    I only buy one figure at a time so 'International Post' seems the cheapest option for me. I've just got the FILMation sub and opted for the same shipping method. I can wait 2 weeks and save a few £. I hear DHL shipping is cheaper for Castle Greyskull? Can anyone confirm this? If so is there a way to change this on the Pre order as I'm certain i selected International Post


    So i checked my confirmation email for pre ordering Castle Greyskull and shipping and handling is $94.30 (£60) Is this similar to what other people have? Can't remember if this is Internation post or DHL lol Also could this be subject to change??

    Thanks

    I just went over to BBTS and put Jitsu in my basket and at checkout, shipping is $25.49, which is around £16.50. No idea why your getting quoted so much for one figure With BBTS, you'd need to use the 'pile of loot' feature and order a few items to make it worth it I guess.

    and I just did the same with Netossa and was quoted $19.74 (though it did say the Jitsu shipping was an estimate) So standard shipping for a figure is under $20 for me...

    I think ttrackable DHL method for CG actually works out cheaper than the untracked International post in this instance - from memory it was around $95-$98 per castle. This and the huge customs/duty hit is pretty much the reason why I decided not to pick one up - over $400 in total seemed too much to me.

    I was on the fence but after seeing the Castle I don't feel it's worth the £250+ it will be for me with shipping and customs. Shame really as it would be nice to have. S&H for me would have been £60 too lee-ra.

    Ram Man and Jitsu arrived on Monday. Had to pay £16 to DHL but not too fussed. I'm extremely pleased with both of these figures. I ordered a second Ram Man during Day of Sales as well as it's fairly obvious he'll be difficult to find again down the line.

    Will probably sign up to the Filmation sub at some point tonight, been meaning to just not had time.

    Also voted on the characters I'd prefer on the Grayskull box art which was really cool. They had lots of options but I was fairly traditional and opted for vintage characters. I actually pre-ordered two castles but was only sent one voting code. I've been in touch with the guys at the .org though, so fingers crossed they'll get Matty to send me another code so I can vote again.

    Got a customs ransom note of £15 today from the Royal Mail. Must be Ram Man and Jitsu. I normally don't get caught for anything under $70. Shame about the fee but very excited to get them both.

    I haven't received anything yet. I'm expecting a ransom note though. I also ordered a KK, hope they come soon.

    Got my ransom note today which I'm guessing is for Rammy and Jitsu.

    Just rang my local depot to see if they had anything and they received a parcel today. £24.12 customs fee!

    It may be Rammy and Jitsu, could be some other stuff I've ordered. Hmmm.

    On a slightly different note, I emailed Mattel VIP and have requested that my shipping method be changed to DHL. I'll let you all knows how that goes!

    That's unfortunate I tend to order just one at a time to avoid the charges and been lucky so far i guess!

    jeese - I've only ordered the one, RamMan - just hope he slips through! The price soon racks up with these customs.

    Received my Sub Ram Man and Jitsu this morning by USPS slow post, no customs!

    Not had chance to check them out fully, but anyone know why the picture of Stratos on the card back has a Gold belt?
    If there's something strange in the neighbourhood, who you gonna' call? HE-MAN!!!!

    My luck seems to have run out.
    I have £15.18 to pay to collect a parcel, and it can only be Ram Man and Jitsu.

    But then again.... IT'S RAM-MAN AND JITSU!!!
    So I don't feel too hard-done-by.

    From what I remember the gold belt was an early paint-app for Stratos.
    All the ones released on Mattycollector had the red belt, although some of the ones with the gold belt made it through to the secondary market.
    That's right isn't it? Anyone know more?
