    To each their own. I kinda like the bot mode look (even though it's not anything special) and the extra play-ability his set provides for micro-masters/battle-masters as we've only gotten that from Omega Supreme from this line. He's more than what his G1 toy was at least.

    So K-mart finally put out their Grapples (which would have been in a case with the deluxes that went out on the shelves last week). No new Starscreams (there's still one last Siege Starscream on the shelf...). No leaders either, but then I've never seen a leader at K-mart.

    But I now know for sure that there's someone else in Mildura collecting these things. ALL the Earthrise deluxes I left behind last week (including 2 Ironworks) have gone. And oddly enough I had reason to return to K-mart this afternoon, and the Grapple I didn't buy had vanished in the intervening 2 1/2 hours...

    Finally saw Earthrise Starscream at Big W on the weekend (still a big NO). Was very surprised - Big W here has lagged behind by a good 6 months, and got in their first Siege stuff around August, I think.

    Other than Toyworlds and small collector shops I'm pretty sure all of Australia missed out on wave 1, it was just Megatron and whoever else got repacked later.

    Anyway I've seen Earthrise at most places now and Starscream seems to be the rarer one
    I share this stuff regularly on otca but Siege Amazon deals, $50 Galaxy Prime and $14 Chromia

    Interesting. I guess I’ll believe it once I see them actually delivered.

    Thanks for sharing, but to be posted as news, we prefer a proper in store sighting or in-hand images.

    Seems WFC:E voyagers and deluxes are starting to spread out - spotted them everywhere today. Still zero sign of any leaders, though...

    I did, however, spot these:

    20200319_145243.jpg

    Pretty sure this was in KMart (Morayfield). Packaging identifies them as Ultimate Class Energon Armo[ u ]r. They had two Primes and one Shockwave, $59 each. I don't recall having seen them before, but since they're Cyberverse I also can't say that I've been looking or paying much attention. So.... may or may not be new.

    I must have missed that news. Supposedly it’s planned for release at their mid-year sale. So hold tight during the Covid-19 lockdown period. :D
