No idea to be honest, i think we should be, who are you looking for anyways i know a few locations still have a few of these, im a little annoyed and how fast these seem to be going and i dont think its because its popular or we wouldnt have alot of wave 1 lingering around, i think its because we are getting so little stock i guess they dont want to be stuck with the extra stock

I just like my $25 deluxes at Farmers. Still need Perceptor and Topspin. Wanted to get my kids some for Xmas too.

Oh well, the only one I really wanted was Sixshot, so I can just get the Takara version when that comes out.

Not really a big deal since Blitzwing and Octane are the versions I (and probably many others) want anyway.
Any word on Broadside, or are we skipping his wave too?

Turns out he's on Amazon for not much more than NZ voyager retail price shipped, so that's probably the best bet for anyone who wants him.

I wish I had gone down the Takara route with Broadside if only because it looks like the details are painted instead of silver foil stickers. I can already foresee them drying up and peeling off with age.

On a side note I'm wondering how the tiny Aerialbot planes included in the set passed muster with Hasbro's safety conscious toy standards committee. Especially considering the toy's intended audience. As an adult collector I love the attention to detail, but a very young child might see plane shaped mints.

i just got notified that toyworld NZ has received their shipment of trypticon and you can wait a few days for it to appear online or ring them up now to purchase.

Good tip-off Jimmy. Welcome to the boards!

Trypy looks fantastic. He's too big for my collection through!

Thanks!

I happen to be in Melbourne for a week and picked up Trypticon during the big w toy sale. Still expensive. No idea how I'm going to get it home without awkwardness. To make matters worse big w toys r us and Myer have epic wave 4 shipments.

Toyco at least online have fortress maximus on sale at the moment. But I don't want to be double broke.

Are we getting Leader Overlord? Just saw the in-hand pics and it looks so late 80's I could just die.
