    People are definitely OVERREACTING.ive spent now, well over a grand with baba these last few months and he/they always come through. And with bigger orders they usually come through FAST. everybody fix their undies, unruffle their feathers and just be patient.

    My wife said it best: "Appreciate what you have".

    Couldn't afford MP36 and Phoenix without my current job. It pays well. Gotta keep working hard to afford these luxuries I don't need but enjoy. Hopefully others can enjoy Phoenix in any capacity.

    I, too, have ordered from Baba, quite a few times, with Positive results, only once with only a slight delay.

    Ebay does mark items as shipped as soon as the address Label is printed, NOT when the item has actually made it to the post office for shipment.
    My guess is that Baba prob printed all the shipping labels out, (forgetting the auto trigger for marked as shipped) so as soon as he gets the items, he can send them right out. I trust him more than I trust ebay c/s reps and their made up ethics. They are aware of the "item marked as shipped" before it actually ships, and really don't consider that an issue for them. As long as they get their fees...but thats for another thread...

    Speaking of baba it looks like he's currently sold out. He doesn't have this listed anymore.

    YEAH, just got my shipped notification from Robot Kingdom. They usually get items in first and their prices are almost always lower than the main US sites. Thier shipping is resonable too! Thanks robotkingdom!

    Their price of 180 combined with over 50 shipping makes $230 one of the more expensive options available.

    Other retailers are 220 with free shipping. Plus folks on here are selling him new for 209 shipped.

    Robot Kingdom sucks.

    ... meanwhile, some of us are still waiting for BBTS to send their pre-order shipment notice.

    In my case... hardly anyone ships free to Canada regardless of the advertised price, I need to pay for shipping on top. So RK comes in at a decent price over here.

    I disagree. The free shipping you are quoting has a delivery time between 15 days and 30. In some cases more.

    The price from RK is with EMS included which typically takes 5 days. I know because I paid the sum you are quoting and every time I have used EMS I have had it delivered to my door in Greece in 5 days.

    It is expensive but the shipping you are using as a guide to bash them is not comparable.

    And they are the only retailer that uses Styrofoam inside their boxes something that no retailer so far across the globe has done for me.

    If you call it a... *ahem* peener in front of them, it will solve your problem pretty quickly. You won't have to make any choices! ;)
