    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.

    Got my S5 8-packs from Entertainment Earth and the S5 5-packs from Collecticon Toys today. The lumberjack boot and the bell jar are my favourites so far. Of the repaints, I love the deco on the lawnmower. Digital camo, wild stare... I bet they saw some strange things back in ‘Nam.

    The crib, the apple and the meat grinder/pencil sharpener continue to be terrible moulds, though.

    Still waiting on the S4 8-packs and 5-packs (both preordered from EE), the S5 singles (ordered from eBay), and the S5 Cardio Clique 5-packs (preordered from Collecticon), so in a few days time I should be done with S4 and S5. Then I can wait until August to do it all again for S6!!!

    Also found series 4 8 packs at local target. They were doing buy one get one 50% off so I think I really scored this time. Just wish they had the 5 packs too.

    “Look how they massacred my boy.”

    I feel like there’s zero chance someone hasn’t already done these Godfather bits with the guy, but I didn’t know this thread existed until series three, so I missed out on them.

    Like many, I’m finally seeing series four on pegs here, but Amazon already took care of most of my needs there. Like three dudes left that I need, and then I rest. Until April.

    Found a single series 5 five pack at my local target in MN. Never did see series 4 five packs at retail. It was not a recommended buy, guessing I have local competition lol.

    Looks like target skipped the 5 packs. Singles, well we'll see what shows up after the series 3 ones sell through. My closest one has about two cases worth on the end cap...
