Seriously, I'm surprised they aren't doing pre-orders. In addition to helping have a guide to stock allocation, they'd already have had my money for about a week.

And I probably wouldn't be the only one...

Yes they do, I've placed preorders through amazon for various figure lines.

Not sure if it's been a long term thing though as I've only noticed preorders for figures coming up recently although I could have just missed it before.

Something's not right though.

Companions sets are $49.99. But the TARDIS set is....$44.99? And the Daleks are $39.99? I'd have expected the prices to be the inverse in terms of cost, especially with the UK pricing.

But more notably, if you click on the first 3 items you go straight to Amazon to order them. If you click on the new sets....nothing happens.....yet.

That's really weird.

I was going to speculate on why that might be happening, then I realized I had no idea.

So I'll just keep it as "That's really weird."

It's almost like someone said, "You know, nobody in the US actually knows these are discount store sets..."

See, I'd lean that way OR understand an exchange/freight markup necessary to get them to the US....

But then:

In the UK: 3 figure price = TARDIS set $ < Dalek set $
In the US, per site: 3 figure Price > TARDIS set price > Dalek set $

That's the real headscratcher..... :?:
