    I have a preorder with BBTS. Not sure who has the best price. Have you searched all the vendors?

    Amiami.com has pre-orders up at 11,000 Yen apiece. Shipping will probably be about 4-5000 Yen, which comes to about $180-190 USD total.

    If the shipping cost goes any higher than that, then you might not save that much compared to BBTS, especially if you use Pile of Loot.

    With new release figures that aren't part of assortment case, the pricing should be almost the same across retailers. I think you might end up saving more through shipping by choosing a retailer closer to you.

    amiami will not be cheap. Predaking is too large so it HAS to be EMS. If its EMS you are looking at 50-60$ shipping AT LEAST.

    Ebay:
    TFSource or BBTS will be your safest and cheapest bet.

    I went with TFsource a while back. Me and a friend placed one order for two, so we got a $20 discount. that brought our individual prices to $172 each, shipped.

    Cheapest? Well, I'm biased, but stateside, that'd be me I expect.

    So, speaking of this, I'm seriously considering canceling my pre-order. I have the previous reissue, plus an original Razorclaw and Tantrum.

    Someone tell me why I shouldn't cancel.

    That's pretty much where I've been landing as I think about it.

    I don't think that (plus some diecast) is worth another $180 to me. It looks snazzy, but enh. Especially since I just got 2010 Unicron, and 2010 Primus and Hot Toys War Machine are sitting in my Pile of Loot right now. Nevermind all the stuff hitting in December and January.

    i typically order takara stuff from alphaprimetoys.com. they offer a discount on preorders, and i can generally get stuff + shipping cheaper than retail on BBTS (w/o shipping). i've ordered a bunch of stuff there. they sometimes get their stuff a few weeks after BBTS and TFSource, but timing isn't an issue for me. plus i like to support the smaller guys.

    For example, Predaking for me is 174.99 after shipping at alphaprime. it's $185 from BBTS before shipping. i'll keeping my $20 and get it a couple weeks later. no biggie.
