I'm looking for the Conan "The prize" diorama. If anyone has seen it at your local U.S. comic book store please IM me? It has pretty much disappeared on the web. Thanks

Thanks, but I saw those on ebay. They're asking 400+ and that statue retailed for about $270 7 months ago.

You said you were looking for,but never said how much you were willing to pay up.

This is how this hobby is.I bought a Hot Toys T2 T-800 for about $140.00 shipped,now they are $400.00.

I wish I had Hulk PF,Dr.Doom PF Spiderman PF.But I started late in the game.

Yeah I kinda get the gist of the hobby, but if someone knows of one at there LCS they're usually going for less than ebay. I'm not wishing for something that sold out years ago. Conan is only a few months old.

even a couple months a piece can jump up in price easily, especially once it sells out at SS. Many pieces lately I have noticed do that.

You're right about that.(expect for carnage) I don't quite understand why though. I've seen statues still for sale on sideshow's site for a month or two after they were shipped to everyone that pre-ordered. Then once they sell out they're a hot item. Prior to that no one seemed to care.
I had every opportunity to order conan months ago, but didn't realize it was a great statue until I saw it in person. By then it was to late.

IT has always been that way alien Warrior 1:1 was instock for awhile same with PCS Ryu, even venom came back on second chance.

Many I don't understand are still sitting in stock....mainly means too much at once, I would pick up so many if I could, but money and space can be limiting.

It was even in the GC section for a while (ex).

Is the regular even hard to find? Does it fetch as much as the EX?

Conan was never in the giftcard section. It took a couple of months past initial arrival to sell out the ex versions, so it hung around the site for a little while after stocks arrived, but they were all gone by December last year, inside of three months after release, as I had a damaged flex pay Conan EX that I couldn't get replaced because they had all sold out by that time.

I don't think there's a hard set time limit per se, but in general it usually takes a good five or six months after initial release until something hits the giftcard section from what I've noticed, unless I guess they are just swamped with unsold pieces, then it might be shifted to giftcard earlier. For example the Temple of Doom Indy PF hit around the start of last December, is still available, but isn't yet gift card eligible, and that's been a good four months. However the Colossus LSB that hit in November is on the giftcard list already...

This is one of those pieces that you will be buried with when you die.
