Same here. Just says scheduled today, end of day.

 

Recently, though, Amazon.ca has been using UPS and this same method. Sometimes it updates, sometimes it just shows up with no info between "label created" and delivery. USPS has been the same way lately. The three back to back Reaper regular orders I had to make ranged from updates practically every time they jostled to zero information at all.

At least you're scheduled. Mine reads "A shipping label has been created". It's like surprise Christmas. You know it's coming, but which day is a surprise. Could be tomorrow...could be two weeks from thursday....who knows?

 

My USPS-shipped Reaper order was happy to track itself from Denton to "Canada" until it ended up on my doorstep and switched status to Delivered, which was equally useless.

I just talked to the useless tools at UPS. Please correct me if I am blatantly incorrect, but isn't it odd that Ontario and points east all see to have delivery information and/or their Bones yet western Canada knows nothing beyond that a label has been printed with a tracking number?

Mine were delivered to St. Thomas, ON 2 days ago, picked them up from my grandmas yesterday. Cut them out of the packages, but didn't look at them long, am busy lately.

Mine arrived 2 days ago, delivered by a UPS rep who rang the doorbel then ran away to her truck like a thief. Funny!

 

Every single mini and part is accounted for: Vampire, Force of Nature (yep!), Deep Dwellers and Cthulhu for myself as well as Kaladrax, Nethyrmaul and a griffon for friends. There was also an extra set of NOVA troopers (just how many of those were made in excess, I wonder!) and an extra Kaladrax girl.

 

Sidenote: Hot glue works wonderfully well on Cthulhu and Nethyrmaul after heating the joints a little, I assume because at a high enough temperature it melts and fuses with the plastic. Hot glue is flexible and can be heated/cooled over and over (!), which means you can overfill joints and touch up the area with the tip of the glue gun again and again to make it seamless, then come back a few days later and redo the job if you so desire. It didn't hold Kaladrax's wings and tail pieces very well (maybe it would with pegs), but this one was bought as a display piece so it's actually a good thing that the limbs remain detachable.

got mine Thurdsay, but couldn't open it until after work on Friday. I've been speechless ever since. Happy to report that my order was 100% accurate, although an error in my favor would have been nice.

Is it strange that UPS is crap? No...no it is not.

 

I would have payed extra to opt for another shipping company.

 

LUCKILY i'm in no hurry to to receive them, got lots of stuff to paint as is.
