"Of course, no problem" He took the details went over to his computer. Then his head rotated 180 degrees and he said "There is no package only zuullllllll (and 2 Vykrons)" ok that part didn't happen, but he did tell me there was a box with an £18 charge and I was lucky as it arrived on the 25th and was due to be sent back on Tuesday, "Didn't I get a card" I then told him about the calls etc. he gave me a card with a tel no on and told me it will come straight through to this room. I thanked him and left with a large box.

    Vykron is awsome I orinally was only going to have one of each, but using some extra bodies I had lying around I have 2 of each on display, I need to post the pics when i'm home

    Also Sir Laser lump arrived Sat morning by RM, no charges, he's ok, nothing special but I've no problem with him joining my MOTU's either
    Things like this really annoy me. We pay a hell of a lot for these figures. $22 for the figure, $10 for shipping and then whatever Parcel Force or Royal Mail feel like charging us. We're paying a handling fee, but if we have to physically track it down AND THEN GO AND PICK IT UP!?!? Then what exactly are paying for from them, and in this case, the Postman didn't even deliver the bloomin' card to say they had it, they should rearrange delivery with you and then bloody deliver it, we should NOT have to go out of our way to get it from them when we're paying them for a service that they're not fulfilling.

    This country is damn well greedy, lowering the threshold to £15 for customs, they know that most toys imported from the US will just go over that.

    Ok guys, I promised to update you when I received my Stealth Fusion Batman figure, which was $25, the same price as each MOTUC figure next year.

    Unfortunately I DID get a customs charge, of like £11. I also received customs charges for my individually shipped Vykron ($30) and Wind Raider ($50)

    It doesn't put us in good stead for next year, annoyingly. I read in this thread that some didn't get a customs charge for Vkyron. It must just be (no pun intended) a postcode lottery that determines whether or not you get a charge for the lower-priced items.

    I made my feelings known to the old fella at the Royal Mail depot and I was told to blame this government, so I guess us British orgers should do the same. Let's just hope that maybe Scott will make good on his promise to try and get some kind of Euro distribution centre up and running. But t looks doubtful I guess now they've reached the minimum sub orders. Dang!

    Don't forget DHL's handling fees are apparently much lower than Parcel Force's (£1 instead of £8, I think it was), which is one of the reasons I selected them for next year's sub.

    Yep, remember the days when the customer was always right and came first? not anymore, (even Burger Kin have dropped their "your way" slogan)it's switched back in favour of the businessess, so the rich get richer.

    Well talking of paying off the companies. My extra DOS snakemen arrived yesterday - £22.40 charge using UPS (was only $10 more than standard shipping) compare that to PF £20 charge for 2 Vykrons, £13 for one Battle Cat and it's not bad, though defo using DHL next year for the big items!



    Mix and matches will be later this week!

    I had the day off work today, and look who came knocking


    My sub items, No customs



    Tiny scratch on the DB Skeles shoulder at the back showing some black plastic, probably wouldn't have noticed if not for all the threads about it

    Now, what better way for a Friday afternoon than to FINALLY read the conclusion to the PoG story!

    I have no paint problems with mine at all. The only slight problem were the Snake mens hands were stretched open in the packaging so I had to heat them up to make them tight again.

    thats the worst part about this ordering online business. the last week or so i have been paranoid that my sub items have not arrived yet especially as it appears they have sold out on the site i just wish there was a tracking number i could give to parcelforce or the website said somthing other than mail on the move for example what country it was in!

    Still waiting for my DoS figures to arrive too. Matty shipped them 5 days after I ordered them so I was expecting them to take a little longer than usual. Hopefully they'll arrive soon.
