    Hi DWVT1978 - I can't believe that we have to wait so long to get our figs. If I buy on Ebay I get figs in 2 weeks and that is with US Standard Mail.

    Still waiting for my Modulok. Been subscribed to the line since subscriptions opened up. Arrivals has been pretty good, but with some post office strikes, I've missed about three packages in total. At least Mattycollector refunds me when they get the package back.

    Hi Dragnor

    A friend of mine only received his Glimmer and Modulok yesterday!!! I know it's crazy with the Post Office Strikes.

    It is crazy!! I have a theory that they don't send it to us directly and that is why it takes so long. I've had parcels that were cleared in Germany and France and then sent to me. I also get e bay stuff within 2 weeks. Trying to fix this would be near impossible though. So, I rather leave it as is. The DHL option is very tempting but it ups you figure price by R100 up. So I rather wait. I've been lucky a few times getting it within three weeks but I've also received figures 8 weeks and once 9 weeks later. Close to estimated arrival time I go to the Post office every single day! LOL

    That is very bad Dragnor!! I'm lucky in that none of my stuff has ever been sent back before. I've also only lost one parcel and that time they were still doing replacements so I have a 100% success rate. I'm lucky!! Good luck! I really hope you get yours soon. I opened my Modulok last night and he is awesome. He is posing next to the TV for a day or two before he joins the others in the man cave

    I'll check the post office. Maybe they didn't send someone out with notifications, what with all the rain. And I'd like to pose Modulok in the house, but the wife only allows action figures in the man cave. I've tried sneaking some in, but no luck so far.

    Thanks for the advice on going to the post office. I normally wait on the slip, as I work in Joburg and live in Pretoria, so time to go is difficult. But I guess I could makan exception for Modulok!

    For interest sake, I accidentally picked the expensive shipping option the first year of my subscription ($20 figure + $70 shipping. Yes, really). Couldn't fix it, but I must say, I got my figures within 2 days from coming out in the US, delivered to my door. I now wait at least a month since I used the cheaper method. At times I'm tempted to got back to the more expensive option, but paying three times the price of the action figure for shipping is not really worth it.
