    Thanks for that Otto.
    They seem to have a lot of stock as you said, with little movement on any of it. Their prices seem quite high though.

    Yes too high i personally think ,i actually asked if i buy two will you give me a discount and there reply was they already dropped the price .eg[prices were superman 3300 dollars and jack sparrow was 2500 dollars]

    Are those AUS dollar prices, or the US equivalent?

    Ouch. Yeah it's not too surprising that these Oz CMs aren't moving.

    You'd be better off using a retailer like FPI or La Cite for Superman then. They'd easily undercut your domestic distributor even after shipping I expect.

    I've heard that "La Cite" name before. What is that, Jet?

    It's short for La Cite des Nuages, a Belgian retailer who many here have used. Here's a link to their English website Chris.
    Karim, Phil or David should be able to provide more details if you need them since they've dealt with them personally.

    La cité des Nuages is the best collectible shop around these parts of Europe, so you can't go wrong. Very nice people and you can always email them with any questions you might have.

    I put together a list of retailers while the CM Superman pre-order was happening. You can find it HERE.
    I could re-check all the distributors and create a new list when I have time if people would find it useful.

    I hadn't seen that thread. Nice one, Jet. I guess in the US it's CM or bust. Makes sense I suppose, but options would be nice.
    Nice to know they answer emails. CM has been less than impressive for me. I've sent two emails with questions and got no response so far. Maybe they're just slow and will get to me eventually. That was the main reason I figured I'd call them soon. Hopefully, they'll return my call.

    None in stock at FPI. Bummer. I'm starting to think CM is some kind of inside joke I'm not in on and they don't actually exist. The pictures and videos are convincing, but I've never seen one in person and none of the ones I've tried to get are available. Well, Aragorn is suppose to be here tomorrow, so I'll see if I get a very expensive empty box or an actual statue. I'll have my doubts until I see one before me.

    The last piece they sold through domestic retailers was the Predator a few years back. Since then CM have handled all sales in the US themselves.

    I think calling them is the way to go if you live in the USA. Mention CBD too. ;)

    I'm sure it will be fine Chris.
    Yes the waiting list for CMs can take quite a while. That's why pre-ordering is normally the best route as they're nearly always fulfilled in the first batch.

    Yeah, I can definitely see why pre ordering is a good idea. If these were a few hundred, I could do that without worry, but at these ranges, I can't count having the money when it's ready. CM doesn't take deposits, but is there any fee if you cancel your order?

    No fee if you cancel. Also there's normally around a four or five month wait from the date of the pre-orders going live to shipping and charging of cards. Longer if you happen to live outside the USA. Not too shabby. :)

    It's very reasonable set up to be sure. It just doesn't work for me. I'll have to find a different way to collect these.
