I know it's been sighted before, but I saw Incinerator at a Kmart today (1st major retail sighting?) at the surprisingly regular price of $39.99.

Apparently Animated Swindle, Blurr and Blazing Lockdown have been found at more than one Toyworld in WA, so should start appearing in other chain stores soon (and other Toyworlds). Tiby's find at an Uncle Pete's is an independant, so can't be related to a national chain, and could even have been a direct import (if they were getting impatient about no new figures in the last 8 weeks).

edit - And now a Toyworld on the Gold Coast (QLD) has the new Animated Deluxes.

A David Jones in Sydney had Cyclonus, Hound and Cheetor.
Looks like they are making their way to any national chain stocking that series now. At least, to any store that needs to restock.

Thanks to 1orion2many's report, I rushed out this morning and found these at another WA Toyworld. I visited two and don't believe all Toyworlds have these though.

My pics:



Blurr's car mode is very very nice, I especially like the back wheels!
Swindle the armsdealer looks like he's stolen Megs' arm cannon and Prime's chest.
Both are very nice.

I've also seen that item here in kmart last week but I wasn't able to buy it - nor even post it. So I reckon that is the first posting here in the forum.

There's another version of it where it comes in a plastic packet with holes on the side so as you can file it in a 3-hole binder or so. I also thought I saw an animated bumblebee version of that as well.

I was almost tempted to buy it last week but, for whatever reason, the other side of me is doubting its quality.

Uncle Pete's tends to get things early down my way (eg movie figures and Animated originally) so when I heard K-Marts were getting them I thought Uncle Pete's could not be far off.

Also at Uncle Pete's... not sure of price - I must have assumed they were overpriced
