They have every other expansion ready to order, but for whatever reason the interceptor says it's not in stock. "Yes, I know it's not in stock because it's a PREORDER! PRE!" Any reason why that might be happening?

Sigh...

I'm sure it is just a glitch. Send them a message and let them know, I'm sure it will be fixed.

I'm not a fan of the new site, I find it harder to locate what I want.

The other reason is that that have already pre-sold what they were allocated from the distributor. Let them get through the weekend and they will probably be contacting the distributor for more allocation.

This happend at all the online stores between GenCon and release. Probably happened a few times before then it just wasn't as noticeable.

The same happened to Clash of Cultures. Seems the preorders for those are exceeding what they expected.

From my understanding, they haven't ordered any yet. So how could they sell more than they have?

Also, why only 1 expansion if that is the case?

Out of curiosity I was watching the Wave 2 stuff inventory during Black Friday. Places like CoolStuff and MiniatureMarket have had Interceptors "in stock" (available for preorder) like the other expansions as recently as Thursday (US Thanksgiving Night).

But both CSI/MM sold out pretty quickly with both sites' Black Friday sales. I'm sure they'll order more and have more in stock again before release, I just think a lot of people were probably just doing their pre-orders with the Black Friday discounts.

[Whether or not interceptors will be a significant presence in post Wave 2 Imperial squads, players certainly appear to be buying them as though they will be.]

dang I was going to check their site and forgot to look for any sales

edit - just checked the site and they still have them on sale and a 10% off the total order! sweet!
saved a lot when ordering those expansions I can't find around here
and of course ordered the preorders on a different order to get them later

they're all on sale!! Buy It Now!

So, there's a problem with CSI's website, and your first thought of getting resolution was to post here? Why don't you call them tomorrow morning, I'm sure they'll fix it pretty much immediately. Not sure what you expected the BGG community to do about it...

this is normal and there is nothing wrong with their site. they had it available for pre-order, but sold all their allotted copies. this does not mean that they will not get anymore, only at this time they are OOS of it.

I agree with there new site layout. Hate it, hard to find what I want. When a Pathfinder book was coming out, I noticed they did not have it listed at all. I called them and told them and they said someone forgot to put it up and it would be taken care of. It was.

Same thing happened with Wave 1 as well.
Guess people are just writing off the A-Wings as useful.

You may want to re-guess that... A-Wings are gone too.

FYI I have already pre-ordered the TIE Interceptors, so they did have them at one point.

This is one of the things I really like about CSI. You don't order from them and then end up without getting your item. They rather close the preorders.

I am sorry you ended up on the wrong side, though.

Guess all those going in to the showroom to kick the tyres on the Interceptor over the last day or so walked out with the keys to a brand new A-Wing when they found out they would have to wait till there were more Interceptors.

For myself I already have 4 of each waiting to arrive.

That probably explains why zearoth said it then.

I would be quite surprised if coolstuff wasn't able to fulfill pre-orders with two months of antecedence.

Hah!

Well, as I said, since the second wave isn't due till February, I would be very much surprised if CSI doesn't reopen those preorders.
