Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

agree with both above. I've got a tentative deal for one at a good price, but let's see if the reseller comes through (more like "gives in" to my low offer LOL!!). I don't think these are moving very fast at the prices they were asking... we'll see.

These will all find a home but IMO XM needs to limit these pieces to 1 per "customer" (if that's what you want to call them LOL!!) to prevent this kind of mass hoarding.
They would find a way.
Upside is we have great companies so hopefully if XMs current or maybe even future Cable doesn't work out, another one might fill that void.
I'm not saying it doesn't suck spheres that there are these and other difficulties in the statue game. I've just accepted there are sharks in every hobby. Crap. Statues are one thing but try being a guitar guy too!! That gets even nuttier.

I collect baseball cards as well and the same thing happens in that hobby. People will buy cases of hobby boxes hoping to get rare cards that everyone wants and then they sell them for ridiculous prices. Happens in every hobby unfortunately

Big Boy Toys! Gotta live.

I've always thought about getting into pocket watches. Something about em that draws my attention. It's odd because I am not a watch wearer at all. I tell time by the position off the moon/sun, just like Kramer.

I'm not sure that its price will drop because it is exclusive xm.
I have it under the eyes at this moment and it is an absolute perfection.
This statue will be difficult to match !!!
It is a grail that will gain in value in the years to come

I don't think it will get cheap...but I think because of ES of 999...you will be able to find one around the $1500 mark. Granted...when people start seeing all the XMen / mutants XM has in the works...maybe Cable will rise in price. I expect someone major will be showing up very, very soon. It will be a...

ITS ABOUT GOSHDAMN TIME type of reaction too!

Characters like Cable & Venom to name a couple I doubt you'll see super cheap. Words out on them and how good they are. There will always be that story of guy scoring one for some stupid cheap price but I don't think I'd want to wait on this .

Magneto hasn't dropped either will Cable
