    I've subbed again with shipping via DHL for 2014.

    The extra customs cost has been an issue; only one shipment has avoided customs and strangely it was the one that included Karatti and the FFM.
    I'd budgeted for the increase in shipping but to be stung nearly every month (£17.76 for Stonedar & Rokkon) has really battered my wallet.
    That said, the service has by and large been excellent and some months I've had the figures in hand before I've even got a shipping confirmation email!

    The quarterly shipping option should help cost wise. At the end of the day I just couldn't risk international post.
    THE KEY! GET THE KEY!

    Got a customs slip for £13.99 which I presume must be Clamp Champ and NA He-Man, bummer seeing as most people seem to have got them customs free this month.
    I hope my SDCC package slips through the net!

    I'd start with the most expensive ones such as Shadow Weaver, Fisto and Teela if I were you. They will only continue to go up in price!
    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.

    Received Castaspella and Shokoti this morning. Exceptional figures with great detail. Only occurred to me when they arrived what a cool parallel it was that they're both female spellcasters, each representing good and evil. Fitting they arrived together.

    House of Shokoti Part 2 is one of my favourite episodes so I'll probably spend most of the day looking at her. She'll no doubt take pride of place on my shelf.

    Also signed up for the 2014 sub a few days ago with fast shipping. Life wouldn't be nearly as interesting without my He-Man toys arriving each month so hope it goes through.

    Yeah I've done a fair bit of lurking on the Marketplace lately. I'm dying to get a jet sled set and seeing as I'm new to this I've gotta ask : Is it a normal DOS/Pot luck item or sub exclusive ? Plus do they do postage discounts if you buy more than one item ?

    It's a non-subscription item, which means that it will be available for early access to 2013 subscribers. There are postage discounts for buying multiple items.

    Has a price be announced for it yet? I'd like multiples but I suspect the price will mean I'm only going to end up buying one. Having it come with a figure was not a great idea on Matty's part.

    It will be available to non-subscribers such as yourself on the regular sale day, providing it doesn't sell out during Early Access. I'm not sure how likely that is.

    I could be wrong but I think the price is $35, which seems very reasonable to me!

    I was a late starter of collecting this line but have just about managed to catch up - I've mainly stuck with the more A list characters I remember from the Filmation series. Not bothered with the likes of Vikor, He-ro and NA He-man etc. I have used ebay mainly and as I display out of the packaging some figures are a little cheaper. I paid alot for Teela & Shadowweaver about £70 each. But had to have them lol I've not looked for a while but I'm guessing they've got more expensive. Still after Beastman. Good time to sub! Lots of A list characters coming

    - - - Updated - - -

    I've been looking for some tiered stands to put inside my 'Detolf' display cabinet but not having much luck! I've seen some being used in the 'Display' thread but cant seem to find any to buy in the UK. Does anyone else use them or can recommend a place to pick a few up? Thanks.

    I've decided to sub this year. I've went with the basic monthly shipping option. I get the items shipped to a different address though as I'm away for a good bit each month.

    Purchased a second sub, picked the quartely basic shipping option. Some of the figures in 2014 I'd like to keep loose and MOC, the rest I will probably re-sell.

    Got my Castas and Shokoti's yesterday, both are stunning figures but Casta edges it for me. Her face sculpt is probably the best female face out the line so far - over Netossa and Teela. No QC issues and all tight joints - very happy with them.

    Just noticed that I got a sub-renewal/order e-mail for Casta and Shokoti on the 12th, but have yet to get a shipping confirmation mail.
    Never had a 10 day+ wait between the two before... has this happened to anyone else?

    The Jet Sled/Sky High has been confirmed as a $50 item - with shipping (around $30) and the likely customs (maybe another $25) it is going to be an expensive item to get hold of for us UK fans - probably around £70 for a single one!!

    At that price I've decided against it - I reckon it will be something that won't sell too quickly and may take the chance to pick one up down the line at one of the sales. If not I can live without it.
