    If you see the word "return", the package is no longer heading your way.

    this is what it's saying as of this morning, so hopefully this means it's at least in line to get onto the plane, think this is the biggest convoluted mess that I've seen as of yet on a shipping tracker.

    Looks like I'm wrong. I would expect to see "passed security screening" instead. Do you have the screen in Chinese?

    Not convoluted at all, they are just trying to show progress at every step of the way. But usually it doesn't help for two reasons. First, the main flight is the one that takes the most time (at least for me). Second, the updates are sometimes delayed by a few days, so the parcel is not stuck at where you think it is.

    yea, that was the 2nd half of the tracking that's usually in Chinese, the USPS still has it in "pre-shipment", so, maybe I will get it before Christmas, lol. not worried to the point I think it dropped into alternate dimension, more just exasperated at the whole thing since I ordered from two other places (China and Hong Kong) at the same time and both of those shipments got here over a week ago.

    Ended up cancelling this because it was in germany and was going to cost 170 after all the shit. But I snagged one last night right here in the states for 90. Already ordered a set of kfc thundercracker hands for it.

    They slide right on. Just pop off the stock ones and take the seeker hands off the attachment at the mushroom peg. They use the same size mushroom.

    Thank you, that is very helpful.
    And no, I'm not being a smart ass, it is honest appreciation.

    And if you have Maketoys Downbeat, the articulated V1 Aegis hands fit perfectly on that figure.

    No sweat. Now I don't know if something changes on the new one. I'm specifically talking about the original.

    I use a black primer when I do this. Just mask and spray the back side of the window.

    emailed Baba, I know they can't "do" anything about it, just wanted to see if he had any information on what's going on. basically said China Post is in a total clusterfuck right now and to not expect anything in a reasonable time. as it sits the last tracking I had was from the 28th. hopefully once I get this guy it will make up for some of the annoyance of this whole "experience". in my own stupidity I have 3 more orders, from different places, coming in from China and Hong Kong, really hoping i see them before Christmas but not overly optimistic about it.
    Sorry for the whining session...

    you'd think we'd all be used to not having any sort of expectations from Nov on, but for some reason we just keep expecting it to "work out differently this year." I once worked for a small internet business & i know how bad things get, but i still get ansty as to why my packages didn't get to me within a week or so.

    it hasn't been "a week or so", it's been well over a month, with the first gap in tracking being 20 days, the most recent it hasn't moved since the 28th. I don't appreciate being talked down to.
