    something is definitely not right here ... i am still waiting on my x 1 FFM/karatti subscription shipment ...

    it's becoming frustrating as i have fellow .org-ers awaiting these as ive sold them on ...

    is anyone still waiting?? ... have you contacted DR/matty? ...

    also no sign of octavia yet either - which is also destined for a fellow fan ...

    I know somebody who has a sub here in the UK who selected joint shipping with the Filmation sub and the standard sub - he was waiting on his figures too so contacted Matty and was told that his standard sub figures were on delay until the first figure from the Filmation sub was released (Icer) which seems stupid to me, but that's what they did. Not sure if your situation is the same, but it could be an explanation. I would call them up dude.

    I know because last year I answered a bunch of questions for him about the subs and believe 2013 is his first time subbing. Chances are he didn't read your post in full before replying.

    Before 2013 nobody should have been charged customs on single figures. If you did, you were foolish not to claim the fees back.

    I think that only applies to folks who subbed during the re-opening of the sub (sub lite). tmc1984 subbed from the beginning so it will have nothing to do with the Filmation sub.

    tmc1984, if I were you I'd call (or at least email) Matty straight away about your May items as they should definately have arrived by now. Though have you tried ringing your local sorting office and Parcel Force depot? It's possible they have your parcel and you never got the customs charges notification. I'd give them both a try and if that fails contact Matty.
    10 figures I'd like: 10/Filmation Tung Lashor, 9/Saurod, 8/Perfuma (for completeness of POP ONLY!), 7/Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina, 6/Peekablue, 5/Hunga the Harpy, 4/Sssqueeze, 3/Filmation Clawful, 2/Dylamug, 1/Queen Angella.

    Finally received my May subscription figures from Parcelforce. That might be a new record for the longest delay i've had.

    Ouch that was a delay. All that for Karati and the Foe men! I got mine around the same time as most here on the thread with the standard Royal mail customs demand. Strange that you got Parcelforce when we are both in Edinburgh (I think). The Foe men and Karati are currently in my dungeon with Netossa and Icarius.
    Looking forward to Octavia when she appears.

    Are there still plenty waiting for Octavia? I think this is the longest a single figure has taken to arrive all year.

    My friend is in the same boat, got the sub lite and won't receive his FFM and karatti until the first of the filmation subs ship

    Should be receiving karatti, FFM, clamp champ, NA Heman and icer all at once. He too is a seller and is wondering how he is gonna resell some of them on

    Still waiting for Octavia here as well. Getting worryingly close to customs note time. That would be the first time for a single figure for me. In which case the quarterly shipping is the only way I will be able to sub next year.

    Waiting for Octavia (and MAA) too. Maybe she's been kidnapped by Sea Hawk while crossing the Atlantic?

    Just as I'd given up hope and was expecting a ransom note, Octavia has arrived charge-free. Phew.

    £11.19 customs charge on Octavia - card was delivered by postie this morning, and since i had the day off i went and picked her up. funnily i also received a text from DHL my 3 - 3! Icers are on their way with only a £14.75 charge, just £3.50 more for an extra 2 figures - definatly going all DHL for my 2014 sub

    Seeing as all these Octavia's are showing up it would seem likely that the card I got is also for her - in which case where is my Hordak that I got a shipping notice for about 10 days prior?!

    My spirit of Hordak came today with a ransom note. Picked him up and he's a cool figure, was getting worried he's taken ages to arrive. I was shocked Octavia arrived before him. Glad I finally got him.

    I'm wondering the same. Is this for a Spirit of Hordak toy that was on sale circa June 1st? Have you received the item you had a customs charge for now? What did it turn out to be?

    Got my second card in the mail today, not sure which is which yet but they have both arrived at least. Yes it was the one on sale around the 1st June.

    These custom charges are killing me, 2 figs now costs the same as 3 figs did last year
    Thank god for the quarterly shipping option next year.

    having contacted mattel - my FFM/karatti shipment was officially deemed as ''lost in the post'' ...

    i have since had an e-mail notification this morning (with no accompanying dialogue) stating that they have re-shipped out a replacement FFM/karatti free-of-charge ... (or rather, ''discounted'' in full at the original selling/shipping total ...) ...

    i was alarmed at first as the e-mail was basically just a carbon-copy of the usual order confirmation/shipment e-mail, so i thought someone had ordered something on my account! ...

    so i guess the wait begins again!
