    HLJ, they don't have the cheapest shipping but you're still paying less than the other places that are charging $20-$25 for the figure.

    Yeah, HLJ are charging a pretty reasonable amount. If you can stand the wait, SAL shipping doesn't cost too much either.

    Last time I ordered Revoltechs I ordered two of them and the cost was 780 yen ($6.75) for SAL shipping. SAL can take anywhere from 1 week to 7 weeks, but it usually only takes about 2 weeks for orders to arrive for me.

    If the price is differnet in terms of a few dollars.. why not just get it where it's fastest?

    IF the price if dramatically different, then I wouldn't mind waiting SAL.

    That's me anyway..

    I'm pretty patient so I really don't need EMS. If I was ordering something really heavy or valuable then I would probably use it.

    Oh.. i mean more like.. a a retail store or an online retailer closer to you

    If the difference is a few dollars.

    Otherwise, I can be patient with SAL. I agree.. EMS is expensive.. but worth it if the item is expensive

    If you don't go with HLJ, you'll have to pay shipping from Japan to the dealer, dealer's customs (if any), and shipping to you... I'd rather pay $15-20 shipped from HLJ than $15-20 PLUS shipping from someone in the US.

    I usually avoid EMS since it tends to attract customs charges on my side. However, SAL is usually two weeks Japan - UK so no problems there. It's only a week slower than EMS most times, and since EMS gets held up by all the charges, processing, deliveries, it ends up being no faster for me.
