Apologies Sylie Steve... I just checked my bank and my credit card is MAXED out. Dudes! Honestly if some of you guys have the cash - this is like the best TF sale I've been in 2 years here in NZ.

If I knew it was going to be this good I would have saved and spread it out for you guys! So gutted... I so want to go back. Just need to get my Hun Gurr...

Probably a stupid question, but it doesn't hurt to ask . Is the ruination set $25 in total or per deluxe figure?
Doesn't hurt to dream ..

Sorry my bad, not a stupid question at all. My post was not clear and I have edited for more clarity. Each deluxe (Generations) figure is $25 NZD.

DAMN. I'm supposed to be asleep, can't get to the sale at all.

Would anybody be nice enough to pick me up a Legion Hun Gurrr? He is quite literally the only one I am after. I'd pay full price and cover the shipping of course.

The Ruination figures are present? How odd. They weren't scheduled for a release here. Must've been some overstock from Australia.

Shame no Hun-Grr's around. Can't make it there myself but sounds like it's been a good year for TF's there!

Yeah they had a good selection. The ruination molds look fantastic. I picked up beast hunter star scream, knockout and a couple of jet vehicons. Knock outs crocodile mode is impossible to pass up.

They also had the bh arcee and vertebreak. Heaps of ahockwave's wave and those new custom kreons

I was surprised to see Warehouse Albany actually had some new items for a change. Amongst them include Beast Hunters Sharkticon Megatron and two Shockwaves. Anyone wanting Shockwaves, there's your chance.

Also noticed the Kreo Transformers Custom series on the other end of the Lego aisle. Really neat kits of the usual bunch of characters like Prime, Megatron, Starscream, Bumblebee bundled with a bunch of accessories. However they are a bit odd in that they have all gone Destro and have silver chrome helmets. There seems to be more printed details on the body parts than the standard Kreons. Plus there are also bonus transparent 'armour' parts that are almost enough for a second Kreon. Just missing a head and crotch piece.

Sorry Soak314, I tried to secure you one. Unfortunately there was 2x per case and I didn't want to push the staff. Currently stock on sale was for clearance items and wave 3 and 5 of the legions (which contain Hun-Gurr) was not on clearance.

I can confirm and tell you that it is just a matter of time before it comes out.

Some day, neo-Abominus, someday.
