The Last Knight Deluxe Wave 3 at Farmers Riccarton. The wave apparently consists of a new mold Bumblebee, Crosshairs and Strafe, though I only saw Strafe and he went home with me. I didn't look through the rest of the deluxes there other than my Strafe, so there may have been more.

Hello,

I found Misfire, Windblade and Twintwist at The Warehouse on Blenheim road. No new voyagers or leaders tho, Blaster has been shelfwarming there for weeks.

A couple of Windbaldes left there, and I also found a set of Nitro Zeus and Scorn, the latter of them going home with me. They had some Last Knight Wave 3 Deluxes (Strafe and Crosshairs) as well, though I didn't see a Bumblebee.

Cosmos and Seaspray showing up at Barrington Warehouse, alongside a wave seemingly consisting of Krok, Quake, Triggerhappy and Twinferno.

He may not be here. We apparently got a late wave that consisted of Krok, Quake, Twinferno and Triggerhappy instead of the wave he shipped in. We'll probably be lucky if we see him now.

That sucks about SlugSlinger, that was the last Titans Return toy I was after.

If anyone is still looking for Seaspray, Cosmos or Broadside I saw a few of each at Warehouse on Blenheim road

At least Broadside made it to the South Island.

Legions Dragonstorm at Farmers Westfield. They had 2 or 3 left after I'd bought mine. No sign of Hound there at all. They also had RID Legions Twinferno, but they only had the one who went home with me.

I was at Kmart/Farmers Riccarton earlier, Kmart had 0 Titans Return stock on the shelf and Farmers had one Galvatron and lot of empty space. Wonder if that means they are going to be rolling out Power of the Primes soon.

Despite reports of Power of the Primes wave 1 dropping in Warehouses across the North Island, both Blenheim Road and Hornby are littered with nothing but stagnating toys from waves and waves ago, not a single damned Prime in sight. I really want to support the local industry and not go the BBTS route, but going to the shops eager to buy new toys after somebody saw them elsewhere and finding nothing but old dust-laden tat is incredibly disheartening. Especially when there are that many sightings so close together, really makes you think that was the street date drop and that they'd be out everywhere.

Toy World Tower Junction has Power of the Primes Wave 1, they seem to have everything from Pretenders to Leaders. I didn't see the Deluxe prices, but Voyagers were $59.99 and Leaders were $99.99. Pretenders/Prime Masters were $9.99 I think, with Legends being $19.99 each.
