Where are Mega Construx Destiny sets actually sold?

Postby calvinium » Fri Dec 29, 2017 9:05 am

I'm really confused by the way Mega Construx Destiny sets are released to market and would like to know how I can find out where and when sets are released, and ultimately purchase them for my private collection.

I live in Australia and I started collecting Mega Bloks/Construx Destiny sets at the end of 2016. I now have a collection of 21 sets:

Hunter Cryptid Armory
Warlock Samsara Armory
Hunter Starwinder Armory
Titan Ruin Wings Armory
Warlock Hezen Lords Armory
Arcadia Jumpship
Sparrow S-10V
Sparrow S-31V
EV-37 Racing Sparrow
EV-41 Racing Sparrow
EV-38 Laurelbearer Sparrow
EV-30 Tumbler Sparrow
Hive Horde Attack
Cabal Gladiator Battle
Fallen Walker
Cabal Interceptor
Atheon
Cabal Harvester Dropship
2016 Fan Expo Exclusive Titan Sunbreaker
2016 PAX West Exclusive Warlock Stormcaller
2017 SDCC Limited Edition Iron Song Ghost Shell

Of that collection, ONLY the first 3 were originally found in a local "brick and mortar" store (EB Games, the Australian branch of GameStop). Everything else had to be imported from online retailers such as ebay and the US Amazon store and either shipped direct, or via re-mailing services that receive parcels from companies that only deliver to US addresses and then forward them on to international addresses. Yes, this means that sometimes the shipping price is as much as 4 times the original price of the product, but this collection has been a labour of love.

So far, the only way I've been able to find out about new releases is by frequently checking the the Mega Construx Destiny page, and then searching various US and Canadian online retailers and store websites for stock. After my most recent acquisition, the huge Cabal Harvester Dropship which incidentally was a really enjoyable build, I found the Dead Orbit Hunter and Future War Cult Titan Armory sets, which first appeared on the Mega Construx site (but with no stocking retailers) back in October, appearing on ebay for over $150 US (incl. shipping to Australia) for the pair because they're now discontinued! Then, today the new figure sets, such as the Endling Warlock ($4.99 USD recommended retail) are appearing on Amazon (US) for $25 + shipping from private sellers, but still without any stocking vendors listed from the "Megabrands" store page.

Can someone, anyone, please tell me how or where new Destiny sets are released into the wild?

Regards,

A "Mega Frustrated" Guardian

I don't know about Oz, but I did see the Heroes minifigs, the new Sparrows (Gjallarwing and Avalon Coursier), and the Heavy Pike at my local Target (U.S.).

Not all Game Stops carry them sadly. Here in Chicago finding ANY Mega brands stuff is hard

On the plus side: after totally gutting their MC Destiny stock last year, my local Walmart got in a supply of the Hero minifigs!
