    Target in AV put the Disney Plus wave out a day early. No Bucky or Wanda for anyone who cares. All the Joes are gone and the TF selection is the same old.

    There's also no T-Wrecks in stock (or in back) that their system could find. Maybe tomorrow?

    I appreciate that. I’m good though. I have one on pre-order if I don’t find one in the Wild.

    I'm curious here what everyone here collects if anything other than Transformers.

    Aside from Transformers, I collect Marvel Legends (the non-MCU ones anyway), NECA TMNT (mostly the cartoon stuff now since movie stuff is almost done), G.I.Joe Classified, and Power Rangers Lightning Collection. I was going to maybe collect the Master of the Universe Origins line, but wave 2 somehow completely missed the stores and the line went right to wave 3, and...just don't need any more toylines to collect. LOL

    I was really big on collecting Star Wars for years. I’ve picked up a few Black Series, mostly just Jango, Boba, Mandalorian stuff.

    I also like the Helmets and Force FX sabres, though I feel Hasbro just keeps re-releasing and bumping up the price. I preferred the old style stands and sure, they came out with Sidious’s lightsaber but when are we going to get a Qui-Gon one? With the price jacking, changing colors, removable blades, they’ve priced themselves at 3P levels. Third party has a lot of custom options at those prices.

    I buy Marvel Legends. I’m selective about it though. I don’t buy whole waves.

    I randomly pick up Hot Wheels here and there. Especially muscle cars from the 60’s and 70’s, or Corvettes.

    Loved the MOTU 200X line. When it was cancelled I sold off most of the collection. It was almost impossible to collect with 7 He-Man and 1 of another character per case. There’s still characters I’ve never seen unless you’re willing to pay $90 on eBay.

    G.I. Joe is cool. I have some older ones, 25th Anniversary ones, and even some classified but they were so hard to find. The ones I did get have beautiful sculpts and articulation, but in spite of that I find them very difficult to pose.

    I have some revoltech, Gundam, McFarlane figures, other odds and ends.

    For me it’s more quality than quantity at this point. Transformers is really the only exception where I buy most of what’s released. Even then it’s not going on a shelf unless it’s third party simply because I don’t have the room to display all of it.

    EDIT: I’ll pick up Neca stuff once in awhile too. Their stuff looks good but it’s another where I have difficulty posing the figures.

    Anyone have Super 7 Ultimates? I’ve been interested in their Ninja Turtles stuff. Looks really good.

    LEGO and anime figures. I used to collect movies and anime etc on DVD/BD, but I've gone digital now so mostly I just collect hard drives instead...

    Happy Wrecks Day to all who observe it.

    I don't really "collect" anything else, so much as I occasionally buy other stuff that interests me.

    For example, I'm not a PR collector. But I do have the original Thunderzords, Dino Thunder, and Dino Charge, plus the Mystic Titan.

    I also recently imported the latest Zenkaiger mech, and bought an eBay lot of the Zyuohger mech. Like, a whole zoo of cubes.

    Besides the dino mech, a good Final Combo catches my eye. And that's what did it for Zyuohger. Look at this!

    I collect mecha in general. I have a mugenbine collection that's basically complete (just missing some obscure recolors), as well as plenty of Gundam models, zords, z-bots, and random robot figures/models from other series. Aside from that, I collect virtual pets, mostly Tamagotchis and Digimon (which is doubly cool at the moment since those are in a bit of an upswing again).

    I also collect Lego, specifically the superhero, technic, speed champions, and the creator series of large realistic cars. I also collect marvel legends and various import/high end 6 inch scale marvel and DC figures, Mezco is my favorite company for that with SH Figuarts coming in a close second. I collect various series of diecast cars, mostly hot wheels. In non toy stuff, I collect knives, guitars, and watches.

    I really need cheaper hobbies...

    Sadly the collectibles are the cheap hobby.

    When my wife goes to the casino and Michaels it can be just as spendy.

    I have friends who spend more on their tats and customizing their Harleys.

    Thanks for helping me feel like I did a sketchy drug deal in a Target parking lot today!

    Well, I pre-ordered the Sideswipe/Skywarp 2-pack off Amazon, so now I have 2 Amazon sets coming around November.

    I do wish Sidewipe came with a spoiler, but Nonref can supply that as they did for my Siege Sideswipe. Plus I love how his vehicle mode more closely resembles Earthrise Sunstreaker now.

    But yeah...so I may have the 2 Beast Wars figures for sale when the sets arrive. If anyone just wants the Grimlock and Skywarp...

    At both EE and BBTS, how do you get the mods attention so they can make a post of that and I get credit.
    It must’ve dropped with Rex

    I saw that too when I cancelled my Dormammu preorder.

    I didn’t see Wrecks at any Targets though. Thought that was a Target exclusive.
