UPDATE 4: World of Warcraft Figures Series 6 Release Delayed! Again! Again!

World of Warcraft Series 6 Release Date Delayed
As expected the release of series 6 of World of Warcraft Action Figures are delayed again, I guess we couldn't have expected anything less since everything from series 1 was pushed back a couple of months. The new release date is set for August 25th September 15th which basically gives us another month to save all our hard earned cash. This set will feature a couple of big names in Warcraft lore including Magni Bronzebeard and the Forsaken Queen: Sylvannas Windrunner all making their debut in the action figure format of World of Warcraft. Here's to hoping they don't push the release date a couple more months because we're really itching to grab series 6 as soon as we can.

Update: Delayed again to September. Thanks Anonymous vyperalta for the heads up, you might want to put in a name so we can thank you properly next time.

Update 2: been checking local retailers and still no sign of Series 6 figures.

Update 3: a local retailer said World of Warcraft Series 6 would be available this week, most likely around Wednesday. No mention of price yet though.

Update 4:Just got Series 6! Check out our first shots!

Jonathan said...

why the heck are they doing this...are they redesigning them or what?

Jab said...

@jonathan - sometimes that's the case (e.g. Alathena's hair)... But usually it's manufacturing delays of some sort.

Jonathan said...

@Jab ...yeah...I see.

been waiting for the release of series 6 action figures since summer...thought the coin selection sets will be the first one out...trying to save more money to purchase the yet to release action figures within the year (as what stated in DC Unlimited websites and Geek Pinoy site). I apologized the anonymous identity in previous mail.

I can't find any official word yet, but it seems quite obvious that they have been delayed yet again. This series was due out in March originally I believe. They are no longer even listed on amazon.com... I am going to need an explanation from them this time if they are in fact delayed.

Jab said...

@vimmryan - the official site's already tagging it as available. I guess the delay is mostly on delivery to the retailers.

Jonathan said...

@vimmryan they're still on amazon, they just won't seem to come up through search...and they are shown as currently unavailable.

well, DCdirect's site has removed the on-sale date, so I guess this means it's officially on sale, right? Yet, no retailers are having any progress, they are all still in pre-order status.

I went and checked out a couple of comic stores...still no luck.

so they still have series 7&8, premium series 2&3&4, and the Lich King and the coins on the line...hmm...

Well, I have found some places listing Series 6 on the 29th of September. Also BigBadToyStore.com has series 8 listed now. Argent Nemesis: The Black Knight, Forsaken Priestess: Confessor Dahlia, Gnome Rogue: Brink Spannercrank vs. Kobold Miner: Snaggle 2-Pack and the set of 3. No pictures yet. Estimated release date May 2011

Jab said...

@vimmryan - i guess the shipping delays are the one to blame. Series 8 sounds great, I just hope we see official images soon.

Hi guys...I think this set will be out for sure on 9/29, Amazon has the item back on, and a toy company just called and told me they've got the confirm from DC...looking forward!
