Default Blichmann vs MoreBeer Systems

I ordered a Blichmann 30 gallon TopTier system about 2 months ago and still dont have my gear (http://blichmannengineering.com/brew...d_modular.html). Further, I have no visibility into when it will arrive (evidently everything is backordered).

As you can imagine, I am pretty frustrated and am considering cancelling my order in favor of something else (like a MoreBeer Sculpture - http://morebeer.com/search/103473).

Any thoughts out there on comparing the 2 set ups? Should I just wait? Any other suggestions? I want to BREW!!!

Isn't the Blichmann like half the price of the Morebeer?

No, about the same based on my research (unless you go nuts and get the fully automated system).

Isn't there a 6 week wait on B3 systems?

The Blichmann is ~$920 no? The more beer stuff you posted was $3k+

That's the price for the Blichmann stand and burners which you are comparing to the complete B3 system...

I just don't see the point if you have a cooler set up. If you saw my deck top rail to deck to ground gravity system you'd laugh. None the less just as effective as a high end system. If I were spending money like this for brewing equipment it would be for a pico system.
