    Aldi (Sunshine VIC) has the old Cyber Commander Bumblebee $30. (No Cyber Commander Optimus Prime that I could see).

    Bigger picture this time, since there was more to fit in. Sighted at Target, Morayfield:

    20191212_144306.jpg

    That Astrotrain (bottom right) isn't there any more, and given the effort involved upon reaching the checkout I suspect he wasn't meant to be on the shelf to begin with. Much appreciation to the poor woman serving for getting it all sorted out. But the important part is they have at least gotten 1 (likely 2) in, so they'll hopefully start showing up (sans complications) elsewhere. A lone Shockwave was behind him.

    Also of note is the Spinster and Crosshairs in the top left. I haven't been watching the Studio Series releases enough to know if anything pictured is relevant (there was a jet of some description behind the Dropkick on the right), nor have I taken any interest in Cyberverse (which is why they're barely in frame).

    KMart also had quite a number of Longhauls but I didn't get a photo..

    Late notice (what with Christmas right after the weekend and all) but Cyberverse Spark Armor Ark Power Optimus isn't a BigW exclusive anymore. Saw a half-dozen or so at K-Mart, Morayfield, at $79 on Thursday. Completely forgot about it until just now (mostly because the figure doesn't interest me personally, but hey - someone has to want it, else they wouldn't make it).

    Didn’t know it was suppose to be a BigW exclusive. Anyhow, it’s $69 at Kmart. :)

    Wasn't sure if it was supposed to be or if it just worked out that way. For some reason I have it stuck in my head that they were an exclusive, but I couldn't for the life of me tell you where I got that idea from in the first place. Maybe just availability...?
    Could have been that price on Thursday, too. I honestly have zero interest in the entire Cyberverse figure series. Not sure how they manage to sell any of them at all when both Siege and Studio Series are also on shelves at the same basic price.

    You’re most probably right. Wasn’t questioning you. I’m just oblivious to Cyberverse in general.

    They'll probably have to pick it up from a different store or have it shipped. They might be offered a refund since it's only a pre-order deposit at this point.

    Yeah. No telling what the next year will bring haha. Though Zing is already online mostly anyways right? Most Zing stores are usually integrated with EB games and some locations none at all. I hope they last long enough though! :p

    I would guess that the stores closing are because there are too many in too small an area. Those things pop up like toadstools...

    Yeah, from what I’ve heard one of the stores closing near my suburb is very local, not a lot of traffic aside from regulars living within 5 minutes. The mall it resides in is relatively small as well.
