Finally pulled the trigger on this one. I ordered it directly from Prime 1 to the USA, so we will see how much shipping is...

I tried checking shipping on the Mosasaur which is huge too, vs the Indominus Rex.

Indominus was :

Economy Shipping - $283.00
* Expected Delivery Time: 1-3 months once the final payment is paid.
* The total purchase amount with the shipping fees does include the customs duties.
* In some cases, these customs duties, taxes and others levies if applicable may be charged by your country's customs authority and collected by the carrier.
* Please note that the shipping cost might be changed later due to the shipping company's revision of fares etc.

Standard Shipping - $457.00
* Expected Delivery Time: 1-3 weeks once the final payment is paid.
* The total purchase amount with shipping fees doesn't include customs duties, sales taxes or the other levies if applicable.
* In some cases, these customs duties, taxes and others levies if applicable require to be charged by your country's customs authority and collected by the carrier.
* It is your responsibility to inquire the amount of duties and taxes you will owe prior to your shipment.
* Please note that the shipping cost might be changed later due to the shipping company's revision of fares etc.
and the Mosasaur is :

Standard Shipping - $291.00

* The total purchase amount with shipping fees doesn't include customs duties, sales taxes or the other levies if applicable.
* In some cases, these customs duties, taxes and others levies if applicable require to be charged by your country's customs authority and collected by the carrier.

Definetly a big difference. I'm assuming the Spinosaurus given it's size and base will be closer to the Indominus.

I have a concern when covid goes away that these shipping prices will remain, like the shipping companies will try and pull the "these are the new norm" type thing.

Then they need a U.S. supplier than can cut the costs down or just not expect to sell nearly as many I guess.

Shipping prices are only going to increase as time passes. More people are buying online due to COVID and COVID will never go away as it is airborne. Vaccines don't kill viruses.

as for shipping prices thats going to be a huge decider for several companies moving forward and will ultimately decide if a business will survive or not.

Actually the UK Oxford vaccine has shown it can stop transmission, so yes it can be killed.
And it's not airborne unless you sneeze it out over someone. Masks might be a good idea here...

It might not go away completely though, it's most likely to turn into a seaonal virus like the flu is, but after these vaccines have rolled out it won't be anything like it is now.
