    So has anyone gotten anything off Amazon from this Kickin Toys before? Is it in any way suspicious that they keep putting up figs for less than MSRP, selling out, then having more to sell the next day? Red Albert is up for $12 again.

    They're legit. I've ordered from them a few times because dirt cheap price and free shipping. They ship out of Utah and they pack you items securely in a box with foam peanuts. Unlike bubble bag lovin' Amazon. :p o_O 

    My most recent from them was Siege Galaxy Upgrade Prime for 39 bones shipped I received last week.

    I too can vouch for them. Iirc I bought SS Barricade, Sideswipe and WW2 Bee from them, all for less than retail, free shipping and no taxes. It took a while, but for me there's no such thing as "2 day shipping". I don't mind waiting, but I say it because I've seen people here getting extremely upset when things don't get to them fast.

    I feel you on the shipping. It did charge me for taxes though.

    How do you deal with ordering an item that's $24.99 with free shipping on orders over $25, but taxes don't count?

    Does it have to be from the same vendor?

    I’m waiting to get my last two for less than retail. They’re soooo small.

    Amazon just dropped Thundercracker off today, so 6 down, 1 to go:

    Unless they're planning a few more repaints! Like a Sunstorm/Hotlink/Bitstream 3-pack:

    Thundercracker is the wrong shade of blue.

    I got in on the pre-order myself of Thundercracker Siege,...... so if it sells out i still have a order. I did the order right after i seen someone here post about it again. So seeing as Pulse is out of stock, i needed a gateway to get it. Thanks guys for the heads up cause at first i thought about Pulse ordering but since that is a empty street Amazon will suffice.

    Letters From the Front

    I hope you did not grow concerned with the delay in my letters but this war can change so very, very quickly. You believe you have a handle on it, that you understand it, and then everything with change in an instant. It can be maddening and frustrating... but part of me craves it. The rush and the thrill when I finally spot the target. What is this doing to me? Can I ever be the bright eyed innocent I was before this madness?

    Yesterday word came down that the Thundercrackers had been spotted. There was confusion, panic... some thought it was just a trick, others a delusion. But... but I had to try. I rushed out, fighting against the tide of others who also made the push and I came upon that brown shorts wearing warrior and I claimed my prize!

    Now I am packing up... this battle is done for me but the war is not. I'm being sent to the 'Waiting For Packages Sucks' front because, let's face it, I should have been doing this bit there in the first place. There other battles await me... more dread and terror. Why can't we live in a world where we live in peace... and harmony... and packages arrived on time? Maybe I'm just a dreaming fool but I can only hope.

    I can only hope.

    If it's not Amazon's fault then why do they continue to give me credits?

    *decides to check Thundercracker's status for the heck of it*

    Huh. Bump up from the 28th to arriving Tuesday. Neat. I'll have my seeker gangs complete faster than I thought!
