Not many places. The only in-US place that comes to mind is Big Bad Toy Store. HOWEVER, they have to import like the rest of us, and have high prices as a result.

Are you serious? Darn. I've mosty been using amazon... but the prices have recently greatly increased... Got spoon merienda as a gift for $40 around a year ago... Now she's $70. Christ.

Sadly, I might get one anyways but..., Is Sharatang really worth $80? Also... Is Angolz trustworthy? Do they ship from the U.S?

There are a few eBay dealers, too, but their prices are unlikely to be substantially better. Try to buy multiple figures at once, so the shipping isn't as terrible.

ETA: Also, check AmiAmi. They're in Japan, IIRC, but will also ship to the USA.

I didn't mention any of those because the request was for in-US sellers that weren't eBay.

$80 isn't terrible for Sharatang... that pair were kinda expensive anyway.

Actually, with the way the exchange rates are, they're about even currently, I think...
