Same size... Much cheaper plastic though, so be careful.

At one I saw here in Chch, they were down the aisle with the hotwheels etc... Another they were far away, in one of those middle tables that aren't down an aisle.

It differs from Warehouse to Warehouse. The ones I've been to in Auckland don't seem to have them in stock. Either that, or I'm not looking in the right aisles.

I'd certainly like to grab a Devestator and Bruticus if I could. I doubt I could replace my long lost Computron this way though.

Been up in Napier for my bros wedding last few days, found a little asian shop in Marine Parade which had 3 BT* Red Alerts, a BT Laserwave, BT Ravage and BT Wheeljack. I thought that was quite cool since I don't think they were actually released here.

I thought I better update the Hawke's Bay region.
Animated has obviously come out here everywhere and wave 2?? I think it is has just arrived in Farmers
So thats Soundwave, Jazz, Snarl and Oil Slick. Now he hasn't been in the cartoon yet has he?
Universe is still yet to arrive

Right Universe has hit the Bay
Tankor, Sunstreaker, Acid Storm, Prowl, Galvatron, Onslaught and Powerglide have all come into Farmers but I didn't see any price tags so not sure on prices.
That Bumblebee 3 pack is also in as well

Farmers Napier had a Universe Onslaught for $50 and Animated Prowl and Ratchet for $20 each, other than those 'specials' everything else was pretty typical for a farmers

Classics Silverbolt is still at Warehouse Napier for $34.99. Is he worth getting for that price.
Also at Warehouse is 2xMindswipe, 1xBlugdeon, 2xDirge. I saw a Beachcomber and I think payload double pack which I have never seen before. Does any one know if I can get Beachcomber by himself or would I have to get the double pack for $34.99. No HFTD of Generations yet
At Toyworld Napier Generations wave 1 is there for $34.99 and also HFTD Voyagers for $59.99. Man pretty expensive

Beachy doesn't come by himself, but there are scout class releases of the same mould individually.

Oh! ROTF Dirge. I'd be keen if you can get me one (or both)
And Generations Wave 1 .. $35 is good for Toyworld. Local wants $40 (when they had them)

You mean the Universe Ultra? In my opinion yes. But do read some reviews. Some people dislike his simplicity but I dig it.

Yes very keen for both. Should be on special for about $20 each if I am not mistaken.
Anymore Generations available at that price as well, keen on Thrust and or Drift if you can secure
