    The packaging was another reason I didnt try for him earlier, I heard it wouldnt get through customs, so was gonna try for a loose one.

    I got two from Ebay no problems. That whole electronics excuse was used by Mattel but I didn't hear of anyone outside the US having troubles importing him.

    Ditto, As much as I wasnt gonna try for him, I am now, Im aiming for 4 for me and another Aussie .Orger has asked me to try for 2 for him, cos he cant get to a comp on the day.
    And after 1 of my Zodacs finally turning up today, Im definetly going for 'Express' postage on MAA, Trike and He-ro!!! I cant cope with the stress!

    I would like to be one of those people on your list if I am unable to pick one up for myself when it is released

    My luck will eventually run out on Matty Collector and I don't want it to be August 3rd when it does

    No wonder it takes so long to get our figures. I've been watching my order for Hordak and UPS only picked up the package from Matty TODAY.

    They must ship the local figures first then worry about the rest later.

    My thoughts exactly, i got my shipping confirmation today aswell, expected delivery 23/6.

    A friend of mine in Newcastle got his Zodac today so im hoping i will have him in my hand on monday, the funny thing is i will get Hordak a few days later.

    Hey guys and gals.

    With the addition of the Social groups here on the forum, one thing we're going to make a push for is the use of them for groups like yours.

    The social group once set up will allow for you to post threads inside of them specific to your club/group.

    These areas are also "unmoderated"
    I say that with quotes because the forum rules and guidelines still apply, but you take upon yourself to sort of self-moderate.
    We will still come in and moderate, especially if something is reported. For example, we've seen a couple groups use their areas to criticize and attack other members, and that's not what they are there for.
    But the social group would still be your little safe haven of sorts.

    In time, what will will do is shut down group/club discussion threads in this forum and replace them with links to your social group.
    That way new members can seek you out.
    And you can also PM members who are in your area (as you can tell from their user profiles) to come and join your social group.

    I know it may be a bummer to see long previously existing threads like this come to a close.
    But I guarantee you'll find the social groups more to your liking, especially with the ability to have multiple on-going discussions rather than one thread where it's harder to keep track.

    And yes, this is gonna be a post I cross-post to other group discussion threads.
    So I apologize for the generic'ness of it.

    Anyway, check out the Social group area today.
    And I suggest the most prominent member of this thread be the one to setup the social group.
    Discuss amongst yourselves who that person is.
    Don't any one person jump in there and do it on a whim without talking to everyone else here first!
    It's better to respect the existing members of the group and decide together how you want to get your own social group established.

    Thanks!
    Please check out my gallery on Deviantart
    And here's hoping for the return of Power-Con!

    Hey Aj, are you still waiting for more Zodacs (or anyone else for that matter) to turn up. Im starting to stress as he hasnt turned up yet and alot of others have gotten theres already, it shipped ages ago (i think on the 21st). My wife rang me today at work and said that i got a box and presummed it was Zodac but it was the Hordaks (super fast shipping) so im really worried now that im not going to get him.

    Hiya mate, My second Zodac arrived today, and yeah I was getting worried. Because I panicked on the day of ordering - long story!- and ended up ordering 7 total. 5 in one order and then two in single orders, well the two singles have now arrived, but theres still a box of 5 floating around out there somewhere.

    It really shows the disparity,youd assume they were all posted the same day, but i dont think they were, the one that arrived today was posted on 20/05/09 (I cant check the box of the one that arrived Friday, cos Ive already stripped and re-used the box). Im really hoping the box of 5 arrives tomoro.
    I still cant beleive they come via New Zealand! and its not like they just pass thrugh, they are actually re-posted from the Auckland mail centre! so god knows how long they are in NZ!

    I am SO paying extra next time! maybe some of us should buddy up to order, lot cheaper, faster and less Stress!!!

    Cheers AJ

    Thats some comfort to know that you still have some coming, i know its crazy that they go via N.Z., if you get your Zodacs and mine dont turn up i may have to buy some from you if your 5 havent been purchased by anyone. As far as the shipping goes im going to get extra man at arms and he-ro (try to get more he-ro) and get faster shipping but after that if you dont have the subscription im happy to get faster shipping and split it up.

    Okay guys, I created a group here;
    http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...php?groupid=21

    We need a logo though... Anyone got any ideas?
    I really love Alex The Kids avatar... (but maybe with the logos on a map of Oz or an Aussie flag?)
    http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/member.php?u=18426

    What do you guys think?
    And Alex, would it be cool to use your logo?
