OK.. I live like an hour from the distribution center in Ontario... and it's STILL in progress. I was out of Matty by like 9:04! Why am I waiting! I have a justice league that needs completion and a Swift Wind that needs it's She-Ra!

Really do not understand this delay. I've never had an order take this long to process and ship in the past. Not even when I managed to snag Stay-Puft that first day. It's quite disappointing. :cry:

There always has to be some sort of problem. The website improvements (less WSODs) are a step forward, the shipping delays are a step back. :? I didn't really expect my stuff to show up today but I did expect it to ship by now.

so... didn't get mine yesterday like I thought I would.

For some reason, after entering NY, they decided to continue on into NJ and it is now being re-routed back into NY.

Matty finally seems to be getting a handle on the DR side of things and then they go and sign up with what has to be the most incompetent shipping company out there.

Awesome sauce. :roll:

At least yours is close. After 3 days of waiting for the tracking details to update, mine is now somewhere in Indiana.

Yeah, mine has already "been there, done that" ... Ontario, CA, to IN, then into NY, NJ, and now back to NY...

I could've just drove down and picked it up myself in this time frame.

Maybe its just me, but if someone were to give the shipping company a map and/or access to googlemaps or mapquest, they would find much quicker and more efficient routes, saving them gas and time, which saves them money, which would lower our costs, making us happier, meaning we would want to buy more, thus more shipping business and on and on ... but I only work in shipping, what would I know... :roll:


:lol:

No kidding. My last shipment went back and forth several times between California and Nevada, before they ever decided to send it to Texas.

I just checked my latest shipment. After 5 days without any tracking reports (really, Matty? 5 days? What's the point of tracking?), it has shown up in... Indiana.

Words escape me.

Not defending all of the shipping issues-- but its usually just where the shipping hubs is where things just get sent to--

In actuality some of the shipping makes more sense than all those airlines taking me 1000 miles from my destination then flying back over my original destination to take me where I want to go...(and charging me for that...) I know why they do this-- but it's still stupid....

It took a period of almost a week for 4 boxes to all arrive for me last month after the first one hit.

Mine is in Indiana now too, but that's good for me as it's slowly making its way cross country to NH.

I ordered something (an in-stock item) for my father's birthday from mlbshop.com - the official store of Major League Baseball - last Tuesday, November 15.

I just got a shipping notice about it today, November 22.

And it's not due to show up for another eight days, on November 30.

My Matty items (ordered the same day) will arrive before that. Never thought I'd see the day.
