well - when i sent him to jojo he was wrapped in bubble pack in a cardboard box in an envelope. for some reason the envelope was cheaper by twenty buck than the box. Even though the envelope added weight i still saved that much money. go figure..
go minifigure. :D

Maybe the list to where Henry goes should be based on where you live. So the international shipping could be lessend.

Has Henry ever been to Scandinavia? If not, I'd be glad to show him around :D

I don't think you should "cheat." If you want show pictures of your own sigfig, but not a counterfit Henry. Lets let Henry actually travel the world!

Thank you DM - that was kinda the whole point.
I suppose in an emergency like making it to PDX for instance it might be ok, but lets face it. The whole idea was to have this one little guy just go around the world - criss crossing back and forth, and really putting a lot of miles in.
Thanks to everyone who is willing to play..
*sniff, sniff* you've all made me such a happy freak.... :D

This idea is so cool. I'm more excited about getting Henry than the new KK!!!! I'm going to Washington DC in a few months, that would be some cool pics! I hope I get him around then...

Maybe........

LEGO would give us some media coveraged. You know like a monthly update on where Stanely is and such. It sounds cool. I'll mention it to the guys at the lego store when I got him. This little project could be something big. Maybe it would stir up interest in the Castle World again! Maybe TLC would want to produce sets like they did in the days of old!

Your Rock LEGOFREAK!

Is there a particular reason why I can't be included on the list, since I offered a few posts back to show him Scandinavia?

Hi Duchessa,

Each person is supposed to copy and paste the list and add their name. So I modified the list above and added you.

I am sure Henry would love to visit Scandinavia :D

Not sure if I missed this in an earlier post:

Is there a time limit to how long we host the little guy?

There is talk of how much it costs to mail this guy around - I've sold minifigs on ebay before, and within the US, it is less than $1.

International shipping is about as cheap, certainly less than $5.

PS. Thanks DM - very kind of you.

Yes, but what about Henry having brothers for us Castlers who lack the funds to ship Henry? I've already made brother Harry:

I really don't think you guys should "cheat". It takes the meaning out of the project.
