    Shipping is expensive, period. Last time I sent a package to France for Xmas to my family, I paid like 80 dollars and it was probably a lot smaller than CG. Then again, 200 seems like a lot of moolah. I mean, Castle Grayskull can't weight that much... Maybe there's a glitch?
    Before everyone brandishes forks and torches, let's wait until Toyguru clarifies.

    Just curious, has anyone sent a Hasbro SDCC Helicarrier abroad? How much was that? I saw a lot of people sending it to themselves at the Comic COn so they wouldn"t have to carry it around for 4 days.

    Just pre-ordered one Castle. Ouch ~$300 after tax and shipping. Hope that doesn't turn too many people off. Even if you don't want one, just order it anyway. There will always be someone out there who will buy it from you. I for one am keeping mine. I never got the playset as a kid so this is a dream come true.

    This much for international shipping is pure greed. A few months ago I ordered 14 figures and the shipping still didn't come to $200. This is unjustifiable and needs to be addressed right away.

    Nobody should have gotten one, they were doing $0 authorizations so it it just to test the card is active.

    I should have said 10+ CG's for me in my last post

    Hopefully they'll put the pre-order at the top of the homepage instead of making you hunt for it...

    $200.00 for shipping for some of you?



    This must be some sort of mistake.

    Same here. Since the amount is supposed be $0.00, I suppose it may vary from bank to bank whether or not they bother showing a Zero Charge. Personally, I would have liked to have seen the charge but as I'm using the same card that I always with Mattel, I'm quite sure they will get their money WHEN (Hope, Hope HOPE) the time comes.

    Long Live MOTU!!!!

    +1 here.

    Although seeing all the people not buying because of the shipping cost makes my hope of actually seeing this drop considerably. Oh well...I didn't have a shelf big enough for this. It would have ended up a Floor sitter like my BMF and BAT-AT.
    Our goal is to make sure all MOTU collectors can get these new figures.

    So, I have never dealt with the thermometer that Mattel uses. How often is it updated? Still shows 0.

    Well thats what i mean, did it show up at 0.00 or was there just nothing?
    As i mentioned in an earlier post i was using a non default credit card, and after i hit enter the page refreshed to update the shipping charge (that for some reason didnt update) and i saw the message "invalid code" for the csc (meaning my cc probably reverted back to default). Since there is no way to see on the website which cc i used for purchase i either have to wait for an aunorization charge of 0 to show up or make sure i have the funds on both ccs which is a pain. I did get a confirmation email, just bizar

    It's automatic. A bit too slow, but it comes down on it's own.

    I'd guess they will bump it to the main ads soon.

    It's not a dynamic image, so someone will have to manually make a new image once in a while. It's not going to be updating live. My guess would be an update would happen at the end of each day or each morning.

    Yes, it was pulled down in the image I displayed. Thus the wink.

    They will update it whenever they want and with whatever level they want... Expect some thrilling and dramatic movement as we get close to the deadline

    Holy cow! Shipping for 2 to Washington was $71 USPS!! I changed to UPS for $87, since I have no faith for something this big to be shipped by Logistics and USPS and for it to arrive in good shape.
    Same thing here, $88 for 2 CGs to San Francisco CA is beyond ridiculous and $50 for taxes, so I'm gonna end up paying almost $638, that's $138 for taxes and shipping, that's almost 28% of the tag price! It's simply outrageous... I have to think about it, probably I'll just order 1 CG after all...

    Honestly, I have little faith in CG reaching the minimum order after those insane shipping prices DR is charging. Good luck everyone.

    I just checked my AMEX and it says PENDING AUTHORIZATION -0.00

    So they ran the card just no amount to authorize, like they said
