    While I've been buying Transformers for years, I'm new to getting them from the Internet. I've used eBay and Kapow, but I'm curious to see who else is out there. I know that most online stores will ship worldwide but the postage can be extoritionate! All suggestions welcome.

    Kapow mate all the way!!!! I looked at buying from the big abroad stores and its all so expensive now, especially if you get hit for customs charges

    Older stuff is hard to call, but ebay is the best place still at the moment.

    Thank you, guys. I'll keep all those in mind when I'm buying. At the minute I'm hitting dire financial straits thanks to having to buy car parts. :-(

    Agreed, they're overpriced to the extreme.

    Sometimes Kapow does, but not regularly. They've got some MISB Micromaster stuff atm.

    just use ebay.com and check on shipping and make sure its sent as a gift. UK stores are just a joke on items. Take classics smokescreen for example - Kapow 15GBP - Ebay - 20GBP yet i got him ON HERE for $10 (thats almost under 5GBP) so just ask on here i say or on the other forums
