From the product manager (via Customer Service, who put me on hold to ask) I was told that it was offered to retailers here, but none would take it at this time...
I've now rung up ToysRUs, just in case... and it was lucky I did.
This isn't going to help Hasbro's image here, but they gave me the wrong information. (looks like the retailers know more about Hasbro's products than Hasbro does)
Masterpiece Optimus Prime WILL BE HERE.
ToysRUs have two shipments coming in. One in late September (in stores early October), one in November (in stores for Christmas).
Price will be AU$150.
Here's a few images from the Seibertron.com BotCon 2012 gallery:
