Edit.. oops.. meant this post to be a response to Abishur's reply to me...
True, but the pricing thing is unrelated to the manufacturing and delivery questions. I"m not saying they"re not being upfront/honest about the fact there is a problem… but it"s been 12 days with no updates on it and all we do here is ask each other for dates. umm… wait, that didn"t come out right… I"m a married man!
Anyway, I just wish RPF would step up their profile a bit, take lead of the issues, and gets the facts out. By now, they should know how many are fixed, how many remain to be fixed and when they should be done, and which distributors get them at what time. From there, sure, the distributors handle fulfillment and only they can provide realistic ship date estimates.
No more whining from me, though. I"m grateful for the (eventual) opportunity to have one of these things if/when they finally show. And I do appreciate this forum and the work you moderators do to keep it going.

LOL, love the date joke! I'm afraid that 12 days isn't really that long considering the time it takes to pack everything back up and have it clear all those customs again My point of talking about their upfrontness and honesty is to point out that if there was news to be given, they would be giving it Well, I say that, but I know Liz got a bit hurt here in the states (there was a tweet about a while back) and she's the one that does most the posts on twitter and the forum so it might be possible that she's temporarily out of commission so we're not getting every minuet detail like we're used to, but sadly patience is the key here. Try and keep in mind the ebb and flow of a global marketplace, things aren't as simple as just shipping from state to state or even as easy as shipping within the EU. Also try to keep in mind that it's possible (and I have *no* news about this, I'm just speculating with you at the moment) that there is something going on but they're legally not allowed to discuss it at the moment. I know a lot of people have gotten fairly upset about NDAs, but sadly that's the way the world runs these days
Long paragraph with lots of randomness aside, my real only point here is that 12 days is an annoyance to be sure, but it's not that long when you consider the big picture of what's going on. While I guess they could put up a post every days that said "no status change" I think we'd all get pretty annoyed with that *real* quick
Dear forum: Play nice
