    It was the 23rd June, although I was pro-active about my order. When I heard others had got there's I emailed him and asked when mine was going to be shipped as others had got there's and he said it was shipped that same day and got it a week later.

    cheers, I was getting ready to get annoyed if you'd ordered after me :laugh: but it was september when I stuck the order in so must of missed out on their first batch :(

    did email them last weekend and got an almost immediate response that it should be posted 'next tuesday' so was expecting some movement last week but thinking about it he may have meant this tuesday coming

    will just have to be a bit more patinet

    It does look good. Have they sorted the issues out with it?

    Mine should be here this week for Collectables direct.

    I've also found the pose he'll be going in too, if I can do it :laugh:

    Do they take payment automatically when it's due in stock? I haven't been contacted or had payment taken

    They send you an invoice via email and then you go into Paypal and pay it.

    If you haven't received the email, I would check your Paypal account anyway.

    Apologies for the terrible photos, I had such a hard time photographing this guy. Also, as much as I'd probably hate to admit it, I do see Evans in the sculpt from certain angles. It's in the eyes.

    Some things to be mindful of:
    1. The head/neck on mine wasn't firmly on, leading to some comedy giraffe neck. Push that thing down. Hard. Don't be shy.

    2. Really stiff joints, as well as the knee joints not being lined up correctly with the boots. I went to bend his knee and found it turned halfway around his leg. The arms in particular, are very stiff.

    3. The shield has a little clasp that can popped open with tweezers and makes putting it on that much easier. I believe there are some instructions on how to put the shield on properly, but being a man, I said 'fook that' and did it my way.

    4. If you're putting the revolver in the holster, angle the little pin up the way, it makes attaching it to the flap again, that much easier.

    5. Don't be afraid to pull the boots off and tuck those trouser legs down. If the lower leg comes off with the boot, DON'T PANIC! It just pops back on again.

    6. The shield is a fingerprint magnet.

    Hate the machine gun, the hands won't hold it convincingly enough, plus Captain America doesn't need no stinking shooter, so in the box it remains.

    Thanks for the heads up, mine arrived today. Looks great, but the new headsculpt is a bit of a let down from the protoype I feel.

    Thor stays with Odin, awaiting Loki.
    How about some sex appeal?

    You didn't get it today??

    Mine was sent by UPS yesterday & arrived today.

    I would probably assume though that they don't deliver on Saturday's
    Pretty sure they are a Monday to Friday operation.

    Hope your's gets there soon though...he's awesome :)

    No worries buddy...sorry to hear it's only been collected today.

    Honestly though the wait is worth it...the figure is immense & just so cool.

    You won't be sorry.

    Haven't tried it yet.

    I haven't got my cabinets sorted out yet so until I can get him setup in there properly & then I'll tinker properly.

    Until then he has joined the growing tower of Hot Toys in the corner of the bedroom ;) lol
