Lucky NZ, these better get here soon, I know alot of fans hate them, but I like them(at least StarScream) better than the other versions.

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.
