Not me, I have stopped buying from overseas (at least trying to) because there is no quick, inexpensive way to ship without EMS. Currently I have been waiting 45 days for my last shipment because because I had to opt for ground (slow boat) shipping (the only other way they gave me) because to ship DSL would have been $145 for a package that normally would have been $30 or $40.

Its driving me crazy, as a person that has to have immediate gratification. At any rate, hopefully just the clear blue Thomas will become available because I don't want any of the other items.

Yeah the Hobby Search reservation period didn't even last 3-4 hours. And the Plaza Japan one could well have been the same, maybe a bit longer.

And Super I'm like you. My tracking has said that my package has been on a ship since the 31st of August, and no update since. I hope it gets here soon without much trouble either.

Thats what I don't get with them charging me $145 for something that weights the same or less than your 2 sets Muddy.

BTW: way to go, that is extremely inexpensive, pre-virus, price for shipping.

Yeah, I was very surprised to see the shipping cost of DHL of the 2 Pre-ordered items to only be $35 AUD. Why can't it be that cheap when we buy off of Yahoo  Dodgy

when people are willing to pay the steep shipping costs, why not charge customers more while they can?  It is similar to the some of the US ebay sellers using the Global shipping program.  The program quite often charges an import duty despite the value of the item(s) are relatively cheap.

Yeah when you buy off of Yahoo or Mercari, anything that weighs over a kilo or two is just way too expensive when you choose DHL, and I can't justify paying over $100 for something so minuscule in weight. Because of this it unfortunately leads us to choosing the although cheap, but DREADFULLY long sea mail option.

parcels are not shipped purely on weight . The couriers use volumetric weight . ie The cost of a shipment can be affected by the amount of space that it occupies on an aircraft, rather than the actual weight.
 How to Calculate [b]Volumetric Weight[/b]
  1. Multiply the parcel's three dimensions (length x height x width)
  2. If you are using centimetres then divide the result by 5000 (or 4000 for EU economy services). ...
  3. The resulting figure represents the volumetric weight of your parcel.
