Why has my order not shipped out when the item(s) I pre-ordered has already been released?
The most common reason is because we have not received our shipment just yet. Sadly, we encounter both shipping delays and even backordered issues from time to time. If we have a serious issue regarding a pre-order, we will always reach out to our customers to notify them and provide updates.
