    For those in Australia who didn't yet know... and for those foreigners wanting to keep up with what is going on down under... the first two figures from Wave 4 are now in Australia - Voyager Broadside and Leader Skyshadow.
    We are still yet to see here the wave 4 Deluxe, Legends and Titanmasters... and are yet to get good distribution of wave 3 Voyagers (Optimus & Megatron), Leader (Sixshot) and Titanmasters (Fangry wave).

    Broadside photo was posted to Ozformers by member EazyD, and the Skyshadow photo was posted by member Oztimus.

    Meanwhile in Canada I finally found a single Hot Rod for the first time at one of my Walmarts yesterday.

    I'm happy for you guys. Hasbro no longer distributes in the United States. At least, that's the impression I get from only ever seeing wave 1 of Titan Masters on the shelves. Not shocking, but stores seem in no way interested in restocking anything after Christmas.

    Yes, good to see that someone can find new product out there. The distribution problem has hit Atlanta quite hard after Christmas. Seems like Hasbro is not shipping to large retailers, just to make way for a massive influx of movie figures to clog stores until next Christmas. I live in a city of 4.5million people, and we still have wave 2 at the places that actually have Titans Return. Most stores only have animated stuff at the moment.

    It's a bad combo. I know the stores basically can't wait to get their mitts on movie stuff, but retailers also seem to wait quite a while after Christmas to make any substantial restocks on toys. So who knows, they might just be waiting to get movie stuff and skip over the remainder of Titans Return. It didn't help that retailers rolled out huge amounts of wave one around Christmas proudly, as if to say "check out all these new toys that actually came out 6 months ago!"

    ^Nice find! Great for all Aussie Transfans. How much for Leader class figs in Australia? Im looking at that Broadside and thinking of PMing some Aussie Board Members to get one for me to ship to Malaysia. :D

    Any signs of Broadside in New Zealand? I've been checking everywhere in Auckland and I still can't Broadside yet. They're still selling figures from 2015 here!

    Distribution of Titan Returns have been so weird lately. Megatron and Optimus showed up in K-mart and some Big W's ages ago and yet have failed to appear over here in SA... and now it seems Myers is completely skipped Leader Wave 2, which is slowly showing up in Toys R Us and Big W has moved on to Voyager Wave 4?

    I'm starting to worry that I'll miss out on Megatron.

    Cheapest here seems to be Kmart at AUD $59.95, and Target has them for AUD $79.95 - but neither of these has been sighted with Wave 3 or 4 Leaders so far. In most other places - including those where Sixshot and Sky Shadow have been sighted - TR Leaders in Australia go for AUD $89.95.

    Voyagers mostly retail for AUD $49.95, although a couple of places have them at AUD $39.95 (most places only seem to have Wave 1 and 2 at the moment).

    Best bet would probably be to hold off until the midyear sales (hopefully by then, the retailers will have also gotten in some Wave 3 and 4 stock).

    [Note for our American counterparts: AUD $1 currently buys about US 75cents, so if you multiply these prices by 3/4, you roughly get the US dollar equivalent of what we Aussies pay for our transformers :scalper ]

    Oh thanks mate! Hmm, so better to wait here too. Malaysia will most likely get Wave 4 TR stuff by May / June 2017. :(

    No... what the heck are you talking about, bro??
    Wave 4 is Kup.. Broadside..Skyshadow..etc. And I think you got TR Deluxe Windblade confused with Arcee. There us so far no HM Arcee in this new line....
