Was about to post that! Got a Highbrow for my son as a surprise tomorrow.

Guess that means he'll be getting the four.

Still nothing! Went today. Still some AOE stuff... pretty sad.

Meanwhile TWH in Lower Hutt has everything except the Titan Masters (or least I couldn't see them). Loads of Galvatron's. Really like the look of PM Prime. Was thinking about waiting for the Takara release but not sure how much that'll cost.

Was only Wave 2 deluxes and I relieved them of a Chromedome. Quite a nice little fun figure. Son loves it too. He wants Skullcruncher but I can't get that until Wave 1's show up at non-Toyworlds.

Gotta say, these are the best TF's I've seen in the mainlines for quite some time.

I was visiting Welly this weekend and I'm sure Tory St had Titan Masters at least.
They were up the top left, although behind RiD stuff.

Lots of titans returns in Paraparaumu. Seems like wave 1 and 2. Stacks of Galvatrons. Power master prime looks cool, as does Blaster. Farmers and Warehouse seemed to have different cases, although they both had Galvatron. For example Farmers has Blurr and Scourge, Warehouse had Blaster and Prime and Wheelie and Rewind.

Woohoo! Thanks. It is now mine and so a count of zero A3's in Petone.

Well there's practically no current mainline TFs on the store shelves in Wellington as of late Feb/early March

I've seen 1 Weirdwolf, 1 Hardhead, 1 Galvatron, a few Astrotrains, 1 Alpha Trion, and the odd tape. That's across Warehouse/Farmers.

So sad. There's a few RiD legends but who cares about those. I haven't been to Kmart in Porirua in a while so maybe they have something? The Warehouse in Petone doesn't even have a legitimate Transformers section now. Actually, Farmers in Queensgate is much the same. We found some RiD stuff below the Star Wars items and then a few on the top shelf.

Not a lot in Upper Hutt Farmers and Warehouse either.

They still wonder why we import?

Saw a lone Sharkticon and restocks of headmaster packs at Petone Warehouse a couple of days ago. The HM were Apeface, Brawn and Loudmouth. Not sure what wave that makes them?

My son wants a Brawn in the Sharkticon scale so hope that turns up soon.

Really surprised none of the RiD Warrior class figures haven't shown up despite nationwide reports of them.

Seen Legends Kickback, Sharkticon and Bee at Lower Hutt Toyworld along with a whole bunch of RID Deluxes. I think the RID's are new? But at $49.99 a piece I was too scared to even look at them long.

Kickback looked pretty good. Didn't think Hasbro would get around to doing all three!!

Saw the new Last Knight range of Toys a Farmers Queensgate.

They had Voyager Prime and Grimlock. Picked up Prime and very happy with this Voyager version. Much nicer than the AOE Leader.

Also there was the Deluxe Bee (Not as nice lookig as the AOE version, just lacked paint) Slash (Another repaint, I like this one but will only get it if Slash actually makes it into the movie this time), Berserker (Looked cool but after watching some review not sure on this one) and Barricade (Probably the pick of wave 1, think I will grab him soon).

Also they had One Step wave 1 (Which I think was Hound, Bee, Prime and Barricade), Turbo Changers (Grimlock, Bee and Prime) and Legion (Grimlock, Bee, Barricade, Prime). Role Play masks were present too.

Bit of a lackluster first wave to be honest but the Voyager Prime is well worth a pick up!

Whoa! Just had a look. Warms my heart seeing TF's with a prominent display. That Voyager Prime is great and would have come home with me but for the 1st time in my life I forgot my wallet at home, heh.
