    They charge me tax in VA now too. Makes shipping expensive because they charge it when you ship. I would rather they charge the sales tax when they charge for the product.

    Do you mean they charge tax on the shipping cost plus the cost of said item? I guess I never noticed since I always choose the $4 option.

    I'm pretty sure its just tax for the item, but they charge you the tax the same time they charge you shipping.

    Yeah they charge sales tax on everything you ship when you hit ship, plus the shipping cost. I would rather they charge me sales tax at the time the preorder comes in so the price and tax of the figure is already taken care of.

    Ah, you mean if you pre-order and pay upfront, you just pay for the item. Then when you want to ship your Pile of Loot, then they charge tax. Am I getting that right?

    yup. Used to be when you hit ship on your POL it just charged shipping. Now it does tax and shipping.

    That’s the rumor/secret inside sources report that’s been going around for years. If you cancel enough pre-orders, you get put on a penalty list where your orders are then processed last. Not sure if it’s true or not, but I’d believe it based on similar experiences to yours.

    Could be, ive had a few items Ive preorder due to bbts shipping as a better deal but then I decide not to buy or I find them locally way sooner than bbts gets them in. Like iron factory Phecda and Mizar had been released since at least July and BBTS just got theirs in. I cancelled my preorder weeks ago and bought through toy dojo

    Same here. I ordered 3 Refractors and found them locally first so I cancelled. Oh well. Gives me more time to get the money.
