    Arrow Australian Transformers Retail Store Price Comparison Listing 2019/2020

    This a price comparison listing of non-exclusive Transformers toys in Australia, for collectors to use, and archived for future reference.
    Previous listings that are archived - 2011 - 2013 - 2014 - 2015 - 2016/2017 - 2018 -

    (Check the bottom of this post for when this list was last updated.)

    This only covers the nation-wide store-chains that carry toys, through Hasbro Australia - BigW, Target, Kmart, ToysRUs, Toyworld, Toymate (mostly NSW), Myer... plus Coles, Woolworths, David Jones and EB/Zing for a smaller range of figures.
    Independent stores, online stores, import stores, clearance outlets (Reject Shop, TKMaxx), and comic shops are NOT included.
    Amazon Australia is also becoming a decent source of Australian (non-import) product, but their prices fluctuate too frequently to monitor here. They will be noted if an exclusive source of an item.
    Clearance Prices and one-off exclusives are also not included.

    PLEASE POST any missing or changed prices (here or in the sightings section), and it will eventually be added to this first post.
    Prices are rounded to the nearest dollar if it is within 10 cents of that dollar.

    I just wanted to note that sometime earlier this year, Kmart dropped their regular prices for Energon Igniters Power and Nitro sizes, making them the cheapest. That's something BigW used to do, but for some reason, sometime this year BigW raised their prices for Cyberverse Scout and Warrior to MATCH the higher Kmart prices. It meant their Warriors went from being the cheapest to most expensive in Australia.

    Added Myer prices for Siege toys, as they are being found at Myer stores now.

    Updated some of the Kmart and BigW prices, which had changed to match another store, or gone back up after a period of time matching another store.

    Added in some prices for the new Cyberverse Spark Armor toys as they have now shown up at four retailers - Myer, Toyworld, Kmart and Target (and probably Toymate as well).

    Adding a few prices from recent sightings... I noticed that BigW have changed their price of their Cyberverse Scouts, again.
    They were originally $13, then went up to $15 a few months ago, and are now down to $12 to match Kmart and Target.
