    manually note the backer number before and after you back the project

    i merely waited until the backer numbers hit 6968 before backing, and it was 6969 after i finished checking out

    But do you think it'll be an interesting market for 3Ps ? In the end, it's been released in quite small numbers compared to classic figures, which reduces a lot potential buyers + the cost of the figure itself for them to be able to work on it. I don't know how profitable it'll be.

    Should I call Fedex tomorrow if I still don't have a delivery date by then? This seems like an overly long time that my tracking has said "Pending", over 24 hours since getting my shipping email.

    I'm in the same situation. I'm not worried at this point. It's going to take some time to get these shipped out.

    If you've only been waiting 1-2 days, that doesn't sound like anything to be worried about. Just sit tight and know that your package is ready to ship. Could be that the warehouse is amassing a big pile to ship out all at once.

    That said, in my experience, FedEx is the worst of the three major shippers (USPS and UPS). The delivery people are considered subcontractors, not actual employees, unlike people who work for the other two. And maybe because the company values its workers as much as its packages, packages frequently get lost/misdelivered. The only package I've had in recent memory that was misdelivered (to a neighbor on the next street) was by FedEx, and it was scanned as "delivered." Thankfully, my neighbor's a good and honest person and drove the package over to me.

    Before she did so, and while I was trying to track down the package, BBTS told me that FedEx drivers frequently scan the package as "delivered" in order to meet their delivery quota for the day even if they haven't yet delivered the package. The package then gets delivered the next day (maybe).

    I also spoke with FedEx, explained what had happened, and they basically told me I was out of luck (this was before my neighbor showed up).

    That said, it's not like FedEx screws up all the time, but it's not the option I pick when I have a choice.

    If the 3Ps do anything it would in the mind set that it would be a smaller project and the price will reflect that; expect some sticker shock but not outrageous. A 3P maw fix will most likely be one of the first to be marketed. Second would most likely be the hands. Better and more detailed ships would garner interest from more than Unicron owners; it would gain interest from a broader amount of people. Expect things to start popping up on Shapeways over the next month or two as people get their Unicrons and start experimenting.

    FedEx now has my Unicron package.

    However, I paid for Express shipping, and Pulse screwed up sending it regular home delivery.

    That’s been happening to a few people, because now only essential supplies can be sent priority or something. Hasbro has been giving out refunds fo shipping, so you should be able to get your money back.

    For those who are saying they haven't seen movement yet, When you get your email, it says to wait at least 72 hours, 3 days! So if you haven't seen movement after 3 days, maybe you can reach out but I'd wait at least 3 days first. :)  Hope this is helpful. I haven't received my email yet but I saw someone posted this in the Appreciation thread and figured it might help.

    I've been getting other express packages from FedEx just fine, since late fall. I already e-mailed about a refund and also plan to nag them with phone calls tomorrow too.

    My fedex page finally changed to delivery date pending. That's something I guess.

    Mark my words, Shockwave Lab will have you covered. They'll jam an LED into any open orifice or aperture.

    I'm very much expecting a replacement right hand from them with a red LED and magnetic on/off switch, just for people who loved that feature on Armada Unicron.
