    Funnily enough, these are supposed to be coming out again in Australia in August 2012, so I would stay away from buying these at huge prices (aka up to $200 on ebay). o_O

    If we’re getting them, they will be everywhere soon enough.

    I will remain sceptical until I actually see them in store though, but considering the large amount of River’s Future Sonic Screwdrivers and the Master’s Sonic Lasers currently sitting on Australians shelves, I would say this release is likely.
