Well, I hope the sales are good on this. Really want to get a new AKrew going. New Tommy and the gang would be dope.

I totally agree!

Edit: I just ordered a Mean Essene JC, so I did my part to make it happen...

I don't have the numbers.

Biggest difference with the first threeA Tomorrow King sale on Bambaland back in December 2008 is the fact mostly all TKs were sold to forum members.
Now 12 years later Asia is a huge market for these kind of toys while the rest of the world seems mostly Disneyfied.

It's difficult because you guys don't see the numbers coming in between the web store and the Taobao and assumptions run wild, especially in the facebook group.

Sales have far exceeded expectations and we're hitting numbers we didn't think we'd hit this soon. It is looking far more likely that we'll have to pull the sale down a lot quicker than we had anticipated because there is a capacity limit in order to ship within a certain timeframe.

We've also increased the amount available for the first batch, so a second batch may not be necessary at all. We're going to assess on the 9th and go from there.

In regards to the global retail decision – that all comes down to the wholesale rate and MOQ (minimum order quantity) required just don't calculate out in a way that benefits retailers. Then you have to throw in taxes and retailers pay for freight shipping. Just doesn't make any financial sense for any store outside of China and parts of Asia to carry at this time.

Well that's a positive, glad it's been a success this far

Can you disclose which version seems to be more popular?

Mean Essene has sold slightly more than Resurrecter

I don't understand why my computer keeps logging me out? I thought no one had been posting anything as I wasn't receiving notifications, then I randomly popped back in to see all these new posts. I was glad to be able to score both versions this time around as to thankfully having extra money in my account and I'm a completist when it comes to this JC line. So glad to hear how well this sale has gone.

Hey Gregory, is the 1/3 scale JC dead in the water? Will that 1/3 scale line come back in the Underverse?

1/3rd male body had too many issues and needed to be completely re-engineered, so it was too costly to produce back then and with prices as they are now that'd most likely end up being a $1000 to $1500+ figure + shipping

Ash wants to do 1/3rd with UV, but I'm personally skeptical if there's a market for it

Thanks for that info Gregory!
I was personally looking forward to a 1/3 JC, but knowing that price range has made me realize that it would definitely not be in the cards for me. Sad

How the fuck are you guys deciding which version to get? I cannot make up my goddamn mind!

I love how gritty and pissed off Mean Essence looks, with the darker tones and shadowy style...But also really dig the pop of color Resurrecter sports with his blonde locks and orange shorts/kicks.

Only 1 is in the cards, I think I’m leaning Resurrecter but don’t feel sure enough to pull the trigger...maybe I should flip a coin. Gah!

Thankfully I didn't have to make that decision, but yes, those are the 2 options to go for, dark and shadowy or blonde with that orange pop. I don't think it would be as difficult to make that choice if the figure came alone without the cross and was in the $160-180 shipped price range, but I believe if you were to flip a coin you couldn't loose either way.

List the pros and cons of each.  Maybe that will help you decide or not.

I went for Resurrecter simple because Meany wasn’t mean, dark and gritty enough for me.
If there was a Mauro colorway with monochrome black clothes and bandages the choice would be different. (Or I would see if I could get both.)
So I got the Resurrecter and hope (wait) for a Dark version later.

Expand the Adventure Kartel first.

I miss the "inky" colorway. I don't care much for the black figures like obsidian TK, but the grey-blue faded tattoo color was gorgeous. I hope that makes a comeback someday as Mauro JC is still my all time fave.

Agreed, favourite first gen JC.
Always regretted SGR JC never saw a Mauro/Inky colorway.
When I finally realised it would never be released I had to find a regular SGR JC on the aftermarket.

Thanks Gregory. Are orders still trickling in? I'm grateful to see this new way of ordering, as an older collector I can't sit at a computer refreshing for hours anymore.

Just came in the side door after the party is over to say, "JC came out looking master-level good!!"  Love all the progression for sure.

In the end, I would've gone for Resurrecter but didn't pull the trigger. Had the red shorts been on Meany then maybe,. . still loved the treatment on both but I'm in that mode of having to love every single centimeter of it for that price.
For my tastes, the repetitive "JC" all over the place seemed out of character... It's like, we already know it's JC . . . maybe on the back of the poncho, but yeah, just personal taste. I also was hoping he was going to come out heavily tatted pver his previous form. Time has passed, he's become more gritty, doesn't seem like the type to go for the laser-removal on his back piece. Wink
Anyhow, as with anything Ash produces... hopeful for more versions later and we'll see where it goes. Congrats to UV and the UV team for the success; very very very happy to hear the positive sales.
For all of you that were able to pull the trigger, you all got a stunner of a fig !
