    How much exactly do you pay for shipping, though? I limit myself to 20 bucks, anything over that's a bit much

    Ah yeah, then probably not worth it if you don't order other stuff. Typically, for shipping I pay between $25 for smaller orders and $50 for a decent sized box. You need to account for the cheaper cost of the figure (not always with Transformers, but other stuff), the shipping and GST. If you're not ordering at least 3 different things, some of which will have their prices jacked up from non-Japanese stores (Mafex, Figma, most SHF, Nendoroids, hobby goods, a lot of anime merch), I'd recommend against it.

    Looking closely it's telling me that they have sent the order to their warehouse for processing and they will get in touch 'if any unforeseen issues do arise with your order'. It's shipping using Australia post. And they gave me a reference number and tracking link.

    Looks like the newer Legacy figures at BigW are moving North. Found them in Morayfield today - two cases of Voyagers, and possibly the others (though I'll admit I don't care for them so didn't look).

    Just checked something on a whim, and it looks like the SS-112 Optimus page on Amazon is now gone completely - just a "page not found" error. Not sure how long it's been like that, or if this is better or worse than showing as Play-doh.

    My order's still there but they're really pushing it in terms of consumer confidence. Guess we might find out something in a week or two (lists a June 1 release, June 5-6 ETA).

    Big W Mildura has three Magmatrons too this weekend (will be interesting to see if they move out here), plus they've got new Earthspark stock in (deluxe Prime and Shockers, no sign of the Grimbos or Nightshades other places have had). And still no Legacy United wave 3 deluxes as yet.

    JB HiFi (Watergardens VIC) had 2x Origins Wheeljack. A restock perhaps?

    Big W's website updated this morning.
    Toy sale coming on June 11
    https://www.bigw.com.au/toy-sale-2024

    I found them at Big W in Watergardens/Taylors Lakes the day they first started popping up. but the were all gone after only a few days apparently.
    I wouldn't be surprised if they were meant to be toy sale stock and were taken back off the shelves until then.

    The sightings I've read seem to indicate that most stores have only been putting out one case for the most part (both the new voyagers and the new deluxes). Maybe Big W just doesn't have much stock of them at this point.
