    Hhrrmmm... might wait until after I get Siege Jetfire to see how I feel... having a 3rd CHUG Jetfire might negate my desire to replace my Classics one. <rubs chin>

    P.S.: Speaking of Jetfire, apparently Harmony Gold's Macross licence expires in 2021. Anyone reckon this would allow Hasbro to acquire it and finally do things like...
    * Make a new toy-accurate Jetfire toy
    * Obtain a new Macross VF-1S mould and repackage/repaint it as Jetfire
    * Reissue G1 Jetfire if the mould still exists
    <rubs chin again>
    I'd love a new G1 toy style Jetfire (to be completely clear, something better than the T30 version). I actively dislike the fat bloated whale looking Skyfire inspired versions.
    I'm really just here for the free food and open bar.

    Now that we don’t have TRU where at retail will we see Titans Big W has gotten some but in small numbers, apparently toyworld got Predaking but I never saw him. And let’s not even bother with Myers

    So where will us Aussies get our Titans
    I was going to preorder Omega but everywhere is sold out already which is annoying. In 6 months we will be looking at paying $300+ for him if he’s anything like Metroplex

    Hasbro Australia sells stock to Amazon Australia so Predaking was listed there (but it was still cheaper to buy it from the US Amazon)... so Omega Supreme should show up there. If not, Amazon America will have it.

    I just ordered Siege Omega Supreme (and Jetfire) off Mighty Ape.
    Never ordered from them before so I hope that they prove to be reliable.

    I just ordered and received through them with something else. Not Transformers specialists, but above and beyond customer service.

    Agreed, Mighty Ape refunded me with minimal hassle for a set of defective Platinum Coneheads.

    Good to hear, fellas. I've just become really wary of unfamiliar online stores (especially those in Australia*) after having been burnt thrice.

    *Yeah, I know that Mighty Ape are Kiwis. Australasia.

    They are tricky(in a good way). Eg. I had to explain the difference between Wave 1 and 2 of Siege. They seem to be very reliant on what their suppliers tell them.
    And they are relatively expensive so they won't be my first port of call.

    But that customer experience. Really really good. I have to call them out and you have to consider them on that alone.

    The US Target website doesn't post to shipping forwarders like Shopmate.
    Target.com doesn?t ship to international freight forwarders or addresses outside the United States.
    I ordered the Target exclusive SS-31 Battle Damaged Megatron the other day, and found out the next day that the order was cancelled... after chasing up a reason, I was directed to fine print buried very deep in the shipping conditions (quoted above). Shopping at a number of US retailers in the past (including Walmart and TRU) I've never come across that before, and don't know why Target have that sort of restriction, as it would impact on their potential sales (like their exclusive items).
    I really hate having to ask US friends to receive and ship toys to me, as I can't really return the favour.

    Was so pissed on Saturday! We booked tickets months in advance for a kids Transformers Interactive Stageshow at Panthers Penrith. On the day drove 2 1/2 hours to get there, and as we were checking into our hotel 90 minutes before showtime the announcement came over social media that the show had been cancelled!.

    Why? Because despite shocking weather and gale-force winds having been predicted and talked about every night on weather reports for a full week beforehand, these idiots still decided to fly the actors in from Melbourne that morning for an 11am show. Ludicrous! And no there wasn't other shows that they had to do in Melb which prevented them coming earlier as all the equipment had been at Penrith for days. It was simply that the venue didn't want to have to shell out for accommodation for the 'talent' (D-grade actors in transformer costumes) on the Friday night.

    So many kids and parents disappointed - my son was heartbroken! All that build up and travelling and so on just to have his show snatched away at the 11th hour. And the venue never admitted fault which was extra insulting. I know other Ozformer members found themselves in the same boat as us and there was a lot of outrage on social media (before Panthers started deleting the posts from angry parents).
