C'mon guys, once again (and I do know this isn't going to work for everyone) many of us are in close proximity to other members, why not combine orders? Ten items would probably be $15-$16 to ship and you guys still have 3-4 months before the first one goes up for sale to organize such things. I do bulk orders almost every month for myself and my friends and shipping is *never* more than $2 an item if you can get at least 8 items.
That's great how you can work that out for your friends and yourself! I don't know anyone who personally collects figures at all, but if more AFi members could coordinate purchases together, it would be great.
