WETA Sale - 30% off kits/40% off accessories/books/decals

Had not been to WETA site in a while and was happy to see that they are having a sale.  Just have to see if available at your area warehouse (US, EU & NZ) due to shipping cost.  Just FYI, not affiliated with WETA.

i just ordered the book "The FE2b Flies again," and my Weta dollars from previous purchases covered the shipping cost.

make sure if you order from Weta they have what you want at the warehouse on your continent. (or closest, i live in Thailand and so only order from their NZ warehouse).  shipping from the wrong warehouse will erase your savings.

WNW themselves offer more reasonable shipping rates.

I think Weta are getting out of the WNW business, their inventory is dwindling and they don't get new releases. that said, even if they discount their kits more steeply in the future, the postage from the wrong warehouse may still destroy the discount.

Glad you took advantage of the sale.  I bought a couple of D.VIIs myself (now sold out at Weta, and on preorder), shipping for two kits is a few dollars more, but three almost doubles the cost of  the shipping for two, you have to play with the shopping cart to see what works better.

WETA was the original distribution source, but now there are many.  My guess is that the amount of new distributors is making sales slow.  They had their sale for a long time, maybe all stock went back to WNW.

Isn't WETA part of Peter Jackson's folio?

As I understand it WETA  took on a sales role for Wingnuts but then Wingnuts set up an international distribution network involving retailers worldwide. WETA essentially scaled back its Wingnuts role, did not stock new release kits and then had a sale on its back catalogue stock.

Now the Wingnuts brand has vanished from the WETA catalogue and the web page says "not found" so we assume unsold kits went back to WnW headquarters stock?
