    You can add poor old me as another victim of a Paypal gaff. Last week I ordered two Transformers from Robot Kingdom: Piranacon and the Classics/Universe 3-pack. Since I didn't have any funds in my Paypal account at the time, I paid for these items with an Echeque, which would be credited to my bank account. Today I received a notice from Paypal that my payment had been cancelled because for some stupid reason it had tried to withdraw money from a defunct Llyods TSB bank account rather than my current Barclays one (which I had specifically listed as my primary account). I thought the simplest way to resolve the issue would be to simply order the items again. But when I clicked on the Piranacon page, the figure was listed Out of Stock today!

    I wanted to order Piranacon and the 3-pack together to save on shipping costs, but Robot Kingdom is the only website that lists the 3-pack at $35. I can't swoon over BBTS or TF Source like the rest of you because they charge a higher rate for importing to the States, which is a waste of money for someone living in the UK. If anyone could help me out, I'd appreciate it if someone knows another Asian dealer that sells both Piranacon and the 3-pack at a reasonable price.

    In my ass
    Man that must be a pain in the ass. My dad has alot of issues with PayPal too when selling his guitars on Ebay.

    I think this might actually belong in Toy discussion. I don't know any dealers who would sell you the figures you are looking for, I suggest asking around with some of the other users. You'll find it eventually don't worry ;) 

    I'm also thinking about purchasing Piranacon myself. It looks pretty nice and I've had good experience with BBTS in the past. I wish you the best of luck my friend.
