    Looks like the same is happening in Australia as what's been happening in some American stores. Restocking staff are putting out the ROTF toys as they arrive, but the store isn't able to sell them, and they remove them with a few hours.

    Found were a fair few of the main first wave too...
    2 hours later...
    On a related note, the Bumper Battler Workzone Bulkhead was found here the other day, which I think some sources were claiming it was cancelled.Ozformers Transformers Collectors Australia - View Single Post - QLD Transformers Sightings.

    Workzone Bulkhead is a good sign.

    I was wondering what was going to happen to the Bumper Battlers.

    I still have my doubts that we'll see any Bumper Battlers in the US beyond the Soundwave/Lockdown wave, considering Target's dropping of that subline.

    Really hate to pay that ridiculously amount of money for international shipping just to get some toys over here that have their general local releasing date in Melbourne runs one or two months behind some other countries.

    Don't they know they're going to make heaps of cash once they DO sell them? Might as well put them on the shelves now.
    And make us happy...

    Yeah, but they might show up on Hasbrotoyshop or some other online stores. What I mean by "good news" is, Workzone Bulkhead has been produced and is on store shelves. Which lends more credibility to the notion that the rest of this year's Animated toys are indeed coming out, and not as store exclusives or anything.

    I hope this sighting indacates that Hasbro still has to dish ou the last of Animated before the RoTF toy line officially comes out.

    I remember when the Toys for the First Movie came out in Australia. Target had them out about a Month before the offical release date and never took them off the shelves. Must be a little different this time.

    I just found and bought all four wave one Scouts... I'm in Melbourne, Australia.

    They also had three of the four wave one Voyagers (no Demolishor by the time I got there), both preview Deluxes, and a whole stack of Legends, FABS and Robot Heroes.

    This was at Target, Bayside Shopping Centre, Frankston. :p
