I know Grand Max is big but considering I had my LG Fort Max arrive from HLJ along with other Transformers that were released the same month in the same box as Fort Max I see no reason TLTC should be splitting up orders in seperate boxes for a domestic delivery.

Also how is it that one of the boxes got to the local DC this morning but the other one won't be here till Friday. Australia Post is just great isn't it!

It might have something to do with the cubic weight (overall dimensions of the box.)
HLJ (and other international stores) can send big boxes because their shipping cost is generally based on dead weight, not cubic weight. But sending a big box inside Australia is expensive because Aus Post calculates the postage price based on either dead weight, or cubic weight - whichever is the greatest.

I don't know for sure if that's the actual reason TLTC split the shipment or not though. Just a theory.

After 13 years my Chewbacca Transformer finally succumbed to GPS.

And that's why I never play with my GPS figures and move them very carefully.
