So Visionaries did air in Australia. From some replies here, I thought that it almost never came to Australia and that would be a pity.

For us in Singapore and I guess much of Asia, Visionaries was the 'next hit from Hasbro' following the demise of Transformers. It was all the rage back then and I even remember a classmate claiming he bought a 'Visionaries Merklynn Crystal Ball' with hundreds of supplementary spells (I think he must have be bs-ing me).

yeah, Singapore did have these in quite copious amounts. If you wanted them today, I don't think it'd be that expensive to collect them all. Relative to Transformers, Visionaries are pretty modestly priced.

The difficulty, I think, is in finding a complete Dagger Assault. That is just so hard to come by because of its size and the number of parts. Also the transparent hologram sticker on each of its jail cells is often not there, not working or badly applied.

Kudos for also pulling this off (especially all US packaging too- my collection is a mix of Euro and US packaging). Definitely not the easiest thing to pull off either. Well done .

There's currently a Kickstarter for a printed Visionaries collectors guide book. 14 days to go.

(Now if only someone could do the same for Super Naturals, along with a modern toy line??? )

Yeah, me too. I hope this Kickstarter goes ahead.

I don't recall ever seeing Super Naturals when they were released. Maybe they just weren't available from the retailers where i was. I wonder which came first, and who the copycat was - Super Naturals or Visionaries.

Ha ha ha! Me too.

Kinda have a soft spot for Supernaturals and started picking a few up at the last markets I went to in Aus. Cheesy simple toys with Glow in the dark bits, which had i not been into TFs at the time, probably would have nabbed me.

Just checked out that Kickstarter page and hope the book comes with a holographic cover :3
