Anyone willing to buy a $10 2.0 upgrade pack from the Megacon webstore and ship it to me in the UK for less than the $57 shipping they want to charge?

Drop me a message if you can help.

Check with MCG directly. They may still have some stock in Europe. The store is apparently only US stock.

So I probably didn't do the cheapest route but I took at look at UPS. I didn't know where you live in the UK so I just picked Edinburgh. For me to ship a .5 UPS envelope from Pennsylvania costs 52 GBP or about $80. If there's a cheaper way let me know and I can start playing around with that but what I have currently is way more expensive than what MCG is charging.

A padded envelope via USPS was around US$60.

Try emailing again. Gen Con just happened and it's entirely possible it got lost in the insanity of pre-Con prep. Nikki is usually good about getting back to folks, but she does get a lot of mail.

I really don't get US post prices at all. Some US companies can ship me a heavy box for about $15-25 while others are charging $50-90 for envelopes. How does it work at all?

Assuming that US companies are charging only for postage (and not adding "handling fees" of some kind), it's pretty straightforward. You can calculate shipping on the US Postal Service Website, www.usps.com. Letters are cheapest, and small packages up to 4 pounds are in the next tier ("First Class International"). For anything over 4 pounds (or less, but want it to ship faster), there is Priority Mail International. The two highest tiers are Priority Mail Express and Global Express Guaranteed, and both definitely cost an arm and a leg.

The major problem is the that US Postal Service raised their international shipping rates in January, often by 100%. It's kind of crazy, actually, because the rate increases do not reflect the actual drop in oil and fuel prices worldwide.

In any event, if you are ever curious, I definitely recommend checking the USPS website. It's pretty easy to use for english speakers.

Their webstore is charging BS prices to everywhere. I looked at getting the 2.0 upgrade pack shipped to a US address and they still wanted $22. Umm. Just no. Even with a 'handling' fee attached, those shipping prices are ridiculous. It is not an international issue (although the internation prices are even more insane).

Megacon claims those rates will change once their distribution partner gets all the stock (which I thought already happened). Maybe there'll be some sort of announcement from Megacon once this distribution partner starts taking orders.

Kable is their partner for distribution.
