Finally seen my first Deluxe Airachnid, 2 or 3 of them at Farmers and currently at $15. Very tempting.

The Warehouse was much more exciting as the Beast Hunters line has arrived and I am excited. Those in stock include:
Cyberverse Legion Airachnid (tiiiny), Smokescreen, Bumblebee and Twinstrike $9.99
Commander Optimus, Predaking, Bulkhead (didn't check price)
Deluxe Wheeljack (more interesting than I thought in stock pics), Lazerback, Bumblebee $31.99
Voyager Predaking $49.99

Not sure if Hawera counts, but:

Hawera Warehouse had a lovely collection of all things TF: Prime, Rescue Bots AND Beast Hunters including
Cyberverse Legion Airachnid, Bumblebee, Smokescreen and Twintwist
Cyberverse Commander Bulkhead, Optimus Prime and Predaking
Deluxe Bumblebee/Squatbee, Lazerback, Soundwave (nice to see Ravage) and Wheeljack
Voyager Optimus (tempting, very tempting) and Predaking
Great levels of stock present for BH and the remaining RID (lots of Cyberverse Commanders)

Farmers have nothing new - but I did have to hand in a Generations data disk two-pack as it had come off its cardback.

The Warehouse has news stuff, we were in-and-out as we were off to a movie but I did see:
TFP:BH CV Commander Trailcutter
TFP:BH CV Commander Hardshell
TFP:BH CV Commander Shockwave
TFP:BH CV Starscream
TFP:BH Voyager Ultra Magnus who looks GREAT and I must get
As I said we were pressed for time so I couldn't see if the other new wave items were there, sorry!

Hey folks,
Farmers New Plymouth has the Silver Knight two-pack of (DotM Deluxe?) Optimus Prime and Generations/FoC Voyager Grimlock redecoed into.....something else. Didn't see the price, sorry. Lots of the Generations-y Legions, Leaders and Flip-and-changers.

Hawera Warehouse's AoE line has been obliterated, with only a handful of the gimmicky deluxes left. Still some Beast Hunters Commanders lingering, as well as several Constructbots and the big non-transforming Rescue Bots OP figure.

New plymouth warehouse had the first wave of cw figures in stock.
Really want the silver megs but im not paying retail for it so will wait for a sale.
They do look real nice in person though.

Found CW and RiD at Hawera Warehouse last night. I don't remember ever being so excited at seeing figures on the pegs and shelves.

Didn't have much time but saw
Some RiD (see above - little time/interest for now)
x1 each of CW Leader G1 Megs (WOW) and Armada Megs
x1 of Silverbolt (such want) and Voyager OP
x1 of Dragstrip, Alpha Bravo
x2 Firefly and Skydive
x1 Bombshell (really wanted to see Powerglide :( )

20% off, and here I am with no spare cash til the day AFTER the specials! :x

NP Toyworld has most of Wave 1 CW - didn't see the Megs tanks - including Powerglide, who looks excellent. They had some RiD too.

Farmers? Nothing. Age Of Ultron endcap but not a single new non-AOE TF.

If it's like it is in Auckland, I expect it's the 2-inch scale figures, the vehicles (including the Quinjet which is the only one I'm looking at picking up) and the Titan figures.

I only really noticed Titan figures - seemed like two lines, one with more articulation. One of the Ultron variants had teeth.....not a fan of that look at all!! Nothing else stood out but you could be right about the vehicles.

Turns out they DO have more Legends at Hawera Warehouse! Two of each. Now minus one Powerglide.

The in-laws are getting into jigsaw puzzles which meant a visit to Toyworld while we’re up seeing them!

I got to see my first POTP Deluxe: Slug. Not many other deluxes except a single SS Stinger and five or six Crowbars. Another personal first was getting to see SS Blackout / they also had Grimlock, and Evolutions Optimus and Rodimus. A couple of Movie Voyagers and a couple of SS Starscreams, a couple of Movie Legends and a gfew Prime Masters and POTP Legends.

Paid a trip to The Warehouse Hawera for old times' sake. Meh! Cyberverse is there in force, as well as the usual gaggle of Cosmos and Seaspray. And a Titans Return Windblade! She looks much better in person than I expect.

Picked up Earthrise Optimus, Astrotrain, Grapple and Soundbarrier from Farmers, 20% off with club card. Left 1 each of Grapple and Starscream on the shelf with plenty of Soundbarrier and micro masters on the pegs.
