    Has anyone received their DC comic yet? I might have to email them and see where the hell it is!

    Already?! Was it DHL shipping? I only just got my shipping notice today.

    Edit: I just got a text from DHL saying that my parcel is due to arrive and I owe £23.73. Boooooo.

    My first experience with DHL isn't a great one so far. They text me yesterday morning saying my package will be arriving soon, please pay the customs.
    But the link to pay gave me a security warning on both my phone and laptop, and the number they gave me was giving no results.
    They called in the afternoon and I tried to give payment over the phone but their automated service rejected my details twice.
    I finally got through on their site last night and managed to pay, and then wake up this morning to yet another text asking me to pay.

    Also when I padi it didn't say when my parcel would actually be delivered... anyone who's been through this before, roughly how long did it take for the parcel to arrive after paying?

    The £39.00 was for 2 subs (8 Figs) working out to roughly £25.00 per fig - not too bad.

    When they ring do they give you the waybill number and is this the link they give you? https://epayments.dhl.co.uk/

    For me it works out fine, I just print out the receipt and leave it for the driver when he drops the parcel off.

    Was happy to add Spirit of Hordak to my collection the other day.The irony is, I haven’t even read the mini-comic Spirit of Hordak was featured in as I haven’t opened King He-Man, so his relevance was somewhat lost on me until someone on here uploaded one of the pages. Still keeping an eye out in case I catch the mini-comic being sold on eBay, but so far had no luck.

    Karatti and the Fighting Foe Men showed up today too. I actually really love these figures so they make a welcome inclusion. Especially in the case of the latter, I’ve always been a fan of the concept stuff, so was actually really intrigued by the Fighting Foe Men.

    I also paid a custom charge to Parcel Force for about 30 quid, for what I can only assume is the Icon Heroes Castle Grayskull statue. I have a scheduled delivery for tomorrow. Ridiculously excited.

    Was hoping my wallet could have a rest but my PS3 broke down with that “Yellow light of death” (YLOD) while playing one of the downloadable adventures for Skyrim. Now I can’t decide if I should get it fixed or wait for the PS4. December is going to be brutal, paying for one of those on top of two Castle Grayskulls. Maybe I’ll cancel one.

    Btw, has anyone received their DC comic yet? Still waiting for mine.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Yeah it was the statue. One of the coolest things I've ever bought.

    In complete awe.

    That castle looks great Nephilim, but I can't bring myself to get one, cos i too have 2 MOTUC Castles G's coming in December.

    Re the comic, do you mean ordered from Matty? I got mine from Forbidden Planet.com and it arrived 20th April and I received an email this morning saying issue 2 has been posted

    I ordered my comic from DC (although I'm starting to wish I'd seen it at forbidden planet).
    My comic still hasn't arrived.
    I did note that in the Canadian shipping thread that some of the guys there had already received Issue 2 and Issue 1 still hadn't arrived.

    Yeah I ordered the comic directly from DC via the Matty page but neither issue 1 or 2 has shown up. I'll email them later and tell them to either get a move on or I'll just cancel the subscription (if possible) and get it from Forbidden Planet. It's a shame, cos I wanted that exclusive cover.

    I downloaded the comics to the DC app on my iPhone the day they were released so its not the end of the world. But I'd still like physical copies for collection purposes.

    I had an email back from DC subscriptions which read:
    "Thank you for contacting DC Comics. Upon checking your account I found that you should receive issue #1 between June 3rd and June 17th.
    If you have any more questions or concerns, you may respond to this email or call us at (800) 887-6789."
    Guess it's on the way!

    Better late than never I suppose. I've already read issues 1 and 2 so not in a desperate rush. If the comics are in poor condition when they arrive though I'll cancel the subscription. Doesn't seem worth it if thats the case. Thanks again.

    My comics issues 1 and 2 were posted through the door. No hard back card so they were slightly bent posted through the letter box but no permanent creases...

    Yeah issues 1 and 2 were delivered yesterday. That's pretty cool that they sent two of them in one go as now we're all caught up. Hopefully the wait won't be quite so long for the next one.

    I got my IH CG off ebay and I specifically got it from a UK seller so I wouldn't get a customs fee.
