    My Unicron statue came in, I've had it a while now. I never got the Magnus bust I originally won, though, and the site's out of stock of them now.

    My Unicron's numbered... but it turned out I got an Artist's Proof, not one from the production run of 2500. Not what was advertised as the prize but I wont complain. :D

    It says artist proof on the bottom and it's numbered 80 out of 200 instead of like 2425 out of 2500.

    I e-mailed them weeks ago about my Magnus bust and never heard back from them. I dont even want the Magnus at this point, a substitution would be fine with me. I just dont want to seem like a dick cause I've already got the grand prize on my desk and here I am making demands for a $35 bust.

    But this is unfair practice at this point. Comicstatues.com willingly held the contest with the site. Supposedly they were shipped out a couple of months ago. Is it too much to ask for for a little information on what happened?

    And what about those of us that haven't gotten anything yet? We didn't win the grand prize (you lucky bastard...)

    Not at all, I want to know what's going on as well. At this point it's completely unprofessional and unacceptable, if they promised to award these prizes the very least they could do is offer an explanation as to why we dont have these busts.

    I think I'd gladly take a Hot Rod or Devastator in apology for not providing Magnus :D

    Sup guys. As you can see, I'm not online much. Just moved to Texas so that has taken a bit of my time and in turn not logged on here to see if everyone received their piece. So, as it seems a few of you have not received your bust. Shoot me a pm with all your info and I'll take care of it. I do know that I don't have any Starscreams. If there is an inventory issue, I'll replace it with something else of your liking. I'll check pm's every couple of days.

    Most of my pieces are AP's so if you get one, don't think it was an error. The ones that are not numbered are AP's as well.
    late,
