Well, I screwed around and missed out on Kandor and the base. I checked last week and Kandor said like 162 left so I was in no hurry. Then last Thursday Kandor changed to "out of stock," but the base hadn't yet. I contacted Debbie and she was going to try to locate one. By the time I heard back, the base also said "out of stock."

I contacted Debbie again and she said they were both gone. Maybe I'll happen across a set on eBay some day... I guess I should've grabbed the base and then could've at least bought the city off eBay. Kinda disappointed...

I've learned not to rely on those counters. Grandpa Munster said there was a bunch left an then next thing I saw it was sold out.

But Kandor and the base actually showed the number available on the item/details screen like"162 remaining." I didn't enter 200 and see what number it came back with as a limit. So, I thought it was legit.

I wonder if anyone will ever actually get the base.

I heard they brought them to sdcc that might be why they sold out so fast

All outstanding products will be getting wrapped up in a few months. Just be patient. Kandor base will be done very soon, if not already. I cannot stress enough that Tweeterhead is not trying to cheat anyone. It is a two person operation and sometimes best intentions get derailed by pop up emergencies.

Donít mean to bring you down more but I remember Chad saying in a live stream that the Base and Mr Myxl will be ordered based on order received. Meaning small production run, and if they are anything like the Nevermore clock that means on eBay the prices will be very marked up, thatís if you see one on eBay.

True, but there's not much I can do about it now. I do wish I'd grabbed the base while Debbie was checking on Kandor though. Like I said, it was still available at that time and I could've just gotten the city off ebay. By the time she answered, they'd closed sales on the base too. Oh well.

Maybe someone bought an extra that they don't want. I just thought I was good because of the visible, ever present counter on the page. It was showing 162 even after SDCC.

And I know I had a long time to pick it up, but life happens and sometimes things slip through the cracks. Ha. I'm really only blaming myself, but I'm kinda playing "catch up" with this line.

I never rely on the counter if you want it and have the money buy it as soon as you can. Bought Kandor last year and loved it. And bought the base when I realized how small it was. It will look great on the base next to superman
