I just managed to score Ironhide and Prowl off Amazon (instock not preorders). Cheaper than toyworld but not as cheap as they’ll be when they finally reach the Warehouse

I saw siege SS and Soundwave hunters corner Kmart $49.00.
I haven't bought any so was just wondering if this price is high?

Cheapest I've seen 'em on shelves without being on sale. Usually $55 - $60

If you're wanting a Starscream I can sell you one for better.

Toyworld Manukau has Siege Jetfire $150.00
Also had Studio series DOTM Megatron and Optimus for $99.99
Megatron looked cool. Optimus has a trailer that turns into the circle loop weapons platform and the jet pack.

They also had the cyberverse Gnaw which looks very ‘86 movie like.

For some strange reason Moonracer and some of the Dinobots (Sludge and Snarl) from Power of the Primes are in stock at Farmers Botany Downs. Did they find a shipment somewhere?

So I’ve been to a couple of Toyworlds and they have voyagers, leaders and battle masters but no deluxes.
Also have seen studio series Megatron and mixmaster at the warehouses around here.
Mixmaster is such a mess.
Studio series Megatron looks to be painted really well

Have had trouble getting the boards to load lately so haven't been able to post the sightings.

All of the Netflix figures were at Manukau Warehouse. Enough that I managed to get Scrapface completely together. Its a bit of a chunk to throw down but only owning one would be so pointless. The camera mode is very good.

I also grabbed the Tank Megatron. See zero difference to what was the standard release. Other than we never seemed to get him. but...

Thundercrackers galore at The Warehouse. Maix, Takanini, Botany. Also seen Megatron but no Optimus Primes. Though I stopped looking because...

Out of nowhere, Commander Sky Lynx. Grabbed him. Probably shouldn't have but I had a warehouse gift card so decided to use it. Its a really great figure but you know what? I don't feel that its $159 great. I love it but that price doesn't feel right.

I saw Jetfire still at Toyworld Botany Downs for the same price and I feel that Skylynx is a better product than that one.

This is interesting. I thought the Netflix figures were K-Mart exclusives. Thanks for the info.
