As on their website, full compliment of Titans Return Wave 1 at Toyco in St Lukes, with the notable absence of Sentinel Prime. As of last night: oodles of Titan Masters, a good chunk of Legends, at least three of each deluxe, three Optimus Primes and a partridge in a pear tree a single Blaster. Also a good smattering of RID Weaponizers Wave 1 and (I think) Power Surge Prime.

Couldn't help grinning seeing the shelves full of new stock.

totes agree, it was great seeing so much new stock over-flowing toyco's shelves today. i would have been super-excited had i not already got all of them (thanx, prowl is prime!). yep, no sentinel prime and no leaders although their website says they're in stock. had a good look around the store too cos we were getting pressies. also, still loadsa victorion and g2 superion sets. still looking out for computron...

hard to believe that wave 2 deluxes have already been sighted elsewhere!

Hasbro NZ doesn't have any plans to bring in Computron unfortunately - www.transformersnewzealand.com/tfnzboar ... 30#p207575

thanx, windbreaker. yes, i saw that, but was still kinda hoping it would just magically appear on toyco's shelves (seeing that they got other sets)... oh well, will just have to move on to plan b and import...

Newmarket Warehouse has 2 lots of wave 2 Titans Return deluxes. Unfortunately someone must have bought 2 x Highbrow as they only had Chromedome, Mindwipe and Wolfwire available.
Big ups to TWH for their Best Price Promise though :D

Went for a hunt and found doubles of each wave 2 deluxe plus a couple Gavatron's at the Warehouse in Mt.Roskill.

Minus 1 Highbrow (I had to :P ).

One Galvatron left on the shelf at Farmers St Lukes yesterday afternoon. Not sure what else was in stock as someone else was picking up a Galvatron for me, but it sounds like there weren't any other voyagers either.

Warehouse Mt Roskill has four Alpha Trions and and two each of the Wave 2 Titans Returns deluxes. Also three Galvatrons and a Combiner Wars Onslaught. No Wave 1 deluxes., no Astrotrains.

Warehouse St Lukes is still pretty bare when it comes to Titans Returns, but has a range of RID stuff.

Farmers Newmarket had an Astrotrain and an Alpha Trion hidden away on top of the shelves. They still have Blaster, Mindwipe, Skullcruncher, Rewind, Ravage, Rumble, Laserbeak, quite a few Galvatrons, some RIDs, Combiner Wars Mirage and a few simple-looking Age of Extinction Dinobots of some sort.

St Lukes Farmers had a couple of Mindwipes, Stripes, Rumble and Ravage plus one or two RID figures.

New Market Farmers still has those Combiner Wars Mirages.


Also had 2 Titans Returns Mindwipes (no others I could see).


The Warehouse has assorted RiD Warriors (Thunderhoof & Quillfire I saw), along with various Titans Returns, wave one I believe. All of it on sale.
