    Got my two Trap Jaws today! Just had to have a Kronis too as I do love the Prison Star story from the original annual.

    As with a lot of you Trap Jaw was one of my favs as a kid but now we can finally pose him like this!!!



    Made up I am!!

    I wish I had gotten another Trapjaw now too to keep as Kronis. I love that annual story too.

    Got my two boxes of Grayskull stands this morning.
    So now I'm only waiting on Battle Cat.

    The stands are not quite as awesome as I was hoping they'd be, but I'm still kicking myself that I didn't buy more than 10 when I had the chance.

    I also think I'll be snaffling a second Trap Jaw when he's reissued. I think I might prefer Kronis to Trap Jaw. I've not been moved to get a second Mer Man, Man-at-Arms or Teela: but I think Trap Jaw will be the exception.

    Mr. Postman brought my first of two Battle Cats this morning.

    Great condition, except his helmet is half on, half off, so expect I'll be using my second one for MOC.

    But so far, unlike last month, nothing has gone walkies for me in the post, fingers crossed.

    Hope others get their BCs soon.

    EDIT: Oh, forgot to add, didn't get caught by customs. Seems to be really pot luck!

    I hope my two Battlecats come seperate so I can hopefully avoid a customs charge. Good to know he is here now, should get mine Tuesday if it comes the same time scale as the others I have had.

    Well I think due to the value of Battle Cats, even singally, they might get picked out for customs, but in my experience, it seems very pot luck.

    Did you order them seperately? I've heard some reports that even with people that order them seperately, Matty / DR have bundled them together if they were ordered with the same name! Hence I always order two seperately in different names.
    (Yes I know, we shouldn't have to go to all this fuss just to get our figures)

    They better not do that when I order 2 of something So far I've only done it the once and both figures arrived seperately. But if I end up with a parcel that is slapped with customs because DR decided to rip me off (with shipping) by sending together I'll just not accept the parcel and get a full refund instead via my CC company. I love these figures, but they are expensive enough as it is!

    Oh and no Battlecat for me as yet..
    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.

    I ordered them one after the other, I didn't think my first order went through as I thought the card it automatically used was out of funds so I ordered another using the card I ment to use but turned out they both worked and I have two on the way.

    That's superb news that Battle cat is starting to turn up.
    I am fully expecting to get completely destroyed by customs on my order.

    got my Trap-Jaw on Tuesday 9th, just haven't had chance to post the message on here until now ...

    i think it's safe to say he's my new favourite MOTUC figure! he is absolutely fantastic - i think he is the best figure produced so far ... the detail and likeness between this and the original are stunning ...

    he also reminds me the most of my old toy collection, as he was always one of my favourites ...

    Not bad at all.

    Though I am still willing to sell my carded and boxed Adora and Teela, both at £20 (plus postage too). If anyone else is interested just give me a shout.

    Just so you know guys - I was ordering 3 BA He-Mans and 1 Beast Man one after the other paying each time with the same CC. They all have been delivered in one go in 4 separate boxes. You have to remember that each time you place an order a new order number is being created that is being sent to the factory. They cannot combine orders because each time you pay separate charge for delivery that would be smaller if figures were combined, resulting in a avalanche of complaints for overcharging on shipping costs (that's also the reason why they cannot send the subs with orders placed on bonus figures) since they have separate numbers and they have to be all accounted for - one package = one order number so you do not have to worry - no one will combine figures into one box so that you end up paying tax.
    That's actually the only way to make sure (with standard figures) that you won't be charged the customs tax. And when I did a quick comparison it turned out that on 4 figures the difference in price was something like $8 cheaper in combined shipping so way below any customs charge I would incur making this method so much plausible. I'm not even going to mention that in the worse case scenario where my package would be lost I would loose 4 figures at once and this way there were 4 separate boxes - all the more chances if they loose something it's highly unlikely they would loose all 4 of them.. ;-)

    I just received my subscription renewal email for March and noticed that I have been charged $4.49 tax on the order. I have contacted Matty - awaiting response.

    Has this happended to any other UK sub holders?

    Just got my 2x sub renewals through too, and I got charged tax as well.

    It's happened on a few previous months, and is normally refunded. But it shouldn't happen at all!

    I also got my sub renewal today. Guess what? Taxed as well. This is like the 3rd time these idiots have made that mistake. Couple this with the Battle Cat, Trap Jaw and Moss Man chaos and what a shower of incompetent twits Digital River and Matty are.

    Yup, taxed here on the sub too. I am speechless at the ongoing incompetence and repeat after repeat of problems such as this.

    I hoped Battlecat would arrive to take the edge off, but no sign of the green kitty...
