    Since we have no Walmarts, they are a Toys R Us exclusive here. $99.99AUD, which is about $87USD, I believe. They've been spotted by people since the 22nd, but today a friend of mine provided photographic evidence. Toys R Us Liverpool Westfields.

    Pic with reciept.
    On store shelves.
    Scanned price.

    I checked with XE.com, and it's actually $87.4306 USD, which is cheaper than finding a retail-cost Walmart version and having it airmailed here.

    With our dollar being so high lately, we pay almost twice as much for stuff compared to American consumers. Bah.

    Why does every country get US exclusives except for us? I have a feeling it has to do with Bilingual packages..............:mad
