This afternoon Petone K-Mart had a handful of Siege deluxes left on shelf, from memory: x2 Sideswipes, 1x Hound and a Skytread I found dumped by the checkouts lol. So get in quick if you're after any of those ones cause when I went and got my Cog on Friday (literally just a day ago) they had more at that time, people snapping them up!

They had NO Battle Masters for some reason (probably just because those were the ones I specifically wanted of course). :( Maybe they just hadn't put them out yet?



Porirua K-Mart DID have Battle Masters today though, yay! They had a good amount of them other than the -3 I took. :D

And they had more deluxes than Petone left, at least 1 of each.


I do think the deluxe ones look cool, I want a Flywheels at some point but nar just being good and limiting myself. Wasn't really expecting these until March or whatever heh.

Kmart in Petone still have 1x Sideswipe from Siege. The other new bits were Studio Series. Quite a few Bee's, KSI Sentry's, Dropkicks and a lone DOTM Ratchet.

Got Bee for my son. It's tiny, but it's very good. He didn't have any troubles transforming it either so be wary of what you read online.

Wave 2 Siege Battle Masters are showing up in Warehouse's round here now. Grabbed Pteraxadon and Aimless today for $10 each.

They still don't have any deluxes yet though, soon I assume?

ALSO:

Botbots are here!

I got a Hotdog and a Dinosaur pot plant thing.

$4 each for the mystery bag ones or $16 for the pack of 5 (4 you can see and a mystery one).

Petone Warehouse has Prowl, Chromia and Ironhide. Not much else though; just a few random Cyberverse items.

They had those Halo figures so I grabbed a Chief for $10. A bargain, really. Might grab another figure to get some weapons for Chief.

Did they have multiples left by any chance? Or was that the only Chief? I was looking for them in Upper Hutt today and couldn't even see them on the shelves. Should have gone to Petone! :lol:

Yep! They had about 3-4 of each character. They were on the bottom shelf where the TF's are.

Went and had a look there for Master Chief today but no luck, he must have been all snapped up over the weekend.

I'll check some of the other branches around, see if I can find anything.

Cheers anyway!

Moved down to Wellington from Auckland recently & figured I'd check the local stores out.

Petone K-Mart has nothing past wave 2 Seige but has Studio Series Rampage, Bumblebee Movie Optimus & Bumblebee & Ironhide while Petone Warehouse has about 4 Chromia & 1 Prowl.

Whitcoull's on Lambton Quay has wave 2 of Seige deluxes & Toyworld is stocked both voyagers & deluxes + Shockwave & high prices to boot.

Wellington Warehouse has to be the most disappointing I've seen with maybe 2 battle masters :/

Alright, guys, y'all are gonna want to check out Paraparaumu Warehouse, they've done a massive restock, including now having the Wave 1 deluxes, i.e. Flywheels, Sideswipe, Hound and Cog. They've also restocked Soundwave and Starscream, along with having Wave 1 and Two Micromasters and BattleMasters. So essentially, they have "new" stock which is technically old stock we'd missed out on previous, so if you want em, give our Warehouse a squizz.

My local one had wave 3 Battle Masters as well (i.e Caliburst and Smashdown) so that's interesting.

Too bad I assumed they wouldn't come out here and imported months ago.

Even stranger I noticed today they had the 'Off Road Patrol' (Powertrain & Highjump) Micromasters which are wave 4 judging by the wiki.

Stock here is all over the place. :?

Hey Link!
Just curious, which warehouse is your local?
The one in Te Aro Wellington only had battle master Aimless & those terrible cyberverse legends XD

Also, to anyone in the Wellington region, are there any other stores besides Warehouse, Toyworld & Whitcoull's that stock TFs?
I'm relatively new to the area.
Cheers
