nathans of the Ozformers board has spotted the Transformers Movie Screen Battle Packs featuring Longarm Final Stand and Barricade First Encounter Sets at his local Toys 'R' Us.

The sets are expensive at $49.99 a piece, and have yet to be spotted elsewhere in Australia so may not be available at your local Toys 'R' Us.

To read the original post, please click here.

-UPDATE-
Seibertron's own Pirate Man has also found the sets at Toys 'R' Us Rundle Mall, Adelaide:

Same price, $49.99 each.

Well that only took forever!

To bad for them too, I got both mine off Ebay for a pretty good price(only about $5 over retail).

To bad they dropped the ball on this figures distribution, but you it's Walmart, we all saw it coming :|

Took long enough. Might've been smart to do it before Christmas, that way my parents wouldn't have needed to go to literally 30 Wal-Marts to find one. :roll:

I drove two hours to get mine. Then like 2 weeks later I see it in the area.

I'm glad to see this, because I'm hoping they offer those Cybertron repaint movie figs online too. I have bad luck with the Walmart exclusives locally and I'm thinking I won't see those out.

Only around 50 bucks? Darn it, I knew this would happen! I ordered mine from BBTS for a bit over a hundred dollers to avoid the fuss, and on Walmart.com its half that price! :-x I thought it wasn't going to show on their website, ever!

Probably those scene action pack set things. I went to three Walmarts today and saw 2 Barricade (First Encounter?) and 2 Towed to Saftey sets at each one. The paint was sloppy on every Barricade I saw.

That I refused to do on principal. After I got tired of looking in all my Walmarts and gave up on their site I just started browsing Ebay for the best deal.

Hell Ebay averaged $70 less shipping for this fig. The folks at BBTS should be shot for charging what they did :-x

I actually found MP Starscream at the WM in Sturbridge, MA marked down to $30.00. I already had one, but at that price, I had to pick up a second. :grin:

If a non or even new comer to Transformers watched the old movie and we told that joke they would not laugh what so ever...just goes to show how Transfans think.

I put one in my basket a while back, but put it back on the shelf, along with about six of them. I decided at the time not to spend the money. I got the free shipping to the store, so I'm good.

I didn't see this thread until this morning. When I first clicked on the link they were out of stock. I checked back a little while later and it was in stock so I quickly placed my order with free shippping! I checked back a little while later and he was out of stock again.

only saw him once in early Nov. (b/c I knew what i was doing mainly) and NEVER have seen him at any other walmarts at all since. What a shame. Far and away the 2007 Toy of the Year.
Re: Transformers Movie Screen Battle Packs found in Australia (599204)
Posted by Moonbase2 on January 9th, 2008 @ 8:35pm CST
He was a shelfwarmer for a while at my Walmart, til parents were desperate to get a cool gift, I guess.

picked mine up at walmart today. Box was impeccable (not that it matters to me since I throw boxes away).

What city/state did you guys find it (Megatronbomb and unicron129). I've been trying to find him as I really want it. Heard he went down to $30, not sure if that is all Wal-Marts, but makes me want him more.

Thanks

You guys who have found him at the stores are lucky. The Wal-Marts here never had him. I never saw him. Makes me sad. I may have to go to ebay or something now if Wal-Mart.com is sold out.

I'm over here in Riverside, so Long Beach is a bit down the ways from me. If it was the last one there then for sure it wouldn't be worth my drive.

Yeah, have you tried Frank and Sons in Industry. They will overcharge, but you can save on shipping if you were going the epay route.

I never received a cancellation notice from WalMart.com. So yesterday I was checking my bank account and noticed that $50 from WalMart.com was charged. I checked my email again, still haven't received a shipping notice. So I logged onto my WalMart.com account and it shows that my MP Starscreamm has shipped and should be arriving somewhere between the 23rd - 28th. I am glad that I'll be getting it but damn what a clusterf_ck of a process.

My backordered MP SS got CANCELLED yesterday afternoon :sad:

You can't imagine how pissed I am about it either. :-x

eBay prices are not too bad sometimes, but I really didn't want to spend too much more than retail for it.
