MP-36 NZ Import?

Postby Vestra » Wed Nov 09, 2016 10:10 pm

Hey Guys!

As Zippo has noted he will not be running a preorder for MP-36 next year.
Will anyone else be running an order? Transman?

Robotkingdom have put up their order price and it looks like he'll be a costy figure, probably quite a large box. Think we'll see it getting through customs without damage?
Looking for various MP figures, swing me a pm if you have any for sale gentlemen.

Theyve just got a big warning about hey watch out for gun and gun repica laws, its your responsibility not ours to check it out.

I dont know what said laws are but reasonably priced as always

I got one of these coming.

I got Mightron(DX9's Megatron) imported from China in the last few months. Had zero issues with importing him. Had a orange cap in the barrel with popped straight out with zero fuss!

Me too but I think the pricetag would be troublesome with customs?

It might be worthwhile contacting u/transman about this type of thing. He might even do a tfnz deal?

Aussies had a lot of trouble getting the last MP Megs in, quite a few were held up at customs. I suspect their replica guns enforcement is a lot more stringent than ours.

Didn't seem to have any issues getting MP5 into NZ back then though.

Hey folks - Has anybody committed to a pre-order yet?

As someone more accustomed to hunting grounds for vintage figure purchasing, I am a little lost for current releases.

I know these are shipping 2 units to a case - I am not sure how that compares with other MP figures.

I have done a pre-order through TFL, which have it currently at $200 US, before shipping. Customs is usually no issue.

Despite having been a happy(ish) customer of theirs, A fool and their money are easily parted, and I would like the best deal.

So if you have pre-ordered, who are you going through? please enlighten me :)

I went with Premium Collectables https://www.premiumcollectables.com.au/products/masterpiece-mp-36-megatron

Most people around here seem to be happy with orders through them. Paid $252 including shipping with a special they offered people through here for $15 off their first order.

Seems the first shipment is pre sold.
Do you have to pay up front on order?

Ive only ever ordered through Zippo, so not sure on how it works elsewhere.

I'd also be keen if anyone was thinking of going a group order.

Everywhere else is pressed out. Insane.
