Holy cripes! There's so much stuff going into this now that people are having to stand on chairs to take photos! :wink:

Really going to have to spend some time plotting together my donation- hoping to put in a small infantry of classic figs atm, but i'll see what I can find!

If I'm not mistaken you would have gotten it via PM earlier on, near the start of the box being send. If you don't have it, PM me, I got the list.

Wow, that is a lot!

I guess next time, if we do another international Jambalaya, the last European to get the box should take a bunch of extra stuff to both lighten the box, and to help compensate for the high cost of shipping before sending back to the USA. :?

Frisky is in for a big payday!

Ouch. This box must be huge... but I guess those at the exit point of a country do get the short straw in terms of postage costs. Something to factor in for the future.

I'm more than happy to help richardam take stuff out to lighten the load, you know, for the good of the community...

From what I can tell (from peoples 'ins' and 'outs') there's a heck load still in there, including two sealed sets... :o

I think andhe and myself can look at the box first and see what the plan is regarding the size and shipping.

Ill try and get a price on my first day and go from there. If it is worryingly big could we separate/transform it into two boxes perhaps? Frisky could get one half and thus his share but maybe we could keep sending the other half around to new people, keep it going like? Have a European one and a US one?

£25 from Finland to the UK is pricey but it can only be bigger than that if shipping from the UK to the US. I'll see how heavy it is first, or maybe andhe could so we can plan ahead accordingly?

Yes, by all means start emptying out the box. I would prob, just end up trading away/ selling most of the enormous contents. All I am looking for is some cool figs, plants, and basic parts. I do not need such a big return investment. I apologize Finland Brick, I will definitely try to find a solution to this problem for next year. :)

Truth told frisky I'm like you, I don't want that much. I've got some good ideas on how to empty it though to lower the shipping. I'll message you my ideas when I see what's left and well go from there :)
