Ditto. I think it refers to the EU.:\

08-26-2005, 02:21 PM
Hi Everyone,

Jonathan, please return it back. You are not supposed to have it for another 2 months. LMAO.

I wonder how realistic the 2nd Quarter of 2006 is for Aragorn at the Black Gates and Legolas and Gimli on Arod?

I thought they were going to push everything out by the end of the year. I am glad they aren't. It gives everyone a chance to recuperate from the onslaught of products coming out in the next 3 months.


The real Bullseye
08-26-2005, 02:22 PM
Any new product announcements?

08-26-2005, 02:25 PM
Jonathan, please return it back. You are not supposed to have it for another 2 months. LMAO.


What's it worth??? :lol

Hmm, Sauron's due to ship soon...but BF isn't, in theory at least. :\

08-26-2005, 02:28 PM
Amen to that happening. the way these things are being thrown out just now we are all gonna need a few months to recover.

I don't have the luxury of having a CC so the money I get goes straight to my collection, and at times like this and its a killer!.But I wouldnt change it for the world, oh for the love of Poly:yay

I'm glad theyve been pushed back personally, gives me more time to save for them:bow

:toast :gimli

08-26-2005, 02:28 PM
Hi Jonathan,

If you ever want to see Amon Hen, Send it Back !!!


Why not hostage 1 Enviornment for another.

:banana :banana :banana :banana :banana :banana

:bliss :bliss :bliss :bliss :bliss :bliss :bliss :bliss :bliss


08-26-2005, 02:28 PM
Ahh good news likely for some about A/BG and Legimarod, personally I want them all NOW!

That means however that the 4th Q will really not be all that bad, only Mumak and Obi Wan for me.

08-26-2005, 02:33 PM
Why not hostage 1 Enviornment for another.

I'd rather sacrifice my Sméagol freebie! :lol

08-26-2005, 02:51 PM
Thats a mighty push back but they said during the SDCC chat the horse and rider pieces wouldn't ship till march, and they are pushing it even further back than that.

08-26-2005, 02:56 PM
This is a big help for me! I previously ordered Legolas and Gimli, but cancelled when I started crunching numbers and realized it was just going to be too tough a year-end. I've now placed my order again for this one since there's a few more months to prepare for that credit card charge! :bliss

08-26-2005, 03:52 PM
Having just got wailist GH and Escape Plaque, I cancelled Amon Hen and the ferry. Now they've shunted the blasted ferry back to Q4 :bang :thwak :bang :thwak :bang

Wot's goin on :dunno :dunno :dunno The ferry's shipping I fort?????????? :help :help :help :help :help

TC :bonk :eye :bonk

08-26-2005, 03:55 PM
TC, I decided to get my BF from Mike. Kinda feels strange purchasing items much sooner than their arrival in the EU.

08-26-2005, 05:56 PM
Hear ya there Migwit, I just did the same thing with Aragorn at Black Gates. There's now hope :banana

NO POSTING THE NEWSLETTER!!!! :rolleyes :rolleyes :puke

08-26-2005, 07:24 PM
MR. FELL BEAST!!!! :rolleyes :rolleyes :puke

;) :peace

Seriously - They did ask that the newsletter not be published,
but there are no special deals or exclusive offers being posted
this time around, so I don't know if it is a big deal or not in this
specific case. :dunno

Mr Fell Beast
08-26-2005, 07:25 PM

Quote from the Newsletter.........

"Sideshow General Newsletter! - Date: 08/26/05
The information contained in the Sideshow Collectibles newsletter is exclusive to subscribers. The stories, links and pre-orders contained within this e-mail will not be posted live on SideshowCollectibles.com until the week after this newsletter has arrived"

So the same rules apply.........:rolleyes

08-26-2005, 09:34 PM
How strict do we need to be about this issue? Technically, a post like this, for example:

"Hey everybody, I just read in the newsletter that Aragorn and Legolas/Gimli got pushed back to 2nd quarter 2006."

...technically, that is "information contained in the Sideshow Collectibles newsletter" which they intend to be "exclusive to subscribers." If we strictly went by that statement, then we would have very little to discuss on these boards. Is it OK to discuss things like shipping date changes or edition size announcements, even though that is technically "exclusive newsletter information"? And is that sentence really any different than pasting the same info from the newsletter? After that, you have something like this, for example:

"Hey- The newsletter says that they just put Orthanc up for a second chance offer, first come first serve with only 5 pieces available!"

That would be newsletter exclusive information suddenly viewable by anybody looking at this site, newsletter subscriber or not. File a post like that under "unwanted attention." Now, here it is debatable because anybody who happened to go to Sideshow's Website could find that second chance offer themselves by simply looking around. However, the info pointing them there can be considered exclusive and tip off people who are not subscribed to the newsletter- should it be posted?

Finally, and most obviously, you sometimes have an exclusive link that takes you to an offer or preorder that is exclusively available to newsletter subscribers, like when Grievous went up. That link could not be found by simply navigating the SS website. We can probably agree that that is exclusive info and should not be posted.

So, where do we draw the line in what can be posted, paraphrased, or discussed when the newsletter starts rolling in on Fridays? (...and I know that there are people who don't always get theirs on time...but that's another issue...)

08-26-2005, 09:35 PM
I wanted all the statues to ship by the end of the year as I wanted to have all my shelves arranged and finished...


08-26-2005, 10:12 PM
i'm glad for the hold up on the Aragorn and Legolas pieces...

gives more time for everyone to pool thier loot...

08-27-2005, 01:14 AM
The extended dates are good for me too. I will have time to heal after Christmas. I would have thought this will reduce the possibility of cancellations as the first quarter could have been affected by Christmas.

08-27-2005, 04:38 AM
Don`t forget Jan/Feb will be paying the Crimbo Debts!.Lol
not to dampen the spirit:bang2

08-27-2005, 05:34 AM
Yea, I realise it is best for the majority of people for the delay and I won't cry too hard..:lol

08-27-2005, 06:00 AM
this gives me a bit more time to save for the Predator maquette
cheers SS

08-27-2005, 08:05 AM
Gut news! And I hope the ferry is pushed back but I did get the 21 days e-mail...
Maybe they pushed some back because they really do listen to us ;)
