    I wear a kilt on my days off & have been released from Haunted Houses for being too scary.

    I'm not afraid of being noticed at all - I just prefer monsters.

    I really do wish they had just put all three Powerdashers in one box. Would have made more sense. Ah well. It is what it is.

    I'm an Amazon virgin. And I think they are a bit vague on this when I look it up on the site.
    I hope you can help me, Nevermore? Or anyone?
    If I order this from Amazon Germany and have it shipped to Belgium, does it ship to me from Germany or does it ship to me from the US?

    If you order from Amazon Germany, it may ship from any European fulfillment center (as in, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, the UK, Poland or the Czech Republic), but not from the US unless explicitly stated so.

    Marvelous. I was afraid I'd get a surprise customs mark-up. Thank you very much for your help.

    Yes, that could actually be a boxed set I'd be interested in hunting down but I guess they were worried that the Powerdashers wouldn't be popular enough. I can kinda see it, they'd be three nobodies with an untransformery style. Oh well.

    A word of advice: When ordering at Amazon, make sure who is actually selling the item. There are three different possibilities:
    • Ships from and sold by Amazon. This is what people usually think of when ordering from "Amazon".
    • Ships from Amazon and sold by someone else. This is called "FBA" (short for "Fulfillment by Amazon"). Basically, Amazon provides its facilities to third-party sellers who send their stock to Amazon, and Amazon acts as a middleman, handling not only the transaction but also shipping.
    • Ships from and sold by someone else. This is called "Amazon Marketplace". Basically, Amazon only acts as a middleman to arrange the deal and handle the transaction, but the shipping is handled by the third-party seller.
    For people who are new to Amazon, but also to longtime Amazon customers, the "who does what" portion either isn't displayed particularly prominently, or they're just so naive and ignorant that they never pay attention to what's right in front of their eyes.

    Third-party sellers can sometimes have exorbitant prices. As soon as Amazon doesn't have an item in stock, the system automatically defaults to the cheapest third-party option, which can sometimes be considerably above MSRP. However, sometimes a third-party seller may also offer an item cheaper than Amazon itself. In that case, the system also automatically defaults to the cheapest seller.

    Sometimes people have been burned by third-party sellers who actually sold fakes.

    I really want that Impactor after noticing the different head... But man I don't want the rest of that pack.. :( 

    Side note: I'm also missing the Decepticon reference... Anyone?

    It's possibly a reference to how in the IDW comics Impactor was good friends with Megatron before the war, and made Whirl's life a living hell after Whirl nearly beat Megatron to death. But Impactor was never officially a Decepticon as far as I remember.

    Thank you for the warning.
    It says "Ships from and sold by Amazon". I have noticed 3rd party sellers on Amazon often have inflated prices, which is one of the reasons I haven't used their service before.
    Another reason is the imo not very user friendly website.
    Most online shops specializing in TF's are far more easy to find your way in.
    I don't see why a multinational online retail platform can't manage that.

    The IDW Megatron/Impactor link was all I could come up with.

    OK, so I preordered a few of the exclusives from BBTS (Shackwave, Lancer, toy Reflector) and a few from Amazon.de (G2 Sideswipe/Slamdance, fan-vote pack... despite the horrible pricing, but hey, that's Europe.). Got Greenlight off ebay. But where do I get Ratchet and the Micromaster 10-pack?

    Amazon.de now provides an estimate for the 3-pack (translated by Google):
