    I just found Tuner Mudflap and Dirge in Big W. They only had one of each, so I picked up both. I don't know if they had more in another section, but I searched the entire toy area and also the front of the store to see if they had something set up. I couldn't believe it, I didn't think we would get them yet. They didn't even have any other deluxes except for one sole Gears. Perhaps they were just putting them out. But yeah, wow.

    Also, Target has a Wheelie/Sideways 2 pack. WTF? I haven't heard of that.

    Aye. All 3 ROTF Leader class figures are $49.95 at TRU at the moment. Picked up Megatron yesterday, just because it was a bargain (for Australia anyway).

    BTW, anyone else beside davieanix find Dirge yet?

    Unfortunately, the only two kmarts in Canberra are worthless when it comes to deluxe and voyager figures. They get the legends and other gimmicky figures in readily, but new deluxes/voyagers don't show up in the ACT until weeks, even months after they are sited elsewhere in the country (they've never gotten in the Icecream Twins for example).

    BigW is marginally better, but still hit and miss.

    Nah. Tried both already. Called around yesterday and today. Dirge has yet to appear anywhere in Canberra. The BigW in Civic got 2 Tuner Mudflaps, but no Dirge.

    Just found this on 4chan's /toy/ board. Not sure if poster 'KillinSpoon' is a member here or not, apologies for jumping the gun if you are, but...

    "Loose ball joints.
    What's the best way to fix them?

    Also, on a side note, I saw a few Voyager Bludgeons at a BigW today, didn't pick one up because I was there to grab a christmas layby. (Victoria, Australia)"

    Let the hunt begin.

    Hey man,

    A friend of mine told me to use Clear Nail polish/varnish a couple of coats on a ball joint after it has all dried up it will give it some added thickness with layers expanding it slightly to fill the ball joint. I've tried it on a couple of my figures works a treat !

    Hope it works out.

    Sorry, note the Parenthesis in my last post. I was just quoting someone else's post from another site, primarily the bit about ROTF Bludgeon being found in Melbourne (loose joint questions belong elsewhere in the forum, but thanks anyway).

    RotF Legends 2-packs found at Target Knox City. Bumblebee/Shadow Striker (Wheelie repaint), Smokescreen (Hot Rod repaint)/Starscream and Skids/Mudflap. Unfortunately the toy section was in shambles post-Christmas and I couldn't find a price for them.

    Hi All,

    I’m parting with some of my TF’s just to have a clear out. I’m not putting these on ebay or anything related for a while yet.

    I'm posting this here to be relevant to people in my vicinity.

    I don’t need to cash just the space and for a fair few of these I’m not expecting mega returns or anything like that.

    It’s preferable that you live in Asia to reduce shipping costs (I’ll be mailing them personally) but whatever works works.

    I’ve organized the below according to status namely MISB, MIB, Loose etc.

    Please feel free to ask any questions related to this. This is my first time doing this so I appreciate that there will be some trepidation in buying from a relative unknown but I can assure you I’m for real and for anyone interested in buying I’d be happy to talk via phone or whatever makes you feel I’m for real.

    I’m not putting any expected prices on here, just make me an offer and if it’s reasonable it yours.

    MISB

    Armada Demolishor (pre-formatted)
    Armada Demolishor (post-formatted)
    Universe SE Overkill
    Universe SE DragStrip
    Armada Blurr
    ROTF Leader Megatron

    MIB or Mint & Reboxed

    Energon Optimus Prime
    Energon Megatron (missing the missile)
    Energon Tidal Wave (Japanese Transparent version)
    Armada Scavenger
    Armada Hotshot
    Armada Red Alert
    Armada Sideswipe
    Armada Thrust
    Armada Megatron
    Armada Prime, Jetfire, Overload (Jet fire is loose and missing minicon)
    BW2 Lio Convoy & Galvatron
    Universe DepthCharge (shark gun missing tail)

    Loose but complete

    Armada Thundercracker
    ROTF Blazmaster
    ROTF Breakaway
    ROTF Voyager Ratchet
    ROTF Voyager Prime
    ROTF Voyager Megatron
    ROTF Autobot Whirl
    Movie 1 Leader Desert Brawl

    Apart from Whirl & Thunder all have bio cards available.

    Hey Grimlock King,

    Buster Prime is plentiful over here in Hong Kong and around 1/2 of the price you've quoted. If you're interested in this lemme know via PM.
