Sorry, meant movie exclusive Sideswipe. So none at all with the Optimus case? That's quite overkill.

Cheers - managed to site them. So the Exclusive Sideswipe is a repaint of Sidearm Sideswipe? Not bad - think I may have to get one after all.

Just to confirm, the movie exclusives were scanning for $19.95 at K-Mart. Not sure if this was an error, but I didn't see them being specifically labelled at the high $30-ish mark the Mechtech deluxes are being sold at.

Also saw at K-Mart, not in the normal aisle, but in the specials section down by the bar code scanning machine towards the middle of the shop, bundles of DOTM Voyager paired with a 'bonus' Deluxe. I think they were going for about $59. Pairings seem to be randomly thrown together so it doesn't look too bad if you can get the pair you're after.

I found HtfD Scouts at Warehouse Glenfield, they weren't in any clearance area however and just had normal stickered price tags. However there was no voyagers to be found and I really want a Highbrow.

I have a spare if needed. I had a cancelation of the ones I brought on Saturday due to it being found locally (which was in Auckland)
Gotta see if I can return clearance items

Just went to Albany Warehouse and see they've got a toy sale on.

I saw the HFTD scouts on sale for $9 each, including the likes of Hubcap, Breacher and Insecticon. Not the usual place, but in the specials aisle (the one you walk straight into from the entrance). In fact, they aren't even in the Transformer display in that aisle, but rather off down the right shelf amongst some other toys.

DOTM Deluxes are going for $22. Voyagers I think were down to $45.

New stock since I last went appears to be the new DOTM Voyagers. Fireburst Prime (repaint of Voyager Prime with a new Mechtech sniper rifle/axe), Voyager Sentinel Prime and Voyager Shockwave. They're also part of the sale.

Didn't see any of the new Cyberverse stuff on display.

Warehouse Glenfield has the latest stock of DOTM Deluxes. Mudflap, Thundercracker, Laserbeak, Specialist Ratchet and two flavours of repainted Bumblebee. Nitro and the flamed deco one.

Toys R Fun Albany had Darksteel, Specialist Ratchet and Autobot Armor Topspin. Nice, but not nice enough to pay their prices of $29.99 while on special.

That reminds me, visited Warehouse Albany and they've now got ROTF Ultimate Prime, Deluxe Sideswipe, Nitro Bumblebee, Mudflap. I think there were Thundercrackers and Laserbeaks too, but I didn't quite search too hard for them.

Also new since I last went were Cyberverse Megatron and Blastwave and Prime and Armored Weapons Platform.
