So it's {ROTF} not as bad as shitting your pants?
Marginally. I honestly had to make a pro and con list to figure it out.

1st movie leader megs is tucked in amongst the ROTF stuff at Farmers. Not marked down at all ($99).

Looks like the 20% off sale finally managed to clear the shelves of Supreme TFA Optimus Prime, still a few leader megs though.

Almost weekly i do the rounds of TW, Warehouses and Farmers.

TW Fitzroy minimal stock, all DOTM as far as i can see.

Warehouse NP good selection of Deluxes, a few Voyagers (Megs, Skyhammer and 3 Shockwaves last I was in) and TONS of 'exclusive' OP.

Warehouse BBK a surprisingly large selection including a few TF2010 Scouts, an RPM Soundwave and other, DOTM product.

Farmers has plenty of ROTF (or HFTD, i dont remember) Jolts on $20 clearance as well as tons of Cyberverse and a few deluxes - mostly Bee.
Cheers, Zac in Whanganui

A single Legions Crowbar at City Warehouse, and a pretty comprehensive set of RPMs, Voyager Sentinel and Ultimate Optimus at Toyworld. Not much else new around unfortunately (Hatchet and Soundwaves please!).

Bellblock Warehouse has plenty of Lunarfire Prime, I'm glad I didn't get the first dlx OP.

Now for something completely different:
Best and less in Waitara has oversized KO's of HA Bee, some weird Barricade KO, dlx ROTF Sideswipe with a sword, missile, (no launcher though) and an assault rifle of some description, also a 6pk of horridly coloured legends including a flouro beachcomber and a blue hound.
WANTED: ROTF Lockdown, Classics Grimlock Missile, ROTF Stratosphere.

Best 4 Less and Coin Save on Devon Street have the Super Changing Robot deluxes, B4L only has the HA and the scoutish sixpack.

Coin Save also have Distortion Android - Animated Megatron, roughly scout-size, for $5! Also in this range is a ROTF Sonar(?stealth ship) and another, almost Cybertronian red car.

The Warehouse in central NP has one each of the new Deluxes Air Raid (the 767 AWACS, not the F-35) and Darksteel. No sign of Autobot Armor Topspin, and no Cyberverse at all.

Prime Soundwave will be mine.

As of midday yesterday Toyworld and both Warehouses had no Prime, just went to Farmers and none there either.
:x
BUT EDIT: a kind team member at The Warehouse NP said 24 TRANSFORMERS PRIME DELUXE ASSORTED are "on their way".

Gutted, bro *strokes his TFP Soundwave* :P

I'm hoping The Warehouse will have wave 2 as well. I am allowed to dream! Decided I'm gonna get all the show characters and right now I've got 2 Decepticons vs 5 Autobots.

Love you too bro :x juuuust kidding. Kinda.

I'm pretty sure she said 24. If it's wave 1 only then I'll be after Soundwave and Wheeljack.

I look forward to seeing the CV stuff, particularly Commander Bulkhead.
