So these figures will only be available via this set then?

Wonder if they might be released separately at a later date.

Just been informed by TRU Aus on their FB page that they don't know how much it will be or if they will be getting it in at all.

Looking at the TRU HK page, the reservation period ends April 3rd, and the toy is to be released at the end of April... so it might mean that they won't be released in stores, the stores will only get in enough stock to cover pre-orders.
I have a feeling that they would still have some stock on shelves... but maybe not a lot, as the pre-orders would be where they will be getting the bulk of the sales.

The exchange rate at the moment (1 to 5.97) means that the set would cost about AU$170 (as noted in the first post)... or about AU$180 at most banking rates. That is actually a little less than what the individual figures would cost (about $195), and they would be in cheaper "retail" packaging.

Hopefully both 5-packs show up here... for a respectable price.

From the TRU website...

Quote:
The 5-figure Chaos on Velocitron set features a figure at each Titans Return scale: 1 Leader Class, 1 Voyager Class, 1 Deluxe Class, 1 Legends Class, and 1 Titan Master figure. The Titan Master figure becomes the head for the Deluxe, Voyager, and Leader Class figures.

The pack features five special edition figures, including a special edition Titan Master figure with die-cast parts, and a special edition Legends Class clone character figure available for the first time since 1987.


It's Chaos on Velocitron as the fastest bots in the universe race for dominion over the power of speed. Rodimus Prime and the Autobots must prevent the power from falling into the hands of the sinister Decepticons.


Figure Specs:
Leader Class Quickswitch
Voyager Class Laser Prime
Deluxe Class Autobot Nautica
Legends Class Fastclash
Titan Master Rodimus Prime

The moment RK or PC has it on preorder I'm buying. Too risky to wait for retail

For those interested in this set... the Velocitron set has just popped up on Amazon (sold by Amazon) for US$100 plus US$25 for shipping (for one).

I ordered two (one for me and one for a friend) and it came to AU$338... which is AU$170 each (the same price as in HK without shipping), and 15% less than the price it would be in Australia if ToysRUs ends up selling it here.

This unexpected, as it is supposed to be a TRU exclusive in America like everywhere else, so Amazon shouldn't be able to sell it.

It doesn't get released until June 17th, so it will be interesting to see what happens on that date. (at least with Amazon it's not too much to worry about, because if it was a mistaken listing, or it wasn't meant to be available to export, they will refund the money quickly and easily)
