Yes, old thread, but for anyone else ordering based on this thread...
I'm in Western Australia, so ordered via the AU site, stock on hand, awesome.
Received e-mail confirmation from Element 14 they would process my order in 2 weeks!
Week or so later it was 'processed' and confirmed as shipping ETA of couple of months!!
I phoned but apparently once the order was placed it was too late and general run around re website orders.
Ordered online, was a few weeks, but as listed and expected.
WA store now holds local stock, around half dozen, but restocks regularly.
NB: If you dial their generic call centre number they will confirm stock in WA, which may not be available (sits in boxes in the warehouse for a day or two until unpacked and shelved)
If you pay and order in-store, they will order another from their warehouse and call when it arrives and is unpacked. Stock unboxed in the meantime goes on the shelf and you're not called
Inefficient for the customer but you can work around it once you know the process...
