I don't know where you got those UPS Canadian brokerage rates from, but here is what they put on their website, and what I usually see them charge.

 

Hate them so much. Rather deal with USPS any day.

Agreed on both counts.

 

Yet I'll still be happy to get new toys.

They're UPS's retail rates. Reaper's rates are something that they've negotiated with UPS for these shipments.

Don't worry, our hate of UPS fees will remain undying.

 

It's all part of standard Sith Lord training. That and dealing with telecom service over the phone.

I’m hoping that I’m helping @Reaper_Jon by posting his comments here as well. 
 

Jon mentioned that UPS didn’t like how they were doing the regular ships and that is what is causing the delay.

Wait. So now we managed to get UPS mad at us too?

 

That isn’t hard trust me. We have numerous ups picks up and deliveries at my work daily and they all seem to have an opinion on how we should load or help them unload.

You know, the fire giant was probably the purchase I was most iffy about - I don't know why, but just something about the pose was all flat and very undynamic, I think, to me - but man, I like that picture! Im regretting that one less now, there is way more depth to that then I thought.

Are they doing the shipping counter again? I don't remember if there was one last time. I thought there was but it was weirdly not obvious to get to, or I am confusing that with bones 3. Not sure.

I think they are just attaching a counter to Twitch this time around; it seems to be available during the livestreams.

 

... I am only just realizing now that I actually bought several transparent minis but never got around to buying the inks. Guess those won't be first on my list.

Kinda hoping to hear something about the UK hub starting their shipping process today, since it's supposed to happen early July/this week. And I'm feeling impatient right now.

Same Nunae. I'd love to know more. I can't imagine why nobody in the UK hub is updating Jon.

They have the containers in, you would assume they can share updates on their progress or predictions of what they're doing.

Heck, even a photo of an empty warehouse where they're setting up would be something I'd be very happy with.

 

Containers missing is information you can't get, but a general planning for something you have in-house in another department / hub, would be something I would expect to get.

 

That said: I'm loving all these photo's of people receiving their stuff!

The uk hub (according to a reaper support email i received when i emailed them) does not have their second container.

Went to the Kickstarter page and looked at the comments.  Word of advice: DON'T DO THAT! 

RANT WARNING!

Good grief!  The amount of entitled whining and sniveling is off the charts.  One person wants Reaper to compensate them because they're in Wave 1 but other people got their toys first!!  Another claims they took time off from work to camp in front of their computer to be sure they got Wave 1, but other people are getting their toys before them and it's not fair!!  Sheesh...  I also love the people that somehow expect a small US company to be able to predict how International politics and global events are going to play out TWO YEARS IN THE FUTURE, and have everything planned out so that they, the customer, are not inconvenienced,  Grrr...

Really? o.o

They mentioned last time we got updates there were a total of 2 containers, 1 was in, 1 was on the way and had passed the border checks and such.

I'm pretty sure it was said the container had arrived at the facility aswell, but not entirely sure on that anymore.

 

@Reaper_Jon can you share what info you have, or persue some information from the UK hub to supply us with more information?

      A message from Secret Weapon:
       
      Big news time everyone!
      As many of our pledgers know, we need to adjust the Kickstarter - On the positive, we have a good amount of backers and we know that MANY of you are waiting to up your pledges. We have had a really positive response to the product itself, and lots of interest on the customer and retail side. We deeply appreciate this and your support.
      BUT - we have a good amount of backers who are opting to wait on their $1 pledge. This is entirely our fault. We caused this when we locked our core offering behind stretch goals. There is no single item that is core. ALL the options are core. We made it so that many of you had to wait around to buy what you already knew they wanted.
      That's a big boo boo, but it was made with the best of intentions. The system was set up so that there was no mandatory amount, and you added what you wanted and nothing more. We thought that this was better for the customer, but it quickly became obvious the vast majority of backers want jump-in points at set amounts like a usual KS... and weren't entirely sure about a pledge manager that was open during the campaign.
      So, what are we going to do to fix this for you?
      We are going to close the campaign, and relaunch it next week. That sucks and it's embarrassing. But ultimately everything else that happens is great for EVERYONE, because this is what happens next:
      1.) ALL themes will be shown and unlocked right off the bat. If you want Urban Streets or Infinity, you just go get it, no hoops or delays to choosing what you want. You also know exactly what is on offer.
      2.) There will be pledge levels: $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+). The 100 dollar + level will include a set of 3 weathering pigments (really really good ones too - Burning Sands, Dark Earth, and Rust Orange), and the 200 dollar + level will be the pigment set, and a set of 3 genuinely awesome paints. Secret Weapon's Rubber Highlight, Rubber and Tire Black, our most popular colors! At the end of the campaign you will use the Pledge Manager, as usual, to make whatever specific choices you want based on your KS pledge. The Pledge Manger will be available during the campaign for those that would like help figuring out a total pledge level, but that is optional, and you can wait until the end of the campaign to sign up.
      3.) Each of the $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+) pledge levels will have 3 shipping zone options
      Americas, Europe (NOT UK)
      AU, NZ, Asia, Pacific
      United Kingdom (NOT Europe)
      4.) Any extra themes that are developed during the course of the KS will be added immediately, no stretch, we just give you the option as soon as it is available.
      There will be 17 themes live at the time of launch, which doesn't count the licensed product from Corvus Belli and CMON Zombiecide.

      DCC Dying Earth
       
      A DCC RPG boxed set, officially licensed by the estate of Jack Vance. Adventure with IOUN Stones and The Excellent Prismatic Spray!
       





       
      Yikes, the resolution did not hold. I tried. Just click the link lol.
       
       
      Thinking about doing this one; while I found Vance kinda torturous to read, the world is fantastically fun. And I think it'd work really well with the good things I've heard about DCC, so I could give that a try in general.
