Look on the bright side bro, you paid for yours I assume. I still need to pay for mines, and not everyone could afford BR Joker. So be happy atleast you are able to get one. But I feel your pain bro. A lot of people was hoping to get it for Christmas.

Man, I tell ya. The one man who needs to join in on this session more than any of us is Joe. Once he gets back from his "long walk", that is.

I can wait. I'm not happy about it, mind you, but it's just another figure. No biggie. But poor Joe...must suck to try to run a business when the DCDs of the world don't play ball. Especially when the fanboys have their pitchforks sharpened and their torches ready.

It does suck, though.

Yeah.. paid for it the day after I got my invoice. To be perfectly honest it's not a big deal for me since I (well actually ALL of us) have been waiting since what, late October/Early November. So a couple weeks more is fine. I think Joe mentioned him at least being happy that the shipment hadn't been delayed to March. I just figured why not have a thread for eveyone to vent about it. :D

I'm really pissed at DC Direct right now. I was going to pick up a few of their Watchmen 7" figures, but I think I've changed my mind now. If this is how they like to treat their customers, they don't deserve my hard earned cash.

I sure hope Joe posts an email or physical address of DC Direct for angry letters.

This is VERY unacceptable. Could you imagine if DC Direct was in charge of the Dark Knight DVDs and only had enough for 1/2 of the country so they delayed the release by a month? People would riot. :monkey4

CSC (https://www.cornerstorecomics.com/index.cfm?page=shopping/shop&Category_ID=12&ChildCategory_ID=106&Product_ID=153) has it set for January 2nd as well. I had previously heard December 29th, so 3 days is nothing after getting over the disappointment of not having it for Christmas. :google

I talked to Ryan (CSC) a week ago and he said his shipment was due the 24th but wouldn't go out until the 29th. CSC gets their supply from DC, I'm sure the 2nd is valid. I'm ok with it, I'm on vacation until the 6th. It is disappointing but worked out for me.

I'm trying to be patient, too, but I'm antsy. Mine was going to be pretty much my only Christmas present of any real value this year. (My Dad paid for it, cool guy). This is just the capper on the rotten year my family has had. (I know, I know, it's just a toy, but things like that can cheer you up) I hold no ill will towards Joe whatsoever, he's aces, (and trapped between a rock and a hard place here) but I think DC Direct deserves a stocking full of coal.

So I heard a rumor they're being pushed back EVEN further now...is this true? And what's this about the possibility of a V1 with a V2 head shipping out? Any validity to this?

This only goes to further the point that DC Direct always was and always will be a crap company giving us overpriced cheap quality products. A handful of their figure lines have been any good and those that were weren't worth the price tag. I hope they (and Mattel) go under. Sideshow and Hot toys should distribute their own product and the only mass market figures should be in control of hasbro (I mean like 6 inch figures).

The Drizzle

Probably so. BBTS is usually one of the last to get HT items. I still order from them frequently because #1- Sometimes items coming later allows me to save up money and get ready when the 1st people start getting them from Hong Kong, and #2- BBTS packs the figures excellently. Every HT figure I have ever received from them came in super minty-fresh packaging. (which is great since HT boxes are usually very nice.)
I ordered Abe Sapien and Hellboy from them for the very reason of hoping to have the money then, and also their price is like $15 per figure cheaper than Sideshow's prices.

AW!! I was REALLY looking forward to it. Im waiting for my TDK from my cousin in Hong Kong too... She said she would mail it this friday... lets hope I get something before xmas break ends, or I will be really really pissed. I got a job just so I can get Bank Robber Joker (hehe xD). Its kinda stressful, so I want the Joker to motivate me to keep me from quitting the job

I think that's perhaps the best way of equating this. Since DVD and blu-ray releases reach a wider number of consumers, it would cause an uproar of ludicrous proportions if the DVD and/or blu-ray were pushed back for such a long length of time. We're in the privileged minority of those who seek out collectibles based on the stories we love. That being said, this is a company that makes its profit by marketing to individuals such as ourselves. If we as consumers voice our disapproval about such protracted waits, one would hope they would listen. I was looking forward to having my BR Joker on the shelf and staring down my DK Batman menacingly alongside the v1 Joker and the Joker bust. Now that the DCD shipment has been pushed back AGAIN, that'll have to wait... as will we all, AGAIN, for the BR Joker. DCD continues in its unparalleled quest to screw the consumer a little bit harder and faster time after time. :banghead

if there really are infinite realities, and every possible occurrence is possible, THIS particular one should NEVER exist because none of my infinite realities should EVER have to not get the DVD release (or blu-ray in this case).

