    So I'm looking into buying a PE Scouting force, and I was thinking about ordering it from Robotkingdom since it's cheaper, but I haven't been able to find their shipping rates on the site. So basically I was wondering if anybody could tell me what the shipping would be for Not-Reflector or Warbot Defender?

    Thanks in advance. :)

    Sub Total : $169.80
    Shipping Charge (United States) : $34.28
    Insurance : $
    Grand Total : US$ 204.08
    Delivery Method : Registered Air Mail Small Packet
    Payment Method : PayPal

    Thats for Both combined.

    $15.87 for Scouting Force
    $18.41 for Warbot.

    To see shipping charges click the Confirm check out your shopping cart? YES button, then on the next page type in where you are and click next.
    I know it implies that orders the item, but it doesnt.

    I usually just enter fake information in all the required locations except for the correct postal code.

    Okay thanks. Figure at that shipping I might as well go with BBTS so it can ship with the rest of my PoL.

    Yea, it is usually close to a wash once shipping is factored in and the POL system on most stuff (couple bucks here or there isn't that big of a deal for me), which is too bad because when I order from RK I am always happy. But the logistics of the whole thing just makes them a little less desirable for me. Last package was kicked around by the USPS for quite a while.

    not to bad mouth a distributer, but i would never buy from rk as long as bbts is around...

    i did get a confirmation but it took WEEKS to receive my KM annhialator...

    for a few extra bucks, bbts constantly updated your package via ups.

    rk ships through thier countrys post. which is miles behind ups...

    as long as your item is in stock, buy through bbts...

    It probably took WEEKS because you decided to get Air Mail shipping as opposed to EMS shipping. EMS shipping takes less than a week for items to be shipped from HK to the US. Yes, EMS is more expensive but you get what you pay for.

    I live in aus and RK always comes in cheaper than BBTS... Stray pre-orders I stick to BBTS POL but if I'm impulse buying like I just did then with PE reflector-frenzy/rumble-shadow demolitions-laser/buzzer and exgraver RK is my first choice.

    Quite a haul and shipping was $37 I think.... That's USD as well, after paypal currency conversion i ended up paying $20AU less than the USD listed total.

    I'm loving the AU-US exchange rate something fierce.

    I look at it this way..Take Engraver there..On BBTS he's 99+ shipping..so say, 115 or so. RK has it at 75$ and shipping is 20$ so you're still paying less than BBTS actual price. I use em both..but, I look at RK first.

    See if I didn't know any better, I'd report this thread to be moved into the TF Prime discussion.

    Being serious for a moment though, it still amazes me how people forget to include shipping costs in their mental tallys. I don't know if that's just a human incentive to make things easier to buy, but taking Carter's advice is never a bad move.

    I always use EMS with RK and I get my stuff very fast, usually 4-5 working days. They rock.

    Sorry to bring up a zombie thread, but I've got a question: I preordered a figure from then and bought a few other things as well. Do they wait and ship out all items at once, or do they ship what's in-stock now, then ship the preorder separate? I've never ordered from them until now.

    Anyone...?
