Yeah, heaps of all the deluxes there. I would have grabbed them but I already have a Triggerhappy and Twinferno sitting in my pile of loot at BBTS. Triggerhappy looks so good.

Wave 4? Where are the voyagers and leaders? Do we not get them anymore?

from my understanding when I contacted hasbro a couple of months back with the impending release of the movie line the store buyers are probably holding off the titans line to opt for the movie line

Yup, wave 4 deluxes. No new voyagers, and pretty sure no new leaders either. In fact I don't think I saw any voyagers (I know some Farmers stores have been swimming in Galvatrons).

Did the Wave 2 voyagers even make it to any Farmers stores? I know The Warehouse got them.

Personally I'm still searching for a Kickback and holding out hope for wave 3 and 4 Titan Masters.

Snagged a Kickback from Toyco's second lot of stock, so I'm sorted for him :D

I haven't seen any. Seems like it's just the previous wave at the moment. I assume you mean the deluxe rather than the one that comes with Laserbeak? Not that I've seen either version! But just so I can let you know if I see him.

Cheers, man! Yeah, I don't know anything about the RiD lines as you might've guessed, heh. It's this one here:

Ah yup, that's the one I meant when I said deluxe. I forgot they call them Warrior class for RID. Soundwave is in the next wave, which is either RID Wave 10 or RID Combiner Force Wave 2, depending on how you spin it. Far as I know Wave 7 and 8 were skipped in NZ, so hopefully we'll get the next batch.

wow, that RID soundwave looks mean! i'm not a big fan though i watch randomly from time to time with my son on netflix (season 2 and start of season 3 are up, i think). anyway, we were in warehouse newmarket this morning and didn't see any TR wave 3 or 4 deluxes, i'm guessing they got snagged with the quickness... just randoms from waves 1 and 2, no voyagers or leaders...

we did see one each of RID stormshot and blastwave in case anyone's interested? pretty sure i read somewhere here that someone's after these fellas? saw pics of thermadore at toy fair and would definitely get him if i saw him on the shelves...

Forgot I had some actual sigtings to post too :P

Toyco St Lukes
One Kickback amongst the Gnaws and Bumblebees. One Kup and either Perceptor or Topsin from Titans Wave 4.

Farmers St Lukes
One full set of five Titans Wave 4 deluxes and extras of the new moulds.
At least one of each Titans Wave 3 mould, including three of Triggerhappy.

Warehouse St Lukes
I think they had Stormshot and Blastwave.

Warehouse Newmarket

I saw Blastwave and Starscream there about 1pm yesterday, but no Stormshot. Stormshot looks pretty great, as do a lot of the upcoming new RID Warrior class moulds.


Seen so many Wave 4 deluxes now, but I have to wait patiently for Premium Collectables to get their stock.

i know what u mean, i'm waiting on our shipment too...

we were at warehouse newmarket early yesterday, before midday, so i guess stormshot got bought between then and 1pm. we were there again today but i wasn't paying attention, just saw the random TRs from waves 1 and 2, though i did notice the one voyager, astrotrain. and totes agree, the RID warriors are looking really good!

thanx windbreaker, for the tip. i managed to cop all 5 TR wave 4 deluxes today from farmers st lukes (after i was told it ain't too late to cancel my overseas order!). all at 25% off! ace!

unfortunately, there's not much left of that wave at farmers st lukes after my haul, only 3 kups and a whole lotta wave 3s - triggerhappy, hot rod, twinferno and the one getaway. no RID warriors in sight.

kmart st lukes had mostly TR wave 3s, some wave 2s and 1s (weirdwolf, highbrow, chromedome), no wave 4s. some random RID warriors including blastwave, no stormshot.

warehouse st lukes had random TR titan masters and legends, don't think i saw any deluxes or larger. though they had some RID warriors like starscream, blastwave etc. no stormshot.
