I decided to not stop  buying stuff and thought I'd share my status to help you decide whether you want to wait or not:

On Feb 2nd I ordered an S33B from Giantoy and it arrived yesterday. Not bad!

Ebay item from artdesire6:
1) ordered Jan 21, arrived Jan 28.
2) ordered Jan 23, tracking number provided Jan 24, ARRIVED Feb 25 (still listed as dispatched)

Ebay item from toysloveit:
1) ordered Jan 23, dispatched Feb 6, last info Feb 9, ARRIVED Feb 25 (still listed as "in transit")

Ebay items from commitmenteam:
1) ordered Feb 3, dispatched Feb 5, last info Feb 13,  ARRIVED Feb 25 (still listed as "in transit")
2) ordered Feb 4, (as above)

Ebay item from xiangwyan_0:
1) ordered Feb 4, number provided Feb 9, not released yet (pre-order)

I shall now kindly inquire about the status about the ones that are not dispatched yet.

Honestly, it usually always takes forever to get stuff thru eBay — mostly due to their partnership with crappy SpeedPak — it was always a bit of a wait from Asia — but SP sucks so bad it isn’t funny — it costs less for Asian shippers to use, so many of them are going to use it.

Thanks for the update, Diana. Glad that stuff from GianToy does still seem to be shipping in a decent timeframe.

I’m currently waiting for an item (Nancy in Hell head) that I ordered all the way back in early January that seems to have gotten lost during the pandemic mess. I’ve already taken it up with the eBay seller in question, and they assured me they are sending a replacement, but I’m not holding my breath on said replacement arriving anytime soon...

Hahaha so true! I had several small things ordered last few month' and the only really slow ones are the SpeedPAk ones. Even their tracking is worse than others. But at least they were responding to my mail - and one day after the answer, the shipping status got changed! Don't know if it was because of my mail but now its already landed in my country.


Otherwise I can't see much of a difference in most of my postage from before the virus and now tbh. Some are fast 1-2 weeks, some normal 3-4 weeks, and some really slow 5-8 weeks. But nothing was lost.

Glad nothing of yours seems lost, Valiarde! Hope my situation with that headsculpt was just a isolated one.

I wouldn't write it off. Early January is still in time - like my HS from SpeedPAK (ordered Jan 12 - landed a few days ago and not in my hands yet). Hopefully will turn out good for you.

I've ordered some stuff from China on ebay, and I can't say that I've noticed any major changes in shipping speeds due to the pandemic. It always takes me about 3 weeks to get something in the mail from SpeedPak.

Didn't see any big change either yet, I received the old Dekkard figure from KGHobby last week, it shipped as fast as usual. Currently waiting on a black panther from them, I'll keep you posted about that one if it gets delayed (didn't get any special notification about it yet, it seems to be on its way)

If anything is sourced from China, don't expect it any time soon. The entire country is still locked down. I've been using alternate suppliers from Hong Kong and Singapore.

KGHobby is based in HK that might be the reason why it goes through as usual

I actually said to myself last year, I have anything I need now and will finish all the projects first.

But in a selfless act to save China's economy, I ordered two heads and some weird gizmos only available there. We'll see.

skywalkersaga

skywalkersaga
Ha, I said the same thing to myself after the holidays — thought I’d stocked up on everything I’d needed for the next year’s worth of custom figures, but of course there’s always something else that comes up...

I'm not so much worried about the speed of items arriving right now as I am about the additional scrutiny at Customs - this stuff is expensive enough to begin with, without having a customs fee slapped on top.

I've got a H/S on the way from GianToy and it seems to be moving along as normal so far...

I'm less inclined to buy from eBay or AliExpress at the moment as both can mean waiting weeks (and occasionally months) at the best of times.

skywalkersaga

skywalkersaga
I feel you. I'm still too hesitant to purchase anything from China on ebay atm, and it's *solely* to do with not knowing the length of time it will take. I need to be able to plan out what I'm working on for a while in advance, and waiting around for an item indefinitely just ends up pushing back various projects and it's rather stress-inducing for me. It sucks, cause the only other real option is ordering from the US, and the shipping prices on ebay from there are awful. But, I will say... I've noticed that my more recent orders from the US have shipped LIGHTNING fast compared to previous orders from the same sellers, which is interesting. Still doesn't make the huge shipping costs any better, though. Razz

Someone visited kghobby the last days? Was browsing there and it seems they are out of most tbleague seamless bodies, which might be good for my on wallet on the other hand, but they were my main source.

zipkicker


I did the Buy It Now an a HS, heard nothing for a week and then got this;

"Hello! I'm sorry! Because our country has a very serious epidemic situation, the country in order to control us, do not let go to work, the postal system and customs can not work. So I can't deliver goods to you until today. In order to protect your interests, I'll refund it to you first. When our country is normal, you can buy it. I'm sorry!!!"

skywalkersaga

skywalkersaga
Ovy -- that sucks! I bet a lot of sellers are running out of tbleague stock right now. Is there a reason you don't buy directly from GianToy, though? They usually have the best prices... 

