Is it worth buying from there or are you better off using online shops/ebay?

It's worth checking out online prices. Import prices are expensive. The shop's in Haymarket btw so you could just walk over and check it out yourself. Aw heck, at their inflated prices I guess not many people would be wanting to scalp from them - it's Modellers World.

Thanks Gok, I'll check it out soon when I'm passing through C-town. I'll just go for the browse as they would be very expensive.

I think the prices will pretty much be in line with other non-specialist stores like Dymocks, i.e. very expensive.

Milton Toy Shop (about 10 minutes up the road from Ulladulla, heading towards Sydney) had the new Legends, both 25th anniversary and Animated, as well as the next wave of Activators: Dirge, Grimlock, Megatron and Bandit Lockdown.
Since it is a private store, prices are more expensive, the LEgends are $9 each, the activators $23.

Missed out on checking Uncle Pete's at Nowra who are often pretty good as they do not do late night Thursday trading.

Kmart Mt Druitt had the standard fare, finally getting in Swoops and Sentinel Primes, still had over a dozen Animated Twin packs, and 3 S.E. Megatrons.

Were selling off the Screen packs cheap, cannot remember the price, and they were also advertising the Optimus and Bumblebee 2 packs for a sale price, but could not find a single pack.

And strangely the Mt Druitt Kmart is opening for longer hours, from 8-midnight during the week and till 7pm on the weekend...anyone else have a local store opening longer hours?

K-Mart Broadway has a row-thick wall of Ultra Magnus (Ultra Magnuses? Ultra Magni?) which have been there since December, and some Commander Cody SWTFs. There's also a big 3-pack of Starscream, Arcee, and Optimus Prime that was aroun in November. Evidently they couldn't sell it, put it away, and have now dragged it out in case anyone wants to buy three toys for about $200.

Ultra Magnus is beginning to annoy me, since it's occurred to me that, while loads of him are sitting on the shelf unsold, new product (read: Grimlock) isn't going to be restocked anytime soon.

Big Ws Rockdale & Miranda have some of the newer SWTFs - although none have all three. Rockdale had Grevious (I nabbed it) and still has (as of yesterday) the Tie Bomber and the Yellow Ring-Fighter. Miranda has the ring fighter.

Not much else in St George/Sutherland Shire, although I didn't check Menai.
