I wouldn't think they'd accept it for shipment like that. All four of the buildings are crushed. That's the way it goes.  :(

Everybody polka!

Damn, I'm sorry to hear that Elmeaux... Now, I'm scared to death about the turbo laser tower that Owen made.  I have a feeling it's going to come back destroyed...  I can honestly say, that I think the Post Office sucks right now.  I've probably received 20+ large boxes in the past from Owen and none of them were ever damaged like these have been that we're receiving...

One of the boxes I received appeared about the same as yours did - but it was the box with my figures in it, so only 2 of them were damaged.

I think if we do another of these, we are going to need to get the boxes insured.  This is just ridiculous.

I can safely say that FFURG was treated just as shoddy at C3 as you seemingly were at C4, Paul.  I literally told one Security guard to shove it up his ass at one point.  He didn't know how to respond and left in a huff but nothing came of it.

I figured, I'm here and I doubt LFL will be happy when you come telling me to leave, sooooooooo...  yeah nothing came of it. ;)

Seriously though, they were no better to deal with in Indy.  They wanted us to get out as soon as the time hit a certain hour and that was it.  The con workers had no desire to work though, and it sounds like LA was no better.  If you were "working", you worked with some pretty unsavory people out in Indy.  Any other business and those folks wouldn't have jobs.

My box arrived today in good shape. Everything seems to be there, accept one of the fishing tackle boxes I sent, which is no big deal. I did find the antenae for my building in the box, wich is ashame because that means whom ever won my building is going to have a hole in the roof. I'll be putting a lot of the figures and vehicles up for auction on ebay to help recoup some of the cost I put into the project. So if anyone is interested they'll  be listed under the seller name Order66Customs. 

Thanks for taking such great care of my figs.

I got my final package in the mail today - the Gun Tower.  Amazing what a differnence this came back in - it was like getting it from Owen for the first time.  Thanks to whoever packed this one so well, I have to admit everything in there really was wrapped well in the protective baggies.  Everything in this box was in perfect shape and never looks like it even left my house. 

Also, big thanks to Jedistyle for the market stall he let me have, and to Roron Corobb for the planet sculpture.  These will definitely be in future Rykrof Enloe chapters, so keep your eyes peeled for those of you that read the series.

Chewie,
Glad to hear yours arrived safely.  I know you were very worried about the gun tower!!

My package arrived safe and sound tonight.  Thanks to everyone for packing it up.  Everything came back just fine!

Fritz - I think I ended up with your Plano box.  I sent my figures in one but took it home with me (Paul may have forgotten that we discussed this).  If you want it back, I can send it to you.  If you want me to just buy it from you, I'll send you some paypal $$.  Just shoot me a PM if you want.

Yah, at the time we were packing it up we couldn't remember which tackle box when to who so we guessed. Sorry about that.

I think Ryan is into Warhammer (I could be wrong) Maybe somebody can use it for that.

I think that was Brent, cause it isn't me.

I put more than $300 into the terrain, including shipping, that's why I'm wanting it back. I think I'm going to try and add to it a bit and then display it as a different sort of diorama in my collection room.
