Do I dare brave the mall...? :lol:

A few Cogmen at Farmers Westfield, I gather he was fairly sought-after due to suffering from new mold late wave syndrome where he shows up at like 3 stores worldwide.

Siege stuff at K-Mart Westfield. They had Hound, Sideswipe and I think Cog there when I left. Didn't check K-Mart The Palms, but there's probably stuff there too. They also had probably the complete Wave 1 Battle Masters, but no Micromasters, Voyagers or Leaders sadly.

Botbots at Warehouse Blenheim Road, although I could only find the 5-packs. They had a semi-decent selection of those however.

They have some Siege figures at Warehouse Blenheim Road. Mostly Starscream, Soundwave and Shockwave.

Some fairly new Studio Series stuff in addition to a whole bunch of Seige Wave 2s at K-Mart Riccarton, including Scrapmetal, the first part of Devastator among other things. No Barricade or WWII Bumblebee however.

Finally found Studio Series Barricade and WWII Bumblebee at the Warehouse Eastgate. They had a decent collection of their wave, including Sideswipe and a couple of others. Nothing exciting on the Siege front outside the now normal Wave 2 selections.

If anyone didn't manage to get their hands on Blot, Sinnertwin or Cutthroat I'm pretty sure all three are at Whitcouls the Palms. Blot was definitely there, but I'm pretty sure they had the whole wave, including the deMAGA'd Jazz.

Some new bootlegs at the dollar store on the right coming in from the underground carpark near the Pak'n Save end of Westfield Riccarton. They have a Knightmorpher Commander KO and a simplified version of what I think is supposed to be Classics Jetfire. $4 each. They also have a wide range of upscaled Legions toys from various lines, but I didn't check the cost of those.

Quality isn't great as expected, but they can transform without breaking. KM Commander doesn't come with his 'trailer' so the locomotive mode just sort of ends and he also can't fold his head away. Jetfire is better although once you de-extend his legs they won't stay extended and support his weight anymore, but it only makes him a bit squat rather than a write-off. They both come with a shield and what seems to be a gun based on one of the Combiner Wars Aerialbot guns.

Some new stock at Warehouse Barrington. The small Spark Armors Wave 2, Wave 4 of the Micromasters, including the new molds (the SUV and the Truck set) as well as a repack of the Wave 1 jets we never got, so if you're looking for those they had quite a few of them. Nothing else new.

Warehouse Blenheim Road have the new wave of studio series voyagers, so if anyone's after a long haul or KSI boss nows your chance. Deluxes weren't out yet but hopefully they aren't too far off
