    It depends. Incoming item? May be a few weeks. Something in stock? Usually 1-3 days (no weekends tho)... sometimes they forget to send tracking info until a little later. Nomatter what you're gunna be waiting a few weeks for shipping. ShowZ is great though! A lovely service.

    So I'm guessing it saying "In stock" means nothing if it says [Incoming]?
    A little confusing. Though it does say "waiting for release" so it's a matter of when they're done with packaging, I assume.

    "In stock" is meaningful. "In stock" means that you can buy an item; its available for purchase. The same goes for POs. If a PO is "in stock", that retailer doesn't actually have the figure yet... they just have a space for you to buy. This is the same language used by many Chinese retailers in this space. I don't think it's confusing at all once you understand what you're looking at.

    Just did the same, had an eBay seller cancel and refund me for a recent attempt at picking up Fans Hobby's Purple Power Baser (Powermaster Optimus Prime in Shattered Glass colours)

    He'll do for now

    Now I'm imagining a Shattered Glass version of Masterforce, where the heroic Overlord and Zarak the White work to counteract the resurrection of Optimus Prime.

    Just got an email from ShowZStore that their TE01 delivery date is maybe end of month. When they get an exact date, they will post on their website ;)

    Absolutely had to grab the one from Showz at that price.
    I have the cell shaded version already but that’s practically just free in terms of 3p pricing now days.

    They got literally over 1000 to box up and ship out, its a hell of a logistical nightmare, I would expect it to take a couple of weeks before most get their shipping notice.

    Incidentally looks like they have just 27 left as of me writing this if anyone is still on the fence.

    First time ordering from Z (but have heard mostly good things).

    Suppose that was presumptuous of me.

    Nah, its a perfectly normal reaction, you bought it, you expect it, Im right there with you. But looking at the big picture they will have a huge truck show up and dump 1000 of these things on ShowZs doorstop and then ShowZ has to box up every one (and they pack well) then label then take to a shippers to be sent out, its a hell of a job.

    On top of all the other things that are coming in or have just come in. They got a lot going on right now, assume all hell is breaking loose after the China holiday earlier in the month. :)
