It appears to be sold out - dang I missed the heads up. Have I missed out Rev?

Edit: ok well I had another go and got one. Thanks. 8 hours ago when I saw the heads up, it was marked as sold out.

Rev - somewhat weirdly I paid with PayPal. It never went back to your site. I checked my Pp balance and the money had been paid. Went back to your site and the page displayed was as if I hadn’t paid yet. I checked my account with you and it is saying processing. So I guess all is ok. Please confirm though.

I am showing the payment complete both on the website and on paypal. Can you send me a screenshot via email or facebook of what the website looks like from your side?

My thoughts:

MC Glamdring was 1000 Limited Pieces: did not sell out, they stopped production bc it did not sell enough.
MC Sting was 3000
Eomer Helm is 1500. I was allowed to pre-order up to 50 in the first batch and another batch is coming in a month.

Anduril is the highest selling UC sword. Chances are, this will be the highest selling super limited edition stuff. These are supposed to be in the $400 range not $4000.

My thoughts are I will probably get around 50 in the first shipment and so many people will cancel their pre-orders to spend $20-$50 more to buy it from a shop in their home country and get it months after I would have delivered, then leaving me with 10-20 of these sitting in my living room :D

You are under the 50 mark, so even if there were no cancellations, I am putting in my order for 50 as soon as they are available. I just don't see this being a limit of 100 or something ridiculous. Chances are it will be 1000-2000 edition size with multiple shipments. UC has already reached out to me to see how many people I have in my queue with $100 down. After I told them I have 54, they said they are going to increase their first run size. So hopes are everyone gets one.

And as I said, there is no risk of losing your deposit. I'm keeping all the deposits in a separate account until we know more so I can completely refund every person if necessary.

Put in an order... I predict you will get one with little trouble.

Lol, not any of you all of course! I have been getting a lot more people who deposit with me to guarantee their spot here in the US, then when BUDK starts shipping a week before I do, they ask for a refund and I cannot change my pre-order amount.

Altho' it is very cool and awesome and I love the plaque and banner too, :O I've decided to pass on it.
I have the LE one.... it is good enough for my collecting purposes.
That is, I am not a collector of swords; I collect Wall- Hangers from the stories of ME.
If I collected Swords I would have the MSSC versions.

But anyone else getting it besides Jash?
hahaha... To be honest. I'm still not 100% sold yet; even though I've probably been the most vocal about this sword since the announcement of MC Glamdring :O . I'm waiting to see what other changes will be made, the final prototype, edition size, and, most importantly, price. Being Canadian - I'll have to add in international shipping, converting $, tax, customs, duties, and maybe brokerage. I already own a LE and regular Anduril - so this version will have to really "wow" me in order to add a third.

That about sums up all my hesitations and procrastination on this into a neat package. Thanks, Jash. :thumbs_up

I don't have the UE Anduril, but I do have the LE, Narsil, and the Shards. I keep asking myself, how many versions of this silly sword do I really need? :crazy2:

Hopefully Rev goes back to using USPS instead of UPS for international packages. For all their warts, USPS remains the most affordable on my end. UPS are nothing but con artists in brown uniforms.

All shipping is back to USPS except Australians have the option to upgrade to UPS.
