Rick at NFC gives great deals. No doubt about about it and I typically order waves from him.
The problem with pre-ordering single items one at a time, is that shipping starts to really add into the cost!
Thus it's part of the problem. I'd rather wait until they all come out and find an online store that will give me a decent price on them all at once and save some coin on the shipping!
It's a vicious circle... but one that I have been trying to fix by ordering these single items from a store like BBTS, where I can stick it in my pile of loot and wait until I have a set worth shipping...
Still I have not pre-ordered the borg wave or the Sisko in Capt Chair.
I face the same issue....those shipping charges add up fast! I used BBTS so I could just throw the items in my pile of loot to be shipped togeteher. Maybe some other people who only use places that ships items one at a time waitied too and now the Kruge and the Dukat packs are canceled.