Zipkicker -- well that's certainly worrying! But at least they are offering a refund....

Well, this is very interesting... according to Royal Mail tracking, the H/S I ordered from GianToy last Friday is due to be delivered to me  .....  TODAY!

If this turns out to be correct (and I've no real reason to doubt it) that will be the fastest I've ever received a package from China. Just five days!  I don't often even get packages from 50 miles away that quickly! I've had packages from GianToy in five or six working days before, but never including a weekend.

Guess I'll be ordering up a TBL body (or two) later today...

Yeah ordering from the US is a nightmare thanks to the (usually) ridiculous shipping costs, sometimes the cost of purchasing an item can triple! Monkey Depot is the only US seller I deal with now, at least they offer a cheaper shipping option. I tend to buy small items regularly from them - and yes, I noticed the last couple of packages from them arrived more quickly than usual.

Looks like China is opening back up. Some of the orders I placed in January are starting to be shipped.

Five days, GeeW! Dang! I was impressed by the fact that my latest parcel from the US had arrived in five days (and like you, it was five days total, including the weekend), but that’s crazy!

Shazzdan— hope your orders arrive soon! I still have some that have not arrived and was starting to lose hope of seeing them turn up at all.

I preferred kghobby because of the prices, a s16 for example was 42€, on giantoy  it was 56$. With shipment costs and fees it was still less than giantoy, although I ordered my M33 at giantoy because it was out of stock on of when I needed it, too

Valiarde

You can also get fees at Giantoy right? I more often get fees from USA than Asia...

Ovy -- admittedly I never checked the prices of tbleague bodies on kghobby, so I wasn't aware of that. I used to solely buy most 1/6 supply stuff off ebay, so a shop like GianToy seemed from my PoV to have great prices in comparison to the ebay sellers. But good to know that kg prices are good too. Though not sure if maybe customs issues due to importing into the UK might make it a lot higher...?

Speaking of, I just got my GianToy order, which I ordered only five days ago -- definitely record speed!

I like the prices listed on KGHobby, but shipping is brutal to the US — so it ultimately turns out to be better to use eBay or Giantoy (whose prices include free worldwide shipping), at least for me.

Well my Gal Gadot sculpt arrived from GianToy without a hitch this morning as tracking suggested. Smile

Full report soon in it's relevant thread.

Looking forward to that - my MMS359 is getting here today, the MMS424 should be here tomorrow and I'll be looking at head sculpts very closely.

It's nice when your stuff arrives on time, personally I'm not too bothered if stuff takes a while just so long as I know its on its way. Also I'm glad to know and see that some China based sellers are opening up again since that's where I get most of my stuff and wont be contacted by the seller cause they want more cash for shipping.

I use both Giantoy and KGHobby regularly.
I never have import duty problems with either.
Both have great service.
I pre-ordered one 1/12 TBL male body from each to compare and they arrived on the same day.

Pricing is usually just a few bucks apart on the bigger items.

Custom stuff like bodies and clothes I usually get from Giantoy.
Boxed sets I usually get from KGHHobby, as I find their tracking and order information to be more convenient.

Valiarde

Valiarde
I just bought my first body via Gianttoy yesterday. Thanks for the tip.
I ordered from kg like 1-2 weeks ago. Lets see when it arrives.
All my other stuff did arrive this week - so nothing was lost, nothing got delayed.

I once had an item from Germany go missing for three months. DHL was unable to provide status on the tracking number to myself or the seller. The seller issued a refund, over $300, and took the loss.
One day in the spring , out of the blue, the item showed up. No explanation, damage to the package or indication what had happened. Though I had long since re-spent the money, I did contact the seller and send payment as soon as I could.
Sometimes it’s just weird how long packages can take to move.

I’ve had the same thing happen through eBay. Lost for months, etc. etc. Boom! There it is is. It was a seller I do quite a bit of business with, so I was able to get them the money — even though they had already sent a replacement. Luckily my items were small enough, that it wasn’t that tragic to pay for twice.

Awesome! I'm waiting for something else from them myself and hopefully it, too, will arrive shortly. Smile

Sadly the Nancy in Hell sculpt seems to have succumbed to the plague. ;p I shall seek out a replacement, eventually....

A very odd thing happened this morning - got one of my regular packages from Monkey Depot, which usually find themselves routed through Europe before they reach me in the UK for some reason. This time though, for the first time ever, the package came via China.

Valiarde

Ebay I had no problems at all last two month, but all my stuff from different asian shops still not here despite some mails that it is underway. I guess lots of stuff held back at customs or interim storage somewhere. Smile
