    +2 for me!!

    For you people freaking out about shipping costs....
    Seriously, I'm all about hating on Matty However, their shipping prices are usually spot on (now, their TIME in shipping is another story...)

    I have shipped a TON of stuff international, and I can say that I will guarantee the CGs cost over $100 to ship. I shipped a 30"x16"x15" box from USA to Germany that weighed 10 pounds and it cost me something like $150.

    I was charged $36 to ship TWO CGs and I think that is reasonable (Im in USA, of course)

    I really do feel bad for international fans, as the shipping is a killer. However, when I order things from Japan I get his with similar shipping. It sucks, but it is just a sad fact of collecting. On these shipping costs, I just can't fault Matty. Go to USPS.com and you can estimate package costs. I think you will find their shipping is usually spot on.

    Order Date: October 16, 2012

    Product SKU Product Name Qty Ordered Amount
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Y6763 Castle Grayskull® 1 $250.00


    SubTotal: $250.00
    Shipping & Handling: $37.85

    Nice one Matty!!!

    Looks like they reduced the shipping expense. So International fans should take another look.

    Funny thing was that when I originally looked at it, USPS was 36, but when I went back to actually make the preorder it was 19 something. I tried out UPS and it was only 20 something! I've never seen such a small change between the two...
    They have changed shipping costs on the website. It was $50+ for UPS to Texas a couple of hours and now it's only $22.34. Hopefully this helps the international folk too

    Yeah, went with Newgistics. I may regret it in the long run, but oh well. At least I have a chance to get one! SOOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED!

    In light of all the recent posts about Shipping coming down, I'm guessing (hoping) that these rates will be applied to all orders, regardless of when they were placed, when (hopefully) shipping time comes.

    I wonder if the totals on those of us who already ordered will be lowered to reflect this new total.
    I ordered 2, which was $571.65... just checked total remained the same...

    Now, 2 are ... $536.85 ...soooo... do I get a order change/update??? Or am I just out $34.80 extra just because I was a more dedicated customer and I ordered sooner??

    Yup, did a trial pre-order in the morning and USPS shipping was $38. Now I did a trial pre-order and the USPS shipping was now $20. So I did the order with UPS Ground. It was only a $1 more.

    I am also from Ohio and chose the cheaper shipping option. I think tax was $37.58 which I don't think is the correct amount at all but whatever...

    Can't wait to set this thing up. A Talon Fighter with Point Dread would be a really cool add on

    Mine was the same price and I ordered mine like 10 minutes ago. Mine was right around $574.43 for 2 shipped with cheap USPS shipping. Tax was $37.58. I am sure KY has that new internet sales tax law too.

    Nah, TJules. It's just that Replikator's main love is MOTU and it's being cruel enough to him without my help.

    Just ordered one to Germany for Shipping & Handling: $94.30. Funnily the trackable option was cheaper then the non-trackable option. I hope this is not another Digital river screw up and I end up with a non-trackable shipment.
