    I don't know why I want in on this awesome figure. It's not that different than its American counterpart, however it's awesome enough for me to want one.

    The thing is, Robotkingdom is accepting pre-orders for $16.00 but what's their shipping charge for just standard mail? Anyone know?

    You can get your shipping quote for Robotkingdom by going to the checkout, after you enter your phone number and country the next page you get your shipping cost.

    Yeah I thought RobotKingdom would be a good deal until I saw the shipping.

    Among the best. If you want 100% mint packaging, this is not the first place you should look, but otherwise they are an excellent resource. Being in Japan, shipping's slightly higher than from a local source, but they're AT the source of Japanese toys, and thus the original cost is less. The simple way of looking at it, using BBTS as an example, is that you might pay around $25 for Starscream shipped from Hobby Link Japan using their slower shipping method, whereas BBTS's cost will be that much before shipping from them to you.

    EDIT: Just to avoid any misunderstanding, I know nothing myself about Robotkingdom, good or bad, except for the "not in the States" bit.

    i thought robotkindom had comprable shipping prices. you have to remember they arent in the US, so of course their shipping going to be higher. I have nothing but good things to say about robotkingdom.

    There shipping is good for a company based in asia. Many companies in asia have high shipping cost. I'm going to use them in the future instead of BBTS. For me to get a MP-04 from BBTS it was going to cost $80 postage, from TFsource $70 but its only $50 from Robotkingdom.

    I know, I'm not trying to slam Robotkingdom, they have great deals. Just the overseas part that hurts my wallet.
