How sad...he looks like a vintage one too.

two of them broke? What did the box look like? Does Munktiki send you new ones and the post office (UPS) pays the damages? It looks like just the tops are broke, but there does seem to be a lot of broke pieces. Instead of throwing them away, they look like you could still get some use some how.

Time Out is handling it (not Munktiki) and has promised me new ones. I have to hold these for UPS so they can "view the damage." I wouldn't say they were packed "badly"...I got 4 of the Hukilau glasses in the same box and they were fine. The mugs were on the very bottom of the box with maybe one layer of packing peanuts (which obviously was not enough). The important thing is that Time Out is handling it the best way they can and I'll eventually have new mugs.

Ouch - easy does it UPS..Make that an edition of 298.......

Now I am worried as i haven't gotten my mug yet and it appears that they have a weak spot at the top. Easily broken in transit.

Don't start worrying yet. Mine just arrived yesterday and they were in one piece. I was a little concerned though when I started unpacking and realized the mugs were on the bottom.

I opened the front door this morning (Note the date) and found this box. When I picked it up I could hear trouble. Note the under sized box and no packing around the edges. Well at least it was not Dental or something else rare.

what if it was only a penny cause they shipped out a broken mug. Probably not the cause but the rating history would be able to tell you more.

Nevermind, look how the bowl butts up against the box's edge. It was a suicide mission.

When I've had the good fortune to win an eBay item at a crazy low price, I've told the seller that my winning price was too low, and that I'd send them my max bid after I receive the item and find it to be in good condition. Each time the seller was happy, and I received the item intact and well packed. It's easy to drop $5 or so in an envelope and send it back to them. Cheap insurance to get a mug in one piece.

Although I barely made the trip home in one piece from The Hukilau, these mugs didn't:

OK this is a small thing but worth adding here. Over the week end i ordered a couple of tiki farm shots from www.stuff-o-rama.com They shipped as fast as anyone i have seen. When the package arrived I opened it to find one of the mugs chipped. I email Stuff-O-Rama about the damaged item. The next day I received a shipment notice that a replacement was on the way. WOW just like that is is being replaced. This is a wonderful seller and I hope everyone takes a look and supports them.
