I wont bore everyone with the details. I'm not relying on LEGO to find one pallet in a warehouse somewhere this year for a product that should have been made available here to begin with. I'm clearly bringing them in myself.
I'm happily disclosing that they are going to cost me roughly $40 per box to get them into the country. Obviously, I think I deserve something for the effort and connections, so I'm thinking $50.
I'm not looking to do any pre-orders or anything like that, I have no problems plunking down the cash to get them here. Just trying to get a pulse for the demand. If people waffle or flake out, no worries, I'll unload them on Bricklink.
