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!

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.

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.
