    What's up gang! I was thinking of doing a group buy for the 2nd release MP-05 Megatron. With the huge purchase, we are entitle to a 20% discount. Its from TFsource.com and their price is $97.00. Anyone interested? This is intended for U.S. buyers, but i'm sure we can work something out with fellow international buyer:) . So first thing first, I need to get a head count of how many pc(s) you want so I can submit our orders. As for payments, stand by until I work something out with the dealer.

    As for payment type, you may use money order or personal check (4 days to clear). No Pay Pal because we want to keep our cost down as possible. Will have the payment address up soon as I get the word from TFsource.com


    If possible, I would like everyone to round it off to the nearest dollar. Hey, I know i'm not a math wiz, but I wanted to keep the numbers in whole dollars.


    Unit price is $97.00 less 20% = $77.60 (how about $78 gangs)


    PS - Please check here for updates. MP-05 Megatron arrives in Dec/Jan time frame.

    Thur Oct 11: Will ship to your address from TFsource.com (all around the world)

    Thur Oct 11: Group buy price $77.60

    Sun Oct 14: For shipping, it will be individual shipping unless they all go to one address. The $4 is for each going to the same location. We can offer $80 for 24 or more pieces. But then if you want to ship each to a separate address within the US it will be $10 each, etc.

    Sun Oct 14: We don’t plan to modify this item. For European shipping you can use the UK checkout shipping rate, it holds for all of Europe.

    Sun Oct 14: I'd like to set the group-buy order deadline date to Nov 15th. Please, ensure that all your information and order are accurate and shipping cost is applied accordingly to TFsource.

    Sun Oct 14: Mail payment to me (Agent-GHQ), Ryver R Choy (personal check or money order). Mailing address: PO Box 357119 San Diego, CA 92135-7119. Include your full name, user name, what you ordered, and qty. I must received payment by Dec 1st.

    Mon Oct 15: Canada is $14 for airmail post. China, Australia, South Africa, etc.. - $32. Most of the European, Asian, etc. countries can get the item shipped for $32 for airmail post. But keep in mind this is airmail post, no tracking #. Priority mail International or EMS, and insurance are additional. But if EMS can be had for within that budget we will ship that way.

    Tues Oct 16: If you're paying by Pay Pal, please add 4% to the grand total (items + shipping, then the 4% of that). My Pay Pal e-mail: agentghq@yahoo.com Note down your info in the Pay Pal note box.

    Mon Dec 3: I'm reviewing our orders to ensure accuracy. Like checks n balance. Once i'm finished with that, i'll review again and again to ensure that we are correct on our orders. Please keep in mind that the MP-05 is expected to arrive in Jan. That should give us an idea as to how long we can expect to receive our goods. Also, those that orders a set or multiples items are to shipped altogether. My goal is to complete our order sheet and have it mail out this Monday! Lots of work to do... lol.

    Thur Dec 6: What's up all! I've e-mailed TFsource and awaiting for a reply inorder to get their mailing address. Hope I get the reply soon so I can get our orders processed. Thanks everyone for the group-buy and your patience.

    Mon Dec 10: I still have not received a reply from TFsource after three e-mails. Does anyone know whether they are on vacation or their whereabouts? If anyone who can get a hold of them, please PM me and their phone number too, if possible.

    Sun Dec 16: Good news all! I'll be mailing our payments this Monday Dec 17 1st thing in the morning. The issue with the e-mail was within my spam filters. Sorry, I couldn't mail our payments sooner because I wanted to confirm our orders with TFsource first on our group-buy status.

    Fri Dec 21: Hello all! This is an e-mail from TFsource:
    Hi ryver,
    The check was received today, thanks again! Good news – MP05’s are instock and ready to ship, bad news – we have enough preorders to fill a large warehouse, so it’s going to take about a week to ship out all orders, and since yours were received last…it’s going to be a little while. But still, your/our customers should receive them around the 1st of the year (within the US) so things should be good.
    Thanks and Happy Holidays!
    Curt

    Fri Dec 28: Hello all! I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who has made our group-buy a successful one! I will definitely do more group-buy on the MP line as soon as preorders are up at TFsource.com. Hopefully, the rumored of MP-07 (Starscream color accurate) and MP-08 (OP w/ Megatron combo w/ complete accessories) are to be true.

    I have received good news that few members have already received their MP-05. So if you have not received your item by Jan 1st, please give it a week and PM me with your complete name and what you ordered so I can check on your shipping status.

    Unfortunately for our friends that are out the U.S., shipping will be a bit longer. But please allow time and PM me and i'll look it up for you.

    Last, if you have any suggestions or concerns to make our group-buy more effective and smoother, please feel free to PM me.

    Again, thanks everyone for making our group-buy a success!!

    Have a wonderful New Year!

    Ryver-
    Group-Buy coordinator

    How many would need to be in for the group? Also, would it save that much? I mean the whole lot would go to one individual who would then have to package and ship them out to everyone who ordered. I'm not trying to downplay the idea, just being realistic.

    It would make more sense if everyone was from San Diego, which seems to be where you're located, as shipping to various buyers after the first purchase would almost bring the price back up to where it was if you'd bought one for yourself.

    You have a point and I have considered that as well. So when I received ALL the goods, i'll individually ship them out. Better yet, if I can get TFsource team to ship them out would be great. So my idea is to place a HUGE order and have the TFsource team ship them to their designated location. I'm generating ideas with TFsource on the shipping part. Still awaiting for a reply:)

    Oric, they are retail at $97 each. But if we get more people to buy, the better as we get that 20% discount. Already ave 7 pcs from TFans.com too. As for payment, stand by on that until we know exactly who and how many pcs are being purchased. I'm still arranging things to make this a smooth transaction with TFsource.com
