I wrote to them explaining the situation, but they said they couldn't cancel cos they'd already been shipped

    I swear I have no idea how Matty/DR does it. How could they possibly think 2 unsubmitted orders (ie, not complete) are legitimate orders? Yet, other times you lose stuff that's already in your cart. How can this be???!!

    Anyway, my point in writing here was to let you all know I've got 2 spare Buzz Offs if anyone wants to buy them. I'm only asking what I've been charged by Matty (not inflated ebay prices). If no takers, I'll try and get a refund (looks to be unlikely ) or go to evil bay.
    Hey Robzy

    I had the same thing happen with Labcoat Ray and Whiplash. I got an error and thought the order hadn't gone through. I then ordered again successfully and got the 2 order confirmations.

    I contacted Matty straight away and got the same answer, they couldn't do anything because they had already shipped. Now I have a boxed Labcoat Ray and boxed Whiplash sitting in my back room

    i got the restricted msg on the stands too!
    I had to remove them, then order them separately and it worked - not happy - this stuff up means i've had to pay for 3 separate lots of shipping this month after my sub and my guards ... I've written an email to matty but doubt they will do anything about it - scumbags

    Edit: I ordered 10 stands and it cost $60 shipping snail mail!!! W * T * F ?

    Me too. What annoys me the most is that I now have to wait around 4 more weeks to get my items for the same cost. How is that fair trading?

    UPS is only $50.55!

    I am going to have to take a Valerie just to get back to sleep now...

    Same here mate but it's a much better alternative to missing out when you get there at 4:05 AM. I can't afford any more. I would snap up some if I could.

    Why The Face indeed! I would love to know how they came to decide the shipping costs for these stands. The box they come in is tiny.

    Edit: I've just done some testing while the Palace Guards and Grayskull Stands are still available. It seems that both items (although VERY different in size) equal a standard figure as far as postage costs go. This means that 9 sets of Palace Guards and 1 set of Stands cost the same as 9 sets of Stands and 1 set of Palace Guards.

    Geez, I get up early for the first time in months and this is what I get...

    For $60 shipping I better find some way to enjoy those stands I bought until more figures arrive... Maybe I should open the two packs and put Superman on a stand?

    What a mess, Toyguru should just admit Mattel don't care enough about this line to fix any of these issues..... especially after all this time.

    Did anyone order the stands the first time round?? Was the shipping expensive?

    I was too anxious to get the figures before they sold out that I forgot to add the stands on the first release. This time, it was just all messed up.

    Atleast they said they would re-inburse the difference in shipping on all the orders that were affected, but i received a reply to my email saying sorry they can't help me, I have to call 1-800-524-TOYS (1-800-524-8697) - does this mean I have to make a $10 call to the US, to get my $10 refund? meh

    Roboto is taken care of now I need Grizzlor.

    I have an incoming Vikor that I have no interest in and will trade for Grizzlor so let me know if there is any interest.

    Sadly it seems I'll be doing this a lot with my first sub. I'll be doing the same with the Feb sub figures as well as May even my exclusive I think I'll be parting with. I don't think I'll sign up next year.

    I ordered the stands the first time around but can't remember the postage.

    I was going to bring the postage issue up with Matty in one of the Q&As, but then realised that the current system works in our favour. Sure, having a flat rate per item is expensive for small items like the stands, but more often than not the bonus items are larger, not smaller (2-packs, Weapon Paks, beasts, etc..) which means that we get larger items sent at the cost of a standard figure.

    Agreed!... Generally the shipping isn't too bad, better not to say anything or we'll end up regretting it

    Man this shizz just seems to get worse. I'm glad i've given up on the classics line, i'll just start collecting them again when they have all been released in 2016 or when ever it is. i was finding the only stress in my life was trying to score the lastest MOTUC figure!
