Not my favorite but would have dropped $250. Why not give a heads up on the drop? :(

Sure. Just not what Im used to since hes been releasing prints. Usually 2 or 3 surprise holiday drops per year and the rest announced.

It's a marketing ploy. Unannounced makes it seem more special. that's my impression, at least.

So special, people had a difficult time to pull themselves out of this purchase. Lots of "not sure why I bought this" it seems. It's that feeling of being at the right place at the right time, it's hard to pass on that whenever that comes, whatever that brings.

Maybe this would be true if MBW didn't sell out every release within a few minutes.

Pretty big assumption with maybe 10 people on EB saying that.
And 500 sold. Don't know about your math, but that % is not "lots" in my book.

If on average 1 people say that, 10 still is 10 times more than usual which is gigantic, statistically speaking. Doing maths with the sample, not the whole population Einstein.

lends itself to more impulse purchases, or i would think it would.

Who'd have thought language would be the barrier that'd refrain you from understanding a simple explanation, huh?

Your explanation was so horribly worded, it made no sense.
Figured maybe you were a frog living in Canada, thus the problem.

If you are trying to infer that on average 10 people don't anti-hype MBW, you are so wrong it's not funny. Usually it's more than 10, so this release for example actually did pretty well.
