Try getting a Farmers mailer and taking it to The Warehouse. They have a price promise where they'll better a price by 10%! It worked for me.

Thanks for the tip-off! I had just convinced myself that Takara's version was the one for me, but I'm happy to say that the Hasbro version does the job.

Seeing as Alpha Trion and Astrotrain have started popping up at Warehouses, just wanted to point out that today is the last day for $35 Voyagers at Farmers, which The Warehouse will price match.

Interesting, Warehouse have a sale on Transformers for buy one get one half price.

Today only for online purchases only they will knock another 13% off the discount for Friday 13th.

So 2 x Deluxes = $45.67, 2 x Voyagers = $71.77 I'd say those are probably the best pricing we've seen in awhile - roughly 35% discount.

Unfortunately when I tried to select 2 x leaders it refused saying no more than 1 allowed :-(

As a FYI, I once asked them how do I select a particular character when buying online; this was their reply: (Note that I didn't actually go through with the purchase so below process is untested for me)

"As this item is assorted we can't guarantee the one you want will be the one sent. However, if you place an order then call us on 0800 422 274 with the order number we can ask the online fulfilment centre to ship the one you want. This doesn't guarantee anything, but does give you a better chance of getting the one you want. Sorry for the inconvenience"

Toyco St Lukes Auckland:
Friday 28th - Sun 30th
You can get 25 / 30 / 50% off transformers (or other toys) using the coupons in the suburban newspapers eg: Central Leader. Can't use online sorry.
50% discount applies to items under $30 only so that restricts it to Legends and smaller.
I think Trypticon with 30% off now comes to $230 so that's about the cheapest I've seen him since release.

I'm heading in today...
