    Out of panic, I preordered from 3 different companies...

    The order from KB came, and was able to cancel one of them... unfortunately I couldn't cancel the one from Entertainment Earth.

    I would like to recoup the money (if possible)... or I'll just keep this 2nd one MISB on my shelf.

    Anyways, here's how much I paid for it this 2nd one:

    Jetfire - $26.99
    Sales Tax - $2.23
    Shipping & Processing - $7.45
    ------------------------------------------
    Total Paid = $36.67
    Me shipping it to you +$5.00 (UPS Ground with insurance and tracking)
    ------------------------------------------
    Would like $41.67

    I can scan the receipt if you want it...

    I'm not looking to get flamed because I'm not selling to make money, just to get the money back that *I* paid.

    OR

    I'm looking for the following:
    G1 Menasor (Complete) (I'll pay the price difference)
    TF Source Quint-01 Custom shipped (I'll pay $10 + Jetfire + shipping to you)
    ... I'll add more later when I think of any...

    Here's the receipt... I watermarked part of it because I'm paranoid...

    The shipping on the receipt shows $15.95 because I also ordered Primus. I figured the $7.45 shipping when checking the website for shipping just 1 item instead of 2.

    No offense dude, but you overpaid. Plus you are wanting someone else to pay what you did PLUS double the shipping. I know you don't want to lose money, but it's unlikely someone is gonna pay you $41 for that toy. Especially when they could just order it where you did and save at least $5.

    Do what I did when I ended up with two THS-02s. Hang on to one and hope it goes back up in value so you can get your money back, and end up selling it at a lose just to recoop some of you money.

    IG speaks many truths. It sucks, but...them's the breaks sometimes....You never know, though, you may get lucky and someone may want it, maybe an international fan. Good luck!

    This international fan would go for that if that price was including air mail shipping to this international fan's country, but this international fan does not believe that can be the case. And now this international fan has already said "this international fan" way too often.

    I know I definately overpaid. The KB total was $25 (this included shipping). EE charges an extra $6 for the figure alone, the shipping is higher, and I paid the sales tax...

    Blah...

    I thought to throw it out here just in case... like I said, worst case for me would to keep one MISB...

    About international, I wish the shipping to Netherland is $5... sorry to all the international fans, this is domestic USA only. :( 

    I add a couple more thing that I would like to trade for (in which case I wouldn't mind losing a little bit of money...)

    Go to a store to exchange it for something else? Some don't even ask for the receipt.

    Personally I'd take the loss on shipping and sell it to the International Fan in the Netherlands for 41.00 It won't cost that much more to ship it, you would only be out like 5-7 bucks maybe, and you would be making another fan very happy.

    I probably will, I'm not in a hurry... like I said I might just keep him MISB anyways... I'll wait a couple of weeks...

    Wish I could ship internationally... I just hate going to the local post office, so I ship everything UPS, and UPS internationally is pretty high.... sorry...

    No problem... you just haven't been to the post office if my area... 10 min drive to the PO, 5-10 min to wait for a parking space, 30-45 min waits in line, 5 min dealing with the person... blah... waste an hour with the post office, or just ship it UPS at my work that takes 5 mins total.

    Some people don't mind wasting an hour just to ship 1 item... I do. :) 

    Like I said, I'm not in a hurry to sell...
