Would a US member be willing to place a bid on a US only auction for me? I'll cover all shipping costs and throw in a decent handling fee to cover your time (all via Paypal). Auction ends 02:00 GMT 18 July. Anyone...?
Please PM for details.

calling my US buddies....

can anyone do me a favour?

i just won a beastmaker mountain and the seller wants to send me the item via USPS Priority Mail International to the grand sum of $28.00.

seems a little tonya-esque for my liking, so could someone be kind enough so i can arrange to have it shipped to them? i will then either have it sent to here or get one of the guys to just bring it to GenCon for me next year. either way is cool.

mant thanks guys...a reply asap would be most appreciated as the seller is 0-rated and i dont want any problems.

Just a little.  Fiddling with the USPS rate calculator, I need to bump a UK-bound parcel up to 3 pounds before I get $28.

I've never seen a copy of Beastmaker Mountain, but I somehow doubt it's that heavy. :roll:

Al,

Let me know if I can help.  As long as there are no giant shrews to take care of, this shouldn't be a problem.  :wink:

Al;

Unfortunately that sounds about right using the new USPS mailing guidelines for a priority box.  If Ryan can't help you let me know...!

Alan, have him ship it to me.  I won something from his auctions so its probably easies just to have him package it up with mine and I will forward it on.  I'd be willing to bet that I can get it to you for around half of that. :)

that sounds cool man - and thankyou so much to all the other guys too.

Muchas Gracias.

Bri - i was gonna get him to ship it to martin (prufrock - the Indiana Jones of the Acaeum) but if youre having stuff shipped to you then thats cool - because all the auctions that were set on private i didnt know who was bidding on what, which sucked. could you have a word with him about that?

i will msg him about it and just pay whatever the invoice is that he does - kindly he has sent an amended invoice, but to martin - he quoted shipping & handling as $8.30 - is that ok?

thanks once again guys - shows how cool the acaeum is!

Anytime you need a US address to ship to, just let me know. I'll PM my address to you any time you like.
Once you have it, just give me a tip on when and what to expect.

I would offer to help, but it seems rather pointless at this point. :) Still...

Sometimes, its fun to just see what these things look like, even if its just to say "ok, here you go."
