I don't know where you got those UPS Canadian brokerage rates from, but here is what they put on their website, and what I usually see them charge.

 

Hate them so much. Rather deal with USPS any day.

Agreed on both counts.

 

Yet I'll still be happy to get new toys.

They're UPS's retail rates. Reaper's rates are something that they've negotiated with UPS for these shipments.

Don't worry, our hate of UPS fees will remain undying.

 

It's all part of standard Sith Lord training. That and dealing with telecom service over the phone.

At least I was only shaken, and not stirred.

I’m hoping that I’m helping @Reaper_Jon by posting his comments here as well. 
 

Jon mentioned that UPS didn’t like how they were doing the regular ships and that is what is causing the delay.

Wait. So now we managed to get UPS mad at us too?

 

That isn’t hard trust me. We have numerous ups picks up and deliveries at my work daily and they all seem to have an opinion on how we should load or help them unload.

You know, the fire giant was probably the purchase I was most iffy about - I don't know why, but just something about the pose was all flat and very undynamic, I think, to me - but man, I like that picture! Im regretting that one less now, there is way more depth to that then I thought.

Are they doing the shipping counter again? I don't remember if there was one last time. I thought there was but it was weirdly not obvious to get to, or I am confusing that with bones 3. Not sure.

I think they are just attaching a counter to Twitch this time around; it seems to be available during the livestreams.

 

... I am only just realizing now that I actually bought several transparent minis but never got around to buying the inks. Guess those won't be first on my list.

Kinda hoping to hear something about the UK hub starting their shipping process today, since it's supposed to happen early July/this week. And I'm feeling impatient right now.

Same Nunae. I'd love to know more. I can't imagine why nobody in the UK hub is updating Jon.

They have the containers in, you would assume they can share updates on their progress or predictions of what they're doing.

Heck, even a photo of an empty warehouse where they're setting up would be something I'd be very happy with.

 

Containers missing is information you can't get, but a general planning for something you have in-house in another department / hub, would be something I would expect to get.

 

That said: I'm loving all these photo's of people receiving their stuff!

The uk hub (according to a reaper support email i received when i emailed them) does not have their second container.

Went to the Kickstarter page and looked at the comments.  Word of advice: DON'T DO THAT! 

RANT WARNING!

Good grief!  The amount of entitled whining and sniveling is off the charts.  One person wants Reaper to compensate them because they're in Wave 1 but other people got their toys first!!  Another claims they took time off from work to camp in front of their computer to be sure they got Wave 1, but other people are getting their toys before them and it's not fair!!  Sheesh...  I also love the people that somehow expect a small US company to be able to predict how International politics and global events are going to play out TWO YEARS IN THE FUTURE, and have everything planned out so that they, the customer, are not inconvenienced,  Grrr...

Really? o.o

They mentioned last time we got updates there were a total of 2 containers, 1 was in, 1 was on the way and had passed the border checks and such.

I'm pretty sure it was said the container had arrived at the facility aswell, but not entirely sure on that anymore.

 

@Reaper_Jon can you share what info you have, or persue some information from the UK hub to supply us with more information?

      Another “large collection of miniatures” kickstarters, reminiscent of the recent Blacklist Games Fantasy kickstarters.

      I am tempted, even though it covers a lot of things we already have.

      Pixies, Wyrms, Demonicity – Three Mini Role-Playing Games
       
      Three ready-for-adventure mini-game boxed sets for your RPG game night, featuring the Tri-Stat System used in BESM Fourth Edition RPG.
       

       
      If you're looking for role-playing games that are concise enough to crack open and start playing right away, yet sufficiently robust and evocative to support longer campaign play as well, you've come to the right place.
       
       
      Welcome to the Kickstarter for the first three Tri-Stat System Mini-Game Boxed Sets – a new line of compact and complete role-playing adventure games that are compatible with Dyskami Publishing's flagship BESM Fourth Edition anime and manga RPG. Tri-Stat System creator Mark MacKinnon has distilled and customised the complete system into distinct streamlined versions for each of the three adventure games – targeting their specific genres and background settings in easy-to-understand boxed sets.
       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – it's time for your next great role-playing adventure!
       

       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – These boxed set RPGs are games of adventure, exploration, battle, heroism, romance, and imagination. Yet unlike in a traditional board game, the possibilities for exploration and action in these role-playing game are endless.
       
      Each of the three role-playing adventure games contains the following components:
       
      a 32-page full-colour rulebook that gives your group everything you need to play, with sections on character abilities, magical spells/paranormal powers, weapons and equipment, enemy encounters, items and equipment, and guidelines for integrating the Tri-Stat System game with the compatible BESM Fourth Edition RPG
      6 brief story scenarios so you can start playing adventures right away
      6 pre-generated player character sheet handouts, with game stats and illustration
      4 custom-etched dice specific to that boxed set
       
      You can pledge for one, two, or all three of these boxed sets during the Kickstarter.
       
      ...
       
      I know know nothing about these creators or the system, but I decided to back for Pixies entirely because of that picture of the corgi. 👀
