    I'm looking for the cheapest site that has the Beast Wars Reborn set for sale, and ships the packages in good condition. Not too important, but if a site that accepts Paypal will be nice too, but not needed.

    CapturedPrey.com has it for $66, which is WAY cheaper than anybody else. Most of the usual suspects in Japan and Hong Kong are selling it for 8000 yen, which is about $67. But then of course, you'd have to pay hefty shipping to get it to the US, whereas CapturedPrey are in the US and their shipping is CHEAP even by domestic shipping standards. I used Priority Mail and it was only $5. Of course I live near them, so Priority might have been cheaper for me, but they still have Parcel Post for under $5. My order total was $71 shipped for the set. And yes, they take Paypal.

    They're a good site, check them out.

    Looks like I might order from capturedprey. I do have some questions though. Do they ship the items in good condition? Also, it only lists the set as preorder right now

    edit: found packaging info on their site. Still unsure whether it is in. I'll still probably preorder from them though

    It's a preorder EVERYWHERE in the US. The thing was just released a couple of days ago, so the Asian stores have it in stock but it's still in transit to the US sellers.

    I've ordered from them before and the boxes were mint and wrapped in a ton of bubble wrap.

    I assumed that you got the set already. I'll probably be ordering when I get home. Thanks a lot

    I ordered mine from JRS Toyworld for $66.99 ( about a 2 hours drive from you DX7879 ) with their speical preorder price. Now that they have shipped from Japan, the price was raised to $69.99.

    I know they have a mint box guarantee.

    And why order from Fan to Fan for $66 bucks when you can get in domestically for the same price with a hell of a lot cheaper shipping?

    Speaking of the set, does anyone know if there are any galleries comparing Primal to the grey Primal released by Takara? I've only seen them comparing it to the black one.

    Ok. I didn't see the grey one in there unless the lighting is bad.
