Re: Marvel Legends discussion

I don't know how they handle their rates, I'm just saying that shipping is REALLY expensive in Canada. I believe they use a flat rate, which helps balance out the cost of shipping across the country.

Small business discounts aren't great, we don't get ridiculous agreements like Amazon or Wal-Mart. In fact, I'd guess that small businesses and individuals likely subsidize the rates they give the big stores.

And yes, shipping from Asia is dirt cheap. Unfortunately Canada Post is not, but it's still the cheapest option for domestic shipping.

Yes, it's my understanding that that is a major factor. It is impossible to have a networked infrastructure since almost all of the population lives in a straight(ish) along the border. It's not like the US or other countries where it is a web of densely populated areas where shipping routes can be shared.

Re: Marvel Legends discussion

I've had the CP small business card for years. Your 'bonus' is getting Expedited for the price of regular parcel.

Your other bonus with using the card is having to pay GST+HST for any destination that you ship to. Absolutely bananas paying the 13-18% taxes when you don't live in that province.

I did not check stock but HTS has a Doppelganger code to save 22% on their site so even with their FedEx $30 shipping maybe they have something on there?

Re: Marvel Legends discussion

Anyone know what happened to the new Medusa figure? Is it not being released as a EB games exclusive like the F4 figs? Haven’t heard anything anywhere.

Re: Marvel Legends discussion

Hopefully we continue to get the Walgreens exclusives through EB and them putting the Human Torch on sale for $13 wasn't a bad enough sign for them to stop ordering them
