Continuing the global trend of Movie toys suddenly showing up this week, most of the rest of the first waves of Bumblebee Movie have now been found in Australia as well (at a NSW Target store), including the four sizes of Energon Igniters (Speed, Power, Power Plus, Nitro), the Titan Changers, and Power Charge Bumblebee.
(photos edited and re-hosted)
Also found today, in a Melbourne Toyworld, is the first of the Rescue Bots Academy toys - Electronic Hotshot for $50.

It has been a big week for Transformers in Australia, with so many new toys found by fans. Fingers crossed for some sales to help move them.

- Bumblebee Movie Vision Helmet & Stinger Blaster, found at BigW and Toyworld for about $100 and $40 respectively.
- POTP Titan Predaking at a Toyworld in Brisbane for $300 (a week after they were selling it at the OzComicCon at their booth).

From the last few days (and a sighting I missed from last month)...

- Rescue Bots Rescan, waves 18 & 19, which has the new figures of Race Car Heatwave and ATV Bumblebee.
- POTP Nemesis Prime is a store exclusive to Amazon Australia, and is now available there for $100. (they are also the only ones outside of Toyworld to have POTP Predaking from Hasbro Australia)
- Studio Series Bumblebee Showcase Helmet is also on hand at Amazon Australia, for $112, and looks to be the only "retailer" to be stocking it in Australia.
- Energon Igniter Power Plus w2 Shatter, found at BigW.
- Bumblebee Movie Titan Changer w2 (re-release of TF5 Bumblebee and Megatron) also found at BigW.
- also, the Trading Card Game has now appeared at two national retailers - Kmart and BigW, with the Starter Pack being $24-25 and the Booster Packs being $6-7.

Well, it looks like Amazon Australia have it in stock in Australia, for AU$260, with free shipping if you are an Amazon Prime Member.
https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B079VNN..._pTa5BbPQEVMRH

(or get the American version for AU$245 with free Prime Member shipping, as it is one of the US items now available through Amazon Australia... but it will take an extra two weeks to get to you - and shipping will be more if you aren't a Prime member)
https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B079VNNGM5

Also, Amazon Australia have POTP Nemesis Prime in hand for AU$100 as well.

...and, the second wave of Titan Changers (which is not only a world first, but completely unknown). But it's nothing exciting, as it is just a re-release of Optimus from wave one in new packaging, while the two "new" figures are only the other two TF5 Titan Changers (Camaro Bee and Megatron)... which all look to be identical to their earlier releases.



I also found the Trading Card Game Starter Pack and booster packs... but took me a while to find them. They were in the DVD area, but with such a small range of trading cards, it isn't a big section to stand out.

Hasbro Australia must have received a new container of Transformers a couple weeks ago as we have a lot more new toys being found this week.

- TF4 Tiny Changer wave 2 found at Coles.
- RID Crash Combiners wave 4 (Bisk/Saberhorn, Optimus/Grimlock) found at discount store TK Maxx, and apparently Toymate.

And Kmart have three exclusives for the Bumblebee Movie show up in their stores in a couple of states already.
- Studio Series Bumblebee 2-pack - $45
- Bumblebee w/ 3 Titans Return cassettes - $45
- Electronic Titan Changer Bumblebee - $25

The bumper week of new Transformers toy sightings in Australia continues, with the second wave of Cyberverse Warriors (Megatron, Acidstorm, Windblade) and the Bumblebee Movie voice changer masks (minor redeco TF5 Bumblebee mask, remoulded TF5 Sqweeks mask).
