Decided to check Warehouse Blenheim Road since they tend to be better stocked than Barrington, but it's still nearly all old Cyberverse stock with the only War For Cybertron stock being old Battle and Micromaster sets from Siege and a Siege Starscream and Soundwave. No sign of Earthrise at all. They did however have the second wave of Digimon Tamagotchi 20th Anniversary pets, which I picked up a couple of. The improvements they have over the ones from 20 years ago are substantial, so if you're into that they're worth grabbing. Although there's not really any reason to grab more than one unless you already have a collection of 20th Anniversary Digimon pets since the only difference between them is the egg you can unlock, which requires connecting it to 5 other 20th anniversary pets. $40 each, which isn't too bad since you can raise two at a time on the one device.

Using the Warehouse App, it will tell you if a store has stock, saves running to the store to check
No stock in the South Island yet, and Leaders are non existent in the North

Leaders are non existent? Don’t rely on the app.
I’ve seen three astrotrains at three different warehouses now and one Optimus at one of them too.
They’re out there. Just deluxes aren’t.

There’s also weird little one that transforms into a ramp. Bet he shelf warms. And there’s a lot of the little guy as well.

^ Since that comment, leaders have since been removed from the app so stock levels can't be checked at all.

Finally some new stock. Farmers Westfield had a Grapple, a bunch of Micromasters (Bombshock and co. and Big Daddy and co.) and Battle Masters (the dude who turns into a ramp and the repacked Minotaur) and both Leaders, Optimus Prime and Astrotrain. No Deluxes of course. K-Mart had some Studio Series Megatron and Mixmasters if you're looking to complete your Devastator.

Just come back from Hornby and I've got some good news and I've got some bad news. The good news is we have Earthrise Deluxes out now, the bad news is they're at Toy World prices, $44.99 a pop. They were out of Cliffjumpers by the time I left, but they had several Hoists, an Ironworks and a Wheeljack still left. Warehouse had Earthrise Voyagers, Battlemasters and Micromasters, but no Deluxes. I didn't make it to Farmers because the fire alarm went off and the mall got evacuated.

Warehouse Rangiora has Cyberverse Deluxe Hot Rod. They had a Grimlock as well which I bought, and it is possible that they had a second Grimlock, I didn't see all that was there.

South City had a Studio Series DOTM Soundwave,Dropkick(Helicopter guy?) Earthrise Starscream and Grapple. Lots of different War for Cybertron ... Prime master? Mini bot ones with the weapon effects,some from earlier ranges (they're the same mini bots but without the effect add ons)... They look cool.

Cyberverse Megatron... I didn't really pay much attention to Cyberverse, lots of stuff, not things I was looking at. :P hahaha.

Warehouse Eastgate has a lot of new stuff in the toy sale section near the front of the store. Siege Megatron and Thundercracker, Studio Series Scavenger, ROTF Jetfire, Shockwave and DOTM Megatron. They also have a Sky Lynx tucked away high on the top shelf in the main section.

If anyone was looking at grabbing Cyberverse Scout Scraplet they have one at Barrington Warehouse in the pop-up toy section relatively near the door. I didn't go through all the ones on the main shelf so there may have been more there.

Earthrise Snapdragon at KMart Riccarton. He's apparently not in their system yet, so you'll need to get the checkout staff to help you, but there were very helpful to me when I got mine (they had two).

No Snapdragon in my local Kmart. :(

If anyone finds one in theirs can they grab him for me please, then I can cancel my Amazon pre-order and not have to pay heaps/wait ages to get him! He's a really special character to me so I'm extra hyped to have him. (D) Cheers.
