    The head on my chrome blue is all chipped up from transforming to Dino mode. Swapped it for the clear beak/head and no chipping at all.

    Quick question to all but what tracking site are you using for all your Overseas purchases?? I know of 17track and Cne.com but just wanted to know if there's other reliable site. Thx in advance guys!

    (As we speak my Swoop is either on a plane/boat and is just circling China LMAO)

    A few random pics of mine:

    And with the man of the hour...

    Luckily no chrome chipping... but I've been super careful, and gentle. The ankles are so-so... and the left wing base hing is not super tight like the right (slight movement when tilting the figure back-n-forth)... maybe a drop of floor wax in to the hinge.

    But... the colors, size, stability, presence, overall looks... BOOM! Amazing. A stunner. A+ figure. No question a step above Fans Toys in the Dino-Wars.

    Question:
    Mine was "Processed Through Facility" at the ISC New York NY (USPS).
    I thought that meant it was RELEASED from Customs!

    However, that was back on May 7th!!!
    I was sure I'd see movement since then, but as of yet, NOTHING!

    So does Customs still have it, or is it that the reg USPS just hasn't picked it up and put it back into the delivery system?

    I WANT MY SWOOP! :cry

    It still has to arrive at a USPS Facility. That's when it really starts moving.

    Truth is you can't really be sure. I recently got my red chrome from ShowZ (luckily no water damage) at it hit NY customs 4/23 and said the same thing. Over a week and no updates. Finally on 5/4 it shows up at my local post office. I guess it just depends on if they decide to scan/update tracking, though this is the first time I've seen this happen.

    Most likely still at Customs in NY. When the next tracking hit shows up a USPS facility, you'll know it has left. I've had stuff go thru NY Customs facility in days... or a month or longer sitting there. I think it all depends if they pull a lot for inspection or not. Does it look suspect... hmmm...

    :eek:  :oops:  o_O

    So I just got another update from FedEx about 2 mins ago stating my package will arrive by the 17th! One more week, figured a few more days but I guess I can wait a week. Didn't take long at all I guess. Feelin like this is all kinda happening quick, maybe not but I'm not gonna complain. Not to mention if it arrives on the 17th, I have off that weekend sooooo, more time to mess around with the figure! Yeah baby!

    Those that have the metallic version: has there been any paint chipping or loose joints?
