    You expect too much! ;) 

    But then what would I do with the hundreds of little gliders I've built?! o_O

    Dude! You could totally have the mice with the built-in gliders fly your gliders to ShowZ so they can use them to fly the screws for Sheridan to everybody!

    That's what she said...

    But what about the mice to fly the gliders back?! They'll all still be at my house! Eating all my cheese and making me stand on a stool waving a broom at them as my lazy cat can't catch them...

    No...

    They've been charging me £5 an hour! And that's just trainee wages, I dread to think what it could cost me when I've got them all as qualified pilots! :eek:

    The 52 toys loader. Cheapest I’ve seen is $42 shipped and that’s still too much for me.

    Is America putting mail from China in quarantine? I have 3 packages that say they reached the destination country & then they went dark. No update in weeks. One says Import customs clearance completed. Now China is not the problem, America is.

    I had something arrive from FaithTopTalk on eBay (a bunch of MFT Diaclone KO stuff) arrive in near record time. It left China, went into Hong Kong, and left from there which may have something to do with it, I guess. Took all of 12 days or so, maybe 16 total from start of ordering to arrival on my doorstep. Was if anything faster than it usually took stuff from China to clear US customs and start moving within the US. Probably depends in part on where it's coming in from. Was it LA, Chicago, or New York City? Those three places seem to be where most international mail comes in and processing times vary based on many factors.

    BBTS has it for $35, $4 for shipping, and depending on your state sales tax. Not in stock until June however. Looking at eBay it doesn't get any cheaper than that with current shipping charges taken into account. HobbyLinkJapan (HLJ.com) has it cheaper, but unless you consolidate it to ship with other items and have enough on hand to justify the cost of DHL or FedEx shipping it's not getting out of there cheaply either. SAL and EMS shipping from Japan to the US is shut down entirely due to lack of freight space on aircraft. Same reason it costs so much to get shipped from ShowZ, unfortunately.

    I have a Toyworld Constructor that has been sitting at the Shanghai Airport since March 15. Closing in on two months :(  - Somwhere is this chaos lies my order. Anybody else has an order that's been delayed that long?

    placed an order on Amazon.com with shipping to Canada for only $10 USD directly from i believe 52toys storefront and shipping coming from China. order consisted of Kanibal, EchoBlaster, 2x Dio BBPD and 2x Alien Xenomorph. checked a few days later after getting tracking number and shipping for that same order is now $30! i lucked out big time. ;) 

    was considering getting the loader, but ended up making a pass on it.

    i shopped around before pulling the trigger on Amazon for those items. prices was about par compared to everywhere else that had those listed so didn't think i'd get them anywhere else with any significant savings over what was priced on Amazon. and given i'm in Canada without much options of sourcing locally, cheapest shipping with as many figures i could group in one order was key.

    what figures did you pick up recently that went up in price, and how much is a lot higher if you don't mind me asking?
