    ShowZ's customer service cannot be beat though. For me it is worth the price. Their customer service is as good if not better than what I would expect from an American retailer.

    Yeah I feel the same. They have never not responded to one of my messages, and they're active on the boards! Couldn't expect more from them.

    Indeed.

    Though I was saying that if take a HA figure and stand it next to a HA alt mode Transformer, it looks too big. Put Sam next to MPM Bee in alt mode and the size works.

    My La Hire from TFS-Express shipped via DHL was scheduled to deliver next Monday, but the tracking got updated to delivering today. If true, that's pretty lightening fast considering I just got the shipping notice yesterday. Not bad for only about $5 more than other typical China sellers' standard shipping price.

    At the risk of sounding dumb, where do I see the expected delivery? I can't see anything like that on the website

    On the DHL tracking website, there should be an "Estimated Delivery" section near the top right. I also received a text and an email from DHL not too long ago indicating delivery today.

    It’s never taken more than 2 weeks for me to get anything from them. For free shipping halfway around the goddamn world that’s excellent.

    No doubt ShowZ will use anything other than DHL. I am probably done with them after this. Not saying they are a bad business, but if you can get something faster for cheaper, why not go that route?

    The shipping speed is the other reason I'm considering going with TFS Express for this one, just because it seems quite a bit faster.

    Which shipping method did you choose? The more expensive method I assume.
    Thanks

    Yes, I went with the premium shipping option from TFS-Express. The totals came to $97. With free shipping from other China based shops such as ShowZ and TF Safari, its around $92, so I figured $5 is worth the 10 days or so difference in shipping speed to me.

    La Hire just got delivered at around 11:30AM, which is a new record for what I've experienced from DHL. It was shipped out 7/11 and arrived 7/12. In the past it has been about 3 days on the button.

    Paid for mine from showz, I expect 1 to 2 weeks for delivery to US... next time probably gonna try TFS-Express... I still have a pre-order of the Toy World Movie BumbleBee at showz... not sure to switch or not.

    Update: checked my last order from showz, shipped on 5/20, delivered on 6/4 in US. pretty slow. :)
