    For anyone who could not obtain 200x He-Man or Skelly when Big W had them in (ever so briefly), All-Star Comics in Melbourne has some (but regrettably not the rest of the wave).


    They are considerably cheaper on eBay at the moment then the 40$ before shipping all star comics is asking for them.

    Did anyone get a second Camo Khan?

    I'm primarily after a flared head but happy to buy the whole figure if you don't want to split it.

    Toyworld just got in wave 10, for $25 each. Bought Randor, Digitino, Trap Jaw & Whiplash this morning. Postage was $15.

    There's someone on e-bay with a bunch of wave 11 in Queensland (only selling as the whole wave of 4). A bit more expensive than Toyworld's prices, but I don't expect Toyworld to have wave 11 for a few months yet, seeing as they only just got wave 10 in. I'm giving it a go - they're still cheaper than over 50% of my Origins purchases

    Count me in mate. The last couple of times though I have set my alarm for the countdown, when I go to order there is another hour to go. Not sure whatís going on there.



    Everyone also probably allready has them but yesterday at big w fountain gate there were 7 or 8 each of pig head, mantenna, 200x skeletor and he-man at 21$

    Ground Ripper & Mekanek can now be purchased from Amazon US via Amazon AU, and for a pretty good price, too (and is above the free postage threshold).

    Toy Empire has Thunder Punch He-Man in stock right now. Postage is a killer; $15 minimum, unless you can find something else to buy to get over the $100 threshold for free postage. King Hiss and Ground Ripper, which were due at the same time and which I hoped to use to get over that threshold, have been pushed back to April.

    Thunder Punch He-Man is also available on Amazon AU (from Amazon US), but is one of those "usually ships within 2 weeks" items, so I decided against it this time. $45 and maybe never being actually in stock is not a good deal to me; not when I can get it from within the country for only $20 more.

    So, anyone have experience with BBTS? What can you tell me? The price of postage would be the most important thing, I suspect...

    Catch is having a flash sale; both Castle Greyskulls are available for $75.

    Avalan Kids keeps getting one new Snake Trooper in.

    Now, if they got three in at once (and I honestly can't think of a reason for why they are putting them up as single increments to stock every few hours), I'd snap them up and cancel my Amazon order (cos I want three). As it is, this is just irritating.

    -edit-

    I asked about it today, and they're doling them out individually so that nobody can snap up the whole stock at once - apparently they get complaints when that happens. Fair enough, I had not realised that people would send messages like that to e-bay sellers . They did offer to list more for me, but as I'm after three Snake Troopers and they had only two left at that time (one of which has now sold, so they've got a maximum of one left that'll go up for sale presently), I declined. Nice of them to offer, though

    Toy Empire has pushed King Hisss back to September. I don't think this one's coming to Australia after all.
