I Had Preordered The 50 Pack Of Droids. Just Wondering When They Will Ship. I Know It Is Suppose To Be January But When?

Its still the middle of January and their site says 1/06, so give it some time. If need be call there free cust. service number in the catalouge or on their site and thye can inform you. They are very helpful.

I preordered from big bad toystore, and my figures have not yet made it to me. I am not sure about the exact date of shipment.

I pre-ordered back in november and got an email saying they were expecting them around the middle of the month.

I always get the same answer from their lovely receptionist- "They aren't in yet, and we don't know when they'll arrive." Then the next day, I'll get an email saying they are "in-stock". (This is what happened with the Wedge exclusive). I did stop by their store before Xmas and saw a display case with the droids in it- but they wouldn't sell them- I'll just have to keep waiting. They do look pretty cool up close and personal- IMHO.

Funny, when I contacted them, the lady laughed at me and said, "Dude, you're just out $80." Then she called me a naughty word.

Let's just say by small chance the droid shipment is cancelled, we won't have to be refunded the $80 because EE never billed our credit cards. Once they come in, that'll be another bill we'll have to pay off.

Adam Pawlus (works at EE.com and writes the Q&A at gh and 16bit.com) said in a Q & A about 3 weeks ago that the Droids were on a slow boat from China.

That means boats steams to the Long Beach or San Diego port, goes through customs and then to EE for them to ship to all the distributors that ordered them (like bbts & wizards and afx...yada yada yada).

Once that is done then off to complete the sales pre orders and then the rest go onto the site to buy for everyone that waited until they are instock to buy them.

(just a guess or my $.02)

or vice versa...preorders then distributors....


See FIN at this link for the Droids on the ship statement.

Yes, there is a word. It's "Backordered". That's the status showing as of today.

I try to please. :)

Since they said "January" as the release date of the sets. We still have 19 days left in this month! They could release them on the 31st for what it's worth!

EE missed the boat on this one. I guess that is the game that you play if you try to get something out for a holiday release. I will be picking these up but not for a little while. I would have loved to have gotten these as a Christmas gift but now it'll just have to be a little gift to myself!

I'm gonna have to make a trip to EE pretty soon. I want to get a couple sets of these. One to open and one to keep carded. Does anybody know if anyone is selling them for less than EE?

Kidhuman

They were an EE exclusive I think, so the answer would be no.

I got mine on order at BBTS

http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=HAS11467&mode=retail

the case price was 290 and after freight and tax was still less than EE (thou I love them so)..

Their set price was $69
http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=HAS11466&mode=retail

I pay tax since I am in Wi but I want to keep it local and EE gets their $$ anyway.

Freight is always packed great and low cost.

I received the EE Droids set this afternoon, along with the 2004 Holiday Jawas gift pack. Also I received the Bounty Hunter 7-pack yesterday from starwarshop.com. So in all, it's been a good weekend. :yes:

Isn't it on their website, or in the confirmation email? It's in an industrial area of NoHo.

My sets were sent out ten days ago and I was just beginning to wonder where they where, then they showed up today. The Droids all turned out looking quite nice and both the sets I received have perfect paint apps. which is always a concern of mine.

You must not have looked too hard. I just clicked help at the top of their main page and the address LBC gave was there as well.

Hmm, no, I clicked on "Contact us" thinking, you know, that they might be smart enough to put all of their contact information there. Why in motherf### would anyone go to "HELP" to find contact and location information? I'll make a note of it on their comment card when I get there.

Thanks for all of your help though! :) I may have time today to get over there to pick up a bunch of droids. :thumbsup:

Overall these little guys are cool. Hasbro failed on a few of the paint apps and for what we paid they should had been better. Other than that they are all very welcome in my collection and I hope there will be another set in the future, but from what Adam says from EE he doesn't think so, because there aren't selling very well.

Thats strange, according to EE's website they say the sets as close to selling out. :confused:

Turbowars
02-01-2006, 10:28 PM
I believe it's a ploy to get people to buy. I hope it's not and they really are selling them. I love that EE is getting these things made. Adam is our only hope. Seriously he's the only SW geek like us that has his foot in the door. Crack that :whip: Adam!!

Uhhh... Who's Adam? Adam West? He loves taffy.

I received my 2 sets today, and I have tio agree with you about the paint apps. Pretty darn sloppy. Still, looking forward to opening them up.

Now, just one request (besides a better paint app): More droids!

There should be an R5 set once they get the new R5 mould out the door. If they did a protocol droids set using that new Threepio mould from ROTS, that would be amazing!!

I really like that they used the new astromech mould for most of the droids. They did well as far as I am concerned. I'm pleased.

-if so, it won't work on me; i'll just wait til these overpriced repaints get reduced to a price more commensurate with their actual worth :greedy:

tim: "anyone that got the case and wants to get rid of a complete set"
-same here; i've been lookin for a few locals to split a bbts case w/me to reduce per-person costs as much as possible (http://forums.sirstevesguide.com/showpost.php?p=426355&postcount=1854) but no one bit; anyone else up for an economical case-split? as link indicates, i'd need 2 sets of each- 1 for myself and 1 for tokyo pal :p

bosh: "R4-E1. I wish I could just get that one"
-if i ever hook up w/a set i may be able to help w/that (http://forums.sirstevesguide.com/showthread.php?p=464298#post464298), but first i need to see these in person to determine which i'd wanna keep & which i won't. i can already tell from webpix i'd like some and would pass on others, so i would part some out, i just don't know which yet :)

aneel: "y** y**"
-why would "you" need censoring? :crazed:
