My Red Factories pre-order has been "packing" since 2/14. I know it's a big release, but seriously. Is something wrong with my order?

It's very fragile and must be packed with utmost care. Oh, now look what you've done. You distracted them and they messed up. They're going to have to start again at the beginning. Hush up so they can concentrate.

You have been reassigned to the back of the queue after rechecking the packaging.

In my case, it seems to be about ten days. My order went to "Processing" on 2/14, "Packing" on 2/15, and "Dispatched" today (2/25).

Tomorrow, tomorrow, they'll ship it, tomorrow, it's always a day away ...

It takes longer to pack if your credit card is not up to date. You might check to see if there was a credit card change while it was on pre-order and call to give the new expiration date.

I think that's pretty common. My order did the same thing and has done the same in the past.

MIne was 'packing' for quite some time as well. I stopped looking and boom, it showed up at my door.

remember, a watched pot never boils.

For what it's worth, my own order went to "processing" then to "packing" in the same day (Jan. 24), and then it took 6 days to go to "shipped/dispatched" (Jan. 30). The order was a simple preorder for Red Factories (not the preorder-special Red October).

Last notice I got on mine was packing on 2/15. I'm assuming they're packing one counter at a time, individually wrapped.

Apparently wrapped in velvet and sung to softly as it is lovingly placed in the appropriate location in the box.

The problem is freezing all those tiny pieces in carbonite one-at-a-time. It takes a while. Jabba the Hutt didn't complain about how long it took. He was happy with the results.
