Anyone know why this item could take up to 5 months to ship?
Must depend on your location. I'm seeing free delivery by September 10th. Or by September 8th, $7.11 shipping.
Also, would complaining or emailing Bezos@amazon.com help speed it up?
No.

Damn, that's odd. I clicked the link again and I'm not seeing the "ships within 5 months". I think Amazon might be out of stock, just moments ago I paid $28.99 and now the price is $49.99 and only through 3rd parties.

Here's hoping Amazon comes through lol.

The seller was Amazon "Sold by: Amazon.com.ca, Inc." and the price was alot lower just moments ago at $28.99. I really hope Amazon doesn't cancel my order... seems like they have no stock.

When you get a long lag time like "5 months" it is usually about how long they expect to wait before they can restock. If they can restock, they will get your order, often a lot quicker than the stated wait time, otherwise if it is sold out at LEGO, you will not.

It depends on the seller. For some items, it could be pre order or back order which would take longer for an order to be fulfilled. Obviously as others join in to sell the item or it restocks, then fulfillment time would be much better.

With covid still impacting supply chains, some items could take a while to restock.

That is the next time they're expecting stock. Sometimes they'll get weird and send it from the US.

When those 12v Koolatron coolers were on sale a while back mine shipped from the southern USA and took a bit longer. It was sent via amazon trucks to Toronto then Canada Post across Canada and took weeks.
