Thanks to 2005 Boards member griffin-of-oz for reporting that Transformers: Studio Series Thundercracker and Masterpiece MPM-05 Barricade Are Out In Australia.
The information surfaced via user Caminus Prime in the Ozformers Boards. Both Studio Series Thundercracker and Masterpiece Movie Barricade have been found at Toys”R”Us in New South Wales. Thundercraker is priced 60 AUD ($44.30 approximately) and MPM-05 Barricade goes for 180 AUD ($ 132.90 approximately). To make things even better, these figures will automatically be discounted at Toys”R”Us, as Transformers are currently at 15% off.
This is indeed a nice surprise considering that Toys”R”Us Australia if closing all their stores within the next months. These toys must have been received, or bought, before the official notice was made of the business being closed up.
Happy hunting to all Australian fans!
