    Hey all,

    Just wondering, has anyone in Australia sighted anywhere selling decent Transformers based on G1 characters? I've seen a Masterpiece Scarscream (Kind of out of my price range :p ) as well as a Universe Powerglide but that's about it really. Is anywhere around the place selling anything else or is the Universe line largely the only line of non Animated/ROTF Transformers we get these days?

    Cheers in advance.

    Cheers :p 

    I've checked out a Toys R Us, they had a few exclusive Universe figures but nothing too impressive really. I was hoping for the WW Grimlock that's a Toys R Us exclusive overseas, but oh well :p

    That's about how far we're behind when it comes to Transformers, I think :p  That was the case with the Animated line at least.

    Far as shopping online goes, generally because most decent figures on ebay also come with collosal shipping charges.
