    Honestly I think, in terms of money, it'll be easier to get the BotBots Con Exclusive pack (one single pack of 10, no blind-balled) versus getting the complete Arcade Renegades.

    Hasbro's pretty slick to say "190+" to collect in 2019 on the retail packages. That means they can release all they want, even gratuitous exclusives and still be covered under that language.

    Remember when there were only 61 to collect in series 1? Sigh...

    Well, I'm hoping my local Meijer is about to put out the Wave 2 single packs, which I've still never seen anywhere. The display box of W1 singles that they've had forever was gone last night and the remaining singles hung on random pegs. My local Walmart still has nothing but W1 everything, and they don't seem to be selling. No hope of any W2 showing up there any time soon.

    Wave 2 8-packs sighted at Target again! Different store than where I returned my five leftovers, looked like a full case racked up.

    I was a bit bummed. I was gonna get the pack with the Keytar too, but it said item not found.

    I'm getting Dumbeats and she's getting Dizzy Bones, Steve-from-accounting, Outta Control and Rebugnant. Hopefully I'll grab the keytar next time.

    You're lucky. I can still find my local TRU.
    It still has all the signage up, even though they closed months ago.
    Still there, taunting me with its splendor, and yet never open...
    An empty edifice, mocking the children passing by with promises of endless aisles of mirth, children who will never experience the wonder formerly contained within...

    *AHEM* Sorry, I digress.

    I left my Toys R Us right here, I swear. Did someone else pick it up and walk off with it?
    Mine became a sports store. I guess that's kind of like what they used to sell...

    Does it ever have the temptation to jump into a World War I biplane and fight Snoopy?

    I don't always spell good. But when I do it means I was drinking and was trying harder to seem sober.
