I'm curious here...are the shipping rates from China/Hong Kong subsidized at all?
Reason ask is that it seems like the shipping rates are "cheap" from that part of the world, in relation to other parts of the world. According the US Post Office site, a 1 pound package to Hong Kong going first class would cost me $11.60 to ship from the East Coast of the USA, but when I placed an order from Hobby Easy for a couple small things, the shipping cost was only $7.60 or so after exchange rates.
Europe is crazy also...I can't order anything from Germany...Shipping rates are normally 15-20 Euros to start (for the smallest thing), which works out to $26 USD...but yet from the Czech Republic, I can get 4 Blackdog sets sent to me for 7 Euros which is reasonable. Shipping from France (Blast Models) is some what reasonable also....
FedEx from HLJ is stupid fast and fairly reasonable, for the most part if you make a larger $$$ order from them.
