Wait what?????? We need pics


If I had realised those were the wave 2 battlemasters I would've taken pictures. But unfortunately I won't be there again until next week or so. I didn't bother taking pictures of the Siege toys because there were already reports of it in Australia at Toyworld and now I regret not taking them.

Edit: If I'm lucky I can be there by Sunday

This image is not my own, I got it from Discord by an Australian user called DrLockdown. I am using it show proof of the wave 2 Battlemasters until I can get my own, he bought these at a store called Hobbyco which I had not have heard of until now. Pteraxadon and Aimless lie next to Lionizer.

Energon Igniters Power Series Ratchet and Nitro Series Blitzwing and Dropkick sighted in Australia

Motto: "Manners make the man."
Weapon: Sonic Umbrella
Thanks to the keen eye of fellow Seibetronian Prismartyr, we have new sightings for several Bumblebee-series figures. Found at a Big W in Erina, New South Wales in Australia, the figures found include Energon Igniters Power Series Ratchet and Nitro Series Blitzwing and Dropkick, though Dropkick was not photographed.

Astute readers will recall the memorable discovery of Ratchet prior to a reveal from Hasbro late last year in the US, so it appears the figure is finally seeing better distribution among foreign markets.

As always, be sure to be neighborly and report your sightings of any of these figures in your location’s sightings forum and be sure to stay tuned to Seibertron.com for more Transformers news and reviews.

Thanks to a post on Ozformers' Facebook page we have some confirmation of pricepoints on Transformers toylines that will be (or are) available for sale this year in Australia. Hasbro's official suggested retail pricing is as follows, though as the post states, various retailers look to be more expensive than others:

Botbots 8-pack - 25
-
WFCS BattleM - 10
WFCS MicroM - 20

Hobby Link Japan.

Even with the 10% GST and postage they'll probably work out cheaper than the eBay sellers.

Golden Lagoon Sets Sighted In Australia

Postby ZeroWolf » Sat Apr 13, 2019 2:52 pm

Motto: "My past no longer binds my future..."
Weapon: Battle Blades
Thanks to the hard work of the Ozformers Facebook group, we've learned that the exclusive Golden Lagoon Sets that Takara Tomy produced have made it to Australian shores via the Mr Toys Toy World stores. They currently only operate in one area of the country but Ozformers point out they could trickle to other Toyworld locations. Check out the sighting image which we've mirrored below for your convenience.

Image

The two Golden Lagoon Sets are all redecos of previously released figures. With one set containing Perceptor, Seaspray and Beachcomber, and the other containing Starscream (a redeco of Ghost Starscream released as part of Unite Warriors Grand Galvatron). They were priced at Aus$129 and Aus$80 respectively.

Will any of our Australian members be chasing down these toys? Would anyone be interested in a golden Starscream limb for a combiner? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

Finally! It's about Goddamned time we got word of Shadow Panther's arrival after Toys R Us died (RIP) I Just went to the Rothwell Toyworld here in Brisbane. They didn't have The Golden Lagoon Sets or Shadow Panther but they said The City, Chermside , Indooropily and a few other places I didn't catch did. Starscream seems sold out everywhere but They have The Golden Lagoon 3 Pack and Shadow Panther. I'll ask at the Indooropily and Chermside stores if they plan on Restocking Starscream as soon as I can.

As for me I'm 100% going for all of them.

Has anyone spotted Siege Voyager Optimus and Megatron at major retailers yet? (Kmart, BigW, Target...) every store I’ve been too or called have not had wave 1 stock of anything (this is in Victoria). Really frustrating how they’ve skipped a wave? Is that normal? I’m not quite sure how distribution really works.

Just a heads up, Toys 'R' Us is looking to relaunch (via a license with Hobby Warehouse) as an online outlet with the intention to hopefully one day re-open physical stores.

http://www.toysrus.com.au/

At this stage it's set to go live on the 12th June.

Ectotron via EB Games/Zing has been delayed until September.

Not a good thing if you're trying to establish yourself as the place for "exclusives"

Toys 'R' Us is back in Australia via toysrus.com.au.

At the moment it's just a small selection of Transformers from TLK, RID and Titans Return.

Rundown of Australian Sightings with New Cyberverse Ark Power Prime, Siege Wave 3 And More

Postby william-james88 » Mon Jun 17, 2019 11:10 am

There is a lot going on in Australia as far as Transformers sightings go. For starters, it is the first place to get the Cyberverse Spark Armour Ark Power Optimus Prime. It is exclusive to Big W stores.

You can see it in this image below along with other cool toys now at mass retail in Australia, like the Siege wave 2 deluxes and Studio Series wave 6 deluxes.

Plus, Big W got the MPM stock from Toysrus, so you can get MPM Barricade and Bumblebee there. And on thursday, they are on sale. You can see more info on the sale below.

Speaking of Toysrus, the online store has been bought and reopened under a new owner, but the only Transformers stock is leftover from 2-3 years ago. You can still visit it here. We hope it will be the destination for current toys going forward but there is no word on that being the case with Transformers yet.

Australia also got the wave 3 Siege deluxes (the Reflector wave) AND Battlemasters at Toyworld, a collectable store.

Lastly, Studio Series voyager Bumblebee Movie Optimus Prime and Rampage were found at Target, this is the first sighting of new voyagers in the Studio Series line since the year began.

All of this info was found on the Ozformers Facebook page.
