    I always use USPS but have never paid customs, only on ups they are a bunch of money suckers!

    Oh ya! I snagged One as well.

    Americans don’t pay customs (lucky buggers) but UPS and FedEx use their own border agents, which supposedly speeds up the process, so they charge an additional “brokerage” fee. So it’s not reaaallly customs, it’s a fee to pay their personal border people. It’s like the new ebay global shipping program, dunno if anyone has used this, but they have their own hired customs staff and the customs fees they charge to pay said staff are totally insane (Like $75 plus $35 for shipping on a $300 item). 13% tax is enough, why do we have to pay handling and processing fees on top!? Haha

    I think we should pay customs.It brings money into the country on other country’s wears.China especially.A little equilibrium is needed but….this is a uni photo thread.This conversation for another time. :bigsmile:

    Oh man, I had the money saved and everything… and I missed them. Well, congratulations to everyone who snagged one, and I am looking forward to all your lovely pictures.

    Mercury Star, did you manage to get one or did you try e-mailing Susie in case someone ordered one for someone else who got one or in case there was an extra? I know you really wanted one so hopefully there would be one out there for you.

    No, I didn’t manage to get one. It’s okay though, I can save the money for something else.

    Right now I am just really excited to see what names got picked. 🙂

    The orange black bird one is also my absolute favorite and really want to see better pics of him. 🙂
    The cream one with the dolphin is also neat and hope to see pics of him as well.
    So excited. I am expecting mine soon. He is one from the last batch a friend let me make payments on his name is Sundance. Hopefully he will be here soon and I will post pics. 🙂

    My favorite from last batch was held back so I wouldn’t be surprised my favorites from this batch would also be. I think by my fav from last batch is suppose to go t o Ebay (orange seahorse marked one) I think personally the most unique ones have been held back for Ebay but I haven’t seen any yet. 🙁 I wish we knew before hand which are not gonna be put in grab bag batch so we don’t get excited for certain ones. Kinda disappointing waiting for your uni hoping for a certain one when it’s not even in the batch. 🙁

    Well, he didn’t get held back for ebay in particular I don’t think, who knows, but I think he had some kind of issue that had to be fixed. A few of my favorites did too. That mish-mashed one with all the hand painted stuff on it, the dolphin, the sock, etc I think is for ebay. Not surprising though, he was super unique as were the two orange ones from the last batch. I only happened to be visiting right before they were being packed up for the store so I got to get a peek at the left overs. There are a bunch though that I saw that were so awesome, and I hadn’t even noticed them before, so you might still be happily surprised. ^_^

    Lol that sock one was also one of my favs.
    Thanks for the info so I am not waiting to see pics of my favorites.
    I am waiting for mine which I already know what he looks like. He is not noticeable in the pictures from the last batch so yes you are right some beauties are not even noticed at first. 🙂

    Before everyone gets their hopes up, I am fairly certain that one got held back because of an issue. I think they ended up calling it Nevermore, but I could be wrong. There was another one with birds on it called Hitchcock, but I think it had a blue sky on it.

    Speaking of, I am looking for one of my top 5!!! One is called Catnip which was a rainbow leopard. Another was Kraken, the hot pink one with the tentacles. I forgot the names of the ones with the blue, pink, and gold sunset sky with the black scenery (there are two sort of like this, I THINK Hitchcock was one of them and the other was Starry something?), the one with the ice blue sky and the black scenery, or this other one with a ocean themed name that had a black base and a rainbowish pattern, orange eyes, magenta tail and little decorative dots. Kind of reminded me of Chameleon from the last batch, but in rainbow colors.

    Photos of some of them are in my ads and up on facebook. I took a few shots before they got boxed up.

    I have skittles and the hades young still up for trade or I might have some other cool stuff I could trade maybe perhaps <3

    Mine arrived today! I really like her, BUT I would trade her in a heartbeat for one with BLACKBIRDS on it! I also have lots of other grab bags & unique Windstones for a blackbird ‘corn (or I would pay for one) or something even “spookier”.
    Here is Gossamer:
