Hi people,

I emailed Hasbro yesterday asking if they were planning on bringing Heroscape to Australia. I was pleasantly surprised when I got a reply today!

From customer service:

Hi Shawn

Heroscape is available now at most Toyworld stores. RRP is $110.00. An
expansion set will also be coming in later in the year. Hope this helps.

I'm not even sure if there's a toyworld in Melbourne.

Also not sure if that means that big boys like Target, Kmart, Myer, etc will be bringing any in. If they do, I guess we can expect a lower price point. $110 is still expensive!

Well, good luck to us all!

Shawn

Ooh a little higher, now a bit to the left, a little more, a little more, just a bit more. Oooh yes, that's the spot!

There's a few Toyworlds around. They are pretty much all in the burbs though. Do a search on Toyworld, Victoria, Metropolitan and you'll get a list.

In Sydney
Shawn,

A couple of stores have it here but for $120 so I'm more than happy to organise this for you and send it to Melbourne.

Thanks Neil for offering to get it for me!

Milsims in Melbourne has it for $99 (plus I get 10% discount for being part of a gaming club). It's $155 at Mindgames though. OUCH.

But I'm a cheap bastard. I was hoping big players like Target and Kmart, Toys R Us will get Heroscape and retail it at a more reasonable price.

I like the game but I'm not desperate enought to pay $100 for it. So many game to buy, so thin a wallet.

Discount chains..
Yeah I was kinda hoping that it would be picked up by the big discount chains and be available at a reasonable price here in NZ.

I'll have to check our Toyworld's here.

Steve,

If the Toyworld I visited in suburban Christchurch when briefly in New Zealand a week or so ago is any indication you have almost no chance

US to NZ
I ordered Heroscape and War of the Ring from Fairplay Games and paid a total of NZ$160 for both including shipping.

I was too cheep to pay for air freight so it took 10 weeks to get here by seaarrrh.

Still I got them just before Christmas which was when I first saw them appear in my local shop.

US to NZ as well
heh, I airfreighted mine over with a bunch of other stuff.. the difference was something like US$35 all up which was enough for an impatient sod like me to fork out to get it to me within a week.

I'd like to buy another set though...
