again, why isn't every FSSS order sat on then?


motivation for people to get prime? isnt that obvious. ultimatelly shipping isnt free and prime is some pretty fast shipping. amazon is likely just trying to cover the costs.

what?

He's saying that amazon's policy is to sit on orders/purposely delay them. And I can see why they would do that, which is to push people towards prime.

But, if that's the case, then how come EVERY fsss order isn't purposely delayed?

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

didn't read the whole thread, but if anyone out there really wants one of these, you can just get on the e-mail list on newegg... they are NOT selling pre-orders of this thing, so once it's in stock it's gonna be a mad rush for who will put their money where their mouth is, LOL

also, their estimated date for having it in stock is May 18

This prime/FSSS conversation is getting both redundant and just old. Maybe we could move on. There's no hope for conversion!

I've seen documentaries/news pieces about amazon's warehouses and they repeatedly say that their "pickers" (thats what they call the workers that go about the warehouse retrieving the items of your order) have every order picked within hours of the order being placed if the products are in stock, even during the busy holiday season. During that busy season Amazon will usually hire about 15,000 extra seasonal employees to keep up.


Wow. That is a crazy amount of temp workers

FYI - these have been trickling out at Amazon (probably from cancellations). I managed to snag two of them: one Tuesday evening and one at about 6:00am this morning. Keep watching!

HAA.

I grabbed one through amazon when it was first listed, but I'm not sure if I'll keep it yet. I see there are already listings on eBay.. looks like some will sell/are selling for around double the price. That's nuts.

Amazon took the listing down from their website apparently. I can still go to it if I click my order link, but the picture and everything is gone and if you search for it nothing comes up.

According to a new update, they will be shipping these to 2 Brick and Mortar stores in the US, unfortunately they wont announce which ones until they ship them the inventory.

Looks like that's a hand-made replica, not the NECA licensed toy.

Well, mine is supposed to be delivered on Thursday so I'm guessing it will be shipped soon. It hasn't hit the "shipping soon" phase yet though so we'll see.

Yep. I have a thursday delivery date as well with Prime 2 day shipping.

I haven't heard or read about any cancellations yet and AZ is usually pretty good about getting that information out well in advance

I got an e-mail stating it was delayed too which is kind of shitty because on the NECA website it states that orders would be going out to distributers on time.
