Yeah honestly ANY improvement in communication, public relations, and customer communication would do wonders here. They need their own Al stat.
Don't we all!

True. I know absolutely nothing about this new distributor. I don't even know their names.

And... here's the thing... I'm pretty sure they not *not* supporting small business. It sounds like the distributor is making the stuff available to other retailers. They just might not be doing a particularly good job of it.
Despite their entertaining Mike's inquiries, I see no evidence of this. Technically, despite Bob's announcement, they have even yet to post them to Amazon US.

To be fair, we're not seeing evidence of ANYTHING, let alone whether or not they're supporting small businesses.

It's after midnight on the east coast. Technically it's July 24th. The links still aren't working.

Wait... Did they say the release date was July 25th?

Hi folks

Bear with them they are new to this range. They have an amazon shop is linked to them directly but this is our and the BBC’s official Doctorwhotoy partner in the USA and they have a lot of experience. They have specially set up this website for the doctor who toys ... might be teething troubles but they have all the new stock and the blue top USA exclusive (Please ... do not throw hands at me!)

I know Mike and others made enquiries but this was a deal put together long ago and through official channels so until the announcement was made officially there Was no way to comment Back on it, but I can assure you it was not a last minute deal and it’s been very carefully coordinated. As I say they are slightly new to the overwhelming requirements of Doctor Who fans and collectors so let them sort a few glitches and everyone will be ticketyboo

Al.

Yeah, I kinda let "exclusive" pass. Is that where the 13th variant ended up? If so, well, glad I'd waited!

(What else could it be? Ryan/Yaz shirts? A Dalek dome? Doesn't fit for the other sets)
