Murphy's Law says I walk into a Target on July 31 and find her on the shelf. Ah, well...

I swear Smartpost is the worse ever!!! Almost two weeks since Firefly shipped and still hasn’t arrived yet. Houston is only 2 1/2 hours from Austin and it’s been two days since.ImageImage

You're in Austin? You should just call Fed-ex and ask if you can pick up the damn thing. The drive might suck but not as much as this.

FedEx is awful.
USPS is awful.
Smartpost is the red headed bastard stepchild of both.

I haven't had too many issues with shipping overall. Smartpost seems to make some oddball decisions, but I'm sure there's some logistical algorithm which has a reason for shuffling stuff seemingly in the wrong direction. With how much stuff is being shipped around these days, I'm willing to forgive shipments getting held up a few days here or there.

Picked up CI Roadblock

He’s a really odd one to get as he’s so different from what I see the character as that he has to be an all different character for me.

He’s more like Cesar from The Expendables.

I like him though, was 25% off too which is nice because it’s hard to find these guys in the UK, far less likely to be on sale

Just use CI Roadblock as Heavy Duty. They're cousins, so physical similarities are fine. His head sculpt is different enough from the other Roadblocks, they can pass as separate people.

Target came thru on Cobra Trooper and Firefly. I'll be damned.
I like Firefly a LOT more than I expected to.

Both my Viper orders have moved from Pre-Order to "Preparing to ship" status! It's really happening!

On the Target app the circle that was a quarter filled with green has now filled halfway for my Viper orders. Does that mean it is now preparing to ship?
