No photos yet, but just like the two (only) sightings of Generations Voyager Blitzwing and Octone over in Perth, the Movie Voyagers from wave 3 (Nitro and Scorn) have also been found in Perth, at a Target store.
Hopefully they show up in other states and stores... as well as the GEN Voyagers.

Wave 3 Movie 1-steps have been found at a Target store in Victoria, which has Cogman, Scorn and Drift... all with the new Cyberfire gimmick promo on the front of the packaging (to encourage you to buy the large Dragonstorm 1-step toy, to activate the hidden paint details that are actually on all 1-step toys, not just the later waves).

As some had suggested some time ago, Zing have started stocking the second Movie Masterpiece toy - Optimus Prime... for $198.
It is likely to be their exclusive, as Bumblebee didn't end up showing up at other retailers.

Also had a sale where depending on what level EB member you were gave increasing discount from 10 - 20%

So might be worth checking out your local

Found yesterday at two different Toyworlds, RID Combiner Galvatronus (wave 2) in Melbourne, and TF5 Sqweeks Voice Changer Mask (wave 2) plus the Rescue Bots Flip Racer Chomping trackset in Brisbane.

Spotted this weekend - the final wave of RID 1-steps (Soundwave), and the latest Rescue Bots Megabot (Blades). Both at Kmart stores. (along with more of the licensed Dickie diecast vehicles, for RID and the Movie)

Wave 3 of the RID Activators are now here (Optimus and Soundwave), sighted at a Kmart in Melbourne.

RID Legion Twinferno is now out in Australia, first found at Coles.
And the big Rescue Bots Flip Racers Optimus Trailer trackset has apparently been found at a Toyworld for $120.

Generations Titans Return wave 5 Legends (Seaspray & Cosmos), now out in Australia.

That just leaves Ramhorn and Overlord left to be released here. The Legends were unlikely to show up here, with the new POTP toyline just weeks away, so who knows... maybe we might still see those other two here as well.

Power of the Prime toys now out in Australia... first sighted at a Toyworld in Canberra.

So far found are the Deluxe, Voyager and Legends sizes, with Prime Masters said to be on their way.

Posted up on Facebook - the Leaders and Prime Masters found at a Toyworld in Victoria.
That's the entire first wave released, and showing up at Toyworld first.
(other retailers will depend on when they clear out enough of their old stock first)
