Icarus is a dude, so I'm assuming you meant Sprite.
Thanks Norm. Yes. Sprite reminds me of Kid Icarus. I've been confusing the two for the last 6 months. It's headcannon that I'm trying to break at this point.
I can totally understand the confusion! I find "Sprite" a weird name to have among all of the Greek and Roman mythology derivatives.
Sprite is another name for a water nymph in Greek mythology

Thanks for the clarification. Clearly I'm not familiar with its etymology, since it's used in several other contexts today. Many of the other names have clearer mythology connections to me.

Yeah, I believe Shakespeare named his fae character in the tempest after the Greek nymphs , and it was a small little trickster. Which I think is where this character was ultimately inspired by

By time Pulse actually ships this, it might as well have stayed at the 1st of January...

I like how the email said, "You're item has left the building" 2 days ago, but FedEx just says, "label created." Guessing they're sitting in a truck in Pulse's parking lot.

Nah. It’s far more realistic to presume that the box is just sitting out in the back parking lot, in the miserable weather.

See? Good news. Right?

FedEx shows my Johnny and X-Caliber set are scheduled to arrive on Sunday and Monday of next week. So they are shipping.

Mine can't be canceled anymore, so I'm assuming it's paid. But I have no shipping notice or tracking number created.

I got an email saying mine was delayed until January 31st.
I'm not too fussed, as it's going to be an expensive month with bills, insurance, tax & presents all together.

My Excalibur set is on the move. I'm surprised it shipped out so fast. They usually send out the Canadian stuff later on.

Mine has "left the building" according the Hasbro but not FedEx. Still, happy this set is coming this soon. I really wasn't expecting this set until next year. If the X-Force set can ship out early then my ML 2022 list will be pretty small. It might be down to just a few from the Retro Spidey wave....which would be nice to get a break and wind this line down. Too many lines requiring too much of my money.

Doesnt mean anything. Mine said expected today, but fedex also says it hasn't moved beyond label created
