Default What last-minute tax-free foreign purchases have you made?

Tomorrow is the last day we can buy things from overseas and not be charged GST... so what sort of things (and from where) have you bought in the last few weeks to beat the tax?
(you can mention non-TFs, but try to include something TF related)

For me, I did the rounds at a few of my regular sources... some probably for the last time.

Amazon America (3rd party sellers) - Studio Series Thundercracker, TR Ramhorn, Hero Mashers RID Optimus.

Universal Studios online store - Cyber Battalion Starscream, Universal exclusive Snarl.

HLJ - SWTF Millenium Falcon, JP Legends Overlord.

OhMyPrimus - JP Legends Greatshot

TakaraTomyMall (through WhiteRabbitExpress shipping forwarder) - JP Movie Laserbeak (pink Bumblebee)

I still want to do a last look over Amazon and Ebay tomorrow... but that will probably be it.

I ordered an upcoming volume of Lost Light and the next TF IDW Collection volume (and a bunch of upcoming X-Men collections) from Bookdepository. Might have a look on ebay now.

List may expand later on today.

Caution, meet the wind. I just bit the bullet on MP Dirge from BBTS. I figured it's now or never.

With my (1 item - Wave 3 POTP Scouts) pile of loot chucked in the parcel.

Yeah, I grabbed a few things, partially due to good sales and partially due to a certain sense of **** You Gerry Harvey & Friends.

Maketoys Quantron set (~70% off clearance sale) and MMC Anarchus - had been after both for quite a while.
Steam games - Bayonetta for PC (also ~70% off) and the now-very-old Jedi Academy (60% sale) which I really enjoyed back in the day. I'm playing through Jedi Academy now and it's as fun as I remember.

I didn't order any Transformers, but I grabbed this years birthday and Xmas presents for my Mum from Amazon US a few days ago.
