Sightings - Auckland Central and New Market

Postby Dr Syn » Wed May 21, 2008 1:26 pm

About time I started a central Auckland sightings thread, instead of me posting it in the West Auckland thread...


We have worm sign!

Animated Transformers, unleash you wallets

Warehouse Newmarket:

Deluxes: $30

Lockdown (minus one heh) Cybertron Mode Prime, Prowl and Bumble Bee.

Voyager: $50

Two Bulkheads and a Cybertron mode Megatron (Starscream took me hostage...)


The Battle Begins Deluxe Earth Prime vs Deluxe Cybertron Megatron

$50 and comes with the 1st episode of the show (how they got to earth)

A pretty good pack


Downtown had nothing but Allspark Leader class Brawl and some wave 1 movie deluxes :(

Not exclusive at all outside of the US, wide release through Europe and such. There's another wave to come, too.

Hi, have been loking at the Kmart Toy catalogue (sale due to start 3rd July 08), they are going to have the Ultimate Bumblee Big figure that comes with the small tit as well for $99.95 (usually$149.95) for those of you who are interested. Price not bad considering Farmers in Pakuranga also have it for $149.99. Farmers Pakuranga also had a Pink Arcee.
Kmart will aso have the Transformers All Spark Blaster on special for $34.95(usually $59.99)

Warehouse are also due to have a toy catalogue out too so that will be something to look out for!

Visited relatives in Aucks today, called into Farmers New Market for a look...

Ended up walking out with Blitzwing and Voyager Prime. :P

Saw Lugnut and Grimlock but couldn't justify spending $200 on mass market TFs in one go...

Small write-up in the kitbash/reviews thread.

Movie deluxes
Animated: Same figures and mentioned previously but i did spy a Oil slick and aside from the lack of articulation he looks awesome

Toyworld st. lukes now has Universe deluxes at their standard over-inflated price of $37

the new star wars line is out also at farmers.
that new Millennium falcon made my jaw drop. serious coolness
