Some of the new bot-shots at Port Toyworld, I noticed spin-shot Ironhide, jump-shot Shockwave and flip shot Bumblebee when I was tidying up the shelves today.
Planning to take a squiz in target tomorrow

Prime RID Deluxe wave 3, Generations FOC Deluxe wave 3 and Prime Cyberverse wave 2 at Port Macquarie Target, no signs of the voyagers though :-? but came out with a kickback and a starscream so I'm happy :grin:

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.

That is seriously devastating :-x . I was keen as a bean for some good looking voyagers and I'm sick of going to stores to see the same three voyagers: RID Optimus, BH Optimus and Predaking.

In my area we never got past wave 1 in prime RID voyagers (except for that freak incident with a Starscream and Bulkhead in Forster) or wave 3 in the deluxes (Wave 2 took about 5 months after wave 1 and wave 3 I'd found in Queensland. As for here I saw a Knock-Out ONCE) and it looks like it's going to be the same all over again with beast hunters seeing as generations is pretty much over here in Australia.

Anyway after that little rant, Ultimate Predaking and Optimus Prime at k-mart and target in Tweed Heads. Predaking looks alright but as I've already got the voyager it was an easy pass. Optimus on the other hand just looks... bad.

Beast Hunters deluxe wave 3 (Ratchet, Dreadwing, Skystalker) is at Port Macquarie Target, yet there is no sign of wave 2 anywhere :-? (deluxes or voyagers)

Platinum Edition Ultra Magnus!!!! :D Didn't expect to see him in person ever. found at Target in Lithgow. While he wasn't actually out on shelves (being 15 years old with a casual job helps) I did see him out the back with the Ultimate Class BH figures. Also, my brother sighted a TF Prime: RID Rumble at an Uncle Pete's toys in Gosford, which was unbelievable because I'm sure we never got that far with PRID???

Beast Hunters Cyberverse wave 2 at Lake Cathie Woolworths. Caught me off guard that one did seeing as Prime Cyberverse wave 2 only showed up a couple of weeks back

Kreo's been reduced pretty heavily at Port Macquarie Toyworld and FOC voyager Soundwave and SoundBlaster are at Target

On a side note has anyone seen the Neca Pacific Rim figures in stores? I saw the film on Thursday and suddenly feel a need for a row of Jaegers and Kaiju on my desk...

Beast Hunters Voyagers wave 3 (say what?!) and Prime RID deluxe wave 4 at Port Big W, which is kind of surprising seeing as Shockwave's yet to make an appearance anywhere

Kreo Microchangers Wave 2 at Big W in Penrith Plaza (the wave with Arcee, Lugnut, Hardshell, etc.). I have pics on my phone but It's difficult to upload...
On a side note, but not exactly a sighting, I noticed that Cartoon Network is airing Beast Hunters now. Came home from work today to find Rebellion was on, so I'm assuming that it has been airing for the last few weekends. Episode 5 is next Sunday.

Kinda surprised to see it here so quick.... :KREMZEEK:
