Exciting news: The shipment with all the games has just arrived!!!
Thankfully, our cargo was one of the last to squeak through the LA ports before the major slowdown escalated to a full shutdown. (The news reports show no signs of the back-log letting up, and we're relieved to be finished with international shipping: http://news.yahoo.com/west-coast-ports-dispute-stretches-ahead-u-labor-222159156.html;_ylt=A0LEVvZ0N.NUHlsAbmwnnIlQ).
Everything looks perfect. We are now pumped for everyone to get your copies! If your address has changed from what is listed on Kickstarter please let us know as soon as possible. We want to get everything in the mail in the next couple of days.
Hello dear backers,
Bad news is that I heard from our manufacturers that our boat from China is still stuck outside the Los Angeles port in one of the worst congestions on record.
This unbelievable news made me want to verify his story--and below are a couple links from some of the news articles I found talking about this deep congestion in the LA ports. Again, I'm sorry for these unexpected delays!
We'll let you know as soon as I hear anything else! I've read articles saying that the unions at the port might be going on strike soon (makes me feel like I'm back in Europe) so let's keep our fingers cross that our ship breaks through the impasse in time.Thank you for your continued patience and support.
Here is the update from our manufacturer:
As the poor state of the West Coast of USA,the vessel arrived at LA on 19/JAN,but still not sure how long to HOUSTON,I will keep tracking them,please noted . Thanks & Best Regards Peng
So it looks like the ship has finally arrived in Los Angeles! Making progress! I will let everyone know as soon as I hear anything else.
Here is the update we received from Panda Games about the slow boat from China. It looks like our shipment should be arriving in California tomorrow, pending activity at the Los Angeles port.
"The ETA for LA is the 14th but there's a bit of a jam at the port right now. They couldn't give me a definitive date for Houston yet. I'll get back to you with an update as soon as I know!"
As soon as we hear something definitive, we will let everyone know. Thanks to everyone for your patience and constant support. Can't wait for ROTJ to finally be stateside and out of the unknowns of overseas factories. On the home stretch!!
