I just placed an order for the Bristol Classics Culture and History Bundle, about which I'm very excited. Bristol is a fabulous publisher of all sorts of classics-related material, and I already have a number of their bundles on pre-order.

My question about this specific "super bundle" is related to the timing and price: will I need to wait until ALL of the individual sub-bundles are fully funded and ready to ship before the super bundle kicks in and I purchase everything? If not, can I cancel my individual, smaller bundles that are already included in the super bundle?

I'm not really keen on waiting for everything, especially since some of the bundles appear to be lacking in interest and would thus take a long time to go through the pre-pub system. Would it make sense to purchase smaller bundles (the Homer bundle, for instance), in the hopes that the dynamic price for the Super Bundle will eventually be lower?

The dynamic price in the past does not go in effect until the product goes live. The Bristol Classics bundle is the cheapest you will get it right now. If you ordered the master bundle (the 179 vol one) then you don't need to get all those Bristol prepubs as they are in the master bundle. Recently the Eerdmans Bible Study Bundle released and on the day it released all the collections (that were on prepub) released the same day. The best price was getting the master bundle and all those collections were in it. I didn't need to order them, I just ordered the master product. It's the same thing here. I can't tell you how long a product takes before Logos releases it. There are products I ordered over 3 years ago still waiting to be released. The Homer bundle (which I assume you are talking about the Noet bundle) has nothing to do with the Bristol Classics bundle just offered.

Once they accept payment, titles ship as they are ready. In the case of the huge bundles they may wait to take payment until the smaller bundles have crossed the line and are produced. Not sure if this will happen the first time a smaller collection is finished or if one must wait until all the smaller bundles finish. Dynamic pricing only enters in if you're looking to get a lower price. However since they all look to be new titles to the ecosystem, dynamic pricing doesn't become an issue at all.
