    I was desperate for a Sonic Bomber. Thanks to silly fan craziness over the Hasbro version coming sans Swords, supplies are DRY.

    Until SMEGS showed me http://www.neonmartian.com

    I purchased both Sonic Bomber and BT Prowl police version, another *really hard* to find item.

    It's a *great* online store. The prices are pretty good, and if you order a fair bit, your £6 postage goes a long way. The best thing? I phoned the guy using a telephone to ask if they were in stock.

    So they get my thumbs up! Delivered next day too. And they take paypal. I liked them so much I'm ordering BT Skids from them RIGHT NOW. Okay maybe not right now, but soon.

    So yeah, a nice alternative to overseas and the dreaded customs charge.

    Peace out!

    But my room would seem so empty without all the big brown boxes covered in kanji...

    That said, I do like that they have Japanese basics at the same price as UK ones, I think I might finally get me some Rumbles.

    Yes he does, I had to point out that it was a UK site to him despite everything being in pounds.

    By the looks of it all the Rumbles are out of stock.

    Which is not surprising, given if they weren't I'd have bought them all and stuck them on ebay given what they're going for now. I'd like some spares, but not at what they're going for.

    I only have one of those. However, it is one for the Predaking reissue; Epic Heroes shipped it in its original case :) 

    GF Soundwave & Sonic Bomber should arrive in the morning (they are my last pre-save-to-get-Liz-over-here toy splurge). I ordered them at about 2am this morning, and got an email at about 10am saying they had been despatched.
    AWESOME find, d00d! :)

    Posting this in a separate post, since this thread needs to be seen by as many UK people as possible.
    Soundwave & Sonic Bomber arrived this morning, dead on 10am, in absolutely perfect condition. They were each individually wrapped in bubblewrap, and with another layer of bubblewrap round them both, and in a sturdy box (very securely taped). They even put in a little bag of Pokemon candy as well. I am DEFINITELY buying from these people again. In fact, after this they will be the first place I'll look :thumbs2:

    Well, as soon as the parents get home, I'm ordering Backgild, so hopefully that should arrive soon, along with my Live Convoy from Epic Heroes.
