    A couple of new sightings from today, and some less popular items from last week.
    Today, found at Toyworld in the ACT was the first wave of Studio Series Leaders (Blackout and Grimlock), for $90.
    And at a QLD Woolies, the first wave of the small sized Authentics (Optimus, Bumblebee, Megatron, Starscream), for $10 each.

    And from the previous week or two, the second wave of RID 3-steps (new mould Grimlock and redeco Thunderhoof), which we skipped last year when wave 3 and 4 were being released while the RID toyline was still going.
    Plus the fourth "wave" of 2017 Rescue Bots Rescan bots, which saw the release of the launcher trailer Optimus as just the cab on its own. (this might have been seen last month in NSW, but was not verified)

    Meanwhile, the rarely seen Titans Return Seaspray and Cosmos wave, are appearing at a few more Toyworlds recently, so might continue to show up around the country before that line disappears completely here.

    The receipt scans in as #Transformers Generations Asst @ $10.00

    I would think if it hits Kmart or Big W you might see them a little less, as Woolworths toys don't compete on price. But how awesome to find these at retail. I hope is means we will see the larger size class too eventually, but might just be a one off

    BigW - POTP Voyager and Deluxe now in stock... and a first sighting of the RID 3-steps from last year that had the new mould Grimlock and redeco Thunderhoof.

    The rest of the Studio Series toys have now been found, at several Toyworlds in Victoria today.
    Deluxes were for $35.
    Voyagers for $49-50.
    Leaders for $90.
    (prices can vary among Toyworld stores)

    Also note that the photo below is our first photo proof of the giant Rescue Bots Optimus Flip-Racer launcher trailer, which had an unverified sighting on another fansite back in December.

    Some new toys found in the last week in Australia.

    - POTP w2 Deluxe - a single sighting so far of Snarl at a BigW in Brisbane, so hopefully this means wave 2 is actually out here.
    - POTP w2 Voyager (Elita-1 and Hungrrr) - found at a Kmart in Sydney.
    - TF5 Movie w3 Deluxe (2nd Bumblebee, Crosshairs, Strafe) - found at a Toymate in Sydney, which should be getting their stock from Hasbro Australia like Toyworld.
    - Rescue Bots "Nightwatch" Optimus (with 2 Minicons) - found at a Toyworld in Melbourne.
    - Rescue Bots Flip Racer Blurr racetrack set - found at a ToysRUs in Brisbane.
    - Rescue Bots Flip Racer w2 3-pack (Heatwave, Boulder, Quickshadow) - found at a ToysRUs in Brisbane.
    - Rescue Bots Megabot Boulder - found at a Kmart in Brisbane.

    And it looks like Transformers have returned to David Jones, after a 7-8 year hiatus. Don't expect much of a range, or competitive prices... but they can be used as a last resort if they are sitting on something that has disappeared everywhere else.

    The new item to note is the latest Rescue Bots Megabot, Boulder, who has a really poorly designed vehicle mode, complete with a shovel that can't be used because it is upside down.

    Sighted in the last 24 hours, a heap of BigW stores have been stocking all four of the Leader Class POTP toys for this week's toy sale (to be $68 during the sale), which includes the wave 2 Rodimus Unicronus and wave 3 Optimal Optimus.

    Plus, Toyworlds in Brisbane have been seeing the wave 3 Legends toys Outback and Cindersaur.

    Several HUGE sightings from today, and one from a week ago.

    - POTP wave 3 Voyager Inferno found at a BigW in NSW.
    - Studio Series wave 2 Voyager Brawl & Megatron found at a Toyworld in Victoria.
    - POTP wave 2 Deluxe finally having a confirmed appearance at a BigW in Canberra.

    And the big news, Cyberverse hitting Australia before the rest of the world, but since it was at a Victorian Toyworld, it might have been an accidental early release, as we've had some Movie toys in recent years being released early by accident.
    Then again, these could be their official release, and we just got lucky with the toys... but not the prices, as the Toyworld prices were apparently not right, with them being way over their normal size-class price point.

    Three sizes found - Scout, Warrior and 1-Step.

    A surprise find at a ToysRUs in NSW today, with the first sighting of Masterpiece Barricade and Studio Series Thundercracker.
    Considering that ToysRUs are now winding up operations in Australia, these toys must have been received, or bought, before the official notice was made of the business being closed up.

    Now to see if they show up at all stores, or just the ones closest to their Sydney warehouse (because it would be the cheapest option while they are minimising costs now).

    Found this week, the 3rd wave TF5 Leader Dragonstorm at Toyworlds in Victoria (and maybe other Toyworlds).
    This was a toy that was not expected here, according to Hasbro Australia earlier this year, so it might have been sent here recently from China as excess stock they couldn't send anywhere else.

    We also have the large sized "Authentic" figures showing up at Coles, for $20 each. The first wave has Bumblebee, Grimlock and Optimus.

    INCLUDING DRAGONSTORM!!!

    The big find was the first release of some of the Energon Igniter toys for the Bumblebee Movie... which I think shouldn't be released until October.
    They scanned up, so were meant to be there, but there was only two sets, so probably just a single case snuck though to the store.

    Three new items found this weekend at three different Target stores.
    - Studio Series wave 3 Deluxe Shadow Raider (should also have the VW Bumblebee and DOTM Ratchet).
    - Bumblebee Movie Titan Changers Shatter, Bumblebee, Optimus Prime.
    - Rescue Bots Flip Racer pullback Heatwave and Quickshadow for $24 each.

    If that's true, it might mean that we missed wave 2 (Jazz, Lockdown), and it should mean that the VW Bumblebee and DOTM Ratchet are out with it.




    Meanwhile, on facebook, Nathan Luke has found the three Titan Changers for the Bumblebee Movie (Shatter, Bumblebee, Optimus Prime), at a different Target in Sydney (Roselands).

    These were on display at SDCC a couple months ago, but there wasn't any signage or mention of them. Even though they are packaged as Flip

    Racers, they are a little bigger, which means that they probably won't be compatible with all of the previous playsets and launchers.
