Count me as a +1 for BBTS. Have purchased many items from them. Great company.

Borrow money from a pessimist, they don't expect it back.

Yeah, what're you going to do? Dust the shoulder off and keep it moving.

BBTS isn't always the best option. When you compare them to Secret Compass, BBTS will sometimes jack up the price (to cover expensive shipping cost) so they can maintain their "cheap" shipping i.e. Magdalena 995 vs 1449.

Don't worry. As soon as collector's can get their hands on your awesome merch, they'll come around. Good luck in your business venture. I truly hope you can get a deal done with sideshow. I'll definitely be a customer if I can order your merch from sideshow or another U.S. retailer.

I think every company should list the restrictions when they announce a new line of statues. Wouldn't be that hard to say "For now this is a European only license but I am working on trying to find a way to sell it in the US, no promises though". It's honest and everyone knows where they stand.

That said, I think for most it's not a big deal as its' not like you took peoples money for deposit and then said "Oh yeah it's a European license only"

it is what it is....

Sorry for the negativity Erick, it certainly sounded like we had no choice but to pay premium amounts to a middle man and w/late notice. As collectors, we just want to collect all your statues, hope you don't mind

Thank you for trying to find ways to sell in the U.S. you have my undivided support whether it works out or not.

Unless the new company can sell in the U.S., I don't think BBTS is an option. XM got into some hot water because they used retailers to sell outside their licensed region. Marvel came down on XM pretty hard because of that. It looks like the only safe way to sell merch here is going through sideshow for distribution. I'm ok with that. So long as I don't have to pay a middle man markup and outrageous shipping rates, I have no problem buying from sideshow. They already sell merch from companies like Prime 1, Iron Studios, and Tweeterhead. Why not add Sosa's new company to the list?
