Saw Tony from Robottoybase post this on Facebook.
They are based in Hong Kong right? I think it’s just the Hong Kong Post that is stopping flights
Hongkong Post - Press Releases (688)
Hopefully other parts of the Chinese mail system are still operating
i mean this has been a problem for RTB since china reopened. he only has options for 57 dollar shipping on his site. so as much as it sucks it is no big deal for me.
Based on shipments I've gotten from other sellers, I think it's just Hong Kong. Robotoybase has been limited to only the most expensive mail shipper for like a month now, which kept me from ordering as the shipping price was usually more than the figure was worth. But other overseas sellers like ShowZ have shipped to me with no issues other than mail being a bit slower than usual.
All China Sellers are having issues including Baba and Show Z, which now have posted messages when visiting their sites.
The issue is planes are not moving. Somehow my 5 packages that I've been waiting for a week are now moving so not sure if that's by boat or they've found a way to continue to move packages by air.
In addition, which makes me believe packages have a way to make it to the shores is the fact these same sellers are charging $7 shipping and noting when the planes are back up and running, that free shipping will resume.
I ordered from RoboToyBase recently actually. Used e express shipping, and the tracking number has it sitting in the Hong Kong processing center since March 23rd, should I be expecting a long delay?
I'm in a similar situation with packages not moving
My @ShowZStore Package hasn't moved since the 18th:
"2020-03-18 04:55 - Shanghai, arriving at Shanghai International Mail Exchange Station (via transfer)"
And my @bababobo00712 package hasn't moved since the 31st:
"2020-03-31 23:02 - Tianjin, delivered to air transport"
So hopefully, if they "suspend" new parcels from entering the system, they might catch up with the backlog
I was about to buy Fans Toys Sheridan from Robo and they didn’t let me pay for the shipping because something about not being able to make shipments to North America until April 15. Maybe all mail will start back up then? Idk, at least it’s a date to have in mind.
Uh oh. Guess my Sheridan and my MMC Jaguar will take a long time to get to me
Mine...tho not as long as most:
Shanghai, arrive at Shanghai Puxi Processing Center Processing Center
I would be fine with it if it was not constructor.....I do not like having a $500 figure mired in limbo.
That's odd. Since we're all locked at home, my gaming group decided we'd play our games through Tabletop Simulator on our computers. I needed a headset, so I ordered a Razer Kraken X USB on Amazon, but the seller was Razer. Shipped from Hong Kong on the 7th and it arrived today via FedEx.
Same thing with my SirToys orders.
One hasn't moved since the 29th, one since the 25th.
And I ordered three items from eBay that all arrived already from China. So I guess it’s just some areas.
From when to when? I got stuff prior to about a week or so ago. Was still getting packages, even through ebay throughout the spread of the virus in China and shutting down.
Sounds like you just missed it when airlines were halted.
I actually emailed with Tony last night. He basically told me they can't ship to the states at all right now. In fact, when I tried to complete an order into the site, there were no available shipping methods to select from.
He offered me the option of putting down a deposit to retain the items in my order until it was possible for him to ship them to me.
I ordered from two separate sellers from ebay...both from China. One on the 29th of March and the other on the 31st of March. The one I ordered on the 29th is in the states now and is still moving. The one I ordered on the 31st has given me the same "origin post is preparing shipment" statement on my 17track app. despite the seller telling me he shipped....soooooo, I'm not sure what to believe.
I wish I could just place an order with RTB now and pay shipping later when they have it sorted out.
My ShowZ order that shipped on the 8th shows on the 9th it departed the Hub. Usually when I see that from them it means it is enroute to US.
This shit is ruining my toys. Fuck you, virus.
I get to work in my underwear, not have to leave my house, eat all day, avoid my boss but, YOU DONT FUCK WITH MY TOYS.
