    I've never come across this site until today. I was browsing Craig's List and, quite by accident, found them listing a MP Voltron on there and followed the link. I don't purport to speak for them, but I thought I'd them a shout-out on here because they're obviously new and trying to grow and they have Classics for decent prices (didn't check the shipping, though). Check 'em out and let us know how they do!

    Ebay:
    I just did a mock order for 2 deluxe basics and shipping came out to be just under $11 for UPS Ground shipping. I guess that is reasonable, but I'm waiting to find them locally @ retail.

    Yeah, $11 for S&H isn't so bad. Now, we just need someone to field-test their service....Soon, I have no doubt they will be available locally everywhere, though, so, yeah, just wait.

    Tried a mock order as well - what the heck is a "Zone Rate"? That is, which difference does that make compared to UPS Ground aside from being cheaper?

    I ordered all of wave 1 from JRS and only paid $6.60 for flat rate shipping. $11 for 2 deluxes is way high considering they weight under 2 lbs shipped.

    Then again, they're small and just starting out, start-up costs?

    If I didn't have the Classics I already need/want, I'd check you out! Maybe on the upcoming Classics Jetfire! Come on, fellow fans, try 'em out, we could be seeing the birth of a great source for TF's here.

    And, no, I have no affiliation with this company in the slightest, it just looks like a worthwhile place to spend hard-earned money.

    My one suggestion for you, alphasource, is to perhaps get a feedback section on your site, maybe testimonials or the like. Or perhaps an e-bay ID if there is one. People like to see feedback! I know I do! Good luck!
