Sideshow Toys enigma

In the Sideshow Toys advertising box at the bottom of this page, why do they feature pieces that are long sold out? Makes no sense.

Hi Bob. I think they call it a "waiting list".  And while I agree with you that it doesn't really make much sense, it's the dollar and CENTS that they're hoping to generate by adding your name to their waiting list.  ;)

BTW, the Super Size Creature featured at the bottom of this page is a pre-order item with orders still being taken.

 It's a manipulative corporate Jedi mind trick to entice you to visit their site.  Show them what they want to lure them in, then hope to sell them what you really have.  Wal-fart has been doing this for years, but it seems to have become the norm for most big corporations.

I've been doing that same trick for years! Throw in an attractive looking babe, and put a monster in the same topic, and membership instantly increases by double the normal rate!  ;)

His "other" mate needed it.
