No doubt, but I'm not entirely sure what the prices were but I have it on good authority that they will be on sale in next weeks catalogue if that helps.

I saw a Generations Jetfire at Toys R Us! It is $89. Cheaper than the Masterpiece Bumblebee I found, which was $99.

It's hit and miss further up the road here. I've seen two limbs and the four smaller guys and a Silverbolt.

Earville Target also had RID figures but they didn't scan with the 20% discount.

Well that's more than up here at least! They haven't touched the TF area at all, still just the same old movie figures.

K-Mart- RID is incoming they have recently cleared their Age of Extinction and Prime figures and have placed tickets for RID products keep an eye out!


They've had the tickets up at mine for over a month. No idea when they're planning on releasing them but geez they're taking forever.

K-Mart CQ update- RID Legend/Legion wave 1 complete (Target also now has these). RID Warrior class Wave 1 are now on the shelf along with Combiner Wars Wave 1 Deluxe and Voyager Coles Group are doing there part still nothing at Big W what was the Transformer shelves is now filled with merchandise for the movie Home (the purple and pink look out of place in the 'boys' section though lol)

Target CQ Rockhampton- Some voyager silverbolts and optimus primes left but no deluxe combiner limbs or rid warrior class. Armada Megatron x2 and some RID legend figures. Lots of construct-o-bot figures and kree-o combiners. Also one each of Voyager AOE 'Sludge', Galvatron, Drift and Hound.

Big W CQ Rockhampton- Nothing not even any shelf space
Big W CQ Yeppoon- Nothing not even any shelf space
(This is hardly surprising as Big W often makes the mistake of ordering way to much of Wave 1 of any transformers line and getting burned in the process gets so bad at times that the regular $30 can drop to $10 for deluxe they also tend to avoid the classic/generation lines)

K-Mart CQ Rockhampton- RID Warrior Grimlock, Bumblebee, Steeljaw and Strongarm (sharpies on special as well if you like the perfect final touch of seibertron's lipstick application for Strongarm) Only one each of the aerialbots remaining in combiner Deluxe as well as one each of the voyager molds. Still a lot of gaps in their shelves so expecting more stock.

All up RID is selling pretty well and its only been out here for approximately 3 weeks. Combiner Wars deluxe likewise but not as fast as RID I'd say once the kids catch onto the combining aspect they will go much faster along with their voyager leaders.

WAVE 2 Deluxe combiners now in Australia at Big W Rockhampton. Along with this Wave 1 RID Warrior class and Wave 1 Combiner Wars Legends. K-Mart has sold out. Keep your eyes open as since the deluxe are here the legends, voyagers and leader class are probably sitting in storage out the back waiting for some shelf space.

Hey it's still a work in progress, I'm getting there....slowly #-o (Honestly can't believe I was able to use my actual last name as a username most sites I've been to already have it taken)

So who was missing from your Big W?

Back to sightings- Toyworld Rockhampton have Wave 2 deluxe (but only 2 Stunticons left), Wave 1 Legends (full set) and 1x Leader Class Megatron (only one left in the entire town now all other leaders are Armada Megatron) Will be checking Big W Yeppoon this weekend.
