Venom, Spidey and Hulk @ Mornington Toyworld for $34.99 each.

I thought they looked pretty cool in real life.

I was expecting that price for them. I am thinking of waiting till the price drops a bit to get the Hulk. the others so far don't interest me much. Venom is the closest, just he seems a bit to out of proportion in terms of width

All at sale price for me too. I imagine they'll be similarly priced to the SWTFs and so sale price will be at $24 to $25... :(

Spotted all 4 @ Uncle Pete's Castle Hill for $29.99

I've heard Ironman's not too bad of a figure but I wasn't tempted at all. :)

I'm not interested in these at all, but I can't wait to see what customisers can come up with.

A simple head change-over and these guys can become 'real' Transformers.

That's exactly what I'm hanging out for too.

i dont get it...

You mean the whole reason for these Marvel-Hybrid TFs?

It's gotta be for cross-promotion purposes - Why else would they make them?

On one of the bios, they mention Captain America - I wonder what type of Alt-mode he'll become... :rolleyes:

Pulse..no, i don't get why and how they can become "real" transformers when their mould alone is too bulky.

i'm tempted by the packaging but knowing that the figures will suck, this can definitely sit out while i drool over Universe Classic toys as well as Animated

I don't think HasTak meant for people like us to put that much thought into it. They probably expected us to buy 'em & come back for more...

If you're weighing up their coolness factor, Hopefully this Ironman review (http://shortpacked.livejournal.com/382838.html) will give you some more insight :)

Wow! They are big. I thought the SWTF generally speaking were large but that Hulk's huge (pun not intended)

I went a hunting today, Subiaco Toyworld had none in stock (and had no idea what i was talking about), but they rang Claremont Toyworld and apparantly they have them there. Alas, my lunchbreak is too short :(

Saw them at Minotaur today, the Spider-man one, asking price was $40, but that's Minotaur for you.

I did. They were approximately $34.95, and they had Hulk, Venom, and Iron Man.

AND I HAVE NO MONEY. *sob*

Got my hands on Hulk and I'm impressed. The tank mode is a little forced especially with it's short and stout canon but it's robot mode is amazing. Basically the canon are his legs the main body of the tank his waist and torso and the treads his massive arms. Proportions are very true to Hulk.

The build quality is top notch and uses really great plastic and ratcheted legs with really tight joints. Reminds me of Cybertron Voyager figures. I hope Venom's build is just like Hulk's.

Yeah, there's a lot of that going around judging by all these recent TF, Non TF acquisitions of late :p

Sighted Marvel crossovers in Toyworld- eastern suburbs, Melbourne. No venom though-doh!
Spidey was my next bet and he's cool. They are big for deluxes. Hulk is larger in vehicle mode than many voyagers ive seen lately.

Saw Venom and Hulk at Toyworld for $30 each in Melbourne's South

Spotted Hulk, Spider-Man and Iron-Man for $40(!) at another Toyworld.

Spotted Venom & Iron Man at my local Big W.

They only had the one of each at $29.66 each. Bought them both though, so none left in that particular Big W unless they have a stash at the back.

Found 2 Hulks in the City Big W
Price was about $30 ($29.something)

I noticed that these figures aren't always pegged at the Transformers section or even the Marvel section. I found some pegged between shelves in the Lego aisle.

Is it just me or does Melbourne seem to get TF stuff earlier then Sydney? :o

Or is it just that Sydney people are selfish and don't want other people to get to the stuff until they've bought it? :p j/k

where are the other Crossovers? they don't seem to have it on display.
moreover, they placed the crossover where the Hulk toys are...

It sure is strange how SWTFs were grouped in with TFs but these Crossovers aren't placed anywhere near TFs... :confused:

Really? I've found most stores in Vic don't have SWTF near Transformers, unless as is the case with some K-mart stores, the SW toys are next to them.

Saw wave 1 at Chadstone's TRU today. About 2 or 3 of each

it was a bit strange seeing BigW, Toy Kingdom and TRU all having new stock of Marvel crossovers, but not target or kmart :rolleyes:

Saw at Airport West/Highpoint Target all except Venom.

Most stores around where I live seemed to have gotten a fresh injection of Hulks. Venoms and an Iron Man spotted as well.

Saw the first wave at Kmart Sunnybank the other day, for $30. Still not seeing wave 2 yet, and they've been out in America a while now. Maybe AUS stores just aren't too interested in stocking these, so taking a while for the next batch to be released by Hasbro AUS, as it has taken Kmart a while just to get the first wave in.
