    Break it down to the two components and see if they can articulate enough to compress. If you want to save money, have it shipped First Class.

    I'm keeping it original just with cybertron prime in it... just like I have with my Omega Supreme... so that 4 of that mold considering... regular powered up limb mode + energon wingblade mode (of which if I can find a second cheap will be in the other config)

    So that seems like a great idea splitting them up.... gonna have to see....

    what are the rulez for first class that person does have other toy I want....
    so some could fit with 1 half... and 1 with the other :) 

    someone that's got a list of specs/costs ... with weight/dimesion so that I can see up till which I can fill a package?

    Cybertron Prime? How in the world do you get Cybertron Prime to fit into the Energon Omega Supreme mold? Do you mean Energon Optimus?

    As for shipping, if there's another figure the guy has and you want it, you probably would save on shipping if you put everything into the same package. It depends on the size of this other figure and the shipping service this guy will be using, however, so if you could provide that information it could probably help us help you.

    Ship it parcel post, break it down and condense the two sides of energon omega sentinel into their gun platform mode specified in the instructions. From there, move the legs closer. You should be able to form something like a square with a tad of things sticking out, kinda like Idaho. In that most compressed state, you can probably get away with 10$ shipped, especially if you two are close to each other.

    are we talking about us to us or us to netherlands? if it's to netherlands it's either priority international or first class. first class is cheapest, has 4 lb limit and no tracking, priority international has 70 lb limits, has some tracking but cost almost twice as much.

    he will fit in the shoe box priority box :) 

    i have shipped three this way...you need to split him in halves...then do some creating folding along the joints..but he will fit with packaging and ship fine.

    When I sold an Omega Supreme, I was able to fit it into a box about 12" x 8" x 10". Takes a lot of folding but it fits.

    split it in the halves...then you have to do folding along the joints to make the 1/2 fit in the box...sorry but i do not have an energon omega sentinel anymore( i sold my supreme and setinel on ebay a while ago)

    and then you have to work on making them fit in the box...

    it does not take too much effort to get them to fit once they are folded up correctly (each half)

    For future reference: Don't ship anything in a generic Nike box from the last several years. They're barely strong enough to protect a pair of shoes, never mind toys.

    There's a huge price difference when it comes to shipping some of the larger or heavier items. When I could not find the right box size, I cut up a larger box to get it to a shipping dimension that will accommodate the product size.
