    Cool- thank you, Robert! I'm just nervous because the thing I have coming is soft vinyl but covered in long spikes, which could get a little brittle in the ice-cold hold of a FedEx plane, and then not be able to withstand a hard bump or (I shouldn't even say it) a partial crush. I think I will take my chances... here's hoping!

    I forgot to mention that my last package from Buyee came via FedEx. About 1,300 yen cheaper than DHL, took a couple of days longer but I was okay with that. Buyee threw everything into a big paper envelope which I was totally fine with.

    I have got to convince Buyee to repack items. This box is ridiculous.

    We need to see the contents to understand the ridiculousness.

    @blakewest, when you add "protective packaging" they theoretically unbox all of your stuff and bubble wrap it. They then discard any extra packaging / boxes. Should downsize your shipping box and cost.

    Scene from 10 minutes ago. Granted, he's a smaller cat, but he's standing. I forgot to choose/pay up for the protective packaging, as has been recommended.

    Buyee has packed 2 books, 2 Amapro-size figures, a Popy and a Bullmark mini repro in this thing. The Fedex person was maybe psychologically responsive to the size, too, as they couldn't carry it down the sidewalk and gave up in the driveway.

    My buyee order shipped on April 4th and arrived today! (2 days)
    The FedEx option is definitely a game changer in terms of price and time.

    Again, add "protective packaging" and they'll remove any boxes and just wrap the contents individually with bubble wrap.
    Downsized the box to around a shoebox size. Cat and chairs for scale.

    Yeah, those packages come quick! Can confirm, adding protective packaging can bring down the size (and cost) of the parcel.
