The big question is given the lockdown is this actually going to appear on the 6 May?

It’s already been delayed twice.

Thanks to donations from members I've been able to move Planet Mondas to a faster server. But I'm still working on further improvements. Ad Revenue covers the server fees, but not my time, so if you like you can buy me a coffee, which will help fuel me! Thanks in advance! Mat Sadler (matjkd)

couldnt find it on base.com today, maybe they are sold out now? So I went with this one as 5 quid postage to Australia is hard to beat. Will see how it goes

HIGHLY doubtful. But it does seem there are very limited copies, or the retailers are being told its having a long delay but the public have not been told at all.

This explains why Amazon and Zoom took their pre-orders down a while back.

They must have an allocation and once filled that's it.

Other on line retailers probably kept the pre orders up too long without realising that stocks were limited.

I see on eBay sellers have it listed and it's going for crazy prices.

Clearly there is a demand, so why not do second issues or a non limited 'slim' release.

My Zoom order says dispatched, maybe one of the lucky ones.

My guess is they took more orders than stock allocated. Resulted in fulfilling on a first come basis, based on date ordered.

Looking on eBay there are clearly people preordering multiple copies to sell at inflated prices. All going in excess of £100, a week before release.

I do think it has become a cash cow to be milked via online traders. It started with the S12 set changing hands for up to £500.

It will only get worse as the BD line continues.

Received today. Just watched Talons. Always forget just how good it really is. And it looks great. The new FX work quite well. Luckily the rat is kept very much in the shadows so it doesn't look too bad at all. Slots in very well with the existing footage especially when it's chowing down on Chang.

Talons is my favourite, along with Assassin. Can’t wait to see it for myself - if I get my copy.
