    Default Online sightings (Australian companies)

    Saw that The Little Toy Company on eBay has both Battle Core OP and Menasor on their storefront.

    Confirmed with them that Menasor is of the 5xxxx production code, so they have the revised hips.

    Previously ordered Wave 4 CW (Optimus Maximus limbs) from them (among a fair amount of other stuff) and am happy to recommend them - quick responses to specific questions (such as the product code).

    Ships from Melbourne and I believe has local pickup as an option.

    For people that want to take advantage of the BigW sale:

    Cash Rewards currently has an offer to buy (legit) bigw gift cards from the wollies website for 92 cts on the dollar.

    So if you're planning to buy victorion and fort max, you could save an additional $32 on top of the price sale.

    You need to register but you can just delete the account once you receive your gift card.

    Just used one to save an extra $8 off victorion, it's a bit finicky to use but just tell the cashier you want to use an e-gift card.

    Totally took advantage of this. Bought a $200 egift card for $184. Took about 3 hours once paid to get the email. Used staff discount to chop 12.45 off the 249 bringing him to 236.55. That took Fort Max down to 36.55 left against my savings. Total spent=220.55.

    The original saving of $16 from the online sale makes it slightly more expensive that Mightyape's current sale on him (249-16=233 compared to 229 inc postage); you just have to wait til next week for them to ship.

    If you purchase a 250 egift card for 230 (8% off = saving $20), then you're paying 229 for Fort Max which is the matching of Mightyape.

    My staff discount regardless would've made him 236.55. Had I bought a 250 egift card instead, I would've been left with 13.45 on the egift card. Buuut that meant that I would have to spend $46 (230-184) more which I don't really have this week. But I'd be saving (36.55-(46-13.45))=$4 in the whole.

    Without discount;
    If you had a 200 egift card (184), then you're also paying 49 extra, saving that initial 16 from the deal. Total spent=233.
    If you had a 250 gift card (230), you've got $1 left on the card, and you've saved 30. Total spent=230. Plus your $1 left. 229 really.
    Which is your $4 (4/50 = 8%) difference in how you choose to buy your egift cards.

    But seriously. Take advantage of that egift card thing.

    If this advertising? Or just convoluted maths?

    AND:
    MyerOne has a 10% off. If you can get them to price match, you can take that 249 down to 224.1 (if the 10% can be done with the sale?)

    Too much maths for my head to even consider working it out. Well done on finding a cheaper price this early after release.

    Post Minotaur Entertainment (SIEGE toyline)

    According to the Minotaur website, these are the listed items they have available for mail order:

    Jetfire
    Siege Deluxe Wave 1 case
    Siege Leader Wave 1 case
    Voyager Wave 1 case

    I spoke to the Minotaur Mail Order department directly and while they did not give me an exact price for Jetfire, they said he would be over 100 AUD due to USD>AUD exchange rates and shipping.

    And yes, I've already placed my Jetfire preorder.

    Considering Minotaur was selling RoT deluxes $45 while they were on the shelf at Kmart and Big W I can't see these flying off the shelves..

    In Jetfire's case, I wanted to make absolutely sure I got one and the best way to do that is to lock in a preorder with a company who will guarantee I will get the toy with minimal complications.

    The Big W and Kmart near me have none of these larger toys yet, but that may just because the shipping is delayed for unknown reasons.

    I find minotaur better off for stuff I have a hardtime getting stuff from anywhere else, price wise they're a bit too high especially for transformers.

    Amazon is my current go-to but if worse comes to worse I suspect myers will be the go to, unless big w pull something special off for the toy sale they may do later in the year as they seem to do
