Just saw this on last weeks' Thunderbean Thursday on Cartoon Research. Looks like it ends on May 15. Odd that it wasn't mentioned on this site.

Uh, why not link to the actual pre-order while you're at it?

I'm a little confused by this... wasn't Flip the Frog supposed to be released BEFORE the Comi-Colors? I haven't heard anything about a similar pre-order for Flip, so I assume now that the order of these releases has been switched? Steve, could you fill us in here?

Yikes, creeping closer to 2 years on my Flip pre-order as well!
If you read today's Thunderbean Thursday, seems Steve is very busy this week with school stuff. Hopefully he'll soon have some free time to answer some burning questions here (as well as replying my e-mail on pre-ordering the Comi-Colors to the UK :P )

Oh! Thanks for the reminder! No wonder I didn't remember it... almost two years ago now. :S

This is where you want a "Like" button instead of a "Thank" button... :P

I'd like to order this but I'm getting sick and tired to wait everytime almost a year to get my package. Please Steve, any news yet? I get packages from all over the world and I have troubles only with yours. Please do let me know any update, I'm waiting from almost 6 months my last orders....thanks in advance.

Sadly, this is why I am no longer (at least for now) buying Thunderbean's Special Discs. There are just too many problems involved with actually receiving them. The last time I ordered some, Steve had to send me the package FOUR times because they (apparently) just kept disappearing in the mail. And when I finally DID receive them, one of the BD-R discs had severe playback problems. There needs to be at least SOME level of quality control on this stuff, despite the fact that they are mostly "bonuses" for members of this forum and Cartoon Research readers.

The choice as I see it is between acquiring rare items in the best practical condition or never acquiring them, ever. I have no problem with the length of time, because I've already been waiting my entire life for some of this stuff. I know they will arrive, and if there are problems they'll be resolved as they always have in the past.

sorry about any problems as always!

Andrea- I sent a package to you a while back, but hadn't heard that it didn't get to you. PLEASE write me and let me know what you have or don't have. And, if anyone got a bad disc, please email me and I'll replace. It's time off from the school right now and these days are all about catching up all this stuff and trying to get as many new things ready and together with quality as possible. Its often a one-man team here, but help is here for the summer, and that will help a lot!

Fleischer Rarities is done and has started shipping along with the bonus disc as of today!

I may have to take you up on that, Steve! I hate to complicate your day further, but I'm missing a few sets from the last year or so and I was unable to order this Comi-Color one because nobody got back to me with instructions on international postage. Never mind, though - I'll send you another e-mail shortly (subject line: "Comi-Color and outstanding orders"), and I'm sure things will work out in the end. I look forward to hearing from you, and keep up the good work!
