I'm curious as to why Miniature Market seem to be so far behind all other retailers in receiving certain pre-order items. Some games (e.g. Michael Strogoff) have now been available for weeks from most of my other OLGSs but not a sign of movement from MM.

Of course, these are pre-orders so I knew there would be a wait involved; as I say, I'm wondering whether this is just coincidental timings or...?

I waited a few months for Fields of Fire, but GMT admitted to a delay.
I'm awaiting ODD: Forest, but that's only recently shipped to ks backers after manufacturer delay.

I don't think there's anything foul at play.

I had a similar issue with MM recently for Coaster Park... they said their distributor quoted them a later date. My guess is they were getting screwed as much as their customers felt like they were. They did respond quickly and got it worked out, so I have to give them credit

Are you telling MM to release your order? One of their customer service staff mentioned to me that they required this on orders containing a hold.

I've run into this issue before. Both Whistle Stop and Santa's Workshop were in stock and being shipped from CSI nearly a week before MM started shipping their preorders. I emailed them asking about the delay and got an apology but not an explanation as to why they're always the last to ship out preorders.

Quirky. Just the other day I noticed CSI was a couple days behind MM on stocking a game I had pre-ordered. Granted it sounds like you're talking about a more substantial delay.
