Instead of lobbying the government these dinosaurs should pay attention and change their business model if they want to remain competitive. They may even find that by attracting more customers, including international, to a well organised and maintained website the additional cash would help to subsidise their brick and mortar stores. Then they get the best of both worlds and increase their customer base.

Lowered prices or not, I'm not gonna buy anything from his range of stores... that's for sure.
He can kiss my XXXX
We've taken steps backwards as a country.
Rather than adapt and think of innovative ways to boost sales, they block the competition completely... giving the consumers here significantly fewer choices.
Really ticks me off.

Gerry Harvey only likes the "free market" when it's tilted in his direction.

Use a shipping forwarder. Yes it's a little more expensive to forward items but at least you don't miss out on the figure.

FYI folks, the exclusive Punch/Counterpunch is now available to ship to Australia via this link.

https://www.amazon.com.au/gp/product/B077ZBCPDV/

Will ship for free if you total more than $50 (buy 2?)

For those who have shipping forwarders or a friend in the US, the Prime Wars Trilogy toys are back in stock - Blast Off - Repugnus - Counterpunch (still pre-order for SEPT 15th, but available through Amazon Australia anyway), for US$25 each.
Plus, Nemesis Prime is no longer an Amazon Prime exclusive, so can now be purchased by everyone (if you can ship to an American address) for US$50.
And if you are worried that we won't see wave 4 Deluxe Novastar here, it is now on Amazon America as well, for US$17, to be released in three days time. Obviously a lot of Americans fear the same, as it has already hit number one, on the top sellers listing for Action Figures.
