Based on his current schedule Roman should have the Usual Suspects shipped next year and the Amityville Horror Wood variant sometime around the 40th anniversary of the film.

Jesus you are patient.

The mindset of Roman to send this out 2 years late is just some next level stuff.
I complained 18 months ago. I think I filed a complaint with the CC company, but I think it was too late.

I have no idea why this was suddenly shipped. It's bonkers.

Remember how in Office Space they destroyed the fax machine that probably could have been sold for at least a few dollars? It's like that.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm a stupidhead. Whatever...
