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:
Hasbro's official RRP
Botbots 1-pack - 5
Botbots 5-pack - 15
Botbots 8-pack - 25
-
WFCS BattleM - 10
WFCS MicroM - 20
WFCS Deluxe- - 35
WFCS Voyager - 50

These prices work out to the following in USD, just for comparison:

Botbots 5-pack - 10.74 USD

Fuck knows, but I'm nearly at a point where I'll just give up and walk away from collecting. It's a fucking joke.

As an Aussie I'm sick of finishing lines by going on ebay, that is where I had to get my sludge.

Hobby Link Japan.

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

Good news for Australians who are looking to get their hands on Ectotron but didn't want to import!

Seibertron.com Energon Pub forum member VonDoom has dropped us an e-mail to let us know that EB Games Australia will be the exclusive retailer in Australia for Ectotron, and that he is now available for pre-order!

Ectotron is set to be available from June 6 for $80AUD, but you can secure your pre-order now for $10AUD with options for in-store click-n-collector or home delivery.

Will you be like our Forum Admin Burn and pre-ordering your Ectotron through EB Games Australia? Let us know on the Energon Pub Forums!

You can also pre-order it from Zing, but they're the same company

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.

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.

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.
