I have just spoken to Diamond and they have confirmed that product will be shipping to all retailers the morning of Friday 7th.
This impacts our processing time for the goods, we usually receive product 24 hours before the street release date.This enables us to count stock in, and pull all standing orders and report any damages or shortages.
We have a guarenteed delivery time of 10.30am -Diamonds freight partners do not deliver earlier than this, and it will take us at least 2 hours to break it down.
So, we will open the first floor at 1pm Friday, sorry for any inconvenience caused.
Still this softens the blow a tad...
COMING NEXT WEEK JANUARY 12TH!
Next week Wednesday release date!
