    I have not used this shipping service myself, but I have seen others complaining (on reddit) that the tracking stops when it hits the US. It should get delivered in a week or so, but you're unable to track at that point.

    My understanding is that when hits USPS, there's a chance that the scanner doesn't pick it up, so the information doesn't transfer, even though the package keeps moving. Probably too many packages going through the system to ensure that all get scanned into the system. I've found that USPS packages within the US also "teleport" in the system.

    Would you happen to know if updates start appearing when it shows up in another country?

    Good lord.
    According to USPS Informed Delivery site, my "SpeedPAK"/non EMS shipped items from the 9/27/18 Ebay flash sale will finally be delivered this week, 3 weeks later. Normally it takes no more than 2 weeks.
    This is ridiculous. I never had this issue with regular ePacket or EMS even during flash sales or Chinese holiday rushes.

    Ordered 2 shoulder cannons for MP-17 Prowl back in late September (the Amazon.jp exclusive ones). As of the 9th of October, it's sitting in some sorting center in China. Should arrive around November 19th at the latest. Also, it's a new(ish) Chinese seller. It's a real gamble, but ~$10 for both plus shipping is worth it.

    Who is the seller?
    Did you get them to go with MP-17+ Prowl?
    If so, do you feel there's something wrong with the shoulder cannons that MP-17+ comes with?

    Seller: shushull578_3 on eBay
    The Listing: New Transformers Masterpiece G1 Amazon Cannon for MP-17 Prowl & MP-18 | eBay
    I got them for the regular MP-17; it's just a coincidence that I got one around the time MP-17+ dropped. AFAIK, it's the same cannons for both the Amazon.jp MP-17 and regular MP-17+.

    I presume that they ran out of the first shipment because of the sheer volume of preorders for this guy. Therefore, since I preordered in late Auguts, I had to wait until the second shipment, which still sold out!

    I have mine, though, so I'm okay with that. :)

    What's the longest time between a package being released from customs to being accepted by USPS?

    I've usually seen my packages released/accepted on the same day but this time it's been 3 days since being released but still hasn't been accepted by USPS.
