So you really wish they would update them more than the brand new updates from the industry recognized award winning Anthony Scroggins?

I guess they could fire the best art director and artist they've ever had, and hire some schlub to make them look like Gundams or something, but that would be utterly Medged.

I ordered the Beginner Box and the Not-Beginner Box direct from Catalyst about a week ago, and just got the shipping notice today. I'm looking forward to introducing my son to some old-school mecha combat.

Oh nice, how bad was the postage to Japan?

Not the person you asked, but it sucks. I got both sets and the shipping was 60% of the total price. Plus it took them 10 days to send me a damned tracking number. 2 business days left before I let them know I'm pissed about it.


Seems better than to Spain where the price doubles... As much as I'm dying to get this I'll have to pass. If I find it at the store when I return to Spain for holidays I will buy it, if not... It's not the first time I had to pass on something due to unreasonable postage.

Not sure where do you live Albertorious but so far none of the shops in Madrid I've checked online seem to carry it.

In Madrid, actually. I know some people has gotten it preordering and such, but as far as I known, no store has gotten enough to actually put any in the store.

My stuff arrived today. At first glance, everything looks pretty good. The models seem a lot larger than the ones I had back in the '80's/'90's. The Quick Start rules seem pretty much the same, but of course it's been long enough that I may be mistake.

And now they are out. *Sigh*

I can't catch a break on this set, and when my last order from GF9's website took 6 months and three e-mails to support to fix, I'm not keen on ordering it from their web site.

Are you signed up at MiniatureMarket for product alerts? I imagine that's how what they got in was snagged so quickly.

Ugggh. Broken auto cannon on the shadowhawk and the locust snapped at the ankles and is missing its left machine gun.

Miniature market was great giving me a partial refund but I am still waiting to hear back from catalyst and I do not expect much from them.

Anyone else gotten broken mechs in their box?

From previous posts I thought I read that Catalyst Games used GF9/Battlefront for their store/shipping. Did I misread/imagine that?

In my experience, Catalyst are brilliant when it comes to replacing broken/miscast miniatures. Might take some time for them to get to you but they will.

(I don't want to jinx it, but the last beginner box I bought had three botched figures and rather than send me the individual mechs in question they simply sent a big bag of all 24 of the miniatures in the box...!)
