    I can't decipher the many stickers on my seekers box but the amazon tracking says it shipped from Phoenix, AZ.

    No amazon box, no SIOC box, just labels slapped all over the packaging. Good thing I'm opening it up anyway but yeesh.

    Also it shipped, arrived at San Bernadino, CA at 4pm yesterday and arrived by 11am today at my doorstep. Prime shipping.

    That's funny, mine shipped from San Bernadino. I wonder how Amazon determines who gets what from where.

    My Coneheads arrived in the Hasbro mailer box and nothing else.

    Thankfully the box was unharmed, but I'm really not looking forward to stressing about the shape of any other Amazon exclusive box from here on out.

    Let's see if we can get a list going of not WHERE the Coneheads shipped from, but how.

    Mine came shipped USPS in a proper shipping box.

    Originated from Sparrows Point, MD. Scheduled to arrive Tuesday via UPS. It’s being dropped off at my workplace, so perhaps that’s why it went UPS instead of the USPS/Amazon most of you are getting.

    Well.... My Overload was out for delivery, but whenever it gets this late and the mailman hasn't shown up, he's usually hiding in a parking lot sleeping off his Saturday night instead of making deliveries. Hopefully the regular driver will bring it tomorrow. She's actually really good at her job. Sunday is always a dice roll if he'll even bother.

    My coneheads arrived missing a null ray. Is Hasbro good about getting replacement parts to you or am I just gonna have to wait and see if amazon restocks and get it replaced?

    I complained to customer service, mentioning how I receive relatively inexpensive items in a box, but a $60 collectible item has a shipping label slapped on with no protection. I also said I was very disappointed because Amazon is out of stock. I was offered 20% off. Rather than accept outright, I said I thought that was low. Then I was offered a full refund. Remember be nice to the CS rep, it's not their fault.
    The randomness of what is or is not boxed is so frustrating. Yesterday they sent me a pack of bubble mailers in a box. About a month ago I ordered a Dewalt vacuum that was shipped with a label. It wasn't overly expensive, but it was a $100 plus those Dewalt tools are in very distinctive yellow/black boxes which could be attractive to porch pirates.

    Just received shipping notification for my Coneheads. I don't remember seeing the packaging option when I put my order in so after reading this thread I'm nervous. I do like to save the boxes...

    So people are only being punished if they live in close proximity to a distribution center that can get them same day/1-day delivery by Amazon delivery drivers?

    Actually, while I said the original delivery date when I first placed my pre-order was Aug 19, I guess I did get an e-mail on Saturday morning saying it shipped, but with an expected delivery date of Monday. But yeah, I got a proximity alert from my Ring door bell on my phone this morning, and when I went to check what it was, I also saw I had gotten some alerts from Amazon that the package was out for delivery. So them showing up today was completely unexpected.

    But I do think if yours was already on the way, yeah, it would've at least been in shipped status.

    I got mine in the SIOC box, in pristine condition, and I only live 8 minutes away from the Smyrna Amazon Distribution Center here in GA.

    Gives me hope. Amazon told me that my order was gonna come it’s just taking longer because it’s non prime. So lesson learned! Be prime and do wishlist

    Well mine just arrived in the brown Hasbro mailer, which I guess is better than nothing.

    BUT of course there's a problem anyway. I think somebody else complained in here about it too? One of Ramjet's shoulder pins is somehow fired in at odd angle, meaning the chest can't sit into place correctly.. I have NO idea how I'd even begin getting that apart to fix it. I don't think you can.
