I take it you haven't participated in the FAC Sabotage, Seventh Son, Maze Runner Scorch Trials etc......GB's then?When did this invite thing start?
Whiplash was 500 copies, and I got 2 through the Group Buy. I wasn't invited to it. I just signed up when it went live.
Ex Machina was 750 copies, and I got 2 of those as well.
Also, where did the speculation come from that this will be such a low number? I haven't see any comments on FB or anything regarding a print run size. Was that just a completely random comment to throw people into a frenzy?
If you haven't purchased any of those titles, then the chances of making into future invitation only group buys are almost zero.
I passed on those because I didn't need them. If i got them, I'd be stuck with them as FilmArena are coming down on people who resell. So I would just be getting them to trade.
I passed so people who really wanted them would get a copy instead.
It's a flawed system if I am to get penalised in the future for not opting to join those ones. Maybe I was foolish now and should have lapped up all of them when I was given the chance?
It is definitely a flawed system, you shouldn't have to buy a bunch of titles you don't want on the off chance that one you do want may be released in the future.
Couldn't agree more. I have 8 FAC titles now with 4 more on the way. I pick & choose what I'm interested in. I looked on the FilmArena website about applying for the "Still Collectible Number" to get the limited ones. If you skip one title in the FAC line you forfeit your place. Admittedly, I wasn't interested in Seventh Son or The Maze Runner, but would have probably picked up The Last Stand & definitely would have snagged a copy of Ted, but sadly can't. I feel like its a punishment for not buying every single release.
I hope the same doesn't hold true for this title as its one that I really want!
