Default POTP Predaking now in stock at Amazon Australia

Still looking for POTP Predaking?
Can't find it in any of the local retailers because it is still only in some Toyworld stores so far?
Well, it looks like Amazon Australia have it in stock in Australia, for AU$260, with free shipping if you are an Amazon Prime Member.

(or get the American version for AU$245 with free Prime Member shipping, as it is one of the US items now available through Amazon Australia... but it will take an extra two weeks to get to you - and shipping will be more if you aren't a Prime member)
https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B079VNNGM5


Also, Amazon Australia have POTP Nemesis Prime in hand for AU$100 as well.
https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B07DHX3LX1


Plus, the three Prime Wars Trilogy toys are now available to Amazon Australia customers for about AU$39 each, shipped from America from Amazon...
PWT-1 Blast Off
https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B077YYP738
PWT-2 Repugnus
https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B0785P78QD
PWT-3 Counterpunch
https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B077ZBCPDV


(this is not a paid advertisement by amazon, nor are they being endorsed here as the cheapest option - this is just an alert to fans here of another source for Predaking... and the recent Amazon exclusive Generations toys that will not be at retail here)

Just noting - the US listing for Predaking has just gone on sale at 10% off, so the Australian import price through Amazon Australia is currently AU$230... which would be a great price if you are a Prime Member (free shipping).

Just a note that Prime costs $5 for a month, so it's a no-brainer to just sign up, order and then cancel (you'll still get Prime for the month, but cancelling will ensure you don't get charged at the end of the month to continue). That way, you get free shipping on any order over $49 for Prime eligible items (which should be everything from Aus or US Amazon listed on Aus Amazon).

Most people should be considering signing up for a 12 month Prime subscription in December anyway.

The price will go up in the new year and this way you lock it down for the cheap price.

In addition to free shipping, you also gain access to their streaming service, unlimited kindle books and a percentage of their music service.

Seems like a no-brainer to me and something I'll be considering.

Unless you can't wait a couple of weeks for Predaking you should wait till the 23rd to order him. That is when Black Friday falls this year which is one of the days Amazon does big sales.

Also the Australian stock of Predaking has jumped to $271.35, so waiting on US stock to ship here is probably a better option since it's currently over $40 price difference.

I've also noticed that the Studio Series Bumblebee Helmet is in stock at Amazon Australia (as Australian stock), for $112... which didn't end up at any retailer here, but has shown up in New Zealand, America and Asia for a few months now.

Predaking has now been sighted at a couple of Myer stores, which is another option (depending on the price)... which is still a very limited release, with just Toyworld, Amazon and Myer after almost half a year since it was released globally.


I couldn't find it on the Myer website yet, but they did have the Voice Changer masks for $65 each, which includes the remoulded Sqweeks mask that removes the battle damage of the TF5 mask.

Current price on Amazon au right now is $271.03 so it has gone up a little and no "black friday" sale at the moment.

Vaguely recall someone mentioned a dude from Armoured Heaven said POTP Predaking wasnít getting a domestic release. Good to hear itís rolling out to national retailer.
