According to fellow fansite Ozformers and its admin griffin, the second wave of Transformers Authentics have made it to Australian retail - and by second wave, we mean the entirety of the one 5 inch Grimlock figure with limited articulation, joining the likes of the 5-inch Authentics Bumblebee, Megatron, Optimus Prime and Starscream we have already seen released.

Read below the image for more details, along with some Bumblebee Movie toys also sighted in shops in Queensland, Australia, and join the discussion in the Energon Pub!

Re: Transformers Authentics 5 inch Grimlock Sighted at Australian Retail (1995031)

In what more-or-less constitutes another stage in an ongoing saga, US and International Amazon has resumed shipping its products to Australian customers this morning. This is quite good news for Australian online collectors, but given the time since the last development, a small amount of background may not go amiss.

In mid-2017, the Australian government announced its intent to apply GST on imports of all value, even below $1000 (the previous minimum to apply tax). In response some large international retailers, eBay and Amazon included, threatened to stop shipping items from their international branches to Australia. Though the change was subsequently postponed for a year, in mid-2018 it came into effect - and while eBay simply added GST for Australian buyers, Amazon followed through and prevented Australian customers from purchasing products from anywhere outside Australia.

Now it seems that decision has finally been reversed, allowing Australians to once again purchase and ship items from outside Australia. Though currently this is only possible on items sold directly by Amazon - third party sellers outside Australia still can't be bought from - this is great news for Australian collectors getting fed up with Amazon Australia's highly limited selection of Transformers, among other products.

If you're an Australian collector, how will this change influence your buying? Will it attract you back to buying from Amazon, or is it too late for you? Let us know on the Energon Pub Forums, and as always, stay tuned to Seibertron.com!

Thanks to the Ozformers Facebook page, we now bring you news of several sightings in Australia, including the Tiny Changers Wave 2 which initially wasn't slated for a release but does indeed arrive.

Here are the sightings:

- Cyberverse 1 step wave 2 (Optimus, Megatron and Starscream) found at a Big W in Brisbane (Kuraby)

Image

- Studio Series deluxe Wave 4 (Dropkick and KSI Sentry, with more potential stock of VW Bumblebee) found at a Target in Sydney. Photo credit here goes to Ozformers member dirge.

Image

Image

Image

- Energon Igniters Power series wave 2 (jet Shatter, Optimus, Blitzwing), seen at Kmart first.

Image

Image

Image

- TF4 movie Tiny Changers wave 2 (we weren't supposed to be getting these here, so seeing them here 16 months after being released globally is a surprise)... seen at Coles in Brisbane first.

Image

- RID Crash Combiners wave 4 (Bisk/Saberhorn & Optimus/Grimlock), also not supposed to be released here, seen at clearance store TKMAXX.

Image

Image

- Cyber Commanders Bumblebee and Optimus have arrived at Aldi.

Image

Image

- Cyberverse Warriors wave 2 (Megatron, Acid Storm and Windblade). These were found at a Target in Melbourne.

Image



Last but by no means least, Kmart have also listed two Bumblebee movie toys that are exclusive to Target in the US.

- Bumblebee Greatest Hits Cassette Pack – AU$45.

Image

- Titan Changer Musix FX Bumblebee– AU$25.

I think Hasbro distribution have gone "You know what Australia is going to want? Outback. They're going to want Outback. Only send a few of the early Legends wave because they won't sell because Australians are going to want Outback and they're going to get LOTS of Outback."

Wave 5 of Studio Series (or 2019 wave 1 as Hasbro calls it) has yet to be found in the US, but fellow Seibetronian Rainmaker has found the delues in Australia. This wave include Barricade, Sideswipe, Clunker Bumblebee, WWII Bumblebee and everyone's favourite, Crankcase.

These were found in KMart for $30 AUD (which is around $21.50 USD). If anyone else spots these in Australia, let your fellow Aussie friends know in the sightings thread. None of the classes for wave 5 (deluxes, voyager or leaders) have been found in several other areas of the world, like the US, so let us know if you find them.

eh, Crankcase ain't a bad figure, just a baffling choice of mold. I'd really love to know Hasbro's reasons for not using the original Berserker mold. Did someone there lose that mold, maybe down the back of the couch or something? I'm saying mold too much in a short post. Mold.



