Oh, and the box was only held together by the black shipping straps. Some industrious soul at CBSA had opened her up or something.

 

As far as I know, they're all like that. Mine was that way, and a few other people reported the same thing. I imagine it's probably faster than taping each and every box, but I have no way of knowing.

 

My shipping box was held closed by the straps as well. Honestly, based on the stuff that was printed on the sides of my box and how it had a bunch of tape all over it, including on the open side, I'm thinking that Reaper is reusing old boxes. Not holding them at fault with that or anything, but it was an observation.

For what it's worth, my brown box had tape as well as the straps. Strong tape too. It bent my letter opener that I usually use to open packages and I had to switch to scissors. My white Kickstarter boxes didn't have any tape, though. (But that's not surprising considering they stuffed non-paint extras into the boxes.)

Gaahhh! I just discovered via Facebook that LittleBluberry received her order on the 3rd. I'm so insanely jealous of my lives-in-Washington-state friend and her family right now... :-/

 

What's even worse is that I could *really* use the distraction right now as I'm on a medically required period of "down time" after having to cut a vacation short in order to undergo emergency gallbladder surgery. *sigh*

I *did* offer to have you put my address as your shipping address... The offer still stands! ^_^

Sigh. I know, I know. In fact, I'm contacting Reaper right now to find out whether trying to switch to a US address today would cause more disruption and delay than simply waiting it out or not.

I too have a USPS P.O. Box that I use regularly. Nevertheless I plan to wait out the storm calm. I don't want to throw any monkey wrenches into the works at this point. I also don't know if my order was one of those already packed, processed, palletted, unpalletted, reprocessed and repalletted. I'm sure not going to make them tear down a pallet to get at my box.

 

Besides… I've got a craft room to finish that's going way more slowly than I'd like.

This is the reply I got to my inquiry about possibly switching to a US address via the Kickstarter message system:

All of the domestic and Canadian orders have been printed. It would be much better to wait at this point. We are hoping to be done with domestic by Monday and be able to go back to shipping the rest again.


So, I guess we'll all just have to sit back and be patient for just a little longer. (Patience is a virtue after all).

@Mortanius, maybe you have an evil mailman? We used to have this one guy that seemed to have "the worst luck" with parcels. You should keep an eye out if you can.

 

That being said, did they ever solve the re-shipping issue because I haven't heard any news of it since and am mildly paranoid that I've been overlooked?:S

Lol not just stuff in the mail. I could buy it from a store and it will look perfect till I open it then I find t problems with it.

 

I am just guessing my bones will not be in the 200 or so that made it through before the rest got sent back to Reaper.
