    Ultimate Optimus Prime and Predaking are now at Kmart in Australia.
    Probably out in America very soon then.

    Optimus is AU$79 and Predaking is AU$69. I think they are both going to be the same price in America (US$60).

    If someone gets down to a Kmart and buys them to review, more pics will be posted here, or where the two photos below are from.

    Images and credit goes to Ozformers member Sinnertwin - I'm not sure if he's a member here. If he is here and he owns up to it, credit goes to him.

    Woo! If you get a review over on oz-formers can you have someone snap a pic of the barcodes for me? That's the best way for us to check status/pricing/on order info.

    Thanks in advance...

    No, he's not. That was a typo in the slide that was left-over from the Cyberverse Abominus set.

    Neither Predaking nor Optimus are exclusive to any store.

    Those are some big toys. Can't wait see Predaking along side the other Preds and Voyager Op.

    Dammit, and here I thought I was done hunting for this month.
    Not going to complain, though.
    Pass on Prime, but that Predaking...
    Oh yes...

    "While the slide for Beast Fire Predaking stated that he was a Target exclusive, the presenters indicated that was an error when asked about it in the showroom."

    Toy Fair 2013 - Transformers Wiki

    Limiting a $60 toy to one store would be mighty silly.

    And yet TrU is the only store carrying MP's.

    MPs are a line, not a single figure.
    I think having that entire line exclusive was a mistake on their part, as evidence by how impossible it is to find them from anyone other than scalpers.

    Limiting the availability of a single figure in a line that was not limited makes even less sense.

    Metroplex will most likely be a TRU exclusive.

    That's funny, since BBTS and TFsource have already been told by Hasbro they will get them and can soon post pre-orders. So...no, it won't.

    Probably get Ult Predaking if he is in scale with the other voyagers. OP is an easy pass for me.

    Amusingly enough, it looks like the Voyager Predaking is in scale with the Cyberverse figures, and the Ult will be scaled to fit in with the Deluxe and Voyagers. Not sure where that leaves the Cyberverse Predaking. O-o

    you can thank the fandom being too cheap to buy masterpiece skywarp for full retail for that. or else we'd still have masterpieces at wal-mart, and you know, actually able to find them

    seriously, this fandom has no right to bitch about masterpieces being only at TRU, its the fandom's fault skywarp was a colossal failure

    anyways, to be on topic, i'll probably get predaking, maybe get optimus too

    Cool. Hopefully more pics of Predaking come out soon, I'm very interested in that one.

    Yeah I don't recall BBTS or TFSource ever putting preorders up well ahead of time for items that were slated to be store exclusives (they do get store exclusives, but after the fact while raiding local stores, like with the TRU MPs). If it were a shared exclusive, I guess I could see that, but until told otherwise I'm still working under the impression that Metroplex will be a mass release.

    WST?

    Same here. I may get that and other beast TFs so they'll look great together.

    In Canada Prime will cost $10 more than Predaking.
