First of all - all these people throwing around edition numbers ... they don't know ****. They are guessing. Maybe 600 was an official number for the Toy Sapien store in Japan? Maybe it is world wide? youtubers often say - "I hear this and that is VERY limited" but I think it is often to justify their own purchase to themselves. If it is rare, it is an investment and therefore okay to buy iy. If you just buy it cause you like it ... there is something wrong with you. Again, buy it if you LOVE it. Otherwise don't.
I think it's a strange move on Hot Toys part to limit the release of this, but I guess sometimes it is good to create a hype around a product. I don't know. I am not in marketing.
If you live in Europe (like I do) collecting Hot Toys is very expensive. I suspect Australia is the same. But if you want Marty, SS is your best bet. Toysbuyingagent is sold out and Toyswonderland is CRAZY expensive (I never buy anything from them), so SS is your only option. With shipping and taxes and whatnot, Marty would cost med 435 USD. Thankfully, I have the first one. This HS is not that much better (if at all) and if I want the dog, I'll pick up a third party dog, probably a better looking one too.
For all those outside US who missed out on the first release, I feel for you. It's rough. Let's try to help each other out, so if someone hear something, pass it on.
Yea, I think the 600 number came from Hot Toys when they posted information for the secret base release. But I am sure that is for the initial batch and another batch will release later. I could be wrong, but either way, for those that don’t have it, get it or don’t get it. Up to you and your funds. Good thing is that the V1 will still be out there and available, and to be honest, I think is the better figure and package overall.

It's hard to believe that Hot Toys is going to limit this release. I think that releasing Doc it's just logical that they "rerelease" Marty worldwide. It's easy money.

Welp that’s Hot Toys for ya. They decided to make it an exclusive. Nothing we can do about it. I am treating this release in the same way they did the Exclusive 2.0 Two Face and 2.0 Whiplash. A reissue/update to a figure that released some years ago as a limited run. Just unfortunately this time it is of THE main character. Oh well.

So the Marty fig is only being released through Toy Sapiens in Japan and Sideshow in the States. No one else will get any of the 600?
No chance I would buy though SS, the postal/custom charges are ridiculous, for sending stuff to the UK.
Hi, can you tell me how much is it, i pre ordered frome France...

Justin’s closer look video has sold me on the figure. The head sculpt looks pretty good in the video. I guess it’s going to come down to how I feel about it in hand. It could go either way.

Think this may have been released according to Pop Collectibles Instagram?

Toy Sapiens, the store in Japan that is doing the Retro Sapiens BTTF event, announced maybe around a week ago that it was going to be available for purchase starting the 18th at the store.

Yeah, but ironically they left out something important that was displayed on that very same art: the sunglasses. Man Hot Toys what are you thinking...
Yea, idky they chose that to be the box art. The 2.0 isn’t supposed to be posed like the poster, hence the missing glasses, yet the box art is that design. The 1.0 has the glasses and is meant to be posed like the poster, yet has the better box design for the 2.0 lol.

Someone's already purchased it??? the hair of the v1 is never sit on me (i have it once)... but maybe, because the v.2 hair is more accurate hence it will hard for the glasses to be put on. haha

If you go to the 13 minute mark on the video DjBoogaloo just posted you can see a review and comparison.

V2 was started available today at the Japan Tokyo Toy Sapiens store. Was announced about a week ago that it would be available.

Also yea, I agree. I think if the hair was too thick, you could do the poster pose, which is what the 1.0 figure was meant for.
