    I've been collecting for a year now, and when I first started figures would take 10-14 days from the day they were shipped to arrive at my house, but lately it's been a lot, lot longer.

    Star Sisters
    Shipped January 17th
    Arrived February 16th
    30 Days

    Faker
    Shipped January 24th
    Arrived February 17th
    24 days

    Demo-Man
    Shipped January 20th
    Arrived February 21st
    32 days

    Sorceress, Fisto and Shadow Weaver
    Shipped February 18th

    Fearless Photog
    Shipped February 18th


    I'd be ecstatic if something arrived this week, but I'm not gonna hold by breath.

    How long do UK orders usually take?

    So, I've ordered about 6 Classics off Matty and was wondering how long they usually take? Also, I've done them all in separate orders to avoid customs, but because they were done within minutes of each other, matty won't add them together in one parcel will they, I hope not as I've already paid for each individual shipping

    Hi there, good to hear you've ordered some figs! It's really hard to know how long they'll take to arrive, if you're lucky they may only take a couple of weeks but it could be more like a month. You should be okay if they are ordered separately, I've not heard of Digital River bundling them together. You'll probably find they arrive spread out a bit too, you know how it is with post!

    Yes it is very unpredictable. You'll probably get one figure after about 2-3 weeks and then the rest will turn up, one a day, a week or two after.
    That's one thing I like about individual orders - there's always an early arrival! Makes the waiting game seem less of an ordeal.

    It probably would have been cheaper and quicker if you had ordered them all together.

    I think you probably did the right thing ordering seperately, when Matty had their last sale I ordered a bunch of figures to plug gaps in my collection and they ended up in customs, figures usually take 3 - 4 weeks to arrive in the UK but if customs get hold of them there is a longer delay and then a big charge to get your figures.
    I only order 3 at a time now as they seem to get though customs ok.

    Sorry do you mean 3 in 1 order? Or separately?

    My sub Photog turned up yesterday, hopefully the main sub figs not too far behind.

    No crack on the lens - I'm surprised how much I like him, really eye-catching figure. The chest lenticular sends your eyes a bit funny though if you look at it too long!

    I mean 3 in one shippment, any more than that takes the value above customs limit, which i think is £40.

    Got my sub Photog today. Not sure of his fate yet. He may be sent to the basement with Icarus and the Star Sisters to await processing. Can't be long now until the AAA package of Sorceress, Fisto and Weaver. Best MOTUC package ever?????

    Also, to the people asking about custom charges, I only ever received custom when parcel force tried to deliver mine, never with royal mail. Don't know if this helps

    Also, my local comic book store has supplied me with my first marvel legends figures. I can see why people are obsessive about those figures too plus I've done my first build a figure

    Happy days!

    Royal Mail tried to deliver a parcel today, but couldn't fit it through my letterbox.
    I'm collecting it tomorrow morning.

    I'm guessing it's either Photog or my Mass Effect 3 Collectors Edition.
    In this one case, I'm hoping it's not a new MOTUC figure!

    It was Photog in the parcel!
    He's a very striking figure - not my favourite the line has offered, but he's going to look good on the shelf.
    No problem with the lens, either.

    And ME3 arrived this morning anyway: so it's a win-win for me.

    Hi all. Received the much-anticipated Shadow Weaver, Sorceress and Fisto parcel this morning.
    Shame I've no time to open them before I go out.

    No customs charges again!
    That's six months now...
