    With all the excitement around the world first release of Titans Return toys in Australia, and with Fortress Maximus, the new tallest Transformers toy (according to head height), there have been a number of other first sightings in the last couple of weeks that haven't been highlighted...

    - Japanese import Masterpiece Road Rage at ToysRUs for $130.
    - GEN Combiner Victorion at ToysRUs for $200.
    - GEN Combiners G2 Menasor and G2 Superion are also at ToysRUs stores, after only being available so far on the Target website.
    - RID Power Surge Bumblebee & Sideswipe at Toyworlds for $60 (a world first retail sighting)
    - RID Tiny Titans wave 6 at Coles.
    - Rescue Bots Stations (small playsets) for $25 at ToysRUs (who are now stocking most of the Rescue Bots toys, when it was just Kmart before).
    - And some 2014/2015 Kreo items have been found at a discount outlet store chain in Western Australia, including the RID Custom Kreons & a TF4 movie buildset.

    Two new items found last week in the ACT - Generations Leader Skywarp (the last of the Combiner Wars Leaders), and the Rescue Bots Firehouse playset.

    Also being found at BigW stores now, for their upcoming mid-year toysale, is Fortress Maximus for $249. Just be aware that it takes time for stock to arrive at all stores, so give it a week for it to show up at your nearest store before bugging them about it.

    The Second wave of RID Legions have hit Woolworths (first sighting was actually May 30th), which has the redeco Blizzard Optimus and Ratchet (redeco Strongarm with new head).

    The third wave of 2016 RID Legions have been found at ToysRUs in Canberra, which has Groundbuster and Blizzard Drift.... and maybe Bisk, who is also supposed to be in this wave.

    The regular release of Titans Return toys in Australia has begun, with the Voyagers found at a Toyworld in Victoria.
    Plus, the RID Powersurge Optimus for $100.

    The next of the Titans Return toys have been found in Australia - Soundwave from Wave 2... before wave 1 Leader toys were found here, so hopefully we didn't miss them.
    Also found in the last week was a re-release of the Rescue Bots Optimus with Trailer toy at Kmart, after many stores were shelfwarming the first version for over 2 years (and some still have it).

    And even more amusing is the price - the reissue of the trailer version is $39, while the non-trailer version (that came out a couple months ago with High Tide) is also $39.

    A correction to the previous post, as the wave 1 Leaders (Optimus & Blaster) were actually reported first, by 3 hours, before Soundwave was reported here.

    Also here now are the RID Battlepack wave 1 toys - Optimus with Bludgeon, Sideswipe with Anvil - found at a couple of ToysRUs stores this weekend for $30 each.

    ToysRUs look to be the first Major Retailer here to get in the (almost) full range of the Titans Return toys, with all but Voyagers found in some stores in the ACT and NSW today, so expect them to show up in other stores around the country within the week as well.

    PLUS, Combiner Wars Gen2 Bruticus and Computron at ToysRUs as well, for the usual $200.

    Found in the last few days are the second wave of Titans Return Voyagers (Astrotrain & Alpha Trion), RID Weapon Minicons, and ToysRUs exclusive RID 2-pack of Bumblebee & Steeljaw with a Stasis Pod.

    Found in the last few days are the latest wave of RID 3-steps (redeco Bumblebee and redeco Drift), plus Rescue Bots Racing Trailer (with Optimus & Blurr) and the Pull-back racers (from a sighting posted on our Facebook page).
    The 3-steps and Racing Trailer are at ToysRUs, while the Pull-back racers are at BigW.

    .


    Plus, the latest wave of 3-steps, with (orange) Drift and Energon Boost Bumblebee, which might be a world first retail sighting.


    They had the two Rescue Bots (pull back) racers for $29 each.
