A lot of people are saying they don't want the stands. I hope that means there will be lots of those stands available in the marketplace when the time comes.
There is shipping for the stands, no tax, if anyone picks monthly, the first month will have shipping of 22.79 instead of the 13.79 for one figure.
So all us Canadians can compare:
1st month int postal shipping $22.79
2nd month int postal shipping $13.79
3rd month int Postal Shipping $30.72 <- Will have customs and duty as it is too expensive! $14.00 (DHL fee) + 13% Tax
1st QUARTER EXPRESS shipping $39.42 <- $14 (DHL fee) + 13% tax (24 delivery on March 15th!)
Savings $27+ dollars with Quarterly express - it is not even worth looking at int postal - 1st Quarter $71.99!!!! + 14 (DHL fee) + tax! + 5 week wait!!!!
I think somebody here should post their order and tell TG Digital River isn't shipping the stands out for free.
We have already seen the posted pictures of orders in MOTUManiac $200 giveaway thread, there are 2 items in January...one is free...both are shipping and some of the US customers are upset that the shipping for thier figure is over $6.45.
I'd give birth to baby Skeletors if our figures ship for $6 each!!!!
Well, somebody replied at the Mattycollector forums
So they will charge us, then refund us later. Dunno if I wanna go through with the hassle of getting the refund or not......
I forgot to mention the Swedish Extendar showed up on Monday, June 30th.
CHECK OUT MY BRAND NEW WEBSITE for my Akil and Saltfish comic strip, more to come soon!
I've got everything that I need, right in front of me! Life's a happy song people!
Fear is faith in failure
I don't care for the free stands so I will just wait until the Comic Con and save myself the headache. I can't purchase completely bind. For all you know the figures may go up to $30 a figure.

Got my Extendar from Sweden.
Ironmans Want List:
MOTUC: I want them all!!!!!!
Classic Line: Battle Ram, Wind Raider, Tower Tools, Eternia, Laser Power He-man, Laser Light Skeletor, Tytus and Megator.
Just did some quick math.... if we do quarterly, then we pay $570 (figures) + $46x4= $184 (shipping) + 33*4= $132 (taxes/duty) for a total of $886 for 18 items. That's $50 bucks per item this year.... maybe $55 since a lot of that is in american.
Oh well, gotta take the plunge.
My name is Pan . . . and I am the Man.
Well I just got the 2015 Sub with quarterly shipping! Not really looking forward to the many heman/skeletor variant...here's hoping this really is the last year!

Got Filmation Hordak today From SDCC buddy!
But still waiting on June Matty shipment...mail moves slow in the summer in Sweeden.
Quick question for my fellow Canadians, so we always talk about shipping costs etc in here so I just ordered my first hot toy from sideshow(preorder), what does shipping usually run for us here? And do you normally get hit with duty etc? You can Pm me with the answer, I don't want to sidetrack this thread. Thanks!
Pretty sure there site says fedex for Canadians which will guarantee import charges and whatever else the want to add
The funny thing is there's no hard and fast rule about import and tax charges on mail. Anything over $30 is subject to fees, but that doesn't mean you're going to get charged. You can just as easily get a $100 item with no charges, then one for $30 and get hit. That's straight from Canada Post. Most of the time if you're under $50 you're going to slip by. I go with monthly shipping and take my chances rather than a pretty much guaranteed hit from other shippers or a much larger quarterly charge. So far this year I've only had to pay extra once.
Personally I try to stay away from UPS, Fed Ex, DHL. I always end up getting charged brokerage/duty fees
I just subbed to the 2015 Eternia club, monthly...and then found this thread. I wanted my figures as soon as possible, but didn't want Express for the month because essentially the shipping would be as much as the figure itself so I went with int postal. So for my monthly figure, do you know how long it will take to come in on average? Someone above said it could be 5 weeks. Has anyone ever subbed to the monthly club from Canada?
Thanks for the info
Hello Fellow Canadians!
After skipping out from getting a sub for 2 years (and missing out on lots if cool figures in the process), I am considering getting a sub for this last year of MOTUC.
Financially, which shipping option ends up being cheaper? I know quarterly will be cheaper from a shipping perspective but then your have a better chance of having to deal with the added Canada Post duties. Monthly shipping may not have these customs fees.
Any advice is appreciated!
