Can anyone give this thread a shout if they see anything resembling waves 3, 4 or 5 of Siege in stores anywhere? I get the feeling our good buddies at Hasbro NZ have deprived us after wave 2 again.

We got Wave 4 of the Micromasters and Wave 3 of the Battle Masters in stores, and the Wave 3 and 4 Deluxes made it to Toyco some time ago, but they're long since out of stock (and not even listed on the website anymore) and there's been nothing Deluxe or above beyond Wave 2 on any shelves outside of possibly the Toyco store in Auckland.

There is nothing mate. Even Mighty Ape doesn't seem to have any.
We have been sidelined. I used Amazon.

Ah well thanks for checking, ya series 1 (the red bubble packaging) has the number in a different spot on the back while series 2 (green bubble packaging) will have it in the spot I mentioned.

Who knows why Petone Kmart randomly had a box of them if others don't? Makes no sense. Collecting stuff here really sucks.

Haa! Must've just missed 'em :P

Went for a browse around 6pm and saw nothing...unless they were in an unusual spot?

Deluxes starting to show up round our way now too. Just grabbed Hoist from Farmers. He was the only one I was really interested in this wave, maybe Wheeljack if I found him cheaper down the line.

Grapple looks awesome as, I hope to get him one day too but as he is the bigger class it gets a bit too pricey for me when I'm saving my moneys for Sky Lynx and Scorpy later in the year.

@Link were they at Queensgate?

Warehouse Lyall Bay has 1 Earthrise Starscream & 2 Grapples on shelf along with the new micromasters & Battlemasters.
Had them check the boxes up top for Deluxes but no dice.
Also Leader Studio Series DotM Megatron, Blackout & Grimlock with Voyager Longhaul, KSI Boss as well as Deluxe Dropkick, Heli Drift & Hightower.

Warehouse Tory Street has a single Earthrise Astrotrain left.
They've put the newer figures off to the adjacent shelf from their usual location :P

Ya was at Lower Hutt Farmers.

Still trying to convince myself to grab Grapple... then I remembered Snapdragon was coming soon too, already have him pre-ordered for later in the year haha, lousy budgeting for things getting in my way!

Maybe if Grapple is still around on shelves when a good sale comes along.

Cases of voyagers are packed 2 Grapples 1 Starscream, so if anyone if going to shelf warm odds are it'll be Grapple

So Toyworld Wellington is a bit of a catch-22: Impactor, Barricade and Mirage, but overpriced at 50 bucks a pop.

Petone Warehouse as the World's Smallest range. I picked up 2x Prime but they had plenty of them, including Starscream and Bee.

Only $10 a pop.

They also have all the latest Siege and Earthrise figure bar Soundwave (understandably)
