    With the listing removed from the store and my order history page still showing swerve as having 41 on backorder I doubt I'll see one now.

    Walky (of Shortpacked!) got his. He's in Ohio IIRC.

    I hope there will be a next shipment. I'm number 85 in the line.

    Thanks Airfox for the Walky information.

    I ordered on March 26th and got an order confirmation email. But now I'm confused, on my order history page, it says "No receipts found." Yet you other guys are saying your number 41 and 85 on backorder? Maybe that means mine has shipped.

    I just want my toys! *cries*

    My 'robot-in-a-reasonably-priced-car' (Top Gear reference) has arrived, I had no shipping notice or anything so don't despair if you haven't had one. FYI they're coming from Switzerland weirdly!

    Not having received my Swerve, nor any answers to my e-mails, I took the revolutionary step of calling the helpline...

    Aaaanyway. According to the guy I was talking to, they weren't really expecting the number of orders they got for this in such a short time. He said 'thousands'. Apparently they're working through the orders, doing the euro orders first, and that there's enough stock to fulfill all the orders. Mine, GMC002220, is apparently in processing and will be dispatching this week. We'll see what happens.

    What was the full number you called? I never got a reply to my emails, so I tried the numbers on their site and ended up talking to American Express Travel in the US...!

    It took a while but my small army of swerves has arrived.
    They come to about 17,50 euro's a pop shipped. Just a tad cheaper than a deluxe in stores ;)

    If someone has received their Swerve since the last posting, can you please let us know about it. I'm still waiting for mine. :(
