I don't know if I am the only one, but I am getting frustrated with the progress on these figures. Chad has been great about updating and answering emails, and I fully support the idea of independent conventions. The fact that a small convention is offering something of its own is exciting. On the other hand, I am disenchanted with this whole process. I realize that most of the holdup seems to be with the manufacturer but it still is starting to get out of hand. When the toys were not available at the convention, it was estimated to be about 8 weeks. We got weekly updates but the figures were not getting completed. Last week was eight weeks, and no figures yet. The update from last Monday from the manufacturer stated that he was going to send the first batch out to Chad last Weds. and a shipment every week after that. I emailed Chad yesterday and he had not received an update nor the figures. I know Chad is trying his best to get this finished. I know the production doesn't rest with him. I also realize the manufacturer has a full time job and is trying to complete these in his spare time. More and more this looks to be an undertaking that neither was prepared for to be as time-consuming as was thought. It's one thing to not be at the con, another to be an 8 week window, but past that with no finished figures or any clear idea of a delivery date is hard to swallow. I love the figure, and I am looking forward to it but there are limits. I hope this experience turns into something that helps future Slagacons be even better with an idea of what to expect and how to expand on that. But at this point, well, I don't know what else to say. I fear this could turn into a cancellation of the project in general. I could also see a few cancellations being requested of Chad. I don't want to cancel but the cost just floating out there does make me think. I want to be reasonable but not have 4 months go by and still no confirmation of a release date or when they will be finished. Just my 2 cents is all, and wondering how the other people who ordered this set feel about the situation.
