Dropping the Bass (and Treble)

dffa69b4-sIn case anyone was curious about the status of Bandai's D-Arts Bass figure (with Treble, naturally) at various retailers, tipster "Dr. Wily" has given us the lowdown on the current situation. For those ordering through ToyWiz.com, they've apparently changed their site to note that instead of the previously-stated July release date, their orders will be going out in August. Diamond Distributors' Previews catalog had a shipping date for August 28th, but their page now lists it with their releases that are to reach comic shops on August 7th (meaning they'll likely arrive the day before). However, Wily notes that "sometimes Diamond adds things to the early listing shipping lists that they remove the next week when the shipments actually ship. So, it may disappear from the shipping list by next week."

Finally, Amazon has been a bit perplexing on this front, as Amazon.com's listing reportedly said the figure was in stock earlier today, but now says August 3rd is when it will be available. It could be that they ran out of stock fulfilling their pre-orders, but we'll only know for sure if people begin receiving their Bass figures (with Treble) before August 3rd.
