    I just wished I was into buying these things when Amazon had it for $108. I'd jump if I saw one in low $100s

    Import tax? No, you shouldn't be paying any duty on this (well, possibly you should, in strictly legal terms, but as a practical matter it doesn't happen). And the USD $95 price includes postage ($80 for Grayskull, $14.95 for postage).

    JJJ is correct, that price is delivered. There is no import tax, gst or anything else. I ordered another one myself a couple of months ago.

    All Star Comics in Melbourne stock MOTU Origins, I've recently discovered. They have both Leech and Snout Spout in stock, $50 each.

    I'm getting a Leech sent along with my comics this week

    $50 I guess that's fair in the current market

    There are better prices out there ($35 for a deluxe), but only for pre-orders that I can see. I got tired of waiting

    I'm happy to pay $29+$9 - especially with a $5 eBay plus voucher. That isn't too bad as I've never seen em in a WA big W


    If the scalper is adding only $10 (and postage) - to me that's reasonable if it means I can get one and not wait weeks/months. Usually Mantenna goes for $50 at scalp prices - I got mine for $35 after voucher (from another seller)

    If anyone sees the 200x He-Man and Skeletor out in the wild or online with the US card back, Iím on the look out. I cancelled my BBTS order as they are all the international version with no writing in the comic.

    All the ones on eBay in Oz seem to be the international version as well now.

    Ok, so I gave in an got sun man. Still doesn't do much for me. My daughter kept saying to just buy him. He was the last figure left at Toy Mate (besides the usual Skeletors). So meh, why not.




    Been a good fortnight



    Last two were orders from Turkey - worked out to about $35 landed each

    Confirmed that Grizzlor was orderable for everyone. I certainly heaved a sigh of relief as I placed the order and paid for international postage (to Australia); it was all too believable that Mattel would screw this up after everything that has happened so far (I even got a proper e-mail confirming my purchase, unlike Kol-Darr where I had to chase one).

    So yay, they've learnt and got it right. Well done Mattel. Now please open up the prior exclusives as made to orders...

    I did an online search and this store (haven't ordered from them) seem to have stock at a reasonable price:

    No, most of what they got in yesterday is still for sale (I think one, maybe two items may have sold out since I posted).

    And those are pretty standard prices for any shop that has to import these things themselves.

    I guess it's the extra shipping which kills it for me. The beast man lop looks good but not for another $10. They don't have anything I'm keen on to bundle into the shipping costs
