    I ordered the Temple of Darkness Sorceress on the 22nd and it hasn't been despatched yet.
    I'm not expecting them to hurry about it!

    I'm no DR apologist, but with Thanksgiving and the weekend they've had little chance to dispatch those orders yet.

    I didn't know Matty packages could come on Sundays.

    Where's my stuuuuuuuuffff? I'm normally really patient with DR but I feel like I'm the last UK'er on the boards to get my figures now.

    I've only ever had post on sunday back when the snow was so bad, it totally delayed all post completely. It was back when the UK was completely covered in snow! That's the only time that I remember...
    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.

    October's stuff has finally arrived at the depot and I've been stung by the higher Parcel Force clearance fee again. Even though the parcel's taken over a month to get here it's classed as 'express' because the last leg from Sweden was via a fast shipping service.

    This doesn't bode well for next year so I really hope we can change shipping options each month as promised. Depending on the cost of DHL, I'd be tempted to use them as parcels will arrive quicker, be tracked and only incur a £1.25 handling fee. Thing is, will we actually be able to see how much shipping by each service is going to cost each month in advance or will it just be guesswork?

    Customs 1, me 2!

    Came back from hols in Canada this morning, walked straight through Airport customs with my bags full of Duty Free - Christmas sorted! Got home to find my DOS Weapons pack and extra Rattlor had been delivered on the 20th, no charges, and the silver card for my sub Frostra, Rattlor and CyChop dated the 24th, so I popped down to the post office with my £15.

    I fixed Frostra's arms, very easy, didn't need to heat them just pulled straight off, switched them and then the hands.

    On top of all this my Masters comic #4 had also arrived. What a day!

    I ordered some figs from Matty on Black "Wednesday", and like others above, it still shows as in process
    If there's something strange in the neighbourhood, who you gonna' call? HE-MAN!!!!

    Yes - the huge discounts on items ordered only a month previous really annoyed me too.

    It pretty much made my decision up for me not to buy Granamyr in Dec and wait it out for future sales - same goes for the seemingly not particularly exclusive SDCC items!

    My DOS Oct items finally made it to London - I got a payslip-style letter from Parcel Force letting me know how much I owe in customs - a wallet-busting £38.
    This seems a little steep for a package of 7 figures? Or is that normal?
    I've never seen anyone else in this thread be charged that much!
    Now extremely worried about the other 3 large parcels that are on their way.

    Haven't done the maths, so I could be wrong, but for 7 figures it seems about right.

    Ordering seperate probably would have been cheaper, by avoiding customs.

    I always do if it's 4 figures or less, but if I'm making a large order I usually get it all together and hope for the best, if you get away with customs you save a lot on shipping.
    This is only the second time I've ever had to pay customs on MOTUC stuff.

    My Dekker and King Randor arrived today. I wasn't expecting them as it seemed too early compared with how long I normally wait. I work nights so it was a nice surprise when I woke up. I especially love King Randor.

    Castle Grayskullman also arrived in the post yesterday which I picked up from an eBay seller. He's easily one of my favourite of the entire line. Such a great figure.

    Still waiting on the following items from the 'Better than Black Friday' sale:

    Battle Cat
    Clawful
    Skeletor
    Battleground Evil-Lyn
    Evil-Lyn (original)
    Vykron (Space Ace)
    Man-at-Arms
    Stratos
    Hordak
    Battleground Teela
    Buzz Off
    TOD Sorceress
    Draego-Man
    Count Marzo
    Princess Adora
    Catra

    saw the RM man coming up the path with a brown matty box on Sat which i thought was my Nov sub, turned out it was the 2 CG men I ordered off an American guy on Ebay "Black Wednesday" after i missed out again on buying him from Matty (Price for both inc UK delivery cost less than Matty, he "mislabeled" the customs so arrived with no charges and took about 10 days to arrive! - he earned himself a saved seller status)



    My sub stuff arrived today also customs free -


    So my sub CG man joined his team


    Edit...

    all figures are perfect - tight joints, no paint splashes or black plastic showing
    If there's something strange in the neighbourhood, who you gonna' call? HE-MAN!!!!
