No they would not. They only say sorry it's not available anymore to me.

Sideshow Collectibles appear to have been going through some form transitional period over the past year.
It's safe to assume they will never let on why.

1/4 scale PF prices have been rising?
Waitlist option changed to "free for all" (apparently)
Art prints re released with added diamond dust on sale at crazy high prices? ($4000.00)
Susan - dropped? (bad move)
The online store has had all sorts of oddities added, including Barbie style dolls on sale at high prices? (Wonder Woman is in the sale in anyone is interested?)
If you believe YouTuber's, Sideshow might be responsible for over inflated prices when it comes to Hot Toys figures.

All the above might be the result of loosing market share to the likes of Prime 1, XM Studios, and other companies all doing the same thing.

Sticking the statue theme, it begs the question: How many people collect this stuff? if XM Studio's MTO (made to order) is anything to go by, 999 units downwards appears to be the norm. It's normal for Sideshow to make many more units than this. Some pieces hang around for years, appearing in every sale. It paints a picture of quite a small customer base. With prices creeping up, that customer base is slowly being alienated (being priced out) or having to be more selective.

I can only speak for myself. I know for a fact i'm winding up my pre_orders. I will continue to follow the hobby. I see me limiting myself to one new piece per year. At the moment i have just 1x Prime 1x Sideshow 1x XM 1x HMO 3x Hot Toys on pre_order. Then i'm debt free

My 2020 transitional period might include hunting down some older pieces going for low prices
..my collection lacks a HULK, Spider-man, Wonder Woman, Batman.

Has anyone who received a damaged base (on the variant) gotten any new updates or information? This is going on a month now.

Radio silence. Iíve been waiting nearly 30 days now. Every time I contact them they tell me they have no information and that Iíll have to wait for them to respond.

People's Waitlist options appear to be converting, I wish my Ex would convert!
With my Luck, I'd Probably be busy & miss my shot to buy with the new Free-for-all rules... I followed the Spooktacular pretty closely, yet Somehow I managed to MISS Both the Daredevil & X-force Psylocke Variants!

Well, at least we know it's not just us. There's at least two of us in the boat

Now the only thing to do is get her to fit into the base.
Any update pics on the replacement?

I went to a general store. They wouldn't let me buy anything specifically.

I haven't heard anything either. I emailed them last week to ask about it but no response. I really don't mind if they are waiting on replacements from the factory, but I would like some form of communication. I have never had an issue take this long to be resolved.
