Haven't received a notice yet (From HC or MOC) but there are 9 things listed as shipped in my status page.

I've still got items left over from MOC that are supposed to be shipping and I haven't gotten notification for those either.

I usually don't though until Thursday night/Friday.

Yeah, I'm not expecting MOC's notice 'til Friday either, but I am curious about HRs shipping as this is my first real BC from them.
Even if it is on the small side.

If HC is faster for you are you going to make a complete switch or will keep doing half at each place?

Probably.
As it is I've been moving more and more over each month.
I'm most curious how FedEx works out.
I'm still not sure how my new workplace fells about getting personal boxes every month. And If I have to get my BoC delivered to my home, I'm afraid of FedEx just leaving it at the door.
If my job nixes deliveries I may have to switch back to MOC.

I don't see why they would care.

Those mailboys have to do something all day. :twisted:

Ah the joys of package tracking.

I'm still waiting for Astonishing X-Men volume 4. It was sent out last Thursday, and the distribution warehouse for Chapters is like 20 minutes away from my house...

In my experience with FedEx, if you're not home to pick up a package, they leave a slip on your door and you have to go to the nearest FedEx place and pick it up there (where they ID you and shit).

Oh and that Amazon package that was sent free supersaver got to me same day!
Not over night but same fucking day!

It left from somewhere in Delaware at about 8:30 am and I had it in my hands by 3 pm. :shock:

That's fine. That's what UPS does (which is a pain 'cause I gotta go to the distribution center in the Bronx) as well as USPS (which is fine 'cause my post office is only 2 blocks away), but FedEx has just left packages sitting at my door.
DHL does the same shit.
That's one of the main reasons I've never used DCBS.

can you ask them to use USPS or UPS instead? Usually they will if you ask.

Currently, Heroes Corner only offers FedEx as it's delivery method.

They seem really good about accommodating you so you might as well ask KP.

I did ask, and for now they only use FedEx.
But if I need to I'm sure I could arrange it with FedEx for them to hold it for me somewhere.

I think Pagla should just buy out DCSB or whatever cause he porbably knows more about the business than the owner himself. Pagla is teh smart.



































And old. :P

That sucks.

I really don't think your work will mind you getting one package a month and if they do that's pretty ridiculous.
