I decided to bite the bullet blah blah blah

I know that ehobbybaseshop and robotkingdom both have lower prices but their shipping costs are through the roof. Keep us updated with how much shipping is and how you like their customer service, etc. If you have a good experience, then I'll probably start importing from them. Hopefully it goes well!
I wasn't able to get a shipping estimate with pre-orders, but did add a random toy that was about half the weight of one MP and ran a few numbers (which I've now forgotten
) on the cheapest option and was pleasantly surprised. I feel that what I'm saving on one figure more than covers that and 2 - 3 (Hoping to get Smokescreen as well and ship all 3 together) with a better shipping option should be better than import prices from a U.S. retailer.
Remember that these will be shipping to Australia and I believe that will cause the costs to be similar to shipping from America, but I will let you know what it cost me.

That's what I was thinking, not matter what happens I doubt we can loose
