    I remember GR1ML0CK saying that he has received orders from Uncle Billy where the item box arrived damage but the contents were fine. Is that still the case with UB?

    Yes, still soft, crushed boxes. Got KO EVA Prime a few days ago, took 2 months to arrive. Box was badly damaged once again, the figure was ok.

    That is more a Chinese mailing issue than am Uncle Billy issue. Just assume the Chinese mailman will dropkick your package half way here.

    I've received plenty of packages from China and none of the item boxes were beat up. Then again I've never ordered from Uncle Billy/Aliexpress. I've ordered from johonsontony but those items were small and fit in an envelope.

    Just FYI, but Uncle Billy and Aliexpress aren't the same things. Many people seem to think Aliexpress is one person, but it's actually quite like Ebay in regards to being multiple different sellers.

    You might have known that, but some others don't. If you already did, disregard this.

    IE: If you have a bad time on Aliexpress with one person doesn't mean you will always have a bad time with Aliexpress as a whole.
