Have there been any updates on the shipping of the aforementioned figures?
I pre-ordered on release in May, and I'm starting to slowly lose the plot after an initial release date of September last year. I fully understand that GSC delayed release until Nov/Dec last year, but it is now February and my order status is still sat on 'Paid, Pending Fulfilment'.
I have been regularly checking my order status, as well as the product page as I have never once received an update about delayed shipping times, but to no avail.
I saw an earlier post speculating a mid to late January postal date, but other than that I am lost.

I was wondering about Sakura too. I've noticed that Ultra Tokyo Connection is a bit slow sometimes. Hope she gets shipped out next week.

I will sigh with both of you. I've been waiting for this Nendoroid for the last 4 months as it was said on its initial release, which was Sept. Never really thought waiting for nendoroid would be harsh. It's driving me crazy to wait for it. I preorder last May as well. I never really have trouble preordering other figures, I just can't believe that preordering nendoroids and figmas are much more harder and frustrating than pre-ordering Play Arts and SH figuarts.

Saw a post from Good Smile that they actually released the item in Japan around November, same as Nico Nendoroid from Love Live... What bugs me is that on another online shop, Nico was available, but not Sakura. I don't know if GSC also delayed the shipments to the US, but I'm guessing one factor that is causing the delay is a possible port congestion or whatever.

I just read from the other post that it is due to heavy port congestion in LA that is causing the delay....

I'm just bummed out for waiting for this. I just couldn't cancel the order, CR already took my money, and canceling and asking for my money back is much more of a pain in a butt..

Don't worry guys, I feel you. I bought one too :|

As an update on this, we just got the figure in the warehouse *happy dance* So the items should be shipping soon!

I really appreciate your patience. I'm watching the news every day hoping they settle the labor dispute at the ports.....T_T

Considering you live in LA according to your profile, once shipped it's probably going to take 1 day for shipping.

^Still crossing my fingers...

Status changed to Unshipped/ Not yet shipped. Being hopeful though...

Edit: well would you look at that after 5 mins posting my orig post, they updated the status to Shipped and gave me a tracking #. ^_^

Now time to wait for USPS to update their tracking system and for the actual package...

If it's being shipped by FedEx SmartPost, it'll show up in the http://fedex.com tracking system before USPS knows anything about it.

They sent it via USPS not fedex smartpost for my package

Behold! Here is the 9-months wait since its initial pre-order last May.

Welp, I finally got her today, but the box had already been sneakily opened from the underneath and the magic circle is missing. I cannot be bothered returning her over that though.

Contact Good Smile Support and they should be able to send you a replacement part! Sorry it was tampered with that really odd :/
