    I ordered mine using my Prime account on Amazon.com. With 2 day shipping, it should be here on Friday. I canceled my BBTS preorder as it is taking way, way too long. They just keep pushing back the arrival date.

    I just ordered 2 from Amazon as well
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    Well, I went with the group mentality and also canceled my BBTS pre-order and got it through Amazon. Tired of waiting for this!

    I am surprised so many people are canceling their pre-orders! Can't wait a few extra days and support the smaller businesses. Of course the big companies are going to get things a little quicker. I never could understand this gotta have it right now mentality when we have already been waiting months.
    Contact me if you have MOTU Merchandise Items for sale or trade! Please view a sampling of what I am looking for Here:

    I did the same
    BBTS shipping rates to Australia are quite high (Edit) , Yes I get the Castle is heavy, Amazon had 2 options $33 AmazonGlobal Expedited Shipping (averages 8-16 business days) or $68 AmazonGlobal Priority Shipping (averages 2-5 days) $33 option and Sold

    *Edit, BBTS rates to Aus: USPS Air Mail $54.24, USPS Express Mail $65.99,
    UPS AIR SERVICE $67.99.

    I have used BBTS many times over the years with great success, I just don't want them to start getting like Digital River with their shipping prices.

    BigBadToystore is $2.79 more after shipping, but I've had great service with them and I have a store credit of $17.85...so it works out quite nicely for me. I have no problem waiting. I still have no idea where I'm going to put this beautiful piece!

    To each his own. If I can get the same thing from another company, and save a little on top of it, and get it sooner, why not I've bought PLENTY of things from BBTS recently so it's not like I'm hurting them.

    Yeah BBTS is probably just getting their ducks in a row. This is my 1st order through them. It's the same price as amazon & I did the upgrade for the collectors cut. Hoping for a minty box. These were supposed to be in our hands in February. So yeah, what's another couple days. And Yes supporting the smaller business in today's economy is the way to go. Either way this CG will be amazing!!

    What did or BBTS sell their CG for?? Mine cost me the same as Amazon. Did I miss a special deal somewhere? Or are we just talking shipping time?

    Not to take away from what you are saying but in this case BBTS is the bigger business, I am an example of the "small business" as I have no employees and run my store myself but I got my stores shipment from AFX and have begun shipping customer orders. BBTS bought from the exact same people and in a MUCH larger quantity so they in theory would have had it before me.

    Its just odd that my small store got its shipment and is shipping and Amazon got its large shipment and is shipping, but BBTS is in limbo (probably processing the shipment since they are close to me and should have received their stock today or tomorrow)

    This is not the first time this has happened either with them, its been more and more frequent and there is no real reason why

    I was wondering if anyone could help me out. I can't seem to find the Castle on amazon using the search function. I don't know if that is because I'm in Europe? Could anyone provide me with a direct link to the product page on amazon?
    Thanks!
    Awesome sticker included!

    Well in this case this is one of the largest runs Icon Heroes has ever done, if you go to AFX themselves you will see the next shipment is due in October because I assume its 100% sold out as far as what they made this time.

    They are basically giving away the Cats Lair statue but the MOTU Castle was made more and is sold out, that should tell you something about the power of MOTU

    This is true Mark. The power of MOTU is strong. Plus this CG piece is very detailed & the box art is such a great additional touch.
    What kind of box was the TCats lair put in???

    I was actually thinking of getting the Cats Lair with the additional free figures because it is such a good deal!

    Can't wait for Snake Mountain and Talon Fighter!

    Can I still get this somewhere for a reasonable price? I'm in Germany and I don't want to get killed by the shipping costs
