too lazy to find the old thread, TL/DR I bought these on May 2. Two small orders from different vendors.

No info until a week ago. I even sent an inquiry to the vendors.

Last week I got email that one order is on the way. 4 days later it was in my mailbox. Now the second email arrived, the second order will probably get here this week.

Why did it take them so long to ship? it';s not the shipment, it's the delay in order processing that is slow.

There's a fair chance they were shut down when you ordered.

Different vendors have different circumstances to deal with. This pandemic does not play fair and have the same effect on all vendors. Some can't or fail to adequately adapt to maintain quick response times.



Remember how when you were little
you could just rip off your diaper and
just run around naked and everyone
thought it was so cute and funny?


Anyway, I need bail money.

I bought a toy last year from AliExpress. It looked VERY similar to the cartoon character Voltron. The colorful plastic interlocking building blocks looked VERY similar to Legos. It was cheap and looked freakin cool and fun to build.

Took about 2 months to arrive. No contact whatsoever. No tracking. No status email. It just showed up at my doorstep one day. Thick heavy box completely covered in tape with Chinese writing on it. It took me a few minutes to remember what it was.

I guess this was how it was back in the day. Order something by phone or mail. And just wait until it arrives on your doorstep.
