    Default Uncle Pete's Online

    Haven't seen this mentioned anywhere, but I thought I'd post it to give everyone a heads up!

    Seems since TRU announced it was bowing out, a few of the smaller stores have started to go online, and the (last?) Uncle Pete's in Dubbo (of all places) has followed suit.

    Prices are RRP but they have Afterpay, free shipping over $100 and don't do 'random picks' :P I just bought Optimal from them (I'd rather pay now and get now than have to wait for a pre-order #pcfail even if it's not cheaper), they have some Cyberverse (truth be told I bought the Warrior OP to make up to the free shipping point lol) but also a decent selection of LEGO too.

    This is such a good idea for the smaller retailers in regional areas, I know that the effort of setting up has its costs, but if they get an assortment of a certain wave that no where else gets or is in low demand in their location and high elsewhere then collectors can source the items they are after and support Australian businesses that might have otherwise had to heavily discount unwanted deadstock.
    The later it gets, the less sense I will make (usually anything beyond 19:30 Qld time).

    Agreed! Very happy to pay to support these kind of businesses!
    Also seems Primal has sold out since this morning so

    I can't see any pictures when looking at their site on my work machine, I guess it's something to do with our security settings.

    I search transformers and can't see any names or pictures.

    it is a great idea though, can't be anything wrong with a bit more competition.

    Looks like they have Siege leader class and Battlemasters available on their website.

    Their WFC prices are pretty good, compared to Toyworld.... $80 for Leaders and $10 for Battlemasters.
