    Question for those who order from Toy Dojo more often than me… is their free shipping threshold $150? And if you combine an in-stock item with a preorder, a) does that threshold still apply and b) do they wait till all items arrive before shipping?

    If Vivace ends up being available on Toy Dojo after the show, I’m thinking I could switch one of my other preorders to them to get the free shipping.

    Yes, free shipping threshold is $150. It's my recollection that it MUST be at least $150, not $149.99; your order will ship once all items are in stock if you make a purchase on an in-stock item and a pre-order item. An added perk to ToyDojo is, if you are budgeting in advance, you can pay upfront for the full amount of a pre-order item or elect to pay once the item is in stock. I typically pay up front instead of getting hit with a surprise expense a few months down the road, but your mileage may vary.

    Awesome, thanks very much! That’s useful info. Now to see if there’s anything I can get along with this guy… assuming he shows up for sale online at all after the show.

    Glad to be of assistance! I'm inclined to believe that this guy will show up at various e-tailers after the show, and it's likely not even going to be a matter of: "Unsold TFCon Vivace figures will go up for sale on Planet Steel Express, ToyDojo, and Ages 3 & Up." It's more so a matter of: "We will have pre-orders up on these 3 websites to gauge interest, and if interest is high then we will solicit this figure to other e-tailers while we crank up production at the factory."

    Methinks MMC's recent R3 behavior (repaints, reissues, and remolds galore) underscores a collected effort to stay afloat, and to build towards a bigger release of a completely new figure from a new mold.

    Yeah, totally. I feel like most of their “exclusives” have actually been fairly attainable after the fact.

    Dam I already got my preorder payment request for this and the repaint of Mnemo from TD.
    Looks like these are coming in hot.

    Jumped on the PSX order since there wasn’t any other items I wanted at Toy Dojo (and thus I would’ve had to pay for shipping anyway). It ended up being the same price between the two with shipping for me. Glad I was able to order this guy at all! Finally after all these years, an SG Steeljaw… and on a good mold, no less! (Remembering how years ago I would have even settled for the KFC version that never happened…)

    My thoughts as well! :) 

    KFC from yesteryear...*shudders*...I recall a time in my naive youth, when KFC was involved in such a debacle that they did an "outreach" to determine whether fans would prefer that they rebrand themselves. The backlash from the backlash was popcorn viewing material.

    Did A3Us free shipping threshold go up? I thought it was $150 like other stores but in the FAQ it shows $250CAD which is over $180US. $10 cheaper than Toy Dojo is cool but if shipping drives the cost back up and it takes more to hit the threshold, then it really doesn't matter.
