Look out for #1. Don't step in #2 either.

Anyone know where IS ships from? The full set is about $40 cheaper directly from them, but that could easily be offset by international shipping.

I am interested in this diorama but I have never ordered from Iron Studios.
Does anyone have first hand knowledge about the quality of the statues? I saw that there have been a few changes from the prototypes show at comic-con and the statues now up for pre-order: the most obvious being Uni had her eyes open in the prototype version but now the pre-order version shows the eyes closed and the water in the well next to the Diana statue was blue, now it appears to be a murky brown.
I also noticed that a couple of characters (Bobby and Dungeon Master) seem to be looking in a completely different direction from the rest of the characters. Anyone know if there will be companion pieces like the Tiamat Dragon or Venger?
Has anyone ordered from this company? Do they have coupon codes or discounts for pre-ordering the entire set?

Tiamat who knows, but Venger pretty sure, he is in concept art on first page. Just watched this on Blu Ray been many years, great show

I was thinking the same thing. I think that they do ship from the US but I did a quick check with available statues at both sideshow and Iron Studios and there seems to be a noticable difference in shipping rates and tax:

For the Carnage 1/10 BDS :
Sideshow shows the totals as follows for me in CA:
Subtotal $114.99
Tax $8.34
Shipping $12.91
Item Total $136.24

Iron Studios shows the totals as follows:
Subtotal $109.00
Taxes $10.35
Shipping $21.00 (Cheapest available - 3-8Days)
Total $140.35

So even though Iron Studios gives an initial discount, after higher shipping fees and more tax, sideshow seems to be the cheaper option, at least on this particular carnage statue.

I ordered directly from IS US site for the first time last week. The shipment started in California.

The shipping rates are terrible. Use SS or Big Bad toystore. The only reason I went to the website was because the statue I wanted was half of what BBTS is selling it for.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

From what Renan (IS's owner) said before, there already is a concept for a Venger statue and it's currently pending approval by the licensor. How sales go might influence the line, but looks like they are going pretty well. For Tiamat there is no information so far.
