Sideshow just confirmed, what I said a couple of posts ago is exactly what happened. Won't happen again.

I think it makes sense that Sideshow didn't call up D&L and order thirty more prints. This seems to be a mixup over how they were to handle the APs or whatever. Confusion over the numbering--not a cash grab after a fast sellout. Good news for those on the wait list!

Actually, this won't be good news for the wait list--sounds like Sideshow didn't receive more to sell. The numbering issue was because of the Disney copies.

What is meant by Disney copies? Was the mouse going to sell some to?

Someone made a hando? Wristo?

I thought Sideshow hired Budich there for a second.

On a related note...Sideshow has amazazing customer service.

Thats awesome. Anderson Cooper's "the ridiculist". He Just sided with Alamo with there texting and cell phone policy. If Anderson went the other way he would of lost a fan.

Well, it was either that or talk more about Anthony Weiner. I'll take Alamo and their video any day!

No, every license requires that production samples are sent to the company.

It's better than Sean Hannity going to war against Sesame Street.

HAHA I wish I could have caught what Anderson said.

Although I would not have been surprised with SS doing this. They do that way too often with their statues.

Have the prints been tubed up for months or are the peeps at SS doing this themselves? (I remember Kevin Tong teached them how to do this months ago)

Are the production samples always part of the numbered limited edition run? Or are they marked different?

Point being- What are the chances they trickle into the secondary market?
