    Objectively speaking, after stumbling upon a couple of video reviews, I just appreciate that this thing actually TRANSFORMS in the most literal sense vs. Hasbro's upcoming version that really does nothing more than simply unfold a little bit after you fold back a hundred shell pieces to find an essentially already fully intact bot mode just crunched up for space. That's not a "transformation" - that's just a more intricate Kinder surprise.

    You shouldn't do that.

    I tried looking up my order thru PB's system, but neither the shipping number nor my order from ShowZ got me any results. What do you plug into the search engine on there site for tracking?

    Take it from someone who knows. @Mykltron is right. Do not dip into your savings. Save up a bit for the guy. Trust me, do not blow up your savings for toys. It's there for when you need it. One of my buyers remorse moments was when I plucked down $800 all at once for Utopia and Quantron when they first came out, it lingered for a bit, just save up the money and get it in the long run, Zeta is not likely to not make more of these. Especially with how popular it is.

    Same here.
    Mine came up when I plugged my USPS tracking number in here: Track packages and get carrier information from Pitney Bowes but unfortunately it's still hanging out on the boat or something.

    I find this site to be the best place to track items.
    Universal Parcel Tracking - Global Package Tracking

    You get to see the all the sites that accept that tracking number and you can use it to see the various services your package might pass through till it gets to you.

    I think there's a typo in there.

    I contacted ShowZ even Pitney Bowes website doesn't show any movement since the original ship date of 6/17. I paid way too much for this guy to not get him.

    How did you get a USPS tracking number tho? Did you not choose SFExpress shipping? If not, I guess that would explain how it was in USPS' system first, as opposed to now SFExpress having to pass it off to them after the fact.

    No clue. A USPS tracking number is just what showed up on my ShowZ order page.

    You can go to your local post office and they can track it for you. Showz recommended this to me and they actually can get more information than the usps website.

    Nope, just a cumbersome way of saying Zeta's gonna be making these for a while. XD

    ShowZ told me the current wait time is 38-40 days. So for all of us on the same boat it looks like mid/late August will be our delivery time.

    Mine shows that it was introduced into the pitney bowes network today. Guess I'll be seeing some movement this week.

    Interesting. That's not what they told me. This is turning into a nightmare...
