Missed the drop. Kinda sucks when you're in the opposite time zone from the US and it happens at 3 A.M. in the morning here haha. And I was up actually until about 1 AM for several days trying to get in on this. Congratulations on everyone who scored one!
Each subsequent run should be available for longer, so your chances can only get better with time.
Maybe they would be willing to release a few hundred or more, at a more convenient time for people on the other side of the globe. If market demand is their goal, it would make sense to cater to all of that market.
Hey, thanks for the message Albatross. To be honest I only had 2 exclusive targets this year, the Purple Cruwear and this. I'm not one of the hardcore PM2 collectors who have to have every version; I only have 2 PMs including the Cruwear but all are exclusives. I was up for several nights since the announcement, hoping and praying that on my watch it would drop. Got the DLT one despite the extremely stressful server crashes because I prepared for the exact date and time of the drop.
Unfortunately this drop was not meant to be for now. Can't blame retailers for the timing of the drop, more of an unfortunate circumstance of being a collector on the other side of the globe. I can understand that they did it to prevent flippers from making it into another REC Para 3. It just sucks that despite giving it your best holding out for it, still it wasn't meant to.
That there will be another drop is a comfort for most of us who weren't able to score on this. I just hope and pray that they will make it so that it will be also accessible to foreign customers.
Once again, this is not me being salty at all, just musing on the travails of being a non-US collector. Congratulations to those who got one, and hope to be in on the succeeding drops.
