Be here Monday, July 16th at 9 a.m. PT (12 noon ET) and here’s what you’ll find waiting for you:

July 16th Monthly Sale*

Now that I'm getting my Red Rocket figure, maybe the next sub figure announcement will include a properly scaled Rocket Red (Dmitri preferably).

And while it is funny, at this point, should we really be surprised that Matty/DR messed this up?

That's probably what they call him....see Flash 1 as an example.

What really bothers me is I paid 12 bucks to ship the two figures to me, and it's going to be almost 11 days from the day I got my notice to when it arrives.

Really? I pay 12 bucks and you can't get it to me faster than that?

I pay for the cheap shipping option too and lately, it has been bugging me. I just received a package roughly the size of the box I received for my DCUC Flash figure from an online store in Texas and it came to me within days. I order a lot of junk online and not only do I get it shipped cheaper (using economy shipping), but it usually arrives the same week it ships. I know initial shipping prices can be costly for one item, but that's usually when you are using more premier shipping services like UPS or FedEx. CornerStone Logistics sure doesn't seem to be premier level to me! The shipping time certainly isn't and doesn't seem to justify the cost I am paying for shipping & handling.

I am patient on getting the items, but lately, I just feel ripped off for what I am paying to get what is usually almost two weeks of travel time for my shipment.

Well I paid for the more expensive shipping and mine got sent out a week after everyone else. Of course, it's supposed to be here in 2 days so it's certainly faster once DR gets their crap in order and ships my stuff.

We used to live next to a garage that did Motorbike repairs.

The boss there once told me he could order a part from Liverpool and the fastest they could get it to him was three days. A similar item from Tokyo would be waiting on his desk the following morning.

I never really understand why postage can cost so much.

Still, its cheaper for me than flying to the states every month to get my figures.

Red Rocket? See, when I thought we were getting Rocket Red I was annoyed at the lousy costume selection and the unacceptable scale issue created by the misuse of an oversized slot.

But, now that I know this is is some made up character completely, maybe I'll enjoy him more. Not. :P

Anybody have any idea what this and Starman are going to cost? I love that DR sends me a reminder that my card will be charged. I just wish they'd also send the total cost of the figures with it :|

I cannot hear the words "red rocket" without thinking of a very early episode of South Park.

Japan has really fast postal service if you choose the right one. I can order stuff from Japan and it'll beat Matty every time. Actually, it usually beats anywhere in the US as well. Kinda crazy.

Starman is $15 for subscribers, $18 for non-believers. Rocket Red is (I think) $30 for subscribers, $45 for non-subscribers. Don't quote me on the RR price, though.

You can be quoted, you're right...
