F it, ordered a set from a store called Pack Turtle. Never purchased from or even heard about them before today, but they seem legit from reviews and they already shipped them. So if you’re thirsty for these like me and don’t wanna wait anymore on BBTS or EE, might be worth a shot. Extra 10% off for signing up for their email list.

Warduke's wings on his helmet make me a little nervous. They're made of hard plastic, maybe a little brittle. You won't have to worry about them warping or losing their shape, but they seem like they would be easy to crack if he takes a tumble the wrong way.

Still waiting on Wizkids for Grimsword and War Duke. Not sure why I preordered there. Should have gone with BBTS.

Oh ok. I posted that after seeing Grimsword listed as in stock at BBTS.

I placed an order after I saw this, but it's been sitting on the "waiting for package" status for a couple days. Did you receive yours?

Edit: looks like he's magically in my area and should be delivered tomorrow or the next day, woohoo!!!

Warduke and Grimsword arrived today. Not checked out the latter yet but Warduke is love, and king. Just a big, chonky beast of a guy. Absurdly cool.

Props to NECA, really looking forward to seeing more in the line if they’re gonna be as good as this.

Found Warduke at my LCS today (as well as the UM Dracula accessory set) and grabbed him.

He is amazing. He's exactly what I imagined I had in the vintage figure as a child.

I know why I ordered with them, they had preorder links up when these were first announced in September of 2021. I think I thought they might even be exclusives. Other retailers like BBTS, who I would probably have ordered with because I already knew them, didn't have solicitations in place yet. And to think, at the time it felt like an eternity to have to wait for them until March of 2022...

So, those of us who ordered from the WizKids site definitely did so because they were the only place to open pre-orders for figures at the time, and it seemed perfectly safe to do so since WizKids is a subsidiary of NECA - so this was really just ordering directly from the company making the product. Should have known that Neca's own internally owned website would be the last vendor to get their hands on the figures and the last ones to fulfill pre-orders (sigh).

Someday I'll have my Warduke and Grimsword.... some day in the distant future.

I ordered through Wizkids and I'm not real concerned. Warduke still hasn't come in stock at BBTS or Deep Discount. I suspect he'll show up at all those stores around roughly the same time, and once he comes in stock, my order at Wizkids for Warduke and Grimsword will ship. I can wait.

They are def in stock at BBTS. At least Grimsword, because he hit my POL Monday and I shipped it. I am so excited to get him in hand, Warduke is perfect, I cannot imagine how much I will love Grimsword. :D

Good news, guys. I got tired of waiting for Warduke at BBTS so I went ahead and shipped my PoL.

That means Warduke should be showing up there in the next couple of days.

I also ordered from that Pack Turtle store, and Warduke arrived today. This guy is all types of awesome!
