    Yup! I got mine too!

    They are all so flippen sweet! Even Bow!

    So how come we all avoided fees this time then. We have had boxes marked as $50 before and got charged.

    Is there something on this box that is different from the others I wonder?

    My brothers picked up mine today, I'll get them Wednesday.

    I'm still worried as no sign of Tytus, so hope he's not held up in customs!
    Tweet Me!

    I've just changed my profile picture because we got Geldor in MOTUC!

    Big white sack of goodies has arrived in Canterbury!
    No fees to pay.

    So that's two months I've avoided paying import duty - only ten more months of the subscription to go!

    I was certain I'd be paying customs this month, but my Items arrived yesterday in a big brown box with nothing to pay.

    Just had an email from Matty too about my missing Palace Guards and they've sent out another set.

    This is great we seem to all be avoiding costumes!

    Now we just need to figure out why. If there is a why.
    If anybody has any of the previous outer boxes with all the stickers on, can you see if there is anything differently marked?

    Costumes?
    Well true, so far I've managed to avoid having to wear a costume while I wait for my parcel

    Now we just need to figure out why. If there is a why.
    If anybody has any of the previous outer boxes with all the stickers on, can you see if there is anything differently marked?

    I thought the white mailer sack may explain it since it has no visable value on it, and is just passed rather than opened. But people have also recieved shipments just in the box, with the $50 declarion there for all to see. So maybe it could be to do with the port in Germany they are being sent through and are then forwarded on and being detected as being shipped from within the EU, which doesn't get us customs charges. Who knows though, I think we have to play it by ear month to month and keep hoping for the best.
    What next? It seems every month lately there is something..

    I got no white mailer bag.

    Is there anything at all to indicate that these definitely came via German first?

    Ive torn up and thrown away the box now, but Im pretty sure the mail on the move parcels always came via Germany. It is probably just still hit and miss.. I got all my SDCC stuff through with no customs charge, which arrived in the white mailer sack, minus Plastic man, who then arrived seperately with a £30 customs charge on him (which I refused and had sent back to mattel)

I had the same problem with the Prince Adam figure.....

    The likeness and design of Bow (apart from the glued on quiver of arrows, which should be removable!!) are great. Just the head size and quiver that kinda spoil this figure.

    Yay. Got my subx2 stuff today. Unfortunately it was abandoned by my bins with a parcel card through the door saying as much. Not exactly secure.

    Good news is that obviously there was not a custom charge even though the white mailer bag of awesomeness was not present. The outside of the box was marked as $100.

    Loving Preternia He-man a lot more than I thought I would. The cosmic key is epic. I have him displayed with the blaster as I figure he might not use the power sword openly in the past in order to protect his identity.

    Bow I like but was not over the moon with. He actually impressed me more when I displayed him alongside She-ra. The gold and red on both characters actually looks pretty cool.

    Shadow Beasts are just monstrous. Marzo is a real threat on my shelf now!

    i've never had anything delivered from matty in a white mailer bag - no matter how big my order was ... just a big old box! ...

    My order had tags on it to indicate it came through Germany and France.
    Although it arrived in a sack, rather than a box.

    In fact Bow was in his white mailer, in a box, inside another box, inside a sack. Mattel shipped a lot of extra cardboard this month!

    The only time I've had a mailer bag was when I ordered two Battle Cats (on the first release) and I'm pretty sure it was a blue mailer bag.

    Still not got my second Sub order here, so it might of been caught by customs

    Anybody in Scotland received the February sub stuff yet? I got Keldor last Friday and that must have been sent at roughly the same time. I'm starting to worry about customs charges now.
