    Oh really? Well, RK usually has pretty fair prices, I've found. The Amazon exclusives aren't all that much more than their regular versions they have for preorders.

    In the end, the prices were "worth it to me", so no biggie. I expected to pay a much larger mark-up for the Amazon versions on Ebay, so I didn't even expect to get the exclusives, even though I wanted them.

    It's difficult to resist exclusive accessories. Sucks for me as a Sideshow GI Joe collector, too. :)

    yeah I just checked , Amazon japan is less. From now on Order it yourself straight from Amazon Japan and have it shipped to a friend in Japan for free and then have them forward it to you. Save you a big chunk of cash

    MP-13 is around 150 dollars on Amazon.jp and 169 on RK...not too much of a mark-up

    You are right on MP-13 ! I was looking at the others, such as sideswipe and red alert MAJOR difference between the prices.

    Soundwave not so much, my bad !

    Easy if you've got a friend in Japan, I suppose. :) 

    Actually, I do - but I'm not going to put him out on this.

    Lambor and Red Alert 55 dollars on Amazon and 62.90 on RK, that's pretty reasonable (to me anyway)

    Oh they must have changed it in the last day or two. GOOD ! I was shocked at the price they were charging a few days ago

    If so, that is reasonable for sure

    Be great if you ordered at the price you saw them at though! Does anyone know what the shipping charge is from Amazon.jp? I have a friend in Japan but I haven't spoken to him in a while, I might have to start sucking up lol By the time shipping to Japan then shipping to where I am is added on I'm probably better off just going with RK

    Someone posted on another thread that a store called aimiie or something like that ( check, the thread talking about the size /scale is wrong on soundwave or Sideswipe and Red Alert here , I forget which ) is cheaper too. Dont know if they will ship from Japan to you or only Japanese houses but again its a few yen cheaper there ( I think roughly 200 yen = 2$ USD)

    The stores people are buying them from dont ship free from Japan to where you are so the shipping from Japan /your friend to your house will be the same as the stores, so yeah you are still saving money by cutting out the middle man

    But most stores in the last few days have dropped their prices to within a few bucks so its not that big of a deal to use these other stores now. I see TF sourse still has it up for 80 bucks though, sure it will change like the other stores have changed though

    I am in the US. Could someone give me a quick breakdown of the best place to pre-order Soundwave right now? I'm looking for the cheapest option (item + shipping total).

    Is there anywhere that will not charge me until the item actually ships, and will also allow me to cancel the order without penalty any time before it has shipped?

    ^ Cool. Thank you.

    I have ordered from Robot Kingdom before, and I like them, but it looks too expensive with the shipping charge.
