I put the cannon-less Megs in front of the deluxes so I could take it up front - and put one with a cannon in back for later - but I forgot to!

Back living in Whanganui and although I’m out of work and I can’t afford even a Titan Master right now, I still wanted to see what’s out there. I had some pleasant surprises!

Please note I’m not yet an RID watcher and have no idea what I’m looking at so I’ve ignored them. If anyone has any queries I’ll be happy to include them in future.

Farmers
Looking at the company website last night may have got my hopes up...even my memories of past visits les me to expect more than the above!
Combiner Wars: x1ea Legends Bombshell and Chopshop
Titan Masters: Titan Master Crashbash x1 and Loudmouth x2, Legends Roadtrap x1
TLK: x1ea Legion Grimlock and Crosshairs, Deluxe Berserker x4 and Slash x2, Voyager Scorn and Grimlock
Studio Series: x1ea Bumblebee and Stinger, x2ea Ratchet and Crowbar, and a single Voyager Starscream

The Warehouse
I was pleasantly surprised by the TF range which, as you can see, takes up a lot of shelf and peg space. Apart from a slight Jurassic World incursion everything you see is Transformers!
There were so many Titan Masters and Power of the Primes Legends figs that there weren’t enough pegs - several figs were just lying on the shelf. Most of them were Seaspray and Cosmos, with a smattering of Brawn, Battleslash and Roadtrap. There was one Skrapnel that I hope sticks around til I have $12.
There were also two “columns” of pegs with a healthy mix of Titan Masters ($5 is a great price AND I found one I want...) and Prime Masters.
In addition there were two Voyager PotP Starscreams and one each Leader Rodimus Prime and Blaster.
TLK: about six or eight each Legion Crosshairs and Drift, Voyager Hound x2, Leader Dragonstorm x2 and Megatron x4.
Studio Series: one each Voyager Optimus Prime and Starscream.

I’ve been out of the hobby for three years and I’ve had a lot to learn and catch up on!

Wow your Warehouse actually gives Transformers room to breathe! Nice to see.

And some good ones too, the ones here are like just 30x Seaspray and Cosmos shoved into a corner and the Titan Masters picked clean. :(

I know, right! It made me happier than I expected - a nice sort of homecoming to the hobby for me. Now to get some money...

Farmers seems to have had a restock of some kind ahead of the current sale as they had four Nitro Zeus, my first time seeing the mould in person.

The Warehouse Whanganui has Bumblebee Energon Igniters Nitro...and nothing else. And here I was with a $30 gift card, all set to buy Speed Series Bug Bee and Barricade.

And today I got ‘em! Over the weekend they put out the Bumblebee stock - lots of I think everything Wave 1. They even had Power Series Megatron which was neat to see, and Power Series Shatter which I didn’t even know existed!.

Power Charge Bee is bigger than I expected and feels way heavier too - I’m impressed! I kinda want one even more now...

Farmers has a Legacy Eject, no sign of anyone else from his wave. Maybe I'm late to the party?

Blaster and Eject? Should be same wave as Bulkhead for voyager, Dragstrip, Arcee, Skids, Kickback for deluxe, Galvatron and G2/Laser Prime for leaders and Skywarp, Hot Rod and Iguanus for the Core.

Should be available through other places like Toyworld, Toyco, Mighty Ape, The Warehouse if your stores are out. Farmers online can say where each class is but not what figures are where, same for the warehouse. Such a pain. I saw Mighty Ape sell out of their first shipment but they've had a restock.

Aha! Farmers did indeed have the other classes, I got mixed up. It's so nice to see Legacy here and I'm excited to find Knockout and Cosmos...
