Bandai Figure release dates and delays

Posted

Hello with regards to Bandai's June items that are late, we spoke to Bandai this afternoon and they have no estimated arrival date as of today on all outstanding June releases of such figures including (but not limited to) Megaman Zero Type 2, Star Wars Storm-Trooper and Darth Vader,  SSJ Goku (3rd release), Luna (3rd release), Yoshi, Chibimoon and other June releases. The delay is now due to some union truckers at the ports causing another Strike with the already slow recovery/pace which was already delaying everything to begin with since back in April. The end result of all this is that each supplier has to arrange for other trucking companies to pickup and deliver containers to them which adds even more time, the rep at Bandai gave an estimate of 2-3 weeks extra for right now from the time a container is unloaded to it is delivered 20minutes away to Bandai. So this will affect Bandai's July releases also, which means they will be late.

A bit of good news is luckily we have a bunch of Good Smile products arrived prior to this new strike to GSC and some shipped a week or so ago (arrive next week) and a bunch more are shipping next week to us so for now the June/July releases of GSC products will not be all affected that much (they are late already but should not be much later).

We ask that customers refrain from sending emails asking when their product is arriving as this causes an extra workload as this year almost every single product has been/is late. 2015 will be best known for product delays and shipment delays for all suppliers. We will update listing pages as we find out updated arrival dates or your order status will change to awaiting shipment (or payment if you owe a balance) as the items arrive in stock.
