I emailed Curt from TFSource about the FansProject Superion Upgrade and upcoming (already out?) G3 Trailer. Specifically, I asked what was the cause for the delay and whether a similar delay would be expected for the G3 trailer. Here is his response, reprinted with his permission: We asked Fansproject about shipping some of the G3 trailers by air, but don’t believe they did. The Superion kit is at customs, as soon as it’s released we’ll start shipping out and there isn’t reason for concern at this phase. If the G3 trailer shipped by boat, it won’t be here for another month. Fansproject was to originally release these in the US & Japan at the same time, and take vessel transit times into account, so I’ve scheduled a meeting with Fansproject to discuss further details. If they can’t manage the release timing effectively going forward, we’ll work with our own freight companies as that should ensure we receive the product much more quickly. Our goal was not to disappoint you or any of our customers, so we’ll work with Fansproject on a solution that works for everyone on future releases and do apologize for the delay. I’m confident that in the future this won’t happen, however on the current shipment since fansproject manages the importing, it simply wasn’t an option for us to air ship. As a side note, anyone who has these outside of Asia is not buying directly from Fansproject and that is why they have them instock currently. We’ll update our site and work overtime to send out preorders promptly as soon as these new pieces arrive, as we do know everyone is highly anticipating this piece. As there has been considerable consternation surrounding this item, I thought people would like to know. It doesn't appear to be TF Source's "fault" - FP didn't ship via air despite TFSource's request; those that have it now already used a third-party distributor (from what I understand, it means a store like Toy Arena purchased their stock from someone in Japan. That third party, in turn bought from FP directly , then was willing to use a faster shipping method, air.). Please note I do not work for TF Source. I am simply a customer who had several items on pre-order, including the Superion set and G3 trailer. Hope this sets people's minds at ease. There's really no way to speed up the customs and the fed. gov.
