After reading these replies, it sounds like I should grab one on eBay for $19.99 (+ normal shipping).

I've never been billed at the door. I'm not sure what RODC is

It is a rediculously bogus charge that FedEx uses like a handling fee. They claim they check the parcels at the boarder, pay the taxes on your behalf and transfer the parcel from their US trucks to Canadian trucks. Then they send you some rediculous bill that includes the taxes and customs fees plus their handling fees.

I hate FedEx. They inhale sausage-shaped appendages big time.

When I purchased a force FX lightsabre from MR on sale ($99 with free shipping and included the obiwan .45 scale lightsabre) they tried to charge me $60 because MR listed the item value rather than purchase price. I argued with them, told them I was never going to use FedEx again and never paid the bill.

Yeah, both companies charge the brokerage fee. In theory it is supposed to greatly speed up the customs process by using a broker. So the service costs quite abit. Unless you are in real rush to get something, always try and have it sent USPS if possible. Sideshow has now included it in the shipping cost when you buy stuff from them, so at least you can see the fees all upfront (except for taxes).

In Farmington, New Mexico on business and checked out Target and Wal*Marts and KB Toys. Found Titanium ships...quite a few new ones, including the Ep.III Falcon...thinking this is Wave 9 and 6.3 items here. Hoped to have found those multi-packs...oh well. Wal*Marts here look like they just re-set the shelves.

Saw remnants of the Mos Eisley Wave (R5, Sandtrooper) and found that Attactix Intergalactic Showdown  :sign0065:...passed. Picked up a Series 3 pack for my son, seeing as Canada never got anything past Series 1.

Even found, at KB Toys, a Jedi Force Han Solo that never made it north of the border on clearance. They also had that SW Pez pack here as well.

Stopped by Target...remnants of Eisley...ther-wise pretty bare. However, saw something on the bottom shelf behind BYO Lightsabers...Scorch w/ red yoda!

Might have to keep looking in between meetings :)

Just picked up some Shadow Troopers and a Tatooine Sandtrooper from CRToys.  Cool guy and the prices are very descent.  He's also getting the Carnor Jax and Kir Kanos two packs so I don't even have to order them online! Woohoo!  Now I don't need to keep reading about you guys back east going to a store and finding stuff at reasonable prices that is impossible to find at TRU!
