Itís a real shame the preorder discounts will no longer be done, it pretty much means Iíll never be direct ordering again (as Iím sure many internationals wonít) as after the import tax and shipping the price wonít be far off the (extortionate) amount retailers charge over here!
I totally agree with this. I wonder if Chronicle have ever considered setting up a distribution warehouse somewhere in Europe to overcome these ridiculous charges. I think many more people would purchase their products if they did. El Diablo, I assume you live in Europe...apologies if you don't.

I would certainly buy stuff if there was a warehouse in Europe. I buy Weta statues from their EU warehouse but have never ordered anything from the states. When Sideshow gave up their european warehouse, I stopped buying from them. The JP diorama is the only thing I'm considering, and as you say even for set A the cost from a local retailer is £1500. They say they allow £200 for shipping, but that still makes it £400 more expensive than ordering from Iron Studios. Would any tax payment make it that expensive? Is £200 a realistic shipping price?

The same issue on the 2 raptor busts. Every time I look at my JP1 bust, I being reminded of poor taxidermy.

I do work as an illustrator specifically with animals/creatures, so I hope I'm just just me that see's these things--because I want these products to be the best.
Maybe I will feel different after seeing the new eye.

Totally agree, I have the raptor bust and it even bothers me in person, if they tweaked the eyes so they pointed forward slightly it would make the world of difference imo, as they are now it kind of looks like the dumb/homer Simpson raptor haha, still love it though

Wish I had known this before I placed my order direct through Chronicle. No preorder discount for Baby Blue, and I could have gotten points from SS.

I went to a general store. They wouldn't let me buy anything specifically.

Which is exactly why I don't understand the reasoning for not offering it anymore, and an "exclusive tshirt" or something like that they want to include in the future isn't going to make up for that. I would rather them not pay sideshow the middleman fee and pass that along to the early bird loyal customers.
