Anyon know what is the latest news on the Boba fett blast kit? I’ve been waiting for over a year. Last they posted it was going to ship 4th quarter. Which has come and gone.
yeah, I kinda hate to say it, but you may be in for some bad news. I think a more accurate estimate will be possible if anyone ever starts getting anything from them again. For now best guess is: never. Even money says they will stop existing before delivering some of this stuff.

Guessing some of you are in this same boat:

I assume that we are SOL: Our money is gone, we lose, and we have to move on. Awful but I want to know FOR CERTAIN before going to spend any money and planning on anything else. Like y'all I start planning in Spring for Halloween stuff and it would SSUUCCKK to gear up for something else and have my costume appear out of the blue.

So I guess the question - can they legally just ignore us forever? Is that what EFX is doing with their Legend Biker Scout helmet?
I really DO feel for the people in your situation. I admit it, and I AM ashamed to say it, but most of why I still come to this thread is out of a sense of fascination. I can say that most of you have way more patience than me. I start getting annoyed when things are a few weeks late. I can't do years.

My advice is: move on. If it ever does show up, maybe you can get a decent price for it on eBay. After all, its not like the people bidding on it would have many other options.

Looks like Anovos is finally making updates to the Product Availability pages. Unfortunately the Star Wars page still shows Q4 2020.
Yeah, uhhhhhh, is it me or did they just simply write 2021 at the top of the Star Wars page and not change ANYTHING in the content? What is in the mind of the person who sits down to do that?

By the way, I contacted Lucasfilm with the concern that they still have Anovos puff pieces on their site. I laid out a little bit of how their fans have been treated, how much money we have lost, and how, unless there is something I don't know, they may want to take those off starwars.com. I told them that I felt it looks awfully bad at this point.

To my surprise I got a response thanking me for my concern and that it would be forwarded in full to someone higher up the chain.

And the individual who answered me seemed a little shocked by what I presented.

Anyway...

The only updates I see on the Star Wars Product Availability page is the title and the file name. Some of the other Product Availability pages do show updates to the estimates for some products. This was the first sign of any activity on a Star Wars page in quite a while. Obviously it isn't much and doesn't provide any new information.

The latest Star Wars update I see on the website is from October 24th, 2020. The October 9th post was updated on October 24th.


Oh boy, just a few more weeks until they release the silent update that says they now anticipate shipments to begin in staggered waves over LATE Q2 (April 2021 - June 2021) into Q3 2021 (July 2021 - Sept 2021)...

Sadly, making a significant update to the Star Wars Product Availability page would be more than they have done regarding Star Wars products than they have for the past 5 or 6 months.

I'm at like 1.5 a day frankly....not sure why. Never showed them the slightest interest in anything but SW.
They're desperately trying to stay afloat by advertising as many products as they can. All emotions aside, there's nothing wrong with that.

No offense to the DS9 crowd (I used to watch (and love) the show myself) but "limited time offer on DS9 baseball jerseys" doesn't seem like prime merchandise to me.

Maybe there's a huge DS9 baseball jersey crowd out there. If so: get them while they're hot! But...

I would like DS9 baseball stuff Pepperbone, so no offense taken :cool:

Since Anovos never responded to items I paid for in full with no delivery, I am in a Goodfellas ‘don’t buy anything’ mode until that’s fixed.

That said I look forward to some of the Star Wars nights games here when baseball is back for everyone, at least I know I will have my jersey for that franchise, produced and delivered by companies that make these all the time...but I digress...

Thanks! :) I should have worded it differently though.

And yes, same here, no purchases.
