    so im tracking my MP Hot Rods and they are stopping by every single state for one day so far before heading to the next state. often Arriving to the location in a few hours and staying there overnight until the next day begins to ship out again. Also going to random small places that would have no hope for hub delivery.

    What is going on here? So far it has stopped in Maumee,Ohio, Hodkins,Illinois, and Cedar Rapids,Iowa in the last 3 days. What is this pony express? I would have paid some cash on top of what I paid to get a little quicker delivery. Anyone else getting extremely slow shipping?

    Patience. HTS uses UPS ground, it's pretty crappy.

    It's funny, before I started collecting transformers I would have never used USPS to send anything, now it is the only way to go. Makes me realize how shitty UPS and FedeX really is.

    I guess our gov't can do a good job here and there.

    Well Rodimus IS a Winnebago (Space One), so I guess he wants a road trip?

    This happens to me all the time with UPS. When my package ships from the state below mine, instead of going straight up they send it on some crazy nonsensical route through multiple other states that takes several more days than it needs to.

    I agree...UPS has taken longer and has mis-delivered packages for my location way too many times to use them again.

    Incorrect. He's talking about the TRU MP Rodimus which is the Hot-Rod car only I believe. I think it's only the Japanese Takara version that is a Winnebago.

    Plus, I think they're slow because they only make right turns to save gas. At least that's one theory anyway.

    Not quite!

    Rodimus Prime is Autobot Leader, and Transforms into a Space Winnebago.

    Hot Rod is not leader, and turns into a sports car. No matter what they call it, TRU is selling Hot Rod to me, and that's how I'll refer to him.... "Masterpiece HotRod"

    Just my preference, so the way I see it, I'm not wrong......

    Not to mention their tendency to a) just leave packages on the porch after a single knock and bailing, or b) not even knock at all, just drive by and not do jack, only for you to find your package is now being held at the distribution center.

    I myself have noticed quirky stuff occur whenever I track online order. I live in Chicago, IL, and I once had an order arrive at a facility in Illinois, then be transferred to St. Louis, and then back to Illinois.

    My delivery route beats you all. 2 of my SDCC packages shipped from Ohio, both VIA UPS. The larger one was fully delivered VIA UPS. The second was delivered to the USPS in my town BY UPS, then will be delivered (today i hope) by USPS.... WTF sense does that make?

    yeah, I have the same issue with USPS delivering my package. That is TRU cheaping out on the shipping. It is cheaper to ship that way. So I will most likely not get my package till Monday now.

    Fucking TRU. They should have just delivered it USPS and save some headaches. UPS SUCKS!

    USPS... at least in my experience.

    Though I believe you can choose how it's delivered? I don't exactly remember, it's been a while since I've ordered through them...

    In my area it is Ontrac -- Not good news. I liken them to DHL but maybe worse. Their speed is pretty decent though.

    Just got mine 5 minutes ago. Was sent UPS ground, but last night it said transferred to USPS. So my regular mailman delivered it............weird. Oh well just glad Rodimus has arrived.
