That's awesome!

I tried getting my wife to pick me up either the Blue Stars or the Speeder Bike Set for Father's Day and she told me no way in hell...

I just checked out the Action HQ site, it went from this:

to this:

Well this is a good sign & we should be getting an e-mail from them on our orders hopefully this week. Still keeping my fingers crossed on this, better not be a price increase.  >:(

Yeah, guess it's not looking to good according to the site, pushed back.

Well guy's, looks like the deal at Action HQ is SOL. I received a couple of e-mail from them, both e-mails were the same.

Hello Dale
Thank you for your email.

The website shows the kubricks as available, but they are still not in stock on our side.

As these kubricks are exclusives, they are released in Japan, but we are yet to obtain them.

We apologise for the inconvenience caused.

Also, we have a problem to fulfil your order due to the price point at which you placed the order for the kubricks.

We are currently unable to get them at the prices you have purchased them for, and we will likely need to make a refund to you and cancel your order with our sincerest apologies.

Thank you
Best Regards

Yeah, refund my $$$ ya bunch of asswipes because your not getting anymore $$$ for the Kuby's for the insane price hike let alone my business ever again!  >:(

It sucks for all of you that thought you found a bargain, but after everything that happened last year with ToyWiz/BBTS, I can't say I'm surprised that they aren't going to honor the prices/pre-orders.  :-\

I have never seen a pre-order for a limited kubrick item like this work out, but you just know that someone else out there will try (and fail) again in the future...  ::)

Yep, it really sucks, but I kind of always had that in the back of my head that they wouldn't be able to honor all of the pre-orders they received...  Maybe next time ::)

I still have a case of 12 for Series 8 if you are interested.  I had a deal pending but I think it may fall through.

I sent Action HQ an email yesterday and officially cancelled my order for this and the Blue Stars. I seriously doubt they will ever get them and I don't want to pay the rediculous prices they now have. They weren't going to honor the price from January and now you can get it for cheaper on ebay than the prices they have listed now anyway.
