    Whoa. Finally a Singapore sightings thread...

    Most large retail outlets (Toys 'R us and such) have been stocked--since 2 weeks ago--with movie Bonecrusher, Swindle, Arcee, Robot Heroes Decepticon Sneak attack-pack and several scout-class toys that I've never seen around before (like Clocker).

    Voyager-class Optimus Prime, Megatron, and Brawl are back in stock too.

    Robot replicas are aplenty, as always.

    I recall seeing movie Megatron and Rachet, painted in metallic colours in Carrefour a week ago as well. Not too sure about this one.

    The metallic Voyager Megatron and Ratchet are apparently Carrefour exclusives in S'pore.

    Has anyone seen the Titanium WW Optimus vs Megatron 2 pack? I've tried looking in Orchard Rd, but it seems as if both TRU Forum and Paragon don't have them...

    Thanks for the tip! I'll be on the lookout, though I'm hoping to see a Takara release if any of G1 Starscream.

    single disc edition, 2-disc edition and 2 disc edition with the transforming Optimus Prime dvd case.

    Got mine from Gramophone. I guess HMV and Sembawang prolly have them in, too.

    I just want to update u guys. the masterpiece starscream is out in s'pore dis wk! i jus got mine today at TRU. the price is S$149.90. it's a TRU-s'pore exclusive only item so it won't be available anywhere else (dat's wat hasbro s'pore said).

    When i went there it hasn't been put on display yet. i had to ask the store supervisor to get the item. one word of advice pls avoid asking any of the other junior sales staff, when da 1st i asked it just draw a blank from them. to be on the safe side enquire with someone who is either a supervisor or manager position. ok guys hopefully by then they would've put the item on display already. happy hunting

    Takashimaya has the newer Real Gear Robots too!

    ---

    Thanks rizuan76, I'll definitely be on the lookout, though I'm wondering why in the world it's S$149.90 when it was released in the US for about half that price.

    I checked with one of the smaller stores (ahem, hobby stores) if the Takara version would have battle damage. Nope. Though it would probably come up to S$150 either way.

    Btw the TRU outlet dat i went was the tampines one. yup u are correct Sycia the takara tomy version is da clean one(w/out battle damage).

    As for the price...get this if u are willing to wait until Feb'08. it's at S$135 only. the reason i bought it dis early is b'coz i can't wait dat long. & also if anybody is interested in pre-ordering the item there's a hobby/toy shop, it's call The Falcon's Hangar & they are located @
    261 Waterloo Centre, #01-27, Contact No: 62352390, Singapore 180261

    It's still not to late b'coz they are still taking in orders. i've only started to patronise dis shop recently. if anybody missed out on da TF classics series. they are already taking in pre-orders for the takara tomy version. due out in mar 2008.
    ok folks below is da website add. just f.y.i

    Yeah, I'll be getting my MP G1 Takara Screamer from Rapid Culture @ Cine.

    Saw the Legends Class 6-pack at TRU. The one with Jazz, Bee, Prime, Barricade, Megs and Starscream. Retailing at $59.90.

    They also still have some pieces left of the Unleashed Optimus Prime Turnaround.

    Hi Rizuan. Thanks for all the information!

    I went down to Carrefour just now, trying to get myself a Barricade, but was told someone carted away an entire trolley full of Bumblebees and Barricades saying he was going to give them away at some party (that's one hell of a lame lie). :(  Anyway, there are some more movie deluxe figures out:

    Wreckage
    Brawl

    Spotted a number of individual movie legends figures as well like:

    Rachet
    Starscream
    Blackout
    and of course Megatron that no one seems to want :lol 

    Also spotted Hasbro's G1 MP Starscream at the TRU in Suntec going for SG$149.

    Cyber Stompin' Optimus Prime & Bumblebee have were out as well (haven't seen them at TRU before).

    Going at $99.90

    They've also restocked some of the older Deluxes like Jazz, Brawl and Scorponok.

    TRU had some sets of the Desert Attack Blackout and Scorponok 2-pack.
