    Australia & New Zealand Arrivals Thread

    I'm in New Zealand and I STILL haven't received any of my BF/CM purchases. Anyone else in the region who bought from this sale had their stuff arrive yet? This is getting ridiculous!

    I'm in Australia and I haven't received my Black Friday order.

    BUT I think other Australians have started to receive their orders, so hopefully it won't be too much longer before everyone's order arrives.

    I'm in regional Victoria and received one of my two packages yesterday (illogically the later of the two packages I ordered).

    Now what in Subternia am I going to do with all these extra Guards I don't have the room to display?

    Any Wind Raider / Demo Man / BGEL arrivals in Australia/New Zealand yet?

    I just received my Star Sisters yesterday, but have yet to see my Wind Raider, Demo Man and BGEL. This is EXTREMELY concerning to me that the SS would show up before the other order! That being said, my WR/DM/BGEL order was only shipped 4 days before the SS were shipped, and with a bigger box it might take longer, and may be held up in customs.

    Anyway, has anyone in New Zealand or Australia received their Wind Raider yet? I am DYING to get mine, it seems like forever-ago that I ordered it.

    Well I know it doesn't answer your question about Oz deliveries, but here in the UK I'm in the same position as you. I had a surprisingly quick Star Sisters delivery but am still waiting for my Wind Raiders.

    I didn't get stung for charges with the Star Sisters. I think the Post Office must have been sympathetic for once - maybe they knew how truly awful the figures are and couldn't bring themselves to impose the tax!

    I got my Wind Raider last year and I got my Demo-Man and BG Evil Lyn on the weekend. I am still waiting on the Star Sisters and this months figures.

    There are a few Aussies in the same boat as you but the deliveries are starting to trickle in

    Still waiting for October sub items in Australia. Are they lost?

    I still have not got my October Sub items for MOTUC and Voltron.
    Anyone else still waiting?

    My Oct figures STILL haven't arrived.

    What I don't understand is, I've had other stuff arrive already (that I bought after October). So what's going on? This is about the 3rd or 4th time this exact thing has happened this year!!

    I wouldn't waste any time. They do claim no responsibility for non-trackable packages, but get angry and you never know. May take a few emails back and forth. Just get outraged,

    FWIW, and I know this wasn't a regular shipment thing, but my Cyber Monday purchases last year (ie. late November) didn't arrive until February. And my FIRST order arrived about two weeks AFTER my second order. That's the absolute longest I've had to wait (approx 8-10 weeks). Usually it's 4 weeks... if I'm very lucky it's 3 (uber rare), sometimes 5 (pretty common), sometimes 6 or so (rarer, but not as uber rare as 3 weeks).

    Next year, though, is fast shipping in a group order. I don't mind paying the little bit extra to ensure stuff can be tracked (plus it's fun watching stuff go through Korea and Singapore). Not sure how different DHL will be compared to UPS, though.

    But yeah, anyways, I rant. Email them and complain. No doubt your package is trekking its way through various European centres. Ah, the life of a Mattel package... I'd love a trip through Europe at the prices they offer. :P
