I have had the tracking numbers for my orders for several days now but UPS says they canít be found. That tells me the shipping labels have been generated but may not be affixed to any packages. Or they have been and are still sitting at Disneyís warehouse. Anyone have a tracking number showing detail on UPS?

Hit the 1-week mark for my tracking number and still nothing on UPS site.  I plugged the number into the USPS site and got "USPS Currently Awaiting Package" so they don't know anything either.

My last ShopDisney pack (R6W1CH) took nine days with UPS/USPS "Mail Innovations" so I guess I have another couple days before I get too worried.

I'm in exact same boat Jeff. So assuming they didn't lose MN's shipment I think we're ok......

Good to know I am not alone in this, albeit I wish you guys were better off than I. Seeing people on IG getting theirs is keeping me positive that either the UPS tracking site will have details on my number soon or they will just show up. Fingers remain crossed.

I've seen a lot more of that lately with UPS doing the long haul and the post office doing the local delivery.  The tracking data is totally garbage, but the delivery date they quote is usually pretty accurate.

I'm still waiting on my Stormtrooper orders from both Hasbro Pulse and Shop Disney.  The Shop Disney order looks like it's processing, but I still don't have any tracking information.  Meanwhile, the new holiday droids were made available only a few days ago and I already have tracking info for those.

Same same.

Did Disney ever put the rebels up to order?  Iíd like more than two sets but I donít believe pulse is allowing more than that.

Not yet.  Sounds like ShopDisney is holding back taking any pre-orders on these until closer to release date.

Interesting strategy.  I wish I could buy more off pulse.

Hmmm.  A tale of two ShopDisney shipments -

Stormtrooper 4-pack - email says "shipped" with tracking # on 10/26; tracking # still not working on UPS site, tracking # shows "USPS Currently Awaiting Package" on USPS site.

R5-D33R - email says "shipped" with tracking # on 11/2; tracking # works on UPS site (est delivery 11/10); tracking # works on USPS site as well.

So weird.  I wonder what the deal is with the Stormtrooper packs?  Did somebody forget to move a pallet of orders to UPS or something? :P

This post in the RS thread:

Quote
Ordered 2 sets from Disney and got the shipping notice last week with a ups tracking # that didnít exist. Hoping for the best I waited the 7 days and started a chat with a shop Disney csr that quickly told me it was lost, they are sold out and all they could do is refund me. Yay Star Wars collecting!

I bet this guy gets a refund and then they show up... no way this many of them are lost unless someone literally robbed them.

EDIT:  Another twist... someone suggested you plug your tracking number into the USPS site because it looks more like a USPS tracking number than a UPS tracking number, and mine did come up.  It still comes up as 'USPS currently awaiting package' - but weird all the same.

I've got half a mind to just ask for a refund at this point.  I'll either get $100 back, or i'll get $100 back and get the figures anyway if this is some kind of weird glitch and they're out there...

Yeah, ShopDisney is using "UPS Mail Innovations" for these, which is like the UPS version of FedEx SmartPost where UPS delivers to USPS who then deliver it to you.  They have been doing that for a while now.

Like I said earlier, just so weird.  Either something happened to a whole truckload of packages or there is a software glitch.  I'll give them two weeks and if I've got nothing by then (11/9), I'll start the process to look for a refund.

Since I somehow got around the limit on Pulse, I decided not to order from ShopDisney.

At least you guys will get these sort of early.  I've had issued with shipping from other sites in the past and it can be frustrating, but I bet patience will pay off.
This is the way.


I have spoken.

I went ahead and emailed and they said they have issued me a replacement order.  Others are being told these are sold out and that they can only get refunds.  But this is what they told meÖ

I wonder if Iíll get 0, 8, or 16 of these now.

These look like a great deal, bummed I missed the Stormtroopers, but it sounds like a lot of people may miss them anyways. I did manage to snag two of the RFTs.

As of this morning, my tracking number finally works.  Shows the package was picked up by UPS 11/4 at 5pm.  Tracking info says I should have the package by 11/10.  Hoping this all works out in the end!
