Just received word from Miniature Market that my order has shipped… Hurrah!  I ordered mine back in April (not sure if that matters). 

Folks who ordered from Miniature Market, Cool Stuff Inc., Fun Again Games, or some other online store let us know when you get your stuff (and also let us know where you ordered from).

Just a little  friendly competition between online retailers will be fun. I have used and trust both Miniature Market and Cool Stuff Inc many times; curious to see how these two in particular compare.

EDIT: Just noticed some folks posted theirs had also shipped in another thread.  I'd still love to hear when folks get the game and their initial impressions.

 I like this…I use Miniature Market and would love to see how they stack up.

 

I ordered on July 3rd.

Received my shipping conformation today @ 8:15am PST and am using their free shipping.

 

I will update when my order arrives.

Got my "Shipped" email yesterday (9/13) from Miniature Market.  I ordered at the end of August.

I've bought from the Warstore several times in the past and this is my second Miniature Market Order.  So far MM beats the prices I've seen elsewhere by about 10% and with free shipping once you break the $100 threshold, that makes them my go to shop now.  I'm not sure how they're making money with that low of a profit margin though.  Wholesale is usually 40-50% off MSRP and MM tends to sell at 25-35% off plus eating the shipping $.  So they're only getting a tiny slice of that pie.  But as long as they can keep it up, I'll keep ordering from them.

As far as shipping times, I live on the west coast so ground shipping takes 5 days from either of them.  Thus, no advantage to either of them there.  I'll likely be getting my order next Thursday.

Just got my UPS tracking number via email which proves it didn't actually ship yesterday, but was processed yesterday.  Which backs my theory that they stayed late last night packing and processing all these preorders.  It'll be on the truck tonight and will hit my doorstep next Thursday.

Mine wasn't delivered, but I just picked up the core set and some boosters this evening from a local brick and mortar…

Now that I've got them, I have to figure out the best way to store and transport them as they are rather delicate.

Any ideas!? :)

Just got my UPS tracking number, too.  I'm in AZ and it says it will be here by Thursday (which is what I was expecting/hoping). I also went and bought a starter and one y-wing from my LGS because I couldn't stand the wait.  Can't wait for the rest of the fleet to arrive.

Thursday for me as well. I also went to an LGS tonight and held a core set in my hands, but I couldn't convince the Mrs. to let me buy a third core when I already had two on the way.

 Just heard from my supplier, he should have them by Wednesday and with luck I'll have them by Friday or worst case early next week.

It's a race!  CSI emailed me on Thursday and quotes a Tuesday delivery target via FedEx.  MM emailed me Friday and quoted a Monday delivery date via UPS.

 

In this case, I guess MM and UPS seem to have the better shipping service.

 

And yes, I got enough little plastic ships to justify free shipping from two sites!  These battles will be EPIC!  First venue event will be next Saturday.

LOL! I was too busy messing with them on Saturday that I didn't post until after midnight Sunday morning! The shipment came in Saturday afternoon.

 My order shipped from MM on Friday, which means I'll see my order arrive here in Toronto in roughly >2 weeks. So, I'll be back here with the good news when this thread is on Page 9.

 I got mine from CSI on Sat also!  Played some games!  Met some other players, then went to local K-Mart and found the perfect storage container for only $6.56!  

Great day indeed!

I'm assuming that's CSI Miami?

AHHHHHH!  I just got notice that my fleet is stranded on my front porch.

 

Curse you work for not allowing me to be there to welcome the fleet to its new home.

Anyone's Miniature Market order still say Processing Pre-order? That might be odd in my case because I had to email them to have them remove the dice to make sure it could all go out, but it's been stuck there for a while now.

 Forget my online orders, I know they're on the way.  Am I the only one in North America with an LGS so bush league they haven't gotten their stock in yet?  At least 6 other stores in the area I could have bought from have already gotten their stock and sold out, yet no one seems to be showing any interest in playing around here.  Insert suicide smilie gif here.
