    Funny story, remember when I order eight of each of the series 3 five packs? Well guess what? None of them were the Grave Rave sets. Yayy...

    Not remotely. It's a drawing on a slide shown almost a year ago that looks like it was cut from the commercial.

    Today was the first time I’ve seen any indication that Series 3 singles and Series 2 multi-packs made it to Taiwan at all!
    (Only saw that one 5-pack though)

    I rarely go to Sogo on the hunt because it’s always more expensive.
    Singles NT$149 (US$4.74; CAD$6.31)
    5-pack NT$549 (US$17.45; CAD$23.25)

    I picked up a #12 Axwell, and a #16 Quackles! But didn’t find a #10 Calamity Keys.

    Also, spotted the big arcade pack at a Funbox store the other day:

    I think I saw some randomly around a couple months ago at Target but certainly not recently

    in fact I'm certain I did but remembered passing on them because there were only a handful out and I was getting a case

    Definitely not trying to complete anything, but I’m still surprised by how many of these little buggers that I’ve wound up with.

    Thrilled to have found the Arcade Renegades set #6 the other week, I wouldn’t have bought it if I was going to get 4 doubles. As a gamer and a rider, Driver Ted is my favourite. He gets an honorary spot in my Bike-Bots side collection. E8289068-9F34-47BE-8864-CDA651EE0AFB.jpeg 0A472AE4-4AF2-40C2-957D-33D882D72752.jpeg

    From what I can see from reports on here, Targets are the only stores to have any out. I havn't read a single report of them being in a wal-mart or other stores yet, and some people have said their wal-marts also will not carry them anymore.....so its up in the air right now.
