    Between Xmas, New Ywear and the weather i'm not expecting December's toys anytime soon. As long as they're here by the end of Jan i'll be happy.

    You guys noticed the parcel was sent from Germany as a priority parcel? I think what happens is DR is sending those figures by ship that's why it takes so long to get here and then they sort them out in Germany and send them from there to all Europe buyers.. Hence the ridiculously long delivery times. There is no other explanation, if it was International mail then it would be sent via plane and be here in 7-10 days.. That's the usual delivery time from US sellers to UK for me when I buy stuff from eBay..

    hhm, I don't know. When they arrive in Germany it always says they were going via Auckland, New Zealand. If they do that way in a container on some ship, I am sure that would take even longer than the long time we are waiting for it.

    I am sure they are sent via plane but why it takes so long?...no idea.

    Received my Re-issue Skeletor and the Flying Stands this morning (12th).

    I took a gamble and had them sent in the same box. I didn't have any customs charges. Not sure whether that's because I was lucky, or because the cost of the contents was low enough.

    Still waiting on the Goddess and Randor. Anyone else get anything today?

    The last two months have been sloooow!

    Up untill Scareglow the figs arrived here in Denmark within 25 days.
    Now they take more than 30 days ... well, the King and Goddess
    still have a chance at making it before the release of the new set of figs,
    but still ... it's a drag to wait this long!
    Armageddon will soon be here,
    the sinners will meet their fate.
    But I am calm and without fear,
    as I feed upon my hate.

    Well done Neil! I wasn't expecting it to arrive "so soon" considering I received my November figures just this Saturday the 9th! I had 4 figs in one box and also have been spared the Tax pain but I won't risk it again

    Is anyone else in the UK still waiting on their re-issue He-Man? My Scareglow came pretty quickly, but He-Man hasn't arrived yet.


    I an usually more than patient, but am a bit worried about placing an order on Friday, when my figures from the order - 2 orders ago - still have not successfully arrived???

    I wonder how long it will be till somebody actually receives Randor? How late on in January last year did Skeletor start showing up? It didn't seem like too long a wait.

    Got Skeletor and Goddess today, no customs charge.

    I ordered Randor separately a few days later, so he's not arrived yet.

    Goddess, Randor and Skeletor figures arrived today and no Customs charges. That's two packages in a row without the extra cost - will it last?

    I'm surprised to have received the figures before ordering the next ones - under four weeks' delivery hasn't happened for months for me!

    The people who usually get them late seem to be getting them early this time. Hope that doesnt mean the people who usually get them early get them late now lol.

    It sure seems that way - Randy is here! That's Randor singular as in the Sub package - Goddess and RandorII are presumably shacked up in Customs waiting for the ransom note to get to me.

    He's not my fav character so he's OK at best as a figure but it sure makes a nice change NOT to have to wait until last. Sorry Guys.

    Randor and the Goddess in Edinburgh before Januarys figures go sale.That's more like it digital river!
    Randor was sub and was posted 2 days before Goddess but both arrived together this morning. Must be the German efficieny. Any chance on that European distribution centre?????
    Cool figures. Paint jobs are great on both. Love Randor's bushy beard.
