Before I get into this; Full disclosure, I do have an Oculus and Trashin’ Pumpkin on pre-order myself.
There is really no reason for you to try and rewrite what actually happened. It’s a little too fresh in peoples memory. Not shipping out items that are “In Stock” for several months and then try to lie and blame it completely on covid is total bullshit. Furthermore selling product they didn’t actually have on hand to ship, without having it labelled as a backorder or a pre-order or something, is a really scummy thing to do. Even if its in pursuit of funding other projects and trying to keep your business afloat. Which is clearly what happened. I don’t think Megalopolis/PremiumDNA is a scam. I think they pulled some shady business to stay in business and it blew up in their faces. In my opinion the backlash against this company is fully justified, and any influencers who pumped them having to disavow is also justified.
It would be neat if some of the other things they had planned can get released. I was pretty excited to see what they had in store for Clay Fighter, Earthworm Jim, Conkers Bad Fur Day, and Banjo Kazooie. But the damage this company has done to themselves by lying instead of being upfront is going to be a major hurdle to overcome.>>9318338
Also you probably won’t have to pay aftermarket prices. If Battletoads follows a similar pattern to Madballs there will be another BBTS Preorder, and likely some leftover stock to buy after release. I am also kinda just assuming there’s been a lot of cancellations that have made more figures available.
