    Notice in the description, it says that the buyer will pay a $5 handling fee on top of the $17.20 shipping charge.

    The figure isn't worth the opening bid price shipping included IMO.

    Granted, no one will get ripped off by this because (hopefully) it won't get a bid. But it still erks me that someone would even try to list an auction like this.

    but don't forget that extra $5 charge, so right back up to $17. Man what a d-bag.

    ...wow...

    That's not going to sell at all. Oh well, some people just like shooting themselves in the foot I guess.

    The sad thing is, some people like to jump the gun and win and auction without noticing the hidden BS that these shitty sellers throw in.

    I agree and hope no one gets suckered on this. Shipping should be $3 and some change, MAX. And HANDLING?! Give me a break, it's not hard to drop a 2oz. toy into a box with some bubble wrap and ship out. Sellers like this should be banned, but what can you do?

    Hmm. Depends on how he's shipping it. If it's going Priority it would ship for $5.25 (with a delivery confirmation number) and, yeah, people do charge handling...
