Wonder if that price is the same in Blacktown, might try to head down there tomorrow afternoon.

The again, why? The toys are quite horrible from most accounts, so why waste $30?

The age old conflict of "Buy crap vs. wanting to sate addiction"

If that's Uncle Pete's standard price, they must be importing from an American wholesaler, (US wholesale would be somewhere around AU$15, as the retail price is about AU$20 over there)... so an independent store could easily sell Voyagers for $30 here.
So if it isn't a sale price, they should be supported, so that the bigger retailers start taking notice, and maybe start importing themselves from America (if parallel importing is allowed for toys).

It's very tempting... especially at that price but... I'm just not sold on Prime toys probably because I'm not emotionally invested in the characters. They all bore me to tears.

So nothing at Uncle Petes Blacktown (I consider RotF and DotM stuff as moot by now), but I think the store may be shutting down, so perhaps that is why they have no new stock.

Blacktown Big W is selling the Prime deluxes for $23.64 or some such, the regular deluxe price, and the voyagers (6 Primes, 1 Megatron) for $50 each.
So many Bees, only 1 or 2 of the other 3. No smaller figures.

So Big W deluxes are cheaper normally than Targets sale price.

Nothing of note at Myer.

I think that'd be a 1st Sighting right there!
(For Big W stores anyway! )
