Ive been told to pre order anyway and request for them to look at the postage before it gets released and then they will manually alter the cost of the postage, this is one character im not messing around with lol

Yeah I saw that price, and agree with OP - I've seen a lot of chat about it maybe being a placeholder price and that his weight was listed at 10lb?!!!

I just went to his page and it says he's the #1 seller in action figures, and read at TFW2005 that Blast Off (really want him too) was sold out quickly.

I could have got Repugnus and then P/CP from Amazon, but both had this stupid $70NZ postage charge..
So I'll wait and see what happens ..

They've fixed the shipping on the 2 now. Now what do I do with my pre-order of Punch I did with the expensive one lol, will have to contact Amazon I guess.

Thanks for the heads up

Even though Punch now has a weight of 4.8oz, he is about $5NZ cheaper to post than Repugnus who has the same weight.

Even though I could have saved $$ ordering together I thought it would be better to do separate orders for each, that way they are not held up


I would cancel your more expensive orders .. no point paying more and then stuffing around with customer services ..

I now see why P/CP looks like it was cheaper; because the arrival date is "in the future" Amazon are not offering automatic currency conversion .. so all the prices I was seeing last night was in US$
Repugnus however was in NZ$

If you are quick, Amazon USA are again offering Blast Off "for when a shipment arrives"
Sadly they don't offer economy shipping, have to go with medium or priority so he is slightly more expensive

Thanks, was able to change my current order for the cheaper shipment (based on past experience there is no difference between the two options except cost)

I'm guessing this line is dead in NZ now?

Last I'd heard was that wave three would hit in August but other than one Sinnertwin in Whitcoulls and the deluxes being fleetingly available on Toyco I never saw any.

I will email Hasbro and ask if there is anymore due to come for power of the primes, at the same time I will ask if they have a date for siege
