The labels have been printed, but I would imagine it will be several days before we see actual movement.

Mine's already been picked up and moving across the country - it departed NECA yesterday evening.

I'd think it'd start moving now for me especially to get them by opening night. I'm in the Midwest and these coming from California would need several days to get here from UPS.

Got my notice too! Really cool to be getting these on time with the con attendees, and possibly even sooner.

I know some people like me ordered on the first day and have received no notifications yet. Don't worry.

I emailed NECA at 10:13 this morning. I just received a response back at 12:22. That's rather good customer service if you ask me.

I explained that I had ordered before several people that are reporting they have confirmation emails for sets in route to their residence. And I had received no word yet about anything.

Long story short...

NECA response to my email:

"You should receive a shipping notification this week."

And because you ordered from me through eBay, your other four Foot Soldiers take precedence to orders outside of eBay.

I'll still be getting my entire turtles set first, as I obviously should since my set from Neca is shipping straight to me. Whereas the set of four foot soldiers first have to reach your house in NC and then have to ship back to me in Chicago.

But I can be patient. As soon as my collectors set gets here, the first thing I'm gonna do is rewatch all 10 seasons of the OT on dvd. So if it takes a week or ten days for me to get my foot soldiers I'm good with that. I'll be watching the show until mid September.

I'm fairly certain that orders are filtered by some degree, but not necessarily by the order number(s) that were attached to them or the timing of when the orders were processed. There are probably a number of contributing factors but I think that NECA's arbitrary shipping deadline is the largest factor. NECA wanted to make sure that all of their customers who pre-ordered got their figures by the week of SDCC, right? So if we were to replace "SDCC" with "Christmas", then it wouldn't surprise me in the least if NECA's shipping manifest for these orders looks pretty similar to what we might see for a typical holiday shipping schedule. Therefore, I believe that the shipping schedule is determined not by who ordered first, but rather by distance.

So orders that are shipped out to the East Coast and US territories are shipped out first, followed closely thereafter by people who live in the Midwest like myself, plus Alaska and Hawaii. The next batch of orders will be set aside for those who live in the great plains and rocky mountain region. And then finally the last set of orders will be sent out by friday or early next week and will arrive to homes in the West Coast the following business day. This shipping schedule ensures that everyone gets their orders around the exact same time. It may not be perfect. Some of us may get our orders 1-2 days in advance of others, but I'm pretty sure that everybody's orders should be on their doorstep by the time that SDCC is open to the public.
