    Why they gotta mess with customs even after it's over.....

    If it was a manufacturing delay, you'd need to add a few more weeks to allow for shipping across the pacific and clearance through customs. Though, the second option might be a possibility.

In the event that it is marked after clearance (happens) it doesnt take longer than 48 hrs for the inspection if any.

    Again if you are part of the priortiy programs and import the same items on a regular basis, the chances of full (empty the container) inspection, are very limited.
    We'll agree to disagree then. I see it regularly in the airsoft industry, where other shipments are delayed because customs had to prioritize an inspection on another container which meant that, say, KWA's container which was also flagged wouldn't get checked until after the flagged/priority container was thoroughly inspected.

    Given they already said that we should prepare for the line to slow up a bit, I'm betting we get two reveals at SDCC and an in-stock Ex. Fingers crossed on the last one, though if it's another Ninja (unless it's Billy, Jinx or Kamakura), I'll likely pass. They hinted at Scarface a while back, so there's potential there.

    Were the containers on the same shipment IE same bill of lading, its the bill that is put on hold and not the container. So if you have 2 containers of Air soft equipment and one is going for inspection, they are both held until the exam is done.

    Think we get Destro and Baroness at SDCC and thats it for the year.

    I really hope those are the two revealed at SDCC. I see us getting another Cobra and a Joe though.

    I hope sooner, but yeah, I would be shocked if we didn't see them both by then.

    I could be wrong, but I swear they mentioned in a Q&A that Destro was on target for a SDCC reveal.
