Violence Toy Offers Gorelords Master Sets!

Hey everyone!  Welcome back!  I just have some quick product news, and maybe a little thought on it, so let's get right into it.

Purveyor of the finest mutant and cannibal death-fighters in mini-figure form, Violence Toy is back with a little update on their Gorelords toy line.

They had first released their Gorelords in a three-pack of either a muscle flesh tone or a random selection of the other colors they had available.  While fans and collectors jumped all over these, looking to collect a master set, there was some speculation and some math crunching as to how much it would actually cost to accomplish this at essentially twelve whacks per blister.

Now the wait is over and you can now make your one-and-done purchase and grab a whole master set of your own for $320 plus ship.  For those who haven't jumped on the Gorelords yet, now is a perfect time to grab every character in every colorway without much fuss, but if you have already plopped down money on a good handful of blisters already, this is probably something of an agitation.

Keshi collectors are programmed to buy quick.  We know things sell out very quickly, and if we really want something, we have to be there on day one and grab what we can afford.  It's a risky move, and in this case it sort of reflects that, however it's also a damned if you do damned if you don't scenario for Violence Toy as well, who may see some backlash from introducing this sale after the initial launch.  But what's the right course of action?  Sure, fans wanted it, but how was Violence Toy supposed to know how many?  And further more, how would they know Gorelords would hit with collectors at all?  I feel it might be one of those things where you test the market out first, start small, and react to the needs of our customers.  I think this is a great way to do so.  I just hope it doesn't burn too many people that have already invested a lot in their own master set.
