    Congrats.

    That Pile-O-Loot feature is going to be the death of my UPS man. I've got a pile I've been sitting on since something like April. And there's a supreme, several ultras, and an immense number of deluxes in there. He's gonna want to hunt me down the day he has to deliver that thing.

    I've been waiting until the Matrix statue comes out to ship it. All the big stuff at once that way.

    I have no idea. The last two times I did that they did. And when I got home there was this HUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE box covering nearly the entire kitchen table. I have no idea how my wife got it in the house all by herself.

    My wife have never hurt me for my purchases before, but if there was a box like that, she might...

    Hence the reason why I got something for her, now whether or not she appreciates that gesture is another story...

    That's why we each have our own spending money. It saves on the fights about buying our own stuff. Neither of us get in trouble for that.

    Closest I came was that day, when she said, "What the hell is in that?"

    Cool stuff man. When I shipped my last pile of loot from BBTS, it was for over $3200 and cost over a hundred to ship - took like five boxes. I ship my POL about every two or three months. It's a great feature.

    I got my second pile a few weeks ago. I had it building up since january, and was wondering if there wasn't some kind of "gentleman's agreement" as far as how long you should have them holding onto a pile before you have it shipped. it was just over $200, and here's a pic of the fun stuff:

    Very true, I wonder where they put your things when it's in the "Pile of Loot" feature, do they just make sure the the warehouse has enough to fill the "loot" orders or do they actually set aside your items for you?

    Let it be, I used to (indirectly) work for UPS for a company that contracted with them and it wasn't a good company to work with. UPS directly, in most areas, isn't much better. When I have a choice, I use USPS or anybody but UPS to ship with.

    I have a pile-of-loot waiting until some of my August pre-order items are available before I have it shipped out.

    the thing is, after I put that trigun gazelle in my pol, they had a sale, so I removed it, and then added it again with the discount. THEN, they had a bigger sale, and I did the same thing again. it went from being like $22 to $16. I'm surprised they don't have some kind of charge for that.

    I also don't have that much patience. When I pay for something, I want it soon. I could never wait 6 months after already paying for it. I see no benefit to the "pile o loot".

    shipping adds up quickly, my friend. all that stuff I got was only $12 shipping. if I had each one shipped when it came out or decided I wanted it, it would've been more than $40. the other thing is it allows you a grace period to make sure you really want it. once it's paid for, you can still return it for full store credit before it's shipped.

    Actually, I'm pretty sure the FFX Play Arts figures (if that's indeed what's being discussed) are new, so they shouldn't be too hard to find soon.

    Anyway, I have one of those SDCC Evil Lynn statues waiting to ship as soon as the SOC Great Mazinger/Venus A two pack comes in. I'm just hoping that I actually save something on shipping by letting it pile up, since the statue, despite its small size, was not as cheap as I would have hoped to ship.
