    After all of the excitement of Unicron has now died down from it's final days last weekend (and board issues), we can catch up on some new items from the last couple of weeks... including the two big toys for Siege - Jetfire and Omega Supreme.

    Siege Jetfire at Amazon for $150 (which can sometimes be found listed for as low as $125).
    Siege Omega Supreme at Amazon for $300 (which can sometimes be found listed for as low as $245).
    (note - make sure you select Amazon Australia as the source if not on the main page... they may not be currently in-stock, but they have access to stock from Hasbro Australia)

    BotBots series 3 (orange bubbles) 5-packs - found first at BigW ($15) and Toyworld ($17).
    Bumblebee Movie Soundwave with Doombox pack (US Target exclusive for US$50) - found at Toymate for $45.

    October was pretty quiet for new Transformers here, so most of these were found in the last couple of weeks in November...
    - Cyberverse Cheetor (store exclusive in America, found on the Toyworld website here).
    - Cyberverse Scout wave 4 (Scraplet & Axe Optimus) reported first on our facebook page.
    - MPM-9 Movie Jazz (a pre-order item at EB Games came out on October 28th, so there might be some stores with one from cancelled orders, but not enough units to be listed on their site).
    - WFC Siege Micromaster w3 (Decepticon Sports Car patrol) found at Toymate.
    - Cyberverse Spark Armor Battle class w2 (Ratchet, Shockave) found at a Target in Brisbane.
    - Rescue Bots Rescan Whirl (and Grimlock) found at Toymate.
    - Botbots Single packs series 3 (orange) and 4 (blue) found at BigW stores in the same week.
    - WFC Siege Leader Astrotrain, found at a couple of Toymates (ACT & Robina).

    The main Toyworld site has the Cyberverse Cheetor listed, for $50... so it could end up appearing in Toyworld stores.
    This appeared briefly on the Mighty Ape site (which would have been Australian stock sent to New Zealand), but if anyone has actually ordered this and got the Cheetor toy (in other words, it isn't a mistaken listing), then that means we got another of the various 2019 exclusives here in Australia... not that it was one many serious collectors would have been after, but it is so far the only official toy of a major season 2 cartoon character.

    Target - had the wave 2 Cyberverse Spark Armor Battle Class (Ratchet & Shockwave).



    Today at Logan Hyperdome, for the opening weekend of the new Toymate store there (where Myer used to be).
    The most notable items I saw at the store were heaps of Siege Thundercracker, Megatron and Reflector's wave of Deluxes, plus wave 3 Micromasters (Blackjack & Hyperdrive, which the master cartons must have come with wave 1 Autobot Race Car Patrol and Battle Patrol, which didn't officially get released here as we missed wave 1), plus the Bumblebee Movie Soundwave pack (the Titans Return Soundwave) for $45, the Botbots series 3 5-packs and Arcade pack, and a lonely new release Rescue Bot toy (Racer car Whirl).

    There was a full set there. I didn’t buy them all, just a select few, and I haven’t opened them yet so no idea whether or not I’ve scored any of the rare golden ones.

    I didn't realise I hadn't been updating this topic in almost four months. I think I've just been updating other topics (like news postings) and pages (like our facebook page), and leaving this one until last.... and then just forgetting about it if I ran out of time.

    A quick bit of catchup then....

    NOV 25th - WFC-S Deluxe w5 (Crosshairs, Spinister) - first sighted at Myer.
    NOV - WFC-S Deluxe w4 (Impactor, Mirage, Barricade) - only ended up at Amazon Australia.
    NOV? - GEN Covert pack (black Sideswipe & Slamdance) - found to be sold by Amazon Australia in NOV for $78.
    NOV? - GEN Greenlight - found to be sold by Amazon Australia in NOV for $50.
    -

    MAR 6th - Rescue Bots 4-pack (Hoist, Wedge, Whirl, Hotshot) - first sighted at a Kmart in QLD for $49. (should be a Kmart exclusive)
    MAR 6th - Rescue Bots mini-racers (Optimus, Bumblebee, Heatwave, Hotshot, Hoist, Whirl) - first sighted at a Kmart in QLD for $7.
    MAR 7th - Studio Series VOY w8 (Mixmaster, Megatron) - first sighted at a Toyworld in VIC.
    MAR 13th - Botbots s4 6-packs (Clawgrab, Gumball) - first sighted at a Toyworld in QLD for $40.
    MAR 13th - Botbots s3 8-packs - first sighted at a Kmart in QLD for $25.


    For those noticing a lot of first sightings for Toyworld in VIC and Toyworld in QLD, it is likely to be because Toyworld's warehouse is in Melbourne so if Toyworld are first to get new stock, their stores in VIC would get stock first..... while the QLD stores are mostly Mr Toys Toyworlds which have their own distribution warehouse, so if they get new stock first, their QLD stores are first to get it.

    From Mid March to June we had a lockdown that limited the turnover of stock, and saw only 5 new items showing up at major retailers in that 2 and half month period.
    First sightings postings here and on our facebook page were suspended during that time so that it didn't encourage people to ignore any local restrictions that may have been in place in their state, or be a tease to those who adhered to the restrictions and stayed at home.

    After that last posting on March 16th, the next new item to be found here was April 24th...

    APR 24th - Rescue Bots Trailer Bases (Wedge, Hoist) - sighted at Kmart for $39.



    MAY 1st - Cyberverse Ultra w7 (Rack-N-Ruin) - first sighted in Victoria (photo posted on facebook by Brendan Muscat)



    MAY 1st - Cyberverse Scout w7 (Wheeljack, Bumblebee) - first sighted in BigW, and now in Kmart.



    MAY 3rd - Rescue Bots plain-box Boulder (the larger 2nd year Energize version being sold on Amazon America a couple years ago) - sighted at Toymate for $21
    (photo by member Sinnertwin, next to a carded current Boulder toy to show the difference)



    MAY 8th - Cyberverse 1-step w8 (Repugnus, Stealth Force Bumblebee) - first sighted at Toyworld. (photo posted on facebook by Brendan Muscat)



    JUNE 3rd - Studio Series Deluxe w9 (Roadbuster, Jeep Bumblebee, Jet Shatter) - first sighted in BigW, and now in Target.

    Earthrise Leader wave 2 Doubledealer found at Toymate stores, about a week after showing up at Uncle Petes.
    Also, the 5th wave of Siege Micromasters have suddenly shown up at Toymate and Toyworld stores in the southern states.

    It's from a Toymate store, and it was mentioned on TFW that Doubledealer was also found in the ACT.

    Series 5 Botbots 8-packs are showing up at various BigW stores, for $24 each.
    (looks like we might have missed the 8-packs, and probably 5-packs, of series 4 - the blue capsules)

    A couple of recent finds at Australian retail.

    Cyberverse Ultimate class Iaconus, found at a Toyworld in Perth.
