    I will be sending e-mails out to everyone about shipping cost,
    so please follow the instructions in the e-mail.

    These are not cheap to ship,
    so per the original agreement, I'll need everyone to send a little bit more money.

    I'm sending everything in the US with delivery confirmation (no insurance)
    You have to pay extra if you want that.

    And I'm sending everything outside of the US insured (I'm not taking any chances).

    Here are the costs, and thanks in advance!

    US Fans:
    30.00 - King Grayskull
    5.50 - ship from SDCC to KY
    2.00 - packing supplies (box & peanuts)
    12.50 - ship from KY to your place
    2.50 - PayPal fees
    = 52.50
    Original deposit = 47.50
    Balance due = 5.00
    Balance due if you want insurance = 7.50

    Canada & Mexico:
    30.00 - King Grayskull
    5.50 - ship from SDCC to KY
    2.00 - packing supplies (box & peanuts)
    22.50 - ship from KY to your place
    3.50 - PayPal fees
    = 63.50
    Original deposit = 63.00
    Balance due = 0.50

    All other international shipments:
    30.00 - King Grayskull
    5.50 - ship from SDCC to KY
    2.00 - packing supplies (box & peanuts)
    34.00 - ship from KY to your place
    3.50 - PayPal fees
    = 75.00
    Original deposit = 63.00
    Balance due = 12.00

    Val! Why You sneaky little ....

    I see that you refunded the excess I sent you. I was checking in on the status to tell you NOT to refund anything (thats why I sent you extra to begin with!!! That could have been gas money/dough for your troubles).

    But of course you are fair and kind and you absolutely rock for doing all of this. I have to post mass amounts of THANKS for all you have done. THANKS SO MUCH!

    See, if you had said "The extra is a donation for the site"
    then I wouldn't have refunded it.

    Otherwise, I can't take your money unless you demand it with your foot on my neck.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    So, we, the proud new owners of the soon to be shipped KGS will have an inflatable power sword tucked in as well, correct? Looking forward to it!

    Hey Val,

    I just sent the extra $12.00 for international shipping to you, via Paypal. Thank you again for doing this for us. I know that those of us getting a King Grayskull/ inflatable sword of power package are very, very grateful.

    Take Care,
    Darren
    Mattel please, buy the He-Man and She-Ra cartoons from Entertainment Rights. If you owned Both Filmation related "MotU" cartoons, plus "NA" and "MYP" cartoons, you would be able to distribute any or all 4 cartoons to Television in the lead up to another relaunch or a live action movie. Plus, you could include Filmation and "NA" animated characters in "MotU:C"!

    Long Live 'MOTU'!

    Just sent extra shipping payment. Can't say thank you enough.



    And Fisto - direct to DVD MOTU from Mike Young productions is the best idea I have heard in a while.

    We're completely out. Sorry.

    In the US, these are shipping out for 52.50 total.

    By comparison, the ones on eBay are going for 50 to 60 each plus shipping (which is upwards of what.. 10.00 or so?)... roughly 60 to 70 total.
    So you aren't paying a terrible amount more on eBay.

    Welllll, thats what I intended for it to be, but then again thats what I get for not opening my mouth (er, hands?) and making that known

    That being said, I have sent it back to you, and then some, as a long overdue donation.

    Thanks again bro!

    A BIG thank you to you and all involved with getting the King Grayskull figures out to us! You've certainly gone above and beyond for us!

    Thank you

    I can't wait to get this figure...it being the first MotU Classics figure! If it looks half as good as it does from the pics on the net it will be an amazing figure! People at work have asked me to bring it in once I get it. Who knows? Maybe some at work will decide to start collecting MotUC!

    A big thanks to Val and Adora for all their help! I really appreciate all their effort and have gone above and beyond to help out a fellow motu fan.

    Cheers!

    I guess no more KG's left for us late comers who are not lucky to yet have one?

    What would have been cool is if some of the members raising money for the site had some extras for sale here.. of course raising the price to make some money for the site. I bid close to $80 US on a figure this week.. and lost it! I was thinking though I would love to see some of that extra money earned on the figure go to a site like this.

    I had the list open for folks to get one prior to SDCC, and they had to prepay so I could buy them for them at the show.
    There was no way to have extras. Sorry.

    NIIICEE!! New to the site, lovin' the comradery My advice to folks who are currently bidding on eBay, wait for the hype of the con to subside. Yes, it might be like Keldor, where you might never see the price drop. Then again, it could be like past exclusives that have dropped to their original cost of the figure.

    No worries JVS3.. great to see that those that can make it out to the conventions help out other members here.. I think that is what makes this a great site to be a part of. I will continue to watch ebay for a figure.

    Thank you again, JVS3. It was extremely kind of you to do this for all of us who could not attend SDCC but wanted a KG. And thank you to Adora for taking the time to help out as well. This is very exciting.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! Did I say thank you? LOL! Seriously...thank you Val and Adora for getting these things out to us! What a great figure! The pictures online don't do this guy any justice at all! Oh...mine is a "regular" KG. The packaging is so massive! I love it! Mattel really hit one out of the ballpark with this figure! If King Grayskull is any indication...the Classics line is going to be totally top notch! My wallet is crying right now!
