    Two serious Pledge Manager questions for the Reaper Guys: 1) Can you disclose the weight of the packages to allow us to look into reshipping options? 2) I understand that when you choose the options and save the options that locks them in - but does it lock in the postage? If I choose a reshipping service at a later date will/can the pledge manager cope with this? Reasons being Ma'alDrakar - that's a $60 Dragon + $60 shipping for me. Plus 17% Duty and then 20% VAT on the cost AND the Duty (this is what I was charged last time, potentially a bigger package this time...) Thats a $160 Dragon right there :( At that rate, it is going to be cheaper to wait and buy retail with free shipping and in a single package which will come in at under the duty threshold.

    Can we get a better picture of Diabolus please? The pose on the site - at first glance anyhow - seems that he only has two legs!

    You can't expect Reaper to eat the cost of international shipping. It'd be one thing if it was at all close to the cost of U.S. shipping but it is not. Don't expect Reaper to meet the cost of international shipping at all. But US Shipping is free - i.e. subsidised by the campaign and receiving a discount from it and thus everyones contributions. ROW shipping is at cost. If US shipping was at cost, then all is fair. This is not the case so there's a lot of European people especially peed off at this. Don't pretend things are fair and equitable if they are demonstrably not. Nevertheless, Pledge made. Bring on that dragonny goodness... US shipping is almost a flat cost compared to the exponential growth that overseas shipping sees. Irrelevant. In fact, if the cost is really that flat, why aren't ROW backers given that same cost as a discount off the shipping? Just saying...

    Nice to see that rest of the world is being treated as second class citizens again with regards to postage. Nevertheless, pledge made...
  6. Awesome! Love the striation - very different take on a blue that works really nicely here.
