Alright, let's see here...where to start. This is my first actual order from Bad Dragon (not counting my adoption), and from what I've experienced up to this point, I'm certainly not going to be disappointed.
Toy: Large Flared Chance, Golden Yellow - Opinion: Rather than looking like a bright yellow, it looks more like a light shade of orange.
- Getting the box: "How the heck did they fit a 17" toy in a 12"x10" box?
- After opening the box: "Oh, I see. Not wasting space."
- After pulling Chance out: "Oh my..." O_O
Order process - 10/10
Of course, ordering is the easiest step of the process when getting a toy. After that, it's the long agonizing wait. Even if it was just under a total of 2 months, the wait seems like forever, and coming from a patient person, that's saying a lot.
Wait time - 8/10
Ordering near the end of the New Year's sale when there had been three sales before it (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas), I did expect a bit of a backlog, but really, don't take on more orders than you can chew at that given time. Sales encourage people to buy, but if you take on more orders than you can make, the queue is just going to keep growing and growing until either people get frustrated and cancel, or not order at all. I know Bad Dragon's got more crew on the way and hopefully that'll help speed things up for others waiting on their toys, but really, plan your sales before you go and toss them up at every major spending "holiday time". You may be tempted to do a sale on St. Patricks Day and offer shades of green for 10% off, but unless you can handle it, I wouldn't advise it.
I'm rambling...moving on.
Shipping - (On Bad Dragon's part) 10/10
Everything was packed in nice and neat, and as stated on my first impressions, was rather surprised because I was expecting a larger box than what I got. XD
When I heard the knock on the door, I was making me something to drink, so I had to hurry to set it down to get to the door. By the time I had opened it (which was literally about 5 seconds after I heard the knock) the delivery guy was trying to stuff the box under our doormat. XD
I finished making my dinner and promptly secured the area before unboxing Chance, and the below pictures are what you guys get from it.
Appearance - 10/10
Aside from the color notation above, I see nothing physically wrong with the toy after a quick inspection. Keep it up, guys.
I'm finishing eating as I'm typing this up, so you guys get unboxing pictures. I plan on breaking Chance in tonight, so expect at least an expanded in-use review once that occurs, and video within the next few days, depending on whether or not I record the first use session.
