    my fansproject causality figures supposedly shipped yesterday, 4/14/11, but the tracking number still shows order processed, ready for pick up. Other people have said theirs show as being en route. Never had any issues before.

    I emailed bbts, but they were closed for the weekend.

    Don't you think you're overreacting? You waited one day after the item shipped and already you're worried if there's a problem. I can't imagine your reaction if ordering from Japan.

    This has happened to me before. In my case, the USPS missed the initial scanning when they picked the package up, so the tracking info didn't get updated until a few days later. I'm willing to bet it's the same with you and if that is the case, then you have nothing to worry about.

    This is normal. gettting the "order has shipped " email only means they notified UPS electronically. Its still in the warehouse waiting to be picked up.

    There is a sense of panic among the fandom lately. Although if you never ordered from BBTS I can understand.

    Yeah. USPS's online tracking system is not really tracking. Its delivery confirmation. Sure it can act and look like a tracking, but I've had several occasions where it says something like "received tracking number", but I've already had it delivered. DC for USPS is solely used to verify delivery of a parcel, and is not meant to be like UPS, which is live up to date tracking.

    I actually had stuff that appeared at my house before it even showed on the USPS site.

    I understand the worry, but it will be fine. I actually find USPS a lot better then the UPS/Fedex's of the world. Sometimes they get too much stuff and they don't list your Tracking numbers.

    actually, it shipped UPS. I prefer them to USPS.

    I'm not really worried, probably a poor choice of words. I know they are just toys, but I have become quite the avid collector. I just want them quicker. LOL

    BBTS can be slow sometimes when there's a crush of a hot item like Warpath. I got the email that my Warpath and co and the new FP stuff were in, hit 'ship my loot' Wednesday night. It didn't actually leave their hands until Friday and won't arrive until next Thursday (via UPS). Just gotta be patient, stuff arrives.

    I ordered my toy today and it hasn't arrived yet. The shop is only 3 hours away, it should be here by now right? I need it now so I can then make sure my kids have something extra forced up on them while they are still young.

    :rolleyes2

    Typically when I get a shipping notice from BBTS there is no news on the tracking for between 2-5 days. Then all the notifications come in one burst up to saying that the item has left the USA. Then there is one more saying the item is in customs then one more saying it has been accepted by the post office here. I go to my PO Box, End.
