$119. 12 hours later its $149

What the deuce, man? What happened to:

A WORD OF
WARNING:

There is only ever
going to be one print
run of this great game,
so when stocks run
out they won't be
replenished!

I'd like to know where Thoughthammer is getting restock from.

Whoa! I'm glad I ordered mine for $99 yesterday. I guess demand is driving the price up.

It's probably not another printing, rather some retail stores may have gotten more than they could sell (I know, seems strange to me too, but I've seen posts that said some stores still had many copies on the shelves) and they returned/are returning them to the distributors. Thoughthammer is probably expecting to get some of the returns as a restock.

Probably just buying and redistributing what is already out there. I was in a shop recently that still had 10 copies on the floor.

The distribution problems will sort themselves out eventually. And that's when prices will likely surge upward for awhile. At least until the hype or rather impulsive buyer vocalizations dies down.

By all accounts, the game is under-subscribed in some areas, and over-subscribed in others. This is the distribution chain catching up.

I tossed an inquiring note on Facebook to Thoughthammer where they announced it.

Let see what they say.

I think the price also includes shipping. I normally order from them periodically and noticed that there was no shipping charge for this item.

Looks like they lowered their free shipping mark from $150 to $100 recently. That's cool.

Holy crap! I'd better order 6 before they go to $249

Edit: I just realized this whole Space Hulk phenomena is better than TV these days. For me anyway.

Who killed J.R.?

Who killed Kenny?

Will Ross ever shag Rachael?

Whats happening with Space Hulk?

Response from TH on FB:

"Pete, one of our distributors called us and said he had some more stock "magically" appear. He wouldn't give any more details and we didn't press for any ;-) BTW, we are almost sold through what we were able to snag from them so take Pete's message into account."

I guess that makes them magically delicious.

Our store, BLUE MOON GAMES, has several copies left.

The price: $99 + tax/shipping.

We are a small store, so we cannot compete with discounted shipping and we are required to charge sales tax on all purchases. So it may not be the best deal, but they are available. Our store is located in the Indianapolis area.

If you are looking for a copy either PM me or call the store: (317) 831-2630 ask for Nate.


Thanks for posting.

Does Thoughthammer scalp games like this often?

Isn't scalping a bit harsh of a term in this case? If Thoughthammer were 'scalping' they certainly wouldn't be selling them on their site for $149. Instead they would be posting them on Ebay to gain maximum profit (i.e. 'scalping').

Agreed. I found it at a FLGS for $99.00 and it was ten dollars off of that reg. price. I was stoked and snatched it up. The pricing on this game is a bit ridiculous.

I have done business with TH twice and they were excellent but something seems a bit dodgy about this. . Having a bunch of copies turning up and then selling them at a significant mark-up seems strange. Maybe when they saw how fast they were selling they just chucked a few cartoons out back and began planning "operation restock".

Marking a game up 50% its current shelf price I think drifts into the scalping territory a little or alot depending on ones outlook. 20-25% and most would go "eh" and shell out for the chance. But at +50% for these "mysteriously appearing" boxes seems a little off somehow no matter how you spin doctor it.

Seen this stunt pulled with other types of hobby shops with the same sort of wording. This though is a first for hearing of this tied to Thoughthammer which seemed to have a better than average reputation. Or maybee I just missed the warnings.

Well see what this turns out to be soon enough.
