    Hi, sorry, I’d already promised my swaps elsewhere, I’m afraid.

    Alright, lads! I need your opinion! Since all the stores in my area no longer carry botbots, I'm going to need to use the online stores to grab those that I want in wave 3. So after checking those wanted, I learned that I only need three sets of both playroom posse and googoo groupies.

    My problem. Should I risk grabbing only three of each on Amazon, or grab 4 and hope they just send me the entire shipment?

    Anyone want an Arcade Renegades set 1? I'm in need of the Siege Micromaster 10-pack. (I may need to add cash?)

    My recommendation:
    -Since the 8-packs have been out longer, it'd probably be more economical for you to buy singles and/or whole Goo Goo Groupies packs off of sellers on eBay, if you can't find what you want in the B/S/T thread. You're paying a slight markup, but you're guaranteed to get the packs you need.
    -For the Playroom Posse, you should definitely order at least 4. Maybe 5 from Amazon.

    In Taiwan we got lots of series 1 (at ToysRus, at a few other go-to toy shops)

    Series 1.5 Bakery Bytes we’re first found at a warehouse sale (put on by THE distributor for Taiwan). Not found at TrU.

    Series 2, I found singles at a few locations of one toy store chain. No 5-packs or 8-packs. Nothing at TrU — they still have series one to sell.

    Then, Series 1.5 Lawn League showed up at TrU, and mixed in (and often slightly marked down) with the remaining regular Series 1 packs.

    Series 3, I chanced upon one box of singles at only one branch of an expensive high-end shopping mall toy store. (Saw only one Series 2 5-pack here — the only multi-pack from Series 2 I’ve ever seen)

    I haven't checked here in Mainland China (I live in Guangzhou) but in the past we got series 2 in May or June so I'm imagining we won't get 3 until October.
