    Actually, as they're based in Spain, and not supposed to be shipping out until this week / next week, that would be about right for what we heard from TFSource.

    Remember, it takes a little longer to reach Europe.

    I can reorder then and don't have to worry about being charged for a while.

    So is that an update for Euro release? So this doesn't effect NA release dates right?

    I like how Fansproject was so optimistic that they posted a June 31st release date on June 30th, and then let it pass without comment. That takes some reasonably big balls.

    In fact, now that I think about it, I consider it a blatant attempt to drive preorders up. They're lucky they make some badass toys.

    Well, this totally ruins the possibility of getting them before school starts.

    Whatever. It'll be worth it.

    You've got to be kidding me...at least this will maybe give me more time to get money for the other two.

    The delay on these might not have anything to do with Fansproject. It might be the manufacturer. FPJ might not have priority in the manufacturing plant due to the small numbers they produce.

    They can still post on their website "hey guys, it's going to be a few more weeks. Sorry about that complete lie about them being out June 31." I'm not bothered by the delay: those happen. I'm annoyed that FP seems to feel they don't have to even acknowledge their release date has passed.

    June *31* doesn't exist, so if they indeed said that, it'd have to be a typo or mistake.

    Yes, a simple update, release date change notification on the FP blog or Coresite would be nice. Not the end of the world and good for those who need time to save.
