    Yes, the page that shows up after you enter the tracking number should have a Estimated Delivery date near the upper right hand side.

    I'm sorry for my lack of understanding, but I'm not following. I don't have an option to put in my tracking number anywhere on the TFS-Express site.

    I can only look at my order history, which has been updated to say that is has been shipped. They do provide a link to track my package, but no information is available there and there is no "estimated delivery" option anywhere on the page.

    Here is the link: Track & Trace

    I think you can pay more for faster shipping if that's important to you.

    Here's one quote, there are others:

    Just look at a number of posts above yours. tfs-express are sending theirs out using DHL.

    And it's cheaper. 87 bucks shipped.

    FYI, they are at the Toronto TF Con this weekend. I'm sure they're still receiving shipments and sending out orders, but just letting you know.

    It looks like you went with standard shipping? I was referring to DHL website. I went with the premium shipping option which is via DHL. Standard shipping via SF Express doesn’t provide an ETA. In my experience it takes around 2 weeks to receive the order via SF Express.

    Hi, thanks for supporting TFs Express. By looking at your tracking number, it is "Economic International Tracked and Signed Service", the cheapest but slowest option. It usually takes 8~12 Working Days to US. The standard option, which is still shipped by SF Express usually takes 6~9 Working Days to US. Hope that helps.

    I think mine is stuck in Tianjin, China. Says it processed through sort facility on July 9th. Was hoping to already be in my hands. It’s EMS so usually has better tracking.

    Got him from Baba

    Even Baba has this already. Not sure what the delay is on the ShowZ side. Usually they are pretty quick in getting stock, it's just shipping that can be slow.

    After receiving La Hire today and having transformed it from car mode to robot mode twice, my early impressions is that it might be one of my top 5 favorite Transformers toys of 2019 so far. It looks great in both modes. The transformation has a lot of steps but is fairly logical and no parts get in the way of each other. I did have a pretty had time getting it back to car mode the first time, but I think I have since resolved what gave me trouble (orientation of the hip joints), so I think the transformation has the fluidity of Unique Toy's Challenger (probably my favorite toy of 2018).

    I'm not a fan of Bayformers at all, but I love good robot toys and this is definitely one. Another homerun Bayformer release by DX9/Unique Toys in my opinion.

    Baba shipped mine and other people’s here on the boards on July 5th. So this means he got them before then. You can’t really fault ShowZ but their supplier of the figure.

    This overall tho hurts ShowZ since this turned out to be an amazing figure and people want it ASAP. I would say wait and be loyal to the place you ordered first. But obviously if you cannot wait and you have a chance to get him, you do you.

    I am waiting on my Titan Beast Voltron Figure from ShowZ that is supposedly coming out this month but unsure. Don’t think that has been released anywhere else tho yet. Even if it was, I would keep my preorder with ShowZ.

    It’s a damn toy not a life saving cure to a disease. People should be able to wait a little bit...

    So....anybody with bad QC so far? I’ve been a huge supporter of Unique Toys until Challenger. I preordered Challenger, and my copy had the problem where the rear smokestack part is too tight, and mine broke off during transformation. I received replacement parts, but I have no idea how to get out the broken nubs and put the replacement parts in. I also needed to sand down the peg in the shield. It would be one thing if my copy was the only bad copy, but these problems seemed pretty common.

    And then there’s a version 2 release with these parts fixed and better paint. Of course, I don’t think Uniquetoys should NOT fix a product in a later batch, but the version 2 had better paint, which surely wasn’t impossible to do with the first version. I felt really burned.

    So, uh, yeah, back to La Hire. Any QC problems?
