    Has anyone looked at iGears site recently? It seems that for once, by buying TFSource or BBTS, we actually catch a break in cost.

    I was looking at the coneheads, and they are much cheaper at TFSource.

    Cause Igear charges insane shipping rates and won't combine for the normal buyer.

    With TFsource buying in bulk it drastically reduces cost per piece.

    It's swings and roundabouts. IGear mark their packages with low value, which has saved me from coughing up huge amounts to UK customs and imports...

    Yes, but usually that price is still what is quoted to us.

    For instance, Ratchet and Ironhide are $110 with free shipping from iGear, $120 from BBTS and TFSource.

    Oh I paid wayyyyyyy too much for my Coneheads directly from iGear. At the time, they were the only ones with them for pre-order though and I didn't want to chance missing out, but the shipping was a killer. Then I bought Sunstorm from TFsource and paid $10 or so too much as opposed to getting them directly from iGear with free shipping. Go figure.
