Everyone should have received a UPS tracking number via email if you leave within the USA. All International orders also went out.

Thank you to everyone who pre-ordered. Enjoy your sets!

Greetings...

What an unexpected cool surprise! Not only did these ship early I received my order today...*Woot*...

I have only just started messing with this new set, but here are my first impressions...

The good stuff:

- Each piece arrived in perfect condition, all of the felt is in place, and they look overall really great.

- The designs of the consoles in particular are stunningly functional. I cannot wait to use them. The usefulness of being able to set up free-standing consoles in most any location in a setup is impressive.

- The chairs and bunks look terrific and will be quite useful for a variety of scenarios in the Sci-Fi and Modern genre'.

- The rails are just plain Trek-tacular... In fact all of these pieces have a nice TOS feel about them without risking their suitability for a wider range of uses.

- I loved the little clear plastic dome that fits over the "Brass-colored nub" on the straight console piece. That was a nice touch.

Curious stuff:

- I was not expecting my order to arrive in two [DF packing] boxes. The nice thing about this is that each (1/2) set is more or less complete unto itself as they are duplicates. it's like getting two mini-sets. And will, thus, be easy to transport for those games where a full set is not required.

- This was a LES of only 300 pices (600 I guess if you count the double boxes) so I was sort of expecting an indication of what number(s) my sets were. Or a certificate maybe? Not that this is a gripe, far from it, I was just anticipating a numbered product.

Less good stuff:

There really is little [negative] that I might say about this set. It really is that great. In the interest of fairness--and to avoid coming across as a DF fan-boy without a critical eye--I did note that the paint on the "Cryo-beds/Sleeper-tubes" was a bit thin.

I am not sure what I was expecting there; Bright shiny white enamal? I dunno' but it looks a bit off-color like when you paint a lighter color over a darker one without priming first.

This is not overwhelmingly distracting however, and the pieces will be a welcome [and useful] addition to my collection.

In closing:

I really like my new DF Sci-Fi Gamma sets and am very glad that I pre-ordered. Especially being that this was an LES.

I still feel--maybe even more than I did--like these sets were really created specifically for the hard-core supporters of DF. To that end, I would that Gamma sells enough to make future "Mini-sets" possible.

Thank you so much to DF, and to Stefan in particular as I know that he worked very hard to get this set just right. I feel much DF love...

maj!

Sorry for your UPS travails Ghenghis....maybe it has something to do with UPS Drivers only being able to make right turns?

As a side note... To show i'm not crazy....
UPS always seems to make my packages take 4 hours extra, which turns into a day as it rides into Mass, they drive up 2 hours, sit there all day, then drive back to CT, and sit overnight....

HARTFORD, CT, US 08/07/2008 1:06 A.M. OUT FOR DELIVERY
HARTFORD, CT, US 08/06/2008 7:24 P.M. ARRIVAL SCAN
SHREWSBURY, MA, US 08/06/2008 5:55 P.M. DEPARTURE SCAN
08/06/2008 12:31 P.M. ARRIVAL SCAN
STRATFORD, CT, US 08/06/2008 9:43 A.M. DEPARTURE SCAN
08/06/2008 3:22 A.M. ARRIVAL SCAN
RICHMOND, VA, US 08/05/2008 3:46 P.M. DEPARTURE SCAN


This is the reason i hate UPS that i such a waste of time, add in the fact that the Shrewsbury one is closer to where i live than Hartford and it drives me batty that it goes there, then comes back, and if for any reason (and it's happened before) i have to go get it, it takes me about an hour and 45 mini to go out and get it....
I hate UPS!

I know DF has no control over this, i am just venting.

Got mine as well.

Three Sci-fi Gammas
Three River Sets
Three Lake Sets

I was suprised about the 'one set in two boxes' thing but really what does it matter? And as usual, everything arrived in great shape and it all looks fantastic.

Yay!

sorry if the 2 boxes bothers anyone...it was a creative way around "factory minimums" and was necessary in order to make it all possible...
