Yes it would cost around what the item sold for just for postage and shipping materials and the $1.79 Lego Dinension sets were even more of a loss for them. I posted last week that those prices seemed too low but they I trust them after I got the other item from them so quickly.
Yep, arrived in a box. Even shipped with tracking.
The cardboard backing was slightly creased on the corner, but that is absolutely fine
I'm going to have to remember to keep an eye on ebay for future sales from their company, Gamer Candy.
