North Star just announced they are no longer shipping small orders to Canada and Australia because of lack of tracking of small packages and long delivery times because we (Canada) are sooo far away and remote (maybe they think we are on another planet, or are they??). Well, sucks to them; another place I don't have to order from anymore!

Bummer. North Star is a little weird to deal with; I'm in the U.S., and they send everything tracked so I have to go to the post office for pick up every time - unnecessary and annoying!

Still, their products are first rate and always worthwhile. And you can still order from other sources. Just google North Star models or search E-bay and you will get any number of alternative vendors from which you can get their stuff.

Ahh, if only that were true! I Googled North Star products, but nobody seems to carry everything; especially looking for their 54mm sci-fi figs, etc.
