    Really, another crab? Can't we get a pet we would actually feel proud to run around with. The Guar was nice, but I'd much rather see something similar to the hound pet that was only available through Steam.

    I don't know, if they had made it the blue crabs from stonefalls, that would be kind of cool to run around with.

    As I wrote in a seperate (now closed) thread:

    Could you please decouple the ingame vanity pets from the plushies?

    While I would love to see vanity pets that are obtainable ingame, I would gladly pay a reasonable amount for some of them.

    What I, for one, do not want is the "made in [insert asian country without minimum wage- or environmental laws] plushie" that goes with it.

    I know not everyone cares about horrible working conditions or the environmental impact of hazardous waste being improperly disposed of - as long as it happens in a far away country - but I will not support that in any way.

    Also, I know not everyone is into vanity pets. There is no reason to discuss paying for digital items, or the inventory slots they take up.

    All that being said, I suspect I am not the only one who would purchase a guar or mudcrab if they didn't need to order the plushie at the same time, even if it's only because of the shipping fee for those of us who don't live in NA.

    I would buy a cat plushie just so I could destroy it in an attempt to satisfy my desire to shoot them with my bow in game.

    Just for fun: do you know how much shipping to Poland from GamingHeads costs? $40. Suddenly $17.5 from Bethesda store doesn't look so bad... No, scratch that, it's still terrible.

    Out of I don't know THOUSANDS of possibilities you have to go and do another crab? I supposed Monkeys are next? No one will pick up all these minor details, so our "Exclusive" crab will look like the rest.

    Are we going to see any new mounts here soon? I'd love to see that bear that one stable owner was promising. Or a guar. I'd settle for riding a guar. Forget the bear.

    As for the mducrab, mudcrabs are ADORABLE. Alas, I already have this one, as apparently I got one through a glitch in the early access/beta IE pack. I didn't even realize it was a glitch until just now, after looking it up.

    And, @sneak_thief, there is actually another monkey pet out there, similar to the Imakin given out. Apparently, like the Rufous mudcrab given out here, it was given out in error to a few of the early players. Apparently it's fur is darker. So yes, I'm assuming there will be a monkey.

    The plushie is adorable. But I do not need another crab for an in-game pet.

    How about a Banekin? Huh?
    Maybe one where when you squeeze his torso his eyes bug out?

    I would buy that

    Garbage! It would be better if you give us a "disguise", something unique. Not a pet that will turn in a pain in the ass if you form a group with some guys and all have their pets on. Mine will be destroyed asap.

    Where is my Razum Dar plushie? I want something adorable and cuddly not a bitey, pinchy, salty, tasty with mayo, hard shelled mudcrab. Do you want me to start trying to cook my cuddly toys in my sleep?

    Once again Razum Dar plushie please. I have no objections if there are any weirdos out there who want a plushie Queen Ayrenn - but Raz first please.

    Wow. Kinda a little pissed our Imperial Edition 'exclusive' Mudcrab is apparently no longer exclusive. Don't get us wrong, the plush is adorable and awesome, but still..

    Some may say this is a small gripe, but We've seen other MMOs in the past take exclusive content available only to supporters of the game and then sell it on the side to other players, cheapening the purchase of your previous supporters before. That never ended well.

    This is kind of a crappy and offending move. You've now cheapened those of us that purchased the Imperial Edition, especially those of us that purchased it during the beginning of the game and have been with the game ever since.

    The mudcrab we have now is a Nibenay, this one is a Rufous. Does that mean we can have two mudcrabs ?.

    So I'll have two crabs, a monkey, a scutter, a wraith and a dog :)

    Some of you are a little edgy and misinformed as usual. The imperial edition mubcrab is different than this rufous mubcrab. While they look similar, the coloring is different. Little known fact, some players at launch got the two different mubcrabs in their mail by accident. Therefore this mubcrab model has existed since at least launch. Thus it was easy for BETHESDA to just add this to the stuffed animal as a cooperative way to sell merchandise with these companies. Good business move in my mind.

    I ordered mine on the 15th. My invoice says it ships on the 21st. As of this morning it hasn't shipped so it looks like it will be sometime next week.

    @ZOS_JasonLeavey: Any chance for ZoS to contract with a manufacturer/importer in Europe? Shipping from the US pretty much doubles the price on all those small size products.

    Current Quote for France:
    Plush mudcrab: 20$
    Cheapest shipping fee: 17,50$
    => Total: 37,50$
    Wololo.

    Just checked and now they are saying the current "estimated" ship date is December 1st.

    Probably should have ordered from GamingHeads, their site says in stock.

    Well so much for December 1st shipping. I'll think twice before ordering anything from them again.

    Got this in an email today:

    Hello,

    There is currently a strike in the ship yards in San Diego which is delaying the arrival of a lot of our products. We are slowly getting some of our items out but as this is a big strike delays are happening. We have confirmation that the Enclave hoodies made it out and are on the way to us. The ship date was pushed to next week.

    I thank you for you understanding in this unavoidable instance and should you have any questions let me know.

    Thank you and have a wonderful day!

    Sincerely,
    Benita
