    If I'd known people wanted photos, I'd have taken one :p  That said, if I'd had $140, I'd own them both tonight...

    I'd prefer photos as well, but we Australians don't have the habit of creating hoax sightings like some Americans do.

    What was the location of the stores? I hope they were found at Parramatta Westfields.

    shazam's sighting was in Sydney. OCTA's sights are intentionally vague to ward off scalpers. I assume CH means... Castle Hill? I dunno.

    You're aware that other countries also have currencies named "dollar", and the conversion is not always 1:1, right?

    Target exclusive in the States everywhere else might be different.

    Not in Australia, but it'll more than likely still be a Target exclusive here in the US.

    Also, about $42 USD doesn't sound that bad to me. Especially since I'm only going to be getting one of the sets (Bruticus). Though I wouldn't be surprised if it was less than that, as there's usually a bit of a mark up for other countries compared to the US price for things.

    When you invent something like the radio, the television or the internet then you can make fun of Americans.

    Yeah, I'm not saying anything about where I found them, hoping they're still there tonight so I can treat myself to a birthday gift that I'll actually want for a change instead of yet another round of shirts and scratchies that I never win anything on.

    Price was $69.95 each. They look pretty, too.

    1. Nobody was making fun of America or any other country, and 2. you are at serious risk of starting a flamewar. Just, don't. Save it for someplace else, because here is not the place for that talk.
