Put that wallet away. The starting bid is $47,000 AUD ($43,000 USD). Anywho, read on after the jump for more details and images.

Ive just picked up a Robot heroes 5 pack from ASDA [ed: a Wal Mart company] for £7. The set includes Optimus Prime, Megatron, Cliffjumper, Skywarp and a semi transparent Mirage and is packed in quite a nice little display box with cardboard buildings. Only problem is the big "£7" sticker is a bit tough to get off cleanly, so collectors beware! Post your UK sightings for others to see here
Looks like there is a new Generation KO making the rounds, eBay seller doufaceb has an ebay
auction up listing a "G1 Transformer Mirage MISB MOSC, Ghost Ver." Strange co-incidence this would appear when the e-Hobby Mirage is just arriving. Is this a one off in the stream of the high-grade KOs we have seen of late? We shall see. View the images of the Ghost Mirage KO in the image gallery

I was watching Robot Chicken on 5/21/2006 and thought I saw a Optimus Prime action figure. It was shown very quickly so this is not definite. It was in the skit where the creature comes out of the kid's nose and gets the cat to whack to kid's face.
Tonight I found the three new Star Wars Transformers at my Wal-mart in Las Vegas. They rang up as $14.97. Happy hunting! They look really good and the hard one to find is going to be the Obi-Wan Kenobi Jedi Starfighter (simply because he's the best looking one). They come 3 per case.
