Same here brother/sister! I can just imagine Canada Border Security:

 

"Sir, we should alert CSIS! This company called 'Reaper' is sending massive quantities of boxes all of a sudden to all kinds of locales in Canada. This reeks of a drug smuggling ring!"

"Well, we will see about that eh?" *sips Tim Horton's coffee*

"What's in the boxes?"

"It say BONES right on the boxes, they're not even hiding it." :zombie:

"My god, it's a death cult!" :;,;:

 

[Sigh]

Same thing every KS, UPS/Customs/Canada Post are very poor in communicating who has the package at any time.

 

I'm kind of jealous that some of our American buddies have already received their stuff. Though I take some comfort that I'm not home until the middle of next week, so not knowing is kind of better than knowing my stuff is there and I'm not. I'll just pretend everything is still in customs.

Because of the delays and exorbitant shipping and sometimes customs fees, I frequently choose not to purchase items from US based manufacturers/shippers. It drives me insane how much delay there can be, and nothing is worse than finally getting your box delivered only to be told you owe $$$ for duties or else you don't get your package.

My box spent most of yesterday somewhere though it was scheduled for delivery yesterday.  USPS got the box 4am today and it's been loaded on a truck.  so, hopeful whoo.

Yeah. Canada has crazy import duties. I sold a set of bagpipes to a guy in Canada once and I couldn't believe the amount of tax he had to pay. It was something like 30%. That was $900 CAD on a $3000 instrument. Bagpipes are duty free in the US thanks to JFK. Now all you need to do is find a senator who plays tabletop games and ask them to make miniatures duty free. 

 

Japan has very sensible import duty if the items are for personal use. In 20 years living here I have only had to pay import tax twice. Both times it was a nominal 1000 yen charge.

Yeah Yeah I've heard it all!  You guys just don't want to make unboxing videos.  You just want to torture me!!

 

Thought about building a few more of them at lunch and taking pics.  Is that better than nothing? :)

We're wondering what happened to ours, UPS is still projecting delivery today, but they're also saying they don't have the box. Hmmm. Fingers crossed it magically appears on our doorstep...

 

Don't worry, it's a simple case of quantum uncertainty. They can't know both your package's location AND its expected delivery date at the same time. :B):

      No time for the usual, since I need to head to work.  There are timed early birds, if you want to save a few $$.

      Sod all to do with gaming, but I know we've got cat people with their own voids at home; and some of you might be into pins and need a Void of Blep of your own.
      Or.. heck, I'unno. Maybe you need void stickers or something.

      Hi chums!
       
      This is the latest Kickstarter project, expanding our fantasy range this time, and bringing light to the ones we have that might not have been noticed. Along with some super cool female minis, we have some brand new scenics too, and a whole bunch of add on bundles.
      I'll post more on the lead up, but for now if you're interested, could you click the "notify me" on the pre launch page and it will help the algorithms, and you know algorithms are the new gods!
