Default TAS Transformers Sightings.

Post here anything Transformers related (toys, merch, etc) you find in a retail store in TASMANIA.
Please try to include the price, and if it isn't a limited item, please mention the location.

Not that it looks like many folks are from Tas or the NT, but...

Picked up Beachcomber and Brawn from Launceston Toyworld today, $6.90 each. Had the rest of the wave there too, as well as the Animated legends figures and the recent Animated Activators wave (Dirge, Grimlock, Megatron, Cliffjumper etc).

Also still had the SE deluxe Classics figures in stock, heaps of Dragstrip and Megatrons. Not sure if Overkill is short-packed, but I've only seen one of him in my travels so far.

Also had one of the 25th Anniversary Primes, this one didn't seem as pink so I can only assume the lighting in Toyworld is crap

Meanwhile at Kmart, there's still a decent amount of Animated deluxes from the past 3 waves (Sentinel Primes, Soundwaves, Swoops, etc) and Voyagers (Grimlocks, Primes, Lugnuts).

The Animated Leader Class figures are on special BTW, $74.95. No stickers or tickets anywhere, just happened to check on the scanner. Might be worth checking at your local Kmarts to see if this is the case wherever you are too.

My brother picked up Hound and Cyclonus in Burnie Kmart yesterday.

Still no sign of them in Launceston...

Really hope we get some other tassie (or NT) members posting sightings soon, or else it'll look like you're the only one there.

Finally had the new deluxes in Toyworld Launceston...

Hound, Cyclonus, Starscream, Smokescreen, Cheetor, Dinobot...at least one of each left still.

And some weird-ass Optimus-head bubblebath dispenser thing for $20


Okay then, just Inferno to go and that's it for Universe for the time being

Actually, that's probably not such a bad thing...I'd be skint if they brought out new Classics alongside the new Movie-line.
