    Default Question about buying a Weiss schwarz booster box

    I notice that buying a booster box in any of the local shops in Singapore costs about 110-115sgd, but on hobby search and amiami they are about 15sgd cheaper w/o shipping (price varies)
    So bottom line: is it generally cheaper to get them online or locally?

    you already said without shipping. There's the shipping cost to factor in too.

    Even if it's really cheaper, you will have to go through the trouble of the online ordering procedures. Not to mention having a certian level of risks when dealing with online shopping. Risks such as flactuation of currency exchange, reliability of sales person and middleman(if there is) etc.

    Getting the cards local, on the other hand totally remove the risks associated with online shopping. (you can physically see/feel the goods, and also check for damages or broken seals)

    well, there are much more things you have to consider before purchasing the cards via online.

    If u SAL it, it will normally be cheaper... but SAL comes wif risks...
    If u EMS it, it will cost about the same anyway...

    why bother shipping when there's people like me with lots of cards to sell? lol.

    On a more serious note, it's dependant on what you're looking for too.

    thanks for the replies.
    i do support local retailers but im just paranoid that somehow they only sell the TDs and Boosters which do not have signed in them =/ they have some way of xraying or checking i dunno =x

    I'm trying to play ZnT but the non-existance of Booster boxes and few number players make getting the essential cards difficult. The only reason play it is because of a Signed Lousie card i cant seem to part with. I just SAL (unregistered) a booster box and hope it doesnt get lost on the way here.

    If it does i'll probably not buy online again.

    Paranoid?
    Simply throw in $$ and get one whole box of TD. I'm pretty sure the shop will hand over a sealed box. Boosters on the other hand is harder to get signs.

    As for ZnT, I understand your pain, such old titles are hard to get nowadays. Online is one of the best bet for these titles.

    Ask the guy with over a hundred sign cards from buying locally if there's any reason to be paranoid that the signs are all gone and see what he will tell you...

    Anyway, if you really must get a sign, just pay money for it directly lah...your chances with online are even less, at least locally a lot of the time you will know whether a chance even exists for a sign...
