    I shall compile a new list!

    Hamley's Guards are £6.00 each
    Lesters from the Leicester Square Lego store are £5.99 each.

    I bought a box full of small padded envelopes, so they work out at 10p each, and I can get 5 figs in the envelope.

    UK postage (2nd class, Large Letter) is 76p

    So some examples:

    1 Guard & 1 Lester in the UK = £12.85

    A bigger envelope to the UK (can get about 15 figs in) is £1.99 for the envelope + £2.90 postage

    European postage (for a small bag) is £2.55

    USA postage for a middle-sized bag (about 6-8 figs) was £1.09 (envelope) + £4.45 postage.

    What we did recently, to cut down on postage, was that I sent a box of about 30 Lesters and 30 Guards to @SumoLego and he's going to distribute them to the people who asked for them.

    I'm happy to send of individual envelopes if there are just one or two North American requests, but if there are a bunch, it might be worth doing something like that again.  I'd need to check that SumoLego was ok with that, as obviously he had to lay out about £300 up front.

    I'll make a new list of the requests that I've got and PM people for details.

    Hi @BooTheMightyHamster , very generous of you to do this.

    If possible could I request 2 guards please? I'm in the UK but hoping to avoid Hamley's £5 postage. 

    Many thanks! :)

    (For those in the US, the polys are still enroute.  I will be in-touch with everyone for payment and delivery arrangements once I recieve them.)
    Thanks for the update, @SumoLego.

    Have the payment directions been posted, @BooTheMightyHamster?

    I will be handling those arrangements once the polys get to me.  I am still awaiting delivery.

    I think I've contacted everyone who's asked for figs.  If you haven't heard from me, PM me with a nudge.

    Hi @Bobbtom
    I can do that.  I don't think @SumoLego will have any spares, but it's worth waiting for him to reply just in case he does, because that'll save on your postage costs.

    Sumo is out of guards, so if you do send him a second shipment, please reserve 4 guards for me. Thanks!
  • BooTheMightyHamsterBooTheMightyHamster Northern edge of London, just before the dragons...Member Posts: 1,281
    I'll see if he's interested, but I've sent about 5 packets off to people in the US since I sent that box, so there may not be sufficient demand for another bulk shipment.
  • WatermosssWatermosss North WalesMember Posts: 2
    A little package arrived today! Thanks @BooTheMightyHamster!
  • WeezyCupcakeWeezyCupcake Member Posts: 86
    Sorry I'm late on this, but if another shipment is in the works I would be interested in 2 Lesters and two guards. Happy to work a deal with somebody on the other side of the pond as well. I'm in the US. Thanks

    Plenty in stock at Hamley's Trafford centre today.

    I'm happy to do another batch.  

    The savings is on shipping for those that want only a pair or less than four.  Obviously, the more polys Boo can fit in the smaller bubble mailer, the cheaper overall cost.

    Definitely interested for 2. I know it is a bit off topic, and not sure if @BooTheMightyHamster can help, but I'm also looking to get a bunch of Lester polys too (if they can still be gotten from the store)

    Ok, I'll send off figs to those that I've already been in contact with (some went yesterday, the remainder will be in the next few days), but for any new USA requests I'll start making a list.  If we get enough I'll arrange a second shipment to @SumoLego
    If anyone's in a hurry though, PM me and I can send them direct.

    Postage to the USA for a padded envelope is between £3.25 and about £5.50, depending on envelope size, and I can probably get about 15 max in the largest envelope.  After that it makes sense to send a small box to SumoLego.

    Thus far it appears to be:

    @Bobbtom   4 x Guards
    @WeezyCupcake   2 x Guards, 2 x Lesters
    @madforLEGO   2 x Guards, 'A bunch' of Lesters

    (First batch of Guards and Lesters are on their way to their new US homes.  I hope to get the rest out by Tuesday, assuming the couple of stragglers get back to me.)

    @SumoLego if you are going to do another batch please put me down for 4 of each please. Don't know if anyone else is interested in joining.  Thanks

    @Bobbtom  
    @WeezyCupcake   
    @madforLEGO   

    Doesn't look like there's sufficient interest to send another box over to the US, but I'm happy to send them direct to you if you'd still like some figs.  Guards are £6.00 each, Lesters are £5.99 each and P&P would be about £4.00, give or take.

    Cheers.
