    Well, the title sounds a little too ominous, here's the story. I was going to preorder TFC 21 Blaster, Reissue Battle Convoy and EHobby Twincast. I priced them on Shoppertron and decided to buy them at Action-HQ because they would be $35 cheaper than BBTS. I went there, put them in my cart with a couple Robotmasters that were on sale and went to check out. Now, here's the crazy part- the shipping was $100 friggin bucks! Needless to say, I DIDN'T order from them. I just thought you all would be well-served to know this. I don't know if this is something new or not, since I've ordered from
    them before and not had this problem. BTW, if you just were planning on ordering the 3 reissues without Robotmasters, it would only cost you $85 for shipping!

    its probably because they were preorders and would not come in at the same time...that would be my guess

    no, they hold it all and ship them together. besides, i bought 2 reissues a couple years ago from them and shipping was only from around $7 to $12.

    And to have the same amount of stuff shipped from JRS Toyworld would be $6.49 with their flat rate shipping. Guess where I ordered my reissues from?