Mold. :michaelbay:


I'm still impatiently waiting for the online retailers here in UK to get Swipe and Baz back in stock. I got Jetfire and Optimus from two different sites and neither has those two deluxes in at the moment. One of them I think did but sold out really quickly (as did Prime, Jetfire, Boney and Moonatron, but of course Crank & Clunk are still available) and are waiting restock.

Seibertronian Rainmaker found several toys he had not seen on the shelves yet in Ausrtalia. One of them is MPM Barricade for $159.99S AUD and the Vission Vision Bumblebee Movie toys that have already been spotted in the US. If you find these toys in your area, or if there are other toys you wish to share with the community, you can post in our sightings forum or sighitngs section.

If I had realised those were the wave 2 battlemasters I would've taken pictures. But unfortunately I won't be there again until next week or so. I didn't bother taking pictures of the Siege toys because there were already reports of it in Australia at Toyworld and now I regret not taking them.

Edit: If I'm lucky I can be there by Sunday

Thanks to the keen eye of fellow Seibetronian Prismartyr, we have new sightings for several Bumblebee-series figures. Found at a Big W in Erina, New South Wales in Australia, the figures found include Energon Igniters Power Series Ratchet and Nitro Series Blitzwing and Dropkick, though Dropkick was not photographed.

Astute readers will recall the memorable discovery of Ratchet prior to a reveal from Hasbro late last year in the US, so it appears the figure is finally seeing better distribution among foreign markets.

As always, be sure to be neighborly and report your sightings of any of these figures in your location’s sightings forum and be sure to stay tuned to Seibertron.com for more Transformers news and reviews.

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 5-pack - 15
Botbots 8-pack - 25
-
WFCS BattleM - 10
WFCS MicroM - 20
WFCS Deluxe- - 35
WFCS Voyager - 50
WFCS Leader- - 90


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

Botbots 1-pack - 3.58 USD
Botbots 5-pack - 10.74 USD
Botbots 8-pack - 17.91 USD

WFCS MicroM - 14.32 USD
WFCS Deluxe- - 25.07 USD

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

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.

Image

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.

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.

Just in from Ozformers on Facebook we have word that the new Transformers Studio Series figures, Longhaul and KSI Boss, have been spotted at a local Toy World in Canberra! Whether you're nearby or not these new bots can't be far from showing up at your local brick and mortar stores.

From Ozformers:
"After two waves of Studio Series Voyagers were found in Australia during June (wave 3 Ironhide and wave 6 Rampage & Optimus), a third wave of Voyagers were apparently found at a Toyworld in Canberra in the final days of last month - wave 7 TF2 Long Haul (new) and TF4 KSI Boss (redeco Nitro Zeus). If these are now out here, it would be another world first for the month.
If you see these ones as well in the next week, let us know, as it is nice to see new toys here, and before the rest of the world.

Thanks to Ozformers we've learned the upcoming Japanese Transformers 35th Convoy and Optimus Prime Set And MP19+ Smokescreen are going to be EB Games And Zing Exclusives once released in Australia! Both items are currently up for pre-order at the respective sites.

The two pack features a G1 Optimus Prime along with a repainted Optimus SS38 from Bumblebee with a paint job closer to his G1 counterpart. MP Smokescreen plus has that slick closer to the G1 cartoon paint job.

From Ozformers regarding the Optimus set:
"A couple of new pre-order listings on Zing and EB Games for release early next year...
Japanese 35th Anniversary Optimus & Convoy set - this one is a real surprise, and a real treat for us here in Australia. This is a TakaraTomyMall exclusive in Japan (which would also be released in Asia), of two separately packed toys in Gen1 style packaging. One is a reissue of the 1984 Optimus Prime toy (cab only) which was called Convoy in Japan, while the other is a very minor redeco of the 2019 Studio Series Voyager Optimus Prime from the Bumblebee Movie.
Release date here - January 5th 2020
Price - AU$160 (pre-order deposit of $50)"

And they provide the links for the two sites for the Optimus Prime set, here for EB Games, and here for Zing.

Here's their statement on Smokescreen:
"MP-19+ Smokescreen (Anime redeco) - Entertainment Earth in America started releasing these Japanese MP toys earlier this year, with an English slipcase but everything else inside should still be Japanese. Smokescreen is the first one to show up here, so we might be end up getting whatever else EE releases in the future.
Release date here - January 26th 2020
Price - AU$130 (pre-order deposit of $30)"
