    Long shot, but does anyone who has Girder (or Roadcrane) using the "toy" style head and interested in selling their "toon" style head? I need a better head for my Maketoys Wrestle, lol...

    If there are no takers try emailing MMC directly to see if you can get one from them. They have pretty good end customer support.

    Thanks. Hadn't considered that. Do they have a website with contact info?

    EDIT: found their site and messaged them.

    I'm thinking of picking this up off Taobao. Just crunched the numbers. Should be no more than $36 shipped.

    Oops. False alarm. My math was wrong. It should actually be no more than $53 shipped.

    Whewww... and the combination of that correction with my getting this for $50 during a BF sale allows me comfort to once again delay my foray into taobao shopping.

    Nah. MMC isn't offering the deep discount for Backdraft.

    Ok. I always factor in the shipping cost. I just price checked it at Toy Dojo. After their cheapest shipping option TD's grand total for Girder comes to $59.49 or basically $60 shipped.

    Taobao seller MKA has it for $53 shipped and that is on the high end. It may be cheaper is the shipping weight is a bit less. It'll be even cheaper if I combine ship with other items in my warehouse stash.

    I got Girder and Artifex and it's 1.77kg in total and sitting with the forwarder if that helps. Girder was ¥200 and local shipping which I forget. Still a steal though!

    You're using the 4Px overseas forwarding/shipping warehouse since your shipping address is in Australia right? I'm in the USA and I'm using JCEX/USPS. I'd imagine both warehouses weigh their items the same.
    Well, that's good news. My Maketoys Meteor is sitting at the warehouse where it weighed in at 2.28kg. That certainly means that Girder by itself would be less than 1.77 kg so therefore the overseas shipping charge would be less than I thought and the grand total for Girder would be cheaper than I thought...maybe closer to $49 or $50 shipped. We'll see. I'm waiting to get a reply back from MKA that he has any left in stock before I pull the trigger.

    Or shipping could be free if you spend over $150.

    Toydojo seemed to have the only FPs I was interested in (and was hoping for a sale on), in stock; and while both they and showz had what would be double dipping items like the clear skywarp for $50, toydojo has a number of other items for $50 and a few deals for $100 (DX9 Hanzo, MP artfire, MP ramjet, even the delta MP of your namesake) that should/could easily put one over the threshold for free shipping; but hey it’s all out choice, right?

    Yup, in Australia. Same end price but weight is actually 1.55kg so could be even less for you if it can come under the 500g threshold.
