Amazon.com actually pre charges you for any import duties or taxes when you check out. I've put through orders several times. You won't get dinged later, they take care of it all right there at checkout when it's applicable.

Never use UPS when shipping from US. They are the worse for brokerage.

And they will even refund you if the duties collected were lower than expected! The last time I ordered from them, they sent me an email 3 months after the purchase to tell me the duties they charged me were 6$ but that The border finally only charged 2$ in the end, so I got 4$ reimbursement.

I can still get the 7th Sister/Maul pack here - 3 left on the pegs as of this am. No Baze left, sadly. The cost of shipping the item is nearly the same as the item itself (speaking from recent previous experience). If anyone wants this set picked up & held or shipped, just let me know and we can work something out.

In my experience, Amazon.com has really nice customer service.  They've always given me price adjustments when requested.  Once, they weren't able to refund the money so instead they gave me a credit to use on a future purchase.

Getting money back from the customs fees not being collected was a very nice surprise.

For those ordering, one thing to be careful of is there seems to be phishing scheme going on now involving an email from "Amazon" about a "cancelled" order. 

If anyone does receive an email from "Amazon" and feels compelled to check on their "cancelled" order, I highly suggest checking one's Amazon account directly and not going through the email.

Saw both the Baze and Maul sets at a local TRU. Better late than never, I suppose. :P

The Baze/Stormtrooper pair is also showing up at Canadian Tire. My nephew saw this pack today along with the Phasma/Finn pack at a local Canadian Tire but CT has raised the price of 2-packs to 22.99.

It's worth noting that the Baze figure from the wave 3 (Finn/Phasma) case has a different, less yellow skin tone from the original release. It looks a bit better.
