Have you ever imagined a world with no hypothetical situations?

Too much stuff on the market and then you have the XM HB that's making the rounds.

This is still on my list ...ever since IA never came through on my original order that included shipping to the states.

Cross country skiing is great if you live in a small country.

Yes I agree. I use to sell so, so Sideshow PF ten years ago and get what I paid. Also now shipping is just so much. Use to ship coast to coast for $20.00 regular 1/4, now it's $100.00. It's $40.00 to just ship few hundred miles.

I am glad that SC got me my 3rd one but then I found out how much people offer and how much to ship.

Didn't complete my though on shipping on other page, I have to pay half that amount for a 30 lbs statue that goes half that distance. The one box alone on this statue is double that

Yep, calculated shipping for potential buyer in California using FedEx ground and exact package details. Package A is 86 pounds and package B is 80 pounds. The exact quote to ship cross-country from Florida was $526 for everything. Got a very prompt "no thanks"

Shipping to the east coast would probably be cheaper if I can find a buyer there. But I'm running into the same thing, very rare and beautiful statue that no one wants over the shipping cost. More than likely will just have to eat it as a $500 lesson in not impulse buying huge statues.

One funny thing with FedEx. They had to classify this as "furniture" because of the size and value lol

The quote I did from west coast a year ago to Flod was $1,000. The rules they have are so weird.
Shipping has gone 5 X from when I started collecting.

Sounds like you were getting ripped off. I ship online so used their calculator service and you also get a discount online.

I went to a general store. They wouldn't let me buy anything specifically.

People in the US are spoilt when it comes to shipping costs.

When they actually have to pay for shipping most flip their lid.
