last page in case it got buried- Mr Freeze is delayed to the Sep-Nov window.

Yes. After posting this comment I went to eBay and there they were, all those white Krig ranging from $200 - $280. What threw me off is that the white one seemed to go really fast but the black one didn't. But you just explained to me why people were not that much into that one. It took almost a full hour to disappear, which is kinda an eternity for a Mezco Exclusive.

Until today, I never noticed Mezco taking the listings off their site after they sell out. That recent Mossman -sasquatch has been there for the waitlist after selling out, and I remember the same with Bends. I didn't keep an eye on those black skulls or te latest gomez.

The black Krig is also the only one that's not a duplicate in the lore. All the other ones come in 2s and 4s, so there's probably more appeal to army build.

I think they only do it on items they'll know they get slammed on.

Who knows with them. Maybe their site just continues to suck.
