Still nice to have the red and yellow foamwinians!

Mine arrived yesterday, saw it today. It has several small dents, but I think I can live with that.

Blue and Green by the way. Maybe I'll get some pictures later.

Seems like hand packaging them takes quite some time as IV has limited manpower. I don't worry about my order yet. (I only worry about getting red & yellow instead of green/blue as I've got a red one already...)

Yay! Mine came today!

A couple of small dents in the tin, but nothing major. I'm happy. However, if anyone has a red and yellow DG that they would like to sell me, let me know, and we can work something out (I got blue and green, and would like a complete set). ;)

Mine arrived today, YAY! A few SMALL dents, but nothing I wouldn't have expected giving I use to haul big loads of US Mail and know how they treat them. Heres some screenies.

And too show the Dents are not bad at all. This was sent to the middle of US.

I hope that the replacement policy is simple & open, like "send us an empty damaged tin, we send you a perfect one & refund your postage". I can't see people wanting to post back the FWs and weight down the package with more than the damaged part.

Whatever happens, I am surprised at how forgiving people are. Many of these were preorders that didn't arrive anywhere near the release date, and then arrived damaged.

Perhaps everyone will get a follow-up complimentary package with cyan and purple FWs, or some big, black emo Evilinians...?

(Still mine hasn't even arrived yet (preorder 108) so I might yet be one of the lucky ones...)

I'm not that surprised and I think the reasons people are forgiving are threefold...

1. IV haven't done anything like this before and damage to the tins wasn't foreseen.
2. We all know IV, despite producing 4 of the best games out there, are minuscule compared to other companies and even trying something like the LE MW Tin is something to be applauded...it could have gone much more horribly wrong I suspect.
C. It's just a tin. :wink:

Pre-order: To order to arrange beforehand


The fact that they're pre-orders means nothing other than you ordered early. It says nothing about delivery date or conditions.
That said, we had access to the game three hours early and IV already said they would replace damaged tins. I don't see why you're complaining.
