Yup, not showing on next week's releases either.  Beginning to think the ship sank.  :(

When FFG came to an event in the UK they only brought their miniature games with them and no RPG stuff for their stand which i thought was terrible marketing and a bad show.

As for printing, the books are not printed in Europe, just shipped there. I'm pretty sure all the books are printed in China.

Probably because the minis don't weigh so much, but still a bad marketing move. I just phoned my preorder guy. Also I had this brainwave, if HMC have decided to REALLY check a container or delivery, it adds extra time to the eta. In one of my jobs we had a delivery late by four weeks, it had been taken off the cargo ship and HMC had said 'that one' to check for any kind of counterfeit goods etc We only found out after many emails and phone calls to China..

and I just checked Ebay,, I could buy it from Australia, but no where in the UK has it

I've ordered mine from an Australian gaming shop (free shipping!) as no one I phoned in the UK had it, and I was not playing $50 shipping from the FFG site!

Who would that be if I could ask?

I also ordered mine on Ebay from what turned out to be Australia despite free shipping.  It arrived on Friday.

FFG's deliveries seem to be very inconsistent across stores and types of products. The latest mythos pack for Arkham Horror LCG was in stock and despatched from my preferred UK retailer on the same day it was released in the USA, but they still don't have some restocks of the Lord of the Rings LCG that arrived three weeks ago at some other UK online stores. Meanwhile No Disintegrations was supposed to be released at the same time and is nowhere to be found :|

I've been ordering mine through Good Games in Australia, and they arrive within the week. My copy of No Disintegrations arrived yesterday, with only a minimal postage (from memory, about $5 or so).

Right... so we can all agree that so far you can either buy the book directly from FFG in the US and pay a horrible shipping fee, or you can (apparantly) purchase it on amazon from Australia with free shipping, but FFG cannot seem to send any copies to the stores themselves.

That's brilliant.

It's like FFG doesn't sell their products in the EU at all...

Just heard back from 365 Games & they tell me they should have it in 2 weeks! Fingers are crossed!!! 

Good to hear. Hopefully the same for other UK Games shops too (such as Gameslore).

Still annoying that it took longer to get into the UK than it did to OZ.

Which event was this, may I ask? Was it Celebration in London last year? Because I know what you mean about the FFG stand only having stuff like X-Wing and Armada... But after a little thought, I realized, to the larger number of non-gaming Star Wars fans, nice looking miniatures based games would be easier to market to them (and demonstrate the game in a relatively short time period). But, you're right in as far as bad show to not bring a few RPG books with them for the gaming fans...

 

Shipping from China may explain why Australia has copies before UK, assuming they don't ship straight to the US and then send them back again to Oz... With this whole fiasco, it wouldn't surprise me. :rolleyes:

It was when they went to Games Day so some years ago.

Yes, the official SW Celebration in London last year before Rogue One was out. I know what you are saying from larger appeal, but still, a few of their newer books or core books would have been nice.

i would hazard a guess at it not being 2 weeks i am thinking 2 months, its currently out of stock on FFG store as well now and waiting for a reprint so i think they just never sent any out and used all the stock for the US and some other select countries
