    Per a suggestion from OzFormers, I can confirm SS56 Shockwave is on shelves at BigW. Sighted at North Lakes:

    Also about a half-dozen Sky Lynxes at Myer North Lakes for anyone still chasing. Not pictured, but the website had them listed as $120 when they were still up there (have since been removed). A lot of Astrotrains scattered about, too, though I don't recall where exactly - some Earthrise packaging, some Siege.

    There was also an SS86 Jazz at North Lakes' BigW, but he came home with me. No other such sightings.

    I've seen waves 1 in voyager and deluxe, with some spoiler Magnus for good measure. I believe I missed wave 2 deluxe's debut because I wasn't really sure what was and wasn't wave 2 (can only really confirm an Elita and Impactor as of last week, but I think someone saw at least Wheeljack a few weeks back), and of wave 2 voyager I've so far only seen a couple Primes (at least, I think I saw them... the more I think about it the less I'm sure). No sighting of Soundwave or Nemesis.

    hmm seems u guys are having trouble as well. At least in your area wave 1 Netflix has fully released. I've visited 5 kmarts in my area multiple times now and not a single Netflix figure has been there. In fact the only things that have been on the shelves for a month have been cyberverse 1 step crap. You'd think I would try find them online, from what i could find you could pay $120 on Amazon to get em or pay like $55-$150 bucks on ebay. Man all I want is bb, Prime and Sound wave.

    Yep, that's what Big W Mildura looked like before Christmas. And most of them are still there. Which is a real bugger, because the staff won't put out any new stock with the things there...

    Clearly Big W's buyer doesn't know his subject matter. Probably just another MBA who thinks all toys are fungible.

    Could be they got some sort of bulk deal on old stock. That's how I got my Trypticon and Devastator - just a wall of them in the Entertainment section, well and truly after both lines had finished (was near the end of PotP). Of course they're big boxes so "wall" wasn't really that many units, but it still filled the shelf they had.

    So found Kingdom Optimus Primal at Mr Toys Toyworld Queen st Mall, Brisbane. There was only one Kingdom figure, which I bought. But must mean they are out or soon to be.

    Aha, Griffin was wondering just yesterday over on Ozformers about how nobody had seen any Kingdom stuff on shelves yet (he appears to have been told by Hasbro that it is very much on the way).

    Not a sighting... Wesfarmers set to close a bunch of Target stores in 2021. Most in regional towns. Some converted to Kmart.

    Mr Toys Browns Plains has received Kingdom wave 1 but I was a day too late going in as they have sold out Deluxe, Voyager and Leader Megatron. Only reissue Leader Optimus and the Core figures left.
