    A friend of mine found the Movie line Screen Battles packs at Hobby Co. Macarthur Square in New South Wales (Australia) for $ 42.95 each (bear in mind Hobby Co is a specialist retailer so the prices might be lower at brick and mortar chains).

    Available were First Encounter (Deluxe class Barricade with Sam, Mikaela and Frenzy minifigures) and Final Stand (Deluxe class Longarm with movie-accurate decos, a Mikaela driver figure and a posable battle-damaged 2008 Bumblebee figurine).

    I apologise for the poor quality of this photo:

    Hmm... might have to check out Hobby Co. tomorrow as I need some acryics anyway. No, actually I will get them from the Jap stores but check out Hobby Co. anyway to see if the 'First Encounter' set is worth grabbing.

    I read that there would be variations in the paint apps from the origional deluxe releases. Do you notice any?

    I think they painted Frenzy's feet black so it blends in better as Barricade's grill. I don't have it myself so I don't know.

    The origional Frenzy has black feet too. Maybe it's just the Japanese release that will be recolored slightly. It was mentioned on F2F's preorder page.

    They have also been seen at TRU in Melbourne for $49.99.

    How are the human figures in terms of paiting and mold?

    Oh yeah, I forgot about that. However, Hasbro's stock photo shows the Frenzy in Barricade's chest appears to be molded black.

    Did we ever figure out what, exactly, the BB in "Final Stand" is? Is he just a chopped Robot Replica?