It's not a rumor. Joe (Mista305) stated in the commerce section he won't get his shipment in until Jan. 2, 2009. Luckily though.. he's getting 100% of his shipment, which means all of us who ordered from him will be getting our BR Joker. The rumor he mentioned in there was that vendors were only going to get 25% of their order which REALLY caused a panic amongst distributors. Thankfully that didn't happen. So Jan. 2nd Joe will get his shipment and then he'll start getting them out.

Looks like I'm joining in this too! Even though mine was dispatched on Monday 15th and customs delayed it with import charges which is being held until I get the letter/bill to pay. Which never arrived today, if it arrives on Saturday, then payment cleared on Monday not much chance of it being delivered next week. Since it's Christmas Eve on Wednesday. :/

It's looking very slim for delivery next week now.

If the blasted thing never got stuck with import fees it would have arrived on Wednesday, 17th.

I really don't know. If you want to be 100% certain that you'll get it soon the best bet would be to search for "Bank Robber Joker In Stock" on Ebay.

The economy is hitting ebay sellers kinda hard. I used the "Buy it Now/Best Offer" option and picked up a BR Joker pre-order for $135.00 shipped. Earlier in the week I grabbed a HT Lost Predator for $105.00 plus shipping.

I would encourage everyone to use the "Best Offer" option before hitting the "Buy it Now" button on ebay. You could end up with a sweet deal and save some bucks fueling your addiction.

I thought the shipments come in to retailers Wednesday 01/07 and then the retailers start shipping them out that Wednesday through Friday, etc. I'm curious to see how many people (who didn't order from Joe/Mista305) come up short. Because Joe was/is guaranteed 100% of his shipment whereas other retailers (or so I've heard) are only suppose to get portions of their shipments. It'll be interesting.

We're almost cured people!!! :D

BBTS shipped out some 2 weeks ago, like I said before. They must not have gotten all their shipments or only shipped out those who ordered "collector's grade" but they were shipped. CSC is another thing though, I don't think they shipped any out.

swiftlikessharpthings
01-05-2009, 12:57 PM
I received mine on December 23rd from BBTS and I didn't order collector's grade. I did, however, order mine when they first offered it for pre-order. So a more likely conclusion is that they only received their first shipment or a fraction of it, or they ordered them from multiple sources and only received from one source.

I just got an email from a place i order a number of my things that they are going out of business, so no orders will be fulfilled, including all of the dark knight items i put on pre-order.

So, no bank robber, no tumbler, 1:2 bust, nothing, ...
so now i have to try and find vendors again.



JESUS, one email, and it all goes away
and it was a good size order too.

I'm hoping to get 1 bank robber, but now i don't know if there'll be any

Devil_666

Yeah I paid him with a Debit/CC the day after he requested payment. Funds were taken out that day (pending) and officially went through a couple days later. I'm sure Joe and his people will get there. I'll be a little concerned if I don't receive anything today though, since it's my understanding shipping starts today. So if I don't get a shipping notice, I guess that means I have nothing going out today!? We'll see.

Okay, when you said invoice i was thinking you hadn't been charged yet, which would be a problem. I haven't heard anything on shipping yet either. But I didn't get a shipping notice on one of my purchases from him, yet still showed-up w/o incident.

"I held off on charging the order just to make sure we could ship a Bank
Robber and a regular Joker at the same time. Your order was the last one in
the system before the cut off. DC Direct shipped us enough to cover anyone
who successfully processed. Everyone else will be shipping in June. Your
order just went through processing and it should ship out first thing
tomorrow. You will have tracking once our last shipment of the day
processes."
