    I preordered both revoltech Prime and Magnus. I got the Prime from Action HQ, and I found Magnus from Hobbylink, where at the time, it was the only place that had him up for preorder. Now, they both shipped on the same day or so, but I was very surprised to find that HLJ was, overall, much cheaper than Action HQ. I remember reading some where a while back that HLJ had high shipping prices, and it was a disadvantage to order from them unless you were purchasing multiple items. I found this not to be the case. So, not only does HLJ have very good prices directly from Japan, they also have decent shipping prices.

    I know that many of you already know all of this, but it was news to me, and I am happy about it. :)

    I just paid for my order from Hobbylink for both figs. Came out to 37 and some change shipped. I don't know how Action HQ delivers, but I think since Hobbylink delivers via SAL which is usually alot slower, that may be why it's cheaper.

    Are they any good? Referring to the figures? Hows the quality? I'm planning of getting prime & magnus also.

    Looking forward to your feedback.

    Thanks.

    EMS isn't that much more expensive than SAL if the package is light. Actually if the package is lighter than 1.5kg (bit over 3 pounds, I think) EMS is cheaper.
