What's the cheapest place to get the Mcfarlane Figures from in the UK? I think the lowest price I've seen has been £25, but there would also be postage costs.

It's stated to be based on the Sister in the 9th trailer and her armour is all black; in fact I'm not entirely convinced she has any fleur-de-lys there.


The new cartoon style artwork for the Sister advertising Metawatch has them as a grey pretty close to the shade of black for the rest of the armor, too.

When are the Mcfarlane toys supposed to be available on the US GW site?
It looks like most other nations have them available already. The wait is killing me

Edit: they are up for order now! I ordered one of each. Super excited!

Sweet. Can't wait to get the painted Sister. I hope they put out some non-Imperials soon. That Necron is getting greatly outnumbered.

If I had to make a list of figures that I'd like to see (but not necessarily own) it'd be:
-Eldar Guardian or Dire Avenger
-Chaos Marine
-Ork Boy
-Nid Genestealer or Guant
-Dark Eldar Wych or Kabalite

I got all 3.

I ordered them individually from Amazon as pre-orders. There were some worrisome delivery date changes, then they all switched to shipped, 2 on friday, delivered sat, the Necron flipped to ship yesterday, arrived this morning.

I preordered in August, and saw the date shift from Oct2 to Nov3. It was strange to see them then ship so suddenly.

Bam, said the lady!

No way. Aside from the Harlequin those are way too obscure. Exodites don't even have regular minatures

Hmm, interesting.

Despite Amazon seemingly cancelling the unpainted model preorders for many people, they have finally dispatched mine.

GW havent managed to ship yet.

I think I've only ever ordered directly from GW once before, so I don't remember the experience. I usually order from my LGS (or ebay).
But given the uniqueness of the Mcfarlane figures, I knew I had to order from GW.
My order receipt says they ship within 7 days, so I've set my expectation that they will be shipped by Saturday (when I ordered mine).

Although really it shouldn't even take that long considering they sold out that same day.
Hopefully they ship soon.

Last five times I ordered from GW, I got the shipping notification on the day of release, which is also the day the stuff arrived. No idea why they do that but there it is.

It's a cybernetic eye. Similar to the one you can see on the Primaris Iron Hand upgrade sprue.

Also, it’s silver and only looks white because it’s in the full glare of the light.

Well, Amazon delivered, and GW say one of their "servitors" broke whilst picking and packing my order.

I'm beginning to think these things are cursed.

Got my delivery estimated from UPS. Should be here on Sunday.
I've never had anything delivered by UPS before so this should be interesting.
I usually get things delivered through USPS and a couple times from FedEx.
One particular FedEx delivery was a poor experience: they said they tried to deliver but no one was home, which was a utter LIE because that was when I first started working from home and was less than 10ft from the door and would have heard them knock.
So they clear just skipped my house entirely and lied about it

Hopefully UPS does better.

Like all delivery services it probably depends on your driver and my local UPS driver is very poor. I live in the countryside and he quite obviously can’t be bothered coming out to us. I just get a text saying delivery attempted but you went home. In a farmer, I’m alway around the yard. There are people working here pretty much all day everyday. I’ve cameras all over the place. Unless he’s invisible he isn’t here. All other delivery drivers manage it, but not him. I’ve written complaint emails several times and got nowhere. Gggrrrrr UPS......

I picked up a McFarlane Artists proof from Warhammer Coventry. I am genuinely impressed with it for the price, a nice chunky figure with a decent articulation and a lot fewer mold lines than I assumed. If you use a hot water bath he is very easy to break down into various bits for painting as well.

Off the shoulder of Orion

Mine arrived a couple of days ago from a local online retailer. Pretty good quality of both the model and the paint job. I was surprised how heavy and solid it was - I’m not sure if the armour is a very thick plastic or resin, but it’s a pretty substantial figure.

Needed to use hair dryer to get his chainsword into the hand - it really is a solid material.

Great, they look good next to each other and can plausibly be the in the same scale. I thought mcfarlane's would be smaller than bandai's

They're pretty much spot on. The weapons from one work on the other if you head up the hands.

Sounds familiar; mine was "unable" to deliver because the building's front door theoretically requires a code to open, but had he actually tried to deliver, he would have seen it was in fact wide open (it always is in summer). Instead, I received a note telling me to pick it up at the "local" UPS office - of which there is only one in Finland. More than 600km from where I live. It took some effort to convince them that was a bit unreasonable, and they might want to try actually delivering it instead. Got my delivery in the end, but never again! It was something from GW, which was "upgraded" to shipping via UPS for free (due to the weight of the order I think it was?). If ever that happens again, I'll beg GW to ship it via the slower but far more reliable normal post, thank you very much...

The McFarlene figure's backpack is way undersized so that might do it, but head to head they are pretty spot on.
