Something really odd at Port Target. It was classic two-pack deluxe Optimus and Megatron, but in generations packaging

Is it the green tank g2 style Megatron? I believe this is an exclusive of sorts for Targets upcoming toysale. You can find it on thier website and it drops ten bucks during the sale. So hold off if you can!

Yep that's the one. I got the pack when it came out in the classics line so it's an easy pass. BTW Rescue Bots at Port Macquarie Target and seemingly endless amounts of deluxe Optimus Primes at Big W

Hey folks, has anyone seen the Leader class starscream in Melbourne? Watched some video reviews and I can't believe how awesome it is and why I still haven't bought it yet.

For anyone in Hobart, the Kmart Eastlands has the latest waves of RTS deluxes. Warpath, wheeljack and THundercracker. Its the first time I've seen them down here. Would have picked them up but They are already in my Pile of loot.

Jetwing prime is now in at Port toyworld. We also have the new Anakin/Darth Vader star destroyer TF in the store, it's not even suppost to be out yet so there's a chance to pick him up early

Is there anyone from Tas lurking out there? There are currently next to no transformers in any of the stores around Hobart. Mainly cyberverse from DOTM. Its usually pretty grim down here at the best of times, but I havent bought a fig at retail since Solar storm Grapple.

Theres still a freaking Camshaft from the first film on the shelf at Toyworld! :lol:

True story.

TRANSFORMERS PRIME IS OUT IN PORTMACQUARIE TOYWORLD!!!!!!!

It was pretty frustrating for me working my shift and continuously walking past them until the end of the day when I could finally pick some up. Picked up Wheeljack, Soundwave and Megatron.

I must say, they're all pretty bangin'

Target Glenorchy (just outside Hobart) have recieved the first wave of Prime RID deluxe figs. Im not sure of the price point yet but recieved a photo of the stock from a friend there. Heading in this arfternoon to pick up Soundwave. Considering that we have them down here, its not a bad bet that most of the Target stores on the mainland now have them so go check them out.

Checked out my local target yesterday. Amongst all the deluxe DOTM bumblebee's and crankcase's there was a single TF: Prime Soundwave, that was the only TF: Prime merchandise they had. Either the rest were seperate somewhere and this one was misplaced, or all their other TF: Prime stock had sold out (even all the bumblebees), or they had only been bothered to put one figure on display. It's all quite puzzling :-?

Well my local target only received two cases of 8 deluxe figures, so its a possibility they could have sold out if they received the same amount. But finding a Soundwave on the shelf and no Bumblebees?? Its unheard of! :-?

Anyways I picked mine up and Target currently has 20% off its toys this week so the deluxe figs were a pretty good purchase at $22 a pop.

I checked out Target again today and the rest of the figures were out all at $22 each as well. It was still odd however to have a soundwave and no bumblebees

There were 3 bumblebees, 1 cliffjumper, 1 wheeljack, 1 megatron and several primes.

How much was the entertainment pack? It is currently on sale at Myer at the moment but its still $49.00. For two deluxes I just think its a bit steep.

A quick question: Has anyone actually seen Prime wave 2 yet? I've been hunting for Arcee and Ratchet for what feels like ages, I've asked my boss when we'll be getting them but he's not sure yet. It's getting quite frustrating going into store just to see shelves and shelves and shelves and shelves and shelves and shelves and shelves and shelves and of bumblebees.

Transformers Prime wave 1, deluxes, voyagers, cyberverse, are still at Port Macquarie Toyworld and Big W along with botshots and some ROTF Brawns at Toyworld

The targets and Big W's around here are still stocked with wave 1. I haven't seen any wave 2 at all. I plan on checking out K-mart in the next couple of days but I don't hold out much hope.

Still no sign of prime wave 2 though ( :evil: )

Cyberverse Wheeljack and Knockout playsets at Port Macquarie Toyworld along with remote controlled Bumble Bee and Knock Out and Weaponizer Optimus and Bumble Bee at Port Macquarie Target. So this means Hasbro is still sending in products so I think it's fair enough to ask (once again) WHERE THE SMEG IS WAVE 2!!!!!!!!!!! :-x
