Online Vendors:

http://www.coolstuffinc.com/: the big guy on the block, great selection, free shipping with order of $100 or more, good customer service, some of the lowest prices out there, never (or very rarely) run good sales, popular, so product runs out quickly, note: later during the holiday season it can be very hard to find titles you may want, website not the easiest to navigate, no help if you do not know what you are looking for
http://www.miniaturemarket.com/: a new emerging contender for the top crown, prices comparable to coolstuffinc., free shipping with order of $99 or more, occasionally better selection than coolstuffinc., good customer service
https://www.funagain.com/control/main: great selection and very easy to navigate, prices can be a little higher than other online vendors, great customer service
