Default Australian TRU computers uncover more reissues?

I'm not sure if this has been reported here.

New reissues?

I would be mildly surprised if that list is correct and Sunstreaker really is planned for reissue.

Hmmm....

Well, considering Dirge hit with Rodimus Prime (or does hit with Rodimus Prime?) at TRU, the likelihood of Thrust and Ramjet being reissued is at least 50%.

By the same token, Sideswipe was a reissue in the TF Collection series and is pretty much the same mold as Red Alert (there may be one or two modifications for all I know). So the chances are, since RA was reissued, that there's about a 50% chance for Sideswipe, too.

But I'm a little sceptical on the others. I mean... Sunstreaker I could understand. Maybe even Trailbreaker; considering Hoist got another go-round. But knowing that fans opinions of Ironhide are not exactly on the positive side, isn't that a bit of a dumb move?

The price quoted for Omega Supreme was most likely in Australian dollars. Converted to USD, it'd be about $90. Still ridiculously expensive, bt not as much.

And let's not forget that Armada/Energon Unicron sold at pretty much the same price at first.

Hmmm ... Damn Australian Prices .. damn Unicron when it came out was $160 AU ... I was pissed. Still haven't got one, i'm waiting for Energon Unicron to make an appearance.

Rather though, Energon Waves 1 and 2 came out at the same damn time. My wallet was hurting bad ....

eh? $AU160 for AR Unicron? faaaaark that..... I paid $AU112 for mine the day my local target put him on the shelf

Interesting they're putting EN Omega at that price point, although TRU Australia is actually one of the cheapest places to get Energon stuff, yet their armada stuff is still ridiculously expensive...

I kinda figured it would be the other way around, since Armada is over and done with, and most stores would want to clear out their Armada stock.

Australian Prices = Dodgy

They think that now the show has ended (re-runs still going over and over and again) that people will still buy them. they have rare items so they think the supply is less and the demand is greater, creating the effect they think they can chnage more.

I saw Armada Unicron for $160 at Target ... my jaw dropped to the ground as I walked away crying ...

Plus the other day I had JUST saw them stoxking up or re-stocking the TF section, and they had put some Altenator Sideswipes ... Smokescreen and Sidewipe have been relaesd almost 6 months aprt from each other ... I got my Smokescreen the day it hit the selves, which was back in January if I remember ...

I wish they'd clear their AR stock out @ much cheaper rates - I'd be getting myself AR Tidalwave & Overload if that was the case

And I don't get that tempy - I'm in Queensland & the Targets up here all have Unicron for around the $AU140 mark or so... never seen him any higher :/ I would've thought Target prices would've been the same, Australia wide...

hmm... maybe its worth the trip to am american TRU and become good friends with the girl behind the computer terminal

I dont think Omega Supreme would be Introduced at a price greater then Unicron.. i paid 47.95 for Ar Uni i think.. it just depends on what Omega looks like in my hands...

Hopefully target will be closeing out some more of the older TF's i noticed when i was there the other day they had the 20th anni prime reduced but they had already pulled the tag down when i seen it..too bad i had to have it when it first came out... of course i have a friend who spent the last 6 weeks in Japan and didnt much if any Transformers in teh area he stayed..

When Unicron first came out in the Armada series they were $49.99. I know because I got the first box that came through Toys R Us, and paid $105. Of course now, with the Energon figures in stock, they are all down to $39.99 and the Armada version is down to $29.99. Tidal Wave is down to $14.99, Super Base Optimus Prime (both versions) are down to $19.99. I even ventured to a Kmart where they had 2 full boxes of Deluxe figure Armada pieces, and they were all being sold for $5 each. I think I got 9 of them that day. It depends on where you go, and the time you get there. You basically have to get lucky.

Plus that list is for Australia. It may not be the same for the states. But hopefully it will be. I lost my Sunstreaker a long time ago, and I'd love to get it back. I'm not too concerned about Omega Taco Supreme (lol) . We'll see what it pans out to be.
