NSW Firearms Registry releases information for collectors.

Letter from the Firearms Registry - click here.

Note the fee exemption for the permit. This saves us $127.00!

Supplementary Instructions for collectors - click here.

P638 form - click here.

Safe storage requirements - click here.

In summary, the safe storage requirements are as follows:

"RECOMMENDED LEVEL 3 SAFE STORAGE FOR PROHIBITED FIREARMS / WEAPONS

This should not be too much for collectors, being a secure room with a grille on the window. I was doing this anyway as a security measure for my collection. However, you are prohibited from displaying Megatron outside that room.

Update on collectors' club

The club is near completion! I have almost finished the rules of association and will be posting details on how to join shortly. I will then be able to supply the necessary confirmation to the Firearms Registry that you are a member of the collectors' club.

Please stay tuned for detailed instructions on what to do including a simple checklist.

Announcement on 25 September 2007 by NSW Police Minister David Campbell. Click here

I am setting up a collector's club which will be open for collectors to join, and thereby fulfil one of the requirements for owning Masterpiece Megatron. To quote the Minister, the requirements are as follows:

·         Undergoing a criminal and probity check;

·         Providing a genuine reason for ownership of the toy;

·         Providing proof of membership to a collector’s club; and

·         Abiding by safe storage, surrender and disposal requirements.

The criminal and probity check is a Firearms Registry requirement, and usually done by local police.

A genuine reason for ownership of the toy is that a person is a collector of Transformers.

Proof of membership of a collector's club will be part of what I will provide in the club.

Safe storage includes a locked cabinet. I recommend the following:

Display and Rack Systems

I will update this site as the club progresses with more details on how to join.

Thanks for your support!
