Some exciting sightings for Australian fans! Via Ozformers we can report that the Transformers Golden Lagoon Starscream And Autobot 03-pack (Perceptor, Beachcomber, Seaspray) & Masterpiece Shadow Panther have made their way into Australian retail.
Ozformers member Miles_Prower was lucky to find these former Takara Tomy Mall exclusive golden chrome figures at Mr Toys Toyworld in South East Queensland. These stores are located only on this area, but since they are part of Toyworld, you could expect them to appear in other Toyworld stores over Australia or their website.
You can get the shiny Golden Lagoon Autobot 3-pack for $129 AUD (&92.52) which is a nice price. Golden Lagoon Starscream is priced $80 AUD ($57.38) which is quite expensive for a Deluxe but still affordable compared to aftermarket prices.
Masterpiece Shadow Panther is kind of unexpected. Originally planned to be released as a Toys”R”Us Australia exclusive, it had to be cancelled due to this retailer shut down in Australia. The black repaint of Masterpiece Cheetor could arrive to Australian shelves anyway, but with a price tag of $129 AUD ($92.52). This is $19 AUD ($13.63) more than the original Toys”R”US pre-order, but still affordable compared to the online market at the moment.
Happy hunting to all Australian fans!
