    The Golden Disk stuff? No idea, sorry. Theoretically they could get it (being exclusive to Amazon in the US), but I wouldn't take a chance on Amazon if I were you. My advice would be to keep an eye out at Asian retailers who do mail order (The Falcon's Hangar and Robot Kingdom are who I would use; ask around for other, perhaps better, options - I know the name Oh My Primus, for example, but nothing else about them), and grab one as soon as it appears. That's what I'm going to do for Jackpot.

    There are sightings over on Ozformers of Agent Ravage at Mighty Ape. Figure there might be one or two people here interested in it...

    Oof that price is hefty. Unfortunately its the only place I've seen it in Aus so far so I'll go with it. Thanks for the heads-up.

    Just thought I would note that Kmart Mildura now has 39 of those blasted Bumblebee and Spike packs on the shelves.

    Who do they imagine is going to buy them when the original stock from however long ago it was is still there within those 39?

    Just got in 2 SS86 Gnaw figures from Amazon US. As usual very poor packaging...simple white envelope with no padding. Luckily not a in box collector though the damage wasn't too bad. One of the boxes had been slightly crushed at the top and the other was actually in pretty good condition considering.

    I'm going to skip the Golden Disk Collection. Not really interested in any of the 4 sets.

    Has anyone found any listings for Pipes and Slammer here in Australia? Only ones I have seen are at Bulletproof Villain

    Transformers War for Cybertron: Kingdom Deluxe Pipes | Bulletproof Villain
    Transformers War for Cybertron: Kingdom Deluxe Slammer | Bulletproof Villain

    Getting sick of preorders right now though watching the release date come and go and then having it pushed back another month.

    And I think I've figured out why they aren't available.

    In that shitter stream thing yesterday where they revelead Kingdom Blaster, Hasbro made it clear that there would be no pre-ordering of the Kingdom Wave 5 toys; they would be on shelves (physical and online) in January and that's it. So I guess this means, if Pipes and Slammer are indeed Wave 5, that nobody will have stock, or be (officially) allowed to sell them in advance, before next year.

    If that's so, then I think (apart from the Artfire and Sideswipe toys I have on order) there's nothing left for me to buy from Hasbro for a few months now.

    Yes and no. Kingdom Blaster will probably be painful, but Legacy Blaster should be everywhere like Inferno is right now :)
