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

I found TF Prime at my local target in Lithgow.
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.

Weaponizer optimus and bee along with Prime wave 1 and quite a few DOTM deluxes along with movie trilogy deluxe optimus and Human Alliance dare-devil squad (which I thought was a k-mart exclusive) at port target and remote controled bumblebee, knock-out and optimus and port toyworld and Big-w

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

Transformers Prime Cyberverse Optimus Maximus is about to hit the shelves at Port Macquarie Toyworld, glanced out the back at the new stock before I left this arvo to see the boxes sitting there. I'm not sure if there was anything else amongst the pile of new stock

Brawl and Blastoff at Port Toyworld along with one optimus maximus, other than that every store has only prime wave 1. There was a few transformer fans out and about today, all seemed dissapointed about this series lack of new figures

I was surprised enough to find Prime voyager wave 2 Starscream and Bulkhead at Forster K-Mart. I seriously doubting whether or not these things existed or if they were just urban legends. At the current rate of wave 2 voyagers coming out I won't see Grimlock till 2015

So according to Ozformers, we arent going to see the Blaster and Grimlock Wave here, along with, the new Generations legends and deluxes (Orion Pax, Bumblebee, Megatron, Trailbreaker), which kinda sucks :-( But at Target we have released legion class beast hunters, a bit behind Big W etc.
