    Yeah most people who haven't subscribed are up to Issue 8 where as the people who have subscribed are up to issue 4. I wonder what the delay is?

    I'm still waiting on the second mailout.. issues 4 and 5 for me... They said allow 28 days for postage etc.. I can understand a delay of that length for the initial mailout, to allow for setting up stuff in the database etc, but 4 weeks for each additional mailout???

    Yeah 4 weeks is a bit long. I think being a subscriber we should have the issues before they reach the stores, not the other way around.

    Great news. Just recieved an email from Bissett mags, the distributor. They told me my second pack will be posted this week, I should recieve it by no later than next friday.

    I've asked them if they will send out the rest of the issues we are behind so we can catch up, but at least the packs are on the way again.

    Did they come up with any reason as to why those who took the effort to subscribe should be so far behind anyone who buys them from the newsagents?

    I called Bissett mags yesterday, and asked them wtf is going on. Apparently there was a problem with the mugs - they were packaged really poorly from the UK, and were all chipped/broken in transit. The (rather rude) lady told me we should have our second shipment late this week.

    I went on to ask her about how far behind we are from the newsagents (My subscription is up to 4, my mate is up to 9 or 10 from the newsagent). She kept going on about how they have nothing to do with the newsstand blah blah blah...

    I asked her what was the latest issue they had in the warehouse - 9. So I asked her if she could send my third shipment as soon as they got issue 10. Her reply was a flat out NO!

    If it wasn't for the freebies, I'd be cancelling!

    Once I get all the freebies I will be cancelling!! This is really poor service as far as I'm concerned.

    I recieved an email from them today, issues 4 & 5 are on the way and should be here in the next two days, while 6 to 9 will be sent in the next few weeks, I'm guessing 2 weeks from now. It makes sense, since the next pack will be in 4 weeks containing 10 to 14 (hopefully).

    I have to agree that it is very poor service. I have e-mailed them numerous times about it and no replies. There might be little chance of recieving my Star Wars T-Shirt by May 16th as well which is stupid because I wanted to wear it to the Episode 2 Premiere. Oh well let's see what happens.
