    Well, as you can see under my avatar, I am from Western Australia. I'm pretty keen on seeing how many Australians there are on this board, and if there is enough people and interest to see whether or not any of you fellow Aussies would like to make a social group?

    Also, a question : Do you guys find it hard to find transformers in retailer shops? It seems in America they have them everywhere, but a lot of shops here in Perth...well not so fortunate. Is it just me, or do you also experiance difficulty in collecting from toy lines, other than the movie-verse?

    But that's about it, I'm fairly new to this board, feel free to say g'day :)

    I bought HFTD Optimus Prime the day I first saw it. One month ago. I think that speaks for itself.

    Ohh sorry, my honest mistake :s
    It's just the impression I get when I read people talking about getting cheap figures from Walmart for $10 bucks, they just seem more common is all! But that's probably just as true as the assumption Australians ride around on kangaroos ahah.

    My local K-Mart and Target have both downsized thier TF sections recently. Must be the calm before the DotM storm.

    South!

    Feels great to see fellow Australian fans. Now I don't feel so lonely anymore. :D 

    Sucks that we didn't exactly get the final wave of the TFAnimated toys. I really wanted to get the chance to grab a Rodimus Minor and add him to my collections of the Transformers that are the coolest to me. Oh well.

    Yeah, it does suck, wanted to get him so bad! Gah, I hate forking out extra bucks for shipping! I'm still waiting on my United Wheeljack to arrive too.

    I agree with you though, it feels awesome to see fellow Australians here on the boards, thanks for replying guys! :)

    I'm not on OzFormers but I have some news for you Canberra folks. I just picked up RTS Lugnut for 30 dollars at Toyworld. In short, get the hell up to Fyshwick!
