    Kmart Mildura now has (had... :)  ) three of the first wave of Cyberverse deluxes, $29 each. Bumblebee was missing, but I'm sure I can find him at Target soon enough (but probably not at Big W - their Transformers section really sucks).

    I'm a bit suprised not to see reports from the capitals before this (especially that place in Qld that seems to get everything first).

    Mildura! The Sunraysia district. :) 

    Bumblebee is same height as his wave case mates. *sad face*

    Yup, quite literally in the middle of nowhere. And we got them kinda first. Feels... wrong :p 

    Mmmm, I dunno, I think I can live with it considering how much better it is than the usual fare (and the horror show that previous Cyberverse toys have been).

    Saw some bot bots in kmart today, which is the first time I've seen them in Aus I think.

    Also, when do we think the new wave of ss figures will show up?

    You wouldn't be talking about Morayfield, would you? 'Cause I only check once a week, on Thursdays. Which is why today I saw this lot:

    20200206_143908.jpg

    They had two of each, save Bumblebee. Only reason I even noticed they were new was the Build-a-bot thing - I've no interest in the figures.

    Given said disinterest, I also put that Bumblebee on the right in the frame. I dunno what it is or if it's new, but I don't recall seeing it previously. Not that I've looked, so maybe it's old news.

    Seriously, this place is a backwater. Even Tristram had serfs and a run-down old monastery (plus, y'know, the whole Lord of Terror thing). But for some reason, Transformers figures are showing up here really early.

    Knowing my luck, exactly the right person will start doing that... at Morayfield... so I can't get my hands on anything I actually want! Not that I'll be able to tell anyway, though, given the number of things that just don't get released over here, but still...

    Yeah. They had two left on the shelf today (a Megatron at the front, didn't check the other), but nothing else new around them.

    All credit to @JJJ, though - they did spot them before I did at a different KMart. Just didn't take a picture.
