My Dark Energon Deluxes arrived from Kapow today too...30mins after I left for work. Seeing if I can get them tomorrow at the depot. Hope they're in good condition, sorry to hear about the problems SWG.
Chris, I've used Kapow for some time. I find they're usually pretty good, but have recently been making most of my purchases from TFSource. Despite the latter being US based, the prices after shipping for most things still tend to be less than the pre-postage costs from Kapow. Also, bigger selection and a Pay Later option for pre-orders make it much better for me, for the majority of things. Much nicer browsing experience also.
Kapow are good though. Whenever I've had problems they've been great (a partial refund for a figure with two right hands, and a freebie when something I'd ordered was still showing in stock on the site when it'd been sold out earlier) and their communication is pretty good. Some good bargains occasionally also. I don't really like shopping around all that much, and Kapow being UK based was a big plus for me, but TF Source have a bigger inventory, and as I say, their website is much more user-friendly. I've been alternating recently. Also worth checking out Kapow's ebay site as they usually run auctions on a selection of things and you can save a fair bit off their normal prices, or get stuff that's coming to the end of their stock.
