Arrow Australian Transformers Price Comparison Listing 2014

Here we go again with another price comparison topic.
Previous ones for reference - 2011 - 2013.

This only covers the six major chains that carry a "full range" of toys - BigW, Target, Kmart, ToysRUs, Toyworld, Myer... plus Coles and Woolies on just the smaller figures.

PLEASE POST ANY missing or changed prices (here or in the sightings section), and it will be added to this first post.

Anything with $? means it has been sighted there, but no price is known yet.
Prices are rounded to nearest dollar if it is within 10 cents of that dollar.

Price Matching Policies of the Major Store Chains in Australia.

KEY to abbreviations...
Toylines = Movie-AOE, Power Battler-PB, One-Step-OS, Generations-GEN, Construct-bots-CB, Rescue Bots-RB, Hero Mashers-HM.

Kreo = DBC-Dinobot Charge, SSC-Scorn Street Chase, CBB-Cell Block Breakout, GSA-Grimlock Street Attack, LAR-Lockdown Air Raid.

Stores = BigW-BW, Target-TG, Kmart-KM, ToysRUs-TRU, Toyworld-TW, Myer-M, DavidJones-DJ, Coles-C, Woolworths-W.

Updated with ToysRUs prices (after going there yesterday).

Still missing a heap of Myer and Toyworld prices... I'll go to them sometime next week.

Updated with Myer prices from their toy catalogue, which covers the main chains for the "Generations" Movie toys (except Target's Voyager price).

I will chase up the gimmick line prices in the next couple weeks, but obviously it isn't a priority.
