Great idea. If you do group buys on Star Wars pieces let me know, I might be interested. I just got the exclusive Death Trooper from Brazil and it worked out fine, ended up paying about the same had I ordered from Secret Compass.

Wow, $15 from Australia?? They charge a flat $50 from Brazil when you buy direct on eBay.

Yes I ordered Daredevil and pre-ordered Punisher. Shipping was $15 but so far only Daredevil shipped. I'd definitely order again from them. I went with secret compass for my Thor pre-order because they were cheaper all-in on that one as compared to popcultcha.

I paid $140 shipped for Daredevil from an Ebay seller if that helps.

That's because they put up the statue for cost and try and make their profits in the shipping price. Most of those deals have the statue up for like $100-$110 and then $40-$50 for shipping. which ends up being the same if not more then what secret compass sells it for..

From my experience, the cheapest to ship from Brazil is $40. However for that amount you can get about 4 Daredevil sized pieces shipped together.

Not sure I agree as I have received the boxes from Brazil and the calculation conversion does equate very close to $40.

Between $40 and $50 if the pieces weight less than 2KG/4LB.

Regular pieces weight around 1.1 LB

I've ordered a few 1/10 pieces directly from Brazil before I found out Secret Compass was carrying them and I paid roughly around $25-$28 for shipping. This was over a year ago so maybe it's gone up...

So I just went back and double checked my order invoice and paypal account. I paid for Daredevil plus half of Punisher (pre-order) and shipping. It was $274 AUD. After conversion to USD it was $209.81 for the order.

The screen shot from my order confirmation is below as well as the screen shot from my paypal account showing the USD to AUD conversion.

Not sure why it is now $135 on their website.
