That’s the reason why I try not to pre-order but wait until the shops get it. By the time you add in shipping to the discounted pre-order prices, it usually costs more than MSRP. Damn shipping. To make it worth my while, I would need to pre-order like 10 to go below MSRP.
Also coolstuffinc.com doesn’t offer free shipping to Hawaii or Alaska!
Ebay sometimes is cheaper even with shipping costs, but you need to hunt for the bargains.
