    Doesn't bother me at all. Having a waist swivel on a Seeker is amazing!

    I always wondered why some people prefer US retailers over overseas (Chinese) retailers.

    Can you tell me why you prefer them, even with the price markups?

    Biggest difference is that US retailers usually get you your toy a lot faster, with a lot clearer tracking info.

    I'm perfectly willing to order from overseas retailers, mind you, but if the price is at all close, I'll go with the US retailer.

    Same here. I'm just as impatient as I am frugal. Those characteristics conflict sometimes, LOL

    If anyone is interested, I'm selling my basically MISB copy for essentially what I got it for at Showz: $140 shipped. Figure was never transformed. I only plugged in the null rays, which resulted in a small paint chip on the handle on one. I'm one of the few people that prefer MP-52.

    Same here. If it's within $10-$15 I'll just go with the US seller.

    Probably a trust/security thing.

    I'm not taking a side, mind you.

    I've got a Like-New copy of MP-52 in box I'd love to get rid of.

    I fucking love DS-01. Then again, I haven't converted him yet.

    My reasoning has to do with dealing with shipping which is always a bad at best. I'm fairly certain it is my local post office that is the problem, and most international shipping I've had all end up going to USPS. I have a local pickup option for most 3P stuff, and when that doesn't work I generally pay extra for shipping to get UPS or Fed Ex which I don't believe I've seen as an option from any Chinese store.

    That's depends. Some of my packages from China end up going to FedEx for delivery here in the US

    Do you have any idea on a pattern of which ones do? If it just randomly happens that wouldn't help me much.

    I'm sure it's a specific service, but I couldn't tell you which one. I know that doesn't help at all. I can check some of my old orders and see if I can figure it out. It seems like USUALLY when I order from terrytfsclub it gets delivered by FedEx. I'll look at my orders there.

    Thank you, but don't feel obligated if you decide it is too much work. I might try a one off order with Terry to test it out.
