I did the biggest double-take when i saw these on the shelf at one of my local The Warehouses, there are only bout five of each at the one I went to, but I've heard other stores have them in stock too.

They are priced NZ$29.99 ea.

Hmm, looks like they'll be here soon, if they're not already. Nice.

Yeah they are great figures (I got myself Prime, SS soon), good start to the movie toys, doubt we will see any new toys until the movie is released out here.

Well the plushies have been out in the land of the long white cloud for nearly a month and have not been spotted in Australia yet, so it might still be some time before we see the "rocklords".

Still with a movie line release date in early June, these figures should be out at the latest in mid may, since they are the preview line.

Pirates is oput about a month before Transformers is, so it actually is about right, the Transformers figures should be out and a bout 3-4 weeks before the movie.

The Kiwi's have been getting figures before the Aussie mainland since (at least, if not earlier) the Energon line. What is odd that many figures that do nothing but sit in shelves in mass numbers in Kiwiland, are rarities that are hard to track down in Australia until many months later.

Just a reminder: they should be out today here in the states.

My vote for the HOF goes to my favorite Transformer, Kup, to the Headmasters (who still need new figures that aren't just the characters without their master components) and to seibertron.com for for being the ultimate TF resource.

If you are based in Sydney dont bother, the New Zealand "Warehouse" has no relation to the Australian version of the Warehouse (which is just a large Crazy Clints)
I'm led to believe that the Kiwi Warehouse is more like a Kmart or Big W style store, but please correct me if I am wrong.

Indeed it is. And NZ being called Australia jr? What's up with that?! I never heard of the superior version being the junior before :P And cricket doesn't count!

But $29.99, eh? Typical. Toyworld had them going for $35 at Armageddon. Figures Toyworld would jack the prices up to a rip-off point.

Jeez, $35 for a deluxe rock with wheels? That is steep, but I expect in a few years that will be the standard deluxe price, as Transformers figures prices keep seeping upwards (even though the AU$ and NZ$ keeping going up as well). The $29.99 price is still about $5 more than the average deluxe price too.
Guess Hasbro knows they are going to have to milk every cent out of these figures.

Still no sighting on "the Mainland" :P I thought for sure that Adelaide or Brisbane would have had them released by now.
