Just a friendly note, we don't use the term 'gay' in a derogative manner on TFNZ.

Had a chance to visit the Albany Warehouse and was disappointed as usual. Lately they haven't really had much in the way of new items, and the Ironman display's encroached into half of its shelf space. However, did notice exactly one Bludgeon and three or four Mindwipes when I was there.

One less Mindwipe, and with the current 40% off, it was quite a bargain.

Even had I remembered, I only had enough for either Bludgeon, or a new pair of workboots. The shoes won. ;)

I could swing by again after work tomorrow and grab it if it's still there.

Full range of HFTD at Albany Kmart - everything from Scouts through Leaders.

Unfortunately they wouldn't pricematch Warehouse's 40% off when I tried to buy Seaspray - the Warehouse person they rang gave full price ($55.99) rather than sale price which was more expensive than the $49.99 Kmart was charging in the first place. Mutter mutter.... Still, signs up for a big toy sale starting 1 July so will keep an eye on it for then.

All these sightings for 40% off Bludegon's, but no one seems to carry enough cash with them.
There is always layby when you dont have the cash available.

Is anyone able to get a 40% off Bludegon before the sale ends?

No luck, Albany Warehouse were clear out of Bludgeons when I went back.

One other thing I noticed when I was there, they've actually got the PCCs, but only in the specials aisle near the entrance. Not sure how I missed that the day before...

Not sure if there's any interest, as they are shelf warmers, but I noticed that Albany Warehouse has got the Animated Wreckgar and Atomic Lugnuts on clearance for something like $25.

That's cheaper than the ROTF/NEST deluxes!

I don't know if this is a nationwide sale, but I was at the Albany Westfield Farmers and they appear to be having a 20% off toy clearance this weekend. The sale extends to TFs.

Also, if anyone's spotted that headless Powercore Smolder that's been there for a while: his head is still there. It's just loose in the bubble.
