I blame it on the holidays. WS has been nothing but super fast other than this time of year.

Well I got an order from another china seller today that was shipped on Dec 5th.
Was not sent UPS but whatever china's airmail service is called as it arrived signature required from the USPS.

The hold up is always in the customs area when the items are entering the US. I have ordered a ton of the G1 MIB Transformers KO that are for sale in China that the Takara line has yet to produce( all dinobots, cars not released yet, reflector, shockwave and several giftsets). These items are sent with tracking numbers and it usually takes 2-4 days to get from China to NY customs area and then the item has to clear customs.. I have had itmes clear in a day or 2 and then I have had several packages sit in customs for 3-6 WEEKS. The issue is on the customs front, not the seller.

one of two things... either customs is holding it as customs will do on occasion... or USPS has not entered it in their customs system as received and it is actually in the U.S. and cuz of the holidays... itz got some lag on it update-wise. however.. if it spends a lot of time in customs in China...
when it hits the U.S. it tends to spend little to no time in U.S. customs.
which doesn't make sense but I've ordered so much that I've kinda
got it figured out (a little).
what you CAN do is send an email to USPS.com and they will tell you
EXACTLY what is going on with your package.
they have to. in fact you could contact them about your package each time and they HAVE to tell you where it is or why it is being held.
they MIGHT tell you to contact HK post... (don't worry they speak english)... also... boxoh.com isn't always right. It's just a nifty tool
to sorta GPS your packages. especially if you think someone is lying to you. (I wish I was WS... heheheheh... well... I'm not sure I wish I was
a female factory worker... but I wish I had access to hasbro factories).

Thanks for the response Gyre, like I said, I'm not trying to speak ill of Ws_toys, as I'm sure this is just an error of some kind. I've had great service with them over the course of probably a dozen or more purchases. Its just this specific one that is bogged down somewhere. I did get a response from WS, and it was satisfactory, though for their privacy I won't post it here. I just really hope they do arrive before too long, I'm as excited to try and make a Lowlight custom as I am to have the two figures, lol.
Looking for a couple of the Shipwreck figures from the 5-Packs. As well as both antennas for the Mauler.
