This one was £45, and when I compare it to the likes of Hedonismbot, which wasn't much different in terms of quality and was more like £30 at release, I find a 50% increase over 2 and a bit years a little hard to stomach.
Yes, difficult to stomach, but I'm sure the post BREXIT exchange rate is mostly responsible for the price hike.

Anyone? Wanting to know whether a GID Mysterion is guranteed? I'm splitting a case with a friend.

I see. I wonder what the layouts are? You reckon they are similar to the 'Faces of Cartman' series; in other words, very similar?

Hi I bought a sealed FBW case off eBay in the states and there wasn't a GID Mysterion in it, so I had to purchase it separately, so no it's not guaranteed.

Do you happen to remember the layout? If you do, posting it would be great. I need to know roughly what we'll be able to get between us.

I just found a six inch glow in the dark Mysterion at Best Buy. When did those get put out? And is there also a glow-in-the-dark 6-inch coon somewhere?

They release the GID same time they did that three pack for Coon, Professor and Mysterion as well. I have been debating picking up as I have not snagged my coon/mysterion yet from the small, and I have the GID chaos sooo

I haven't seen a GID coon though, but could be closer to the fractured game release in October now.

I just might pick up the 7 inch GID mysterious. It is supposed to be a BBY exclusive. And it is on sale for $37.99

It's been a shame to see this forum become so quiet over the past 2 years or so... when you guys started posting again over past couple of weeks, it was refreshing, but I know it will fizzle out in a few days.

I only collect the licensed figures. South Park Series 1 was the thing that first got me into KR. I know a lot of the oldschool KR people don't like the licensed stuff, but it's a bit silly considering that the licensed figures probably keep the company alive... anyway, that said, I've been thinking over the past few weeks about creating a KidRobot discussion group on FB, purely for the licensed figure collectors. Would anyone be interested in joining? There's already a KR Buy Sell Trade Group, but this group would be purely aimed at licensed figures, and no sales. Effectively, it will act as a replacement for what we do on the forums, plus, it's more dynamic, allowing us to share a lot more info on upcoming releases, post photos more easily, and not have to operate around this outdated, clunky format.

I've had good times chatting on this forum, but I think it's time to move on...

Feel the same way, 1.5 year ago there was so many posts to the point now if i wonder if another site has come up for the vinyl hobby front. I also collect prints as well, and the energy on espresso bean forum is crazy, and where the majority of time is spent (well forum time :O).

I don't use FB but the overall idea is a great one to hopefully get the energy back into this space.

Considering there's so much history here and it's much less toxic than Facebook, how about leading new collectors here from Facebook by linking the forums on FB? ;)

I think I'm going to start doing that on the regular. 8)

Had a good chat with Noel this morning. He filled me in on your plans with regards to the forums; I'm fully on board. My suggestion of a FB group was purely to keep the community alive. I was just afraid, given consistent decline in forum participation over the past few years, that people would abandon ship (although I think many have). FB seemed to me a more logical step in order to keep the community alive.

Hopefully you can deliver. I'll support you all the way, and I'm sure most people here will. I think the most important thing is to expose the higher ups at Kidrobot to forum feedback... this forum is effectively free market research for KR; they'd be stupid not to take advantage. I get the impression KR is a little to corporate and sterile to bother listening to its customers...
