    after being noted by Sledgehama of www.transformersnewzealand.com, I went to check my local Farmers store, and sure enough, the Plushformers G1 Prime and Bumblebee are out here in New Zealand, priced at $19.95 (and there's currently 30% off all toys this weekend at this store). Just to prove Sledgehama and my point, here's pics of them on the shelf:

    They seem kind of werid to me, I'd consider getting Bumblebee since it's a decent sale price, but I really can't spare the money right now. Anywho, you folks enjoy.

    $20 for a plushie? That's rather absurd. $8 I could understand, but $20?!

    That seems pretty steep for a plush. Are New Zealand prices drastically different from U.S. prices?

    Yes, these prices are NZ Dollars, which is roughly half US dollar, so these would probably be around $8-10 US I would assume. And they are individually available, not a two pack or anything.
