    Hi guys,

    I'm looking in to importing a few of these blasters, if there's enough interest for re-sale:

    ERTL PAS

    ERTL shotgun blasters pre-order/show of interest Pas10

    ERTL Rapid Fire Shotgun

    ERTL shotgun blasters pre-order/show of interest Rapid_10


    These blaster's are extremely difficult to access, so price will be reflective of this.
    At this stage, I'm looking to sell at $80 to $100 AUD for each blaster, not including domestic shipping.

    NB: I'm only gauging interest at the moment. I will most probably be getting one of each for myself, but if there's enough interest from genuine buyer's, I'll investigate further in to getting a few of each blaster.

    PM me if you're genuinely interested.

    Cheers,
    Darth Lai

    EPIC!! I REALLY want...I understand why the price is so high, but I just don't have that much. Very happy to hear that some of these maybe coming to Aus.

    And.. Shipping is usually $40+ AUD.. So i think it's better to go with clunk, might get cheaper shipping for more items..

    Definitely agree - these are hard to come buy. And they're worth it in the long run. I think.

    Yes about the ordering from Amazon, they will not ship any of these guns.
    Along with others like the big bad bow. After you add it to your cart
    and proceed to the checkout it tells you that "we can not ship this item to
    your destination". So getting it off clunk would be a lot easier

    Okay boys n girls,

    There's definitely enough interest for me to go ahead. As mentioned earlier, this is only in the development stage. Shipping is going to be a major issue, which is what I'm dealing with at the moment. Hopefully I'll have some more definite progress, updated pricing, etc next week sometime.

    IF this does go ahead, these will be the terms. I'll require 50% deposit from each person before ordering (unless you're one of my preferred sellers/buyers). For this first initial order, I'm taking the chance with paying upfront myself. I don't want to go through all the hassles of refunding coin to people if it doesn't work out. Preference will go to people I have traded with in the past. After that, I will work on first in - best dressed, pending on people's scores from the trading section. My system will be:

    Positive score (ranking)
    No score (to not discriminate against first-time traders)
    Negative score (Really, I won't be going there at all!!)

    Thanks for the interest people, with a little luck, I should be able to get this off the ground. I know I can definitely get the blaster's in to the country, but it will depend heavily on whether the shipping costs makes it economical. Side Note: I won't be making profit out of this - just spreading the love!!

    Cheers,

    Quick update - the RFSG will be a fair bit more expensive than originally estimated - it weighs nearly double that of the PAS. At this stage, I'm probably going to concentrate on the PAS, as they're lighter. I will continue to see what price I can get on the RFSG, I'm not giving up that easily.

    Current interest:

    8 x PAS
    6 x RFSG

    Cheers,

    How much more expensive would that be ? I'd be slightly turned off if it were to exceed 130 for the blaster itself. Oh and add me into the PAS please ! If things go irky with the RFS, I settle for a PAS.

    I'm still looking in to costing, but I wouldn't go through with it myself if it exceeds $130.

    $35 - $45 USD - and they're discontinued, which makes them rare. Look at prices being paid for AT3K's, Nerf Crossbow's etc. Shipping to Australia has to be done via third-party, which has extra fees on top of the phenomenal shipping rates. Plus, I'm taking a big risk with products not arriving/seized by custom's etc.
    Vulcan's cost around $100 when they were first released...

    Hopefully it's worth it in the end. But also hoping it's not too pricey either.

    I would send a photo and email it to customs and tell them what you intend to do.

    Customs will be all over these i think..

    Yep.
    International shipping ain't cheap; and a deputy (middleman) service is required, which a commission fee is charged.

    I've had plenty of dealings with international postage and deputy services, because of my expensive Japanese hobby, so I consider this unit pricing to be agreeable.

    Once I get it all sorted, and find out if my 3rd party can organise delivery, I'll definitely do what you suggest. They're not prohibited, that much I'm sure of. But it will make the process run alot smoother if I take a pro-active approach with Customs.

    I totally agree, it's worth it, I'm just saying for a toy that costs like Clunk said, $40, it's a lot. Yeah, definitely get customs sorted out, that would be the worst thing.. And if they were seized, that's over a grand of our hard earned dollars gone, and counting.

    It's not "be all, end all" with customs. If they detain a package, and it's only prohibited/questionable and not outright illegal, they send you a letter to inform you of the impoundment. There's a couple of avenue's that I can pursue to get them released from that point - especially once they determine that they're only toy guns made of plastic, and less than 70cm long.

    The biggest thing in my favour would be the tens of thousands of Nerf/buzzbee etc blaster's imported for retail sales in to the country each year.

    That's a good point. I can see them seizing them because they look like guns or whatever, but it would be pretty simple to have them released. I mean, the PAS shoots foam balls, doesn't it..? I've had things imported like knives and had no trouble at all, to my surprise. Sometimes I just get a note to say they opened it and declared it not dangerous.
