    First BBTS, then Digital Toys. Other US based online toy stores to follow suit soon?

    What the hell?
    What's the big deal about this? It's an oversized gun that will be packaged as a robot! Who cares? I dont understand why everyone is so upset by this when the reissue Megatron came through without a problem and he was packaged in gun mode. I ordered mine from the mail, from the US without problem or delay.

    Hmm...I wonder who's next.

    I put off preodering from BBTS for this reason. If Digital Toys does it also, it won't surprise me if other online shops do it too.

    I maintain that I will NOT be selling this product in any way modified. What I sell will be what Takara produces. I have already spoken to my own suppliers, and they have stated that even if they choose to do this themselves as they also sell to many in the US, they do not have any problem sending me unaltered ones instead.

    I'm sorry, I thought it was posted that it would be in robot mode, after all havent the other MP figures been packed in bot mode? I've seen images of MP-04 in package in bot mode.

    If it is in bot mode, then I think these companies arent trying to prevent your toy from getting stopped at customs, they are just trying to cover their own ass from legal trouble since blah blah blah its against the law to supply toy guns without safety tips, blah blah blah. Yeah, I know it's a law, a stupid law none the less.
    A bot mode toy would reach you, but if someone complains the provider would still be liable for law breaking? I dont know, just speculating.

    I think you're more-or-less accurate; by being a grey area (a collectible priced out of the range of kids, oversized, probably even packed as a robot) the only way customs would be forced to act is if someone complains.

    This could get slightly ugly, because stores making modifications have a vested interest in theirs being the main supply route -- BBTS are a pleasant group of guys, but others might not be.

    Sidecutter, do you charge a custormer's credit card immediately or not until the product is shipped out?
