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.  >:(

I'm right there with you Dale.  I haven't heard a thing yet, and I agree that there shouldn't be a price increase on these either.  The b.s. reason they gave you in that e-mail doesn't make sense when you consider that they raised the price in less than 24 hours the first day of the pre-order.  I'll fight it as much as I can, but if they won't honor the price they originally quoted us, I'm not going to get these...  Not when Series 9 is around the corner and I need the extra money to help pay for my MC...

Well it looks like they adjusted their prices quickly, $99 for the snowtrooper and $169 for the maul.  :P

They adjusted again... $149.95 for the Blue Stars & $199.95 for Maul. Are they ******* kidding!

If they end up getting them and wanting to charge me that much I think I'm going to pass and wait for ebay. The price jump on them on that site has been rediculous.

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!  >:(

That sucks, big time. That is no way to run a business- if you take an order and get the product, you fill the order (in the order they were received, not based on price paid). You paid the asking price at the time of the order, if they made a mistake, they should deal with it on their end.
