    Pretty much what I thought when I saw him. I was excited, but also frustrated.

    I'll just probably add the whole first wave to the TFSource pile, then sell off Cog.

    Think the rules are 'in stock and in an australia-based store (online or physical).

    Got a tip off Siege Deluxe wave 2 have been sighted. Off to see in the wild......


    That's better than Target or Myer. It's at the discretion of the store manager or toy department leader.

    Word of advice as someone who works for Target; show them the toy price match policy online. Some stores THINK its up to the manager's discretion, but they can actually get in trouble for that.

    Bought Siege Six-gun from target at Warringah mall and Ironhide from toymate at Warriewood yesterday. Target has wave 2 micromasters and battle masters like the rest of Aus, along with the chromia wave of deluxes and soundwave voyagers. Toymate has the same but also wave 1 leaders and a mix of wave1 + 2 deluxes.

    Saw Soundwave and Starscream at K-mart Kardinya (WA). Haven't seen any other Siege stock throughout Perth though whether it be Big W, Target, Kmart or even Myers.

    Looking at each of those places online doesn't even seem to indicate that the Siege stuff has even come their way yet (but i think their online store tends to be a bit behind).

    Both websites haven't fully confirmed Starscream will have a pin. Not saying Hasbro won't do it, but we don't know if it's official or just a fan conversion.

    They jumped on a news story without much evidence.

    Nothing to apologise over. Was just pointing out a little-known fallacy.

    Looks like the Kmart online site is now updating for siege. Based on the images used, i believe its the first wave. Prices arent too bad; $9 for battle masters, $29 for Deluxes and the usual $49 for Voyagers.

    Based on some of the online prices i almost got them at, i actually am glad i waited.

    I wouldnt be surprised if Target has the Deluxes into the $30s.

    RescueBots Mega Mighties wave 1 Bumblebee and HotShot at BigW Highpoint (VIC) $39. :eek:  (that’s almost twice the price of Toyworld $20).

    This may sound odd, but apparently there have been reports of TLK deluxes showing up at Coles for $12 (according to the TCCA group on Facebook). There are multiple reports, and it seems to be an assortment of Wave 3 Bee, Drift and Cogman.

    Wanted to get this up before tomorrow, before everyone cries 'bullshit' due to April Fools.

    Big W has TF5 Turbo Changer on clearance $8 (save $8).

    Also Cyberverse 1-step $15 (save $4). Sale from March 28 to April 10.


    This is confirmed. My local Coles also had Strafe and Berserker. Randomly located at an end cap of the shelf aisle.

    Too bad none of my coles in my area stock toys, because they just don't sell well.

    Guess I'll grab the Studio Series Cogman instead. It's probably better that way anyway.
