    Thanks, that's interesting advice. I'm in Australia so it's a smaller market than the US but also there are fewer Unicron's up for sale so not sure how it will go. The figure cost me AU$880, so it would need to sell for a lot to bring a really large return. I'm not fussed, just want my money back, the cost of shipping and fees and some extra change for my trouble. I'm glad you mentioned this though because I didn't realize eBay was taking 11% fee from sales. That's a LOT. Need to ensure I'm not out of pocket because of fees!

    Different figure altogether but that's ok. I'll wait for pics from someone else.

    *Sigh*. Canada. Not that you guys should have to wait this long either, but man, I live about an hour from Hasbro's warehouse in California. And I'm still waiting.

    Mike from Hasbro Pulse told me that they hope to get everyone's shipped out by 4/22. Fingers crossed, but I wouldn't be surprised if they blow right past that deadline.

    For Ebay US - Final value fee % + $0.30 per order - 12.55% on total amount of the sale up to $7,500 calculated per item - 2.35% on the portion of the sale over $7,500 - There is also some shipping % ebay assesses on your shipping charge the buyer pays - Paypal (before ebay dropped them for in house managed payments to act like a bank & make the paypal fee too) was 3% I think?

    I checked and the Paypal was $43.66 on their fee (Ebay $136). So total fee (for an American) was $179.00 on $1275 +100 shipping. Not sure if they charged me on the shipping I got or not. So figure in your shipping obviously and what they're gonna take so you do ok on the sale.


    I shipped it UPS which did come out to be about $100 on the nose. The problem was it was a "residential" delivery which they charge more for, plus I wanted a signature and insurance for the cost of the auction so grand total was $120 shipped. They also tacked on a couple bucks for "bulky package". I sorta lost the $20 since I asked $100 but I figure it was worth it to make sure it got there and I was covered if it got broken or something in transit.

    I could have just shipped it with straight weight which would have been a lot less but I figured it was better not to screw around so I threw the dimensions in there and weight and that's where it ended up.

    I'm in the GTA (Canada) and mine just showed up out of the blue this morning. Happened to have the front door open when the FedEx truck pulled up, so knew exactly what is was when I saw the size of the box. But the funniest part—Hasbro sent me an email 2 hours later to let me know it had shipped and I can now track the package. True to character, Unicron just shows up whenever the hell he wants.

    Just got mine too! (I'm in Calgary). Now I can just look forward to FedEx dumping him in a snowbank halfway up my sidewalk.

    I'm in Ottawa. I received mine on Friday with zero notice or ship notification from Hasbro or FedEx. Then about an hour ago I received the Hasbro Pulse shipping notice...... What a joke.

    I just got the shipping confirmation email. My Unicron shipped on Friday from Hasbro's Montreal facility and will be delivered today. Now I'm not working and am actively staring out the window looking for a FedEx truck </giddy>...

    Same, considering they put up a third wave of pre sales with a bigger price increase too, so they best have some saved for any type of qc issues for the BBTS buyers...Also I don't think people who pre ordered from Tfsource have gotten theirs either so I'm guessing the 3rd party sellers in the US may not have gotten there's yet from Pulse is my guess.

    Most likely. But still, it almost feels like watching everyone get their presents on Christmas morning, and yours got left in the attic.
