Today at Garden City... nothing much to report unfortunately.

Target - finally got in some POTP toys (they weren't there last week), but just Deluxe and Voyager at this time.

.


Kmart - had the newest Rescue Bots "rescan" Optimus, which is the one that was packed with the launcher trailer and Blurr.




ToysRUs - probably one of the largest ranges of Transformers for a long time, but 2/3rds are Movie toys, with the rest being made up of wave 1 POTP (leaders are all gone), and a few RID toys. (plus the newest Rescue Bots "rescan" Optimus in the Playskool section)



JB Hifi - had the newest RID DVD, thanks to a tipoff by Paulbot this morning (I wouldn't have gone inside to check otherwise).

I was amazed to find the new Transformers Authentics line at Woolworths Runaway Bay (isle 10 or 11, on the left hand side, whole new shelves of Hasbro toys including Marvel Infinity Wars Wave 2!). They had two full sets (Optimus, Megatron, Bumblebee, and Starscream). I didn't care what they were in price (no shelf tag) but was delighted when they scanned in at only $10 each.

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

Excuse the photography, but here is the
receipt for confirmation. I don't know how to inline the photo, but mods feel free to inline or mirror the image.

I have only opened Starscream and Megatron, but they are both good robot modes and feel like OS Legends. QC is an issue on Starscream with joints popping off, yours may vary. Megatron looks more like a brick in tank mode, but great for robot mode. The cannon is removable

A little cropping of your photo... as I wasn't too sure what body parts or clothing was showing.



I was actually recommending these to Hasbro a few months back for Australia, to replace the RID Legions and Tiny Changers in Grocery stores (Coles, Woolies) because they were no longer being released... but they said they didn't read that part of my email, so I guess in the end it was just a prediction.

Don't worry, nothing risqué just my leg as no table handy. Thanks for cropping

Out of curiosity, what op shops in the Brisbane area have you guys found to be the most reliable for finding Transformers?

I've done some Work for the Dole gigs at op shops (those days are long behind me, thankfully), and I found that different stores had very different types of "typical" donations- stuffed animals were common at some, while others would get Hot Wheels more often. I never found Transformers with any sort of regularity, though.
