Great figures, Luey! I have a special place in my heart and memory bank for these particular figures. :)

I could very well place some last minute bids on these if the scenario(s) are
in order (even though I shouldn't moneywise!)----nice stuff!

I would so bid on that lot of 7 if I had the extra to let go of :(

Very nice bunch of figures! I hope you do well :)

I like 'em!! However, that $50+ shipping charge will keep me from bidding. Good luck with the auction! :)

Yeah, that's too bad, I haven't had one single winner from any International transaction complain about the price, I guess they like the Express shipping (3-5 days to most countries).... Plus I like the fact that they can't say they didn't get the package too if I shipped it economy... 1 PayPal chargeback cured me of that...

But hey, thanks for bringing that up! ;)

heh I just find it funny that Canada is considered "international" by most American sellers, although most boxed figs I buy I can easily get shipped for around $20 (some even 1/2 of that, and I've never had a problem receiving the item.) But I'm not complaining! I actually like the fact that the shipping cost is laid out up front, so folks will know what to expect.

"Funny"? Last time I checked Canada was not part of the United States.

The methods of shipment you are describing do not include tracking info. Have you ever heard of a chargeback? Do you realize that if a buyer lodges a complaint with Paypal and the seller does not have tracking info then the seller has absolutely no leg to stand on?

Oh, but it does sound like you are complaining without taking into account why a seller may require a method of shipment that includes tracking info.....

Hard to argue with those facts right there,I kind of had the same problem the other day,some guy was charging me $20 shipping for 2 12" vintage Joes from Canada,but when I got the package the seller was right.Shipping prices have gone up recently so keep that in mind

Oh believe me, I count myself lucky each and every day that we're not! And rather continue this conversation, I'll end my comments here, as it seems there is an "us against them" mentality brewing. All I did was make a simple comment as to what I perceived as higher-than-average shipping, and the flames start coming.

Calm down. Take a deep breath. There, don't you feel better?

Those comments weren't necessary dude,no one here is dissing Canada.Some might just take a little offense cause Luey is a respectable member and seller,so if he says it costs that much,chances are he's right.

So calm down :grin:

Higher than average? Have you ever sent a tracked Express package from the US to Canada? Ever think what those figures may weigh, they are not hollow, pretty heavy actually... Didn't think so... I will send regular airmail to Canada for a fraction of the cost if I know you (but I don't), just ask Palitoy... Some I can trust to actually say they received the package... Some buyers who I don't know or trust can claim non receipt and Paypal (who requires internet tracked shipping) will do a chargeback in 2 seconds flat if not sent Express tracked airmail... I don't deal in $10 items, chargebacks are too costly... Like I said, haven't had any complaints so far from winners on my auctions.... And I don't want to even go into those durn custom forms....

I wasn't "flaming" at all. This is a discussion forum. I was responding to your statements. You pointed out the high shipping costs. Luey explained why. You seemed to not understand and went on to rudely imply that shipping to Canada is not "international" shipping (!!!) and that items can be sent much cheaper. Let me repeat. SELLERS WHO SELL EXPENSIVE ITEMS NEED TRAKCING INFO AS PROOF OF SHIPMENT. INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING METHODS THAT INCLUDE TRACKING ARE MORE EXPENSIVE THAN OTHER METHODS OF SHIPMENT.

There was a period of time a few years back when I just stopped selling to international bidders altogether. The vast majority of international buyers were reasonable to work with, but I got kinda tired of receiving snarky e-mails from the occasional bad apple who seemed to think I should be able to send a box to Pango Pango for the same price as I could send a box across the state of Kentucky. I nearly always charge close to actual postage on my items (ie I'll round up to the next whole dollar, so instead of charging say $4.65 I just round it up to $5.00 just to keep the math simple for me), and it never fails to annoy me when people act like I'm trying to get rich on postage.

Same thing here George, but I usually have about 1/3 of the winners International so it's hard to stop... and again, no complaints when they win... Just like you said, I do receive those emails before hand telling me they can't bid because the shipping is too high, oh well! Hate that for them, but it is what it is...

A guy in Australia won the 7 figure lot, I had quoted $55 shipping in the auction and it cost $62... So higher than average? I think not! Good try though Brad!

Starsky, I will look in my parts box, I know I have Boba Fett Cape, darth Cape, Jawa parts, maybe a lightsaber or two...
