Cronus Zen 6 Week Wait List, But.....

Apr

27

2022

Newsflash: I know many of you are on this crazy long six week wait list (shakes fist at the shipping companies), however I do have some good news. One of our vendors was unable to take a custom shipment so we have a few hundred Zen "Mega Bundles" which will be available to buy on Friday, and YES, they will ship NEXT WEEK!

Once they're available on Friday I will ping you guys here. But once they are sold out, they are sold out, and it won't be until late May, Early June until we get the next shipment of Zen's. Meanwhile, while we do what we can to minimize the ONE PER CUSTOMER policy, there will be a lot of scalpers out there selling Zen's at over inflated prices, so if you want one at real retail cost direct from the manufacturers, get one as soon as you can, because now the new 2.1.0 update is out, they sell FAST.

Zen Pre-Order Batch #10 Shipping Update

Oct

28

2021

As you may (or may not) know, there's currently a global supply-chain backlog at every shipping port in the world, which is causing some major delays with every kind of product.

Batch #10 shipment was expected to arrive before the end of October, but it's been stuck in the same place for almost 3 weeks now. Until we get an update from our shippers, all future sales of Cronus Zen have been suspended until we are able to fulfill all pending pre-orders in time for Christmas.

If your order number is between 145266 and 148453, you are in Batch #10 and hopefully we'll be able to ship within the next couple of weeks.

Thanks for your patience!

Zen Pre-Order Shipping Schedule Update

Sep

20

2021

Due to the global shortage of microchips caused by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we've been limited to the amount of Cronus Zen's we're able to produce each month, so to make sure everyone has a fair shot at getting one without paying over the top prices on eBay, a Pre-Order system was setup so customers could allocate a Zen from one of the monthly shipments we received.

For most of the year the waiting list was between 90-120 days (bless all you crazy gamers who waited that long!), but now that we've almost caught up with the entire pre-order allocation, the waiting list has been drastically reduced to just 30 days. Not only that, but we're able to start shipping Batch #8 two weeks earlier than expected - and any that we couldn't yet ship have been moved to Batch #9, which is still scheduled to ship in October so don't worry if your batch number changed - there's no delays). 

No one likes to wait, we get it, but we promise it's worth it. There's a reason everyone wants a Zen - you're going to have a lot of fun with it ;)

As promised here is the latest Zen Pre-Order Shipping Schedule as of 09/20. Whenever we receive more accurate production information from the factory, this page will always be updated. We expect Batch #9 to start shipping within two weeks.

USPS temporarily suspends all deliveries to Australia

Sep

20

2021

The U.S. Postal Service has TEMPORARILY suspended First Class Package International Service and Priority Mail International delivery to Australia due to carrier issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

If your package is already in transit, Australia carriers will endorse the items as “Mail Service Suspended — Return to Sender” and then place the package in the mail stream for return to us here at Cronus. If any packages are returned we will make arrangements to have them re-shipped to you by an alternative method.
