The S shape is always good advice though. The basic idea is that straight lines tend to look stiff.

Does the pledge with future bottle look like this now? I'm not sure which one to buy, they don't say 'with future' any more. Yet when I google, Walmart is selling this bottle advertising 'with future'
Speaking of, what the hell was the first person that used this thinking?
"Yeah the hips on my transformers are pretty loose, I should put some floor polish on it"
It's like the first person that smoked
"I'm going to take this plant, put it into a leaf, light it on fire and inhale it"

>>Marauder: Valkyries and co, there are several color changes, corrections and adjustments being made to the items.
>>change the hardness/softness on many of the items and correct the fit/function on several body parts & accessories. The good news is the vast majority of the parts & working features were correct. The bad news is some of the seemingly relatively minor issues with “fit/function” require NEW production tools. These new tools take some time to complete & test. Couple the new tool need with the factory requirement that the massive order be split into 2 (TWO) separate production runs and our revised end of August ship is now not possible.

does large SAL get taxed?

question to countries that actually get tax, like Canada and UK.
Does anyone have a lot of experience with large SAL packages? (not SAL "small package")
I think this is only from Japan. Typically SAL small package doesn't get taxed, and everything else does, but I'm under the impression that sometimes there are exceptions, like shipping methods that might not normally be taxed would if the value were high enough. Does anyone have experience with higher value packages, to know if there's any threshold? I know technically the legal tax-free amount is something like $20, but I've had SAL with higher amounts that hasn't been taxed. I'm just not sure if they get more scrutiny on non-"small package" SAL.
I'm looking to order from Mandarake, even though this picture is from HobbySearch. I think in the past Mandarake limited SAL to small package, because a few times my shipment was actually shipped in two separate boxes.

Hey guys, question; when you're making an offer on a figure on ebay, say it's $29.99, you offer 24, is that a reasonable offer? Especially when they have it listed as 'more than 10 available'? I also don't understand that when they counteroffer, it's for 28.99, what's the point of having the option to haggle when clearly they won't? I had another guy counter me with an offer 70cents less than the buy it now price.
Tldr; what are reasonable asking prices for making an offer on ebay?
