    Predaking was issued a return label and refunded painlessly.. however, The siege figs were a different dilemma. The requirements from the particular rep were more involved than an actual insurance claim, (even though the website states satisfaction guaranteed)...luckily, I had photographed and catalogued everything upon delivery (ebay has made me "cautious") and sent them, along with descriptions, but never heard back. I dont think it was even looked at, so I Added them to the "Order at Your Own Risk" List..

    Although I'm liking what I see from Pulse so far, HTS was capable of being hit-or-miss with good packaging on Transformers at times, just like Amazon. For this reason, despite the incoming Megatron and several pre-orders I made from Pulse, I placed my Omega Supreme order with BBTS for some assurance at least that box would arrive well-packed. I'm hoping to see Pulse get a great rep for shipments as well, but I'll wait to see how window-boxed and carded items arrive for people.

    I have that, and I can hold it somewhere, but nope, it never allows me to pre-sign for anything, including the day of delivery. I'm guessing it costs more on the part of the shipper for that option, or something.

    Has anyone seen anything about them not charging 20$ up front on shipping for Canadians?
    I was going to Pre-order the one upcoming Prime, but at 50 US + 22 US Shipping and Taxes, it's 80 US or 104 Canadian, I won't be now.

    That's not reasonable.
    I don't understand these companies that say "In the US and Canada!" and then think that tossing another 20$ American on top of the shipping cost counts.
    It doesn't, you're clearly just charging the cost to ship from the States location.

    Just say you are US based and be done with it. The argument that "They can't do it" would be ridiculous, you can't tell me that a major company cannot be bothered with a warehouse in Canada somewhere if they were properly committed.

    Ages 3+ Up has done this for crying out loud, so lets have a look.

    Ages 3+ Up has the G2 Megatron and as does Hasbro Pulse. So lets look at that.
    _______________

    Ages 3+ Up
    CAD: $47.20
    USD: $35.78

    Hasbro Pulse
    CAD: $77.49
    USD: $58.74


    The Difference?
    CAD: $30.29
    USD: $22.96

    ______________

    Is anyone going to say that a third party buying an item, having it brought in to the country to them, then marking up for their own profit, billing a shipping cost to you, and still selling for that much cheaper than the manufacturer has any kind of logic?

    Do or do not ship internationally, but this route is going to end up with a suit going "Well I guess there's no demand in Canada or internationally!" when Canadians rightfully don't bite.

    Jetfire arrived from Pulse today. He even managed to survive some kind of assassination attempt.

    I’m sure most of them will be like yours. I was actually happy to see the damage because it gave me a laugh and I recycle packaging anyway. :)

    I decided to order a Cog, mostly to get the free shipping and "Premium" account for the future. Hopefully more Ironhides become available in April.

    I wish they would restock Chromia and add Brunt. It’s odd to me that stores are taking orders for Red Alert but not his wave mates.

    I would also like to see SS Shatter, since they already have the following wave up.

    So the FedEx driver delivered my package to the wrong house. This is going to be frustrating.

    Wal-Mart sells most of their product just below MSRP, that's why they have a sell to as many people and sell them as much as the can carry approach. It's also why their profit manger is about half of other stores.

    Wtf!!! That's bullshit. We are responsible to call and fix their screw up??!! But, what was the price when you ordered it? Was it on first two hours of the Pulse launch or later?
