    Victorian Kmart stores are beginning to stock in Netflix War for Cybertron.

    I visited Chirnside Park Kmart this morning and found the staff filling the shelves.

    Deluxe wave 2.

    These two are longpacked, four of each on show, so hopefully there will be plenty of them for everybody to enjoy.
    Red Alert and Wheeljack seem to ship in smaller quantities and Impactor looks to be shortpacked. There was only 1 Impactor on show.

    Restock of Voyager wave 1.

    Equal quantities of each, just as last time they were stocked.

    And, lastly, the first Leader/Spoiler Box.

    Only two on show, but I'd be very surprised if there aren't more coming.

    Happy hunting, everyone!

    Ahhhhh. I went to my Kmart yesterday. Thanks for the info, good to know the numbers in which they are being supplied (I do indeed want only two of those deluxes :)  ).

    Indeed.

    I am in for the full set. :cool: 

    I passed on Siege Ultra Magnus, Red Alert, Wheeljack and Impactor, so these are almost all my first experience with the molds.

    Also, the novelty of casting the toys in gray plastic, then painting on their signature colours to give a unique, battle worn appearance, hasn't worn off yet, so in a lot of ways I prefer these to the Siege originals.

    I put mine on lay-buy, so I'll have to wait a little longer to play. But that's okay, just knowing they're here is enough for now. :)

    Score!

    Kmart Mildura had one each of Elita-1, Bumblebee, and shiny Megs. Still has multiple fake Skywarps Hotlinks, and the other Netflix deluxes.

    Kmart Mildura has at last done the big re-stock I've been expecting for a month or more now.

    Piles and piles of new Cyberverse stuff (including Thunderhowl!), along with all the Earthrise W2 deluxes, plus the voyagers (a pair of Snapdragons to go with a Starscream and Grapple). Once more the Arcees are either rare or very popular (there was one, which I grabbed).

    So, apart from Earthrise W3 (and who knows if it will turn up before January), that's me done for the year!

    Hey, is this the first sighting of a Thunderhowl in Australia? I've not seen mention of it previously.

    Has anyone heard when Kmart will be getting the Wave 2 Voyager figures?

    They already have them. I'm seeing Snapdragons everywhere now, Kmart, Target, even BigW.

    For anyone who missed out on him at BigW in the mid-year, or missed out in general, ER Sky Lynx looks to be available at Myer for $120, at least until their Click Frenzy ends Thursday (12/11). Regular price $150. There doesn't appear to be a corresponding eBay listing (did they end that?).

    Hopefully something similar comes along for those of us who missed Scorponok... kinda feel like I goofed with that one.

    Ah. There has been some speculation over at Ozformers that they won't appear until all the previous voyagers (Megs and fake Skywarp Hotlink) have shifted, and apparently they aren't moving much yet.

    What's the nicest way to ask the mods to change the thread title to "Australian Transformers Sightings"? The typo is doing my head in :confused:

    Hmm. I have a real love/hate relationship with that Hotlink. I bought the Megs though to help the effort ;)

    I bought one because it is near enough to Skywarp's deco, and who knows if it will ever be possible to obtain a real Siege Skywarp here? Even with it apparently coming to Japan (Takara Tomy mall?) some time in the future it still won't be much easier to acquire. Presumably will be a lot cheaper, but probably still too much.

    Were you charged an extra Foreign Conversion Fee by your Credit Card company outside of the price? I'm looking at getting the Paradron 2 pack from Amazon US.

    Yeah I was, the exact charge will vary depending on what bank you're with so you'll have to check with them if you want specifics. I'm with commbank and its 3%.

    Should only be a few dollars maximum though, still definitely the cheapest way to get the set

    Which Thunderhowl did you find?
    The Ultra sized Thunderhowl started showing up at the beginning of October.
    The Deluxe sized Thunderhowl is brand new for Australia, and if you found that one (with Maccadam's head), that would have been the first reported sighting (10 days before I saw a posted sighting on an Australian site).

    Deluxe, with the nifty internal sword storage trick :)  Naturally there was only one, and the other two places that stock Transformers here haven't had any yet. Anyone know the how the case assortment works? Kinda bonkers that it turns up here in Mildura before the capitals (or Morayfield :p  )

    Deluxe-class Thunderhowl is in stock at both Kmart and Target in Chirnside Park.

    Both stores had three of him in stock yesterday (Thursday 19th of November.)
    Arcee seems to be one per case, this wave. I can't confidently break down the remainder of the wave, but my best guess is 1x Grimlock, 1x Hot Rod, 1x Megatron and 1x Shockwave.

    I bought two Thunderhowl from Kmart.

    Pretty impressive timing. We got Arcee as soon as Victoria came out of lockdown, now a scant few weeks later we've got Thunderhowl.

    I got my Arcee (from my local shelves) back in early September; I make it 10 weeks.
