Went up there for a wedding and popped into Toyworld and Kmart. Pretty standard stuff, new deluxe case at Kmart, Sharky, Slug's etc.

I know this is 'against the rules :roll: ', given that it's not a 'new' figure, but the most interesting thing I saw at Toyworld was an Armada Optimus Prime... the big one ("Superpants Prime"). Original colouring too, not the Unicron battles one. Haven't seen one of these for a while. Hardly surprising they haven't sold it, they're still asking $129.95!

That'd be the Galaxy Defender Armada Megatron knockoff. It's oversized and quite extensively retooled, a rather nice figure and a bargain for $20. Don't knock it 'til you own it. :wink:

Thanks for the heads up. Does that mean that the other More dodgy looking robot things (hideously painted chrome) are also fairly reasonable? They look just plain nasty

They do a cool lookin train one that I was gonna buy for my boys birthday a couple of months back (he Loves trains and TF's) but they were all gone at Porirua. Do they have any of those?

That train guy is a knockoff of Might Gaine from Brave Express Might Gaine. The silly chrome mask actually comes off, it's covering up his smaller, cooler head. I have the actual toy, it's great.

The giant space shuttle is a knockoff of Granbird from Brave of the sun Fighbird. Huge, cool toy, but not really worth getting if you don't have Fighbird, as he's made to combine with him [but requires some modification to actually do it, heheh].

The only other one I've seen is a weird blue thing made from lots of vehicles. Not sure what it's knocked off from, but it isn't a TF or a Brave. Has a cool sword all the same.

Just asking for the mo, but I might be keen if it's cheap enough.

Farmers here had a few SW TF millenium Falcons, and the usual stash of standard cybertron stuff.

Still no Bloody sign of Primus tho'... kinda beneficial as Im a lil short on ready funds at the moment. :)
