    Not sure but maybe the snowstorm earlier in the week delayed things.

    I ordered from Toys R Us before, and they don't really keep their promises regarding shipping times. However it will get to you (that's the good thing about them) so you'll get it eventually. Plus like thenatureboywoo said, the snowstorm may have slowed things down.

    I've never ordered from TRU... did they give you a tracking number? That can often give you a good idea of when you'll get it. Was it shipped FedEx, UPS or USPS? UPS and FedEx have decent tracking systems. USPS works, but it's not as good.

    if you log into the TRU site...there should be a history orders area...and there will be a link with the tracking info...click on the link and it will show you where your item is.

    i've ordered stuff from tru and they often take only a week or so. their warehouse is in the middle of the states like kansas and etc.. i'm not sure how the weather is over there, but i agree with nature that it could be the cause of your delay.

    I'll trade places with ya, buddy.
    I ordered my first TFs from China and other than the 10 days it would take for the seller to even ship the items, i have nary a clue how long it will take to get here.
    (Ordered from heerotoysmaker, his WST Prime and pair of Seekers.)

    TRU shipping is pretty darn reliable, even if their packing is sometimes iffy. my box really didn't have any packing material, but the items were in great shape.
