Just in from Ozformers on Facebook we have word that the new Transformers Studio Series figures, Long Haul 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)"


Image

Image

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)"

And they provide the links for the two sites for Smokescreen, here for EB Games, and here for Zing.

Happy hunting all our Australian members here's hoping you can get every special edition and exclusive you're looking for. Make sure to post your thoughts in the forums and stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news!

EB Games canada always gets the MPs from now one, just like entertainment earth. But no one really cares since its consistently more pricey to get it from them than japanese vendors.

While the big Australia Toy Fair reveal was stolen from under their nose, there are lots of new sightings for anticipated toys that hopefully make up for it. These all come from the Ozformers Facebook page. There is even news of a current deal on Transformers at Myer. Monday (the 9th) is the last day of this deal.

"20% off Transformers (and most toys) at Myer this weekend - ends Monday 9th March.
Just in time for some new Earthrise and Studio Series toys, if your nearest Myer has done some re-stocking this week.

Transformers Earthrise updates for Australia.
After they started showing up in some Toyworlds and Myer stores last week, people are now seeing the Deluxe and Voyager sizes at Kmart stores around the country.
Kmart prices are the same as their Siege prices - $29 for Deluxe, $49 for Voyager.
Myer have the Deluxe, Voyager and Leader classes.
Toyworld are still the only ones so far with Micromasters and Battlemasters.
-
Also worth noting that Kmart have been getting in a new shipment of Studio Series toys as well, with the recent wave of Deluxe (Soundwave, Hotrod, Triplets, Bumblebee) and an older wave of Voyager (Long Haul, KSI Boss).
-
Some first sightings from the last week...
- Cyberverse Ultimate w4 Optimus & Shockwave (at Toyworld).
- Cyberverse Ultra w6 Clobber, Hotrod, Bumblebee (at Toyworld).
- Botbots series 5 single packs (yellow bubbles) at a Target in NSW.
- Rescue Bots Academy 4-pack for a very cheap $49 (it has $76 worth of toys) found at Kmart.
- Rescue Bots Mini Racers for $7 (six toys - Optimus, Bumblebee, Heatwave, Hoist, Whirl, Hotshot) found at Kmart."

There is a big sale coming up in Australia's Big W stores in June. The best deal is 44% off all leader class toys, in the various Transformers toy lines. Also, they include Sky Lynx in the sale, meaning he should be in stock there soon. He is meant to be a temporary exclusive where he will only be available at Big W for the first 3 months of release and then come to other retailers as well.

Here is all the info from Ozformers.


BigW mid-year TOY SALE starts soon.
Transformers toys are on page 16 of the catalogue (already on the BigW website).. with some AWESOME prices.
-
Sale starts Online Tuesday JUNE 16th.
Sale prices in-store from Thursday JUNE 18th.
-
Sale ends Wednesday JULY 15th.
-
WFC Skylynx - $119 (save $30 - normally $149)
WFC & Studio Series LEADER - $49 (save $39 - normally $88)
WFC & Studio Series VOYAGER - $35 (save $14 - normally $49)
Bumblebee Movie Energon Ignitors Nitro - $15 (new price)
-
https://www.bigw.com.au/bigw-catalogues
Skylynx is noted as a BigW exclusive, which is true for about 3 months, when it is allowed to be sold by other retailers. (Kmart & Target are NOT getting it)
The examples of the Leader & Voyager toys in the catalogue may not be the new items or waves in the stores for the sale... we will have to wait until the new stock arrives at stores in the next two weeks.
Leader class is not a regular size at BigW, so when their Toy Sale stock sells out, they might not get more in.
The Nitro toys also look to be a one-off shipment, so should stay at $15 until they sell out (they used to be $35).
Both Leader & Voyager are shown with examples of Studio Series and Generations WFC toys, so the sale price should apply to both series.
Scorponok was not scheduled for this sale, but should show up at BigW (and some other retailers) around September/October (subject to demand).

