Well, my order status just changed to "Late May" = order cancelled. If I still decide to buy one my money will go elsewhere. I'm tired of Tower.

tower just emptied my bank account 30 min ago, i expect tracking number this afternoon, and i think its shipping from Nevada, so it should be here tomorrow, or Saturday (hmmm if the they come out Saturday, otherwise Monday will be the yay....) just in time for me to build it, and then let it collect dust for a month as i wont e able to drive it...for a month...

i ordered 27-Mar-2014

I placed my order March 31st, so it would seem I got bumped or passed over for whatever reason. Whatever it was doesn't matter, they'll not be getting my money.

Don't give up yet. I emailed them and they said they are still filling orders and to check with them Saturday to see what the status is of my order.
We shall see. I also placed a pre order with amain hobbies, as I have learned in the past that Tower is unreliable.

So did anyone preorder in April and get it fulfilled? I just feel bad for Hairless Ape if he did get skipped. But unless I missed someone post, it seems like all the preorders that are being sent are earlier March preorders.

Mine just changed to shipped a few minutes ago. For reference, my order was done on March 7.

Where are you reading Late May, my still says invoiced,waiting on product from manufacturer!

If you go to "your account" then click on "proceed to customer information centre" then click on "your order history" what does it say about your pending order?

For reference mine says:

(Invoice number) 17433661 23-Apr-2014 $.00 Invoiced, Awaiting Product From Manufacturer


If your invoice number is lower then mine your ahead of me, if yours is higher I'm in front, but I did my order yesterday as I stuffed up my first preorder by not completing it properly........

I ordered on April 12th. Mine says

ORDER NOW BEING PICKED AND PACKED IN WAREHOUSE/ORDER CAN NOT BE CANCELED

It also says
Estimate of when you will receive your shipment: 21-Apr-2014 23-Apr-2014

Sadly, I didn't receive my order between the 21st and 23rd, but maybe soon?

If true I'd love to know how many units were in the shipment. I'm sure that they have to ship orders to LHS as well as orders Tower got...would just be interesting to know how many were on the boat.
