    I assume you used the fast shipping? The answer is probably obvious but I still always hold out hope the figures will get here quicker than two or three weeks lol.

    Edit: A friend of mine got his today too and he usually uses the standard shipping so not sure if his was mixed up or if they are here earlier for some?

    Here in 5 days? That's UPS.....which stands for Unbelivably Pricey Shipping. Nice if you have the cash to burn but not for paupers like me. Another 4 weeks to moan about how unfair life is for me......

    I'm not aware of having paid extra, but if Trap Jaw and the like follow suit then unwittingly I may have done! lol

    Also my friend did not yet get a shipping confirmation. I got one a few days ago which I guess means thats when she was dispatched and I probably wont get her any sooner than normal.

    I'm glad I opted out on skipping the Green Goddess (based on all this 'bobble-head' talk) ... plus, she didn't interest me either (nor did Zodak) - bring on the TRUE classics Matty! ... You can leave POP and NA out as far as I care!

    Randor is a super figure I think! He totally beefs up the collection!

    I was surprised at how much I like Randor. Now I really want the rest of the royal family, especially Marlena.

    Same here. I still haven't got my Goddess yet even though she was shipped a week before Randor. Something is very wrong with the world when Motorthing isn't waiting for anything and I still am!

    Anyone else still missing anything from December?

    Got shipping confirmation for Adora and BA He-Man tonight. Despite ordering Adora just after 5pm on the 15th and He-Man in the final hours he was available on the 18th, it looks like they've been combined. I really hope I can still avoid import tax!

    Anyone got any idea what the declared value of Wun-Dar is going to be? If he's being shipped with the monthly figure and valued at the normal $20 we're all going to be in the hands of HM Revenue & Customs. Oh and then there's the map too. Would be cool if they were valued at a nominal fee as they are a gift of sorts...

    Its getting on my nerves a bit the cheap shipping option.

    I am thinking of going for the faster option to avoid the worry each month as I am losing track of my orders.

    I manged to complete a order for the re-issue He-Man within 5 mins of going on sale and yet it eventualy got to me on Saturday just gone!!!

    My two 12 inch Egons arrived yesterday BUT no sign of my Skeletor or Randor which worries me.

    Not sure I can do much on the subscription shipping options but the extra figs like Battle Cat and any re-issues I order are all going express now.

    Still waiting on my Randor, Skelly and Goddess. For the first time I ordered all three together - I expect that they are being held up at customs....

    Civilization is indeed ending as we write

    Never fear though - we have a long year ahead of us, Postal Strikes are soon due to resume around here and I'm sure the normal balance of nature will be restored soon enough.........

    As I foolishly ordered a pack of flight stands along with the Goddess, I got a customs note for £12.38. I will refrain from repeating the swear words I've been using.

    Seeing as the customs limit is £18, BattleCat is going to get a charge unless the exchange rate is better than $1.67=£1. I think I'll add some stands to the next order and pay the ransom fee again. I'm still hoping Wun-Dar will have no declairable value (we paid for the subscription not the figure) therefor no customs charge when DR combine him with Trap-Jaw.

    Since 30.00 US dollars = 18.40 British pounds sterling today, woud I have the Tax calculated on the amount over the limit or the whole amount? ;-)

    BTW - anyone seen my Goddess? ;-P

    The tax would be on the whole amount PLUS £9 customs handling charge. Touch your toes everyone... HM Customs is about 'do' all of us.

    Well good for you! BTW "Smoczywabik" - malo nie spadlem z krzesla jak to przeczytalem!! :-D Belive me guys, the english translation of his polish nickname does not give it justice! It is ridiculously funny ;-)

    As for the tax - that's too bad! And it all seemed so perfect when Battlecat's price was stated as $20.. Now we're back to lottery again.. I wonder if it's not going to be cheaper to order all 3 items in one go (2xBattlecat +Trapjaw) shipping cost wise.
