Been over a full year now. Still waiting for my books. The last I heard my books were in "pre-grading". Whatever the hell that means. Do they pre-ship and pre-receive as well? Maybe if they get rid of the "pre" stages they could cut tats down significantly.

Lasers are effective to remove tats.

No hope of you have if you have pre-tats. Not even the clinic can get rid of those.

You know its bad when the Turn Around Time thread cycles faster than your books - I know I've been frustrated with my current order since Turn Around Time 8.0, it is possible I've been frustrated since 7.0

Will I have my graded books in hand before 11.0?

Yes =
No =

Get your votes in now.

Thank God I can see my orders and I can track no movement now with the new tracker. It's been so long, I wouldn't even remember what I submitted if it wasn't for the reminder that they did take my money many moons ago. Dropped books off at Baltimore October 2021 and they added my books in December, basically a month and change after the last time I saw them. Soooo many sweet McFarlane's submitted in that order. Thank God too that my PAID membership expired before the year was up due to their restructuring. That was the sign that I was waiting for. I will wait for my 3 orders to come to me and break ties. It's a shame because I love talking to their staff at cons and their slabs are top notch. Starting to post missing book fliers on my neighborhood trees. I will continue to wait because, what else can I do?

I finally had mine shipped back after 15 months. I still haven't reviewed them though because I never even got an update or tracking number. Then they were sent when I was on vacation so the books are now being returned to cbcs. I'm guessing I will see them by 2023.

Is this the right place to complain that my CGC Economy order from 9/21/21 is still sitting at "Scheduled for Grading" collecting dust after 371 days and counting?

Every time I complain on the CGC boards a mod pops up and says, "It's within stated turn time."

Have I told you about the time I dropped off 3,000 comics at SDCC? Scifinator private msg quote post Address this user
For those coming to this thread for actual information which may give you an idea of Grade only and Prese & Grade TATs, with a couple of VSP thrown in , below is a detail of my 32 Non-Express Tier submissions from June 2021 through August of 2022.

Right now my oldest un-completed press submission is at 68 weeks or 332 business days. 13 other submissions were completed with a combined Press & Grade TATs between 216 - 322 business days and one of those submissions included VSP.

So with the above information and the announcement yesterday, by @SteveRicketts, that they have pressed all September 2021 submissions and are well into October at this point

Delivered to CBCS on June 8th 2021 in two separate boxes. (All standard, w/out any FAST P's and one with VSP added).

5 of the 11 had press completed within 43wks,
1 of the 11 had press completed in 44wks,
1 of the 11 had press completed in 45wks,
1 of the 11 had press completed in 49wks,
1 of the 11 had press completed in <50wks,
1 of the 11 had press completed in <52wks.
1 of the 11 likely had press completed in ~52wks (just not updated to grading yet)

The vacation thing always worries me. Sometimes if you go out of the country the FedEx tracker (if given the number) does not work outside the U.S. so you cannot notify FedEx of vacation hold.

Yeah I didn't even get a update after my books were moved to grading. I came back to door tags from FedEx and no response for customer service for over 2 weeks. Honestly most of my experience sucked pretty bad with the company.

Last I saw the TAT for sig. verification was 28 days.. How long is it now? and do they do any kind of updating on these or is it just processing, until its delivered?

@Lobofan - it is still an estimated 28 business days, though I suspect that is either errantly calc’d or purposefully over estimated. It does not have separate tracking.

Thanks. I can say its not overestimated. Mines over 30 business days, and still says processing.. Oh well it is what it is, I was just wondering if it changed from "processing".. I know with their move, things got delayed.

I'm going to say that sometimes there is absolutely no Quality control of any kind and this is proof positive.No second or third person could have looked at these 3 books and not notice that the labels were wrong. Let's not argue as there is no other possible explanation.

This email was received this morning for one of my September 22' submissions.

Your 22-34DE988-MN is graded and now it is time to get the comics into a CBCS case! Your tier has entered the production area of the company and will only be here a short time before it ships out!

25 books (grade only) 7 modern. 18 new.

Basic question. I sent in 15 books that were entered into the system on 10/1/21. No press, just basic cheapo moderns. After a full year at Processing, they just moved to Grading. Any thoughts on approximately how much longer I have until shipped?
