    The axe is about 3 1/2 feet long so they charge oversized shipping.

    does HTS charge immediately for pre-ordering an item or when it ships?

    Imagine how many people would have asked Hasbro to throw it in the trash and charge them a lower shipping price...

    That axe should be collapsible. It's not like kids are going to get it.

    Ah yeah! I bought the Dinobots and Magic card set! :) 

    I only want the Ark so if anyone wants to make an offer on the Dinobots, send me a PM. Otherwise, I'll be throwing it on eBay once it arrives

    Got my Infinity Gauntlet sets, but when I tried to place another order to get MTG my card declined the charge for fraud concerns. WTF!?! By the time I was able to call to approve the charge it was sold out.

    Lots of dorks will pay upwards of $300 for it on eBay...so everyone wants one to sell.

    Why people actually give a shit about the set...beats me.

    Well considering these aren't preorders...but I think they charge when it is in stock for other preorders :)
