Iím fine on the 14 day thing...  I think my over a month situation was just a sign of the current times, and I blame EE less than who they use because as I filed complaints, I noticed one consistency was that they seemed to not be getting a response from who theyíre using.  For me I was more afraid about having to contact my CC and do a charge back if EE wasnít willing to play ball on it.  I was def getting run around from their CS but I think itís because they didnít have an answer due to the shipper giving THEM the run around too.  But thatís the ****** part of using that service which I wish theyíd find something new or go to a different format. 

Funny then this week I got an item that shipped while that other item had still not arrived and it showed up pretty fast and like Jeff said the packaging was mint.

I buy a lot from China and Japan direct.  Iím amazed how quickly some of it gets here for reasonable prices and packed nicely too.  Never had much of a problem.  Even Wish stuff isnít too bad...  slow, but arrives safe generally.

The sad part is that 2 day UPS shipping for EE probably would cost less than $5/package.   I've helped negotiate corporate shipping contracts and they get pretty cheap when you ship a lot like they do. 

EE is choosing the cheapest, crappiest service, and charging us for it.  I wouldn't make excuses for EE.  They're making the choice of shipping vendors and can always change vendors if they would like to provide better service.

I love to support Jeff and the JD team, but will not order from EE if I've got another option.  I'd rather pay a Patreon fee to JD than get stuck with slow, slow shipping.  I'm an opener so EE's minty guarantee doesn't do much for me anymore.

Not a TVC purchase per-se, but I picked up an acrylic stand off of eBay for my Amazon Exclusive Big Slave one and couldn't be happier. Seller is surge38 if you need one.

Using the new TVC DPCI, I've been able to score pretty much everything I need from the K2SO/Power Droid/Commander Wolfe/Stormtrooper Luke wave. I have a pre-order for 2 more Power Droids and one for another K2SO - I might cancel the K2SO now that I have three open, but the Power Droid, I definitely want more of...

I pulled the trigger on a K2SO on eBay, for the purpose of doing a stop motion review before my case assortment arrives.

I found a lone Power Droid on Saturday and ended up stashing him for a friend. Looked nice.