Greasepit, Rotorstorm and Hubcap on EB Games. Also available via Zing. $40AU each, $10AU deposit each. That makes them $11AU more than regular retail price, not too bad, but still a rort.

Also you say $40 AUD is $11 more than retail price, but I can't find deluxes for that price anymore here. They're either all $35 AUD or in the Cyberverse deluxe figure case, $40 AUD.

A post from Ozformers tells us that wave 2 will come to KMart. They are still not sure about the leader class, but the rest should be there, if all goes well, in October. Below you will find an image of the Wave 2 assortment, posted by Takara.

Also, KMart will be getting the G1 Soundwave reissue, finally.

And, Generations Selects Rotorstorm, Greasepit And Hubcap are currently available for preorder from EB Games and Zing for the Australian market. Each figure is listed for $40 AUD, with a $10 AUD deposit. They will be coming out in August.

Heads up ... Scorponok will most likely not see a wide retail release, but Amazon AU currently have him up for pre-order (Sept 1 release date) for $246.25 which is probably the best deal you're going to get for him.

Ozformers posted some interesting news for both Australian fans and worldwide fans. They will be hosting a new Transformers reveal November 5th. The details are on their Facebook post which can be read below.

Also below is another post from them where they give details on the KMart exclusive Netflix Transformers toys, including prices, which have been sighted and which ones are expected to arrive. We posted images of the KMart catalogue they are found in which also includes a really good deal on the Cyberverse armour figures at only $9 AUS (which is $6 USD).

Australian Transformers toy reveal update.
As noted the other day, the reveal had to be pushed back a week because the toy samples were not going to be able to get here in time for today's planned reveal.
The new day and times are as follows...
.
REVEAL
- Thursday NOV 5th at 4pm for Brisbane timezone
- Thursday NOV 5th at 5pm for Sydney/Melbourne timezone
- Thursday NOV 5th at 1am for the New York timezone
- Thursday NOV 5th at 2pm for the Hong Kong timezone
(I was hoping we could do it a few hours earlier so that it wasnt in the middle of the night for people in America, but this will be the earliest we are allowed to do it before the scheduled listing of pre-orders. I guess people in America will be able to see what it is like for us in Australia, with the new reveals always being at about 1am here.)
.
PRE-ORDERS (at any online store listing this item) can be put up after these times...
- Friday NOV 6th at midnight for Brisbane timezone
- Friday NOV 6th at 1am for Sydney/Melbourne timezone
- Thursday NOV 5th at 9am for the New York timezone
- Thursday NOV 5th at 10pm for the Hong Kong timezone
.
Hopefully there will be no more delays.



Netflix Transformers toys featured in the new Kmart sale catalogue.
Starting OCT 29th until November 11th, is a pre-christmas catalogue that has the three size classes of Generations Netflix toys... not on sale, but just advertised as new and exclusive to Kmart.
https://www.kmart.com.au/catalogue...
Not that they need to be discounted, as they are already quite well priced compared to their US pricing.
Deluxe - $29 (wave 2 sighted - some wave 1 sighted in WA that could just be old stock)
Voyager - $49 (only wave 1 sighted - wave 2 was expected)
Leader - $89 (wave 1 sighted - only wave 1 expected)
Unfortunately, Kmart Australia have only managed to send these new Transformers toys out to QLD stores so far, so other states may not have them in time for their official sale period... but NOTE that they are not listed as "no rainchecks", so you can have them reserved for you when they do show up at your nearest store. (not sure how it will work with the smaller sizes that have an assortment, as you may just have to guess the number too reserve, and hope you get the ones you want).

Hmmm, I wonder if the reveal will be the mysterious WFC-E28...

Probably just the SS Bee we recently saw package photos of.

Also well done whoever made that ad. I love how Sideswipe is stepping out of his package.

