    I grabbed a Worlds Collide from
    Uptown a week or two ago, for a UK friend. Haven’t seen Bee though. And I got Sparkless and Red Alert online to avoid the hassle. I rarely hunt anymore. It’s all online preorders.

    Sounds good. Sparkless Seeker and Red Alert are low level wants, if i see them and have the funds. Worlds Collide and Origin Bee are must haves. I'll keep looking and maybe luck out. I did pick up a HISS III from Wyoming Walmart last night. Going to use a Reprolabels G1 Soundwave sticker set to make a crossover. Eventually I may track down a spare set of G1 weapons to change the cannons. I'll post picks when I get around to doing it.

    Finally! Happened to check the Target app for Worlds Collide set. It showed 1 in store at Rio Rancho. I secured it for pick up and got it . Awesome set! Now having this Nemesis Primal in hand makes me want T-Wrex to have them as rivals! Now I need to find Origin Bee .

    Found the whole line of the reissue Beast Wars toys today. I didn't realize that the packaging for all of them are really oversized.

    Please list locations when you report sightings. Listing the locations can help other collectors know where to go or not to go. Thank you.

    Stopped at the Rio Rancho Walmart today. Saw 4-5 Kingdom Megatrons, and 3 BW Vintage Megatron, also 3 Rattraps, and 1 Cheetor, nothing else really worth mentioning. Almost bit on the BW Megs, but I have not culled my collection yet, but getting closer.

    Thinking about getting into Gundam, but that may be another slippery slope.

    Thats my story with Lego. Started with poly bags when I didn't find any Transformers. Then blind bag minifigures. Then crazy Walmart clearance prices. Now I have more then my other secondary collections. Thats why I try my hardest to stay away from Star Wars.

    About 10 years ago I sold my Lego collection and used part of the money to buy a project land cruiser. It was awesome, it would go anywhere, it only stopped for gas stations and banks. Wound up selling it for way more money than I put it into it, and used the cash as a down for a Jeep for my wife, that she drove for like 6 years. No more Legos after that. MOTU Mega Construx is another story.

    Stars wars is easy if you do not order online. You cannot find any at retail. But man I want that fancy pants Razor's Crest.

    Dude, tell me about it! I skipped out on Classics/Origins just to focus on this. Missed out on Castle Greyskull, but I honestly wouldn't have room for it as things are now. Glad to hear that your Lego paid for Land Cruiser and later a Jeep. Its good to hear some things retain value. I hate when I'm trying to buy a figure its like 2 or 3 times retail, but when I sell it its $2 or $3... that's why most of the time I just keep it because I see more value in it than that. We'll see when space becomes an issue.

    Also got in Tricranius, SG Blurr, and Road Rage. All cool. I wound up getting lucky with Road Rage's legs. The left shin pops out most of the time but she still stands good. I considered getting a second 1 for SG Tracks. Maybe...

    Screenshot_20211017-053454_Target.jpg Alright! Baroness showed up on the Target app for online purchase plus circle had an offer for 25% off a single toy purchase. Got it shipped for $32! They have it show up as "only 1 left". I guess thats how they prevent scalpers. First time is sold out on me before I checked out. But another showed up in like 15 minutues. Hopefully they get more Origin Bees in stock like this.

    Cool, I notice that the app says they are in stock at Rio Rancho Target as well. Hopefully they'll show up at Uptown or Eubank. Thanks for the heads up.
