Apologies for the slow response!
I've just had a look on the website again, it seems they only stock 110w & 150w power bricks which is not exactly what you were looking for
Do you definitely need a 120w or 135w power brick? I bought 110w to be on the safe side, though am consuming much less power than that - see my test results below:
67w max whilst running Prime95 (this stresses the CPU much more than you would manage in normal usage). 43w max playing 1080p video in XBMC. To put those figures into context I'm using the ASRock A75M-ITX, A6-3500, Scythe SCSK-1100, one case fan, 4GB RAM & 64GB SSD. I'm also currently using one USB port for an IR Reciever.
I obviously can't guarantee you would achieve these exact figures given that meters aren't 100% accurate and I'm using a PicoPSU rather than the Antec version, but should give you some indication of power consumption.
Also worth mentioning that I've had no issues with the motherboard at all and have been running it for a good couple of months now. Sure you will be very happy if/when you join the A6 club
