This a price comparison listing of non-exclusive Transformers toys in Australia, for collectors to use, and archived for future reference.

This only covers the nation-wide store-chains that carry toys, through Hasbro Australia - BigW, Target, Kmart, ToysRUs, Toyworld, Toymate (mostly NSW), Myer... plus Coles, Woolworths, David Jones and Zing for a smaller range of figures.
Independent stores, online stores, import stores, clearance outlets (Reject Shop, TKMaxx), and comic shops are NOT included.

PLEASE POST any missing or changed prices (here or in the sightings section), and it will eventually be added to this first post.
Prices are rounded to the nearest dollar if it is within 10 cents of that dollar.

A little bit late, and it took a few weeks to compile and complete... here is the latest resource guide for Australian fans, which should be useful for at least a year and a half for those of us who regularly toyhunt at Australian retailers. (particularly now that it is harder to import Hasbro items from overseas)

Updated with the first of the Bumblebee Movie toy prices, and a few more Cyberverse prices too.

Kmart have dropped the price of their Studio Series Voyagers, from $49 to $45... which would be great if they didn't just do a huge restock of (shelfwarming) wave 2 Voyagers... while the rest of the world is now onto wave 6.

I'm tempted by them both at $45 but I'm also happy with my existing versions of those characters. I might bite on the battle damage version of the megatron if it ever gets here.

Gotta love the stock ordering & wave distributions in this country

Here, have 4000 pallets of Wave 2, there won't be any issues moving the stock in the near future.
