Hi Hawk thanks for your opinion.
To the guys that were saying that I was a dumb *** well first of all I buy my stuff specially from US I was ripped off in shipping a few times but 80 or 90% of times I always manage to negotiate them and get the exact or a fair price. Some guys that I know in forums like Hawk even buy things for me, and recently I started helping some people from there making trades or simply buying things for them that they can't find there (chap mei).
About this case in particular. I was tracking 4 figures I managed to win all 4 of them. No way I was going to buy 1 only and pay $10 for shipping. As you guys said in some cases even some US ebayers charge you this. The problem with this guy is that he is making shipping price for 4 as if he was going to ship them one by one when in fact they will all come in one box or whatever. Resuming it doesn't really pay off to buy from this guy not in small or big amount he simply tries to bring his profit out of the shipping and I refuse that.
Besides all of these I've been trying to get a reply from him considering this shipping price and also why does Taiwan PO gives me a much cheaper price (less then half) but he doesn't reply me. Neither at ebay or his personal mail that comes in the invoice. Seems the account was canceled. This begins to sound very bad. Also if you look at his feedback he has several negative feedbacks, OK 100 in more then 7000 deals it's nothing but adding it to a suspended account can mean a lot.
As I said if no answer or explanation is given to me about this shipping quote I won't pay. He can leave me a negative and when he does that I will do the same. Besides after 20 Feb. he will have to prove every single $ for shipping. As far as I know you can't just ask $10 for shipping because you want too you have to prove (I still don't know how) that you spent $x for shipping and $y for the envelope/ box etc.....

Update on the situation. As you know I tried to contact this guy numerous times, and he never replied me. Yesterday he opened disputes on all 4 items. I immediately replied to them with what I described here. Explaining why I didn't pay yet and wanting some kind of justification from his side. If you notice he has the same items with buy it now option with a cheaper shipping $6 some times.
Anyway without no surprise to me he didn't answer to the first 2 replies I made simply strike me out. The other 2 he strike me today with a small message, "I made a discount nothing else I can do sorry". Not even told me the reason why the price is high which service mail I'm buying, tracking/no tracking, insurance/no insurance just as I requested.
This is on ebay's hands now but I don't know why not big faith on them. Once I lost money and no item was sent and ebay didn't do anything to the guy.... In this case we can say he only lost 1 deal because the other 3 figures had no additional bids. Besides he has the items so the list is minimum and if he wanted to have a shorter gain we could have solved this in the right way. One thing is certain I won't pay the $35 for shipping as he wants my limit is $18

It's actually quite common for Asian sellers to refuse to combine shipping, many state that in the auction.
There's a guy selling TF Animated figures out of Asia right now:
Buy IT Now $1.00
NO combined shipping.(even though if 2 items are bought by the same buyer...they ship together in the same box)
It seems to be less regulated in Asia as far as circumventing eBay fees.
If you're considering buying out of Asia, or already have, don't expect a combined shipping rate...
Clearly, that's where they make their money.
