    Thank god for Robot Kingdom. Why does it cost me just $32 postage to get Omega Supreme here from Robot Kingdom but $90 from BBTS!? Get it together, BBTS.

    Speaking of Robot Kingdom... When I get their newsletter in my gmail, it doesn't show any of the text but if I click "fwd" or "reply" i can read it in the quoted part. Does that happen to anyone else or are my gmail settings fubar'd?

    I dunno, maybe it's because Hong Kong is nearer to Australia than Wisconsin?

    I just threw YOTS Omega in my cart, and their shipping page told me to Australia it would cost

    Air Mail 54.24
    USPS Express: 65.99
    UPS Air 67.99

    Where's the extra 20-30 bucks coming from?


    But no, lets have another round of 'Rarrrrgh BBTS are shipping gougers'.


    And i got news for you, Robotkingdom's shipping charges aren't necessarily that competitive either.

    Hrrm, seems I was a dolt and accidentally was checking the postage on the two pack for BBTS.

    Still, to get the two is $54 vs $90, its still a pretty significant difference. Probably won't pre order from either store for a while now though. I wasn't trying to start a BBTS vs Robot Kingdom debate though, I'm sorry if it was a troubling remark.

    Maybe not, but cost + shipping is always significantly cheaper from RK compared to BBTS at least for me.
