    Let me guess, that had only one of each, right? That's what I found in Mildura a month or so ago, and I've heard the same thing from other places. Have not seen or heard of any re-stock since, either.

    Score!!!
    Not a fan of that he-man and skeletor. I'd get them to trade with at that price

    Arrived. Was the 'Rise if Evil Set'. Unsure if I'll keep it or use it trade for something else. $51 (AUD) wasn't bad for it I think

    They actually had a bunch. I'd say two or three of each. It was really wild to see. And its why these are unpunched. They just stacked them on a shelf because there was no space left for them on the pegs.

    I snagged a Keldor and Kronos - $51 - from Amazon. The package was in so-so condition but I open anyways

    Hey Australian collectors, have any of you been able to place orders for Mekanek and Ground/Ripper 2-Pack?

    No. Has not yet appeared on Amazon AU, and is out of stock on the US site. Have not seen it listed anywhere else.


    ----

    Also, as it has not been mentioned here yet, Bulletproof Villain (one of a scant handful of retailers selling MOTU Origins within Australia) has gone out of business.

    Hopefully no one here had much on preorder with them

    I never bought from them but monitored their site hoping I'd be notified of stock.

    What other Aussie retailers are there with an online presence?

    So, for anyone wondering about ordering Eternia in Australia:

    USD $750 all up - $550 for the item, $200 for postage (which theoretically includes any duty that may apply). No Paypal option (it was there last week), so everything has to go on your credit card in one lump (which makes sense for a project where Mattel has to lock in the funding or it doesn't go ahead).

    At current conversion rates, that's somewhere around AUD $1200 (there's now a charge on my card for $1202.80, not sure if there's a foreign currency fee to come as well, probably is).

    And less than 5 hours in, it is almost 50% to funded. Which follows the usual crowdfunding curve - big initial interest, then it tapers off, and then in the last few days it surges again. I think it'll be funded easily (and thought so earlier), but I've no clue about it getting to 8000 or 10000 for the moat monster and Keclar.

    Oh thats shame.

    I bought a heap of the first batch of origins from them wave 1-3 or 4 all as pre orders. I was a little bummed with how they handled it, as it was placed in 1 order, they wouldn't send any figures until they were all in stock even though I offered to pay shipping for the different batches...even still its a real shame another small business as gone under.

    Na. Price is ridiculous and I wouldn't have the room to spare. Also not a fan of the King Grayskull figure

    Thatís huge money to spending and Iím really sitting on the fence to buy an Eternia. Mondo is forcing my hand with the release of Battlecat later this month. On another note I was wondering around Toyworld and picked up a grayskull.

    Anybody that has ordered eternia, keep in mind that if you are ordering more than one on the same order it may be held by customs when it ships and you may need to pay further taxes for it to be released to you as it’s over 1000$.

    Not bad. I'm eyeing it off Amazon. Nothing like buying in a store though. Congratulations on your find.

    Let us know what you think of it after you open it. If it's worth the $$$

    All Star Comics in Melbourne just got in Teela & Zoar. Will be a bit steep ($79.95 with postage, about $5 less if you chuck it into your comics order if you have one), but they're the only place in Australia with stock just now, and most other places with pre-orders seem to be asking a similar amount. And it'll cost more to have it posted from the US.

    I just bought Whiplash and mini-comic Trap-Jaw from Minotaur in Melboure. Expensive ($46 each), but the postage was free.

    That's not too bad actually.

    I'm patiently waiting for more items to hit my pile of Loot before I ship them from the US. I'm really eager to have Wave 11 in hand.
