    Petition: Use the European Distribution Centers at least for Castle Grayskull

    Since 200 dollars for the shipment to Europe is clearly the umpteenth solution to destroy MOTUC if you really want to make the Castle Grayskull, use the European Distribuition Centers at least for Castle Grayskull.
    Not only the International customers are threated as B-customers but they keep to punish us!

    Unless something can be done about the absurd shipping price it is an easy pass from me. I was desperately looking forward to this, but they've not made it realistic for us international fans.

    Yep, just got charged $198.75 to ship to the UK.
    That is Ģ122 UK sterling. Ouch.

    I still think overall Ģ278 for Castle Grayskull is a good investment for a very limited item. I can see this going for twice that on UK eBay in a yearor so. I certainly don't think it will loose money.

    Dear Scott ... i mourns the death of the heart see the castle of Grayskull and know that it could not buy due to the high price of shipping. Hey ... not everyone can support certain expenses (including myself). Not really it can remedy this situation harmful for the line as many abandon (unfortunately) the project?

    I support this completely. They already have the facilities to distribute other Mattel products like Barbie so why not send the ordered number of Castles in the same shipment as these & ship from there?

    I wouldn't have ever thought, that shipping to Germany could be so enormous! In the cheapest way, one Castle Grayskull would cost us 550 US Dollars and this only, if we order two pieces. I think, based on this, not many international fans would be able to support the preorder of Castle Grayskull. So I am supporting a possible european distribution from e. g. Amserdam, if this could be cheaper.

    I Agree. Scott, if you read this, We, european fans and customers, need an european distribution centre. this is necessary if you want Items like Castle Greyskull. We Want an European distibution centre. we'll save in shipment cost and in extra taxes.

    Supported, the excessive shipping price is what stopping me from buying this.

    I could probably buy a plane ticket & pick the damn thing up in person for not much more than the cost of shipping & at least that way I'd get a holiday out of it too!

    supported, obviously.

    as it is now, 560 imported. I'm not even close to consider it. I was ready to pay $75-100 for shipping, which I already think is A LOT!
