UPDATE 3/17: I've sent out PMs to everyone for the amount you need to send to balance your account. I've gone ahead and paid for the shipping out of my own pocket so they can send the order ahead immediately, but I'm still counting on everyone to pay their portion of the shipping cost.

UPDATE 3/16: THE WAREHOUSE IS READY TO SHIP! :D I have sent out PMs requesting your shipping info, so please reply to those asap. I will be doing some calculations very soon and dividing up the shipping cost from China between everyone's orders based on estimates of your order's weight. I will be PMing everyone with those new totals soon.

UPDATE 3/1: THE ORDER HAS BEEN PLACED! :D I'll be waiting to hear back from taobaonow.com when everything arrives at their warehouse. At that point I will be given an amount to pay for shipping from their warehouse to me. Now that everyone has paid, I have changed my currency conversion in my spreadsheet from ¥0.18=$1 to ¥0.177=$1. For some of you, that means you have overpaid slightly, and the excess will go toward your portion of that shipping cost from China (which I will calculate based on the weight of your total order). For others, you still show as having underpaid slightly (sometimes by a few cents, sometimes by around $1 or so). This may be due to paypal fees, or because your final total was altered when other people changed their order or withdrew altogether. This shortfall will be included when I send you a total for your final shipping costs. Luckily, the excess payment outweighs the payment shortfalls enough so that I have about $38 extra that I can put toward that final shipping from China.

UPDATE 2/22: Totals have been sent to everyone who was on the list, and payment is due 2/28! DO NOT FORGET: The total you have received does NOT include final shipping costs, so be prepared to pay that when the time comes. If you have paid and do not see yourself listed here as having paid within a day or two, your payment may not have gone through for some reason. Please double check and make sure there are no typos in the paypal address you entered.

UPDATE 2/19: I'm going to give the topic til Saturday. I'll be updating price estimates and totaling orders. On Saturday, I'll PM everyone on the list with their totals, and you will have until next Saturday the 28th to send payment for your order. Please take this week to make sure that you will have enough money for your order, and to ensure that you're going to want to get everything you're listed for. The final prices on all items are heavily influenced by the number of people sharing the cost, so please try not to be wishy-washy in your decision!

UPDATE: I bolded the items with the most interest, and so far with what we have (at least with items where multiples would be ordered), there's enough to reach the ¥50 minimum service fee on http://taobaonow.com/. Atm this bulk order would be dependent on me ordering a bunch of stuff I intend to get for baits, but  I won't be able to do it for another week or two at least. And then the Chinese websites will be relatively inactive for the Chinese New Year, so if we make a bulk order it won't be until the beginning of March, most likely.

So until then, feel free to shop around and add anything you definitely want to get, and post links to things you think a lot of other people might be interested in. And please, if you plan on ordering, plan ahead and set aside the funds for this, and don't forget to calculate final shipping costs. I will try to create estimates on the cost of individual items after shipping and fees, once we compile longer lists.

Cool, added to list. I'm going to add to the list usernames of people interested in ordering stuff, so I added you under Applejack. I also put the price in ¥ and what that approximately converts to in $US. If anyone finds listings at lower prices, post them.

6 G4zillas (¥140 or ~$23US)
If I'm reading that listing right, it looks like the ¥140 price is for a set of six Fashion Style fakies. The option for the six Styling Sizes is ¥212, or ~$34.

Thanks, I wasn't sure about that. It's really hard to tell with some of these. That's still a good price tho.

I've had my fill of the fakies you list, but there are some others I might be interested in but haven't been able to get on eBay:
Glitter-internal painted-hair blind bags in green and orange
More giant fillies including one with glasses
G4-G3.5 hybrids

I'll add yours to. The internal glitter ones I'd probably be interested in too since they have the Shining Armor mold with them.

That's perfect for me. I just need them for customs. It's too expensive getting specific characters I want, opened and in good condition anyway.

I'd be interested in Octavia.

For those of you who want AJ and DD, the price isn't much higher than they are here in Canada.  Once you factor in shipping from the States instead of Canadian shipping prices, it probably works out to be pretty close.  I've been trying to find extras for people here, but I've had no luck.  Two wild encounters of one each, and then nothing, and I've been looking everywhere!

Put you down for Octavia.

Yeah it's not a great price. Like I said, I'm hoping we'll find a cheaper listing - better yet, one of her loose. I haven't seen her anywhere yet though.
