    I’ll try and post pictures once I get it. I guess the boots aren’t so bad to get off. Just roll up the pant leg and unzip. Lightly fold enough to pull it off the leg, and that’s that.

    Not online, pick up only. I checked and it listed a Game Stop about :30 minutes from me. I was ready to walk out of the house, but called first. The guy had no idea what I was talking about. I told him it lists his location as the only one in Arizona with stock, he said they never had any.

    I don’t know why GameStop/ThinkGeek does that. If you’re running a sale offer an option for shipping. It’s no good to me to know about the sale if I can’t get it and just irritates me.

    I actually got my Sulu through GameStop last year online and it was also heavily discounted and included free shipping...I think I ended up spending $100 even with all of the discounts...my local Thinkgeek store always has Sulu in stock...20 minutes away...Whenever I am there and see people literally walking by the 2 Sulus on the shelf (for months) it almost pains me to think about how the opportunity is being squandered when some collectors would stampede to buy those figures...unfortunately it has not reopened from the Pandemic yet. I miss the place. They keep updating their social media that they will be ?opening very soon.?

    It's a common tactic by retailers to offer fantastic deals on in-store only items. By the time you get there, they simply say they are sold out, when in reality, they had none to begin with. It's a deceptive means of increasing footfall into the store. They believe you will be reluctant to leave empty handed, thus making the trip pointless, so increasing the likelihood you will make an unplanned purchase, to justify the journey.

    Yep...?Bait & Switch? its infuriating. I worked in retail in college and my department store gave us a ton of training to ensure that we would not commit Bait & Switch...apparently there are consumer regulations against it. If the great priced promo item was out of stock we would literally have to give them another more expensive item for the price of the sold out promotional item.

    Regulations aren?t what they used to be...

    If it opens and you can get me one again I’m willing to pay you for your time. Would be an awesome deal.

    I think the boots are not an issue, it's the overall look of the slimmer frame of the new body that counts...

    Comparing to other 1:6 action figures the QMx TOS are not that sophisticated. You can get a Napoleon with all his decorations, boots, uniform, coat, sword etc. for 179 USD. And not a muscular body at all!!!

    No I get that the slimmer frame is the goal. I was just iffy on taking the boots off at first. I worried about damaging them, but they come off easier than I expected.
