    If it ever drops below $100, then I might consider getting it.

    It won't.

    In Canada Commanders are $120 CAD and I got my son's Jetfire on sale for $70 so maybe it will hit $100 or just below over there?

    Nope, won't ever happen.

    It is priced are $150, and we don't do clearances the way the US does. Stock here goes back to Hasbro, not to specialists who shift things cheap.

    BigW had Sky Lynx exclusively for a month or two last year, and opened with a sale, which is the best the price has ever been - was something like $120, maybe $125.

    Anyway, going to make a little scouting trip this morning ... probably won't be there, but you never know :)

    And now there's another reported sighting (over on Ozformers), at a different Big W (also in a Sydney suburb, this time McArthur Square).

    No sign of Roddy at Big W South Yarra. In fact, their small Transformers section is now exclusively Cyberverse.

    I don't know if this is the best place to post this but I made a preorder on GameStop a few weeks back and the other day they said he'd be coming in within a week or so and that they'd call me when they would let me pick it up. I don't know if that was true or he was just trying to hype me up to make a bigger purchase but seeing this post is interesting.
    The Gamestop app and website are acting up however, so I cant seem to check my preorders

    Wild speculation, putting together things I've read and possibly probably coming up with entirely the wrong conclusion...

    Perhaps with the supposed 5th wave of Kingdom (Blaster moving to Kingdom) it is possible, or even necessary, for Hasbro to re-work the release timetable and move some things forward.

    It's entirely possible it's coming. They've gotten figures early before. Kingdom Megatron, Primal, and Cyclonus to name a few.

    Do you think your GameStop rep was telling you the truth? I would like to get this guy soon.
