At least Ringside didn't even offer Sasha Banks as a preorder since it's a rerelease. They know lots of people would have cancelled their order.
I honestly think it was the result of the post RSF bitching about how irrelevant Tamina is and how the figure did not reflect how much weight she has gained since her first figure (which uses the exact same parts).
The Basic 59 Sasha uses pretty much the same amount of black and silver paint, and the character has blown up in popularity since the figures initial release. It's much better for sales. Cut off the production at a much lower number, make more Sashas and make way more money. Makes sense to me.
I face a true collector-on-a-budget dilemma. I have Legends Slaughter and cannot afford/refuse to pay UK prices for HOF Slaughter. I prefer Elites to Basics 100%, but want a PROPER Slaughter. (I despise the white and blue attire) So tempted to buy this basic and add elbow pads and whistle and ditch the Legends one. I also have a 'one of each guy' rule.
This is a true crossroads!! WHAT TO DO, WHAT TO DO!!!!
Also, Cena has a different head in box than loose. what is this voodoo?
