  1. https://www.waylandgames.co.uk/the-guild/65955-brutal-fate It has apparently hit at least some distributors, but seems like demand once again is bigger than supply...
  2. Because these where pre-releases during GenCon... Also, eBay says game stores have started to receive at least some of the books...
  3. We've seen renders suggesting they have designed a lot already. The issue is probably how much capital to sink into molds, as that gets expensive fast. I'm struggling to buy as many wyrdscapes building as I want due to the price tag, but man are the ones I've got awesome. Really wish they could release the whole tableworth, but I'd probably take a few years to complete a set...
  4. No offence, but I hope you're the idiot and someone can explain how; will be putting these together sometimes this week, and I've been putting them off so far... 😉
  5. https://www.waylandgames.co.uk/temple-of-ro-kan/6624-fisherman-of-ro-kan https://www.waylandgames.co.uk/bushido/6629-hisao https://www.waylandgames.co.uk/bushido/6534-waku-soul-collector Just some examples...
  6. Don't have anything specific, but have a look at the Bushido range. Should be something similar in that range. Might not be a perfect fit, but should be close enough to avoid confusion...

    New sword for Francisco, new watchers, additional pose for hunters and maybe some more dynamic poses for things like Guardians and I think we're pretty good.

  9. Pretty certain Wyrd is doing all they can to speed up production. The issue was caused by a massive overperformance of M3e, and Wyrd have everything to gain from increasing production rates and sell more product. The issue is probably that there is quite a bit of lead time on injection moulded plastic, but I'm sure they're turning every stone...
  10. Oh, I agree. One would think, just as one would think distributors and stores took into account the drop in sales due to early announcement of M3e when guessing demand. But there are several possible explanations. Maybe some of the stores got stock, but fulfilled (some) preorders before adding it to the stock list? I know the store I ordered from have placed faction packs back on preorder, even though I got mine from them back in July. Maybe some distributors have a policy to try to fulfill some small orders rather than half-fulfill all orders? I don't know, but there is zero chance none were shipped when at least some stores received stock. And as everything is shipped out of Georgia it's pretty far fetched that some choice items where earmarked for London and thus deliberately kept away from the US market...
  11. If you've paid attention to how the distributor system is working this is highly unlikely. Wyrd orders stock based on what distributors pre-order, then ship this out. Distributors pre-order based on the interest from retailers, and distribute amongst their customers. What has happened here is that several distributors have underestimated demand, and tried to get more than their original order. This has caused a lack of product all over the world. The idea that wyrd would secretly stash away some products and only ship them abroad is wildly conspiratorial at best, disingenuous and dishonest at worst. If UK distributors got the set you can be certain that US distributors got it as well. Probably not in high enough numbers, but that's largely the fault of retailers and distributors (Wyrd has stated they ordered way more product for the release than the estimates, but still not enough to satisfy demand). Maybe some retailers (or even many) didn't get stock; either they didn't order enough or early enough or they got screwed by their distributor. Or both. And there you go. If a single retailer got it then it's demonstrably false that the distribution chain in the US did see the product.
  12. Brutal Fate have in fact already reached retailers. If some, or indeed most, retailers have yet to get it that's due to distributors not ordering enough to fulfill demand. It only takes a single retailer to have it in stock to prove it has in fact been sent out... Wayland Games in the UK have 10+ in stock as of writing...
  13. If things are done like in previous sales they don't ship things in order (ie first in-first out). That is because of the huge amounts of orders in a short amount of time, and sorting every order to make sure they are fulfilled chronologically would take a lot of extra time, meaning the orders would take even longer time to get through. I don't know what you're referring to with regards to "cough models", I presume it's some sort of autocorrect issue. I'm sorry you've been unlucky with misspacks. I had a string of unlucky misspacks a few years ago, but very little the last few years. Every time I've had missing parts Wyrd have fixed things very quickly though...
