Default Plush Transformers found in Australia

We rarely get plush figures for Transformers, as the action-figure demographic doesn't often buy them, but some new ones have been found in a Melbourne shopping centre (Victoria Gardens at Richmond)... in a claw-machine.
There are six different ones - Optimus, Bumblebee and Megatron, each in both modes (truck, car, tank).
Unfortunately, they might not show up in stores... but fingers crossed that they do.

Very obscure place to have it, Vic Gardens is barely a shopping center.

Tinyjazz sent me a link to an ebay listing that has/had dozens of the six plushies, for about $10 each... so either they found them for sale somewhere, or spent a lot of time at one of those claw-grabber machines (or raided one).

I haven't heard of them being released here. Since they are made by Hasbro, they'd have to sell them to retailers themselves... and since I didn't expect them to come here, I had a friend send me a set from America (including the fifth one - Optimus).

I've ordered a set...
I'm a bit skeptical of eBay these days as I was burned a couple of times by supposedly Au sellers end of last year so hopefully it turns up.
I didn't really want the Bumblebee's but it was the only way I could get the Optimus'. Let's see what happens.
