I understand this is an ambitious replica, not easy to design and produce, and I'm sure that Covid19 must have had an impact in the process, but with now more than 1 year delay I'm loosing patience and trust in this project… :(

I was on the verge of pre ordering this one until I noticed all of the delays...

At that price point I suspect it'll scare off a lot of buyers so I'm not super nervous it'll sell out...

Will wait closer to their next expected delivery date before I order.

The metal construction and animatronics are worth that price to me... And I love the brain chips part in this set... Really brings it all together!

I'm with you on this approach to ordering.

We are now at 2 years delay from first estimated shipping date (April-June 2019)
I fear we will never see this product come out, and I wonder what will happen to our non-refundable pre-order deposit…

I really hope it's just a delay. It looks like such a promising piece.

Time between update and expected warehouse shipping is getting shorter, does that mean this project is actually coming true ? …

I wonder if anyone in the statue collectors facebook groups has more experience with these timelines. I know their Ecto-1 was delayed for a LONG time but eventually shipped.

On June 23 Blitzway gave an update trough their Facebook page. I'm seeing it now only because I was searching for news about the project on goggle. I don't understand why they did not send that update by email to the people who have pre-ordered their product and are waiting for almost 3 years ! :
"Dear Blitzway fans,
We apologize for any inconvenience because of the delay.
'T-800 ENDOSKELETON ARM LIFE-SIZE STATUE' is finally ready for shipment.
Please wait a few more days.
Thank you for your patience."
This was a month ago and I have not received anything, no product, not even an update on my order nor it's estimated delivery and tracking info.
After 3 years they should at least get in touch with their customers to inquire about the validity of their shipping address.

Geez that's piss poor communication. Hope it comes through for you.

Does the arm not come with an acrylic or glass tube?

I supposed there would be one by default, but according to the unboxing in the video, it does seems like it's not.
I was a little disappointed at first, but if you think about it, a glass tube wouldn't work with the range of movements the hand does, it would bang into the glass…

Yup makes total sense.

Correction : it does seems like the glass is there after all, it's not obvious, but the guy is pulling it up in the FB video:

I got in touch with Sideshow regarding my pre-order, and it turns out when Blitzway announced the endo arm was "ready for shipment" it meant shipment to Sideshow warehouse, not to customers homes, so it makes sense Sideshow did not contact anybody yet… This is a peculiar case, where Blitzway is the maker and Sideshow is the reseller, usually manufacturing companies don't communicate with the end customers, hence the misunderstanding…
