Animated Jetfire and Jetstorm found in retail...in Australia

Postby i_amtrunks » Mon Dec 08, 2008 11:23 pm

OTCA members Stompy and Jaydisc have found the previously unreleased Transformers Animated two pack of Jetfire and Jetstorm in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, from an independent toy retailer.

Making it even stranger is that figures that were due for an earlier release than the Animated flying twins, such as Shockwave and Skywarp are yet to be spotted on Australian Shelves.

You can check out photographic proof of their purchase by clicking here.

These 2 packs retail for AU$30, slightly more expensive than the standard Deluxe price point. As expected, the two pack comes with the bonus comic, and previews the figures: Swindle, Blurr, Blazing Lockdown, Shockwave and Skywarp on the bottom of the box.
Awesomesauce; Use it, you know you want to.

Bah, at Toy Kingdom. Don't think there's any of those over this side of Oz.

Still cool that they are showing up. As pants as they look, I like the individual robot modes and this will be my first combiner since Defensor when I was a kid.

Lol, Toy Kingdom, really? That's the name of our major toy retailer, the Target/K-Mart equivalent. 8-}

Yuck.. that flame hair or whatever on the orange one make him look more like a ken doll than a transformer. No way will the wonder twins find their way into my collection. More for your guys/gals, though. :grin:

Not much that I have not liked in this line, but this set tops the list IMHO!

Longs for the days of G1 where we only had to worry about Megatron, Soundwave and Laserbeak wanting to be Autobots, Swoop calling himself Tracks and Slingshot calling himself Slingslot!
