    Thanks to a couple of Ozformers Members (Major_K and Christalcase), I was able to see for myself the new Mid-year TFs toys that have now hit retail here in Australia.

    Hasbro Australia told us at the AUS Toyfair that these toys were coming out in June, despite the US Hasbro saying the American release could be August, so I was skeptical that we would be seeing them here so early.

    But here they are - Power Core Combiners and Yellow Pack Figures (pics in the link)

    Power Core Combiners and Yellow-pack TFs now in AUS - Ozformers Transformers Collectors Australia

    On shelf were the 5-pack Combiners (Bombshock and Skyburst), Yellow-pack Scouts (Hubcap, Crankstart, Backfire, Brimstone), Yellow-pack Legends (Ravage, Rampage, Cyberfire Bumblebee, Fireburst Optimus).
    In the back were Yellow-pack Voyagers (Seaspray, Payload, Night Ops Ratchet) and apparently 2-pack Combiners, but these didn't have prices yet, so weren't available for sale today.

    Also now sighted in two other stores - one store even had the 2-packs out. So these are not just an isolated store now, these are definitely being fully released to stores here that have the space or demand for them.
    (gotta go find me some 2-packs)

    Why do I suddenly get the urge to laugh maniacally right now? Oh yeah, Australia's getting new awesome stuff before America. This should make up for the utter lack of Human Alliance toys in my area (has anyone seen 'em in Adelaide? At all?).

    MWA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA!!!

    Shit! That was meant to be urge, not large. How the fuck did I manage to fuck that up? I blame my overexcitedness at this piece of news.

    To be fair, I'm probably the last person to judge when it comes to typos and grammar gaffs. :p
