No Big Boa? Good thing I already have a deal in place with another HissTank member to get him.

I can't decide if I want to drop dough on Iron Claw, though. His head sculpt is pretty bad.

Are you referring to the extra $2.00 to "upgrade" to collector's grade? Not sure what that means...I assume they inspect the figures and give the ones with the least amount of paint flaws/whatever to the people who upgraded?

Sorry not into paying $50.00 for a fig. BBTS are nothing but glorified scalpers. I wish Hasbro would just go back to selling these at retail.

Yeah, I think I might cancel my preorders for Iron Klaw and Cover Girl. CG just does not look like a $60 figure, and those prices are way too much for them.

As for Jinx, I would rather just get the SDCC one.

BBTS is not scalping in this context, as anyone could have subscribed (i.e. no shortage or lack of availability). Here they are selling some figures at a loss and balancing that out with selling some at a mark-up, providing a service to those that don't have a Club membership, don't want all the figures, missed the deadline, etc.
