Work during the week in the city (Kmart out in Porirua), so won't be able to get out there until say Thurs. If it's still there, I'll pick it up for you.

Interesting how the North Island always seems to get all the new stock. I might see if my Kmart can bring me in Shock and Cliff from that Kmart so I can get it cheap..

It's easy to say that, but I'll have you know that apart from some stuff at Kmart, there's bugger all new stuff in Wellington. It's not as wonderful as you may think.

Well, still nothing new at Farmers Cuba, their selection is really crap, but checked Farmers Lambton Quay today. Looking much better there.

1 each of E Unicron, Ironhide (wait, this gets better), Prowl, Downshift, Towline, Demolisher, Mirage, Shockblast, Skyblast, and that's all I can remember for now. That was about it. They've also realigned their prices to be more like The Warehouse ones. $16.95 basics, $24.95 deluxes (I think),and $44.95 megas.

Hmmm, they have restocked at least. There should be a Cliffjumper in with that lot somewhere too. I'd hope they have a Slugslinger, since he's kinda cool and want to get that

All that Farmers Lambton Quay stuff is still there, plus a Strongarm.

Still 4 missing deluxes from that case...
