I really don't think bugging them is going to help.

Hmmm....

"Hi, We are still trying to get allocations and pricing on these. Not sure when at this point but will post as soon as we do. probably just boxes to start out. Thanks
Chris"

I have to work in the morning so I can't be around my computer. I don't want to miss out when the presells do go up. It's the only reason I e-mail them daily.

Like every message they have sent you, they say they will "post it as soon as they know," aka they're not going to tell you the day they will put them up, they will just put them up. I agree that bothering them every day isn't going to get them to list them any faster, but as you can see it's not like they're in any hurry to put them up anyways.

And of course they will do just boxes "to start out," that's how they will make more $$$$. More like "we will do just boxes period.."

I am sure they know how much they are getting. They are just holding out.

Just boxes? Surprise! How are you going to start with boxes and end up getting enough product later for cases? Not happening.

Thanks BO.

I would say let him email every morning at least we are getting some truth along with each lie that BO puts out.

From what I've been told, allocations were cut across the board as demand was super high and more people clamoring for the product. I am trying to get a 2nd case, but so far, no luck.

People that did not have a history of pre-ordering previous Cryptozoic products had allocations cut because they ordered a ton this time around trying to jump on this hot product this time around. In previous posts people mentioned that they are getting the same amount of product they ordered from S1 release.

Unless a LCS around me can get a case for me I think I'm going to give up. By the time Blowout has them up they will be over $1,000 which is out of my range. Oh well, maybe Series Three?

BO isn't even going to put up cases, the profit of boxes is overwhelming. most likely 95-100 a box.

I've seen them selling for 110 already, and it's not even out yet.

Exactly why BO is holding out, watch the prices soar and laughing at us on the boards waiting for them to post it because they know most people are going to pay these prices.

My distributor is giving everyone else their allocations this week and saving me for last to try to get me as much as he can. I order a bunch of Non Sports which will help me in the long run but I do not know if I am getting 1 case or 4. I will find out Friday. Whatever I get will be nice because I am getting for $660 a case.
Can't wait till Friday!!!

At that price, I'm thinking you might get 1.

I am dealing with a Distributor and not a "retailer".
I should get more than 1 cases because of some of my other crazy Non Sports buys. I bought 18 cases of Game Of Thrones.

Doesn't work like that though, I mean I hope he takes care of you and all. Most of that allocations with WD S2 have been based on what you bought of WD S1. I spent a lot with my distributors over the past few years - a lot. However it all comes down to allocation. Other people buy product and other people bought WD S1 - they need to be taken care of too, not just late bandwagoners.

Just because people bought Series 1 and not much else does not mean they are guaranteed Season 2.

And just because people bought a lot of other stuff besides Crypto, does not promise them priority all of a sudden. Again though - I wish you the best of luck getting lots of cases.

I would have to agree with you here, todays message just told us they have no intention to sell cases. Also, no intentions on putting up the boxes for sale at a reasonable fair price. Rather BO will be the profiteer here and take the low road to cheat out collectors.

This exactly. So BO will get as much as last year but wont put up cases because it. Wont be as profitable for them.
