Hi~

I'm not really active with collecting Breyer, but I have a few and I wanted to share some awesome news with you all.
I owned "Earth", "Wind" and "Fire" for a really long time. Unfortunately in the Netherlands there was NO WAY to find Water and it just seemed like my collection would never be complete.
Most EBAY-USA sellers didn't want to ship to the Netherlands because of the costs and the risk of breaking the model. So, now it's about 4 years (??!!) later.

I'm a member of a Breyer - Facebook sellings group. Just hoping I would, some day, find Water and someone who was willing to ship it to me.
One day there was a person selling WATER. I couldn't believe my eyes and I directly asked the price and shipping to the Netherlands. She answered "I do not ship overseas because of the costs". My mood dropped from 100 to 0 in only a few seconds.
I told her I was going to pay the COMPLETE shipping and even wanted to pay some extra so it can be packed well, so it wouldn't break. She still said no ...
A few moments later though, she changed her thoughts and contacted me. I was finally able to buy him, even though it was a good amount of money, I REALLY wanted him to make my collection complete.

Today I got a notification that my package was delivered. We don't get it delivered at home here, so I picked it up as soon as I got home from work. When I grabbed the package I was kinda worried, because they opened it up to check it ... What if they didn't pack it good enough afterwards .. I know how bad they handle packages here.

Fortunately, the worries were for nothing. He's beautiful. No scuffs, marks or breaks.
So I can finally say, after YEARS, it's complete.

And I'm extremely proud.

Congratulations!! The complete Ethereal set can be very expensive and difficult to find, especially with the bases. Do you have their COAs too?

Yup, all but Earth unfortunately. That's also the only one with some rubs (that was the first one I got from the collection, I didn't knew that time it was a special edition with COA's)
