    Never used them, and based on their ridiculously high pricing on many of the TF items they offer, I could see why not many others have either. Also looks like they've done almost no sales in the last year. Don't know how much of their current pricing is set to account for recent shipping fee increases, but the listings I'm looking at from them all seem like the pricing of someone who doesn't really want to get rid of the items but will if someone pays 2-3x what they go for?

    Was through the store, I got a hold of him via email eventually, says he's contacting manufacturer to see if he can get spare part for me.

    I wanted to check in with people’s experiences with tracking numbers that begin with RV#####CN coming from Shanghai? My stuff has been floating around for over a month and I wanted to see if that’s normal?

    Small going somewhere in China. Likely to be relabeled if it needs to go international. So most likely cheapest option.
    If it keeps moving you're screwed.
    If not i could be relabeled and untrackable.

    I'm thinking about holding off on ordering anything else from ShowZ site until their free shipping speed improves. Their free shipping to the US by literal slow boat service takes too damn long. I placed a couple of orders with him at this time last month. They've shipped them out but they're still on the boat with no update of them reaching US soil. Meanwhile my order from Baba's website was placed a week later and it was delivered last week. I also placed an order with @Uncle Billy's website about a week after Baba's and it's now in the neighboring state and should be delivered next week if not this week. In the meantime I'll stick with Taobao, Baba, and Uncle Billy.

    The most recent update is, “Handed over to air carrier” on May 31. With. A note that says, “Shanghai international mail exchange” and nothing more since then. I have a few packages coming over at around the same time and all of them seem to be stuck on this option.

    Just to give an update, I got my items from hzj401 on eBay and mascotzone on eBay . The extra cost for "expedited shipping" from Mascotzone wasn't worth it as it took 48 days to get to me, where the package from hzj401 took only 20 days. Still, very happy with both orders!!

    All the recent issues with slow shipping from both ShowZ and the Mascot group makes me wonder how much of it is directly related to coming out of Shanghai? We'd heard plenty of issues in Beijing recently, but they didn't seem to have much issue for Baba being nearby in Tianjin as of late, but I haven't heard anything very specific to Shanghai, and my only shipments from there recently have all been through DHL.

    My parcel from ty_dynng-8 has indeed arrived and I now have a ko mp-28 hotrod. Haven't got a ko in a while but I finally decided to buy this guy because to me he looked like the best hotrod and I was not disappointed, the joints on this thing are super tight and he has a nice group of accessories. The transformation was easy enough to follow from the instructions but I did find it hard to get the hood apart to move and I might need to shave off a bit to the tab that hold the backpack as it was very hard to get in. I even managed to get the KFC articulated hands from netclow but I don't think I have them on right as they won't allow transformation while on and limit wrist swivel? Still need to get some Toyhax labels for him but all in all very happy with this guy, the G1 hotrod was my one of favourite toys as a kid so it feels great to finally add one to my masterpiece collection.

    Before Covid that would mean within maybe around 60 days without updates from May 31. Today that would be the same from the moment it left the country.
