    I collect them very casually for my son. I'm not interested in spending the kind of money it would take to be a completionist.

    So, Target here is being slow, only putting out 3 at a time and refusing to go get any more until "scheduled refreshes" at 1 and 3pm.

    Need some help sorting things out into Keep, Maybe or Return... here's what I found between two stores. I'm identifying packs by the two "named team member" bots, ex for a Squeezes pack Sensei Spiney and Avocando.

    5-packs:
    ->Season Greeters - all four
    ->Playroom Posse - Quackles & Cuddle Wuddle, Quackles & Kikmee
    8-packs: sadly, Watch That Killed Hitler-bot is still chillin' in the stockroom. :( 
    ->Fresh Squeezes: Bunches & Avocando, Sensei Spiny & Trend Blend, Smerg the Sad & Avocando
    ->Goo-Goo Groupies: Crib Watch & Nampy, Shushifier & Bottle O'Tears

    Post up your list, and if 10% gas-money and other overhead expenses is acceptable to you I'll see what I can do here. We got tons of 'em shelfwarming, which is why Target's only putting out three Wave 3's at a time.

    Haha! "Interesting" is not quite word I'd use but it is a treat finding what you're looking for.

    Yep.

    It seems enticing enough to buy a set and just sell/trade the extras, but everyone does that, so you just get stuck with loads of unwanted toys you can't get rid of. Meh.

    so of course after I order from amazon one of the targets here puts out some wave 3 8packs...unfortunately none of them really help me much, as the key pack that includes Nanny wasn't there and the others I don't have are a lot of doubles...one pack would give me five new molds but most of those are avail in the 5packs...

    it would greatly help if I could get those in hand to decide which to keep...so I guess I'm holding onto them until the amazon order comes in and fingers crossed...

    I ordered two Goo-Goo Groupies 8 Packs off Amazon, thinking, “Theres only a 25% chance of me getting the one that isn’t recommended, right?” I got the one that wasn’t recommended. :/
