Are you going to get to your local Wellington event Daniel?
Probably not, I'm afraid. As I get older it gets tougher to miss my bedtime! That's a rather feeble excuse, but coupled with a need to reign in my frivolous spending it means I probably shouldn't put myself in the risky position of sleep-deprived decision-making in a venue full of shiny new toys. ;) I look forward to reading about everyone else's experiences and seeing the stuff for myself in person on the weekend.

For some maybe! Not only do I not have money to buy, I went into my local Warehouse - only option in town - at lunchtime today and there was no sign of ANYTHING, not even a covered-up display stand!

All I wanted was to get a selfie with a porg for my wife! :cry:

Have fun, all!

Never fear ZY, it's the same story up in New Plymouth. The only store with cleared shelf space this afternoon was Toyworld - but if it's anything like last year, all of the Warehouse and Farmers stores (including Hawera, hopefully) should have stock come opening tomorrow morning.

None of my local stores are having a midnight opening, so my Force Friday will start at 8am tomorrow. Y'all have fun though, and be sure to flood us with pics!
