The neverending painful story of a European G.I. Joe collector

On January, 21st I pre-ordered the entire collection of G.I. Joe Kre-O from Toys ‘R Us (they ship internationally now). Everything seems to be going well, and I soon receive some of the 3 3/4″ inch toys I also ordered at the same time. The release date of the Kre-O’s comes and goed, but since the shipping is internationally, I don’t panic just yet.

After a while, I get worried and I contact Toys ‘R Us. They send me along to their partner I-Parcel. The Service Desk of I-Parcel can give me the tracking number for the local package service they use (GLS). I contact GLS and they claim they have delivered the package to an address further down in my street, a driver’s error. I did not receive any news about that and they claim they can’t get the package back.

I continue to email between Toys ‘R Us, I-Parcel and GLS, but no solution so far.

I keep hoping they’ll be able to recover the package or send me a replacement, but my hopes are diminishing every passing hour.

If anybody can give me some insight or support on this matter, please contact me.

Hasbro Update

—————————————————–

Update on my previous post (Happy New Year):

Hasbro’s answer confirmed my fears. G.I. Joe toys will not be sold in Belgium (possibly even Europe). Such a shame. I’ve asked if it was possible to place an order directly with them for one of each ๐Ÿ™‚ but that won’t be possible as well ๐Ÿ™

First box of Kre-O has arrived

The first box of G.i.Joe Kre-O has arrived yesterday. I’d like to thank Toys ‘r US for finally shipping internationally – yes, there is a whole world out there outside of the US ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve already put the Dragonfly together (pics will follow as soon I’ve cleared some space in my display cabinet).

Finally

I’ve decided to give myself a late New Year’s present and so I ordered some new joes from smalljoes. As always, it arrived fast and in a good package. No doubt, you’re wondering what I ordered. Check out the pic.

Next to these new toys I also ordered some stands so I can finally get my collection organised and displayed. Over the next months I’ll be posting more updates on this.
