Mine shipped together.
I had the same problem, but I went into my subscription and changed it.
Masters of the Universe Classics, Ghosterbusters, and Voltron collector...any one have a storage unit(s) I can use? LOL
Mine shipped together.
There is definitely a problem with combining shipments through the site. If you're sure everything is the same, that probably isn't the issue.
I too had the exact same everything for my eternia and filmation subs. I checked and double checked and still couldn't get anything combined.
I finally called customer service and just requested that they do it for me. Hopefully that will work starting next month.
The subscription management page doesn't let you change shipping methods. I'm guessing that club eternia shipping parcel post and filmation shipping UPS is what was causing the separation.
Ok, so I'm not getting half the emails I should be getting from Matty. I call CS because of the main page news. I was told I CAN NOT change my email, or I loose CG & all 4 subs. WTF? I will not order my subs until this is figured out. Total BS. Add in a server error & what looks to be a botched shipment & I'm pretty frustrated with DR right now. They are too inept to fix this in 4 days....with a weekend.
Has anyone fixed this issue before? Argh.
NO DYLAMUG? WE DIAL A MOB!
DYLAMANIA IS RUNNIN' WILD! THE MOB IS GROWING!
I'm sure there have been a lot of posts like this, and basically it's just people trying to either get some attention or boycott Matty. I'm doing neither, just venting a little.
So here's what happened. I pre-ordered Castle Grayskull last year, but due to finances, I had to cancel my pre-order. I did it with a lot of regret, because I never had CG when I was a kid, and I was really looking forward to MOTUC's version. I also had a subscription for Club Filmation, and I only got it because I wanted to get Sea Hawk for my wife, who's a big She-Ra fan and I wanted her Adora to have her partner.
So last month I receive an email from Matty saying that my card was going to be charged soon for Castle Grayskull. I had already cancelled my pre-order, and could not afford it, so I contacted them and asked them to please verify that my order was cancelled and that I would not have the Castle shipped to me and/or my card charged. I get an email back two days later confirming that yes, my order was indeed cancelled and I would not be charged for the Castle.
Then came this month's Matty sale, and on the 16th I still had not received the "your subscription has renewed" email, so I contacted them again and asked them about it, and they said that they would retry to charge my credit card 5 days after the monthly sale, meaning on the 20th. On November 22nd I email them back because my credit card had not been charged. They write back saying that my Club Filmation subscription had been cancelled because they tried charging my credit card three times and the three times the card had been rejected. I contact my bank to see what was up and they reply that there had been no attempt from Mattycollector to charge my card this month. So then it occured to me that they had instead tried to charge my debit card, which is also on Matty's database but I never use it there. So I check with the other bank and lo and behold, yes, Matty tried charging my debit card, and since there's no money in there unless I'm going to use the card, the charges didn't go through.
So, somehow Matty deleted my credit card, the one I've been using for my Club Filmation sub from their database, and reverted to my debit card, just because I asked them to verify that my card would not be charged for Castle Grayskull. I mean, really?
I've never had any issues with Matty before, and this is the first time and really, I don't want to deal with this comapny anymore. So if I don't get Sea Hawk and Strong-Arm, so be it. I still need Modulok and Two-Bad to finish my collection (and maybe Dragstor and Rio Blast) so I'll get that from the secondary market. But really, this is a low blow. It sucks that when this company fixes one thing, something else breaks.
Language barrier. I can't tell you how many times the simplest of things confused the Indian person on the other end of the line. Anyone who says I'm being racist, please, let's be reasonable, when running a business, shouldn't you use people in CS that speak the customers language first, and not as a secondary language? Just my opinion. Again, i've tried to convey simple ideas that were repeatedly misunderstood, while dealing with the MC CS.
Your only hurting yourself and NOT matty by not giving it a go.

The 12 figures I still need: 12/Spinnerella, 11/Peekablue, 10/Squeeeze, 9/Lizard Man, 8/Gwildor, 7/Filmation Clawful, 6/Imp, 5/Mermista, 4/Dylamug, 3/Tung Lashor, 2/Filmation Hordak, 1/Queen Angella.
yeah, I feel they are incompetent.
It sounds like what happened is that they just switched your default card - which is what they had been doing for Grayskull orders all this year which didn't actually end up doing a tinkers darn which is why all the issues happened. What is a mystery is how cancelling the order totally got them to change your default method.
Sorry it feels bad enough to just bail, especially since you have only had this one issue, but it's understandable - and, in a way, I can actually respect it as you are putting your money where your mouth is. It's a shame you are missing the figure you wanted for your wife - if you change your mind, as blackiecats says, just log into the subscription page, make sure the card you want is the default card, and email Matty and tell them you want the sub reinstated with the default card you have set. You shouldn't have to call.
I'm surprised you only got the email after the 3rd time - I'd also make sure your email account has them "whitelisted" or just a contact, so they don't mark it as spam. They usually send you an email each time they attempt to charge your card and failed - so it looks like they got missed somewhere.
Good luck whatever you do!
The larger problem when people like you give up or stop buying, voting with your wallet as they say, it is never considered an issue with DR or the product. It is usually perceived as a lack of interest in the line, or fans are not willing to support the line, which is not the case. Man of us are willing to support a line we love, that is why BBTS or any other secondary seller is making money selling Matty stuff. Many people are willing to pay more just avoid dealing with the company itself. That should be the number one sign there is something wrong with the way you do business, but of course it will fall on the fans if anything does not do well.
Sorry to hear of your troubles. I feel that even when you don't have any problems DR/MattyCollector is still just a lousy experience. Horrible catalog, clunky ordering/checkout process, poor performance, insane shipping prices, etc. I hate it. I'm glad I was able to get most of my collection from eBay and fellow forum members.
So last friday I got an URGENT! mail from matty: my Filmation and Eternia subs was inactive?!?
They claimed there was a problem with the Nephtu and Mantenna/Darkus/Trooper order... but I allready have the figures in hand...
And according to my bank info I did pay for the figures and the ordernumbers on the paperwork checks out, but there is no immediately sign of these orders on my mattyaccount...
So I did some digging and found them under a different order number and they were RENEWED, billed and shipped.
Question: Why these problems now? I knew this month would be a slaughter on my card, so I ensured I had enough money ready. What did they do to the system?
