Default When will Car Wars 6th ed be available at my FLGS

In other words, when will it be in the retail sales channel?

A ballpark would be fine.

I just want to know when to ask them to order it for me or when I might see it on their shelves.

Thanks!

There is no scheduled release date. We will open preorders next month.

Not every item will be offered to distributors. Many of the titles will be Warehouse 23 only.

Yeah plus I'm in Australia and I believe we're supposed to get it 3 months after the US does. Just been watching those games online and getting pumped for it.

That was pre-pandemic scheduling. At the moment, we have zero ideas of how long it is going to take. We cannot stress enough how the global pandemic (and so many unexpected ripples) has completely made a wreck of international shipping.

Working on pre-orders this morning. We're on track to open pre-orders next week. Minis are pre-assembled, but they do not come painted. Shown are painted samples of the cars packed in Miniatures Set 1.

We keep getting messages asking about a retail release date. There isn't a date at the moment and, even when there is, not everything will be offered through our distribution channels. Only these items are scheduled for wider release:

* http://www.warehouse23.com/products/...ue-slash-green

* http://www.warehouse23.com/products/...d-slash-yellow

* http://www.warehouse23.com/products/...niatures-set-1

* http://www.warehouse23.com/products/...niatures-set-2

* http://www.warehouse23.com/products/...niatures-set-3

* http://www.warehouse23.com/products/...niatures-set-4

You can find all of the games expansions and accessories here: http://www.warehouse23.com/products?...D=558399748-sb

Curiosity question, why aren't you offering the full base game?
