    Pros: Transformers are sold here. Um...

    Cons: They cost too much and the distribution (at least in my area) is shite.

    Where the hell are those places? Then again, that might explain why your distribution is crap if they're in the middle of Dingo Whoop-Whoop.

    Also, how much does the shipping from BBTS cost?

    If you're living in Australia and buying new TFs from overseas I suggest using RobotKingdom.com - they are almost always cheaper and quicker than BBTS or TFSource. Although BBTS's pile of loot feature can be very handy.

    Ebay:
    I actually live in Wodonga. BBTS or eBay tend to be the best bet for me. Often cheaper than big w or kmart and more likely to have what you want
