Thanks Jeff, I didn't realize that we had another month to wait...  Then I'll have more time to save those pennies...

So this series comes out in a few weeks.  Did anyone order from overseas, pre-order from HLJ or BBTS, or are most of you waiting for ebay?  Just wondering if anyone has gotten any buzz about a potential ship date for these...

Michael,  I ordered it from HLJ.  No notification yet.

Also note that this series is an April 2009 release & HLJ is stating a Dec release. I'm sure that is wrong.

**** it! Order placed, a MC done for me. Better be ******* factory sealed.  :-X

Notification from HLJ will be when they are instock & ready to ship, I got my confirmation e-mail shorty after I placed my order.  8)

I've got a guy that I've purchased from before that said he'd sell me an unopened Master Case. I'm looking to keep 2 boxes of 12 and looking for one or two people interested in sharing this case. Obviously these days no chases are ever guaranteed but I will promise to randomly shuffle these boxes before I open any of them. I am Sith has agreed to supervise the shuffling.  Based on the price I'm getting quoted, I could sell a Box of 12 for $135 shipped to anywhere in North America.

If you are interested, send me a PM.

WTF?

I was checking my e-mail and I noticed I had an e-mail from HLJ.  I got excited until I read it...   My Series 10 order has been cancelled!   >:(

I just checked the HLJ website and yep, the listing has been changed to "Order Stop" meaning they have oversold S10 based on how much they are expecting from the manufacturer.

I had placed an order for 8x boxes of Series 10 back in January.  Now I'm screwed...  Anyone else who ordered from HLJ get a cancel notice or was it just me?  Maybe I got picked because I ordered so many boxes?  Easier to piss of the 8x box guy than eight 1x box guys.   :-\


Time to run around and see if I can find something else...

Wow, that sucks Jeff.  Any chance they are just playing an April Fool's joke on you?   :-\

Nope, no e-mail on my end from HLJ. That really sucks jeff.  :-\

Maybe give NCSX a try, they have Series 10 up for preorder for $125.90 for a box of 12. Just a thought.

PM replied Jeff.

If anyone is still looking for a Box of 12, I'm still hoping to try and order the MC.

I got an e-mail from one of my sources and they passed along the same ratios mentioned earlier in the thread...

Ratio: 4/12  Clone Trooper
Ratio: 3/12  Darth Vader
Ratio: 2/12  General Grievous
Ratio: 1/12  Anakin Skywalker
Ratio: 1/12  Darth Sidous
Ratio: 1/12  Tarfful

It's still not "officially" confirmed (I haven't see anyone report any open boxes yet), but it's looking like this ratio could be the real deal...

I really think that it's overkill to have Vader 3:12 with this series when they've already released a Vader in Series 4.  I would have much rather had a Tarfful in that ratio for a little Wookie army building/customizing...  Definitely glad to have the extra clones though.  I want to make a few customs of those as well.

Looks like a couple more weeks at HLJ.

Note: This item has not yet been released by the manufacturer but we expect it on or about May 7. We have already taken all the orders we expect to be able to fill. No further orders will be accepted until supplies are confirmed when the product is released.

No update on the NCSX site.  They still show a ship date 'on or around April 25, 2009', which to me translates into 'We'll ship it whenever we get it'...

Blister has it listed as around 2009/5.

Amazon JP lists 2009/5/25.

cdjapan.co.jp 2009/05/05.

Even tho it's getting closer, it's still a long wait.

Getting longer by the looks of it. HLJ had changed the date to May 9th on Friday & now it's showing May 11th.  ::)
