I found out about Modernist Pantry via the latest Cooking Issues radio episode, they had arranged a promo for a free sample of Activa RM (meat glue) for the listeners of the radio show, and that was all it took for me to open up my web browser. However, I had little hope that they would ship internationally, but they do. Oh dear, I had suddenly turned in to a kid in a candy store!
I managed to restrain myself and only place an order for a few items (however if the shipping is swift, I might go a little crazy, sorry in advance to my credit card). On order I have some Agar (gelling), Calcium Lactate, Sodium Citrate, Sodium Alginate, Xanthan Gum (reverse spherification), and Activa RM. The shipping is very reasonable at $14 (US), and the prices aren't too bad either, I have seen these products available in New Zealand but are usually overpriced.
The offer is good for the rest of the week, but you'll have to listen to the show yourself for the promo code.
