Well, it’s been almost 2 months since I left Beijing, and no news about the vacuum metallized C-3PO fiberglass head from the factory. Today, after a phone call, I was being told that the helmet was sent around the time I left Beijing (about 2 months ago) to a 501st friend of mine in Beijing. However, I have not heard anything from him yet. I am crossing all my fingers on that it has not been lost during shipping.
It’s hard to do detective work across the globe.
