Because few small companies like to leave money on the table, that Alien Egg Chamber Playset that was so hard to get at Comic-Con has been given a color makeover (black box instead of blue, charcoal-colored base) and is available online for preorder as of this writing with no waiting in line.

I can’t decide if this is a dick move or a fan-friendly gesture. If you lined up purely to try and get one for the resale value, I guess the joke’s on you – resale value will go down even with the color difference. But if you lined up as a fan, I feel bad for you when this version looks just as good.
