Sideshow has a nice little program where you can pay for their higher priced items in two, three or four installments. They just debited my final payment on the Joker the other day. And you do get points that add up for cash off on items. However, they have been giving free shipping on the Hot Toys figures when you pre-order and they won't let you use points with the free shipping.
Most of the on-line stores don't charge tax unless you live in the same state where it ships from because there is no tax on interstate commerce. You are supposed to pay the tax with your income taxes, but few do. Congress is also trying to change the laws on this because sales tax isn't collected on most e-commerce transactions. But any such law would probably be challenged in the Supreme Court, though. It's one of the reasons I buy most of my books and DVDs and records from Amazon.
Congrats! I picked up the Mark III BD a while back myself; haven't displayed it yet, I'm waiting for the Iron Monger to be released so I can display them together!

I forgot that HT was going to do the Spidey from the 3rd movie. I have a set of Medicom's RAH versions from that flick. Does anybody care about those anymore?
