For Christmas I got myself a Forgeworld Reaver Titan. I ordered it on Christmas day, and I was surprised that they marked my order as shipped on the 26th. So, if you had to guess, how long do you think a package would take to get from the U.K. to Iowa, USA?

1 or two weeks, probably, It usually takes 2-3 weeks to get it to Australia. They aren't open on Christmas day, so thats why your order was processed on the 26th.

With the 26th being a sunday and a bank holiday immediately following, I share his surprise that it was marked as 'shipped'. It just seems unlikely given how much of the UK shuts down on bank holidays- I once wandered the streets of Cardiff for over an hour in a vain effort to buy something as simple as food on a bank holiday.

Well, honestly I did check this pretty late on Sunday night, so that would have meant Monday morning UK time.

Even then, Monday was a Bank Holiday as was Tuesday. The UK didn't really get going again until Wednesday.

Wow, your banks weren't open on Monday. That stinks. That really makes me wonder how it was marked as "shipped" by monday morning.

I ordered Blood Angels Terminator Shoulder Pads on the 11th (It was marked shipped by the 13th) and still haven't received them. I'm hoping for it to be today or maybe early next week. That's what we get for ordering stuff during the holidays.

@ cuda1179 - Bank Holidays are more National Holidays, most businesses are closed on them.
