Funko flippers don't know what they are doing. You can be certain of canceled orders that sold for sub-200.

First I Bought 2 on Ebay before drop ,
Then Got in quick, but site hung on the Captcha,captcha dang, gone

Then both cancel because they say ebay cancelled their purchase ,
So just bought another at $250
This is a popular print no doubt

The Ebay flipper I bought from boasted that he sucessfully scored 4 prints !
So, If you have one bot, why not have many bots ! .... Thats the future i guess

I noticed the server acting really weird when testing checkout prior to drop. And I think thats what Shep and lots of people dont really seem to understand on bots. The software will hammer through a proxy server until purchase is made. Slim to no mistakes made. And you can multithread with multiple names/addresses/IP addresses, credit cards all in one screen. A person will, like a lot this morning, start getting stuck on captcha loops, mistakingly refreshing the shipping page because its taking too long, and one thing that I'm not sure was common across the board, but every page on checkout blinked/refreshed on every step of the process.

This mistake worked for me. I watched that circle spin for a couple of seconds and said drymount it, refreshed, the page loaded right away and I moved thru checkout.

Changes have made it virtually impossible for me to score without a bot, used to score with ease.

Do they realize the only people who score on redrops are bots that sit and wait?

That said I bought a few for under 240 on ebay. in for long game.

Lol, I did my research to see what we're all competing against. Its honestly too much hassle to buy and setup those things. I miss 1 in 50 ish manual drops (today's seemed easy unless i was in an oversell batch, if there was one), so no need to go through that trouble. Usually for "bigger" drops like these I just need to make sure I'm doing this at work where we have 1ms ping. But yeah, having to go through all the possible hiccups prior to drop is best way to prepare on these

Wonder why it was printed as a lithograph instead of silkscreen

It's a screenprint.

Are you just referring to the size?
