    Arrived today from Kapow. He is a big, beefy bot. Very chunky and satisfying.

    Glad to hear your copy has arrived from Kapow; I've not even had a dispatch notice yet though so I've contacted them through their website. This particular purchase has seemed to have taken longer than any other I've made from them (since paying the full balance).

    It's not too much to hope that US retailers will get theirs next week right ?

    Had a dispatch email today. Royal mail so not sure if that means they are actually posting it tomorrow or they did so on Friday and didn't email me but either way glad to know it's on the way.

    I preordered in July, it said release date was estimated for September. Just going off from what I've seen recently. When their Helex and Blast Off were initially released in Asia. Both those figures started shipping out stateside like 3 weeks later. I feel like not this week but the following week we'll start seeing orders being fulfilled.

    Seems like they snail mail their bigger bots to US vendors, where there small/average size figures hit the States in a week or so.

    Oh they do. I think my point was it's been 25 days, so that's plenty of time for this bot to reach the US.

    It took an absurd amount of time for Mors to finally get in stock, and then even longer for BBTS to get theirs while everybody else had gotten him in for at least a month beforehand.

    I'd like to think that was a fluke and Tortor will come into stock this week everywhere, including BBTS, but its entirely up to fate. My stuff won't ship until January anyway since I'm holding out for the Kultur re-issue and Optus Plexus.

    Can concur. I'm a bit iffy on the exact amount of days though but was most likely at least 2 weeks.

    Disaster. Mine shipped from psx last month and didnt receive it but checked both tracking numbers n both stated that it was delivered on 26th oct which is a bank holiday here in ireland n no one was here at work.

    Contacted post office but to no avail n waiting for psx to respond. Never happened before, fucking disaster! :(

    Well, if Tortor doesn't come in for payment today, then neither he nor the other two - Not-Vos and Not-Kaon - are likely to be October payments.

    Which is absofreakinglutely fine by me. As I've said before, I likely will not be shipping until January at the earliest and without this $400 drop those three figures represent, I'm actually on budget this month! That, and my trade shows were canceled because of some disease or whatever going around so that freed up that budget so all in all, economically I'm doing alright regardless.

    yeah waiting on TCP which said it’d be a few more weeks. Election ain’t helping matters and after that will be holiday mail traffic.
