You can start a Want To Sell thread in the BST section, but yeah you should have the item in hand before you do that.  You can read through the BST rules.

As far as shipping address are concerned, I know you can't change addresses once you've reached the Paypal stage of the checkout process.  And 3A CS won't transfer orders to third parties.  I think the only address changes they'll make is if you are moving.  So all of your outstanding orders would have to go to your single new address I'm assuming.

As far as entering a new address other than your own during check out process, I'd have to defer that to someone who's gone through that experience or perhaps you should shoot an email to 3A CS.

Yeah, it's no problem to enter a name/address other than yours in the shipping details during checkout on bambaland. Just can't do it after the order is placed.

Not sure how many people would want to pay someone to buy something that won't arrive for 9-12 months just to save 15%. Also, the fact that the account holder can just email CS and cancel the order doesn't make it a very safe transaction for potential buyers.

While you can do it, it takes a HECK of alot of trust. I usually only do it for legit friends

Wait six months.  It finally ships.  Just in time for a postal strike (starting Monday).  Nice timing, Canada Post.

Fucking unions are obsolete dinosaurs that should have died off in the 20th century.  They made sense back when there were no labor laws protecting workers rights.

Sorry to hear about that, read about it in our local news...but really misleading info there.

Why are they striking? If you have a moment, would love to have real Canadian views on this.

The main two issues as I understand it is that Canada Post wants to change the pension plans for workers to reduce costs (I don't know the specifics) and the fact that rural postal workers are paid on average about 30% less than their urban counterparts.  The latest news is that the postal workers union has rejected an offer of binding arbitration to prevent the work stoppage.

don't despair ! friend, they said this morning on the news The union send a 30 days reflexion time to the ''patrona'', so I don't think there will be a lock out monday. (its not a strile its a lock out, lock out is when the Boss close the place forcing the worker out.) Wink

p.s, when it come to 3aa member ship its always DHL whos delivering it , don't know why.

Canada Post has not yet agreed to the 30-day extension (but I hope they do).

I don't recall who exactly delivered my membership packages in previous years.  Might have been DHL.  If so, great!  However, I still have other parcels that are supposed to ship later this month that will be delayed if the lockout happens.

The union and Canada Post have been in talks for over six months now and have failed to reach an agreement, so I'm not too optimistic.

I think I have only ever received one package from ThreeA via DHL and it wasn't any of the membership packs. Although DHL is usually quick service they always end up charging you an import fee. However, ThreeZero do tend to use DHL service which I don't like.

Looks like the lockout will likely go ahead starting Monday...

Anyway, didn't mean to hijack this thread with talk of labor disputes.

Besides, I'm used to waiting for stuff.  ThreeA has trained me well.

Landed this morning in N.Ireland.

Very disappointing in hand. The coat is flimsy and cheap, the tanks attachment is rotten - move his arm and the tanks either fall off or sit at a highly unrealistic angle. Very surprised it passed AW's standards.

Colouring on the belts was fine tho for those that were worried.

Would be an instant sell but for the fact the market will be flooded.

A real shame and the most disappointing 3AA in years. Sorry, wish I could say otherwise.

von inhand and christ the tank design is a nightmare in functionality. just epic failure the way those tanks attach, they drag down back of coat and hang at this odd angle. looks like if they were attached sideways it would have been better cuz they naturally want to do that. seems so amateur and such a obvious oversight. phoned in couldn't care less etc

dig the full over head gasmask for a change, goes down lower on neck and no hair to show out back cuz mask has back part to it. helmet like mask with another helmet on top. the actual helmet is a odd shape, seems to get wider as it goes up and is flat on top but is def unique in design compared to other nom helms.

dig the outfit, coat is cool and the clothes arent so heavily weathered, look very military command clean and they fit nice(sans tanks dragging coat). as i mentioned before i like the under flak vest thing, sparks imagination as to why this nom has one under his coat and others seem fine rockin a tee.

paint work is clean, no bleeds i see. i guess them hoses are metal cuz they are rusted like helm and mask. the straps hanging down on either side of helm is odd both have the metal loop on end. the mask, tanks, helm and hoses have that cool metal sheen seen on the DD's paint. combined with the shine of the pleather coat it is striking. does add to that over military command feel he has, he looks far more that way than say the nom comms.

bod quality seems good no loose joints i have discovered yet.

so in all inahnd it would be impressive if it wasnt for the absolute failure that is the tank attachments. cuz that really dictates the look of the figure overall, it messes with rest of appearance/outfit dragging down back of coat, its that glaring and detracts soooooooooooo much. shame cuz here i am sick of plume lookin figs impressed with this one surprisingly but due to threeA's poor execution of design its a buzzkill. just why? why threeA why? so obvious.

am i glad i have this? yes i think so, that ominous military command look is dope and was needed in my WWR collect. but again it could be 1000x better with a simple re-design of the tanks attachment.

would like to close up coat like in art but seems impossible, gotta remove the flak like vest and waist pouches i imagine. yeah?

Speakin' of flak vests, where are the flakkin' pictures, man!!! What a Face
I always though it was flap instead of flak. How did I get that wrong? Well, I guess there is such a thing as a flap jacket.

the trick via someone on FB for a easy tank fix is using a twisty tie to loop together the tank hooks after they have gone thru loops on coat to keep them from being pulled outwards. tanks still hang but not at odd angle.

took some pics but camera dead will get batteries. looks awesome with fist in the air "my very shitty nine!" pose like art.

Twist-tie was my idea in the Von De Plume thread...

I modified the idea a couple of days later by using the ends of the twist tie as a kind of brace against his back so the tanks were a little more vertical.
