So, I have too many Target Exclusives. Everytime I saw one I couldn't pass them up. But now, I'm trading them and selling most of them away. I just don't need that many AWE Strikers, Night Specters, and HISS Tanks. My big problem is shipping these things out. I'm now wondering if it's even worth getting rid of them.
have question to those of you that have bought them online or traded for them. Or, if you've sold them or traded them away. How have you seen them shipped? Can the vehicles be shipped straight in the Hasbro box they came in? Do those boxes need to be placed inside another boxe with peanuts?
How have you seen packages shipped that weren't in the Hasbro shipping boxes?
How much money am I looking at to ship three of these things at a time? If they aren't in the Hasbro box, what will a box and peanuts run me?
I'm the best there is at what I do, ha ha! But, what I do isn't very nice, ha ha!

I would definitely put them in another package with peanuts... The windows on the boxes wont stand up to the rigors of being shipped...

I have shipped a few of these out, and shipping was around 7.50 first class 2 - 3 day, including delivery confirmation from the USPS. I shipped sets of them in 16x16x16 boxes that i got at the store for $2. I pack them with stuff around the house, just enough to cove them, I think I used 1 brown paper back and then the big plastic bag they came in from Target. I then use some clear box tape to tape over the edges and such. Nothing too crazy to package them and everyone gets them in good shape.
They can be a pain to ship out, because you cannot use the machine at the post office due to the box being large so you have to wait in line....which can be a big waste of 20 minutes or so depending on how big of a town you are in or when you go there.
So about $10 to ship a set(3) of these out. I stopped buying these because my target always seems to have a ton of them on hand, but just like SE, which were everywhere and now are in demand, these could be a hot commodity again when everyone realizes they cannot get them anymore.

I shipped all three to the uk.. in a box from staples.. I bubble wrap all three individually making sure that the window on the vehicles were facing the center of the box.. and just put a grip of shredded paper all around the vehicle , cut the box so it would be more tight and it wouldn't have a chance to move around and tape the hell out of it.. it arrived like 6 days later .. make sure you have an accurate scale cuz mines was off like two pounds and I had to pay the difference at the post office..
