pawcanada Posted November 10, 2007 Share Posted November 10, 2007 Ugh. I am so SICK of exclusives. Not everyone has easy access to them (bar Ebay which I prefer to stay away from). Why can't they include costumes like Web Armour and Scarlet in NORMAL waves so people have an easier chance to get them? What part of the word "exclusive" don't you understand. It means something that everyone wants but not everyone can have. I don't see why this is always an issue. I was gona order some BSG mates, but I'd rather deal with Corner Store Comics anways, and with the shipping and the orders falling through, I think I'll do like others and wait for ebay. Or knowing AFX, that have literally thousands of these. There's no way they're gona run out and I'll just wait till they dump the rest. In this context, exclusive refers to the fact that it isn't offered by other retailers - it really has nothing to do with a discrepancy between people who want and those who can have. Simply put, it is only available through this outlet and no others. Exactly. I live in the UK so I am no easy position to get some of the excsluives, and by sod's law they're the ones I really want, namely this one and the Scarlet Spider minimate that was announced a few weeks back. They're two of my favourite Spidey costumes and ones I've wanted to see in Minimate form since I first started collecting them. I asked a local shop if they could import the Scarlet minimate and they weren't sure. I've been keeping an eye on sites I could possibly order it from and so far no luck. And as for Web Armour, I've just picked up all the minimates I want at this moment in time (and ordered some others through the shop I mentioned above), so I am in no position to spend the $25 needed to get this minimate. Web Armour and Scarlet are two that I'd much rather have in my collection that another bloody version of the Classic costume which was included in the recent box set and planned for an up coming wave. Like I said earlier, why can't they do what they've done so far with DC and include all of the exclusives in waves which are easier for everyone to get, also allowing for wave to be released more frequently? Yes there is Ebay but frankly I hate that site and prefer not to use it. Or heck, why not do those costumes in a box set with some of the other alternative Spidey costumes? Maybe have Scarlet, Web Armour, Iron Spidey, 2099 unmasked and Ben Reilly unmasked box set. I'd buy that in a heart beat. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
