I don't care about numbers or some day one card. Getting a prototype-perfect release with nothing broken is all that matters. I admit, I wasn't excited about Bowser, because he's more or less what I'd expected - but he's massive! I'm glad they went with their gut ambition on getting the scale right.

People cancelled cause they couldn't get a low number?! They're going to regret that decision when this piece comes out me thinks.

Then for the validation period to go up in flames and having to wait 20 minutes doesnít help.

Yeah itís just a number, but Jesus that went very bad. This is a learning experience so hopefully they find what the problem was and fix it for next time. I guess congrats on the people that were able to get their validation in under a minute. You were the lucky ones.

I totally agree and the Blind Pre Orders should have not went into the same pool of new orders when we supported Bowser months ago and showed a loyal confidence that we trusted them from their great past work that Bowser will be tuly Eipc!!!

Plus, if a customer didn't like it after the reveal F4F would allow a cancellation with full refund. So, everyone had a chance to do the Blind order then cancel if they wanted to, so Blind Orders really should be in a seperate lower pool then the recent orders .. The Blinds should have there own Validation..

I'm glad the detail is there because if he were just big I wouldn't have gotten him. His size is impressive, but if he were just a big ol' piece of tacky looking plastic I would have saved my money for something else.

Oh yeah, I failed to mention the details. Without that, he's like an oversize vinyl you'd find at Toys R Us. The fit and finish on the base is sharp.

Hopefully all the details can be preserved for the production. He's going to be commanding that's for sure!

Blind Pre-orders weren't advertised to have there own pool for validation so it should not have priority. But maybe for future releases.

I agree and understand and it was not Working due to F4F technical issues with IOS and some other Browsers..

My Online Service is great though and all else loaded super fast except the Validation button didnt work..

I still Love F4F and like others here have stated it was a fail, but now we can see where things went wrong and how to improve in the future. I like the idea someone said that Blind Day One should get a cool slighlty better bonus and then do a different Bonus for Live Day one orders...

Its sucks, but i'll live. Its not the end of the world. But I am laughing at the people that legit cancelled because they couldnt get a low number. Thats just silly. I dont understand those people.
Oh definitely, i'm not saying you were one of those people but i saw a lot of people believing they were entitled to a lower number, when that was never the intention of the blind PO.

I think something clearer should have been set up and if you did do the blind PO you should have just got a bonus card saying that you did the PO blind and thanks for your support.

+1

Wasn't having longer to pay it off the bonus for the blind pre-order?

Why should you get something special just for pre-ordering a pre-order.
