    Mine was sent a week earlier: "In transit, June 17, 06:49AM, Inglewood, CA"
    Still nothing.
    That's why I came back to this thread tonight.

    Well, crap. :( 

    I must remember that. Somewhere new to try. :)

    I haven't followed along...why are people swapping the shoulders and does it affect transformation?

    Same.

    Yeah. I don't know if that means we can expect our stuff sooner, or if our stuff got loaded onto a boat then sat at port waiting for more stuff (including @kshaps's Unicron). I'd say those of us in the June 17th batch have a minimum of another week before we see an update, plus a few more days of it moving through customs and Pitney Bowes' system.

    Totally. My wife will be disappointed with my July 26 birthday stash that I usually give her to give me!

    California's COVID shutdown was way worse than most as well, and is still going on at a limited amount. Here in Washington we have really strict guidelines for how many employees can be in a business at a time and how those businesses can operate and masks in public are mandatory. The numbers are worse in CA so I imagine this could end up being a Christmas present.

    You are most welcome. Happy I was of help. :) 
    Engineering like this always has me blown away. You gotta respect that!

    Don't think you should go on his review... Also, when one's fully committed to a competing (and expensive) product, it's sometimes hard to remain fully objective. Besides, his biology (lack of nimbleness) makes him perfectly inadequate to review transforming toys but I guess his opinionated voice makes him a top voice among reviewers out there.

    I'd like to see him tackle Bold Forms Gladius just for pure laughs. He'd break the thing in minutes.

    Missing Wheelie and Hot Rod took Blurr's place.

    The figure comes with additional blue shoulders and arms panels that makes him look more cohesive in planet mode, with the downside of being less accurate in bot mode. Transformation isn't affected.

    I'm always amazed that seemingly nobody has realised that the Autobots in the original picture are shooting forwards, not upwards. It's the low point of view that tricks people.

    My ShowZ order finally got off the boat and hit LA. So good to see some movement on him.

    Really? Maybe yours caught an earlier boat than mine.

    Inglewood is right next to LA, so I'm betting it's the same status as everyone else.

    I know. Mine still says “INGLEWOOD, CA 90304, Picked Up by Shipping Partner, USPS Awaiting Item -> Your item was picked up by a shipping partner”

    I never realized it and had to go look it up just now. Good luck getting a photo to look anything like that - that's some of the worst drawn perspective I've ever seen.

    That’s really wonky but you can do it, just have unicron in the background while the Autobots are shooting forward.

    Mine seems stuck in Indiana. So far not terribly impressed with the 'express' shipping option from showz. My MFT astrotrain which was sent their standard method was shipped after and looks to be arriving first. I'm starting to get worried because I haven't seen any movement in days
