    Default Masterpiece Sunstreaker

    With the impending release of MP Hound I thought I better catch up and get myself an MP Sunstreaker since I missed out on release. If anyone has one they are selling at a good price (or sees one somewhere) let me know, other wise I will wait for the inevitable re-issue.
    Thanks for any help.
    Cheers, Ken

    Buying direct from Amazon JP is a no-go thanks to the GST laws.

    Of course using a shipping forwarder should be fine.

    Oh yeah, the forwarder is going to charge GST. I just meant that Amazon JP has blocked us from buying direct from them (no shipping to AU addresses because of the GST laws), and the only way around that is using a forwarder.

    Thanks for the help everyone but its up near $200 AUD for most of them which is more than I would like to pay for an MP car. Postage is a killer. I reckon I will just wait for a re-issue or one to come up in Aus.

    He simply has a high retail price... I don't recall exactly how much I paid, but it was above $150 from HLJ.


    LF:

    - MyClone Dirge
    - Blue Microchange MC-04 (02) Familia 1500XG (that's the pre-TF Bumblejumper)
    - G2 Grimlock (turquoise or silver)
    - Car Robots Indy Heat
    - Beast Wars Dinobot
    - Unite Warriors Strafe

    Yeah, MP39's RRP is 12960JPY (approx. $163). Mine was about $150 too with preorder discount from HLJ.

    Still, that RK one for $125 is actually below RRP. It is an expensive MP Car but that's because the level of engineering on this toy is nuts and, IMO, worth the price of admission.

    Yeah RK is where I am leaning, if I can get someone to split the postage it will be much more attractive.

    From HLJ with discount, MP-39 was ¥9,600. A$1 was around ¥87 near MP-39's release date in late December 2017.

    At that exchange rate, MP-39 would have cost around A$115 with currency conversion fee of 5% included. The ¥810 shipping was around A$10 with currency conversion of 5% included.

    Therefore, MP-39 would have cost $125 shipped from HLJ in December 2017.
