I think I am giving up trying to understand the mail system...I know I get way too many things through the mail, but with the US new First Class mail...more expensive by several dollars...I have had people in the last few weeks send 'First Class' packages that have changed into both regular mail and Expresspost in the CP system...(2 days from Vancouver to Ottawa), averaging 5 to 6 days delivery (including weekends) from Texas / Miami / Indianna....and the first class now has tracking for every package???? But Snakeface is over 2 weeks so far...and the shipping was double the cost. Matty is getting screwed by DR for shipping...I am really starting to think that Matty Collector is stuck with a lemon shipping 'deal' from DR.
Thankfully several hundreds in content, many over $40 and there was customs on only one package - a $62 package????
No Snakeface yet today...all the mail isn't all here yet - superbox stuff is delivered but the door stuff has not been dropped off yet...
9.95 brokerage fee for Canada post.
13% HST in Ontario on $115US should be around $15.09.
i really doubt you will get a refund cuz they declared the invoice total is $115. they probably included the price for the sub figure for the DC sub, which is $30.

Thanks! Manage to tape the form back together
My tax came out to $15.09, and handling fee is $9.95.
I use the online calculator and my tax is only suppose to be $ $5.68, since the value of the item is only $43 ( Snakeface $25, Larfleeze $18, Mallah $0)
So there is no chance to get refund on the handling fee i supposed???

Since the sticker with the declaration was on the very edge of the box, most of the information on the side were rubbed off for some reason. You can't really make out any number, then someone brilliant decided to write the amount on the sticker at $115. It's really frustrating.
I check my other boxes from Sweden and all the declaration were written down, instead of it being printed. In short, digital river mess up with the $115 declaration. sigh! Bad enough this was an expensive month thanks to the Mallah figure (and my brain figure also has really bad paints)! Thanks a lot matty!

Man, still waiting on my Snake Face. Guess it'll be next week now.
Hey guys - just a heads up if any of you are thinking about changing your shipping address to a US address, make sure you phone in and do it. I thought I was good to go just changing it under the "My Subscriptions" section of Matty. I even got my order and shipping confirmations. But it turns out that the shipping method is still set to International Post and it doesn't recognize International Post shipping to a US address. So it never got sent. I got a new order confirmation for Snake Face today so hopefully all is fixed.
I think I'm letting my sub die this month. I don't want to spend over $100 for 4 figures I care little about. I have a feeling the FFM will be avail for cheap on ebay, Karatti is ok but I don't care much for NA, if I want them I will go for after market sales. same with any future figures.
I feel so guilty about this though! like I am betrayng the horsemen and MOTU. but things are tight I can't afford to pay so much right now esp for figures I don't care about. gotta do what I gotta though.

I KIND of want the figures this month but not really, I don't know, maybe I'm done collecting at least finished like i used to. I started collecting toys again with the Hasbro new batman adventures line (after Timm redesigned the characters) and I haven't looked back since. it's mostly been lines i love but now and again it's figures that just look great. Fun but expensive hobby and it takes up a lot of space. I am a pretty good sculptor myself...maybe i will sculpt the things I want. Who knows where i go from here.
I have to get Clamp Champ Shokoti Batros and Mantenna though. but I can do it outside of Matty
The only thing that keeps me from canceling is the no doubt crazy after market prices for Mantenna, Shokoti, Icer, etc.
Still love MOTUC, and seeing the pic of octavia makes me feel worse about letting the sub die. but I can't afford this month's figures and I don't really want them. Gotta make my stand somewhere I guess.
