  1. I hope this is the right place to ask this, but I've been thinking of making a sort-of custom minifigure of Pharah without her helmet. And so far it seems like this hairpiece would fit her the best So I was wondering if anyone who has her and this hairpiece could take a pic of her wearing it so I could see if it looks good? Or if anyone has a suggestion for a hairpiece that would work better?

    Cheap way to do international shipping?

    I have been using bubble mailers but they still want to charge me for a package The weight isn't an issue, it doesn't affect the cost too much but as soon as they classify it as a package the cost doubles. I'm not sure I can qualify as a small business, I haven't sold that much yet haha. I checked online to see how much it would cost to ship it and put that as the shipping cost, but I thought I'd be able to ship it as a large envelope so my estimate was too low. Yeah, I ended up paying the difference, I'd never ask someone to pay more than what they already have because of my miscalculation. I did adjust the shipping cost though because I'd end up losing money if I didn't, but now I'm worried people won't want to buy because the shipping cost is almost double what the actual charms cost.
  6. So I've started making little phone charms as a hobby and to (hopefully) make some money on the side, and to reach a wider audience I decided to offer international shipping. Problem is, I've had no experience using it before and ended up paying twice what I posted as the shipping cost. I thought I would be able to ship it as a large envelope, but when I went to the post office the person behind the counter insisted it had to be shipped as a "package" which costs twice as much(which frankly is ridiculous, the things I'm selling are tiny and flat.) So I refused and went home and looked online for a cheaper option, but nothing would allow me to fill out a customs form without having my shipment being classified as a "package" and from there nothing was cheaper than $13. So the reason I'm posting this on a Lego forum is because I've made several international purchases via Bricklink of things like minifigures that had reasonable international shipping costs (around $5-6) and minifigures are a lot more bulky than what I'm trying to ship so I think I'm missing something here and I'm hoping someone here has some experience with this sort of thing and can help me. Or does the US just... not have a cheap way to ship internationally? TL;DR I'm trying to find a way to ship small things from the US without spending a fortune.

    Post Your Superhero Minifig Collections Here!

    Interesting! Too bad you can't remove the old arms without destroying them though, I'd love to be able to interchange them.

    I hate SDCC exclusives.

    This was something I noticed waiting in line too, kids always seemed to win the figs... Now that you mention this it seems kinda fishy. I mean it makes sense they don't want kids to be disappointed, but I doubt most parents will be letting them keep and play with a figure that's worth $150+, which makes the whole situation even sadder. And if it is indeed rigged, that's extremely shady, no matter the circumstances. Maybe just give the figures a printed SDCC stand or something. Or something like they did with Yoda, have an already available character and give them an exclusive SDCC t-shirt piece or something. Then collectors have something without completely screwing over the rest of the fans of said character.

    I hate SDCC exclusives.

    Some guy on ebay's selling like 10 of Vixen even though it's supposed to be limited to one per person. How greedy can you get? Like I get if it's a family all entering because they want one but this person just got them to sell them. Ugh. I know I need to make like Elsa and let it go but this makes me so frustrated.

    What is the story behind your profile picture?

    My friends say I look like a mermaid, and whenever they see something with a mermaid on it they tell me it's me. Especially if said mermaid is blonde. Also just a cool looking minifig. The other guys in the background were just on my desk at the time so I threw them in there. Also cool looking minifigs.

    Price watching

    I usually check toysnbricks.com, mostly for news on upcoming sets but they do post about sales and deals.
  12. I spent 2 and a half hours waiting in line and all I got was a sunburn. And I was one of the few lucky that even had a chance at getting one without paying $150+. And of course 90% of them are up on ebay now. Sorry for the rant, I'm super salty I hate scalpers and I hate this whole "super exclusive" nonsense.
  13. Mine got here too, thanks so much for the amazing figs!
  14. Thanks! Looks like I did get manatee B.
