    It's retail. $29.99 Voyager, three $5.99 Battle/Targetmasters. $48.00 plus special packaging, etc. At $49.99 we're not actually losing anything and those 'masters will sell like hotcakes if one was so inclined.

    Quick question for the Japan site. I've ordered one item from there like 6 months ago with no problem. Now, I have an item there on pre order and I keep getting emails saying my card is declined. I check it in the payment settings and confirmed the card isn't locked or anything from my bank. Anybody have this problem recently?

    Redo the card completely (even if it's the exact same information) and make sure that the billing address for the card is accurate. That's all I got.

    Yeah that's what I did after the first notice. Looks like I'll no longer be able to use them as a site anymore. Sucks because the one time it worked, shipping was extremely quick.

    ...sometimes i have to call my credit card company to pre-authorise international transactions; they tend to set off automated fraud-detection algorithms...

    Make sure your credit card isn't declining international charges.. cards are now very strict with international transaction Bec if fraud

    Thanks, I'll try that. Usually I get a fraud phone call to verify it was me. Get them every other week it's seems.

    Well yesterday Amazon screwed up a delivery. It wasn't transformers related but a tool I needed for craft project. I mean I can go to Hobby Lobby and get it so no big deal. But after 45 minutes on a call trying to log the problem and get a refund, they said to give them 24 hours to try and solve and didn't even offer me a credit or refund or send a replacement. This was after 3 transfers from people who had no clue about my problem. It was simple. You delivered item. You sent delivery picture. The doorstep you photo'd it on is not my porch. Beside the door is aluminum siding. My doorway is all brick. You messed up. My neighbors got a free item because they don't bring wrong delivered mail even 2 doors down to the right place. I even asked them and they denied getting any packages. Just so thankful I was home with my garage door up when they delivered Alpha Strike and Phantom. Especially since I ordered 2 each. Their services really make me not want to order anything from amazon anymore. Between the bubble wrapped shipping and the constant screw ups....UGH.

    I travelled outside the USa month ago and I tried using the ccard and it keeps denying the charges even though I notified them way ahead of time. Finally after a couple of tries I got a notification of fraud charges which I verified and it took a couple of hours before it went thru..goodluck tho

    Yeah, I buy Doctor Who audios from a company called Big Finish in the UK. Out of about 3 different cards I’ve tried, only one will work. And even that one is hit-and-miss. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Even though I’ve called them repeatedly. It really is a pain in the butt.

    Would someone buy my Masters? Because I only want Skywarp.

    Anyone willing to buy the Targetmasters for retail, send me a PM.

    To add to the packaging confusion...

    I placed an order on Amazon for Siege Soundwave and Springer (same order). Soundwave was shipped from PA and came in a huge cardboard box. Springer was shipped from CT in a bubble mailer. Soundwave's box still had a couple of dings. Springer's box had a few more. I don't collect boxes, but I thought that others might be interested in this.
