It's deja vu all over again with the deluxe Prime mold. The Warehouse Albany have buckets and buckets of Lunarfire Optimus Prime. Basically deluxe Prime repaint paired up with his voyager weapon.

There's one less now, but there's still far too many on the shelves.

Newly opened Toyworld in Albany has quite a few of the later DOTM Cyberverse vehicles - Prime with Trailer, Shockwave, Ratchet, etc - on special for $12.30 each.

On the not-so-cool side, they have Airraid/Dark Steel wave of DOTM deluxes going for $40 each. Good grief - the NZ dollar is higher than ever against the US and they're charging for a deluxe that goes for US$12?? If they keep that price structure for Prime RID then I really don't know how kids will be able to persuade their parents to drop that sort of cash for a barely-bigger-than-Scout-class toy. Toyworld really do seem to be trying to run themselves out of business...

Our local toyworld has been closed for a week and as of the last 24 hours it was noted they have closed down. Do not know what caused this I do know it was up for sale in the last month or so.

Paid a visit to Albany this afternoon and breezed through a few shops. Missed K-Mart, but in general:

Warehouse - nothing noteworthy to speak about. A few rescue Ratchets and the Topspin repaints.
Farmers - Transformers? What's that?
Toys R Fun - Prime RID voyagers Prime and Megatron, and the deluxe wave including Bumblebee, Cliffjumper, Soundwave and I think Starscream. As usual though, a high markup that I would expect to pay for the Takara releases.

No, you're right. Memory lapse there. It would've been Wheeljack.

Curious that the big chain stores haven't hit them out yet. I wonder if they're waiting for something...anyone know when the school holidays start? They can't be far away. Or perhaps a big Easter push is in order?

school holidays start either end of this week or next. Pretty sure by Easter weekend the big chains will be flooded with them. But with Megatron at a 1:3 ratio I figured I'd say myself the trouble and pick him up at the extra price now instead of hunting around. Man do I prefer online shopping.
