violet isn't a colorway, it's a different sculpt. i heard there would be a new figure available at SDCC (a female one, sort of a counterpart to benny), but whether or not it is violet i don't know.

Thanks Kathie for setting things straight. Too many 'know it all's' here on this site, or individuals that spout off, which can further confuse other people.

No one is a bigger fan of your work than yours truly.

Good old penguin may have been lied to, and I thank you for clearing up any misconceptions while dropping some goodies very soon as well.

Have you decided what exclusive color variations will be sent off to what stores as part of the Scavengers releases in different outlets?

WTF is your problem??

oh and by the way, i was not lied to. i am not a "know it all", and i don't pass on information that is from unreliable people. the date just obviously isn't SDCC anymore.

so LEAVE ME ALONE.

try cardboard spaceship or copro nason gallery if you can't get it at Rivet.

Everyone else play nice <3

sometimes people get unreleased info through friends or retailers or even just speculative rumors-- I don't like to release any info until it has been officially released by the toy company because a lot changes throughout production. Too much can change with overseas factories and I hate to build up any false hype-- do I really need to bring up the infamous JLED labbit drama from SDCC a couple years ago...

Rivet is now sold out of the original edition Benny & Red Bird sets and we only have a few blue edition sets remaining. Thanks for the kind suggestions of Rivet, everyone. :)
