    Update: the pages are still active, but all of those pre-order listings no longer show up in search results via the Amazon US Storefront.

    In browsing the listings for some of the other figures mentioned recently, I noticed advanced listings for what I assume to be large scale (?) Optimus, Megatron, Jetfire, Shockwave, and Ultra Magnus.

    These are being sold on Amazon Australia via the Amazon US Store front. They all have a pre-order price of $74.71 AUD which is in the $50+ USD bracket.

    Does anyone know what these might be?

    Megatron (E3750)
    Shockwave (E3576)
    Ultra Magnus (E3479)
    Jetfire (E3748)
    Optimus (E4522)

    Edit: for full list of links, see post by @payres

    A leader class Shockwave? That would be amazing! (Though I was hoping for a Voyager WFC Shockwave, personally)

    Seems to be part of a larger series though... like the WFC stuff being announced (smaller, with the same release dates). The dates could just be placeholders (although I note that they're not all the same, some are Dec, some are January... there's one with an April 19 release date).


    Prowl (E3636)
    Greenjackets (E3640)
    Woodducks (E3639)
    Sixgun (E4378)
    Bumble (E3641)

    Same. With Optimus being released as a Voyager, I was hoping for Voyagers of Shockwave and Soundwave at least.
    I'll still buy any Shockwave they make, but a Leader is just too big.

    Seems like too many for leader class so I'm guessing big gimmicky cyberverse figures.

    Maybe this time we'll get a Diaclone Delta Magnus repaint of Leader Ultra Magnus, since we didn't get one from the CW toy. I wouldn't mind a black "Nemesis" version too to go along with POTP Nemesis Prime and Rodimus Unicronus

    Hope of these are SIEGE figures, that they don't had intrusive gimmicks. Hope for a Jetfire with a great G1 jet mode better than the T30 leader and just as solid as the voyager. Hope Magnus has a cab robot.

    If they're doing a Leader Magnus, I feel a PotP retool is likely.

    I would be a fan of having the combined mode being White Prime with an extensively retooled inner bot as Armored Magnus.

    Although the great irony here is that Orion Pax's design was meant for Ultra Magnus in the movie. Hasbro initially planned the movie to introduce ALL animation-first, toy-second designs. Then they switched Magnus to a Diaclone rerelease mid-production and Sunbow took Ultra Magnus' character model, removed his beard and made it Orion Pax.

    I'm guessing these are for the Siege series since I can't imagine them being in any other line other then Cyberverse I guess?

    Also are we sure these aren't just Voyager figures? Because from what I've heard Australia is known for jacking up prices often.

    Someone also suggested g1 reissues? @kaijuguy19

    It’s got to be one of the two?

    Unless it is Bayverse related?

    Wait a minute. If these listings belong to WFC Siege, they are not leader class, as the Optimus Prime in this series is a voyager class figure, and, like kaijuguy19 suggested, those might be just Australian enormous prices.
