Awesome job Jay. Funny - I didn't see you mention anywhere - Put MOC in padded envelope. Ship.

I think I'm going to include your procedure in my payment for any moc I buy on ebay,.

Thank you so much for posting this up Jay. How much will the costs of shipping for that Trilogo Luke Jedi figure in its Star Case with the plastic bubble wrap and styrofoam chips? Smile

Superb guide Jay!

Do you think the bubblewrap is strong enough for securing the bubble? I always use a thin cardboard for that.

Uli, the bubble wrap is perfect for the bubbles. Thats the way I send mine out, minus the Star case. I just wrap the MOC in more bubble wrap before placing it in the box. I haven't had any problem with one yet.

Thanks Shawn, I appreciate that. At least I will know how much it costs to ship a well packaged action figure out from the UK since I usually purchase loose figures, and has been a while since I purchased a carded one.

Hi jay

That's a really useful guide. I have used this way of rapping MOC for some time now, and I don't think I haven’t had problems with bobbles and so on even that I have mailed MOC with fragile bobbles like the ones on pbp MOC.

Cheers Michael

Nice Trilogo MOC Luke Jedi btw. Smile
