I'm not sure BBTS would improve your experience since Spidey was a Mezco Exclusive. They get it from the same source and flip it. It'd be more steps and handling to twist your anxiety knife.

I have my own mental demons. I get it.

I need a new body anyway for a custom, but I hope he has more to him.
I’m hoping for a minimally good packing (at least taped,so that the product doesn’t get too exposed).
FedEx has worked great for me, always delivering fast and with the boxes in good condition.

I believe the thing with BBTS is that, since they probably get a higher number of pieces, it’s quite unlikely that theirs would be badly packaged.
And they pack extremely well (they are my main figure source nowadays, due to their overall quality and their pile of loot). Also whenever it’s reasonable, I get the collectors grade option for the double box protection.

But now that is all moot, since I already preordered on Mezco and it’s sold out on BBTS.

Thanks for the words, let’s hope our mental demons never devour us.

Cheers and stay safe.

Wish they didn’t have the same Grub in both the advent calendar and the Gomez. Only real complaint.

Yeah, it's a pretty good set. The $20 coupon helped with the sale, too.

Excited to see what the secret accessory is for Gomez and Grub. D_Amazing didn’t show them in the video review either.

Might flip Eddi. Gomez is the package that entertains me.

The idea of both of them together is part of what sold me. A festively decorated zip sword and sheath and trapper hat also helped a bit.

And even though I constantly tell my daughters how stupid blind boxes are, I can't wait to see what's in the gift boxes.

The jacket helps make the sweater less ugly. I like the base artwork better. Matching patterns for Gomez and Grub without anything on the biceps...

Yeah, I can't bring myself to do it. Instead I'll spend on non seasonal clothes for the pair.

Mezconians,

We've been getting a lot of questions regarding shipping on holiday items and product in general. We have multiple containers currently at port, and many are in the process of unloading and shipping (including The Advent Calendar and Holiday Gomez).

We have more containers arriving weekly. Since the holidays have been turned upside down, we decided to offer a "Missedmas Coupon" with our latest release, Holiday Gomez.

We are doing everything we can to have as many items shipped during the holiday season.

Thank you for your patience and continued support.

The “customer focused” discount that you only receive by buying a new figure is a joke.

Give me a break. Wow.

Not thrilled with the timing of the email either. They seem to be preparing us for the fact that their holiday-based offerings won't actually be shipping in time for the holidays.

So send it out an hour after Holiday Gomez goes on sale? Pretty shady. I know I would have thought a little bit more about my purchase had I received this email first.
