If you can avoid sending it through the mail, do it! I had a Generations Metroplex sent to me through Standard Mail and it had thin tissue paper surrounding the box. Luckily due to it's weight, it arrived well, but I know some people that weren't as fortunate. Their boxes looked like Tyson used it as a punching bag. The SDCC would have to be completely wrapped in bubble wrap or something like it to protect it (obviously). Doing anything less to someone paying that much for a figure would be a travesty. After wrapping it, you'd have to find a box big enough to fit it in. Good luck with that one... Current postage prices would be through the roof on that. Hasbro Toy Shop doesn't even use any kind of wrap for Metro. They use paper on top, and a few air bags. Though they have signature confirmation on their packages, so it goes through better hands at the post office. Honestly, your best bet would be to sell it to a local buyer. Possibly on Craigslist or something like that. I sold my Metroplex through Craigslist to a local buyer that couldn't find one when it came to the stores.
