    Dr Flicker has the manic smile of a pyromaniac, LOL! She and Cindersaur would get on well.
    I like to think Reptilin' Sleepstylin' is the cool stylish grandpa to Nampy's crochety old "get off my lawn" grandpa, and they go on a mall-wide bucket list adventure. :D

    Why not check the Botbot sell/trade thread? Or avail yourself of the many online sources selling these things right now? Amazon, Entertainment Earth, even Collecticon should have a few series five singles left. I’ll vouch for the guy - he delivers. You’d probably have more success with a less passive approach.

    image.jpg I just got my order of 8 packs, got the one with Game Golder. Very happy with Ranger Lampton

    Also, characters on the left side( from lunchador to crabby granny as reference) are up for trade and sale. I will do 3 of mine for one of yours on series 5 only. I’m done 1-3 so I don’t need any of those. Please pm me if you’re interested, as I also have multiple other series 4 guys, series 1-3, and 1.5

    Amazon? If they do have series 5 there, even if it’s just preorder, can you or someone else post the page to get there? Thanks so much

    Alright lads. I got myself and extra Claw Machine #2 with THE COBBLER in it hoping to find a home! Any of you guys want it? if not, they'll be returned at the end of the week.

    Series five will probably be pretty tough to find at this point, only a few of them trickled out. Suppliers say that the proper time to expect them is in April. Oniconvoy posted a Collecticon link above, looks like he has a few singles left and a pack or two.

    Was fiddling with this one last night, and it occurred to me that Tidy Trunksky would make a pretty fantastic fridge repaint?

    Just don’t paint the wheels. I mean, if a stick of deodorant can be a tombstone, this is probably one that can work out.

    Nice! I've been told that my local Targets won't be getting any restock until the last deadstock are gone... the district managers prefer to keep the urban stores well stocked and the ones out in the sticks rather lean.

    I'm hoping Target's BOGO sale clears out the old Series 3 that are hanging around.

    I hope so. I’m still waiting for the Series 4 five-packs and blindpacks to appear at retail.

    Vector, take a look at my post in Botbot Barter and see if you want any of my extras before they go back to Amazon. :)

    Ditto here, Series 4 will finally be complete for me soon... (Also I am just really looking forward to Pressure Punk. I have a feeling she'll be one of my faves.)

    Yes its a similar situation with ARGOS in the UK - they have so many Orange Bubble that even with the sales they can't shift they very quickly & even if they did sell out they likely have a ton of them still in the supply chain left anyway. It doesn't help that Sainsbury's decided to stop selling the 5 packs either. I may even up having to just shrug and see if I can order cases if they don't show up before to long.

    That chocolate cake has such a trollface-graffiti face! I do wish the underside of the cake was chocolate though, too.
