Sometimes, if it's not a custom item, you can find the cases on Amazon Prime. That's how I got my 1720... same price as on the Battlefoam website, but free and fast shipping...

To be fair - shipping is ridiculous these days.

You can't expect a company to eat the shipping cost because the box required to send foam in needs to be large - I tried free shipping with my eBay auctions for a while and in most cases the shipping cut so deeply into my profits that I felt I had wasted my time.

In general shipping is expensive. It is the one thing I like about the GW webstore - they offer free shipping at 65 dollars. Does Battlefoam have free shipping if you spend a certain amount?

I know the whiz carries their foam. Ask if they can put in an order next time and have it shipped to them then drive there and pick it up.

I could even pick it up at the Whiz for you - save you a half hour of traveling.

I might take you up on that. I have the pressing need for some foam for some Ork stuff. Let me look around the site and figure out what I need and I will post it up.

Thanks!

Stuff arrived today. Will get it down to you as soon as possible. I'm going to be in the Boston/Cambridge area Saturday not sure where you're at but if you can meet off of 93 I can do the hand off. If that doesn't work maybe I can get it to Ian and he can bring to the Eagles.
