Has there been any word yet when Danni Mint (Brexit) and The Russian will be up for PO? I really want the Danni Mint one.

Yeah, that sucks. Mine has always leaned. Pisses me off a little bit every time I see her.

Which direction is she leaning? Towards her spear gun?

I had a similar problem and losened the screw that attaches her to the base and was able to straighten her up. The problem I found wasn’t that she was starting to actually lean but that her foot (which isn’t flat) forced her to angle forward when pushed flush with the flat base which was caused by tightening the connection all the way. Hopefully that makes sense.

Yeah. Mine leans toward the spear gun. I'll check it out and see if I can fix her. Thanks for the info, brother.

No problem. You might have to adjust the angle of the spear gun hand a bit to assist in pushing her upright once youíve created a bit of play on that base/foot connection. Hope it works. LMK how it goes.

The people over at BBTS seem really nice.
They offer a straight forward policy of, return the item, receive a refund, purchase a replacement.
There's none of this, smash up the piece, and send photo's.

A new Whisper should be heading my way very soon.
Instead of using USPS, i paid slightly more for faster shipping via FedEX. I would have preferred DHL, but BBTS don't use DHL

All i'm working on now, is recovering one of the import charges, which is going to take some time, as those guys are slow.

I wonder why BBTS don't include the Gentle Giant shipper box?
Maybe Gentle Giant don't supply shipper boxers to BBTS?

It’s because GG generally ships statues the size of Whisper 3 to a case. So there’s only 1 shipper to go around between the 3 and it’s larger than it needs to be for just 1 so my guess is it gets recycled.

No word yet. My guess is, they want to get Fireball completed and shipped first. I really hope Danni Mint is next in line.