We have some fun news for Australians. The voyagers Hot Rod and Scourge from Transformers Studio Series 86 have been spotted. Granted, it's in a Toy Kingdom store, which only has 3 locations in the country. But that is a Toyworld franchise, so they may be coming to Toyworlds soon. We also got word that the Netflix voyagers have appeared at Kmarts (where they are exclusive) in Perth. Griffin of Ozformers took the time to remind fellow fans how they got there since Australia was initially not slated to receive any wave 2 toys:

Wave 2 Netflix Voyager Transformers (Optimus & Soundwave) found at several Kmarts in Perth.
Fingers crossed that they go to Kmart stores in other states, and that all of the stock didn't end up getting sent to the one state (WA).
Image here is from this week's Kmart catalogue, which doesn't have sale prices, but just promotes current items at their regular price... showing us Optimus and Soundwave, which was a bit of a tease before they were found in WA Kmarts.
With the wave 2 Leader pack showing up on the EB Games website, this means we did manage to get all of the first two waves in Australia... even if it has been a bit of a challenge getting them all before many of them quickly disappeared from stores.
(remember, we weren't even going to get any of wave 2 here until the people at the Australian branch of Hasbro went begging for stock, just for us fans - they can't get their hands on everything we would want to see here, but this was a good one for them to succeed on securing)


Speaking of KMart exclusives, some G1 reissues were also found. Those being the second wave of Minibots and Soundwave.

Soundwave & Buzzsaw - $79
cassettes Ravage & Rumble - $39
cassettes Frenzy & Lazerbeak - $39

OKay, Feb 1st, thanks for the info straight from Hasbro.

But, you wrote " The voyagers Hot Rod and Scourge from Transformers Studio Series 86 have been spotted."

Do you think they were put out early by mistake and won't be available in most places until Feb 1st, or does this mean they might get an early release? Do they sometimes get released earlier than the stated date?

Thanks!

Yes, toys are often released at retail before the release date. And at other times, they come out later.

While the Studio Seires SS 86 voyagers were found in Australia a few days ago, it was in a small chain. But now, they have been found in Kmart. And not only that, but the SS 86 deluxe class toys, Jazz, Kup, & Blurr, have also been found there. Ozformers posted about this on their Facebook page providing info on the exact location and why they think they were put on shelves early:

When the Voyagers were found at a couple of Toyworlds in Victoria last week, it was assumed to be another case of Toyworld releasing toys too early, but today they were being found at Kmart stores in Victoria, along with the Deluxe wave as well... so it looks like this next wave of Studio Series toys, featuring characters from the 1986 Transformers Movie, are indeed being released early in Australia (before any other country), to cash in on Christmas.
Fingers crossed we see these at more stores around the country, and the Leader pack (Grimlock with Wheelie) as well.

You read that right, a toy that has yet to be officially revealed by Hasbro, T-Wrecks, has been found in stores. If only they had an event to reveal him before he was found but alas. As suspected, he is in Kingdom packaging. This is said to be a Red Card exclusive at Target in the US. It was found at Toyworld in Australia and posted on Reddit. By zooming in, we can see that the sample we saw earlier had the correct head, which is the same as Beast Wars Megatron.

Speaking of toys found in Australia, we also have commander class Rodimus Prime. Transformers Kingdom Rodimus Prime was spotted on the shelves at a Big W store in Miranda. The price was AU$149. That was posted on Twitter.

For anyone in Australia who hasn't heard ... Amazon.com.au have cancelled a number of pre-orders for TF X Jurassic Park

Some folks have said their order hasn't been cancelled so it may be a case of Amazon.com.au getting SOME stock but not getting ENOUGH stock (be it from Big Brother Amazon or Hasbro themselves) to cover all the pre-orders.

No one is avoiding anything, there is just not enough people. If you have time, it would help if you write the news articles you find lack on the site and I (or zerowolf) could front page it. You have the power to make things better.

A friend in Brisbane picked up this dude yesterday and is probably going back for Scraphook today. Legacy Hot Shot was also there! I'll ask which store, suburb etc.

I'll be checking my local stores this weekend just in case they've made it over to NZ!

Probably EB Games/Zing or even JB Hi-Fi.

That's pretty much where Transformers are heading these days, the likes of Big W, K-Mart and Target pick and choose what they want.
