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

Worrying about missing out on a piece by not pre-ordering sure does not give me inner peace.

FOMO is a terrible lifestyle (IMO)

That isn't an accurate application of that term.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Makes sense to me. You fear that you will miss out on a statue so you preorder it even though you know it could encounter endless delays.

Shows you don't understand the term either.

I guess I am just dense.

If it is absolutely a item you need in your collection then I suppose going the pre order route would ensure you can add it to your collection at retail price instead of paying a "flipper" price on Ebay.

I think the female bust was like 1200 bucks new and flippers are charging 5000 for it now. Its disgusting IMHO

Disgusting? How so? The secondary market price can only be as high as people will pay. I have the female bust. I pre ordered day 1 and waited almost two years to get one. I will never sell this piece because it is amazing, but if I ever did if you think I should just offer it up at retail price after what I went through to get one then you are out of your mind.

I was speaking specifically about flippers.

People who buy and resell almost immediately after a product's sold out release. PO with resale in mind.

I would say the collectors here on the forum are true collectors and only buy pieces for their collection.
Sure, if money gets tight or a newer better version of something is released or you buy a piece and just don't feel it once in hand then sell it at current market price.

That price however would be most accurately determined by listing it at retail price plus say 10% for your out of pocket pre order time and expense as an auction and letting the actual market drive the final selling price. But just listing an item at 4 times retail is insane, but hey, every man for himself and to each their own. IMO

Secondary market inflated prices sure made the manufacturers take notice and think "holy crap we could be charging a lot more"

And now we have PF statues over 1k and edition sizes of 2,500.

But hey, what do I know, I am out of my mind
