Here's who is intesested so far based on your responses in this thread. If it is incorrect please let me know and I'll remove/add as necessary. Assuming everyone who has responded wants one of each, we can get the bulk pricing.

Alberta: (ALL CONFIRMED)
jourdo (1 of each)
BadJeff (1 of each)
QuadESL63 (1 of each)
mr_lude2000 (1 of each)
Mumps (1 of each)
bluefrenzy (1 of each)
Zakna (2 of each)

Ontario:
StarwarsTF (1 of each) CONFIRMED
RandomFerret (1 of each) CONFIRMED
devilsknight (1 of each?) CONFIRMED

Quebec:
rid (1 of each) CONFIRMED


THE RULES:
1. Don't sign up if you are not going to follow through. I'm putting my own money up for this and don't want to buy what I don't need.
2. You will only be responsible for the price of your order, and your proportional share of the shipping and taxes (if applicable).
3. I live in Calgary. If you require your Dinobots to be shipped, there will be additional charges for this. I don't mind mailing them out and will only pass on the actual shipping charges no more/no less. Make sure it is worth it for you to join this. It may be worth it to have a bunch shipped to one person who can distribute to others in the same city.

NEW DETAILS FRON DEVILSKNIGHT **PLEASE READ**


Re: WST Dinobots Group Buy -- DETAILS NOW INSIDE
Alright i have discussed this with Jourdo. And pretty much this is how it can go down for those interested.

I live not to far from Sheraz. So i would be willing to pickup the toys from him on order and if we buy enough we get price breaks etc etc. But if i pay cash i know he doesn't charge taxes which is good.

Now my offer on top of that is...to anyone who orders I will ship them for free to you. No catches. I can ship in bulk to Jourdo in Calgary for those interested and he can distribute them as he pleases.

So that means we get the discounted price if we buy in large quantity, no tax and free shipping. If that sounds ok then signup and we'll take care of the details as they get closer to the release date !

Lemme know or Jourdo

Yup... still got 2 left over from the last buy. I can't remember for the life of me who the hell backed out after I placed the order. On that note: I have a Grimlock and Slag available to anyone who wants one.

Damn... I really need to get my crap together and put up a for sale thread.

No updates yet. I'm still waiting to hear about pricing.

what do you mean a group buy?
i'd like to hear more

Basically the way it works is we buy as a group and hopefully get enough people to warrant a bulk discount. I'll have to figure out the logistics if we are doing it across Canada... but that is the basic idea behind it.

Doesn't a group buy only make sense for people living within the same city?
I mean, with a bulk discount, each person might save a few dollars, but wouldn't shipping from the group-buyer to some people across Canada cost a few dollars anyways?

I totally agree. That is most likely how it will work out. But I'm willing to do the leg work to find out the details and see if it is worth it for others to join... otherwise I'll still do it for the local boys.

jourdo
06-21-2007, 11:48 PM
OK... I've got some details now. To keep it clean, I will be editing the first post with a list of those who expressed interest.

Basically, the price break comes at 10 (of each robot, not mix & match).

Sludge - $20 retail (10 or more $18 each)
Swoop - $30 retail (10 or more $27 each)

I do not know the shipping charges as of yet, but it would likely be dependant on how many are ordered. As the poster above mentioned about the geographics issues, you may want to see if localized groups can get together for this. I am in Calgary, Alberta. So, please take into consideration the shipping charges to whereever you are before you join this little endeavor.

The way it worked last time I did this, was that each person was responsible for their proportional share of the shipping charges, taxes, duty, etc. Seeing as this batch is from Canada, there is no duty to worry about this time. Just shipping and taxes (I can't remember if Kooltoyz's prices include GST or not). Either way, you are only responsible for your share of the fees... I don't add anything extra for the work I am doing for this (likely will only add the 3% Paypal fee if you pay me with that).

Also, if you do not intend on following through with this, please do not join. I got stuck with an extra set of Dinobots last time as someone backed out after they were ordered. Last time I did not as for money up front, and intend to do it the same way this time, but I'd rather not buy crap I don't need... we'll see how big this gets this time though. ;)

Please confirm with me if you want in on this and how many of each bot you want. I'm not really going to go shopping for the older ones unless there is a high enough demand for it. Also let me know where you are... it may not be worth it for you to join this and may want to get a group of your own going.

Anyway... Please let me know as soon as possible.

Matt

Please confirm with me if you want in on this and how many of each bot you want.

Again, I want to be in and here's my order:

Sludge: 1
Swoop: 1

BTW, from the last batch what do you still have in stock? I am interested in getting an extra Grimlock. I didn't know you will have left over last time around or else I would have just pick an extra one up.

Thanks, Jourdo!

pc2b1
06-23-2007, 06:46 PM
if your just grabbing them from kooltoyz then i might aswell headover there and pick it up myself?
its only a five dollars in savings, i save that by just picking them up myself. he charges taxes on shipped items but not on pick ups.

so i guess it's safe to say take me off the list thanks for the offer though

if you'd like maybe the guys in ontario (GTA) should pick it up to save on the taxes but you never no he may not charge on your order

Triplechanger
06-23-2007, 07:53 PM
Jourdo, take me off the list as well, seeing how I am planning on getting some of the encore reissues, for $5 difference I’ll just get those along with them.

jourdo
06-23-2007, 11:35 PM
pc2b1 & Triplechanger - done and done.

Ideally, I'd like to find five more local buyers for this. I'm anticipating the eastern boys to start dropping like flies here.

Zakna & Bluefrenzy... I know you two were in last time. Want back in this time? vbmenu_register("postmenu_9404", true); vbmenu_register("postmenu_9404", true);

Just wanted to add for those sitting on the fence, i'm in Ontario and will ship anywhere in Canada for free for those interested.

