So if they could make a detergent box for DCC#30 and not have the top bowed in then what was the problem with DCC#51. I have yet to see a copy of Castle Whiterock without the top at least somewhat concave.


I have two of the DCC 51 Box Sets (Both complete).
One is still in the SW, and the other is not.
The opened box set is in near perfect condition; Top and bottom.
I got it direct from the publisher a little while ago when they had that big half price sell off, and it was shipped with a large lot of other Modules and box sets that I bought at the time.
It was basically in the middle of a large shipping box and was perfect in condition.
I really was reluctant to open it, but ended up doing so one weekend when I was bored and had nothing else to do.....
I wanted some new stuff to read... so it called to me........

8O DE-SHRINKAGE time..........  8O  :oops:

Later on I bought another of that box set (DCC 51) in the SW and it sits on the shelf...
The box bottom is a bit concaved. but the top is nearly perfect.
It was listed as having the concaved bottom but for the price I paid it was well worth it.

I also have TWO empty DCC 30 Boxes.
One has a bunch of packing tape wrapped all around it with a shipping label taped to the top covering the sketch in the middle.
I posted about that one in another thread on this forum a while ago.

The other DCC 30 Box I have just arrived this past week, and it is nearly perfect (Ecxept that it was empty).

I'm going to have to stick to 1st class shipping to Canada (vs flat rate envelope).  That got there in 2/3 the time at 1/3 the cost.

I haven't really found that one service is any faster than another between the Canada and the US.  The Surface vs Airmail options seem to be about the same to the US.  I think 1st class mail probably goes airmail but it is often faster than priority.

For the two priority boxed I received from TLG during their sale, one took 9 days and the other 5 (I think) - its very hit and miss.

Even expedited packages can take a while. The reason, as I am told, is that anything coming out of Canada (or into the States from somewhere else) gets routed through New York City... so its a huge bottleneck of crap. Maybe its just East Coast-bound things, as it seems odd that something going from British Columbia to Los Angeles would need to travel all the way to NYC first....


Those who can, don't. Those who should not, do.

I defer to Mars' experience, and agree it can be all over the place... my vote for priority is in that those envelopes never seem to get bent in half to fit the mailbox... not always true with first class   :?

Thank you Center_Stage for an amazing item which arrived safely.  Having your Dragolisk miniature included made the transaction even better! :)


Even a stopped clock tells the right time twice a day, and for once I'm inclined to believe...we are indeed drifting into the arena of the unwell.

Just a quick note to mention that a couple modules from Guy Fullerton arrived safely today.  I ordered his module F1 The Fane of Poisoned Prophecies along with Thorkie's (from DF) GS1 Sanctum of the Stone Giant Lord during that free shipping combo blitz he offered.  Both look like an interesting read so I will need to find some time :)

The item was mailed out on May 18th from San Jose, CA so it took 15 days to get here.  I've decided to keep track of shipping times for a while to see what realistic estimates are.
