Warehouse Glenfield had wave 3 Power Core Combiner Commanders Windburn and Steelshot (no sign of Darkstream).

They also had Autobot Alliance wave 4 deluxes - Axor & Rescue Ratchet.

Nice of them to turn up while a good sale is on!

Cheeky devil, I was there about the time you posted this!

Lots of Battle Blades BB, Axor and Rescue Ratchets. Also the PCC's and more in the overstock. Tempted to get some 50% of PCC toys and Axor but ended up passing on them all.

Odd time to get repaints, but saves me bringing some over from Au while I am here (not that I can fit in suitcase though)

K-Mart Albany had some new stock in - the scant remains of a Reveal The Shield G1 Legends case being 2 Trailcutters (now 1), a few Battle Blades Optimus (and a Highbrow who came home with me), plus Powercore Combiner commanders Heavytread and Skyhammer. Looks like they may have had a new bunch of scouts in too as there were a couple more Windbreakers there too if people want them.

Windchargers maybe? I don't think there are transformers named with flatulence jokes in mind.

Whoops - that's what happens when you post in the middle of a long day at work. I did indeed mean Reveal the Shield Windcharger:

rather than the Generation 2 Windbreaker:

Between him, Errector and the near-miss of Over-Run (formerly Spastic), there really is an inappropriately named Transformer for every occasion!

I'm sighting a lack of a sighting.

Just checked Albany Warehouse this evening to see if there was anything worth getting on the last day of the 50% of discount and I was very surprised to see the shelves emptier than they've been in years. There were only legends on the pegs, and more of them in the corner display along with a couple of Mudflingers and one Terradive.

This bodes well for the DOTM stuff that's around the corner.

Farmers Glenfield had the following stock:

DOTM Cyberverse legends
DOTM Cybertron "scout" figures.
DOTM Deluxe wave 1
DOTM Voyager wave 1
DOTM Leader wave 1.
DOTM Cine masks.

No playsets, any wave 2 stock, and even the stock they had was nothing large.

Oddly enough the Warehouse in Glenfield didn't have *any* stock whatsoever. Had a bunch of DOTM advertising around but not a single toy or bit of merchandise.

Toys R Fun in Westfield Albany had a couple of Skyhammers at $60 each, so I assume that Shockwave had already been pilfered from their stock. Also had wave 2 Cyberverse Commanders at $20 as well, but mostly wave 1 stock.
