    I saw that - ouch on the postage but overall fair I'd say.

    Does anyone know if tradeinn is legit and safe?

    Keep an eye on this thread for future arrangements.
    Ah thank you.

    Is there a website which shows watch wave is being released (and was, historically) when? I'm still very new to this.
    Mainly after Origins 5.5' figures.

    Hi there, I recently created this thread that gives a list of the Waves and rough timeline:

    So was that Roton from Amazon UK for over $100? At the moment I'm waiting for it to turn up somewhere else. Anywhere else, really...

    Yes, thank you. I haven't seen someone pack something so well Nd securely! I haven't opened him up yet and think I might wait for my Koldarr to arrive (it's on its way).

    I ordered them in the UK from a smaller online retailer and got both for $120 and delivered to a friend buuuut when my friend shipped it to me it cost another $70 (customs etc) so it didn't end up being as cheap as I wanted :/

    Bought there before. You might have to pay import tax depending where you live.

    I have now seen two reports of Origins wave 9 (yes, the very latest one that is still selling for silly money out of Singapore because it isn't properly out in the US yet) being stocked at Big W (one at Marion SA, the other at Sunshine Vic). There is still no sign of any Origins stuff (except the Battlecats they haven't been able to shift for almost a year now...) on the Big W website.

    Has anyone anywhere else seen anything? I check Big W Mildura on Saturday and found nothing.

    I've used them. They're a little slow, packed OK but not amazing. They are not dodgy imo.

    I've yet to see one for less than $70-ish, and that low is still rare.

    Thanks. I was surprised too. But I'm gonna open it..... or maybe I should keep it packaged. My 5 year old daughter does love playing with my MOTU figures - supervised (she already scraped paint off Super7 Hordak).


    Here is one that's cheap than $70. But preorder
    https://www.bulletproofvillain.com.a...SABEgI8wfD_BwE

    I saw a Sun Man for $19 in a toy shop. Stupid stupid stupid me did not buy it. Sun man does nothing for me. It didn't occur to me I could have used him to trade for one I wanted.

    Open it and play with it. Always the answer. Otherwise, what's the point?

    I have seen that pre-order at Bulletproof Villain (and the same at Mad Zombie). Not keen on pre-orders for Origins stuff (for reasons that will see a very lengthy post one of these days). I did buy what seems to have been their last Snout Spout on Monday (because it was listed as in stock when I bought, and was then out of stock the next day), but right now I'm unwilling to do anything more with them until my order at least changes from "pick" to "sent" and I get a tracking number (and they make any sort of effort to answer my query about this from Friday)...

    Just grabbed all four wave 9 toys from Big W Mildura. Looks very much like they received only a single case. All the items scanned as the same thing, and they're still not on Big W's web site.

    Bear in mind that Ozgameshop is not an Australian vendor; they operate out of the UK, have inventory scattered across multiple warehouses, and will not provide tracking (they flatly refuse, even though it exists).

    That said, I did find them useful earlier this year in obtaining some Origins toys that I could not find elsewhere. I just wasn't at all impressed by them or their customer service.

    Flip! Castle Grayskull went up by heaps.

    It was about $150 last week or so, now almost $180.
    https://www.amazon.com.au/Masters-Un...qid=1660635846
    Prime day it was $108

    Does anyone know what this is?
