    How do you ship large Lego flattened boxes?

    All right, thanks @deraven! I thought as much, but I wanted to make sure there wasnt some option I was missing just incase. Thanks again.

    How do you ship large Lego flattened boxes?

    Thank you very much , @MAB and @deraven for your wonderful advice! I'll see if I can find some mass quantity of boxes for hopefully a semi-cheap price at my local supply store. Last question I have is what the cheapest option for shipping one would be for someone in USA. I don't think I can ship this as media, and I'm hoping to pay less than $15 if I do plan to ever ship one out. Thanks again you two, I appreciate it. If either of you knows the best carrier to ship one is, I'd be more than happy to hear what you have to say.

    How do you ship large Lego flattened boxes?

    Hi everyone! I was wondering how you guys go about shipping large flattened lego boxes. I just got a bunch of modular ones and others and I'm just wondering how to ship one or so just in-case I ever need to sell one on bricklink or ship one to a friend. Hope I posted this to the right forum.

    [MOC] Classic Space Beta-II Refinery Base

    After gaining access to launch from the Beta-I Command Base on Exis XII, some crew members were sent to help keep the refinery base in touch. After putting on their new uniforms for the region, they are relocated and ready to trade with the locals! IMG_5008 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr By using the portable fusion generator for the region, the workers are able to keep the pump running to collect the area's gooey marsh fluid in order to form erchois fuel crystals. IMG_5016 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr Sadly though, the local reptilia also need that marsh fluid! Looks like we'll have to get a new wrench. IMG_5011 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr I've always loved the HO scale garage doors from the 60s and I finally found a good use for one in classic space, do you guys think it fits in? IMG_5017 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr When ready, the latest model of the federation's one person support spacecraft (Nebulus series) is ready to take a flight back to Beta-I. IMG_5023 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr Inside the refinery, the gooey substance is being refined into crystals of pure energy to use and also to trade with the Zephii race. IMG_5031 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr IMG_5033 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr IMG_5020 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr IMG_5021 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr Luckily, the local land life is normally passive and seems to enjoy eating the plants of the area. Yum!!! IMG_5035 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr The Nebulus VI can also be loaded with the fuel cargo and can be easily reconfigured into a land support vehicle! transformation by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr IMG_5027 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr The engine can easily be removed from the front to be worked on via the workbench. IMG_5028 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr Lastly, both baseplates can be separated and can be used as separate bases or can easily be reconfigured. IMG_5045 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr The total piece count is 2000. This is among some of my first space creations so thanks for looking! I hope you enjoyed. Take care and as always, happy travels, Earthling. v2 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr Here are a few more quick photos for anyone interested:

    That's some wonderful hull shaping you have there! I love the incline towards the stern. Also, your colors are very nice (especially the dark red for the flooring). The yellow hose along the side actually looks really nice in my opinion as it adds more bulk on the exterior sides which is just normally tiled. Great rigging and an overall excellent vessel! I absolutely love it! Also, I do have to agree with Phes. Where dem figs?

    Space Turtles! (part 1)

    Great design, Celloguy! The wacky ship designs are always the best ! You don't often the insectoid wings in builds, so that's a great use for those. It's always neat to see your added stories to the ships. The only question to be asked now is: are they peaceful?

    [LDD] Greek Sacoleve

    @Disabella I agree with Anders. It's tricky to get a balance of the perfect cost on bricklink for what you're looking for. For me, it's mainly difficult because I love all the rare colors and pieces like chrome. The way I think of it is that you should be happy with the way your build turns out and not take shortcuts in order to get exactly what you're looking for, even if it takes extra time and...extra money. I'd rather have one build that I was able to achieve exactly what I was looking for rather than two that I had to take shortcuts on. However, I do think that if you come across an expensive piece that's not exactly prevalent and important in your build (such as an expensive reddish-brown slope, that can be easily replaced) then you should take just a few seconds to adjust in in stud.io beforehand. At least you're not in the USA right now! With the virus, the American market took a huge hit to costs. My recent order came to 42 carts! Lastly, I'll add that before you place your order, you should probably design a stand for the ship as it looks like the bottom is only 1 stud wide so it will need more support to stay up. Once again, this is truly a gorgeous ship and I'm very eager to see it in bricks and rigged!

    [LDD] Greek Sacoleve

    Oh my goodness, Disabella, this is gorgeous! You did a fantastic job replicating the very difficult angles and capturing the beauty of the sacoleve! As my memory goes, I don't think anyone on eurobricks has yet to post any sacoleve ships, so I'm greatly looking forward to seeing this built. The bow is my favorite aspect of your build! Truly amazing. I'm going to go look again!

    So THAT'S where all the old cafe MISB modulars went! I love the treasure chests as stairs, ha! Nice rockwork and a great story to read as well. Wonderful build, Samarth!

    Another wonderful ship, @Bodi! You did an excellent job putting those white hull parts to great use as well as those golden accents in the stern. As always, your rigging is excellent as well as your overall design of the ship. Love it!

    [MOC] Huge Rogue Shadow with full interior!

    Oh my goodness... This is AMAZING! Brings back so many memories. The modular features as well as the curvature make this one spectacular model! I love how smooth everything is as well as the color accents. Gorgeous, truly gorgeous. Excellent work, Evilkirk!

    [MOC] Alien Train Station

    That's awesome! I love the look of the train with the pure black and trans-red! The skull and the very smooth curvature of it also look excellent. The minifigures and the station itself are as well very nicely designed! Looks like something straight out of an H.P. Lovecraft book. Once again, excellent work. Love it!
