    No luck. Looks like I need to cancel and find it somewhere else...

    Didn't something similar happen with NewAge Skyfire? And that they issued a coupon to be applied with him?

    That seems to be the intent, though you never know when reality will interfere with intent.

    That’s the plan I believe but Soundblaster was supposedly due in May and that’s looking like it’s going to start shipping early June so I wouldn’t be surprised if Jester starts shipping early August instead

    "Other issues" being its sold out everywhere else.

    I've already paid but ill likely hold off paying the next one so quick. This keeps up, i have no problem canceling preorders and finding the best price on stuff at release.

    They have me with that non refundable deposit but it will make me just stop pre-ordering Fanstoys through them. They aren't selling out like crazy anymore so far less pressure to commit.

    They returned my "non-refundable" in points, but maybe I got lucky and they overlooked the non-refundable part.

    Yeah, they had a coupon to knock the price down so they could technically be listing it at full retail. Also with FT Powerglide, they had the stupid price at first and like a week or two later they put it on sale and refunded everyone the difference.

    I still won't buy new FT from ShowZ because iif stuff like this and it happens pretty frequently. Stick with BBB or TFS Express for Fans Toys

    There is a bit of a problem with BBB, though, that their shipping costs are wildly high for big bots. Of course also depending a little on where in the world everyone lives. Otherwise BBB is a really pleasant online store to do business with.

    BBB’s price is excellent. Especially if you have points to help. Extra savings.

    But the two shipping options suck for this figure. $30 and $50? Sheesh. Still ends up cheaper than anyone else, but still.

    I'm seeing $38 for standard shipping plus $135 balance and $10 deposit. It's better but I really wasn't expecting this release to be so hi. I passed on this one at BBB and went with TFS Express so we'll see what happens.

    Ooh good point. The whole balance thing and despot (?) confused me a bit. I think I’m going to pass on this release in general, but hopefully there will be a few leftovers on the overseas shops once he drops and we can all get a better idea who ends up being the cheapest after shipping.

    How much was he shipped from TF Express?

    I can't calculate shipping right now since it is still listed as sold out, once it's incoming I can. I can't even go back to my Acoustic Wave order to get a ballpark price because I combined shipping with other stuff and it was late in the year when they used to switch to only premium shipping so that order had $78 for shipping

    Yeah, I know area makes a difference but @Honesty and I are in the US

    I asked about price matching through contact on my order as well, and got the same answer.

    Still, they said "at this moment," so we shall see, tho I expect nothing to change.
