    You got BA? Excellent! Hopefully they will start to trickle in now.

    My single Adora arrived. Paint's pretty good and her arms aren't too bent.

    Yep, I ordered Adora, reissue Beast Man, and x3 BA He-Man figs. All arrived together with no customs charge.

    I got Adora on Thursday.

    I've also had BA He-man for about 2 weeks, and I didn't even use the expensive international shipping option.

    I cheated and bought it while I was on holiday in Florida.

    Hmm, i don't get it. I wait about 5 to six weeks for every figure, and i live in austria.

    It also seems that my reissue Skeletor and Animal Man got lost on the way here.

    Haven't had much time to get on the forums this week, but just to report, both of my Battle Armor He-Mans arrived this morning. Mint condition, and I like the metallic effect on the torso armor.

    No sign of my 2x rr Beast Mans yet, and after I received my first Adora (sub) on Monday, no sign of the second one (also sub) yet, which does slightly worry me as I'd expect them to arrive around the same time - but then, I get worried every month!

    Recieved Adora today, no BA HM yet. I like Adora, great figure, one arm is a little warped but no biggie. I wish HM came with the same sword Adora has, just without the stone and obviously bigger.

    My first rr Beast Man arrived this morning. Again, mint condition and good paint job.

    Already got my 2x BA He-Man, just waiting on second Beast Man and second Adora now.
    For some reason, I've got a bad feeling about Adora - I received my first one last Monday, and would like to think that they would have been dispatched at the same time. Of course, with Matty / DR, who knows!!

    Glad to see the BA HM's are starting to turn up.

    With all the 2009 SDCC MOTU Art Book Loan Program threads popping up would anybody kind enough to do a UK one? It would be very much appreciated.

    My second rr Beast Man arrived again this morning. Just waiting on my second sub Adora now. And I really am getting worried - got my first Adora over a week ago, and would expect them to turn up roughly the same time.

    Oh blimey, don't set that off again I can't imagine them making a programme about how good the Royal Mail is. You might as well say all restaraunts are unhygenic, or all police are corrupt, etc. -- amounts to the same thing.

    Got my adora in. God DAMN her sword was bent. The Full Elton as it were. Some hot water sorted it right out though. I'm a bit put out by the fact that her hair pretty much restricts any head movement aside from looking down/side-side. If you want her to look up you can forget it.

    Reg Royal mail. paid £12 customs on 2 figures, but i got a large box of 10 matty figures coming to me from a friend tomorrow via parcel force from the US, £15 customs all in, including £8 parcel force clearing charge. A wee bit of disparity there don't ya think.

    Eamon's got a point I agree with about the program - it showed my local sorting office as the case study and showed me exactly why I probably lost stuff in the summer - the package handling bits were pretty horrific and the rest just demonstarted how easy it is to rip valuables off and not get caught - not reassuring viewing if you rely on the buggers to deliver your precious through the door to you.........

    And no BA He in London yet - just in case anyone was wondering.

    Those shows merely confirm what I had always knew.

    I've had this opinion since I worked there for a few weeks as a temp when I first moved to England to make ends meet.
    Then there was that time I went to pick up my Conan figures only to find the guy kicking my box around on the floor only to stop when I pointed out that it was my parcel he was kicking around.
    Then there was that spat of getting the cards through the door even though I work from home.

    It's not a hard job and they get paid for work they do not do. ie. they get paid for 10 but actually only work 5.
    I would put good money that all of our figures (still missing two goddess) are not with us due to laziness and carelessness.

    One of my Adora's arrived this morning! From first impressions she is the best figure to date, however I still haven't opened her yet. Waiting on my other to arrive just incase that has a bashed up bubble/card or poor paint job, as I'll keep the best condition one unopened.

    It's cool they are turning up before the next items go on sale I hate ordering new stuff before I received the previous months figure
    8 figures I still need: 8/Perfuma (for completeness of POP ONLY!), 7/Filmation Tung Lashor, 6/Saurod, 5/Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina, 4/Peekablue, 3/Hunga the Harpy, 2/Filmation Clawful, 1/Dylamug.

    Chris here...

    Still no Adora for me, and consequently I'm beginning to get antsy...hopefully she'll turn up soon so I can stop worrying!

    Take care...

    Did you get her sub or regular?

    For that matter, has anyone else here not received their sub yet?

    As I've said above, my first Adora (sub) arrived over a week and a half ago, but no sign of my second (also sub) and I'm starting to worry now.
    I'm luckier than some in that I haven't yet lost a figure in the post, but I fear that this may be my first!

    I don't have a subscription, I just ordered her from Matty on the day of her release - can't remember when she shipped, but I'm surprised not to have her by now...

    To date I've never had a MOTUC figure get lost in the post - it would absolutely kill me if Adora, the figure I've wanted most, were to be the first figure not to make it!

    Take care...

    I'm still waiting on my second Adora (regular order) and I have faith she will arrive in the next couple of days I wouldn't start worrying yet as this is quite early compared to previous months when the UK shipments have turned up, up to 2 weeks after the next sale date!!

    Got my B.A. He Man on Tuesday. I was initially a little underwhelmed by him. However, once I gave him the double smash armour and the 200x power sword he became Bad Ass He Man and I was won over.

    Beast Man reissue and BA He-Man arrived this morning. Got goosebumps as they brought back childhood memories of collecting MotU. Awesome. That is all.
