Just wondering if any place still has Takara Bulkhead at the $60 or less tag?
Got the last one BBTS had. TFSource is the only place I've seen recently that had it but not for 60, that will be very hard to find. If you even can really.
how much are you willing to pay for shipping?
If I walked into a toyrus in Japan,What would it cost?
I would do normal shipping ($12 or whatever). Nothing like $25.
Problem being that he's in California and you're in Jersey. Unless you were to go Parcel Post, then it'd be around the $12 mark. Priority however would be at LEAST $25.
No rush on my part if I get it in 2 days or a week, same thing.
Depending on how big the box is. If it's a box large enough for Bulkhead, but not TOO large so it's wasted space, you can probably send it cross-country for around $16-18.
I bought one from agesthreeandup.com for the $60 price and it was the Takara one, also bought it with Takara FE Cliff. They are all sold out now (not sure about cliff though, might want to check)...It hasn't shipped yet so I'm just waiting patiently..
also depending on where you buy it from. If you are not worried about the box and if the person is willing to do it you can have them ship it out of the box in ALT mode. That would save on shipping.
That's true, plus Bulkhead doesn't seem too heavy to me. Still, if there's one thing I've learned this past month it's that if anything I've sent to California had been sent Priority I was looking at an almost $40 pricetag JUST for the shipping.
40? Wow. And here I always feel 12 is high when I ship to cali (or zone 5 places). Pretty heavy items? I've used regional boxes before and sometimes the rates are pretty good.
You guys using USPS? I mean with USPS, you can get some stuff shipped cross country pretty cheap. No where close to $40.I got 4 MP figures from Cali for less then $40 shipped.
It's like no one uses flat rate boxes anymore. No way those cost 40$ or even 30 in the states.
I haven't been able to find a place on the internet that sells him for 60. I bought my Bulkhead for more than that.
I strictly use usps unless there is a request for ups. It's closer and I have superb service. The prices arent great but usually better than ups.
The regional boxes I've used a couple of times are flat rate. Unfortunately most of the stuff I ship is just a couple of lbs so its cheaper to ship regular priority or parcel post. First class is also a great option and pretty cheap compared to others.
The problem I ran into with flat rate is when I did have some stuff that weighed a bit more I found the boxes too small. I've managed to use the medium box a couple of times, however.
This thread eminds me that the one I got from BBTS this week came broken. I just got the UPS labels to ship him back
I almost always go medium, it's the best size really. First class within the U.S. really is about as fast as priority depending on the package and all. I've always liked it because you could get some form of tracking as well. It bums me out they closed so many processing centers, slowing it all down to where you can't anticipate packages arrival hardly now.
I was lucky enough to get the last one on ToyStrike.net for $59 shipped.
What happened to it? I just got mine and thought it was broken, but the arm just popped off and I was able to open and the package and pop his arm back on.
That is one good thing about the first class. I always ship it tracked. Depending on the weight of a particular deluxe I can usually ship a single deluxe for 6$ shipping. 4 something for first class (I dont remember the exact price for 13oz since they raised their price), 80$ dc, and 54$ for the box. The other thing I like is that it doesn't matter if its a state over or from ny to ca because its the same price either way.
