Actually, 8 weeks is just about right. It takes a few weeks to actually cross the ocean, then it takes a month or so to get through customs. Then it needs to get sent to various distribution points, be checked for issues, and prepped. Don't forget, Chinese New Years was in there to maul many timelines and critical communications. Finally, the stuff needs to be shipped from distribution points to more distribution points before it goes to the stores.

 

My understanding is we should see them in the next couple weeks IF nothing went wrong in the above process. Relax, they will be in your hooves soon enough.

 

Shipping massive crates full of stuff takes longer than sending a single item by mail. :)

Another note...When the ships come in to port they always have to file in a que to customs. The ships containing perishable items (such as fruit) always jump to the front of the que. So delays in our aces shipment can also be attributed to the amount of perishable items (which is increased during the winter time due to the lack of fruits/veggies being produced state side).

It sounds like you would be a person who could file the Aces crate as perishable.

I just got a call from my buddy who helped hijack a vessel in the Bay of Aden, Somalia. After going trough the 5000 containers he confirmed the Imperial Aces where on board. We'll be holding an auction next week  ;)

Certainly not.  It was a recent event which I did mention when Aces first got "on the boat".

Speaking of that, I remember when Games Workshop was sending the, at the time, new Eldar Falcon tank model for Warhammer 40k to the US, the ship that was carrying them lost several cargo containers overboard in a storm. The entire shipment of Falcons were in those lost containers and now rest at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. It did delay the release of the kit here in the US IIRC.

Those Warhammer tank models would be precious artifacts that describe us and our political situation for the people 1000 years in the future. What a great way to mess up the minds of future generations  ;)​
