Speaking of Warehouse Albany, over the last weekend I noted they had Optimus Maximus and that large Optimus with the flipout shoulder guns. Weaponiser I think? Looks big, but seems far too rudimentary for my liking.

Lots of extra leftover DOTM items seem to have been put up too.

Toyworld in Albany has TFPrime deluxes 1 x Airachnid and 2 x Dead Ends for anyone interested. However, $40 a pop....

Farmers Albany also has FoC Data Discs sets at $17.99 per pack [$2 cheaper than the warehouse].

Farmers Albany and Toyworld also have heavily reduced Kreo sets: Ratchet, Sideswipe, Prowl - $20, Megatron, Sentinel - $30, Mirage, Jazz - $10 or $15

Toyworld is a smaller company than Farmers or The Warehouse, and they are for the most part franchised, so they have less buying "power", and therefore get little to no discount from the supplier.

Warehouse Albany seems to have got a big dump of P:RiD wave 2 deluxes (as did Manukau) so if you're looking for Vehicons keep an eye on your local Warehouse. Shame they're not on sale at all...

The Warehouse has Prime (not Beast Hunters) Voyagers for $19.98 http://www.thewarehouse.co.nz/red/catal ... KU=1585598
and Weaponizer Prime for $39.97 http://www.thewarehouse.co.nz/red/catal ... KU=1585598
and the Rumble/Ravage & Frenzy/Ratbat packs are $9.98 each. Am I correct in thinking that the FOC Soundwave was never released here? There seems to be a lot of these 2 packs on the shelves, seems very odd decision to bring in these but not the main toy they work with.

My local Warehouse had one Weaponizer Prime and had one Megatron left, Albany and Silverdale Warehouse had one Megatron. Haven't seen any Ultra Magnus or others. Were the other voyagers released here? I wouldn't mind an Ultra Magnus if anybody spots one out there.

I personally have not seen FOC Voyager Soundwave in NZ. I imported mine. I have seen Ultra Magnus in Beast Hunter mold but not the prime mold.

No, we never got the FoC Voyagers. Making the release of the FoC cassettecons absolutely redundant and no wonder at all that they never moved off the shelves.
