    Just got an email from Hobby Link Japan informing me that they have lots of Transformers for up to 75% off.Just had a quick look and theres lots of different lines on sale from device label, Animated and the movie. The animated is what interested me the most with lots of the deluxe figs going for less than i paid for them in the uk :) 

    heres the link to the sale page
    Tremendous Savings on Transformers!

    The sales on till March 24th so you might want to get in quick

    But... uh... won't the cost of importing offset the discount? How much do they charge to ship a Deluxe?

    Can anyone comment on the shipping costs? I tried to go through the process of "checking out" to see the cost, but they don't tell you what they are. If you go to the FAQ page, the first question is about shipping costs and there isn't much help either. They just say, "rest assured that we will use the most cost efficient shipping possible". That just doesn't cut it for me. A guestimate would be nice at least.

    still would most likely end up cheaper a deluxe was around £20 ($30-35) in the uk and voyagers where upto £40 ($60ish) in some places so even with shipping prices work out either cheaper or pretty much the same.

    The shipping quotes for the various shipment methods for each figure are right next to each price listing.

    I suppose it's a good time to get Jetpack Bee. Since it's only 15.00$

    Wish I knew you Doc, I just made an order. We could of combined our orders!!! But yeah they're top notch, and I go the el-cheapo route on shipping. Picked up the Deep Dive BB and Device Label Blaster! Score.

    ^ Care to comment on your shipping? I realize it's posted next to the item but I'm wondering about the accuracy. Their shipping cost for a small set of ball joints ($15.77) is the same as the shipping cost for a Hydro BB ($15.77) which seems a little screwy. Thanx!

    EDIT: I wonder of that gold paint will come off of BB?:)

    Nabbed an Orochi Thundercracker. Been meaning to, but was hoping to get one at Botcon for a discount or something. This worked out pretty nicely. :)

    I haven't gotten my quote yet, but my quote for the cheap route was $10 for BB alone. I'll keep you guys posted.

    Pretty hard to say 'no' to what they're charging for Device Label Blaster. Picked one up along with a Lugnut :D
