    Didn't want to create a new thread but I couldn't find an answer to my question. I'm wanting to order a figure but they wont mail it til flights open again and that's fine. But I cant get a shipping quote yet either. Anyone state order from them? Is the shipping reasonable? Thanks

    I've ordered from them pre-pandemic and they were awesome. Fastest shipping form HK to NY I've ever had with the regular shipping option.

    But now, I have no idea. I personally don't like have orders sit out there for an unknown time. I won't consider this a slight against them, but it's just the state they're in right now beyond their control.

    I appreciate that. I just didn't want to find out that shipping would be $100 you know?

    Last month I was going to place an order, was able to get to the shipping section and it was $90cheapest for a $200 item!!

    I was shell shocked. But reading more about the cargo plane situations, etc, who know when they'll ship.

    It wouldn't have normally been that expensive though right?

    They just got back with me about fanstoys Phoenix and said shipping would be $63. I think they're talking about if I shipped it now with a pandemic going on

    Probably, I'd ask how they'd ship and if it'd definitely go out or stuck somewhere. Up to you though if you can wait.

    This was shipping from May 2018:

    NEOARTTOYS NT MC White Leo 1 $79.90 $79.90
    Sub-Total: $79.90
    e-Express Service: $16.57
    Total: $96.47

    I can't even place an order with them because zero shipping quotes come back and that halts the checkout process.
