Unlikely, since Deluxes ship 8 figures per case, we'd likely see 3 of each autobots, and 2 of Octane. It may be that Kmart is shipping stock from it's Australian branch, and not stocking a full wave from Hasbro NZ

Kmart in Manukau has 2 Prowls and 1 Sunstreaker. I think maybe we are getting a special case with no Tankor/Octane and 2 Prowls because everywhere has 2 Prowls and 1 Sunstreaker.

That sucks

Farmers Pakuranga has 2 lots of the voyager wave. Only 1 lugnut and 1 grimlock though. They also had soundwave but none of the other deluxes. A shame as I want a Snarl for some reason


I quite like Snarl, niggling 'bot mode stability issues aside. Could certainly have done with some additional minor paint apps - specifically on the collar around his neck, a lick of black paint and gold detail for the bolts would have finished him off nicely.

Another sore point is the fact that he has nil waist articulation. I can't help but feel it might have been included if he had of received the Voyager treatment. He wouldn't have had to be as tall as Grimlock, quite the contrary in fact, as part of his appeal is how 'squat' he is. Oh well, them's the breaks!

A shit lode of Jazz's at botany downs farmers + soundwave, snarl, oil slick etc
Tyred to get 20% off but they wouldn't have a bar of it (Its only supposed to be 20% movie deluxe, but its worth arguing otherwise :roll: )

found 1 movie deluxe bb in pakuranga farmers, and 1 bb activators in botany down (which I snatched)
I also snatched the only octane they have there in botany down (rest is sunstreak/prowl)
lots of deluxe animated on botany downs (wave 3), too bad both farmers only have bulkhead as activators (minus the bb I snatched)

Well I best chip in. Had a sick day so went over to the farmers whilst at the chemist.

Farmers Botany

Heaps of movie stuff.

Animated
They got some more Jazz's in (only took notice of him cos everyone seems to want)
Usually first wave voyagers (dang)

Universe
Sideswipe x2
Ironhide (Gone)
Silverstreak (Gone)
Galvatron (few)
Sunstreaker (few)
Acid Storm (Few)

Ironhide is cool but like with puzzle formers getting him to slot all back into vehicle mode takes some practise. Bits will pop off at first, as you learn where the tabs are but now I know nothing ever pops off. I recommend

Silverstreak has joints that are a lot tighter than Prowls. a LOT. His windshield stays in place in bot mode and I am very happy with him. I also found out that the feet also pull down further on a slide thing so that they clear the back window. I never knew this about Prowl and it isnt in the instructions. Gives him a some more stability.

Warehouse in Pakuranga have KO devastator, superion, defensor for quite cheap price, the quality is also really cheap.. (worse than the KO on ebay, and cheaper too!)
Also I bought Overcast (movie allspark) for $17.78 at Botany Down Warehouse 8) (but all other is still $29.99.. a glitch or something?!)

Ok Botany first
Farmers have Universe combiners (both) and Spec ed Prime and Megs (A couple of each)


Pakuranga Farmers have Animated Grimlock and Lugnut, a fresh batch of wave 3 and the same old other stuff.

Warehouse Pakuranga has movie wave ....um... something incinerators a plenty (no hands, looks dumb) and cliffjumper, jungle bonecrusher etc

Im really over the movie toys, didnt think that much of them, and way prefer animated.

...which is a development for me since from pre-shots I liked the movie toys and didnt want a bar of animated. If thats the case I may just like that jetfire/jetstorm thing (cos I dont from the pics)

Is that the Voyager Grimlock or the smaller one? Man I can't find the Voyager one anywhere here in Wellington. :( Granted I only started looking a few weeks ago, so I just assume its a 'been and gone' long time ago sorta thing.

Botany Downs Farmers has a large amount of the Animated Jetfire/Jetstorm two pack. It's not bad looking when you see it in person. All four "Premium" Classics figures are out too. :wink:
