    Hey Greejo, who are you purchasing through with the lack of items on LTC? There just doesn't seem to be a local option that I can find at the moment...

    Dorkside for Black Series, PopCultcha for Hot Toys....I have recently tried BulletproofVillain, Just a small order to test the waters as it will. PopCultcha and BPV are both Australian based Dorkside is in the states but their shipping rates are starting to get reasonable

    Thanks for that. I’ve used Dorkside before, but the last time was a few years ago now. I’ve also used Popcultcha, but haven’t heard of BPV. I looked into BBTS, too, but the shipping and poor Aussie dollar makes it a bit over the top $$$$

    Yeah the dollar exchange rate can be a killer As I said Dorkside have been getting better on shipping rates though

    I went and looked at Dorkside. I would have been happy to pay the shipping (it was quite reasonable)...but I’ve left it too late: they don’t have complete waves of the two recent BS anymore - must have sold out.

    Keep an eye on them. They quite often get more stock in as time goes by

    Has anyone heard any indication that Triple Force Friday will exist in Oz?

    Haven't heard a peep but I would suspect the boxes would be the same as the US and have street dates on them so I'd expect to see new stuff around the proper release date.

    Pretty sad how uneventful Force Friday has become here in Australia. The only new product I saw anywhere was the new Lego sets. EB Games/Zing had a separate display area at the front of the store away from the main Star Wars shelf but it was mostly the same T-shirts and coffee mugs that have been out for a while now. I was a bit surprised to see them also selling the new Lego sets as that's never really been a product they've sold until now.

    There was absolutely nothing new on Hasbro's end. EBs has the same Black Series Archive figures and everywhere else is still struggling to get rid of the Snoke/Jyn/Rey/Rose pegwarmers. I haven't collected Hasbro figures in years but it was still disappointing to see considering they used to be the leading toy brand whenever a new Star Wars movie was released.

    Very sad state of affairs. My son and I went on an old fashioned toy run yesterday morning, checking four different shopping centres with an assortment of stores (Toyworld, Target, BigW, Kmart, David Jones, Zing, etc.). Besides over-priced merch at Zing, there was absolutely nothing at 3 of the centres, until at the fourth Target had a lone wave of Black Series and the Galaxy of Adventures figures. BS were $40 each, so I left them (especially as they weren’t even the white boxed version). All in all, three hours of absolute disappointment!
