I was able to purchase a preorder card from blizzard which consisted of free shipping and full payment up front. I paid $450 plus tax all up front. But, the kicker for this was I attended anime expo and purchased at blizzard booth
Maybe try emailing and asking for preorder card with code if this is not possible for online purchases

Most companies, referencing art of war, will let you pay all up front if asked.

Good luck

In my experience they charge you up front which really is BS but thats what they do.

Blizzard charged me in full for Widowmaker few days after placing preorder and it's not scheduled to ship until later this year. Would love to add this statue, but $450 plus shipping and tax is too much to charge now for something that is not coming out until early next year. A deposit would make more sense if it was an option. Likely will wait when statue is out before buying, if it's not sold out.

For those attending SDCC, we have a panel on Friday where I'll talk a little about Blizzard Collectibles.

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

I know, just poking fun.

Maybe you can just ask the right person in Blizz, dealing with pieces..."when more of them SC pieces due?" hehe Where the Protoss love? Need a Hydralisk piece.

And tell them I need some Terran vehicles (a deployable siege tank) about the size of 3A's Rex / Ray.

Damn, so Blizz instead of coming up with payment plans, considering that this is the most expensive statue they produced yet, is charging everything upfront now? That's messed up. One thing that seriously suffers with the entire process is - the vendor, and inability to get in touch with them through chat, phone. Sure, you can talk to the CS, but they won't be able to help you out.

No previews, just dropping the bomb like that with Pos or like with Illidan? Sure, it's still available, but I, for one would like to know in advance. Or be able to pay in instalments. Or pay NRD. Definitely not happy about dropping $500 and then waiting for months...

Which really sucks. Imagine paying close to 1k, and waiting for 6-12 months with no payment plans whatsoever
