    I just received an email/newsletter from Toys R Us here in australia saying that they will have the DOTM lines starting to appear on their shelves as of this Sunday 15th of May that means they probably already have them in the stores just are not able to put them on the shelves til then

    Has anyone else received this news?

    Well the thing is the 15th is a Sunday and last I checked they don't open on Sundays so most likely they will put them on the shelves Sunday night and start selling on Monday(16th)

    That said we're I believe about 8 or so hours ahead of the US so time difference wise it will be Sunday for you guys when they sell them here on the MOnday or whatever

    My local TRU is open on Sundays, I'll go check and report back.

    I'm on east coast so I'm more like 10 hours ahead :p

    Well I would be happy to be proven wrong about them being closed on Sundays or not....might give me somewhere to go on Sundays if it is true

    I think it depends on each TRU if they are open on Sundays or not. I'm just saying my local one is open. Good luck with your hunt :)

    Update: Aussies go check out Big W and Target stores as I was in both just this morning and there were a tonne of them....I have also now put Sentinel Prime Leader Class on layby as he is 88AUD at Big W and 99AUD at target, they also had the voyager Prime, Megatron and Ironhide(Optimus looks more deluxe and Ironhide is bigger, they also had a few of the deluxes such as Crankcase, Skids, Ratchet, Bumblebee, Roadbuster and Starscream, plus the cyberverse ones and the playsets.

    I also saw the Powerglide one at Target

    So leaders are 88-99 between the two stores
    Deluxes are between 24 and 30 as per usual
    The voyagers were bout 48-49 at Big W and 49-50 at Target

    that is give or take when it comes to cents

    Hope this helps. Now all I can say is get ready and..............GO!!!

    Man I already have everything I want from DOTM Wave 1! lol Leader SP, Voyager Megs, BB, Ratchet, Crankcase and Screamer deluxes. Kmart, Target and Big W in my area all put up their displays within the last week. I wonder if TRU will have some 2nd wave stuff?

    Well this was the first time I saw them

    I still don't like that Optimus and Megatrons' voyager figures look bout the size of previous deluxes...well that and Optimus' rediculously long legs throw his proportions off.