I believe i'm still to pick these things up as well from Sheraz, if Jourdo says it's ok still, and that way save the taxes and any additional shipping costs.

Jourdo PM me with what info Sheraz gave you and if we're still on for this.

Any other questions PM me :)

Today is the last chance to get in on this for sure. With devilsknight's help this is well worth it across the country.

For anyone who signs up after today, there are no guarantees that we will be able to fit you in as we are giving our numbers to Sheraz now.

I don't have a final price as of yet, but it should be a little less than the quoted price of the two dinos. We have someone who can pick them up personally and ship them out at no charge. I'll hopefully have the final price hammered out here soon.

And yes... we're talking loonies here. Not that US crap. ;)

I've searched everywhere for images to these Dinobots with no success. Are these remakes like Classic Deluxe Grimlock? Are they as well-made as that figure? If so, I'm totally interested. Apologies for my ignorance, I haven't looked at Transformers toys for more than a decade.

These are miniature versions of the G1 Dinobots. There is a good gallery of Snarl here (http://www.tfw2005.com/gallery/showgallery.php/cat/937), but I couldn't find one for the others (I personally blame that lazy Soundwave.ca ;) )... but you get the idea.

Ah, I see, thanks for the clarification. Any idea if any of the other Dinobots will be getting the Grimlock Classic Deluxe treatment?

Is this thread for the new WST Dinobots - Sludge & Swoop - due to come out soon? If so, is it too late to get in on the group buy? I'd definitely be on board with 1 of each since I just picked up the other 3 this week.

If it's too late, no worries. Figured I might as well at least ask :)

Just wondering, how much would I be saving from this group buy?

I'm not sure what the other retails are like for pricing, but this is looking like $18 CDN for Sludge and $27 CDN for Swoop. No shipping charges and no customs (they are coming from within Canada). If you are interested, let me know.

As of now though, we are closing the group buy to anyone else (for now anyways).

I will post up details once they become available.

09-26-2007, 03:15 PM
OK boys and girls, here it is:

The dinobots are due the middle of next month (give or take). We are close enough now that we should start talking money.

Devilsknight has agreed to pick all of these up in person and ship them out to us. He will be paying Sheraz cash to save us the taxes.

For those paying with a Paypal Balance (ie. NOT through a credit card):
Pay devilsknight directly through his paypal account (devilsknight@hotmail.com). He has a personal account and is not charged fees on balance transfers. Credit card payments cannot be done through this account.

For those paying with Paypal WITH a credit card):
You will have to pay me through my paypal account, and I will forward it to devilsknight. HOWEVER, as there are fees attached to this, I would ask that you add 3% + $0.55 to your total (to cover the Paypal fees). As long as you are ok with that, shoot your payment off to jourdoebay@shaw.ca.

For those paying some other method:
Contact myself or devilsknight to work out the details.

Once devilsknight has picked things up, he will start the shipping process. Make sure you get your addresses to one of us. Calgary people, I will have the whole lot shipped to me and will distribute them once they arrive.

We would like to have the money stuff taken care of by October 10th if possible. Thanks all!

Totals (Sludge = $18.00, Swoop = $27.00, all CDN dollars):

so matt, for cgy guys who wanna pay cash direct to you...how much is it? or is paypal much more prefered.

Paypal to devilsknight is preferred as he has to pony up the cash to pick up the dinos. I would be fine with cash from the Calgary peeps, as long as I have the funds soon enough that I can mail off a cheque or something to devilsknight (so he has it before the 10th). If you want to go this route, then that is fine... but I'd need the money about a 5-7 days sooner. Paypal just makes things easier.

Just let me know how you local boys want to handle this.

If it is to devilsknight (via balance transfer), there should not be paypal fees. If it is to me (via credit card), then it is $45 + 3% + $0.55. Anything over and above the paypal fees will be shot back to you if the math is off.

OK boys and girls, here it is:

The dinobots are due the middle of next month (give or take). We are close enough now that we should start talking money.

Devilsknight has agreed to pick all of these up in person and ship them out to us. He will be paying Sheraz cash to save us the taxes.

For those paying with a Paypal Balance (ie. NOT through a credit card):
Pay devilsknight directly through his paypal account (devilsknight@hotmail.com). He has a personal account and is not charged fees on balance transfers. Credit card payments cannot be done through this account.

For those paying with Paypal WITH a credit card):
You will have to pay me through my paypal account, and I will forward it to devilsknight. HOWEVER, as there are fees attached to this, I would ask that you add 3% + $0.55 to your total (to cover the Paypal fees). As long as you are ok with that, shoot your payment off to jourdoebay@shaw.ca.

For those paying some other method:
Contact myself or devilsknight to work out the details.

Once devilsknight has picked things up, he will start the shipping process. Make sure you get your addresses to one of us. Calgary people, I will have the whole lot shipped to me and will distribute them once they arrive.

We would like to have the money stuff taken care of by October 10th if possible. Thanks all!

Ah well, I wasn't even expecting these figures to show up until late November or December anyway, so I'm not upset about the apparent delay. When it comes to Kool Toyz getting stock, I'm kind of used to it showing up later than anyone else and/or what's stated on their website. And that's not a shot against them or anything - it's just the way it is sometimes. Their prices & great service more than make up for the wait.

Sooooo... any word on a release date for these things yet? I only ask because I'm moving to Vancouver at the end of March and would kind of like to have them in hand before I leave town. But if doesn't happen, I assume I can just get them mailed to me out there with relative ease...?

Heh, when I pre-ordered them 4 or 5 months ago, I really didn't think I'd have to be asking this. :)

* For the record, yes, I totally realize this huge wait is out of our (and Kool Toyz') control. JustItToys, however, is officially on notice. :P
