    getting mine on its way.. zeta pioneer. It will be good next to Waist Coat. The thing is dont play around on waistcoat. Do fix him and leave him as is. I had plenty nail hardening on those joints. And now he is perfect. With that head I just place not the front but back of the neck portion and he is sitting nicely with no issues. Again i strongly recommend not to transform him if you dont want to break him. Transform him at your own risks.

    How about posing and reposing? Any issues with the joints getting looser? Or is it just transformation and a few tabbing issues that are the main problems?

    just as long as you move them gently and slow not like vigorously. Nothing last forever with nail harderner. You will see flakes comming off if you do just re-apply again and let that dry before playing with it. Normaly i leave it for 3 hours to a day. If its still loose just re-apply. For me i apply 3 - 4 times

    :/ That sucks

    I just used some super glue on MMC Sphinx... Trying to fix the loose hips and ankles to convince myself I don't need the TE version :p

    superglue is ok. I dont think the joints will break. The plastic seems it can handle and the joints for the inner shoulder i think is metal.. so no harm with metal

    Be strong my fellow slow boaters. Having paid for express on unicron i can 100% say it only speeds it up by a week ish. It all ends up in the hands of USPS eventually...and they are just as bad/slow sometimes!

    Someone else on here told me it's not actually in Inglewood when they say that. It's written in a confusing way, but it basically means "we're waiting for the other company to give it to us" so it could frankly be anywhere right now.

    Sucks I know...I haven't had anything take this long to get to me in years. Shipping from overseas used to be a LOT slower back in the day. Hell shipping in the US used to be way slower! Now it's pretty fast and reliable with tracking and all that. I remember the days of getting a Transformer off ebay, having to go to the post office to get a money order, then sending that via snail mail, then hoping they send your package soon, THEN waiting a couple weeks for it to get to you, even if it was in the same region of the country as you!

    Have I given away my age yet? :p

    Lol!! I’m clinging to the hope that they just haven’t updated it. But it’s okay I gotta just be patient. I remember when ordering stuff was like a month wait.

    Here's the Pitney Bowes tracking site for anyone else stuck in Inglewood:

    Track packages and get carrier information from Pitney Bowes

    Can just pop in your USPS tracking number to see that status from FDR and PBS - both showing that it's just electronic shipping info received.

    There's also a big red warning up top that PB's experiencing significant delays right now because of the influx of packages using their network thanks to COVID-19.

    One will be for the items with batteries in. The guns, heads and stand base. The other parcel will contain everything else.

    This isn't new to me, but can be confusing to you if you're not aware...it means the receiving location in Inglewood received the notice that this parcel is in transit and to prepare to receive it. Not sure why they work this way, they could easily give you said similar tracking notice. X receiving location has received notification of your intending incoming parcels from overseas.

    Mine has been in the same status since 6/24. Patience is a virtue with this one.
