I will use the China website to buy them, especially for the last few waves. normally as per everyone said, the first 3 waves are ok, sometimes you might have discount depends on the stores, however for the last few waves, they are extremely hard to get here in Australia.

I've seen people use it, but was unsure if their international shipping was easy to use and up to scratch. Seems like a really great option though.

I'm gonna start from local retail and see how I go from there. I'm rapidly losing faith in Australian online retailers. -_-

Little faith in brick-and-mortar local retailers. I've already preordered the wave 1 Dinobots (from Oz online retailer).

I enjoy the hunt finding at the store than paying for something and waiting months and just getting it. Generally through the sales at target, big w you can get at a decent price. In recent years i picked up everything i wanted at retail.

In recent months for example picked up a blitzwing early on at kmart, you get that little buzz when you find something new. Even trypticon for the clearance price on weekend. I may even enjoy the hunt, more than the figure sometime.

I do agree... the hunting is the best part.
Was on holiday in Asia last week and POTP was everywhere.
The dinobots strangely didn't appeal to me... I saw starscream and boy was he a step backwards IMO.
Lots of cheap and nasty looking stickers on the figure.

Say, where did you find Tryppie for cheap?
Mine hasn't been delivered by the store that shall not be named so I'm looking for one now.

Yep. It's all about the thrill of the hunt. Ordering means one doesn't get to keep the rest of the Ozformers community up to date on the retail front.
