5711-1r-001

Hi all!

How long could I expect to be on the waiting list for the 5711-1R-001 (if I can even manage to get on the list in the first place? ;))

Appreciate it!

Until the bubble bursts and every single person your AD knows who is more "qualified" than you or is willing to buy big $$$ worth of other unwanted trinkets gets his or her piece. I would not hold my breath.

Depends on your AD. Most ADs get 2 a year. If the economy is good in your country you can be looking at 3-5+ years. I've waited 2 years for my piece to come through. I believe I'll be waiting another 6 months before it's in the shop which would make the full wait at 2.5 years.

I think it depends on your country and what sort relationship you have with your AD.

I waited 3 weeks for mine.

My wife won a social media competition by our local AD and when we went in to collect the prize I remarked that they never answered my enquiry about the 5711/1R-001 I had sent them in 2016.They apologised profusely for this(it turned out it was to do with a change of staff),and a few days later asked me if I’d like the next one they were getting-which was due in 3 weeks time.
