Today, I received my third package in 2 weeks that had to go through Customs.
The first package was my Turbo Man figure. Customs cut it open, removed it from the 4 Layers of bubble wrap (only replacing 1 ), and (I'm assuming here) broke the figures arms off. If they didn't do it they definitely allowed it to happen by not replacing all of the bubble wrap. Customs also wrote on the package.
The second package was an I, Robot badge that Marc (LeMarchand) was nice enough to ship out to me WAY after he did his run. Marc placed it between two pieces of cardboard, and inside a letter size envelope. Customs cut this thing open so hard that the razor managed to got through the cardboard and cut a nice deep gouge in my badge. It gets worse though. They then folded the envelope in half (not replacing the cardboard) and taped the Badge and the Decal to the OUTSIDE of the package!! Then they wrapped tape (like a 6 month old baby) around the package to "hold" it all together.
The third package was my long awaited 1:1 Sonny NS-5 Bust. The only thing I could say for the first half hour after opening it was, "Why the F@CK do customs agents need a drill to open a F@CKING cardboard box?" That's right! They drilled through the Top AND Side of the box. Why? I don't Know, but I do know that they drilled a nice hole right in the top of his head. Mother@#$%ers. It's fine other than that.
So I have officially had it with customs and now it's complaint time. I'll post pictures in a little while.
