Pentax Coffee Mug

Hi all,
I saw a nice looking red Pentax coffee mug at the Pentax Webstore for about $14. I'd like one, but they don't ship to Australia.
Are there any enterprising chaps there in the US and A who would like to order and ship one to me?

The problem with shipping to Australia even by post say from Toronto to NSW for said item requires at the very least $100CAD/USD so unless you know of someone visiting it's just too expensive to ship a $14USD item.

just saying.

You can probably order some nice custom made pentax stickers or something and put them on a far better mug.. I know I have 6 travel mugs here already, sure don't need more, I would just decal my favorite one. Hmmm a project, I'll post a pic when I'm done!

Maybe look at something like - How it Works

I was going to use them, but since I'm so close to the border there are some decent brick and mortar alternatives that are a short drive away from me. They look interesting though.

Pentax lenses are still being used as lenses, but how about one of the alternate brands.

Otis says he will gladly ship you a dozen of them if you will accept a squirrel in each one, and guarantee a big fancy meal on arrival?

Note: I wouldn't do it, and won't be responsible if you do. You don't know trouble until you know Otis and his Army of Squirrels!

$12 - That's rip off! Got one for my son-in-law for $5 at Castle Towers in Sydney just after Christmas. My grand daughter (7) recognised it as "just like Dad's" lens. There is no doubt that kids take in all the detail!

You can get Pentax baseball caps at Cafepress (not the best selection or designs). That's where I got my black one with red letters. Although, I don't see that one there anymore.

Come on now, I know those squirrels are crafty little buggers, but they've got our Customs Officers to contend with.
A mate of mine is into 3D printing, that is, he's a bit of a designer and knows how to knock up a 3D design for printing. I might enlist his services to get a one-off made.
