At least there was not excessive scratching of the groin.

So I ordered my MP36 re-issue from Hobbylink Japan as many here had plenty of success with them, I tracked my order and on their tracking report it says that it was in Australian Customs on the 9th of Feb and it has nothing after. It has now been nearly a month and I have yet to see it. Do I call Customs now? will they contact me or do they just confiscate it and I lose out?

Head on over to the gunformers thread. http://www.otca.com.au/boards/showthread.php?t=20265

There are instructions in there about what to do.

Anyway you should receive a letter from customs notifying you of the seizure and you then have a set amount of time to produce the B709A form and then they will give it to Australia Post to finally deliver it to you.

If it's been seized by customs, I think you are the first for MP-36.

Did you ship by EMS or SAL? Either way, I'd try contacting Aust Post first.

SAL is basically economy air mail:

According to HLJ, SAL "averages 10-30 business days".

Yeah, definitely contact AusPost, if the item has gone missing they'll require you to contact the sender who will need to start a missing item request on their side.

Also wouldn't hurt to contact hlj themselves and ems as auspost don't take the item till after it clears customs. It also states if customs haven't received any documentation for the release of the goods after 30 days it's deemed property of the state (or something like that) and listed to be destroyed.
