    Good luck!
    But I doubt you could sell it for $140... The most rare and expensive of the booted glamour cats is the golden one, and even he doesn't fetch over $100.

    thank you for the info. well, I paid indecent custom fees for it and just trying to recoup the money. in that case, I'll just keep it.
    one question for you, please: I noticed in some photos (including yours, I think) that the head is rotating. I tried that without success.

    No problem. Yeah, I know the feeling – after paying a lot for shipping and custom fees, the total price of the toy goes waaaay up for non-US collectors. And after that, selling it for that price turns to be an impossible task :(

    Regarding the head – yeah, it is rotating. Apply some force, and it will rotate. You can also may try to hold the toy in hot water for a few minutes – it will soften the vinyl, and it will be easier to rotate the head.

    thanks a lot for the tip. I was afraid to force it, for 2 good reasons: one- to not ruin/damage it and two- well, judging by its scary appearance, what if it fights back? :-D

    Yeah, this cat is fierce-looking :D
    Actually, most people who don't know this toy's name, think it's a dog :)

    yep, that's the reason I think hard these days before buying a toy - unless it's a cheap mini - if I *really* want it and if I think I'm going to keep it my collection, becasue shipping fees make it about 50% more expensive then original price.

    regardless of price, I get kind of attached to my toys and don't like the idea of selling :)

    Shipping for me is always about 30-50% of the price, its a real shame :(

    I also don't sell anything..... Yet I do have a few boxes packed away full of figures.

    I'm in Israel, and for me I find the best prices come from Hong-Kong. second is UK, and the US is the most expensive shipping...

    Here are some shipping secrets I've gained since I started collecting ;)

    The shipping price chart goes as following:
    1. China / Honk Kong – lowest shipping prices. Very reliable.
    2. Japan – pretty low shipping prices, even EMS (Express Mail) , which is VERY expensive in all other countries. SAL is even cheaper than EMS, but no tracking is available.
    3. UK – very decent prices.
    4. USA – for small items USPS First-Class Mail Int'l is a perfect solution (very cheap, and fast, but no tracking). For heavier (more than 4 lbs.), larger packages ask for USPS Priority Int'l (more expensive, same shipping times, has tracking). Don't bother with USPS Express.
    5. Germany – relatively decent prices.
    6. Singapore – relatively decent prices.
    7. France / Netherlands / Spain – very expensive.

    Regarding new Musgrove toy – I totally agree with you, Scott should make some new toy! His sculpts are amazing!

    Cheers for the list vadimt!! I used to get everything shipped through work as we had a courier set-up in Japan/US/HK and now that I no longer work there, I am a bit lost with shipment costs.
