I found Paige at Farmers today but no sign of any of the others.
After I posted my question, I went to the Warehouse in Auckland CBD and found 2 Paiges. Woo hoo!

Will do tonight when I get home!

Just a warning - some of the 3 3/4" figures at Farmers are ringing up with the general 25% off discount (making them $13.49) instead of the advertised $11.99 deal. A quick mention of this at the counter will see staff reduce them down to the latter price however :)

Hawera Warehouse's Force Friday II was limited to a very poor endcap display (sabers, masks, Force Link sets, 3 3/4 TIE Silencers) and two 12" figures in the normal spot. Nil porg!

Were there any giveaway raffle or spot prize things locally? On Twitter I saw one guy win a Sphero R2 and a bunch of people - at Targets - winning the giant plush porgs.

I'll be back in the US this time next week, so it'll be interesting to check out the stock situation over there!

Nothing on that scale that I heard of, but we scored a few of these as freebies at Toyco last night when buying stuff, and the first 3 people through the door got "Shirtless Darth Maul" Lego minifigures too.

And Toyco are also drawing a random winner for this prize pack in a little over a week's time.
