Hmm-well considering that the RNC JUST wrapped up and all hope is not gone from America recovering and returning back to it's glory days.........
But I think that was the introductory price.

Once again, i waited to long to get somthing. 9.99 as very reasonable but 14.99 is way to high,that along with the high s+h i dont think i'll be buying these.

Bunch of bastards. Those are nice cases too. I bought 10 to try them out and was planning on getting 40-50 more, but I don't think I will now, at that price. Screw hasbro. I am as big of a fan of the 25th stuff as anyone (I have over 350 of the figures), but I am getting burned out and really really tired of one price increase after another.

It was a bigass box, and from this lone experience, HTS did a great job packing. The carded figures (comic wave 5, 2-packs) were slightly warped, but I don't think it was from the actual shipping. But I found a better set in-store anyways. Was hoping on the black-headed Destro, but I'll probably be returning what I don't want to open, and keeping 1 set for carded.
The cases, at $1.00 per, is a decent deal. But who is buying these in small numbers? My goal was to buy 1 set, see how they were shipped and if they arrived damaged or not, and then buy more.
$1/case was a decent deal, but seeing how I need about 100 of these bastards eventually, I'm not paying an extra $50 when it was going to be $100 plus shipping beforehand. That's where the price increase is going to screw them over. Okay, I'll give in and pay the 10-50 cent increases on the figures, those don't bother me. But when you start charging 50% increases on what boils down to flimsy plastic cases with a stamped logo, sorry.
The cases DO come in a Rescue-Doc styled white box. For presentation, they get an A. haha. Too bad they raised the prices, or else I would be buying at least 40 more cases from them.

I never had a problem with the HST tracking numbers.
The problem is most likely the USPS unit isnt scanning the barcodes. This happens alot, because they have to scan it at every pick up, transport and ending location. You can get delivery/tracking online but if they dont scan it, it wont activate.
