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.

I think the stock number indicates how many they have in the store at the moment.  They bring large quantities of stuff to the warehouse, reduced the stock in the store.  Then when it sells out, they replenish and sometimes raise the price.

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?


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?

It was something just over $6.  Something like.....$6.53? (Or something pretty close to that.)

That would have saved me about $5 (but I think he was asking about UK shipping).

Not sure exactly, but whole package cost £42 and that included FACEBOOK discount and buying directly off site.
