G2 FOC Bruticus appears at Australian Retail

Yes, G2 Bruticus is a TRU "exclusive" at retail here in Australia, priced at $99.99.
It has appeared on the [Links are hidden for guests. Please Register.] and [Links are hidden for guests. Please Register.] in New South Wales, Australia in TRU.

Personally, I'm keeping my Amazon preorder. $70 vs $100, I'm happy to wait for the extra $30. Just goes to show how "exclusive" he turned out to be, now being at Australian TRU, Amazon and BBTS. Definitely good for everyone, though, considering its the best version of the toy (and I have all 3 current versions to compare).

It means when you jump markets and the store it was exclusive too doesn't exist. You find another one.

When I saw the thread title the first reaction in my mind was 'whaaaat?' lol. Seeing as I have two from BBTS for not much more than the cost of one from TRU's price above. Soit's still a win win: crisis averted for me, and it's great to see Hasbro sending a few (FoC) items Australias way, unexpectedly and/or early though they may be!

Australia seems to get really random releases. We still don't have anything past Wave 2 of Prime deluxe or Wave 1 of Prime Voyagers, but we still have Takara Jetwing Optimus Prime shelf warming in most retailers since last year!

I got mine from Toyworld in the city this morning. $125. Put away from Christmas. Not G2 colouring though but it didn't appeal to me.

I'd buy Jetwing prime except he's to bulky to be worth shipping on his own and I've yet to drip over some place or some one selling them that has enough other things I'd like to be worth getting it - same thing with Year of the Dragon Optimus - I'd like the grey grill version sometime but it's just not sensible to ship something that big on it's own as a single purchase.
