    Amazon has a world wide box smash guarantee, it's in the small print.

    I was just looking up the MP-36 Megatron release date on Amazon (April 1st) and noticed that it ships to Australia... Works out to about $200 + shipping (which is usually very fast and cheap).
    Which brings us to where we are today...

    So I guess this whole release is one big April fools joke? Knew v2 Megatron was too good to be true.

    You do know he's a gun right? Customs stole/confiscated the previous Megatron, and unless you had a replica weapons permit license would not return it. Even WITH that permit they didn't release it until the day BEFORE they had to front to a magistrate.

    It's much safer buying it online from an Australian retailer like PC who ARE in Queensland and can import it hassle free
    On the lookout for MISB Headmaster Highbrow, Takara or Hasbro. I'm sure I could make you a sweet deal!

    Yep, lived through it, and I do have a replica license.

    Even though Amazon Japan stopped selling to Australian addresses after the GST changes a couple years ago (and still don't sell to us, despite Amazon America altering their systems to sell us again), I've just noticed that the Amazon Japan site won't show items that they themselves can't ship to your country (based on your IP location if you aren't logged in). So I had to enter in a Japanese postal address (100-0400 Tokyo) to let me do a search, just to see what future items are listed, so that I can do up one of the toy listings.
