    A Chicago Horde field trip to Power Con would be cool. But money is real tight for me these days.

    I'd love to hit Powercon, NYC comic con, and SDCC at least once in my life.

    I planned on going to Power Con this year, then something came up and had to change plans. I'm defintely going to NY for it next year.

    Marc - you need to experience SDCC & NYCC at least once in your life.

    Thanks Big B - to be completely honest # 52 isn't worth the vote, it was initially done as the guy was giving the 1 finger salute! then someone mentionwed the devil horns, so i changed it to what it is now. I actually removed it from submission but somehow it made it through anyways!


    So if you want go back and vote for entries you actually like.

    Hey, guys!
    Any 30th Anniversary Subscription holders looking to get rid of their Cy-Chop figure they got coming next week? Looking for one and willing to trade one of my extra MOTUC figures.
    Feel free to reply here or PM. Let me know what figure/s you might be needing/wanting.

    How much would it cost? Or would it be cheaper if you make a couple at a time?

    Must have Castle Grayskull.

    Well if u want to split the shippings costs. I live in elmhurst so we could meet in Lombard to give him to you. So he would be like 28 give or take. Cause if you order him by himself it would be over 30. So helps both of us out.

    Cripes - cheapest shipping option for Castle Grayskull is $37. An absolute joke. I can get furniture & appliances shipped for less...

    Have we looked into what's the best cost for shipping is. Meaning is it best to maybe team up and pay for one shipping for multi cgs under one order instead of separate.

    That's roughly the total that I get for shipping AND tax. The shipping, itself (at least when I put in an order to the same shipping address that I always use), is only around $20. It's $19.65 for the USPS option, and $20.70 for UPS ground.

    So the best deal is USPS ground for three gray skulls. Shipping is 44. So that's less than 15. Then tax.

    If you actually want to get that many for yourself, or really want to go out of your way to try to save money on the shipping by combining orders. If you are doing the latter, it hardly seems worth it IMO unless you live on the same block as the people you are splitting it with. You're only saving a little over 5 bucks, which is a small drop in the bucket of the overall cost of the thing, and you are probably going to burn a chunk of that in gas trying to meet up with people.

    I'm just getting one for myself, and already placed my order. Picked the UPS ground shipping since it was only a little over $1 more than the USPS shipping.

    I was just giving an option for people. Other boards are buying together. But like you said it's only a total of 15 savings. Just wierd how much shipping goes up from 1 vs 2. It's cheaper to buy 1 single order twice with ups than one order of two.

    Yeah, I'm seeing that now - they must have fixed it between when I ordered at 11:30 and now. Will wait a few days to see if Toyguru says the orders will be adjusted, or if I have to call CS. This was definitely happening for everyone when the pre-orders initially went live...

    Ah, I didn't realize that the shipping was initially higher. I didn't previously see that. Buy the time I realized it was up for sale and placed my order, the shipping was as I stated above. Hopefully they can fix it.

    I just placed my order. I used UPS ground. I just don't trust the post office with something this expensive. I'd rather play it safe and send a few more bucks.

    I agree.

    Though the UPS shipping was only a little over $1 more than the USPS shipping, so it was an even easier decision.

    I hope enough of these sell to get produced!

    Well we are at 24 percent after a few days. So we are on our way. Someone on the Matty forums is buying 10 plus he stated so that is a nice order. If all goes well here comes name mountain and battle ram.
