    Speaking of Amazon, over on Ozformers I've just been told of Nacelle being available to us from Amazon US. If it works out (there is actual stock on the Amazon US site, unlike various MOTU toys that Amazon AU falsely claims to be able to supply from Amazon US, but I've not yet had my credit card charged, which is usually an immediate thing with Amazon, and the only instances of that not happening are Bad Stories...) then even with postage from the US it comes to only a bit more than my still-due-October order, and that was pretty much the standard price of a voyager now.

    Funny story - when checking out the stock on Amazon US, I played around to see what it would cost to buy direct - $93!

    I have been waiting a long while for this to come down in price!

    Nacelle is also on discount via Amazon US.

    Is it weird that we're only getting these great deals now, after Black Friday?

    Agreed. I also thought it was strange how the Black Friday Deal moniker was applied on Amazon for at least a week or so after Black Friday passed.

    As a side note, i think it’s strange we here in Australia recognise Black Friday as a sales event given we do not celebrate Thanksgiving. I spent most of November in America visiting family in Chicago, and understandably the Friday after Thanksgiving (a Thursday spent with friends and family) was treated as a day off and some (not all) Americans do take the opportunity on their day off to find some bargains. Mind you, in Chicago most big retailers (Target and Walmart, and also discount stores like Ross) trade until 10pm every night including Sundays. Shopping and retail over there is difficult to quantify and describe, particularly for a TF fan/collector. Amazon US is a very different set up to here in Australia.

    All stores in my local area (South West Sydney) are showing available for Click and Collect. For $50 however, thanks but no thanks.

    Regarding me buying a BWBB Worlds Collide set is it worth it to grab the whole set or if I am seriously only after one of the four figures should I just get it loose on eBay?

    It's commonly $60 for a voyager and 3 deluxes. I'd say go for it honestly.

    No we aren't. The only core we're getting from the wave is frenzy.

    So ended up getting the whole Worlds Collide set. It was only $30 more when compared to price for loose Primal I was watching on eBay

    Ah, this is where I grumble about paying $114 just for Fangry two years ago when the set first came out and there was no news on if it would ever see release here. And now I've been seeing the whole set for $80 for months with every trip to JB; buying the box and then sending 3/4 of it straight to oblivion is a better deal right now :)
