and people complain that Michael Bay destroys their childhood dreams of transformers? that just did far more damage. creepy as hell. but i love the idea of the fat controller as a headmaster.

I've been eyeing these for my boy as well. I can get for the following AUD shipped:

$55 for 2 = $28ea
$73 for 3 = $24ea
$92 for 4 = $23ea
and so on...

My 4yo son and 3yo daughter both want transformers now - this is probably the kind of thing i've been looking for.

Crab wanted me to do this a long time ago, but I'm just way too lazy to organise it.

I can get these for really really cheap in China (origin of manufacture),

How it would work is I will order it and get it shipped to beijing and mum/dad would bring over a box of them on their next holiday to sydney.

Can you guys be bothered to wait 1-3 months? Dad is actually coming over in about 6 days, but I'm not sure I can get the order and everything through by then. I don't need pre-payment etc, I can just hock it on ebay if there is not much interest here.

It will cost between 7-10 aud each. Don't expect much in terms of quality though, as it is a hell cheap toy.

Also of worthy note is that as far as I know there is at least 4-5 different packaged versions out there.

Here is some examples:

I'm interested. Would you be able to get different types? I want to buy transformers for my kid, but not expensive ones that he might break >_<

Double standards here guys.

I'm sure this knocks off Thomas the tank engine I.P.

Yes, as hilarious as it is, I think we need to have another think about this.

These aren't replicas of existing toys. This is no different to a mass produced fan made custom. That's already being discussed here (http://www.otca.com.au/boards/showthread.php?t=5212)

Jgon, I'm interested, happy to wait 1-3 months and don't care about packaging. Cheers.

Same. I'll grab one, although I wouldn't recommend them for kids with the toxic, lead-based paints that have likely gone into them.
