1) $25 per item plus item cost due before the con
2) you pay shipping cost

But the item I want is only $10 or its a small item. I don't care keeping it simple $25 per a item

If I cannot get the item you will be refunded
Any other questions let me know
Are you out of your mind? Ridiculous. You just don't get the meaning of muling for the forum members do you.
Might as well just call it selling than muling :roll:

As someone who has hired mules for several years, this is actually a fairly decent deal. You're asking someone to spend their time and energy at the con so that you can get a TOY!. $25 is a good price. But hey, if you want to do it for free please let me know

Have you ever been to a major con like sdcc and try to buy stuff for yourself? If you haven't please stop talking. The lines and people are insane. If you do not have an exhibitor badge to get on the floor early you are completely screwed on preview night with certain companies. Hasbro's line is usually filled before the general public get in. If I went this year an exhibitor badge would of cost $250. Then I would of had to purchase a regular badge for preview night and thursday for the places that do not let dealers buy until sunday.
Good deals with: djtomain, meanmistert, RaiderinNY, Bender, 3Acollector, civ743, dieselbouy, unkle77, tedmcintyre, tattooed jester, syx, rosstamicahdesign, zombiekittens, jaysapathy, A2G, misterbear04, DirtyDiva, swish41,AlexandreLeblanc Quest_Ion and many more

and not to mention if you dont like his muling rules then you dont have to bash them ...people spend tons of money just to get into this place and spend a lot of time just trying to find one thing ...if they are able to grab something super limited or sought after then i think $25 is a really fair deal for them being able to get that specific item ...if anyone is looking for stuff with huge run numbers just wait for the exclusives to be put up on the designated websites

I'm sure a lot of appreciate that, and I have a lot of respect for you Half. But I don't think anyone looking for a mule, should EXPECT someone to do it for free. If it turns out that way great, but I would certainly never ask anyone to take time out of what should be a vacation (Unless they're signing or a vendor) to buy something for me.

If it were a friend, or if I had muled in years past (which I haven't) I may feel differently. But you are providing a service to me, and what I always ask myself before finding a mule is "How much extra is what I want worth?". I prefer to trade for muling services but that's just me.

This edition of 125 pieces* will be available for $135 each (sales tax included), limit one per customer/household and available only at Squibbles Ink + Rotofugi Booth #5248. Fifteen pieces will be available per day, first come first served for each day of the convention, including preview night.
Looks like this just got a hell of a lot harder

I've muled for years, and if someone is asking for a $25 "fee" up front, they're flipping. Don't get me wrong. Muling is hard work and shouldn't be done for free, but the proper courtesy is to leave the tip open-ended. Ironically, you'll make more money that way. You'd be surprised how generous people are when you give them the opportunity. The few who tip poorly will be made up for (and then some) by the generous ones. And you'll have a little extra money to pay your costs without looking like a twat. :D

I was considering doing a fee per item this year but I decided not too. I can understand why this member is doing it. I've muled items like a dunny and got a 30 dollar tip while I would go to 3 booths drop 300 dollars for somebody and get 20 bucks. Yes this happen last year. I tell my people to tip what you think is best. And just hope they tip well. And if you don't like his method then you don't need to use him.

Yes u r wrong lol. The funko line gets capped really quickly. I have a feeling it'll be even worse this year.
Amazing, I hate funko but love Hannibal. Never mind then, really isn't worth it to me :D thanks for the info

Yes and this year Funko and Toy tokyo may be combining booths. So i agree that itll be outta hand super fast this year.

http://Www.geminicollectibles.com and http://Www.fugitivetoys.com will have the sdcc funko exclusives on their sites!

Also, Im sorry if the links arent allowed. Just kindly tell me and I will remove.

Honestly for you guys seeking mules it's just better to just buy it on eBay or Amazon. There's no hassle for you and no arguing over "you're a flipper this" or "you're a flipper that". For people looking for the Red Squadt try finding someone that will camp out and fall in line within minutes of the convention floor opening for free espcially with an allocation of 15 pieces a day.
