Not in a Kessel Run.

 

I was wondering if anyone has bought any of their ships yet, one of my FLGS has the ships in (but refusing to sell), while another said they're getting them on Tuesday and selling that day.

 

I was just wondering if anyone has had a chance to buy yet

Retailers have to abide by whatever street date FFG sets.  If a store is "refusing" to sell them, it may be that they're not allowed to yet.

My FLGS thought they'd be able to get them from their local distributor today to have on sale tomorrow, but the distributor didn't have them yet.

For what it's worth, Amazon lists the ships as being in stock on Friday.

I've seen them online as reported in stock already.  My LGS is closed today anyway so I expect to pick mine up tomorrow.

I'm glad that I'm not the only person who checks FFG's site and call local retailers daily to check on the releases.  My local game shop said that they will most likely have them tomorrow.  I was the first one to put my name on the waitlist for a firespray.  I already have my points chosen for this week's game based on the new releases.  Assault missiles, leavy laser cannons, and seismic charges oh my.

That should have read FFG do not set street dates. This forum is a bugger to post on from a mobile.

The only positive side is that there are others in the same boat. Hopefully, we won't attempt to push each other into the freezing waters in order to secure our order faster…

Remember the cabbage patch kid craze of the 80’s, people fighting and stuff? Let’s try to stay civilized people. :)

I ordered mine from Miniature Market and will will probably be a long time before I get them. I also preordered the FF SWRPG, along with the minis, since I was planning on buying it. I figured this way I could get free shipping and save a little money in the long run.

Told today by LGS that they are only getting 20% of their order which means I'm not getting my order. Total bull. Sounds like allocation issues. Wondering if FFG shipped short.

2 of my LGS just posted that their orders were delayed because of shipping issues with UPS. Oh well.

i hope I can get my hands on them tomorrow

After an extra four months of delay for Wave 2, there is absolutely NO excuse for local shops to be getting shorted 80% of their orders. That is just plain shitty planning on the part of FFG. If my local shop gets shorted like this it will pretty much kill the game in my area. It's been hard keeping interest going with the delay and if people still can't get the Wave 2 ships, it's pretty much dead.

I wonder, with target doing pretty well business selling core sets, if they'll ever get expansions. It shure would be convenient for wave 2, especially now that they price match Amazon.

That is assuming that the LGS orders straight from FFG.  Most go through distributor/wholesaler.

I ordered from Miniature Market. I have a feeling I will be waiting quiet some time before my order gets shipped. Hopefully not too long. I may have been better off just buying here local.

You are making a rather large assumption in that FFG is at issue with  one posters distrubution issues.  As stated most LGSs go through distrubtors.
