Default W: Kinder surprise capsules

Okay, I have no clue what this sort of thing would cost or shipping would entail, but since I'm in the United States, I can't get to these things because they are apparently illegal. I'm hoping some of you might just be throwing them away and I'd like to snag a few.

I want to keep the cost low if possible, I have some spare Tau Bits (mostly Kroot and FW). I don't want the chocolate or the toy inside, just the plastic egg. I'm looking for six-seven of the smaller ones and a couple of the larger ones.


Any advice for alternatives will be likewise appreciated.

Just as an FYI, I believe this is because American food law/health and safety states that you may not sell food items where inedible things are placed inside the food itself. Because the capsule, and the toy inside it, are sold inside the chocolate "egg", they fall under this description.

Thats ridiculous. No one alive is dumb enough to eat the egg inside. They're hard enough to get open and big enough to notice.

I have an Ethereal I'm not using, but the Ethereal has a slightly broken back pack thing (one weather vane looking piece off).

Would that be worth the six or so?

In America, there is always somebody stupid enough to do something.

I could get you kinder eggs, they're way cheap and they're sold at every supermarket and gas station here in Germany.

In America, there is always somebody willing to sue someone else for such stupidity.

What sort of thing would you be looking to receive in turn USAFTACP?

I have a Kroot Ox, the aforementioned Ethereal, and some various bits.
