Mine was order # 1196, and I received mine on Tuesday...
Seems like it isn't quite in the orders received.

I guess I'm not one of the lucky ones who's Mini was being withheld until my CE was finished, because I got a shipment notice for the Mini, but no news on my CE =(

I was going to describe what I did to my mini to make the maze pin drop more easily, but after seeing how much a mini costs :shock: these days I doubt any sane person would put a knife to their mini. I made my modification before realizing this. Anyone interested can pm me.

Got my mini a few days ago.
No wonder Chris has had to put the price up.
It cost him 10 pounds to send it to me here in OZ

Grab em while you can boys and girls !

I doubt he is going to keep making many more as they are - after all - listed under the limited edition section.

I paid £10.50 for shipping for mine to the US. I didn't think to check the packaging (which I no longer have) to see what the actual cost was but I assume it was pretty close.

Anyway, for me at least the shipping cost was added to the price of the puzzle. Chris didn't "eat" that cost in my case.
Needs to be updated!

No .. eating postage he did not. (yoda)

But he does have to spend money on petrol, packaging and time to post them.
He eats that.

The Mini was initially described as a key fob and that idea appealed to me and probably to others as well.

It's been mentioned that it wouldn't be long before the finish and possibly the functioning would suffer if used on a key chain. I have a series of photos of what I did to my mini to protect it while on my key chain.
