    Geldor Non-Arrival Thread – South Africa

    Hi Guys

    Is there any other South African MOTU Collectors that is still waiting for their Geldor to arrive? Myself and 2 other friends are still waiting for our Geldor figures to come via UPS. All the guys who have ordered via DHL have their one’s already. It’s going for 6 weeks already!!!!!!!!

    Hi Pottie, I'm from Pretoria SA and mine also haven't arrived yet! What I can say from previous experience is that this have happened before where Nov figs only arrive late Dec or even early Jan. I think our postal service or rather clearing service at OR Tambo is flooded this time of year with parcels. It is very frustrating though!!

    Austria here ... waiting too.

    Until now no order ever got lost (via international post) ... I waited for my first order (He-Man and Beast-Man) about 3 month ...

    Cheers,
    Klemens

    As the others have said, it takes ages to get anything at this time of year, unless it's by courier.

    Last year my order was supposed to be here 3 weeks before Christmas and ended up being delivered a week after Christmas. Vasbyt!
    I have to add that DHL was VERY quick with my CG.

    Still waiting for my November DOS.
    Take each day as it comes, but never take it for granted.

    Update on my Geldor

    I am still waiting for Geldor to arrive. I have send Matty 2 mails already and they only send back me the standard 4 to 6 weeks mail.

    This can't be blamed on the silly season. Something else is going on here.

    Just want to say well done to DHL for their good service. I had my Castle Grayskill within a week from shipping.

    Good old SAPO. They take 2 weeks to deliver from Amazon UK (and that is when they are trying...). Packages take about a week from arrival at the post office and the first notice printed to land in my post box. They should change the slogan to: "We deliver however long it takes."

    Mine still have not arrived, But I did get my Dec figures yesterday - weird, hope my Nov ones are still coming... does any of you SA guys know how SARS calculate the customs, I have been buying from matty since 2009 and it's always a surprise as to what the customs will be, I got nailed R209 (About $20) for two figures now! That to me is crazy!!

    I got my Geldor and Sea Hawk figures in South Africa on Tuesday, 8 January. I'm still waiting for my December figures. Here is to hoping that they arrive soon. I've received past figures anything from 3 weeks to 9 weeks. Who knows what logic is at play. All I know is that I'm glad they always arrive at the end.
