That is what the pledge manager is showing. I thought Dark Souls was outrageous.

Yeah I was going to get a couple of bigger expansions, but I think I'll only get one now.

That does seem to be higher than they said it would be. Disappointed.

I'm actually very surprised though because the Conan King Pledge was huge but the shipping was much lower. I remember that there was a lot of hullabaloo around that one too because initially they had a much higher shipping. I'm hoping the same situation is the case here.

There's no update yet but in the KS comments the "voice of olympus" comments on their justification for the shipping costs, and how it compares to Conan. It seems it is just a heavy game w/ all that plastic. I'm a little disappointed in the cost but went ahead and paid it anyway. Glad I decided not to get any of the add-ons though as it seems shipping on those is hitting the $100 mark.

I just received Gloomhaven, a massive 22.7 pounds, kickstarted game that cost me $79 total (game and shipping). So we're being taken for a ride by any company that charges this much. Maybe they should contact the creator of that game to see how he did it.

$125 for the Typhon level in Canada. This is unacceptable.

For comparison I paid $36 for shipping to the same address for Conan with all add ons. $37 for just the base game is unacceptable.

Maybe if Monolith throws away the plastic. Shipping costs are based on size and other stuff besides weight. Here's Stonemaier Game's take on it: http://stonemaiergames.com/how-to-provide-free-shipping-worl...

That being said, shipping rates *are* increasing. I remember it going up twice in the last year. I think CMON's went up to $25 across the coast, and that's more than I paid for their previous CMON KS.

KS is still not a store -- particularly a brick and mortar, where I don't have to pay for shipping!

for germany the base pledge only would be 37$ too.
A bit hefty, however nothing that's really surprising as the estimate put on the shipping info was $25-$35 - which is actually close enough as early estimates go.

Seems unacceptable, I am going to see if they do something about it.

This is what Amazon has done - made people believe that shipping is free.

Have you shipped a package yourself lately? Shipping costs are rising, a lot.

I think I paid around $100 for shipping for my Cthulhu Wars Onslaught Two pledge.

It sucks, but it is what it is. How do you think they are going to lower costs - by getting the Shipping Fairies to deliver all that plastic to your door?

Base pledge shipping is 40$ to Italy. That's way too much.

The indications during the campaign was 20-30. 37 is outrageous. I still confirmed my pledge (it was a birthday present from my wife, so I'm not going to cancel it on a whim), but unless something changes between now and the actual shipping date this is going to be my very last Monolith purchase.

No one is saying they expected it for free. They are saying they're shocked at how much more than the estimates it is. I expected a similar price to Conan, which was $42 for me but this is $95. They used Conan as a reference point so it being double is quite the unwelcome surprise.

125USD to Canada for the all-in...

more than 150$ Canadian? If it was an individual doing the shipping, sure...but business rates ought to be much less than that.

Or they are passing some costs onto us that they didn't expect.

I came here to post the same thing. $37 for shipping is absurd. Very disappointed.
