Yeah so the other day I ordered this http://www.guitarcenter.com/B-52-60-Watt-1x12-Inch-Tube-Combo-103733606-i1170731.gc at a steal of a price. After trying one out at Guitar Center, I was more than impressed with the tone. A couple questions though: How long will it take to get here (I ordered it on Wednesday and it's Saturday now)? And do I have to worry about the delivery guys breaking a tube or two?

Ask the website about delivery time, we wouldn't know. It depends how close to your house the warehouse is. As far as the guy breaking tubes, you should be fine. I've never bought a tube amp new, but I'll bet they pack it up real nice. Tubes can withstand a LOT more damage than people give them credit for.

My Valveking was exposed to rain for about ten minutes and survived.

VKs have the electronics wrapped up nicely inside, I spilled stuff on mine all the time (before I traded it). I'd be comfortable leaving one in the rain for a long period of time, honestly.

Tubes are wayyy thicker than lightbulbs. There's a 6v6 floating around my friend's car, has been for the last few weeks. It's had gear loaded all around it, skateboards thrown over it, people sitting on it, and it's still intact.

Nope. I let it dry for awhile, though.

Congrats
Yes, that is a good deal.
You don't technically have a NAD yet
Doesn't GC offer the ability to track your order?
Make sure the power tubes are pushed in all the way.
Visually watch your power tubes while they warm up for several minutes.
There should be a nice somewhat blue and/or orange glow.
Anything real bright is bad.
If one tube is much brighter than the other then that is bad too.
