The shipping price is included in the original list price for the bigger stuff like statues.
Not really. I've bought a few statues from BBTS before, and their price was the same as the manufacturer's website. I think they just have such HUGE volume across all products, that they can give out such cheap shipping.

I went to a general store. They wouldn't let me buy anything specifically.

You never know with shipping costs now....P1 sent me an almost $800 California shipping bill for 1/3 Red Sonja deluxe....so with Sorrow you cant be sure how much HMO will charge.....could well be way over $200 for shipping....the extra $150 charged by BBTS is for shipping costs and top notch US customer service peace of mind with returns or parts replacement.

eh.... For some SS stuff it's about the same though the price you would have paid in shipping is the discount anyway (for example it's like $50 less on secret compass). And back in the day p1 was the same as list price, but those days are long over :P

It is effectively the standard everyone in the US uses but no it's called economy shipping on checkout.

Looks like Sorrow is all but complete, ready to box up, and ship.
The stills above were taken from the latestest HMO - Sorrow video. The video shows someone testing statue stability by giving each piece a nudge. Nothing too high tech. He could have worn gloves. The factory looks clean compared to some of them.

My only hope is that Sorrow matches the same high quality as Ren. Sorrow appears to have gone through a troubled production, hence the massive delay.

It looks amazing - congratulations to all the lucky owners. Not to mention the exclusivity of the piece - awesome addition to any Sci Fi collection.
