What figures/waves can I expect to find at BigW this weekend? My closet store is 30min away (fwp) and I don't want to call the store with a whole shopping list of potential figures.

My own interests are the Titans Return deluxes and TLK main line but any advice may help people.

The extra 10% does work in store? Now I find out. (But it'd be 10% off the 20% off price though wouldn't it?)

From what I've seen at various Big Ws in Victoria: TLK Optimus And Megatron leaders, Hound and Megatron voyager, wave 1 and 2 Deluxes.

Mostly early waves of TR deluxes but have seen the Twin Twist, Misfire, Windblade wave.

Yeah mines 40mins away and I have a $150 gift voucher my brother gave me for my 40th. Sadly there seems to be little to justify the drive even given the circumstances

The Mega 1-step Dragonstorm could be worth getting, at 20% (or 30% off if it actually works in-store)... which would bring it down to about $80 or $70.
Yes, it is a simplistic, oversized gimmick toy, but the blacklight gimmick is fun to use on your toys, to see which plastics are light reactive.

And this toy is about AU$110 at retail in America, so if you can get it for about AU$70 at BigW this weekend, it's a huge difference to what Americans have to pay.

Yeah we had a few issues today at work with the promotion and it took a couple of hours to get it fully working. I guess it would have been the same for all stores not just mine.

I had considered it and may have even grabbed it if I hadnít had to drive so far. But I figure this toy is likely to end up like the TF4 StompíníChomp Grimlock - ending up about a 3rd itís original price in many stores
