    - POTP Nemesis Prime is a store exclusive to Amazon Australia, and is now available there for AU$100. (also, Amazon Australia is only the second "retailer" outside of Toyworld stores to have in-stock, POTP Predaking from Hasbro Australia)

    - Studio Series Bumblebee Showcase Helmet is also on hand at Amazon Australia, for AU$112, and looks to be the only "retailer" to be stocking it in Australia.

    Some extra photos of the wave 2 Titan Changers... despite being a surprise to find out that there was a second wave, it was very disappointing to find that the two "new" figures are just re-releases of TF5 Titan Changers (Megatron and Bumblebee). Meanwhile, the third Titan Changer from TF5 (Optimus) who was in the first wave of Bumblebee Movie Titan Changers, might have been re-released in wave 2 packaging, because it has the co-sell of Megatron on it.
    (I can't find an image online of the back of wave 1 Optimus Box, to see who the co-sell was)

    Already had you in mind when I was taking the photos earlier in the day... ;) 
    (see last photo in my post above)

    My guess is that the consecutive product numbers might have meant that the three TF5 Titan Changers were originally planned to be wave 1, and then we'd get the new Shatter and new Bumblebee later as wave 2.

    The original co-sell was Shatter:

    EDIT: Maybe. That's European packaging.

    Sooo... if my theory is correct that Optimus, Megatron and Camaro Bee were originally meant to be wave 1, they must have needed to change the packaging at the last minute for Optimus so that it wasn't promoting a toy that wasn't to come out for a couple months... and then still use that original packaging when it was re-released in wave 2 with Megatron and Camaro Bee.
    (not that anyone will care... being Titan Changers, and unchanged reissues at that)
