Sites like MyUS.com will render those issues obsolete.

Well, it doesnít, because then you pay twice for shipping. Again, annoying. Not unmanageable but annoying.

That doesn't seem to be the case at my local GS. I asked and the guy said I needed to order them from the site. Will probably wait until a bit closer to Christmas, but I fully intend to order a set. Or Mikey, at the very least.

Still cheaper then paying individual shipping.

And lets be honest here, these are worth it, and what's a few more bucks for something of this quality really?

I'm loving the fact that I have these on the way, despite the wait we have to endure. A few weeks ago, I didn't think I'd be seeing these for at least a couple years, due to the crazy cost or wait for bootlegs.

It's bizarre, because the one near my job is doing it in-store. The manager specifically told me and several others, "Don't bother with the website, just come in and drop $20 to reserve all four. You have until February to pay it off and you don't need to pay shipping this way."

I mean, NJ rules for lots of reasons, but I'unno. I guess some GameStops are doing in-store and some aren't, but that's a bizarre policy.

Didnít say it wasnít worth it, just that itís annoying. Peeps be super defensive. The individual items ship to Canada so why not the bundle? (Which says they may ship individually as wellóhence, Iím concerned that I may have to pay 4 times with MyUS.)

If ordering these online do they charge to your account right away or when they come in? Never pre-ordered from Gamestop before. The newest console I own is a PS2.

Rooish. My apologies. I was thinking they would likely ship together so Gamestops shipping would be the only real difference. If they ship individually that would make a big difference.

If you order online there is no charge until they ship. If you go to the store they require at least 5 down per figure to reserve

I'm getting my set on my Power Up Rewards CC

Thanks. That is what I thought they were doing. But I wanted to be sure.

91.99 plus tax and they have a 7.00 express shipping option for this
Anyone in the the UK managed to buy? I have someone to ship to in the USA but there is no option for a UK billing address and I canít seem to use PayPal when using a VPN.

Was watching YouTube yesterday when a commercial from GameStop, advertising their action figures popped up. It featured the small scale Neca Raphael.

Asked about it again today, and the girl there said they won't know if they will get them in-store until February when they start shipping. So.... maybe? Holding out hope that I can just snag a set at my local GS, but may still have to order online.

Provided there is no limit on the number that can be purchased, I WILL be snagging these come February for my international buyers.

If any of you need the SDCC casing or full pizza with box to replicate the SDCC set, I do still have a few left.
