2021 Toy Shield restock Status Updates! – Toy Shield Protective Cases 7 Oct 2021 2021 Toy Shield restock Status Updates! by admin | posted in: Uncategorized | 0 It’s been a while since we’ve posted any updates, unfortunately it’s because it’s been a while since we’ve received any updates. About a year ago we placed our order with our manufacturer, unfortunat...
Since we get a dozen or so messages a day about tracking not updating, we decided to do some digging on the matter. Turns out there are many issues with scanning, some are USPS employee related and some are network related. When the network is down for a particular region, even if the package is scanned it will not update a status. This could explain why several of our packages don't get scanned when they are picked up, and some packages have no updates at all even to the point they are delivered. Here is a link to the USPS outage map for the USPS network:
Cities that show recent outages are likely worse off with tracking updates and overall deliveries than other cities. Keep in mind, even if you don't live in those cities, if they have to pass through to get to you, then you're still effected.
It turns out it's not just a problem with the scanning, this year in particular USPS has experienced a rampant backlog. Here are a few articles (there are pages of articles, this is just a few) that talk about the issue. To summarize, COVID and the holidays has caused the delays. Yes, holidays, meaning there are items shipped in December that still have not arrived yet! Reports of USPS workers getting COVID, but also COVID being responsible for people Christmas shopping primarily online this year which is a double-whammy with limited staff.
We're happy to see some customers getting cases quickly, and we were initially concerned about the customers that have not gotten theirs yet but we've learned that this shouldn't be much of a concern as delays right now are unfortunate but expected. But please be assured that we are on top of orders, and they are shipped out within a day or two of being placed (some delay on weekend orders) and a "Pre-Shipment" status was shipped but likely not scanned when it was picked up.
Status overview Realtime overview of issues and outages with all kinds of services. Having issues? We help you find out what is wrong.
[12/30/20] We're a little behind on messages. We apologize and we'll get you answered very soon. Thanks for your patience!
Update on TMNT1, PM1, MTB1, and TMNT2 pre-orders!
We finally got customs release (took over a frustrating week) but they are being put on the truck on Monday and headed to our warehouse. Which means preorders will start shipping out next week! We'll start in the order they were placed so if you've recently made a preorder then bare with us a few more weeks on this, when these arrive we'll be kicking these out as fast as we can.
Another thing to note, the prices went up dramatically for us in all areas (materials, manufacturing, customs fees, shipping) so unfortunately we will raise the prices on these *a little* just to get it back where it was for us. It won't be drastic and we're only changing these 4 products, we appreciate your understanding on this. 2020 was not nice to industries that effect our business unfortunately. This change will happen when we officially move these from "pre-order" to "in-stock" on our website next week just to give our followers a last chance to buy them at the old pricing. (And whatever stock is left will be recalculated to fit our margins and increased).
We appreciate everyone's support and patience and understanding. We had no idea this reorder would take a full year to get. You all have been awesome and I'm excited to show you more sizes we've been working on!
Guess what? We're only 5 weeks away from these being back in stock so we opened up pre-orders on the site for TMNT1, TMNT2, MTB1, and PM1
Update for products: TMNT1, TMNT2, PM1, MTB1
With all the bad news we've been getting this year, we finally got some good news! Took longer than planned but the order is almost ready to ship to us from the manufacturer. In about a week we'll open the website up for preorders so you can get yours shipped first from the new batch. The wait time on preorders depends a lot on shipping slowdowns but it's looking like around 5 weeks. Thanks for everyone's patience on this!
Very first look at a few new sizes we're working on. The Hot Wheels case you can stack 5 in one case or 2 in one case with artwork visible. Don't get too excited, they're not finished yet, but this work in progress should be finished soon. Just working out a few design tweaks before giving final approval. Even more sizes on the way, will post previews as the samples come in!
(No updates yet on PM1 or MTB1, other than we are waiting on them from our manufacturer. I know this is off topic but it's our most asked question so we thought we'd preempt it 😅)
Our Turtle cases are now back in stock - but - new orders will still take about a week to ship out. We're spending all weekend and most of next week fulfilling backorders (about 100 different people waiting on packages as of this morning) and we're shipping everything in the order in which they were placed. If you placed your backorder in December then you'll get yours first! 😁
Sorry if we are slow to reply to messages, we have our hands full but we're not ignoring you. More updates coming soon!
We've been getting a lot of inquiries on timeframe for restocking our TMNT1 cases.
Figured we could use some customer feedback on this one...
We are working on 8 new sizes!
One of our new sizes for Jurassic Park toys will feature a hang tab on the top like usual AND on the side for the carded dinosaurs so they can be hung up landscape orientation. This might seem like a simple concept, but this has caused a bit of a slowdown at the manufacturer. We submitted revisions to the design earlier this week and we have to wait for samples to approve for mass production. Every time we submit revisions, it's several weeks before we get samples.
We love keeping prices low for our customers so we try to save freight costs by shipping everything together. It might not seem like a big deal, but sometimes our freight bills can be as high as $7500! Which has an obvious effect on product price to the customer. Because of this, a while back we told them to ship the next order of TMNT1 cases with the new cases so we'd have one freight bill. But with the delays on the new products, it keeps delaying us getting in our TMNT1 cases.
The Question to our buyers...
Is it worth the wait to keep the prices down? Or should we go ahead and have them ship the TMNT1 cases separately to get them faster? Without getting freight quotes first, we can only estimate but it might raise the price of the cases another $0.85-$1.25 each case.
I like having the prices low, which is why we live with these delays, but we've been getting several messages about it and the original manufacturer target date we had is way overdue so I figured I could at least post the question and get feedback. Until we approve samples we're happy with on the JP cases we can't really give an estimate, but as of the email we just got from the manufacturer it's looking like January is realistic and December is the earliest. Shipping separate would bring them here end of October or early November.
Sorry this was so long. Thanks for the feedback!
We LOVED playing with toys as a kid. But now as carded-figure collecting adults you can't play with them anymore, right? WRONG! Granted, the plot lines in your role-play may be a little more adult-oriented, but that's just life. No matter what you decide to do with your toys as adults, keep the carded ones protected with Toy Shield Protective Cases! We hope you enjoy our retro-commercial parody and be sure to check out toyshield.com for more information.
Turtle power, they're back!
New TMNT1 cases coming soon. How soon? Well I took this picture a few minutes ago. After I unload what's being stored in the warehouse, the rest are going to the toy store to fulfill backorders. We're starting with the oldest orders first and working our way forward. You'll get a tracking number in your email as we get the orders filled. AFTER backorders have been shipped we will put them back "In Stock" on our website. Thanks everyone!
[05/31/18] TMNT1 size back in stock very soon! Next few weeks we'll have a definite date. Manufacturer told us early to Mid-June.

I made a order probly 6 months ago or more and must say how pleased i am with your product.

These tmnt cases fit my bucky o'hares with no problem and enhance my collection by lightyears. Totally recommend. I would love to see some reaction/starwars sized ones or even MOTU. Thanks again and expect a new order from me soon.

Here is my review of the Toyshield Protective cases for mint on card vintage TMNT Figures
Come see our booth at Dallas Fan Days! We're booth #61.
Keep your figures safe by eliminating the gap! Especially during shipping or accidental drops, having a figure case that's not a tight fit will cause the figure to shift from side to side inside the case and damage the edges and in extreme cases (from personal experience) the jolt will cause the weight of a heavy figure to pull the bubble right off the cardback. "Like" our Toy Shield page for upcoming product updates. We mind the gap, you should too!
Toy Shield wishes you a Wonder-ful New Year!
