Hi guys

I have now to times had baggies that i brougth from peopple here on the board. Sendt from the States to me in Europe . In a padded envelope. The first time the figures survived the trip.

But here the second time im now the very sad owner of a baggie figure with a servert head .

I had not in my wildest dreams thought that serius collectors would send vintage stuff like that . But i guess i / we have to say to evry one we buy from . Don't send stuff in a padded envelope .


If any one here thinks that any thing send by mail gets a Barry White smooth treatmenet . Then do watch this movie or some of the other on youtube.

Strange thing is, speaking from a uk perspective, using royal mail it is no more expensive to send one loose figure to europe/usa in a small box than it is to send in a jiffy bag. I'm fortunate that where i work, i can pick up good size small boxes for this purpose. Not sure how it works sending to the uk from abroad, but yeah, certainly anything of any value should be sent in a box or, at least well wrapped up in extra bubble wrap and then put in a jiffy bag.
