Crapola - I got an email saying my Shadow Stormies had gone to backorder - not what I wanted to hear. Hopefully they'll stock more so that mine can ship out with the other sets I ordered.  :speechless-smiley-004:

Well I can't blame them to be honest, I waited WAY too long to order those. Ticks me off though, my own tardiness bit me in the butt.  :fighting0072:

Pegger, it was your post in this thread that prompted me to order these:

http://www.snowtroopers.ca/forum/index.php?topic=13025.msg124961#msg124961

 I ordered about 2 hours after you posted and I have received an email confirming my order has been shipped including a tracking number.

Presumably you ordered before (or soon after) posting that these were available. Shouldn't they be first come first serve? i.e. Shouldn't yours have been shipped if mine was? Unless you didn't order until well over 2 hours after you posted about these. But I doubt that you would alert others to these before ordering your own, knowing how they would be likely to sell out fast  :confused0024:

For anyone else who hasn't been sent email, check your order date. If it is before mine (Apr. 19th 8:54pm EST) then theoretically you should be getting yours too if mine have been shipped. Tracking # says mine are almost here...


Also F.Y.I. for everyone concerned; I notice that these are up for order again on the site as a backorder item. It says backorders will be shipped Aug. 4th...maybe you won't be waiting very long or out of luck.

That would be my reason for saying  :sign0065:

I ordered these on April 19th - before posting....and only ordered 2... 

I don't understand their logic at times....

I checked and no email. When I went to my account, it said "still available".

Maybe they did shipp it, I will know when my friend tells me she got it.

my understanding is that there is really no logical process on when/how SWS decides to deliver these. The only thing I can think of is them processing "larger" orders first. There are people of RScum who ordered these the first day they were available and have not received them yet...

I received mine as well on Friday. I ordered one on the 19th of April, received a email Friday morning saying it was shipped, and it arrived that afternoon.

The package itself took less then 24hrs to arrive. I checked the FedEx tracking number and it was sent out Thursday evening, and it arrived early Friday afternoon, and the best part was no customs fees.

They send a bill later (usually 1 to 2 weeks later)

Why would FedEx get payment from some ppl upon delivery but bill other ppl later?

It seems they would be setting themselves up to get stiffed by billing you later, I mean, what's your incentive to pay if you've already got your shipment?

Anyway, received mine today, $10.50ish in PST, GST, RODC paid upon delivery( for 3 figures) ...



p.s.  Really crappy and negative for the site that they don't fill orders "first come, first served"

I don't know why - I only that that every time I get a fed-ex parcel, I get a bill from the 1 or 2 weeks later for the customs.

Hmmm, is that in addition to any money that you had to pay upon delivery? Have you ever had to pay upon delivery( for taxes etc.) and also get a bill 1 or 2 weeks later (for customs etc)? thanks. I'm asking because it says "payment received" now on the tracking site, so I would not expect to be billed more later...

Any idea what "RODC" is ? Is that the customs fees?

I've never been billed at the door. I'm not sure what RODC is

Just got the email today, saying they are shipping them.

And what I find a lil funny. When I bought them it said "shipped August 1st". If threw me off when people were getting them before August 1st. Well today is August 1st, and mind just shipped.
