Default Siege & Botbots retail prices in Australia

Botbots and War For Cybertron seem to be really slow to show up at retailers here in Australia (it is harder to sell product to retailers if they don't have any supporting media like a cartoon or movie, because advertising is then covered by someone else), so doing the rounds this weekend at some of the major retailers with barcodes in hand, and compiling prices already posted up here in the sightings section, here is what to expect from the national retailers when they eventually show up in all parts of the country.
(these will be added to the main price comparison listing when enough is known)

So far it looks like Kmart might have the best prices, but BigW will usually adjust their prices to match.
N = not in system yet (as of last update to this post)
U = unknown (hasn't been checked/reported yet)

Hasbro mentioned that we should start seeing Siege toys at major retailers (like BigW, Target, Kmart) from early March, and sure enough, BigW have been found to have the two smaller sizes this week... so hopefully more start showing up, and in other stores too, so we can have some sales to bring down the prices a little.
(unfortunately, BigW didn't have any other size classes in their system when the post above was done up, so it might still be some time until Deluxe and larger show up there)

Added two of the Botbots prices to the BigW section, sent in by an anonymous source - single packs at $5 and 5-packs at $15... which aren't any less than other places.
Also noted that Siege Deluxe are out at Target (tipped off by one of the members here), so they might also have the other sizes on the way as well.

Default Siege Wave 2 Found in Australia!

Finally got Prowl for $29 and Starscream for $49 at the local KMart in Sydney NSW!

There were two of each left and I'd been looking for so long that I decided to get them both!

The hunt continues...

Updated first post from more sightings and checking of in-store scanners.

It looks like all of the stores getting these in, now have them, except BigW, which have the Deluxe and Voyager Siege toys in their systems, but aren't yet out in stores yet.
Leader Class Siege is going to be difficult to obtain here though, as Kmart and BigW still don't have it in their systems, while Target is still unknown (the in-store scanner wouldn't read the image on my phone, so I have to go back with an empty toy box).

Items still not listed, and probably not expected there by now...

BigW
Botbots 8-pack
WFCS Leader

Kmart
Botbots 5-pack
WFCS Leader

Target
Botbots 1-pack
Botbots 8-pack
WFCS BattleM
WFCS Leader (unknown)

I took in one of my Leader boxes to a Target store, and they are not in their system... so are not likely to get them in. This means Toyworld and Toymate could be the only stores to have Siege Leaders... so keep an eye on places like Amazon, as it could be easier and/or cheaper.

Not completely surprising. Especially at the price they have, leaders from the last few lines seem to have been pretty bad shelfwarmers.
