    Just got this email from TFCC:

    We are still waiting on the Sideburn figures to arrive from China. They are in the United States but have not cleared customs. We are not going to give you an estimated date as we don't know when they will release them to us. As soon as we receive them, they will go to the mailer.
    As soon as we mail them, we will send out another email. Thanks for your patience as we don't have control over these different government agencies.

    No biggie. As long as I get my Iacon set, I'll be happy. Sideburn doesn't really have a home anyway since my CHUG shelves are torn apart.

    But when does Sideburn ship? That's all I want from this stupid club because I can't afford Ramjet and Cheetor and I think they should ship MY free toy first even though everyone else waiting on stuff from the club paid money for it.

    Yup, just read that email too. Glad they are providing updates on the status, even if it's not necessarily good news.

    Were the Ramjets and Cheetors held up too and we just never heard about it? If not, I wonder what's up with Sideburn to make him different.

    "Yes, we're afraid we're going to have to hold your products here for a bit."

    "Is there a problem with the toys?"

    "Oh no no, the toys are fine. But we'd like to ask you about the 12 tons of opium that was being shipped in WITH them..." :p

    Yeah I was wondering why Ramjet and Cheetor got here so quickly and Side Burn hasn't

    Figures as Side Burn is the one I want the most. *sighs*

    I'm actually rather impressed they are keeping us this clued in. Still I didn't expect it till august so I'm not too fussed.

    Agreed. I'm glad they addressed this head-on.

    Now they just need to get all that Canada-bound stuff shipped.

    I just hope somebody doesn't make the bright decision to hold off on shipping Cheetors/Ramjets to Canada until they get the Sideburns in. I need my freaking case of Cheetors in time for TFcon!
