Just got this email:
Thank you for signing up for the Frontback Books newsletter for Star Wars Vintage Action Figures 2nd Edition.
The book is currently in the proofing phase and the release will be slightly delayed. While the timeline is still an estimate, we expect to approve a final proof within a month.
If this estimate proves to be accurate, the book should ship back from overseas in the first part of December. Unfortunately, this would put the book in Atlanta, ready to be shipped, around the end of January.
We will begin accepting pre-orders over our website as soon as the final draft is approved. Many last minute additions have been made and the book has expanded by an additional 16 pages to an estimated total page count of 392.
Pre-orders handed in at Celebration 5
Discounted pre-orders placed at Celebration 5 have not been billed and will not be charged to the credit card provided until the final proof has been approved.
An email will be sent out prior to that time to notify everyone. If you would like to cancel an existing pre-order, simply email that request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pre-orders will be the first to ship once our primary shipment has arrived in Atlanta from overseas.
Getting Books Before Christmas
Once we have approved a final draft and have an estimated date of completion from the printer overseas, we will explore cost effective options for having a limited quantity shipped by air via FedEx to arrive before Christmas.
If we have a decent number of requests, we will make this shipping option available for all pre-orders for an additional fee to cover our exact added expense for shipment by air from overseas (estimated to be $10-15 per book).
Please contact us via email with any questions, concerns, or cancellations. We will be happy to help.
Thank you for your interest and your patience.
