Rice Crispies: the ultimate packing filler?

Well, my ebay purchase has arrived - a big whack of Old Glory Marian Romans from a TMPer in the US.  Nothing appears to be broken, and not too much is bent; the shipping was fast (and the cost very reasonable); and as an added bonus I now have enough rice crispies to open a breakfast bar!

So now it's time for the clean up.  I guess a toothpick to get rid of the wedged crispies, an old brush to swipe of the surface dust and a bit of huffing and puffing for the rest will be a good start?


  1. I had the same - ordered some painted ancient 15mm figures form the US. They cam packed in rice puffs, rather than rice crispies. Not as much cleanup as they were less dusty but still had to poke out the wedged in bits. But a great packing material - no damage to anything.

  2. Yes, no damage at all, and I'm grateful for it. After a less than optimum experience with some painted minis shipped from the UK a few years ago, I can happily report that rice crispies are a considerable improvement on shredded newspaper!
