Default WFC Siege toys now out in Australia

The next chapter of Generations - War For Cybertron Siege - were found yesterday at several Toyworlds in Victoria and South Australia.
We had a couple of sightings posted here in the Victorian sightings topic (at about 11.30am yesterday, Victorian time), and then about 90 minutes later on TFW from a South Australian Toyworld, with photo proof (mirrored below).

Three sizes have been found so far, with the following prices (Toyworld don't have uniform prices)...
Battle Masters - $10-12
Deluxe - $35-40
Voyagers - $50-55

If you find the Siege toys at other Retailers here, or you see the Micromasters or Leaders, post it here, or in the sightings section.

Was actually kind of hoping these things wouldn’t show up just yet, since I will be travelling overseas at the end of this month and need to save as much money as I can before I go.

That said. I will be going to America. And it may end up being cheaper for me to buy some siege figures while I am over there, than to buy them at Toyworld’s absurd prices.

Gonna be hard to resist buying them for the rest of the month though.

FYI... the Australian RRPs on the Siege toys have been added to the Hasbro product page.
Battlemaster - $10
Micromaster - $20
Deluxe - $35
Voyager - $50
Leader - $90

The Studio Series toys (Deluxe, Voyager, Leader) have the same RRPs, so we could see similar prices at the other Major Retailers for Siege toys, as to what they price their Studio Series toys at.

I got a friend to scan the Seige Voyager Optimus I have Barcode at target and Kmart.

Here is Kmarts


Target:



And a POTP Voyager scanned at Kmart, looks to be on sale.


So they're on the system at both stores.

Has anyone seen these in Toymate stores, or are they just still a Mexican thing?

Nice work... I've sometimes done the same when I've imported the first wave of a new toyline before we got it here. But I haven't got any of the Siege toys yet, so haven't done the rounds of the retailers to test out the barcodes on their scanners.

Harsh. I've been keeping an eye on the nsw sighting thread and nothing yet.
