It would be nice if Toy Guru or some one representing Mattel would actually give us a legit answer. What I am assuming is when we get charged for the figures, it actually doesn't go anywhere that exact day. I assume they have set days for shipping and just tell us ITS BEEN SHIPPED although it may be another 1-4 days before it actually travels.
Either way, if I can order something from Australia after I order from Matty and get it before...then something is broken over at Matty. Honestly, there are no excuses why it takes so long to get it. Also they make their own labels, so the date they printed it off would be on it. Post office never checks as I have sent items up that would say a date thats 6 days earlier than what I actually shipped it as.
My Solution? Mattycollector.CA. Canadian branch of Mattycollector.com. =3.
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 finally got October's day of sale stuff today.
I guess me complaining on here today did the trick haha, day of sale stuff just showed up. A buddies sub stuff in town came in yesterday. Mine had the Sweden sticker, which I find VERY hard to believe is from a swedish owned shipping warehouse in LA HAHA. Very unlikely. But I still can't imagine why they would send these to sweden first.
My October subscription items arrived on November 27th. NO customs fees. SO happy about that. Totally worth the wait.
Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.
You can join the Illumina Facebook page here!
It's not a Swedish warehouse, it's a Swedish postal exchange. Mail on the Move probably drives them to this postal exchange, and then they take over, do the customs paperwork, and pass them off to Canada Post.

Why would they set that up for the 3 or 4 Canadians 'overseas' that buy from them every month? They know we have so many pet Penguins to feed outside on our igloo farms, unless we are driving the wife around town on our Zamboni's to buy a new touque... we can wait for our figures. EH?

I found my NOV Matty order - back left corner fourth from the top....I hope it arrives soon!
Finally got my Oct shipment. Shipped October 12 arrived November 30th. Just wow. Nothing should ever take that long to ship.
OMG - I totally just got my Cyber Monday purchases! AMAZING!
...no, no I didn't. But I wanted to say it once, just to see how it felt, you know?
Never mind Cyber Monday...I haven't even got my frickin' shipping notice for the stuff I ordered last Wednesday.
I just got my October DOS stuff this afternoon. I never had to wait this long for matycollector stuff. I'm guessing that'll be the norm from now on :S
Just got nov sub items yesterday in NB
Took a long time to get october sub, october dos was fast though.
I never got the sept sub items, so i contacted matty and they sent me a replacement order for the package that never showed up
Slow, but so far i've got everything i ordered
