Farmers have the signs up, but nothing out. They have Avengers toys, but no Prime :?

Farmers have nothing.

The Warehouse NP has a restock of Deluxes/Revealers, so four Wheeljacks and two Soundwaves. They also have Voyagers/Powerizers (OP and Megatron) and Cyebrverse Legions: two each Arcee, Vehicon and Ratchet, 2mil Cliffjumpers and 3mil Bumblebees.

Whitcoulls in Centre City have Cyberverse Legions and Robots In Disguise Deluxes (several Bees and one each Soundwave and Wheeljack) - these are physically priced at $16.99 but scan at $35. I had no problem getting mine for the cheaper, stickered price.

The Warehouse NP now has Cyberverse Commanders Megatron, Starscream, Bulkhead (minus 1 :wink: ) and two-three pegs of Optimus Prime. There are only Legions Bee left, as well as the Deluxes/Revealers and Voyagers/Weaponizers.

Farmers still has nothing except OP masks.

Finally Farmers have Prime! No Commanders or Voyagers, but a goodly selection of Legions and Deluxes*.

* - Wave 1 as far as I could see, will check again tomorrow for Ratchet but I'm really not hopeful.

No new Prime at Farmers or Warehouse, but Bot Shots are here and I am impressed! Smaller than I expected and thus more cute! I probably won't get any but I like 'em.

Bring on Wave 2 delxue. I want Ratchet!

I'm in New Plymouth at the moment visiting relatives and looking at a job opportunity, So I decided to stop at the local toy outlets...


TOYWORLD HAS PRID WAVE 3 DELUXES!!!

I recruited the Vehicon for my small army (2 out 3, one to go). The rest of the wave is still there, but RotorstormNP undoubtedly is out for my blood (and toys) now....

*runs*

Both warehouses have those remote controlled transformers, Knock Out and Bumblebee are the first wave at $50 each. I might get one on discount later, they look pretty cool.

Nothing out the ordinary at Farmers.

I didn't know Vehicon was a separate wave, otherwise I woulda mentioned him! He's been there since I first saw Ratchet, close to three weeks ago now.
