Joseph A. in Heidesheim, Germany, reports that The Box vanished into the black hole of customs again!

As expected, the package arrived while I was away on vacation...

Add to that, DHL was not able to get the package past the German Zoll (Customs) as the miniatures are packaged in a "transistor-parts" box and apparently they are individually ackaged in "transistor part sub-boxes"? (The description comes from the DHL operator I talked to on Wednesday when I checked my answering machine from ADW, so it sounds a bit garbled.) The DHL were willing to try and get the Zoll to release the package as it is, but it is more likely that I'll have to go and clear things up as the folks at the Zoll are waiting for a "payment form" and don't appear to be willing to "re-open" the package to check that there are in fact miniatures in the box and not the transistor parts...

Joe was eventually able to get The Box onto the next recipient, and sent along the pictures of the mini he included.

The Box is now on its way to Scott M. in Hemel Hempstead, UK...
