It's my understanding that some have shipped, but there was a shipping issue with the rest. I've heard the remainder are being shipped out with 2 Day expedited shipping.

Actually I was tempted to order, but held off. Still waiting to see someone post theirs mystery box for instant regret or maybe Wil Wheaton couldn't show up to fill the boxes because his Memaw passed away.

I can confirm the 2 Day expedited shipping. I checked my FedEx delivery manager (because, frankly, who likes surprises?) and there is a 2 day package coming from Woot. Unless, of course, that is a shipment of monkeys that they think I deserve for being such a wonderful guy. But I am betting on the Wheaton sale. That and the fact that TBR shows that package.
TL;TI: It shipped! 2 days. now 1 day.

Mine is also due tomorrow and listed as 1 pound.
We all agree to hold Wheaton personally responsible for the outcome, right?

Mine has shipped as well. Tomorrow arrival, 1 lbs.

I agree Wheaton should be held responsible for the outcome of this.

Dying to know what's in the box unless there is a signed, mint condition Wesley Crusher action figure. If that's in there I want to be surprised.

It is now: 3 lbs and 10x8x3.

I got everything except the 4GB usb drive. I wonder if that's only for some boxes or an omission. Still keen on what I got though. SQUEE!

Received the same, minus the robot usb. I have a problem though. they requested my shirt size, so i responded XL. (I'm not quite an XL yet, but I've got plenty of XXL and I am on a new eating/exercise plan and should be back into XL's soon enough). Well, they sent me a L. What the heck? I get there's a lot of problems lately, and i'm sure it will get remedied, I'm just getting fatigued at sending in complaints to support (just as I'm sure they are tired of receiving them.) Oh well, on to more waiting.........

edit, oops my bad. no robot, but got a journal in its place. here's a pic...

Did you respond to the correct email? (NOT support@woot.com)

Mine went from TX to NJ to IN to NJ to TN.

FedUp still claims it'll be delivered in the next three hours, but as of three hours ago it was still in TN.

I'm in CT.

Maybe the wacky shipping is part of the mystery?

It is an interesting query you pose. NO, I did NOT respond to support. The email from joel said to reply to this email with your size and that is what i did.
That said, i did look at my emails and there could be a problem with woot or with yahoo. the email came from xxx@woot.com. i hit reply to sender and Lewis, Joel populates the sender line. At that i sent the email. when reviewing my sent mails, the email went to yyy@woot.com. so, obviously, technically not sent to the original box, but i don't know if yahoo screwed me or if woot screwed me. i don't know enough about email coding.

So, you bring up an interesting point that requires some back story:

When we merged with Amazon, we also got Amazon email addresses based on a different naming scheme. So we ended up with 2 work email addresses going into the same mailbox.

Recently we merged our Amazon and Woot accounts in a technical way I can't begin to really understand, but the problem arose where some of us had one Woot username and one Amazon username (I have a unique enough last name this has not been a problem for me at least), but we needed them to be the same- so now we have our amazonusername@woot.com, basically a possibility of three email addresses going into the same account. All work, but the one you'll see externally will be the amazonusername@woot.com.

I received the same mystery box as barkwoot but have the same problem as jthebird1977. I also received a Mens L when I replied to the e-mail asking for a different size.

Fedex sent my Mystery Box to the WRONG STATE. It went from TX - NJ - IN... I live in NY. My new estimated delivery date is N/A. So, I have no idea when I will see my poor box of mysteries.

Hey guys,

Boo. Joel did say the email was time sensitive, you had to reply by noon the Friday after the email. Maybe you guys didn't get in under the cutoff?
Maybe Joel just really likes the belly-out trend on his geeky dudes!

I must share the conversation I just had with Fedex.

Me: Hi, my package seems to have routed to the wrong hub. It's gone from TX to NJ to IN, but I'm in NY. So, my 2 day delivery isn't here, and it's not showing when it will get here. Can you give me an estimate?

Fedex: Ok, hold on please......... It looks like your package is in IN.

Me: Yep.

Fedex: Packages route to hubs, that's how the process works. (They seem confused as to what I'm asking.)

Me: I understand that. My package went to my closest hub, NJ, then went to IN, where it seems to be stuck. Do you have an estimate of when it will get here?

Fedex: The estimate shows N/A.

Me: Yes, I saw that on the website, that's why I called.

Fedex: Ok, it looks like your package has been delayed.

Me: Yes, that's why I called. Is there a new estimated delivery date?

Fedex: No, but I think it may be Monday.

Me: Ok, thank you for your help.

THAT'S IT!!!!. No, actually I must have replied too quickly. He had my shirt size within five minutes of asking. No biggie I guess. He missed the email or they packaged the wrong size. It'll get fixed.

This isn't Woot's fault, but the FedEx guy applied a sticky note to my door, saying they'll attempt another delivery on Monday, as opposed to leaving my box at the office for my complex, like they normally do. The local FedEx center where my package is now being held is only open M-F during business hours, and of course I didn't find this out until after they were closed. So now I have to wait until at least Monday, and more likely, Tuesday morning, to enjoy my box of (now-spoiled, but that's okay) mystery. Dammit, Wesley!!!

My package has also been circling, and went from ETA of yesterday to delivery date unknown. It's finally made it in-state, so I was hoping to see it today... but I see that it says weekday delivery on the tracking.

BUT THEN! I got another email from Woot, and there's a second tracking number! So I don't even know what's going on. These boxes look AMAZING, I just want to bask in their glory.

Looks like my box made it back to NJ today. Maybe I will see it Monday after all!

And now I'm super curious about this extra tracking number some of you have...
