Transformer09 Transformer09 , have you ever imported figures from Big Bad Toy Store ?

They seem to have international shipping.
Nope. Be careful in which shipping method you choose, some items imported may go through the post office and then you'll wait months for it. I know Sideshow have a shipping option like Amazon where they courier to your door. So just find out before you order. I use Aramex to ship my figures to me since I have an account with them. Im sure the local guys will stock that. Ask Reza from Project Mayhem or Cosmic Comics.

Decided to dust the shelve containing my 3D printed 10mm scaled mechs ................ boy. Did not notice how the collection have grown. Took a quick snapshot while I had them laying on the bed while I dusted the shelve.

~70 odd mechs. :)))))

This is my humble collection so far. No cabinet yet because I still have to decide how i'm going to display them.
I have not gotten involved in the figurines yet as that would totally kill my bank balances...hahaha

Do any of you guys remember the playing cards from Super Trumps. I collect those too...have quite a few already...some in great condition...some played with alot.

@BLaaR Thanks for tagging me in that post, price is just too high. You can still get them for less if you find the right seller, it is a rare figure though as back then Hot Toys did not make the numbers that they do today. They produce so many figures these days that is not "limited" or "rare" anymore.

Now days it would be stupid to buy figures/statues to make a profit later on by selling them as the market does not allow that anymore, especially in SA. I only buy what I really want and not to sell at a later stage.

No problem.

As for figures, I received my last batch of Pacific Rim 2 wave 3 figures.(poor mans figures :) ) Will post some pics later of the whole set. For now I am keeping them in their packages. Will probably just hang them on my wall.

I paid around 3.6k for it but I had some discount points ect. This would set you back $250 plus VAT and Shipping. Think he was available locally for 5k

Received the Wave 1 of the Super 7 - Masters of the Universe. I plan on getting the Trap Jaw and Man-At-Arms next and don't plan on getting the rest of the releases. Just wanted the "poppies" I had from my "younger days".
