    Waiting sucks WORSE when you JUST miss the delivery truck by a few minutes because you were doing something else at the time.

    Ha, tell me about it. I ordered a bunch of those clear Rijie from Japan and they mucked up my order. Took me extra 2 weeks until my proxy got those, then I had to wait for EMS.
    Got them yesterday though, it's so worth the wait, that is, once I got it. The wait is so bad!

    Now, when is my next package due....*fidgets*

    You now what sucks more than waiting on a package? Having the package never arrive and can't track it down. Now THAT sucks.

    It all depends on what I am buying, most of the B/S/T stuff that I get is older stuff, and don't really care when it gets here (waited a few months for a Classics Ramjet from someone), but highly anticipated items such as MP Grimlock, the Henkei Coneheads, and Magnus armor (first run) made me a little more anxious. With the G3 trailer, I decided not to look at anymore reviews/pics/etc until I ordered it after my Credit Card period reset (like keeping that thing paid off). Of course it didn't work, cause every local collector seems to have it and has told me how great it is. Atleast it should be here in a couple days.

    Tell me about it.


    Ordered my 20th anniversary Optimus prime, waited 4 weeks for it.

    Apparently I didn't take the time to check the shipping date.

    Longest four weeks of my life.

    always have tracking, but sometimes knowing is worse when you cant do anything about it. iam waiting on mp-05 and add on kit etc. that i paid for express, but they sent it ground so know im watch it moving all slow when it should of been here today or tomorrow. the worse is never getting your package at all though and not having ins. or having to go through the federal case of getting your money back. hope everything goes well

    Hell yeah. Especially from UPS. At least in my area. They never knock, and I'm looking out the window constantly and never seen them but I always find the slip in my mail box.

    This is why I hate getting new toys via having them shipped. Unfortunately, I got on board too late for some sweet stuff. So now I get to be all antsy waiting for them to show up. It's like bein a kid and not having the ability to wait patiently for your birthday.


    Then again, i do collect toys, so obviously some of that impatient kid is still in there.

    I hate waiting, especially with no tracking number. It leaves you in the dark and you don't know whether to hole yourself up at home or go out. It sucks real bad when you don't have a car and the post office is miles away.

    Animated Shockwave coming soon, OH THE PAIN AND TORTURE!
