Looking forward to hearing your thoughts! I'm proud of this one. Finding it a little tough to let these Blue Labels go today, but it's waaaaay past time to get them in all of your hands.


Thanks for updating everyone, Nate-- and good use of the leftover SDCC cards!

Hopefully, it will come through UK Customs unscathed. I did email Nate about the VAT situation and he said he has confirmed with the warehouse that these will be clearly labeled as books/comics so should be OK as both are Zero Rated for VAT Smile Thumb Up

I've seen some collectors have received their Blue books on another forum. Can't wait to see what Card Talkers get!

If it's in the UK, then you should be able to track it through the Royal Mail or ParcelForce websites.

Not good. In case you haven't already checked, there's a Customer Support number on the Royal Mail website that you can call tomorrow, i.e. Saturday, between 8.00am and 1.00pm:

treksearcher, I've had similar experiences with US mail. Something was marked as delivered on the website, but nothing at my house. It typically showed up the next day. I suppose the mailman scanned it on the truck that day, but just never delivered it for whatever reason.

Hopefully it works out ok for you!

P.S. Probably worth checking the Parcelforce site as well as that might just confirm Ted's idea.

If parcelforce get a package from the USA it says attempted delivery at the time they got it which is very weird and very misleading.

Panic over.

The package was delivered to a neighbour who'd been unable to catch me in. The delivery company should have left a card stating where it was and this would have been sorted quickly.

I will put a scan of the sketches up shortly, by Artist Chris Mason.

Glad the package turned up. That's an awesome looking puzzle!

Great to hear it arrived safe and sound after all...and even better there was no VAT or handling charge so Nate got the description right for UK Customs Clap Thumb Up

That's definitely a relief on both counts!

Found them, one of the four piece sketches looks a lot like mine, but then it is the same artist.
