    Do you think we will start receiving Dec 15th figures before Christmas?

    Do you think we'll get them before Christmas? I was just wondering if I should buy a back-up gift just to make sure I have something to give. Thoughts?

    Only if you did next day or 2 day would it be a guarantee, best estimate would be right before since it normally takes 4-5 business days for UPS Ground to arrive and most everyone is look at a shipment date of today-Friday

    Most everyone I would think would get theirs around the 22 or 23, with christmas shipping can never be certain

    That's why I did mine next day. It was expensive, but worth it to me since I wanted my Goddess and Skeletor before Christmas!

    See, with 3 figs I couldn't afford the faster shipping. I did the normal UPS delivery. Gulp. I hope they get here.

    I used the normal UPS Ground option and both figures will be here on the 21st.

    Yeah, if it ships late today it should be the 22nd and if it ships Thursday it should be the 23rd

    I think UPS delivers on Christmas Eve so unless you figs ship Friday or Saturday they "should" arrive

    I choose the regular shipping option, and it always manages to get here exactly a week from the day I ordered. That would be west coast to east coast.

    Depends where you live.

    I live somewhat near California, so my Matty orders are arriving tomorrow.
    If you live on the east coast, then you're looking at still getting them before christmas next week, provided they shipped yesterday or today.

    I have standard UPS ground and my subscription order is supposed to get here Dec. 21st. I'm going to have to put a hold on the order once it's here and pick it up at the distribution center because DR still can't get my address right but hey…it's coming.

    Sub Randors seem to be shipping right out; mine's on the way and should arrive by Dec. 21. Judging by that, if the other orders go out in the next couple days, it seems it would be possible to get stuff before Christmas. Emphasis on the "if," of course. It took a good week last time for Matty to get stuff out.

    Not all of them--mine hasn't even shipped via the track-by-reference check. Of course, I'm about as far as you can get from CA (Boston), so maybe they do us last...which doesn't make much sense unless you assume the world is out to annoy me. Which I do.

    I sure hope so. Since I missed out on Skeletor, I really want my BK King and Green Goddess here before Christmas.

    And other DC figures and Zeddmore!

    Listen to you guys talking in days! It takes five weeks for my figures to arrive in the UK! I could speed up the process by selling my soul and paying for trackable international delivery, but it would be cheaper to fly to the US and collect the figures in person!

    too bad they dont have a more centralized distro center. the place i work for has ours in nashville. this ensures nearly 80% of the country can get their stuff in 2 days with normal UPS Ground shipping.

    the other 20 is about a 3 day and PR,Alaska and Hawaii are air no matter what
    I want NA Skeletor and Rio Blast and I want them now!

    I live in L.A. so I'll get mine tomorrow. Just in time for my wife to put them under the tree. They were my Christmas gift this year. I'm not allowed to open them until Christmas Day. Although she said I could open Skeletor on Christmas Eve if I was really good.
    I just hope the corner of the shipping box isn't smashed like last month.
    And it was caved in flat on one corner.
    Luckily it was the corner the DCUC pack was on and my MOTUCs escaped unscathed. I always open the DCUC pack,the boxes don't matter, and theYellow Lanterns were in good shape thanks to all the empty useless space in those packages.
    But with MOTUC I get 2 of each so I can keep a carded set.
    I'm sure that UPS was responisible for the damage. The UPS guy pulled his first "ding-dong-ditch" since I've been at my new place. I only live about an hour away from the distribution center so in that short distance my package saw some brutal action.
    I'm hoping they're a little more careful this month, but with all the seasonal package handlers UPS hires in L.A. this close to the holidays, the anxiety is there.
