And New Zealand, we need a PAB wall here too.
But lets not turn this into a "Why isn't there a PAB in my country?" thread.
Eilif, what do the LEGO store employees think of you when you pack the PAB cups so well? I don't know if they'd appreciate your techniques...
Agreed, I'd rather this thread be about PAB packing strategies, and not
a complaint thread for the lack of PAB walls in certain areas.

but when you pack them up, did the store worker watch you very strictly or you can have hours of packing there?
so the PAB cup rule is fill as you can fit in that cup, am i right?
I've packed dozens of PAB cups at stores in Minnesota, Oregon, and Illinois and I've never had a problem. In fact, if business is slow, I often have pleasant conversations with LEGO store staff. I've heard from other AFOL's that at some stores, they will actually give you hints on packing a PAB cup.
Sometimes I'll pack more than one cup, and if any of you remember the $100 PAB tubs that were sold for a while in 2007, once a friend an I took nearly an hour to pack one (it was quite heavy when we were done) at a wall located right behind the cash register and got nothing but friendly conversation with the staff.
This is not my pic, but it's the same tub packed similarly.
