    Why not just order him yourself? You could have ordered him in the time it took to post.

    He is quite possibly underage and/or without a credit card.
    Just my guess though.

    Well just to let you know, you cannot send paper money through USPS, if thats how you intend to pay. It's illegal or against regulations or something. Good luck though, you're probably going to need it.

    It's not ILLEGAL. It's just dumb, and you'll be very lucky if your unopened letter with all the bills still inside get to where you're sending it. if it DOES get there, there's also absolutely nothing that stops the recipient from saying "hey, I never got it. Send me more money" because it's untraceable.

    OP: If you want to get NP before tomorrow, you're also very much out of luck. Stuff just doesn't go through the post that fast. Definitely not when HTS is involved.

    I know I'm going to get the sharp hot end of the poker for saying this but....what parent lets their 10 yr old browse internet forums unattended? :crazy:

    Ebay:
    Who said he was unattended? Maybe mom and/or dad were watching him as he typed.

    Have you actually asked your parents... who likely do have a credit card?

    Then I'm sure they would also say no to giving your address and money to a older complete stranger.

    Sorry kid. There's really nothing else you can do.

    It seems strange to me that you want someone to wait until he's almost out of stock then buy. Sorry kid, but this is what scams sound like.

    I'm all about helping a fellow fan but, seriously, if you have the money then you can ask mom or dad to order the toy for you and give them the cash. If you don't have the cash now then what's the incentive for one of us to buy it for you, send it, and possibly never receive anything?

    Everyone in this community are very helpful, but there are limits. I think you're out of luck.

    I was browisng the internet unsupervized when I was 10.

    Not every kid is some idiot who'll give out personal info at the drop of a request.

    /rant

    Also, why do you want to wait until it's out of stock?

    If you are 10 like you say you are, I feel your pain.
    When the first TF mail-away exclusives came out I was only 11 years old(1985-ish). I wanted the Omnibots and Reflector pretty bad. I had enough Robot Points and had saved up the cash(from my lunch money) but I had no adult to help me with sending the stuff out and writing me a check or getting me a money order. My parents unfortunately would not help me at all, they thought Transformers were a complete waste of money.

    So believe me, I know how you feel.

    Also..isn't TFW like..under COPPA required that everyone under 13 have parental consent to be using the forum, or else ban their account? I know it was like that on GameFAQs, but moreso..so long as you don't admit to being under 13, no one really cares.

    Sometimes I think that now. But I love 'em anyways.

    But man, that's harsh.
