    Damn it. There's absolutely no way my local Big W will be stocking leader or commander class toys, and they're the only things I want!

    What hoops are involved in buying from them online?

    Be sure to ask the staff to check the stockroom. Cause when CW Devastator was in the Toy sale back in 2015 they didn't put it out in the shelf but behind the lay-by area and stockroom. Same goes with MPM Barricade and Bumblebee last year. As for leader class, I wish you luck with that since it will be gone quick. For online, Skylynx you will have the chance but for leader is no since they are chosen at random.

    Okay, now that's something vitally important to know. Makes the whole thing pointless. :(

    The other vital thing to know is that online orders are filled with stock from the store shelves, not from a separate warehouse.

    That one time in 2018 when Big W had The Last Knight voyagers for only $5 I arrived at the store at opening - just in tine to watch staff clear the shelves of two shopping trolleys of voyagers.

    I asked what was going on & they told me online ordering opened an hour earlier and that all the stock in every store was already sold.

    If that can happen in an hour, what chance is there that any of those Studio Series or War for Cybertron Leaders are going to make it onto store shelves two days after online sales begin?

    That's a pretty decent amount of stock, too. Wonder if my Big W will get any?

    I dropped in yesterday on the way to somewhere else. None yet, but they have cleared out a lot of the old stock that has been sitting there for a while now (some of it for years). Looks almost as if they are preparing for an influx of new stock...

    That picture a few posts up would suggest otherwise.

    With big w online is there a way to buy specific figures, or can you only buy "assorted"?

    Only assorted since they say it's chosen at random. And they say to visit the store if you want a more specific one.
