How much was the shipping for those sets to you?  I am wondering if it would be cheaper to have them shipped to someone in the US then forwarded using a Flat Rate box?


$11 for me to have it shipped here. No media rate was offered. Total $51

How tall is the stack of them?  Just wondering how many sets would fit into a USPS Flat Rate box?

The shipping out of country is ridiculous.  4 sets to Canada by USPS is quoted at $160.

That IS ridiculous.  Got mine today as well. The stack stacks up to about an eighth of an inch shy of two inches, or a little over 4 1/2 cm.

Sounds like 3 sets might just squeak into a Flat Rate Box.

If you need an US intermediary, I'd be glad to help out.

The stock in the warehouse is the stock on the site, Edit: talked with shipping and was able to add media mail to all rpg lots now.

Admittedly, this was a pretty good deal, but here's the kick in the pants....
You can save an additional $6.17 by ordering direct from the T&T website.  The modules are 39.99 and shipping is less.  Yeah, I'm one of the ones kicking myself for not thinking to check there before doing the ebay offer.  :(

I guess this is a new policy then.  I know for the Blackmoor stuff that one day there was 50+ copies in stock, then it dropped down to 10 and when it ran out was replenished from the warehouse.  Each time a new batch was brought out, the price went up $2.

Yeah it's always cheaper doing orders directly from the website rather than through our ebay store.

I got my order today, just 3 days to UK!
I know its been said before, but T&T could have had a bit more of my custom if it wasn\'t for the extra $20 s&h they wanted for each additional item I tried to add.
Anyway, very pleased overall.

Just saw a seller on ebay asking $10 each for the individual modules (including the $2 retail module).

EDIT:

Looks like the color scheme is different for DCC#64 and #65

When did #63 come out? Seems like there should be more modules out since #63 is already being liquidated.

I'm trying to buy this lot.  Media mail is not one of the options.  What am I missing?

Should be fixed now.  Not sure why it didn't take the first time I added it.

How much was shipping, just out of interest, in the end?
