Why doesn't the US have codes for individual models? The female witchhuntress has 1 code for all 3 poses in the US and in the UK the poses are coded individually? WTF??? :wtf:

I'd assume the single code is for a random blister like you get in a retail shop, while in the UK we can pick the body we like.

some of the UK models don't have codes either as they aren't for sale as seperate bitz

Everyone uses the same type of coding system. Sometimes it just takes longer to update in some areas than others. I used to be a GW Troll for Canada and at the time we were pretty behind with the coding updates.

as far as i know all the models are produced in the UK, so it is easier to custom order things from the shop to some degree, where the US/can shops just get their basic shipments and a few asides, forcing them to group up similiar items, such as different poses for the same units
peeves me too living in Canada, but i just ebay everything. id honestly consider buying some of the overpriced stuff they have now, if i could be surgical with my orders (i could use some SW accessory sprues, just not for $10cn a pop)
