Default TF5 Last Knight Movie toys already found in Australia

Just like in 2014, it looks like Toyworld has managed to get their hands on Movie gimmick toys months before the release date, and just went ahead and put them straight out on the shelves.
Found by member Paulbot at a Toyworld in Melbourne, are the Transforming Titans - Optimus and Bumblebee, for $25 each.

Found at a Toyworld

Don't expect these figures, or the other regular Movie toys, to show up in other stores, as the global release date is April 24th, and these were likely to be an accidental early release.
In February 2014 it was an error on the part of the Hasbro warehouse to send out the TF4 Lost Age Movie toys, so maybe the same happened again this time.

Looks like we aren't the only ones with Movie toys making their way to store shelves by accident, with both Chile and Serbia.

Both locations had the Deluxe Premier Edition toys being found (Barricade, Berserker, Bumblebee, Slash), and if more Movie toys start showing up around the world, Hasbro might abandon the global release date of April 24th... which I recall them doing for TF2 or TF3 when there was a big early release of toys at one of the major American store chains.

A store in America has now broken the street date as well, putting out their Movie toys a month early.
