    is the $35 taxes just import taxes? because I tried getting Noizu and Girafu and Frenzy cassettes but they put $35 in taxes on that too... not paying 70$ for 3 cassettes

    Dont think I want to pay $35 in taxes for the seacons either so I'll go with Chosen Prime

    MN's at about 7% these days. Hit $104.

    It's likely no different if Takara ends up selling Hasbro Selects. It's a straight import of the foreign figure.

    For people who need an example, think back to the OOOOLD days of Beast Wars where they briefly gave people the option to import stuff from BWII (including LioConvoy and Galvatron.)

    It was just a straight import, with *maybe* an extra Hasbro sticker to denote that it came from their website.

    Are you sure you didn’t just put them in your cart twice? There’s no way the tax should double the cost.

    Locked in on my favorite. Now to wait for the next batch. I'm just glad they all stepped up and set up pre-orders ASAP. I hate that "will they ever get it game"

    Also free shipping if you spend more than $50. I don't have Pulse Premium and got free shipping on Lancer by ordering Astrotrain and Apeface at the same time.

    I really hope Hasbro releases these at retail because I want a set of these but there's no way I can afford them if this is the only way to get them.

    Even if they have to cheap out on the paint and accessory count I don't care as I can get access to the molds at a cheaper price.

    Pulse is marking them as Takara imports, so the chances of Hasbro releasing them at retail is 0%.

    Lesser individuals would have given up in frustration, I know I did long ago. Glad to see you continued to fight the good fight to educate people.

    pretty much, this is hasbros way of getting them to people without actually having to get them to people

    misinformation and lack of reading comprehension are my two biggest pet peeves on this site :p

    I never signed up to Premium and all of my orders so far have included free shipping, including these two Seacons just now.

    It takes a lot of effort to fight misinformation. :thumb 

    Ordered mine through Pulse, with the free shipping. Both Pulse and BBTS charge me tax, but Pulse ships my things in a day, not close to two weeks.
