I ordered the transformer for the my son as a birthday gift. The order was placed just 1 week ahead of the birthday. I live in the West coast. If the toy were shipped at regular service, my son wouldn't have received it before his birthday. However, Toynado paid extra money for expedite service (by air) after they knew that the toy was a birthday gift for a little boy, that's out of our expectation. We received the toy with pleasant surprising with 1 day ahead of the birthday. Thank you Toynado.
