classsics 2 packs: TW, farmers

Alts inc mirage: TW and farmers

Kmart had the new turtle figures, the lil ones are sweet looking, prolly gonna get those as they are only 4 bucks each.

farmers also had cybertron cryo-scourge and menasaur for 30 each.

I am seriously considering moving to a town that has a life.
Rang the harehouse today to find out if they were going to be actually putting any TF movie toys out on saturday for sale, chap i spoke to said they arent allowed to put them out till saurday, but they havent received any stock yet..... awesome stuff.

So this then makes which party the more slacker: warehouse/their distributor/hasbro?

The Warehouse distributor. If they're anything like Farmers, they'll have a central distribution centre, where they ship stock to their various stores. As far as I know hasbro doesn't deliver store to store, except places like Toyworld perhaps, and even then they'd get special couriers to do it (seen courier guy dropping toys off to my local Toys R Fun before).

did the rounds tonight...
Farmers has nothing, and doesnt ven have the toys out teh back, the lady said maybe to try next week, useless twats. New rule avoid farmers like the plague.

Wlaked into toyworld at 7pm and they were just putting up the display, and had had the stack for over a week. Deluxes, voyagers and other stuff such as the cyber stomping and co. Grabbed me the Optimus helmet, i love this thing. 20% off so going in the am to grab some more. :D

Tw has as lissted above.
Warehouse has the stock as well, but also has optimash prime whereas tw doesnt. Even with the 20% discount at TW its still cheaper to pay full price at the warehouse for leader prime and th erobot heroes.

Anyone know what the haps is with Classics stuff around Palmy? I've been looking around and so far I've picked up a Jetfire and Bumblebee and I've seen a few Mirage's around. I'd love to get a Starscream but so far I haven't seen a damn one anywhere.

Curse this small town and its shitty stores!

Might be a Cliffjumper or Ramjet at Warehouse. Not sure exactly. Were some Starscreams there last week. Otherwise, you could head on over to Feilding and see what they have. It's only a quick drive, and sometimes they have stuff Palmy Warehouse doesn't.

decided to update this thread

Warehouse has stuff all afew classics

Kmart has stuff all afew Ratchets and protoforms

but....

Farmers on the other hand has plenty of Voyager Megatrons, Primes and a few of the FAB Frenzys
and about 3 or 4 leader Primes, aside from that they appear to have a nice assortment deluxe figures awell Jazz, Swindle, Brawl, Bonecrusher, 74 Bumblebee and even the odd Barracade.

i've brought most of my movie transformers from Farmers not only do they have the best prices in Palmy but they seem to have a better range aswell.
