    Ah, nice. You're getting Thomas for $40 cheaper than I got him and $279.99 would probably be what the reissue price would be if they hold to the same pricing as the reissues of Phoenix and Quietus, both were around $279 give or take $10-20 depending on the store.

    Anyway, glad I could help. :thumb

    I've taken the plunge too.
    If all goes well, I will have got him cheaper than his original UK price from Omegalock.

    thanks again
    This is why im on this board, cool people just sharing their cool hobbies. Before this i had not commented regularly on a board since 1999 when i mistakenly suggested on theforce.net that Jar Jar Binks was shithouse. Bloody hell some nerds came for me. Turned me off message boards for 20 yrs...

    That is ridiculous for TFSOURCE to have him at 400 plus tax! I finally ordered one a few weeks ago from ShowZ at $316 and figured might as well, doesn't seem like the price will get better soon. It probably will drop now that I bought him. That price at Heat Toy is amazing with him priced well over 300 everywhere. I've actually never heard of them til this thread but I noticed they have "Bombusbee" written over every other product pic so I assume they are the same seller on Aliexpress which are legit. They are sold out now anyway but was about to buy Thomas from them at 279 except they had a ridiculous amount for shipping which put the total back to 330 plus tax.

    I feel like I should get a discount from Heat Toy for promoting their Thomas lmao. It sold out fast after I mentioned it! :lol 

    Don't feel bad, I bought mine at ShowZ as well for about 311 after using points. I wish that deal at Heat Toy was available back then.

    It really isn't... It's a good figure, but not a 300usd figure, let alone 400.

    That's not even a real G1 Astrotrain, it'd need to be several decades older...

    If anything, I think there's some buyer exhaustion going on here. FT and retailers please take note !!

    Heattoy could jump on this attention, collect some cash and make a decent name for itself at this Forum.
