    So I was expecting to receive a MIB Classics Ultra Magnus, Botcon 07 Dirge, AND Botcon 07 Thundercracker! But I got nothing instead! :banghead: 

    Tuesday (although I'll only be getting the Botcons) can't come fast enough for me!

    I thought waiting for Alt Swerve (which was also delayed) was bad!

    Nothing like the sweet torture of waiting for your new "plastic crack" to arrive. :drool:  It drives me crazy too.:D

    Waiting for the Target Deep Space Starscream for a week was a lot of fun. Then finding out they never even shipped it & it's now out of stock was even more fun! :mad  :mad  :mad

    I find the more you wait for things and think about it, the longer it takes. Just be patient and enjoy the cool toys you do have in hand until they arrive:)

    The worst is when something takes ages to arrive, then you find out you have to pay customs on it and you have to go and collect it yourself because they won't deliver.

    However, those new Bandai OSIAs were worth it!

    (Hey, a guys got to collect something until Animated comes out)

    Waiting has always been bittersweet for me. Yet it feels so good when the item(s) arirve safe and sound. Then the wait is forgotten as easily as an uneasy dream.:wink:

    I find the more you want something, the longer it takes to arrive.

    Example: The Tankor and Obsidian that I bought on a whim and wasn't that exited about took 3 days to arrive. The Japanese Predacon Wolfang and Battle Convoy I was so exited to recieve took 2 weeks to arrive. It's some kind of cosmic conspiracy.

    My wife tortures me with that. If I'm home, she's calls from the front door there's a box here, when there isn't, and sometimes she'll call my cell and do the same. But the one cool thing about ordering via EMS from asia is there's always that chance of a delivery on Sunday!

    So it figures... My mail comes at 9:30AM unless my mailman takes the day off. Now I have no clue when I'll get the Botcons today, if at all.

    I'm feeling the same way about a Three Stooges boxset I pre-ordered a couple of weeks ago. I just tracked it and it's about 3 hours from here. I know it's not Transformers, but I can't wait to get my Curly fix!!

    Happened to me. I bought something 4 weeks ago and nothing. I knew something was coming in for me this morning because this had tracking. Imagine my surprise when the parcel force guy came up to my door with 2 packages.

    are you going to share with us the mystery of what was in the other package?

    I get this, but mostly it's waiting for hasbro to actually release a toy I want.
