Are Rolis Shipping?

Anyone get a shipping conformation email for Roli yet? Supposedly they started shipping the week before last. I am being patient and this isn't complaining so Rich and Richard I know and understand the process, just a simple question to the community.
Thanks!

I just realized, the photo in my avatar is really old - I took that in my basement when ezrobot was first launched end of 2011. I don't know what got me thinking of that - maybe the fact that we've come so far in such a short time:)

Hard to believe that it will be our 3 year anniversary on the 21st (or is it the 28th?)... I forget! I better check...

Yup, just checked - 21st! Roli's for all!

Wow, so close... how weird would it have been if this was 5 days earlier?

Or this only 3 days earlier

11-2117 November 24, 2012 - 1:55:31 PM Step 4 of 4) Shipped 2 $247.82


However, it is highly likely the 21st was the day I decided on EZ-Robot (I'm going to say it was just because it makes the 21st November more awesomer)

Any news about shipping of JD for orders placed in March 2014. I am not complaining, just asking.

Thanks!
#10  
@DJ... Roli's for all! Woooo hoooo... I'll take mine in black please....:P
#11  
I have JD that I ordered from robotshop.com and I got it one week after placing my order. I am now asking about JD that I ordered from EZ-Robot eight(8) month ago and I do not have it till now. They even did not reply to my last email asking about shipping date.

Thanks,

Check your spam folder @RoboticMayor. If you used the Contact Us form you should have at least received a reply to the initial contact if not the answer to the query.

Hi Rich,

I emailed Aislinn Grant.

Nothing in the spam folder.

Thanks,

Just got a shipping notice on Roli and a dev kit! Still in China, but on the way!
#15  
This thread sure got off topic in a hurry! Well, at least now it resembles about every other post on this forum ... Roli info please - thank you
#16  
My notification showed up also! :D

Look out for it everyone. The Revolution is Roli'n on.

The Crawlers and Walkers are out and the Rollers are coming.

I also just got an email which said my order was shipped (Status is now "Step 4 of 4) Shipped").

We ordered Roli over a year ago in October, 2013 and have been patiently waiting since.

The email still did say that "Additional Information: Due to high demand, some items in your cart are in pre-order status. ". I'm hoping that was just an error and that Roli is indeed rolling out from China.

We did get a tracking number so something is coming.
#18  
I got my shipping notice as well. Not much longer now!
#19  
That is great news! Thanks for reporting. I ordered mine in January so it shouldn't be too long. My birthday is the 22nd, that would be nice!
#20  
DJ, don't change your avatar. Forever young!

Thanks for all you've done with EZB. You've made it possible to bring my B9 to life and give me the ability to make him mirror the original B9 from the 60'sTV show Lost in Space.

My roli is on the road again! Yes!
Tracking the little guy!
Have him for my birthday present this year!
He will help with Turkey day this year!

@Sander that is great to hear! You should take some unboxing pics/video when you get it. :D:D:D
#25

#26  
@Zap - yes, our tracking shows the same, going from Dongguan to Shenzen to now being in Hong Kong.

@aislinn - for sure, we'll take some unboxing pictures!

I placed my order Dec 28th, 2013 and was notified that it shipped yesterday from China :D
#29  
Put my order on Nov 14 2013. Was notified Nov 17 2014 (3 days ago) that status has changed to "shipped" :-) Tracking info shows shipment received in DONGGUAN - CHINA on Nov 7.
Continue waiting..........

Mine has cleared customs and departed from Hong Kong. DHL has a delivery date of tomorrow but it takes them a week to deliver 75 miles from St. Louis *confused*
#31  
Mine sat in Ohio for a couple of days clearing US customs, but then once it was on the move, I got it the next day, and that was with a wrong zip code (not sure if that was my mistake or EZ-Robots, but they have the right one now).

I just checked the shipping status and it's in Cincinnati. Probably get it next week.
#33  
Surprise surprise surprise! Roli just walked through the door ... well the delivery guy walked through the door carrying him in a box! Now if I could only open the box and put it together. I'll continue to be patient until my friends can help me. If I train Roli to color track my wheelchair would we be a Roli train rolling down the train track? :)
#34  
@stelmobarry good luck with your build-up team, hope your train and caboose stay on track.
#35  
Congrats @stelmobarry. I just received mine last Friday. You may want to start charging the battery so you calibrate before assembly. Also be aware there have been a few that have had the H-Bridge wired wrong. Super easy fix but when you fire Roli up and get him dancing and waving you're all happy. Then you go to move him and nothing happens. So be aware that it's a very simple issue so there'll be no need to be disheartened. Have fun with your Roli. I'm digging mine.:)

@Arius, that the same thing with my order; Nov 7 and no change since. I did contact EZ-Robot and I've been told that they expect my order to move soon. My final destination is close to Ottawa, Ontario.
I'm checking several time every day :D

@Arius, that is what I was hoping for last year. My order originated Nov 14 2013.
