Why is that when Wellington gets Transformers first it is for stuff I'm not interested in heh

Spotted at Wellington Toyworld.

Gotta admit, big Prime looks really nice. Looks like a good fun toy even if the alt mode is just weird. Not sure why the windvane is a separate piece but I haven't been following this line.

$50 for a deluxe, what the hell is that Toyworld owner smoking?

$79.99 for the big Prime and the rest you can see.

Never buy Transformers from that Toyworld. Unfortunately Lower Hutt is the same (same owner I think).

They do decent prices on other stuff sometimes though.

For a Warrior, which is meant to be a simpler Deluxe. It's crazy is what it is.

Like I said on TFW, even if it's a line I have no interest in it's great to see them arriving.

Those prices. Wow. I didn't even look at the Warrior pics close enough to see that. Ouch!

Oh joy, another series of toys that stores can fill their TF section with that I have no interest in.

Buying online isn't as exciting as hunting down stuff yourself, but local stores don't leave you much choice with what they stock.

Grimlock looks kinda cool imo...other than that not alot of interest from me, but it's cool to see some new stuff hitting the shelves! Will have to go check these out for myself soon.

you know just thinking about these prices this is very normal for ToyWorld, every time they get something first dont they always just trow the prices up so high its not funny hoping to catch that one or two fans that are willing to pay this, joke is on them with this line, i hope they like dust instead of cash lol

Spent all day in Porirua and Wellington today looking at shops, very little of interest other than all the different stores now filling their shelves with Cyberverse junk.

At least a more reasonable price than Toyworld's one from earlier if you're interested in them at all.

Speaking of Toyworld tho, they've had a shipment of wave 3 PotP deluxes in which is cool if you still needed them. Its more and more looking like we're never getting those wave 2 voyagers though. I should have imported Elita-1 as well when I got Hun-Gurrr I guess. :roll:

Wonder if we'll see wave 3 Prime Masters, I really want those too.

If any of you guys are interested in a cheap set of RiD 2001 Decepticons, there's a bag of the 5 Combaticon repaints for 12 bucks at Salvation Army Paraparaumu. Movor is broken but I'm not entirely sure he's not fixable.

Must be nearing Christmas because K-Mart actually had some Power of the Primes stuff up on their shelves now! Too bad its the exact same old wave 2 Prime Masters and Legends stuff that everyone else has as well.

I got so excited initially, seeing them newly stocked thinking :pray: please wave 3 Prime Masters :pray: but nope. :cry:
