    Is there any way to pay the tax direct rather than doing it through acursed royal mail?

    Hi Guys,

    Thought I would log in to the subscriptions part of mattycollector to check my "quarterly shipping subscription status" and see what it says but there is nothing there at all.
    Does anyone else with the quarterly shipping option have anything in the subscriptions section when they sign in to matty collector?
    Just wondering if I need to ring them up and see what is going on or if this is normal?

    There's nothing there in my account either.
    I'm not unduly concerned to be honest... based on Matty's previous track record I wouldn't expect to see it until the first shipment.

    It was indeed two-bad waiting for me at the collection office, but it was only one, despite me asking DR to combine my two subs!

    Can't they do anything right??!!

    Your sub will not appear on the My Subs page until the first shipment has shipped (around March 11th/12th)

    Have you changed your shipping over to DHL by contacting Matty? I think I remember you saying you ordered your 2014 sub to be shipped by International Post (apologies if I got that confused)

    Anyway the sub should be charged and ship between 10th-13th March and DHL usually takes 2-3 days. I have my mobile number on my Matty account, so usually get a text message from DHL advising me of the customs fee to pay, which I pay online at the DHL payments website. The package then arrives with me around 24-48 hours later (depending on whether it's right near the weekend that it arrives, which obviously slows it down)

    For a single sub, I expect the customs fee for Q1 to be 20% of $115 = £14.02 (or 20% of $174 = £21.21, if they charge VAT on shipping value too) + £5 DHL handling fee

    -£19.02 total (if no VAT is charged on shipping
    -£26.21 total (if VAT is charged on shipping)

    Hope this helps!

    It's getting on for a month since my replacement Sea Hawk and Geldor were sent out after the first lot never arrived. Maybe I'm just being paranoid but am I right in thinking I've seen quite a few stories on here before reporting that the replacement orders also just so happened to get lost in the post? Is there a chance they sometimes just tell you they sent a replacement but didn't actually do it?

    Glimmer, Modulok and the Mini He-Man and Mer-Man set arrived today.

    Glimmer is a beautiful figure and was well worth the wait.

    Haven't opened Modulok yet but the box art and packaging has a great vintage feel to it.

    Ordered the Minis of He-Man and Mer-Man on Friday via Early Access and I already have them! DHL is insanely fast at times.

    What a fantastic month.

    Christ - this is my first year subbing, it's only February, and Matty Collector are already doing my swede in! I'd appreciate some help guys:

    a) I have yet to recieve a shipping notice for Feb. Should I have done so by now?
    b) Is it possible to upgrade my shipping option to Express?

    Sure mate, here are some pics of my haul. I don't normally open my stuff as I'm mainly a MOC collector, so hope these will do for now.

    Pretty sure you should have received an email by now buddy. Maybe check your Spam folder in case your notice went to that? You can modify your address details on Matty's My Subscription page but if you want to change the actual shipping method to a faster one, I think you'll have to call them directly.

    Thanks Nephilim - they look cool. Usually I rip all of my stuff out of the boxes but I really like the mini masters box for some reason.
    I may leave mine in their plastic dungeon when they finally arrive!

    Cheers mate - nothing in the spam. I got a reminder that my subscription was about to renew on the 5th but then nothing else. Anyone tried to phone Matty Collector from the UK before because the number on the website doesn't work internationally = rubbish

    Have you checked your Matty account in your order history for an order submitted for the February stuff? What does your sub state on the my subs page?

    Emailing them is probably a better idea, but check your account first!

    DHL quarterly. It will then combine with the main sub in December to save even more on shipping

    As always DHL monthly is WAY TOO expensive and no point in International Post given how slow it is! (I can wait an extra month no problem for Double Trouble)
    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.

    So if I get the POP sub with the quarterly DHl shipping you reckon they will only combine the second (Oct-Dec) lot of figures with my main sub package?
    Hmmm, guess it's still the cheapest option. And that will be an awesome Christmas package!

    I went with quarterly DHL shipping for the POP sub.
    It says on the sales page that the first parcel (containing the first 4 figures) will ship separately to Club Eternia, and the second will be combined with the December delivery.

    In terms of price... I haven't worked it out. I think that if you already have a Quarterly DHL subscription to Club Eternia then it will work out cheaper over the course of the year. If you don't already have a sub, then getting the POP sub through a quarterly international post sub might be marginally cheaper. But only marginally.

    Either way, it's not "cheap" by any reasonable person's definition!
