    Literally stumbled across these whilst going to buy some paints (which I passed on in favour of the Battlemasters), and I quite honestly didn't realise they were wave 2 until AFTER I'd purchased them.

    EDIT: Probably should mention this was Hobbyco Sydney. I've heard they're at Rhodes too, but I can't back that up.

    *heaves a sigh because Australia is starting to get Wave 2 when I haven't even found all of Wave 1 yet*

    Hey,nice find,man. I'd love to see in-hand pictures of these two if you get the chance. Especially pictures of Deluxes or Scouts holding Pteraxadon.
    *winks*

    It's a legit toy store... and a legit sighting, as I had a photo sent to me last night of Aimless from someone else.

    The annoying thing is... we are so late getting Siege in Australia most stores will start off with wave 2 and we might not get much, or any of wave 1... which has happened here before. :(

    As Griffin just said, the reason for this is because most major stores appear to have entirely skipped Wave 1. So far Wave 1 only appeared for the first time a couple of weeks ago at Toyworld, which is an expensive toy store and nowhere else... and they didn't even stock the Leaders or Micromasters!

    Okay, so I don't have any photos yet, but I have to say...Pteraxadon is kind of shit.

    How come Pteraxadon is shit? Does his effect part work on Siege Optimus Prime? Curious.

    No it cannot. It can be used as a blast for other Battlemasters, but on not Lionizer.

    My main issues with Pteraxadon are the size of the wings/blades and the short handle. He doesn't feel like a proper axe.

    Also his Pteranadon mode has virtually no posability...come on Hasbro, when are we going to get a properly articulated version of this beast mode?!

    Made an edit on the previous post. Was supposed to write 'not on Lionizer'.
