Once they stop making them and when supply runs out, demand will increase and so will the price. Even if bandai were to make an official Metal Build of the Strike, this one will still have a market because it's 1/72 scale and can be use as a night light next to your bed, j/k
Unlike Bandai who would stop production and move on to something else, this company (if still around) likely does not follow that thinking. So I am pretty sure they would make 3rd or even 4th wave, if the toy is selling well. Of course, now they wouldn't because of the suspension.
So, my order got cancelled last week because apparently there was a crackdown by Bandai to the factories in China. For those that already got them, consider yourself extremely fortunate!
where was your order cancelled from? there's plenty of sellers on ebay, including the guy i got mine from that supposedly have them in stock.
Local seller. He said that the third batch have been cancelled, and I assume that would be for future batches as well (EDIT: unless MOShow is just planning to lay low for now until things cool down). The sellers in ebay may already got their stock from previous batches. The reason I went for the later batch was because I did not pull the trigger quick enough to PO from the earlier ones.

Tomorrow is the 1st day I can escalate the issue to eBay directly...waiting has been the theme with this toy. I doubt I'll get it after this "fun" experience.
This really is an awesome metal build , I hope this experience is not big enough to stop you from ever getting it in the future. Ebay will be on your side once they look that the sellers recent feedback and the forever tracking number.
Thanks, jay...I'll consider it but for now, I'm leaning towards no. Got a pile of 3rd-party TFs to get and with all the Bandai reveals lately, I'm going to be @$$broke anyways trying to keep up. The Metal Builds and GFF Metal figures are good enough to satisfy my gokin-fix for Gundam.
ok. as a fellow collector i just feel as as if i need to do my part in getting this amazing gokin into peoples hands. i have a feeling that if someone doesn't get it now they will regret it down the road.
