Anovos FOTK Armor Delivery Possibility

Recommended Posts

Honestly I don't think that will make a difference. Until someone gets a shipping email none of this means anything.

Damn it! I ordered my kit with the TLJ bucket, guess I have to keep waiting..................................

I ordered both buckets, a white pauldron, premium neck seal and a basic kit. I have yet to receive a single thing. January will mark 2 years that I've been waiting. :icon_eek:

Yes, nothing new. Last excuse was the 5 month delay to change the bucks to steel and I have no faith they will make their Fall 2018 estimate.  

Even funnier and/or sad depending on how you look at it are the updates for their Kylo Ren costume updates, now follow me on this.....

 

 

  • March 9th, 2018: This item has completed production and is on its way to our fulfillment center. We anticipate receiving these items into our fulfillment center in March and have adjusted our schedule to Spring 2018 shipping to customers to reflect this.
Ok, great it's finished with production and on the way to the fulfillment center on March 9.  

 

  • June 10th, 2018: This Ensemble is currently undergoing safety testing and remains on schedule to begin delivery to customers in Spring and into Summer 2018.
Ok, June and it must have arrived  at the fulfillment center and is undergoing safety testing.  

 

  • August 23rd, 2018: This ensemble remains on track to ship Summer 2018 into Fall. The final approvals are currently in process and we expect these items to arrive to our Fulfillment Center very soon. Once a firm date has been established that shipping to customers will begin, you will be notified via a separate update.
  Wait, What? In march they were finished and shipping to the fulfillment center but now in August, 5 months later they are going to be at the fulfillment center very soon. This is a very slow boat.

 

 

Latest Update: September 4th, 2018

  • The production of these items has been completed this season. We are awaiting notification from our manufacturer as to when these ensembles will be loaded upon a ship to be delivered to us, a journey that may take several weeks. As it is unlikely that these items will arrive to our Fulfillment Center prior to the end of the Summer season due to this transit time, this ensemble is currently on track to ship Fall 2018. Once I have a firm date that shipping to customers will begin, I will notify you in a separate update.
  Again, What? These were finished and shipping to the fulfillment center in March, then August and now in September they are waiting to see when they will even be loaded onto a ship.

 

Damn, at this point Anovos get your stories straight. I haven't minded waiting from the start with them and still don't but you would think someone there would get their notifications and stories straight.

 

 I like Anovos but their communication is the worst.

I ordered the heavy weapon vest and neck seal. I have gotten the neck seal.

I have completely checked out. When I get a shipping email I'll allow myself to get excited, until then not worth getting my hopes dashed.

This is sort of where I'm at with this preorder too. Lately I'm seeing more and more people report that they bought "in stock" items and they're still waiting for the items quite some time later, some up to two years later. Meanwhile Anovos continues to offer deeper & deeper discounts on "in stock" items. I'm starting to wonder if they're having cash flow problems but I try not to delve too far into assumptions/theories like that. I just hope we see our armor at some point.

I agree with all above. I am still waiting and will continue to wait because it isn't something I have to have, if I did I would order from someone that is actually shipping. I do have fun checking the thread and the occasional jab at Anovos though.

 

The common theme here is that yes Anovos is painfully slow and there is always the question of if and when they will ship. The single biggest thing they could do to help their reputation is better communication and updates. We all knew there would be a long wait because that is how Anovos operates but 3 years is pretty long.

 

As the legend Gene Wilder put it.

As I expected because a lot of people pulled out they are now contacting people on their interest list. I signed up on their interest list under another email address when they first announced the FOTK kits.

Hello and thank you for being part of the ANOVOS family! 

I noticed that you had previously signed up for the STAR WARS™: Imperial Stormtrooper (Do-It-Yourself Kit) interest list on our website. I am excited to say that we currently have a reservation available for that kit and in anticipation of your order I locked in a spot for you! Because this kit is in high demand I can only hold that reservation for the next 48 hours, so please act quickly!

To finalize your order, I need to clarify just a couple things:

First, I need to know if you are interested in soft goods and an appropriate size (Medium, Large, XL or 2XL.) or if you are not in purchasing soft goods at all.

Secondly I need to know if you would like this purchase to be paid in installments as part of our customized payment plan, or if you would prefer to pay it all upfront. 

Thank you for your interest and I am excited to get this finalized for you!

I'm sure you noticed but it's worth pointing out that it's for their regular TK kit, not the FOTK kit.

They have had regular TK's in for a while now so I responded asking for clarification on what armor it was for, still waiting.

 

Follow up to previous email:

This is for the Classic Trilogy Imperial Stormtrooper armor, but if you were interested in the First Order Stormtrooper armor from the new trilogy, we can certainly look into that for you!

Regards,

Wonder what ‘look into that for you’ means, take your money and deliver eventually maybe one day :laugh1:

I got that email too even though I had signed up over two years ago, ordered, paid, waited, and then cancelled, then waited for a refund, ordered from another vendor, started building, received refund.

Again sad news guys

 

I'm glad your fine and sorry about the weather winter is coming over there I'm sure, and the FO kits are now due January-April 1st so I hope to hear something after the new year and the vests I'm told are still coming this season so they should be going out soon November 27 - December 21. as for any other info the team has been really quite about stuff they have yet to tell us here anything more sorry to say!

 

That came from the chat from Anovos 

 

 

Aimdate for delivery was September 2016 and they clearly missed that :D

That is actually the window they gave back in September 20th on the update newsletter, Jan-April 2019. THey just aren't smart enough to update their update page as it still has the old FALL 2018 window.

They told me that they are hoping to get the first ones out till Christmas and the rest till celebration Chicago. 

 

Its so crazy that they told us September 2016 was the date for the premium kits and the weeks after the pre order back in the day they told us that this much higher price is also because of the clearly earlier delivery compared to the Standard kits. 

 

Hopefully this will be the last delay for all of us who preordered

Did you want to go on their wait list?, I’ve just been offered a slot for FOTK armor but due to health issues I’m not in a financial position to outlay $’s at the moment. Apparently kit would be available at the end of Summer 2019. I’ve not responded to them as yet so if you're interested pm me your email address and I’ll forward that to them.

September 2019?  I hope that is for the next order window and not for the orders already pending. I damn sure hope they stick to their Celebration 2019 (April) date and aren't already stretching that another year to September 2019.
