Didnt you know, they are on backorder although the show as in-stock.

Careful, cos they will lose the first one (all over the place) but still charge you for launching it anyway, then charge you again when they re-launch.

Oh yeah, they are coming from cdUniverse ...

At least it isn't coming from CDnow, or you could have my problem. I ordered a Space Shuttle and never received it, but CDnow claims they sent it. And since I bought it completely with coupons + FreeRide GCs, I can't even dispute a credit card charge.
CDnow refuses to either recredit my account or send me a new Shuttle. Damn, that was a lot of clicking gone to waste.
Piss on CDnow

fix html typo

Hmm, ya gotta wonder about someone who does not understand a discussion, and calls those who do understand it "retarded morons."

They're talking about the Space Shuttle, silly. I chose not to order, because it was not anamorphic. But I would not disparage those who decided to get one, anyway.

I got my space shuttle a week early from express.com, however, it exploded shortly after i tried to use it. Im trying to get NASA to pay for the hospital bills but no such luck so far

You sons of b******!!! Post when you use a coupon! I might have wanted that, but I was told that all the coupon could be used for was a toilet seat.

I'm sorry guys! I couldn't help the temptation to use multiple accounts to get several Space Shuttles; I did receive all of them but I tried to order again and they are now on back order.

That's funny. I got mine no worries and then discovered it could not be used in my region.

Aparently they're supposed to be used in region 14 (space)

I'm currently trying to return it. What gives?

I didn't buy a Space Shuttle with this coupon as I heard a rumor that a Special Edition Space Shuttle is about to be released as well as another coupon.

I got a refurbished space shuttle from NASAOutlet.com.

I haven't had a problem with it, but I'm concerned about take offs and landings. How thoroughly do they check out returned items? Should I send it back?

I don't want to lose money on the shipping if I'm worrying for no reason.

Thanks,

-S

When my Space Shuttle arrived at my door, I heard the box rattling.

Now sure, I could just get another Amaray Space Shuttle case, but dammit, I *hate* it when the monkeys at the USPS bounce my Space Shuttles around like that.

I got mine, but a tile had come loose. I called NASA and they said they would replace the shuttle, but they want me to pay for the return shipping.

Mongrels!!!!!

Boycott NASA

Got my order delivered today, but they stuffed it up again. It's the wrong shape to start with, and has got all this funny Russian-looking writing over it, with the almost indistinguishable letters - M I R.

Turned up in really poor condition. Seems like it has been knocked around pretty badly during shipping. Either that or they shipped me a 2nd hand unit.

Don't buy the regular Space Shuttle! Criterion is releasing a special edition, with audio commentary by Cape Canaveral, a Hubble Space Telescope, 3 bonus satellites, 2 aborted launches, and alternate landing areas. A must for Criterion fans!!!!
