The vendor Valentino has contacted asked me to post the T&C's for the group buy. I have left off the pricing. You can get that from Valentino via PM. He will also give you the email address of the vendor, so you can arrange payment, discuss what you want, etc.
This is from the Vendor with 2 comments from me:

Payment accepted - VISA, MC, DISCOVER, Paypal (Subject to 3% paypal charge)

LCL options are available for an additional charge. (FYI from surlynkid - LCL is less than cargo load meaning you pay more for personalized and faster delivery)
SHIPPING COSTS & CONDITIONS - The prices provided below, represent the landed costs to our warehouse in Santa Fe Springs, CA. Shipping to each member will be additional, and is contingent on location. I will need the exact shipping address of each buyer in order to provide an accurate quote for shipping. Please keep in mind that it is always cheaper top ship to a business address as opposed to a residential address. All prices presented below are inclusive of import duties and taxes to the US.

ORDER DEADLINES - We must receive your orders by the end of this month in order to make the container deadlines
