Yeah I dunno what I was thinking maybe it's cos all the US guys on here were talking about it so I assumed that they were based over there and were a US reseller. Brain clearly not in gear but I worked it out when I did a search for sellers in the 4 regions where they have the license to sell direct and Simply toys popped up on google maps.

So, for Toypanic I got quoted:

"Sub Total (MYR) : 2104.00
Shipping (MYR) : 0.00
Discount Total (MYR) : 105.20
Redeem (MYR) : 0.00
Paypal Charges (MYR) : 59.96
Total Panic Points Earned : 1999

TOTAL PAYABLE (MYR) : 400 + 0.00 (Shipping) + 0.00 (Redeem) + 59.96 (Paypal Charge) = 459.96"

The amount payable is a 20% deposit so looks like the cost comes in at 2000 MYR (about 660AUD) + shipping. I've emailed them to give me a quote on that and will see where it comes in. Bonus is that you get the points although I haven't worked out exactly what they are worth yet.

I got a quote from the chap you mentioned although right now that isn't the cheapest option. I'd get the silver coin but that's not a deal breaker for me so will see what info I get back from the other sellers and go from there.

Sounds like a good plan. I'm definitely curious to know what those points are used for. I think loyalty programs are always a plus.

I don't have anything else in that scale, and I don't display them. I can't tell Almost all my stuff are 1/4 with a couple 1/5 in the JSC spidy line. But I like that line, hope to find a spot somewhere (likely in my wife's office) to display them.

Sent you a PM about prices.

FYI for anyone interested in using toypanic.com

100 points = 1MYR
You get about 2000 points for Captain america
that's equivalent to a saving of about AUD6.60 (nothing amazing but something to take into account).

So is Toypanic reputable? I am trying to find the best bang for my buck to get one over here in the States.

Haven't use them myself. I just found them whilst doing a few searches of the regions they have licenses for. They seem like a decent outfit. That said I think you need to confirm shipping costs. I did for shipping to Australia and they came out more expensive than simply toys who are probably your best bet price wise. Good luck!
