Seems more likely that they found one in the warehouse. If they were making them in batches, the waitlist would still be open.

The conversion message didn't say EX or CE ...so I immediately thought the EX. I guess we know where my brain is with this TOT MAQ.

Still tho ...after such a long time a WL conversion now is totally a surprise.

Yeah, I sure do. This piece did pretty much exactly what I thought it would. Upon initial release, it skyrocketed in the aftermarket. Then, after awhile, the price dropped to a reasonable amount. Flippers made a killing if they sold quickly. Now, it's much more a buyer's market.

Good Luck on that!

I would never Sell my Thanos to any of you for less then 5k and thats how amazing he is...

Anyone on Ebay selling theres for less is a dumb scalper that will have karma hit them hard for screwing up the after market by selling them a lot less and only reason prices come down is because theirs too many dummies on the scalper bandwagon saturating the after market.

There is nothing you can do to make it go down further is because some that have the hovering foot the factory did not do the best gluing job when assembling these big statues therefore; the hovered foot is due to the factory not gluing his Kilt on correctly making it push up slightly more.

My suggestion since you can’t really fix that gap by pushing it down is you could do this if you have some art skills is make a custom Spiderman mask or a daredevil mask or buy one and slide it underneath the gap to make it look like Thanos is resting his foot stepping on the mask. The gap space will be filled with the mask as well as make your piece unique.

I think Thanos stepping on a 1/4 Spider man mask would look cool to fill the foot gap... I hope you find a solution that will make you happy. Good Luck!

If you can do it, pick up only. Shipping will be a lot and I would be afraid of rough handling. If you ordered from SS you at least have the comfort of knowing if it arrived damage you can get your money back

Smart. The EX prices are dropping and they made a boatload of REGs. You being an international collector, buying this in the aftermarket is a wise move.

Still waiting to see SS release a light blue comic repaint on this thing. Maybe a new portrait for the comic repaint version? It's a easy money grab and people will buy it since he's still selling well. If they do it the first would drop a few hundred more making it easier to obtain, maybe even under retail down the road. Maybe for spook?
