Just got an email from the club that dion is being shipped.
Cool. But this close to Botcon, they should have allowed us to pick it up and save the shipping.
Hmmm. No e-mail in my box yet. That doesn't happen very often.
Still, the timing's about what we've been told... Cool!
Same, I'm usually in the first batch of e-mails, but I've still not got it
That's cool can't wait to see him
Isn't shipping for the membership figure already included in the club membership fee?
Absolutely no way to do that. That would be a logistics nightmare.
He means the cost that FP has to pay to ship them to us.
Just trying to think of how you'd do that... making sure that people who were supposed to get one got one, then not shipping the figure to them, while ensuring that no one who couldn't pick it up at BotCon had failed to get theirs mailed to them... it boggles the mind.
Surely, any money "lost" to shipping is worth not having to deal with the hassle.
Could be that's what he meant, he can say so if so, but yes, the logistics make it easier for FP to pay for shipping. But if he did mean it the other way, I wanted to address that too. Seems most fans are more concerned about their money and less about FP's money.
Sounds cool! I live close to them down here in Texas and hopefully I get him soon! I was able to get the final combiner last year before a lot of people.
I forget, when they ship these figures they just come regular mail right, so it's not something that would need to be signed for. I'll probably be at Botcon when it decides to show up so no one will be around to sign but since I think its just regular mail they'll leave it and I have somebody to pick up the mail. Will be a nice extra after getting home from the convention with all my other toys in tow.
I wonder how long it will take for Dion to come to the UK
No email either. I hope the figure comes because none of my magazines never came.
If that's the case, you should probably call or e-mail them.
What's their email and phone number?
Ugh, I am trying not to have any packages come this close to Botcon. I do not want them sitting outside for a week.....
I guess I underestimated the hassle vs. the cost. I was simply thinking it would save the club a lot of money on shipping. No biggie. I can't wait to get mine.
Here's the one I use firstname.lastname@example.org but if your a member why not contact pete on the forum via pm or something?
can't you leave a note on your door saying to leave it with a neighbour?
For what it is worth, I am certain that it was considered and rejected for reasons probably very much like what GB Blackrock said.
I'll look forward to getting mine. Then I just need to find a pride of place position to display him in.
Pretty risky. You don't want to advertise you're not going to be there to any thieves who might be hanging around.
So, is this supposed to be one of those general e-mails saying that Dions are being shipped to everyone, or was it an e-mail saying -your- Dion has been shipped? Cos if it's the former, I still haven't got the e-mail. If it's the latter, then that might explain why.
