For short, Air companies rent their hold space to delivery companies. So less airplanes means much more expensive hold space. Also, fewer planes means more storage at the delivery companies in the buffer zone before all the parcels leave, and storage also has a cost.

Sorry if my english isn't clear enough on this point.

I've tried looking but was there ever an announcement of how heavy the total piece will be? The hulk buster when set up was extremely heavy but I'm assuming this can't be anywhere near as heavy surely?

Oh that's not too bad then Subby, the unit I have set aside had 5 Prime 1 1/3 pieces on it, each around 15kg. My plan is to have the Hulk Transformation and Banner in the middle, then the SS Gray on one side, and either the Legacy Maquette from the MCU on the right, or the Gladiator Hulk depending on space - a kind of journey of the hulk and me growing up with him in these different versions! So I should be able to comfortably get all three on the space weight wise!

XM's most recent newsletter has the first batch listed as shipping out at the end of the month. I ordered mine fairly late. I wonder how long I'll be waiting.

On another note, they also listed Gambit as one of the pieces shipping soon. Happy to see an update on him.

I bought mine as a transferred PO. So, I have no idea when mine will ship. Can't get it soon enough though.

Yeah, I saw that. Now I'm just waiting to hear from my guy. Every time I see an email in my inbox from him recently, I think it's a bill for the shipping cost of this beast. Instead, it turns out to be a PO notice for another XM product and I go back to anxiously awaiting my shipping bill.

Biting fingernails in anticipation of that shipping invoice, taking the current climate of things into consideration... I think we're looking in the $500+ range, minimum.
