Anybody really thinks the Morgul Lord wil ship next month.... :wave

BTW, you're missing the Mines of Moria in your list, july/august

GrishnakhMan
06-15-2004, 05:07 AM
Thats what I thougt, thats really what started my mind on this thread...

If Sideshow can't update their dates thought we might be able to get together and sort it out here...:rock

UPDATED TO HERE...

Helms Deep - May / June 04
Golden Hall - May / June 04

I remember reading someone's post on here that some SS rep. said these would ship in July.

GrishnakhMan
06-15-2004, 05:24 AM
Cheers IAL, I thought that too, but wasn't sure...

See the list is useful, it's more accurate than the Sideshow website already...:b

Great Idea, very handy

Goldberry

Yes, great thread! Another one that should be made sticky if it's regularly updated. :rock

I'm sure I've read that Gandalfax is pushed back to some time next year, even later than January. Anybody?

Haradhrim out in July would be fantastic! :rock I'm so curious about that guy and am sure I'll love him!

I've been wondering how dealers that rest their income solely on Sideshow (LOTR) are coping right now. I've seen a so far pretty expensive German SideshowWeta dealer reduce their Baby Balrog to less than Sideshow's price (!!!). But pre-payment on order is a definite Nono.

Damn fine idea dude,

I hope for my credit cards sake G/SF is pushed back to next year. Having said thatI really want to get hold of it in person.

Why thank you all, if someone feels they would like to make this sticky I shall be updating it regularly, I'm on here most days some lurking some posting so it should always be up to date...

Actually the Mines of Moria arent expected until august/september according to my lastest email from SideShow. Which of course sucks. Its nice if they delay some of the statues so my creditcard can take a breather, but its pretty useless when ALL of em get delayed :cry .

GrishnakhMan
06-16-2004, 05:39 AM
OK, cheers B Electronic, MOM updated, any other dates on that email from Sideshow...

GrishnakhMan
06-16-2004, 08:19 AM
Sorry me trying to be clever and create a html table with colours and everything, but it didn't like my coding...

Oh well, back to the old way with some minor editing...

If this topic becomes sticky I shall sort out a proper html table etc...:rock

Gondor59
06-18-2004, 01:56 AM
I think the date for Sauron is incorrect as January 04 has long since passed...anyway, it will probably be late summer 05 before they actually ship....:rolleyes

GrishnakhMan
06-18-2004, 02:08 AM
Oops sorry it should have been Jan 05...FIXED...

I'm trying to keep the list as accurate as told from Sideshow rather than 'best estimate' and while we all know most of the statues will be delayed the list should give us a good idea...

(Although it does look like Legolas may be shipping a few months early !!!)...

06-28-2004, 01:16 AM
I just received an update email from SS about King Ellesar who will now ship Oct '04...

And at the moment this thread doesn't contain plaques or busts, do people want me to include them or should I start a separate thread for them???

jlcmsu
06-28-2004, 01:34 PM
Still have not recieve this email saying Elessar is in Oct must be a EW notice I guess.

06-29-2004, 12:50 AM
Erm, here is the email I got...

*********************************

Dear Valued Customer,

We thank you for placing your pre-order for the upcoming King Elessar Statue (item #9335) from our Lord of the Rings Collectible line.

In response to our collectors' feedback over the past few months, Sideshow Collectibles has increased its quality control procedures in order to ensure that you receive the highest quality LOTR statue possible. One that you will be proud to include in your collection.

Some important aspects our quality improvements are stringently controlled painting techniques and stronger packaging which will provide our items ultimate safety during shipping.

Due to these changes, we want to inform you that the release date for the King Elessar Statue has changed from a June/July anticipated release date to a Oct '04 release date.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience as we strive to bring you the best LOTR collectible possible.

We will keep you updated on the King's expected arrival date in the upcoming months.

*********************************

Maybe it ws just an EU thing, or maybe it's just a random SS thing, sometimes I get notices like this sometimes I don't and a mate will, it does seem to be a bit of a lottery...

And as an aside, thanks to everyone who has read this thread, over 1000 reads...:rock

I've got several items on order, including the Golden Hall environment. Should I expect an email from SS advising when it will ship?

All the items I've previously bought direct from SS have been notified on date of shipping. Does the advance notice email only apply to backordered items??

Thx

Rob

07-13-2004, 05:16 PM
Nope you should of had one for the Golden Hall.
I got this on the 7th

Our Customer Service Department has indicated that
you have placed a pre-order for The LOTR - Golden Hall
Environment (Item #9704). This item is currently on it's
way to our warehouse and we expect it to arrive within
the next 20-25 days.

Although not a statue just got delivery confirmation for the Numenorean Infantry Helm!

GrishnakhMan
07-14-2004, 12:23 AM
What you have to remember and take into account is that the US warehouse is 'generally' 1 month or so ahead of the EU warehouse, simply because the statues ship from the US warehouse across to the EU warehouse where they then have to send them on...

Thats why I have separated the lists into US and EU, to get a better scale of whats coming in either side of the atlantic.

It is also useful to note that the EU customers have a bit of foresight as they can monitor the US notifications and know what will be coming in a month or so...

You'll get what's coming to you next month Nessa. I don't think that helped her either, creecher. :mwaha Awww, Nessa! :grouphug :b

Actually, I'm also having withdrawal symptoms but rather moneywise than anything else. ;) All I could afford in the last month was a couple of medaillons, which I don't like at all. :bang Put them back in the box and stored them in the cupboard. :doh
But if everything works out, I may be holding a Boromir in my hands sooner or later. :yay

Why this thread with over 3000 views still hasn't been made sticky, is beyond me! :rolleyes

I have to keep searching it out whenever I'm going through my accounts to keep track of which statues are actually coming out on the estimated date and which ones are getting pushed back and pushed back and pushed back.

Thanks again, Grishnakman for all the work updating this thread. Just know, that it's very much appreciated. http://last-alliance.net/phpBB2/images/smiles/love.gif
