    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.
