Got word from a friend who saw the flyer. Haven't verified myself.

$20 off ROTF Leaders. Unsure of original price. If still $89, that means $69! Woot!

According to a NSW based member of Seibertron (http://www.seibertron.com/energonpub/viewtopic.php?f=57&t=154&p=926678#p926678), the sale might be restricted to a handful of stores, and the sale price is $79, which makes the normal price $99, so Kmart have bumped up prices for the movie.

The NSW stores he listed included Sylvania, Waratah,Nowra and Penrith, Penrith is one of the new 24/7 stores, so I wonder if that has anything to do with it?

Sylvania is the other 24 hour K-Mart in Sydney, while Nowra is street-accessible. Midnight sale, anyway?

Not sure about Waratah - I've never seen that store (don't head to Newcastle much, the Knights aren't worth watching :p )

Sylvania is the other 24 hour K-Mart in Sydney, while Nowra is street-accessible. Midnight sale, anyway?

Blacktown, Mt Druitt and a handful of other stores are also street accessible (Nowra is in a small shopping centre), so if it is a midnight sale, why exclude those stores (unless they are aiming to only do regional-ish type sales?)

Guess we can find out when they start appearing in letterboxes, the brochures normally arrive on Wednesday at my place.

Nowra is 24hr now... Don't know why. Guess you gotta give the locals some place to hang out when they can't sleep or are cold:p

Kmart pricing usually kicks in at 10pm the night before. Why not just go to Burwood? STL and I are doing Campbellfield.

Dylbot
26th May 2009, 05:53 PM
So no sale on deluxes or voyagers?

Wow.. $100 for Leaders??? That's pretty steep!

perhaps ill go for voyager megatron.IMO I think the Voyager looks better than the Leader in some ways :)

Just got off the phone with kmart knox and burwood east, they both said no rotf stuff until may 30, but the sale starts thursday. Does that mean they won't be on the shelf till may 30:mad:?

I was thinking that as well when this was first posted up. Kmart mustn't be sticking to the release date then.

Based on comments from Target, Big W and Kmart, it would appear that everyone is starting on Thurday, which makes sense for Australia, as that's the official shopping day. I suspect Hasbro has permitted this.

Kmart Burwood Westfields NSW have them for sale now but at the normal RRP (i.e. not at the sale price).

jaydisc
27th May 2009, 12:55 PM
Hasbro reps are making their way around to stores and setting up displays today!! They have so much to do that's why they're starting early.

Kmart knox had all rotf stuff, but no deluxes. Target told me no rotf stuff till 30th. I'm really confused:confused:

Anyone heading to Sylvania at midnight? Zed? kup? Kyle?

A bit to late for me I think, I checked at 7:00 and there's still no sign of an ROTF TF. Though there is a small space cleared in the toy section, but I was excpecting a whole isle like for the previous movie.

There was no sign of anyone planning to set up and TF's yet either, so there is a danger that going at 12 might prove fruitless.

Kmart knox has set up, but I rang Burwood east (24 hour) and they said they aren't putting thier rotf stuff out till thursday arvo. the guy might not be aware of the sale though. Any word on target's official release date for rotf?

27th May 2009, 08:37 PM

Kmart Campbellfield had the Leaders (OP and Megs) as at 9:45pm and was already scanning at $79. Picked myself up Leader OP. :D

There was no other RotF stuff at all though.

erm... someone must have hit the shelves before you Stompy :D
just kidding...did you look elsewhere, it might not be in the same TF aisle

Yeah had a good look around the store in case it was elsewhere. Checked in the feature aisles and sale aisle to no avail. Was only really there for Leader OP for the cheaper price. Was kinda glad no other figures were there as my impulsive side would have made me buy them at full price.

By the way, your photobucket page background pic is awesome. Is it a default photobucket background theme or did you take it yourself?

Not really part of the sale per-se but worth mentioning.

My Local Kmart has the stock that the new movies toys displaced in the sale trolley, half of which was Animated Ultra Magnus, now $29, and the jet twins which were $26 or so.

There were also a few Universe Combiner boxes for $40.

So it might be worth checking your local Kmart's discount/old stock section for homless TF's.
