    Just about to go to bed but was wondering what the $22 postage was all about? I ordered 4 figs. Wasn't it $9.95 last time?

    $9.95 for 2 figs, then goes up in price after that. Would be cheaper to order 2 lots of 2 figs, under $20.00. Sometimes by ordering more it costs more, i normally order 6 figs, this time i ordered 10 and it costs me more per fig to order 10 then it does to order 6.

    oh, that sucks. Is it the same for the faster shipping option?

    I got two of each, but I think I only want one. I need to break that habbit.

    Can anyone tell me, if you order 1 fig, do they box up the white mailer or put postage stamps directly all over the white mailer?

    Postage is Lethal! which Is why Ive thought about maybe a few of us taking turns ordering for each other and getting a maximum of 6 figs each time with express postage, that works out to under $10 each and you get the figs in a week. the only downside is that we'd have to also then pay postage from the Aussie who ordered em once they arrived!

    But With Goddess I am buying 2 and getting Express (because I REALLY dont trust int post at xmas season! I want tracking -and I want her for Xmas day!) And Ive alreday offered Anthony (Fallen) that I will get his Goddess as well, and since Im paying postage for myself, His will get here for free. If anyone else wants in let me know!lol. Cos if Im paying for express anyway, I may as well help some of you guys out!

    Free express postage on Goddess!

    I also think sharing postage costs is a good idea; especially for thsoe of us in the same state (thay way there's no domestic postage). What happens though, if one of the figs has a gumby leg, or no paint on one eye or something Maybe figs have to be distributed before the white mailers are openend.

    Do the melbournians here have a system in place yet?

    Hey He-Boy - I'm in Hellbourne, richmond area - I'd be interested in going halves in 6 figures express post and share the shipping ... I've only been ordering 2 of each on the $10 deal - still havent got my webstors yet but I'm hopeful they will arrive next week...

    I've already ordered 2 x Teelas - didnt get zodak - but if u wanna work something out for next month, let me know....

    In the last couple of months I have been in a rut and haven't felt like posting much or discussing MOTUC in general. Hell, I still had Tri-Klops on his card because I couldn't be bothered opening him and setting him up in my display. I got Webstor earlier in the week and he sat in his box aswell.

    I think I am getting out of the rut. I opened and displayed both figures, I am posting much more again and I feel refreshed. I honestly think it has alot to do with staying up all hours of the night waiting to order on the 15th/16th.

    As strange as that is, and as much as we may hate it, I think that it has become a part of the collector experience. I didn't stay up for the Webstor release and I think that is why I got into the rut in the first place.
    Staying up all night for the release is a drug and I need my fix

    Or my rut could also have something to do with the very average discussion topics on the main board

    Free express postage on Goddess!

    Yeah I will be taking Aj up on this offer. It is not exactly free postage because I still have to pay postage to get the figure to my place but it is still cheaper and quicker than getting it from Matty. Plus it is trackable. If Aj is ok with it I would like to do the same for the rest of the bonuses for next year. And for the He-Man re-release too if you are getting one Aj

    I assumed the mailers would be sent out unopened. There should be no reason for the mailers to be opened. It keeps it fair and luck of the draw to get them 100% perfect, just like it is from Matty

    Yep Thats cool buddy, I was gonna offer! and as for the mailers, Exactly! They are all taped shut in the factory so would remain that way, its no different to just ordering your own figs, you take the one(s) you paid for and open em. done! the others aint your concern! so you forward them on to the other members still factory sealed! all the luck of the draw!

    Also I will get 1 He-Man in November and a skeletor with Goddess in December as well!

    PS HAS anyone with the 2009 Sub had confirm from those Dropkicks at Matty that Teela is on her way? Cos Im getting worried, and dont want to Order three just to find that I end up with 8 again (like Webby!)

    The only thing im concerned about with the white mailers is that with 2 different characters in each box how will you know if teela is inside or zodak is inside the white mailer.

    Im wondering how many people around the world that are ordering both teela and zodak get the correct amont of figs.

    We would hafta go by the stock number on the front lower left of the boxe's(Webstor-P4024,Trike-P4017 etc)). But I get what you mean, I Dont trust Matty -which in any other scenario would make me quit buying from em- but they have me in a strangle hold!

    -TRap-JaW- that sounds nlike a cool idea. Maybe we should see how many of us are interested and which state we are all in so that way no one misses out. Should we add to this list:

    Got Teela and Zodak today, havent had a chance to go through them yet, but i did open up a teela with my daughters and they went crazy.

    I have to say teela is impressive, love the rosey cheeks but the head peg is a little too loose for me though. Zoar sits on her staff quite nicely.

    Also i think the paint apps are getting alot better, the last 3-4 have been pretty good, man at arms to teela.

    Thanks man. I found it on my computer... I wanna say I scanned it from an 80's comic book (cos I know I have the ad somewhere), but it's low scan resolution tells me I prolly saved it off the net at some point... LOL.

    Hey LT, How long did it take you to get a shipping notice? Took me a week, (tho I ordered the figures in the first 5mins of them going on sale) but my order on Matty still says "Order Unsubmitted"... My credit card has been charged... So it's been a week since I got my shipping notice, but nothings turned up. I'm trying not to panic, but Webstor and MAA took like 3 days to get here...
    Guess I'll sit tight for a few more days...
