    Just picked up Titanium Rodimus and Titanium Soundwave from Toyworld Capalaba (South Brisbane) for $39.99 each. They have one Titanium Rodimus left and 3 Soundwave as of 11:00am today (12th of Feb 07).

    Now that i have them in person I love me both - even Soundwave

    Found a set of UM Vs Skywarp as well, and bought it of course. Target Browns Plains still had about 3 there. Also had some of the leaders 2-pack as well.
    Plenty of Grimlocks at Toyworld Browns Plains. As Hasbro predicted (by short-packing them), these are already shelfwarming as the kiddies and parents go for the nice looking vehicles first.
    Still haven't found me a Jetfire yet :(

    Classics Ramjet and Cliffjumper have just been sighted at retail in Australia (BigW so far).
    So have Titanium CH RiD Optimus and WW Starscream, at TRU.

    Any clues as to which Big W store? Not all branches get their stuff in at the same time...

    OTCA member Paulbot found two of each at Big W Fountain Gate (Melbourne) and Sofaman found them at Big W Arndale (Adelaide), which would be no help for you since those are in other states.
    I've only checked out BigW at Garden City, and they didn't have any as of the 5th.

    Oh my... and I've got no money for two weeks >< well, apart from my credit card... but I can't afford to get anywhere ><

    Damn Supanova. Damn them and their attractive figures with high prices that LOOK like they're from shows I like but turn out to not be once i can see the box close up after sale... damn them... heh.

    But I did see a single Cliffjumper in David Jones yesterday, couldn't afford and still no sign of Ramjet in Big W's in the city or Morayfield.

    Edit: Mind you, if someone in Brisbane buys two, and doesn't mind selling one in two weeks, I'd be greatly appreciative!

    Edit 2: re-reading this... I mean the Soundwave, not Cliffy or Rammy.

    Couldn't see these posted anywhere else...

    Soundwave and Megatron Shirts

    Found at Myer Chermside for $30 a pop. They also had old school Gundam and Nintendo styled shirts as part of the 'Vintage Rags' range too.

    No one else had posted them, so I will... TRU Aspley in Brisbane has reissue Soundwave, $49. Got mine last night. Apart from some QA niggles (laserbeak won't transform flat, grrr, no sticker placement guide - but was he supposed to come with one? I went from the photo on the box...) and some bits of plastic flash here and there, I've quite liked him. Laserbeak disturbs me, though... I can't put Ravage in the front, because Laserbeak won't fit into the back and let me shut the compartment, only if he's in the front.
