    Red card through the door today, saying the package is too big and no charge. Really hope it's for the Rock Warriors, because it means they got through, but will probably be SOH
    Tweet Me!

    I've just changed my profile picture because we got Geldor in MOTUC!

    Ah man, people are getting Casta and Shokoti already?
    In the past everyone used to get their stuff with a few days of each other, so if people started reporting things arriving I knew mine would probably arrive soon, but these days there's sometimes weeks between everyone's arrivals. Getting your figures a week or two late and being charged upwards of £10 for the privilege is really putting a dent in my enjoyment of this line.

    Custom note came through the door today, not sure if it's the Rock People or Castaspella and Shobboby.

    Paid the ransom this morning. Castaspella looks great but there's some awful paintwork on Shokoti. The gold paint has been slapped on with little care, especially on the skull.

    I'm still waiting for SDCC sale stuff and Spirit of Hordak which both shipped before August subs were charged! Yet folks are now getting their August sub stuff? Doesn't make sense!
    8 figures I still need: 8/Perfuma (for completeness of POP ONLY!), 7/Filmation Tung Lashor, 6/Saurod, 5/Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina, 4/Peekablue, 3/Hunga the Harpy, 2/Filmation Clawful, 1/Dylamug.

    I wonder if it's arriving with a customs charge and they aren't sending out a card notifying you of the customs fees? I know folks have had this problem in the past...

    Had to pay £11 for my Hordak! Always fun. I'm considering never using Matty again.. i buy from eBay or here and it almost never happens. With them, most of the time!

    Castaspella and Skokoti arrived yesterday.
    £14.37 charge, though.

    Still... Castaspella: what a triumph! Love the sculpt.

    Webarella arrived yesterday with a £11.18 customs charge and Spirit of Hordak has arrived today also with an £11.18 charge. Yet to pick Hordak up though. This proves to me I made the right choice going with dhl for the 2014 sub!

    I really feel it for the folks paying customs fees every month on their 2013 sub items! This current government are rotten for putting the theshold down to £15!

    I agree, I've had no issue with DHL this year. I did go for the cheaper shipping for the Mini Masters however as a test to see if I got away with not getting stung - and I did for £12.00!

    OK, this is new - got a letter through the door from Parcel Force. It's a customs charge of £22.79!
    I imagine this is for my Rock Warriors and Mini Masters. Seems extremely high.
    And why Parcel Force? Normally I get the red/gray Royal Mail card when I have a charge.
    Anyone else get one of these? Why have I been charged so much?
    This customs situation gets worse and worse every month

    It may have come via Parcel Force rather than Royal Mail as it's a biggish parcel. They may also have charged a £13.50 handling fee instead of £8 which has happened to me a couple of times. The higher rate is for 'express' parcels which is a cruel joke when they've taken a month to arrive. Maybe the last leg from Sweden is classed as express...

    Well the inconsistent customs charges strike again. After no customs on my filmation sub Shokoti I got a customs card for £11.18 for Club Eternia sub Castaspella. Both packages were posted on the same day and had the same value and go through the same sorting office. Mental. But at least I got away with one of them.
    Like a lot of you I am looking forward to the quarterly DHL shipping next year. Hope everyone elses turns up soon.

    So it works out that I will have paid £97 for the SDCC items.
    That's like £35 per Rock Warrior and £15 each for the teeny tiny mini figs!

    Does anyone know how much shipping for the Rock Warriors alone was? I paid around $38 for them along with the Mini Masters, hefty charge.

    When does Early Access Start today?

    Okay, after missing Strobo due to my own stupidity I'm getting slightly paranoid.
    Early Access opens at 4pm for us today, right?

    I paid $38 for shipping the Rock Warriors via DHL. While I can't remember the exact figure for standard shipping, I do remember that DHL was only $8 more than standard shipping (which was why I chose it). So I think it must have been about $30.
