More of wave 2 of the WFC Siege toyline continues to be found at Australian retail, while we still wait for the national retailers to even stock the toyline. As such, we might not end up seeing wave 1 of most size classes at stores like Kmart, Target and BigW... whenever they eventually get those sizes in.

Found at several Toymate and Toyworld stores this week in different states (as well as one Target store today), are the second wave Deluxe toys - Ironhide, Prowl, Sixgun and Chromia.
To play it safe, if you are wanting to make sure you get any of the wave 1 toys, perhaps check out Amazon (Australia or America - the stock will come from America), or any other online store that has them that you trust.

Found in the last couple of weeks in Australia...
- Botbots series 2 8-packs and single packs (the 5-packs were first found in February)
- Rescue Bots rescan wave 23 (new Hotshot VTOL jet, new Wedge snowplow, and re-release minor redeco Bumblebee from wave 22, which we didn't get here, so this is new for us too)
- Series 2 Transformers TCG booster packs found at BigW.
- UK Rescue Bots magazine (issue 17) found at Coles for $11.
- Cyberverse Ultra Slipstream (was released with Optimus in wave 3, but isn't being found in many stores, so Optimus might be on its own in a revision wave)
- Cyberverse Ultimate w2 Bumblebee.
- JP Golden Lagoon 3-pack and Starscream, and JP MP Shadow Panther at Mr Toys Toyworld in Brisbane (could be exclusive).

[QUOTE=griffin;609409]Toyworld Macgregor

Golden Lagoon 3-pack - $129 (a great price, as it would have cost about AU$115 in Japan when it was released, BEFORE shipping)
Golden Lagoon Starscream - $80 (not a great price, as it was originally about AU$55 on release... but might be a lot more on the secondary market by now)
(although, buying both together offsets one bad price with one great one)
Shadow Panther - $129 (it might be $19 more than what TRU were pre-selling theirs for before they went bust, but it would still be cheaper than importing one, as it was originally about AU$115 in Japan)

They still had about six of the 3-pack and about 10 of Starscream, and more Shadow Panthers than I could count, so they will probably be there for a while.
NOTE - these are NOT behind the front counter where they usually keep the rarer collectables... they are in the first aisle with the Model Kits.



- wave 2 Ultimate Cyberverse Bumblebee - $60

BigW Carindale - Finally found the Cyberverse Ultra Slipstream (it was supposed to be released with Optimus, but I think there must have been a revision wave that doesn't have Slipstream, as Optimus would normally be the character that goes first).
