Arrow First Sightings of toys and retailers

This is a new free-for-all topic, for people to be able to post comments about the newest sightings that are in the closed ARCHIVE topic, as well as allowing people to post up their "first" sightings of new toys - first to Australia, first to a particular state, or first to a specific major retailer (like a first sighting at Kmart or BigW).
You will still need to use the state-based sightings topics for toys that are not new, or if you don't want to make multiple posts in there and in this topic (you are NOT required to use this topic if you find something first - the state-based topics will still be monitored as per normal for first sightings).
First Sightings that are posted in the closed ARCHIVE topic will be mirrored here for people to discuss/comment, if not already posted here by one of the members first (if it is posted here first, it will be mirrored into the closed ARCHIVE topic).

And don't worry if you post something here that isn't new, as the members here won't make a fuss about it. But if you think you have found a new toy, maybe have a quick look at the last few posts of the closed ARCHIVE topic first, or have a look at the Latest Sightings Box underneath the Board's banner.

Let's start off with a mirroring of the First Sightings posted so far for 2019...


Christmas Eve saw the last new Transformers item for 2018 at a national retailer - Rescue Bots Academy Hotshot at Toyworld in the Brisbane CBD store for $50...

Also, the first of the Rescue Bots Academy toys at a Major Retailer here - the Electronic Hotshot for $50.


But the big news is the arrival of WFC Siege toys in Australia, with three of the wave 1 size classes being found at Toyworld stores in Victoria and South Australia yesterday.

Botbots now in Australia.
Toyworld were the first with Siege toys, and now first with the Botbots toys, with the single packs, 5-packs and 8-packs found at a Toyworld in Melbourne.
Plus, hot off the press - new Studio Series Deluxe toys found at a Kmart in Hornsby/Sydney. This fifth wave has Sideswipe, WW2 Bumblebee, Barricade, Crankcase, and should also have the rusty Clunker Bumblebee.

After a relatively quiet December and early January, we've seen another surge of new Transformers toys hit the stores in Australia in the last week... but unfortunately, they are very slow to appear around the country (most sightings so far are from Toyworlds in Victoria).
- WFC Siege - still waiting for the toyline to show up in the major retailers (other than Toyworld), the second wave has already been found, with Battlemasters Aimless and Pteraxadon found in NSW and ACT... and we are still yet to see the Micromasters at all (the wave 1 Leaders were also just found in NSW and VIC).
- Movie Mission Vision - the two gimmick toys of Bumblebee and Shatter were found at a couple of Toyworlds in the southern states, for about $40 each.
- Also from the Bumblebee Movie toyline comes the second wave of Nitro sized Energon Ignitors, with Blitzwing and Dropkick found at Kmarts and BigWs in a few different states.
- Rescue Bots fans haven't missed out either with more of the Academy toys appearing (Mega Mighties Bumblebee & Hotshot for $20 at Toyworld) and a new wave of Rescan bots with the new VTOL Blades (should also have the new cement mixer Salvage) found at Kmart.

More of wave 2 of the WFC Siege toys have been found... while still waiting for the major department stores to get the toyline at all.
This time it is the Voyager wave 2 toys - Soundwave and Starscream - found at a Toyworld in Melbourne.

Wave 3 Cyberverse Ultra Optimus Prime found at a BigW, which should also be with Slipstream.

A couple of sightings at Toyworlds in Victoria, for the wave 2 Siege Leader "Galaxy Upgrade Optimus Prime" (based on the Cybertron/Galaxy Force Optimus toy from the Unicron Trilogy).
Considering this toy has seen an early release in North America (before its scheduled July release), it could actually be here now as well... but with only Toyworld and Toymate stocking Leader Class toys in Australia, it might not be easy to track this down domestically.
