Sadly they shipped fedex instead of USPS... Fedex wont deliver on Saturday unless you pay for as much, so most likely will see it Monday.


I thought Fedex normally delivers on Weekends.

Looked into it, apparently only if it is Fedex Home Delivery will they deliver on a Saturday.

Apparently it was sent smart-post, which means it works with USPS, depending? I assume this means I could have gotten it today?
There is no delivery estimate, but it did mysteriously leave one of my local main sorting stops and didnt see a scanned entry point... I will just expect Monday and will delivery upon you all pictures.

You may get more accurate tracking by entering the tracking number on the USPS website.

I've read reports that SmartPost routing can be a bit wonky, but I've had better luck with that service than FedEx proper.

In my experience this is very true. I am just being lazy. It is 10 pm, I know I am not getting it today. The chance for monday is very high.

Now if my ems/dhl from china would only come monday carrying 200pounds of motors....

This was sent yesterday, so USPS doesnt even recognize the number. It is literally a 10minute drive from me, so it basically has traveled further to sort and get back to me then if I were to go there myself.

Edit: It is only 1.9pounds, so I fear I have not gotten lucky and won a life sized gundam suit.

But you'll still get that awesome walking advertisement...... that tote bag.

Isn't Gundanium alloy supposed to be light though?

I still haven't gotten my tracking number how did you get yours so quick? Actually crunchyroll is slow on my preorder also. -.-"

No clue. Maybe I was just local, or I ordered it swiftly? I kinda randomly happened upon it, so no way I was first on the order.

All depends on what it is. New things tend to come directly from Japan, and will take a while. Some things they stock here in Walnut, so they can get them out quickly. Usually next day.

Perhaps I was within the first 100 orders or something so they got mine together before the weekend. I imagine this week the rest of the people will be getting a shipping notification.

Well the figure had the status of "unshipped" for a month.

Well one great thing about the lateness of Crunchyroll is that, you forget about the package. And you get a surprise gift some months later.

Basically the same as supporting a kickstarter project.

No it's was the same as me preordering StarCraft 2 3-4 years early. (Like a total idiot.)

If you ever have a few things mysteriously fall of trucks, I am local and can help you out with that!

Haha!

Edit: Were these packed with any information regarding the individual? I don't remember if I selected any male or female box. I do assume most people that bought this are males though.

All I know is I want to make a millennium falcon cake now and smuggle something inside of it.
