    i've found shipping out of China has been pretty much normal for quite some time now for the past year and usually takes only a few days. i find processing packages landing in Canada, clearing customs, then finally being picked up by CanadaPost and delivered has been hit and miss and always takes longer.

    My BMB Skyfire (KO Dragoon) has been sitting on this status for almost 10 days:

    I googled the status and it's apparently a FedEx thing after a package leaves customs. But I only have the China shipping tracking number and the last-mile USPS tracking number. Neither show any movement and the China tracking number turns up squat with FedEx. Anybody have any suggestions?

    Finally saw movement on this today. It's so weird, I have two packages coming from China, Skybreaker and the BMB oversized Bumblebee Prime, and both made it from China to US customs fairly quickly (under a week), got released to the USPS shipping partner a few days later, and have proceeded to sit around for weeks. I wonder why the US side of things is so much slower.

    I have the same thing in Canada right now. I have 3 packages that have been scheduled to be delivered all week but they never get on a Truck to go anywhere. They’re just sitting with no sign of movement but they got here pretty quick from China. Don’t really know what’s up.

    Same here. Glad I’m not the only one. Have 3 or 4 things that arrived Stateside early May. No movement since.

    hmmm… eBay SpeedPak + CanadaPost has been ridiculously fast for the past few packages for me the last month or so. all around or under two 2 weeks, and some surprisingly around 1 week. :D  i've even had some deliveries made on the w/e, which never really happened before except during the xmas season. o_O

    Yeah, my order from Bombusbee that came by 4PX was the only quick order I got and it showed up on a Sunday. Canada post seems to be the slowdown for me lately.

    I just read there is a shipping container shortage in China. Part of the problem
