    not a lot really but that CC is just so tempting to ship out.... in fact I would have already but i Know as soon as i do Shadow Commander or Headrobots Blood will come in, both of which ive been waiting on for awhile as is and since i live in Aus its better to group as much as possible to save on shipping!

    If something might come in within the next month, wait until then to ship.

    If it could be 2+ out, your call. I'd ship :D 

    Unfortunately, I have preorders staggered until January. I might not ship till then, but it will be a glorious PoL...

    I'm thinking about just keeping a PoL and then shipping it at the end of Novemeber so I'll have a bunch crap for Christmas to play with.

    yeah i got the Nemesis and Prime deco Knight Morphers, Stepper, Shadow Commander, Blood, and 2 sets of the remaining 2 FP Insecticons on preorder.... all that stuff is over the next 4 months but with fairly sketchy dates.... i suppose Ill have to ship before all thats in to avoid customs fees anyway.... maybe blood and shadow can tag along with the second FP insecticon.

    yes.

    shipping now.

    Ship it. Life's to short to worry about a few dollars saved on shipping.

    I was going to say ship until I saw you're in Australia. Since the shipping is so much higher, it might be worth it to wait for more stuff to come in. Buuuut I'm too late. :p

    I recently pulled the trigger on my recent haul: CC set, Thundershread, Alternity Thundercracker, Cyberverse Crowbar, and MP Grimlock. I'm sure the box will be big enough as it is so I'd rather not wait for it to get so huge it'll be too difficult to transport since I use a PO box and currently don't have a car. My new PoL is turning out to be just as huge if not bigger, so I like to stagger my hauls every few weeks/months. (Man, this is getting to be expensive. XD) Depending on your mail box set up and transportation, I'd say ship if you're impatient but if you've got the patience of a Zen Buddhist monk, waiting until the holidays might be good to score some more discounts and savings, not to mention the rest of the Causality bots.

    whole lot was $470 and $59 of that was shipping... although most of that stuff was payed for when the exchange rate was at $1aus buys $1.10usd so thats an extra 10% off in the exchange rate which doesnt show through.

    also since i just shipped everyone else can expect there Shadow Commanders to come instock early next week..... i bet.
