Hello. Im experimenting with ordering from war store and want to control shipping. So is there anyway i can see how much a particular piece weighs with box? For example stormblades unit box, kayleesa blister, etc etc. knowing beforehand would really help me plan purchases because i know how much im paying for shipping. For instance in another website im ordering from they specified that a booster box of zendikar weighs 2.4 pounds.

are you in the US? the war store has a notice on their web site that says they only charge $5.95 for orders going to the US. http://www.thewarstore.com/Shipping.html

Philippines. Tho id imagine a box of invictors weighs the same here than in any other country. So is there any place where i can check the weight of the boxes? Like for example in another site it was specified that zendikar booster box weighs 2.4 pounds so i know how much im going to be hit with in shipping.

Different countries have different geographical distances from New York state. :)
I'm busy today, but if no one has provided anything by tonight I'll try weighing some of my stuff to give you an aproximation.

From the Philippines, it might be worth looking into Defiant Gaming in Australia. They're good with prices, but not sure of shipping internationally. But since you're not far away from our shores, I imagine it'd be a bit cheaper than shipping across the Pacific.
Just email them with any questions. They're good at getting back to you.

Maelstrom games says free shipping around the world!!! is this true? Has anyone tried them out?
Warstore is really cheap but due to shipping charges i had to pay an extra 50% so it ended up not being as cheap as i thought it would be.

Maelstrom games says free shipping around the world!!! is this true? Has anyone tried them out?Yes.
I've used them, it's why I suggested them.
(they're the go-to online retailer around these parts)
I find sit around the same price as defiant gaming (but NZ has special shipping prices with defiant).
Also, Maelstrom has multiple currencies that you can choose from, some of which work out event cheaper.

Maelstrom games has free delivery. That does not mean you won't get slapped with a massive cutom's tax. Best to check your country's policies before shipping in.

yeh thats 12% in my country. At least thats what they charged me when i ordered from warstore. Will try maelstrom soon. Free Shipping!!! Droolz!

hmmm upon further consideration it seems maelstrom games sells thier products at 20-30% more than warstore does so it comes down to shipping again. Sigh i wish warstore provided free shipping.
