    You're welcome. To be fair, I didn't broach the subject.

    I’m mostly new here and I don’t proclaim to have any sort of authority on these matters, but my takeaway here is that whether you have initiated or simply participated in the discussion/debate, it is seen as an unnecessary escalation, toxic, or at the very least, uninviting.

    Continually tiring repetition over a matter that has no meaning, is what it is.

    I've wanted one of those Payload's for a long time - not secured one as yet. There is a few other repaints too including a yellow Crankcase and a blue 2007 Arcee The forklift upscale was another one I could never find too.

    It's fun to not that he's actually the same colour as his name sake I've always wanted one as that mould is used as a generic warrior design in the early Movie videogame. I think the implication is that anyone with a mono-optic face is a generic body of some sort in the Movie toyline.

    So I figure this is the best place to ask, I place an order with Sirtoys and I'm waiting on it to ship, how long does that normally take?

    I'll give you my experience. I've ordered from Sirtoys quite a bit. Yes, the proprietor Paul is shipping from China. He's also a frequent contributor in this forum.

    In the old days I took the cheaper surface shipping, and sometimes it would be almost a month before my stuff arrived. I live in Montreal, Canada, for reference. Basically all the cheap shipping is super-slow.

    Now that Sirtoys has an "on hold" feature (basically like the Pile of Loot feature on other toy sites), I build up a large enough order that I meet the threshhold for the EMS shipping method where it becomes cheaper than shipping piecemeal by a slower method.

    Most of my shipments from Sirtoys are about at least a dozen medium-large items, and my EMS shipping is usually around $30-40 USD. I have been pretty consistently receiving these larger EMS packages within 2 weeks.

    As others have said, you'll get one order confirmation when you pay, and MAYBE a shipping notice, but don't expect your tracking number to actually start working until AFTER your stuff already arrives. China Post seems to be pretty slow on that tracking stuff, I guess.

    I've never had an order go missing, and Paul has always been good when it comes to fixing small errors, marking parcels for customs, etc. I believe Paul's a native English-speaker, so communication is easywhen you contact him through the site.

    Hope that helps. :thumb

    That's not a criticism. I think most of us here would do the same thing.
