eBay's even cheaper! 85!

It costs more in Australia because of the import I guess, I don't know where they make the kits.

Yes, it has to do with the import.

If I remember correctly, Australia puts higher tax duty or something on this kind of product (models) which is why all GW products generally cost more than those of the UK & US ones.

Look around your local area for independent shops. There are some shops here in Melbourne where they always do a 10% discount from the GW original prices. Oh, if by chance around the end-of-financial-year period in Australia, those shops may also do something extra on top of the 10% discount. (That is when I started buying quite a lot & got lots of things. )

I got the mega force from hobbytown for 125 bucks. Discounted once because they always do that, and once more because i play there alot and help newer players out. It was pretty sweet

US prices I would expect to be off from worldwide prices because the greenback sucks right now. Their dollar has tanked a fair bit the last year or two and so things look cheaper when you view the American prices.

The Megaforce is $250 Canadian, and that's way more than $175US. $200 would be more accurate these days. But that's why gamers are encouraged to make connections, either with store owners/employees, people they know in other countries, or simply online stores that ship out of other places. Most places have a couple of GW items that are either way above or way below the standard international pricing... so it should balance out.

AHHHHHH! now I understand ;D. This would make sence, but I think that an extra 70 aussie dollars is a bit harsh, especially just for an import. :P

Could you tell me where exactly these shops are located. this would be a big help as I am on a bit of a tight budget. :

Yup, that is one of them. I can tell you that there was a 1 time 20% discount sales which took place in June. That was when I took out my spending money for lots of Imperial Guard. ;D (PM me if you would like to see what I actually bought as I don't want to spam/drag this off-topic nor showing off here.)

And here is another place where you can get some models.

http://www.mindgamesmelbourne.com/

There are also some 2nd hand stuffs on sales as well in the shop. That sort of thing show up sometimes & are often bought quickly when they do show up. I was lucky a few times myself.

Oh, and did I mention that I got 6 Space Marine Dreadnoughts for about AUS $47 each? :
