New Australia Sightings include Studio Series 86 Voyagers, Netflix Wave 2 Toys and G1 Reissues

Motto: "'till All Are One"
We have some fun news for Australians. The voyagers Hot Rod and Scourge from Transformers Studio Series 86 have been spotted. Granted, it's in a Toy Kingdom store, which only has 3 locations in the country. But that is a Toyworld franchise, so they may be coming to Toyworlds soon. We also got word that the Netflix voyagers have appeared at Kmarts (where they are exclusive) in Perth. Griffin of Ozformers took the time to remind fellow fans how they got there since Australia was initially not slated to receive any wave 2 toys:

Wave 2 Netflix Voyager Transformers (Optimus & Soundwave) found at several Kmarts in Perth.
Fingers crossed that they go to Kmart stores in other states, and that all of the stock didn't end up getting sent to the one state (WA).
Image here is from this week's Kmart catalogue, which doesn't have sale prices, but just promotes current items at their regular price... showing us Optimus and Soundwave, which was a bit of a tease before they were found in WA Kmarts.
With the wave 2 Leader pack showing up on the EB Games website, this means we did manage to get all of the first two waves in Australia... even if it has been a bit of a challenge getting them all before many of them quickly disappeared from stores.
(remember, we weren't even going to get any of wave 2 here until the people at the Australian branch of Hasbro went begging for stock, just for us fans - they can't get their hands on everything we would want to see here, but this was a good one for them to succeed on securing)


Speaking of KMart exclusives, some G1 reissues were also found. Those being the second wave of Minibots and Soundwave.

Soundwave & Buzzsaw - $79
cassettes Ravage & Rumble - $39
cassettes Frenzy & Lazerbeak - $39

Thanks WJ!
OKay, Feb 1st, thanks for the info straight from Hasbro.

But, you wrote " The voyagers Hot Rod and Scourge from Transformers Studio Series 86 have been spotted."

Do you think they were put out early by mistake and won't be available in most places until Feb 1st, or does this mean they might get an early release? Do they sometimes get released earlier than the stated date?

Thanks!

Yes, toys are often released at retail before the release date. And at other times, they come out later.

Transformers Studio Series SS 86 Voyager and Deluxe Figures Found at Kmart Australia

Postby william-james88 » Tue Dec 15, 2020 11:15 pm

Motto: "'till All Are One"
While the Studio Seires SS 86 voyagers were found in Australia a few days ago, it was in a small chain. But now, they have been found in Kmart. And not only that, but the SS 86 deluxe class toys, Jazz, Kup, & Blurr, have also been found there. Ozformers posted about this on their Facebook page providing info on the exact location and why they think they were put on shelves early:

When the Voyagers were found at a couple of Toyworlds in Victoria last week, it was assumed to be another case of Toyworld releasing toys too early, but today they were being found at Kmart stores in Victoria, along with the Deluxe wave as well... so it looks like this next wave of Studio Series toys, featuring characters from the 1986 Transformers Movie, are indeed being released early in Australia (before any other country), to cash in on Christmas.
Fingers crossed we see these at more stores around the country, and the Leader pack (Grimlock with Wheelie) as well.

Wow, I totally misread that. I thought you said it was yours, and I was happy for you.
Sorry about how that looked.

Transformers Kingdom T-Wrecks and Rodimus Prime Found in Australia

Postby william-james88 » Sun May 23, 2021 8:39 pm

Motto: "'till All Are One"
You read that right, a toy that has yet to be officially revealed by Hasbro, T-Wrecks, has been found in stores. If only they had an event to reveal him before he was found but alas. As suspected, he is in Kingdom packaging. This is said to be a Red Card exclusive at Target in the US. It was found at Toyworld in Australia and posted on Reddit. By zooming in, we can see that the sample we saw earlier had the correct head, which is the same as Beast Wars Megatron.

Speaking of toys found in Australia, we also have commander class Rodimus Prime. Transformers Kingdom Rodimus Prime was spotted on the shelves at a Big W store in Miranda. The price was AU$149. That was posted on Twitter.
