That's because the Code 3 MF had a high production number and when it came out Code 3 wasn't famous yet. That's why they have a lot left in their warehouse.
But now, Code 3 ships have a lower production number and they're quite well known. They have no problem selling out their ships now. That's why I prefer to order now and order direct from Code 3 themselves
Received Vader's TIE (Signature Edition) from Code 3 today. Number 004/500. James Earl Jones' signature, Death Star diorama base and damaged wing. Makes a nice companion piece to the regular version which I received in February.
