    Nope, no day of sale stuff for me in Mississauga, either. Really let down, lost my job this week and not even any toys to perk me up.

    Hey, did anybody see this over at the Matty forums?

    http://forums.mattycollector.com/eve...7/m/4201087887

    I have done alot of shipping and in all my years have never heard of this. Still does not explain why it takes a month to get stuff up here. They have their shipping so messed up it makes your head spin. Talk about re-inventing the wheel.

    Yeah, I guess that's a logical business practice, it just means that Mail on the Move is that much worse of a shipping company.

    Oh well, only two more months of waiting before my DHL subs kick in.

    doesn't explain why it takes 5-6 weeks to ship a package that should take 7-10 business days.

    i don't understand.. this answer is bogus.. and doesn't explain the extended period of time.. and the funny part is you can't say customs is holding it up because rarely are we hit with customs charges.. it would be a straight trip from the US to Canada.. we need to find out why it takes so long to arrive.

    ^^ Exactly.
    I expect some BS excuse about customs or Canada Post. We know it's not Canada post, based on the dates on the customs forms. We know it's not customs, b/c everything goes through customs, yet nothing else takes that long. And every other country has customs as well, but they are getting their figures first despite being overseas. The only way that's possible is if ours are shipped last or held somewhere for an extended period of time.

    lol, only two more months until my slow-shipped sub kicks in.
    I ended up going with UPS this month, and will next month as well. Might as well use it while I can.

    It's a sucky answer in that we're basically stuck with crappy slow shipping, but Hoff has a point that DHL might be quicker next year.

    Anyone have any experience with DHL? Do they have 'brokerage' fees like UPS? If so, I hope their brokerage charges are at least cheaper than UPS'.......

    this i would agree with.. they must hold on to these packages in a warehouse somewhere then ship em all out to Canadian customers.. i can see if it was a few people but just about every Canadian fan out there that is getting these figures from Matty has the same issue 6 weeks to ship.. my GOD.. if i ship to Sweden via Boat.. it's 6 weeks..

    so today I finally got my He-Man/Battle Cat party packs.
    They shipped out on October 12th... oddly enough no Sweedish PO Box sticker.. so what was the over a month long delay about?
    I expect my October sub tomorrow then.. hopefully.
    This is just ridiculous

    I'm thinking Mail On The Move just hands out our parcels to hitchikers heading North, then hopes for the best.

    They do, but the research I did when buying a sub indicates that they are significantly lower than UPS', which are the highest of any service I believe.

    The biggest downside is that you'll get hit with customs every time, regardless of value. But it's just your provincial tax plus whatever the brokerage fee is.

    It must be Frabjous Day, because I got my day of sale BA He-Man, Frosta, Rattlor, and weapon pack. Not only was there no customs, they even managed to get the box in the community mailbox which is exactly the same size as the box.

Inter-galatical express shipping... 3 weeks, and yet.. i sit here and ponder on why my DOS from Matty has still not arrived.. MMMMMM.. i guess they are further away .. go figure

    that sounds like the most logical answer we will probably ever receive! lol

    My October sub FINALLY arrived today.
    I'm glad the Voltron Sub is done now though, b/c the addition of the Voltron plus my MOTUC sub was causing me to pay customs every time.
