That is a perfectly reasonable question - other than Facebook, I haven't been online very much this summer. Sorry for the lack of communication - I just haven't had much to update.
I spoke with my caster last week, got the details worked out for the Terror Bird (and a few other items, including a restock of my sold-out stuff and the new stone age weapon sprues), and will be sending the greens to be cast next week. Probably monday (maybe tuesday). It will be a 4-5 week turnaround time on the castings, so I should be mailing all the pre-orders out before Halloween.
Which I know, makes it a "fall" release, rather than "late summer".
Thanks to everyone for their patience.
