    I ordered a deck G1 chactor playing cards on August second off of Amazon. They said that they should arrive between the 10th and the 16th. I contacted the seller the 22nd wondering where my cards are. The response I got was quote "Full refund, got lost in transit." At least I got my money back.

    What carrier Amazon use? The order tracking thing only lists Japan Post.

    Turns out there are delays in China due to the typhoon. Taobao's overseas shipping warehouse is experiencing delays in item processing.

    Can I ask something about shipping from Ebay? Just that I have no idea what thread to ask.

    I want to buy something from ebay. The item cost is no problem, but shipping to Canada is like $40 including import. So I asked a friend of mine if I can ship it to her house and I can pick it up when I go down there on vacation. However, the seller said it can only be shipped to my paypal address. But I've had pacakges shipped to my office and not my paypal address before. What do I do?

    Put your friends address in your Paypal account before you buy the item.

    Question about FedEx SmartPost. Tracking on my MPM-3 Bee says it's on FedEx vehicle for delivery as of 7:35 this morning, but underneath it says "scheduled for delivery next business day." And the top of the tracking page says Tuesday by the end of the day. Should I be expecting this today, Monday, or Tuesday?

    Typically Fedex will give your package to USPS and it'll come the next day. So I'd assume tomorrow at this point

    Have DX9 Powerglide coming and Spark toys War within Megatron coming. They both have been accepted by the post office in China. Wonder which one I'll get first?

    Going on three weeks with no progress on either China package, funds tied up and things are disappearing off of BBTS and TCP that I was eyeing and NOTHING decent at retail to keep me from doing impulsive shit. Not a good look.

    Well, FedEx missed their scheduled delivery day for me last week and as I was going away, I had to go to the depot to get them to hold it for a week, I still keep looking at the tracking which as per every day prior shows it waiting in depot for me.

    -Seller receives Terminus Giganticus part A last week.
    -No Shipping notice.
    -Email asking for an update has been ignored.

    I suppose i've thrown several grand at the them over the last 2-3 years? Apparently it's not enough. TG is the last thing i've on order with them, and i'm wondering if i should leave it that way.

    /Tired from a week at work.

    Taobao's EMS warehouse finally shipped out my KOs of MP Ratchet and Inferno. The monsoon from 2 weeks ago caused a massive backlog for items shipped via EMS.

    I held off shipping MPM-3 from HLJ to wait for another item to come in stock for combined shipping. Alright, no problem. Then I have to hold off because there's a scheduled moving date. And now the s.o.a.b tenant living in the house I'm scheduled to move into failed to deliver on their promise to move out by that date. By the time I move, the items stored in HLJ's warehouse will be past their 60 days limit, and if I ship the package out anytime now, I'm not gonna get the figure to my current residency before I move out.

    Goddamnit. Don't currently have the funds to expedite the shipping either. I've used up 52/60 of the days I can store my items in their warehouse. Any advice would be greatly appreciated for my predicament
