Just pre-ordered from HLJ. I used to get a ton of Medicom stuff from them & never had an issue.

I use the private warehouse. It's like the pile of loot feature at BBTS. That way I can wait and ship them all together to save on shipping.

You can always go with HLJ and AmiAmi. Problem is AmiAmi sells out super fast with their pre-orders but they usually have a slightly better deal. HLJ has been known to screw people over on pre-orders especially when they fill their quota and then repost the pre-order.

I personally have never been burned by them, but know those who have. However I trust both of those sites.
I figured I would pre order them through HLJ now and if I find them cheaper I can always cancel and go with someone else. I thank everyone for their honest opinions on HLJ. I have never had a problem with cstoys or amiami. So I figured why not try them. I also picked their EMS shipping. Hopefully they don't overcharge on that.

Actually their EMS isn't bad... it's real close to AmiAmi... I find that although I love the service from CS... they're high on EMS.

Okay, ordered! whew. I always go EMS if it's something I want faster, and in this case I do. the slight premium is worth it to me.

HLJ says Sept for all 4... but I'm sure that Oct for Mike/Don is probably accurate, staggering the release is probably better for sales.

hard to say at this point what the demand will be on these. Will they sell out way in advance of shipping? Maybe they won't sell out at all? Guess we'll find out! But one thing is for sure... I'm not gonna risk missing this window.

So when you choose the private warehouse option, that will combine the shipping into one payment? I selected ship when available so I would have pay 4x the shipping amount?

No you would probably pay shipping on two and shipping on the next two if they stagger the release. I have a feeling they wont release all of them at the same time.

What I'm asking is does the shipping cost a big difference if choosing private warehouse instead of just shipping the first two figures when available?

Been looking at these for 20 minutes trying to find faults. The only thing I don't like is how the hydrant on Don's base is raised above the ground.

I hate to say it, but I think it's time for the NECA figures to move aside - there're some new Best Turtles Figures Everô...

As with any store, I'm sure you can find people that have had bad experiences. But I used HLJ to order my gashapon turtles and everything went super smooth. That's why I decided to use them again.

it took a few mins for me to get the e-mail. i'd wait at least 30 mins before freaking out.

i also have problems logging in. I use lastpass to remember my login details but it never works right on their site for some reason, I always have to type it in manually. try that.
