K-Mart Albany's got the usual assortment of DOTM merchandise, and a couple of Commander Powerglides. Or at least, there's one less now.

There's currently one DOTM Voyager Skyhammer at Farmers Albany.

Almost bought it, but common sense and the need to budget my spending overrode me. Oh well, there will be other opportunities later on. ;)

Got the Mrs to go on a hunt yesterday.
Farmers Albany has 20% off toys and has boxes of stock out back apparently.
I got a Shockwave from out back so if you ask nicely I'm sure there must be more.

The 'cyber-tattoo' deluxes (Bumblebee, Arcee, Jazz and Space Case) which are Target exclusives in the US were at Farmers Albany for $40 apiece. Interesting but I don't know how being semi-translucent makes them worth $10 more than regular deluxes...

I had a look around north shore while on a Trademe pick up
Nothing much of interest at Berkenhead WH
A lone Skyhammer at Glenfeld WH and i got myself a Leader Ironhide Only the one sorry. Asked for 20% off and got it too :D

Went home vire St Lukes. Farmers had the cyber tattoo stuff. No new voyagers.
The other usual suspects had nothing of interest.

New lynn farmers had cyber tattoo stuff as well. That lone Shockwave i spotted earlier has gone.
Didn't check the warehouse

HA Basics at Albany Warehouse Extra. $20 a pop.

They also seem to be having a general sale at the moment on various items. There was something like $5 - $7 dollars knocked off the price for DOTM deluxe figures.

Lots of shelf warming $8 Scalpels though - I sneakily tried to tidy up a bit and consolidated as many as I could onto a single shelf hook.

A whollllllllllle lotta Deluxe OP at Warehouse Glenfield. I'd say nearer the 30-40 mark. Don't think i've ever seen so many of one toy at a time. Also a few of the Prime/Comettor packs.

Also a case of HA Basics had been unveiled.

Farmers Glenfield also had opened a case of the Target Exclusive 'Cyber-Tatoo' series figures, and there was also a Shockwave there too.

Heaps of Deluxe Preview Primes and some Optimus/Comettor sets at Warehouse Albany as well.

That Deluxe Prime is quite a nice toy, but seriously how many do they need at a single store (all at once)? Hope they don't end up shelf warming.

Was hoping to find Preview Sideswipe among that lot, but couldn't find any. :(

Preview Sideswipe? Do tell?
Deluxe Optimus ships 8 per case, ie a solid case. I highly suspect he will be a major part of the Warehouse Toy Sale this year..

Since Voyager Prime w/Commetor has not made it down to Dunedin yet, can someone tell me if he scans as a regular DOTM Voyager which are currently on sale for $45, or if he scans as a special item.
