Do the 12 Days start on December 1st?

 

The 2nd.  Remember that this year you're supposed to be able to select which figure you want and not be tied to whatever one that day is, if anybody missed that.  

 

Edit:  Also, the Sophie release skipped DHL SKU 04000.  I wonder if that has already been reserved?  03000 was Kyra and Lavarath.  I've been waiting for SKU 4k for a long time, very interested to see what it might be.

Are they gonna offer the buy them option again? That was so handy & well received last year. I hope they do it again.

Is that a new regular thing, or just temporary?

I really hope not. I’m not going to order paint until late spring, because of the freezing weather.

I hope not! I hate limited edition paint! If it is, hopefully there is enough to survive till the 12 days start next month.

I'm really hoping it sticks around.

The solution to limited edition pait is to buy more bottles of it... 

Not when it's released in the middle of "winter has started" season.  Ordering in more just means risking more...  It's what frustrates me about the xmas paints.  I want some of them, but there's no way I'm spending that kind of cash to risk it freezing in transit.

I just order enough that Reaper uses a bigger box that won't fit in my postbox. The mailman then leaves an 'ovesize post' note and brings the box back to the nearest post office for me to collect later...   

See?

Ordering more is good for more than one reason...

This only works if there's no delays in transit - which is good, for those it's good for!. 

 

Unfortunately, i know that, in my case, UPS shipments spend a night sitting in a trailer on a tarmac in Syracuse, waiting to make the transition from the distribution center there to ROC. And it was 28° here last night... :-/

 

And Reaper always makes good! I love that about them. But I'd rather not put them through the hassle, and me through the annoyance, if I know that there's a good chance between, say, end of October and end of March, that my paints are going to spend a night in sub-zero temperatures at minimum (not counting the transit time itself, just the time it spends waiting for a truck to pick it up). 

 

I took a risk last year, and got lucky - but it was also abnormally warm last year, with even overnight temperatures over freezing. This year? Not so much. I'll keep my eye open, weather wise, but...

Hi everybody, I'm a new user after pledging in Bones5. Please bear with me, I'd start with a question :-)

 

I was ready to confirm an order this morning (didn't pledge last year and I'm waiting for most Bones4 retail every month, plus all of those Sophies!!!) and I see both the 12 Days free minis as well as the usual Bones Black ones I can choose from. I know it's Christmas :-P but is it right? I mean, N xmas minis plus X bones black promotional ones in a single order? Has it been done before? Or do you think it's as website update problem? 

 

Yes, I sent an email to Reaper support, but I received an out of office till 12/8 automatic reply. I forwarded it to another Reaper business email account, but still waiting for a reply. So I thought I might ask the veterans around here while I go in an F5 loop on the website...

 

Thank you.

 

Edit:

P:S. of course I did not read the home page news. It's Christmas :-))) Sorry for the useless question.

Don't worry about it, it happens.  There's generally a fair bit going on and information sometimes scatters across multiple channels.  Don't feel bad asking about something you're not clear on, better to get an answer and know than to be left in the dark.
