Ok, someone please help me here. It looks like Toys Chameleon charges about $73 US per case and shipping to the U.S. is around $30. My question is, do they charge more for shipping multiples cases? I was trying to add 4 to my cart (making a master case) but it wouldn't register on the checkout page, so I wasn't able to see if shipping would increase.
Sorry, never used them before.
Also, if anyone has websites that they suggest preordering this series from, could you please let me know since the only cases I bought were from BBTS here in the U.S.
Around these parts, I think most folks who pre-order their Kubricks use one of these sites:www.eBay.com
- pretty obvious and where I startedwww.HLJ.com
- Japan e-tailer, good prices if you get in earlywww.robby.jp
- Japan wholesaler, but you need to preregister a "retail wholesaler" account to orderwww.spanky.co.jp
- never used them myself, but others havewww.toys-chameleon.com

I think toys-chameleon is the only one taking pre-orders so far...
How much do the cases typically cost and how much is shipping for a mastercase? Can you use credit cards to preorder or do they require prepayment for international orders?
By pre-ordering early, individual boxes of 12 usually run anywhere from $65-80. The earlier you order, the better the price. Master cases would obviously then be anywhere from $260 to $320.
Shipping really varies depending on where you live and how much you buy. Probably run anywhere from $30-60 for shipping a Master Caser, depending on if you choose SAL (surface) or EMS (express).
Most of the places will take a credit card hold to secure a pre-order and then charge you once the stuff ships. Be VERY wary of those who make you pay full price on pre-order. Lotsa people lose money that way because they pay up front and the pre-order is never filled (especially the case on eBay
And is there any way to translate these Japanese websites? Your collective help is appreciated.
I like to use www.babelfish.altavista.com
