I have a pre-order with Amazon (or at least my gf does, belated Xmas present). We received notification that they are struggling to get stock. Does anybody have further details?

The status on Fantasy Flight's site has gone from February back to 1st quarter 2014, so it looks like it has been delayed again.

Many retailers and distributors have had trouble keeping up with demand for every X-wing expansion so far. I don't think Imperial Aces will be any more "limited" than other expansions. I'm sure FFG would love for there to be enough supply for everyone.

What I do know is that out of my two board game Amazon preorders to date, two were delayed by 3-4 months. For those keeping track, that's an Epic Fail Rate of roughly 100%.

I don't do Amazon preorders any more, I'm not stupid.

Sometimes retailers are able to make predictions, based on the release date of an item, as to when they might be able to stock it. I was notified in this instance by Amazon that the original despatch date they had given us was no longer valid, for the reason they were having problems confirming their own delivery.

Anyway, not a big issue, just wondered if it was a symptom of something moresinister.

You do know that a manufacturer delaying the release of a product has nothing to do with Amazon, or anyplace else that does preorders for that matter, right?

Of course I'm talking of delays after the product was widely available from other venues. Amazon just didn't order enough stock to cover all their preorders (and my preorder was over a month prior to release in both cases).
