Default Buying from mrtoys.com

I want to buy a Human Alliance Basic Drag Strip from the Mr Toys Toyworld website, but the listing says that the figures are randomly assorted. Does that mean If I order from them, they will send me a HA Basic figure chosen at random, and would it be worthwhile if so?

Here's the listing: http://www.mrtoys.com.au/?Action-Fig...sst;Item;10430

I would suggest that you cannot guarantee which you will recieve.

I'd also look at some reviews for those figures before buying them unless you are completing a set/collection.

Have you asked them if they're able to select that particular one for you? I know it says random but it wouldn't hurt.

Okay I just discovered you can make special orders on their website, but first you have to send an inquiry, which I've just done now.

Just heard back from them. They said that they can't sell specifics from random assortments. Oh well, guess it's back to good ol' eBay for me.

Because it's so hard to look at a name when you pull it out of a box.

Well their exact words were:

"Thanks for your enquiry with Mr Toys Toyworld. Unfortunately we are unable
to sell specifics as when we receive a shipment from the supplier the
assortment changes so we are unable to determine what ones in the assortment
we have currently got in stock."

So yeah, having a look at the names in the box really is too hard for them.
