    United Kingdom Collector's Delivery Thread

    Have any fellow UK fans received their Classics Stratos yet?

    I ordered him they day he went on sale, as I do with all Classics, but I still haven't received mine. Ordinarily they take a while, but generally not as long as this, so I'm just curious if any others have got theirs yet?

    Chris here...

    I received my Stratos about half an hour ago!

    Take care...
    Are you fed up with the problems you've been experiencing buying from MattyCollector.com?

    If so, please consider joining the Facebook group Mattel Toys - Petition for Change, to present a united voice to Mattel calling for change.

    MOTU Classics is an amazing toyline, and collecting it should be fun. Let's try and make a difference.

    Same here as Chris, my Stratos just turned up at the door about 10-15 minutes ago

    The packaging was the best yet with foam and paper in there to keep it safe.

    On a related note, Stratos is my least favourite figure yet as I've never really been a Stratos fan, but they did a good job on him.

    Bring on Squiddish Rex!

    If some people's Stratos turned up today, I'll keep my fingers crossed for today or the next couple of days.

    It's not completely their fault, but Mattel really need to work on their overseas sales.

    I recieved my stratos today (7th March). All my previous orders were abotu 20 days.

    He's brilliant - I wasn't a huge Stratos fan (Probably because he's gray) but he's much better than the 200x version.

    Hopefully in a month I'll hav my firt ever Faker

    I ordered mine on release date too - I think I was one of the first to order, looking at the old messages on the board ... I was getting a bit anxious myself to be honest, but if people have got theirs today (7th) then I should expect to see him on Monday or Tuesday if all goes well ...

    Yep - no need to panic just yet

    Just like everybody else, I receive my figures today and so if you haven't receive them yet, you'll more than likely get them next week

    I take it you mean the wing adjustment?
    Its dead easy. fill a mug with boiling water, put his hands up to just above the writ bands in the water and leave him for a minute. This is to melt the glue. dry off his hands and gently ease the wristbands away from the arm. you can then position them any way you want
    What next? It seems every month lately there is something..

    Monday afternoon and I'm still waiting for mine

    I ordered two so am hoping I don't get a customs charge - I got away with it when I ordered He-Man and Beast Man.

    Got mine yesterday (10th - Monday) ...

    He's pretty much perfect in every way ... if I was being critical, some of the joints are a little loose, but nothing major ...

    Very pleased
