    Got a card from the postman asking for £13 today, which is probably for Vikor & Venkman. I'd ordered the Guards separately, so i'm still waiting for them.

    EDIT: The note for the Guards just arrived; £18.01.

    Typical, off all day yesterday and the bloody ransom note arrived today! And this is the kicker, the delivery office is only open on Monday or Friday! Still I paid the £18.01 (where's the 1p from???) fee on line so my 2 sets of guards should be here by Saturday, hopefully. Looking forward to them.

    Forgot today was release day so missed out on a spare Bow, absolutely hate Tytus, very poor release and I'm happy with my sub Shadow Beast for the moment. Got a bunch of extras/spares from Ebay last night as well so happy about that as well.

    Just had to pay £13 to get my Guards. Paying £13 on something worth $40 is just too much. Having to pay half the value of the goods again to recieve them is just a disgrace.

    Got my ransom note(s) today. Because of the DR screw up my Guards and Stands shipped separately so £13 + £15.50 = £28.50 to pay! Not a happy camper.

    Did anyone else get the messed up delivery note yesterday? DR strikes AGAIN!

    Bow $23.93
    Shadow Beast $42.11
    Preternia Disguise He-Man $6.06

    i got that note too via e-mail! ... really confused me actually! ... plus, i'm rubbish with maths/numbers ...

    i guess the total of those sums is what we have paid for the figures in total anyway? ...

    I got the same email from Matty.

    The total of those amounts comes to $72.10 - which is the same amount as my invoice on mattycollector, so at least that tracks.

    However the cost of the products is only $50.
    Shadow Beast ($30) + Bow ($20)
    We've already paid for Preternia He-Man.

    So that means the cheapo postage on this package is $22.10.

    That seems like a lot to me, as everything else I've ever had from Matty (including the two packs of Palace Guards) was only charged $9.95 postage. I guess it might be the size of the box they've used.

    yeah the size of shadow-beast means they have to use a bigger box to accommodate all the figures, which means quite a jump in the shipping cost ...

    when i bought the GB TRU 4-Pack before christmas, the shipping box was huge compared to the product size, but it was the only one available at the USPS that would fit the package in ... so my shipping fees were quite high ...

    I was hoping that this would mean that they had been posted seperatly, otherwise we'll get a ransom note again next month.

    I'm glad I never ordered the 2nd set of guards I was considering

    HMRC are killing the lien!

    Paid my £18 and a penny

    and opened my 2 sets an hour ago - I can't remember the last time I had so much fun with toys! I've been mix and matching the guards and they are amazing - I've also put my 2nd MAA into the mix as Clamp Champ and added Teela. I've got them posed now but I don't know where the hell I'm going to put them after that.

    Are there any specialty shops that sell MOTUC in London? I'm headed there this weekend and wouldn't mind some temptation!

    I didn't, but only because the package got delivered to me by accident. There was still a sticker on the box stating the £18 customs fee.

    I don't think any of the guards managed to slip through completely. Doesn't bode well for $70 value package that is currently on its way to me.

    £13 for my guards. Seems it's only ever individual figures that escape customs for me.

    If they are anything like the specialty toy shops in Norwich, the MOTUCs will be £40+.

    Individual figs escape customs as they are below the £18 limit - anything under this doesnt attract VAT.

    I've seen a few of the MOTUC figures on sale in Forbidden Planet in London but they only seem to have a few every now and then.

    I saw about 4 of them in there (She-Ra & King Randor were 2 of them) for about £39.99 (this was a good 6 months ago though).
