    Alright. I didn't release they didn't make four of each set like they normally do. It's 3, 3, and 2. Guess I have all the five packs and then some.

    Guys, I have a buddy who owes me a favor up in Canada who's gonna hit his TRU looking for Lawn League. How many packs do I need to hit him up for? Bear in mind, getting the good pack with all three missing figs is a crapshoot...

    Do they have Lawn League packs in Canada? I thought they just had the Bakery Bytes there...

    ...Well, if he does, put me down for 2. I think that's good odds one of them will be the good one.

    I thought this too, unless there have been some recent sightings that I’m unaware of. AIUI the 8-packs have only ever been seen in the Far East (Hong Kong, Taiwan etc.).

    Thought I had seen a reported sighting on LL up there--anyway, won't know on timing until we know what the results are on finding, in my experience getting from Toronto to Seattle is at least a week, more if Customs dweebs get nosy. Then there's time to rustle up a box and get things mailed, so... definitely not before Christmas even if this DOES happen, probably not before New Years, but at least you'll know exactly where every dollar of your final cost is going between acquisition, international shipment, domestic shipment and Paypal fees.

    I just got my five packs. I got two of the same for the Magic Tricksters. Both of them had the same blind-bubble bot. We are free from the chase figures another day.

    Edit: I just noticed there’s numbers etched in the bottom right corner of the boxes.

    Yeah I can give you the whole pack. I just don’t know how to do that.

    I got two of the same too-- for the Home Rangers. (And no, it's not the one with Goldie Rock.) This despite the fact I only ordered 2 of them. Ugh.

    If anyone wants to trade me a pack with Goldie Rock for a Home Rangers pack with the Iron, I'm in.

    Hey guys/gals! So I posted a page back or so my niece surprised me with a Blind pack and I got the Coffee maker T-Rex and I was just curious how much it went for on eBay and saw it for a BIN of $30! So that made me think is that accurate or that seller is price gouging? Also What is the most expensive/rare single BotBots out there?? Thanks in advance and if anyone is wondering I'm NOT selling my T-Rex as it has sentimental value to me that my Niece got it for me. Cheers!

    Javasaurus Rex IS one of the most-desired of the Series 2 toys, but it's 1 per case of single-packs, just like any others. That said, $30 for ANY single Botbot is severe price-gouging.

    I also suspect that with its redeco Roarista starting to come out, it will become less valuable.

    Do we know yet how many versions there are of the claw and gumball machine packs? I suspect not yet but figured I'd ask. I'd feel pretty stupid ordering 2 of each and discover there is only one version.
