    Figures lost in the mail?

    Hiya,
    Has anyone else had any experience with figures lost in the mail?
    I ordered a Clawful through the Marketplace from a very cool dude.
    The package had no tracking, and its been more than a month. Nothing on either of our end.
    Is there anything we can do? Doubt it. He's in Canada, I'm in Chicago.
    Still holding out hope.
    I really want my buddy Clawful and his goofy eyebrows . He's one of my favorites. Such a bummer. For both of us.
    Any ideas, or are we just dead in the water?

    Could be lost, or stuck in customs. That's sometimes the problem with US/Canada shipping. Sometimes it can clear the day it comes in, but I've had packages sit in customs for a month before moving on. Often this is also when package stop getting tracked. It's why I don't ask for tracking numbers. More often than not they hit the border and never get updated past them being in customs.

    He was sold by chubbyman, who in my experience is a really cool guy (despite this, i will still buy from him in the future). I paid paypal and he's offered to refund my money. If Clawful shows up on my end, I'll send him the money back. So that's all good. But just a bummer for both of us if he's lost.

    I sent a package to Canada march 11th and there has been no sign of it since. I'm in Baltimore MD and that's the last place the customs number tracked it to that was the 12th. After that nothing. The post office told me they won't do anything for at least a month.

    Funny you should mention. I recently traded with a fellow org member. No money exchanged but we made a deal to trade figures. I mailed him the figures on Mar.20th to Canada( from chicago as well) and they went to the sorting facility the same day and thats all I know other than he hasn't gotten them yet. I went to the post office today to find out what happened and all they could tell me is basically what I already knew. That its somewhere at the holding facility. The postman did say that it typically could take 2-3 weeks shipped first class.

    Normally when I send stuff off to the USA, it takes around 2 weeks, rarely does it takes 3 weeks, but it happens sometimes. If it doesn't arrive in a month, start worrying.

    BTW, I know Chubbyman, he's cool, when he said he sent it, he sent it.

    I bought some stuff from Germany and it has been a month and I am still waiting. The item arrived to the US in about 10 days and has now been sitting in US customs for almost 3 weeks

    Yeah, it's weird with international shipping. You just never know how long it's gonna take. Back in 2011, I sold a Swift Wind to an .Orger in the Netherlands. I mailed it on a Tuesday afternoon and he got it on Thursday-and I went with the cheapest shipping option.

    I know I'm creeping out the mail guy in my office. I stare at him hopefully several times a day. I even recognize the sound of his footsteps.

    I live in Canada, and a lot of people are turned off from shipping here. I would be too, but even with tracking numbers packages can be delayed. I've had a couple problems maybe in the past 7-8 years but nothing major. If he's shipping from Canada he should still have a receipt that was stamped by the post office. He can call Canada Post and ask them to put a trace on the package. You should contact him and ask him if he can do so, because it doesn't hurt to try

    Well. Mr. Clawful has been returned to sender! Great news. The issue was with the addresss. Non-deliverable. More than likely an error on my end. Sheesh. Oh, well. Live and learn. Sorry, chubbyman!
    How's everyone else's shipments? Receive them?
