    Went into Atlantic Avenue Target as it opened. Toy aisle was swamped with other collectors/potential scalpers/resellers.

    No Worlds Collide pack. 2 Origin Bumblebees left

    Went to Greece, Chili, and Henrietta Targets this morning. Greece and chili had few T-Wrecks, but nothing else. Henrietta hada nada. Greece told me they had the origins Bee in the store but "the truck just came in and its all full back there"...aka I don't want to look. Worlds collide supposedly set to come in later this week. Who knows.

    Would anyone be willing to sell me the Fangry from their Worlds Collide set or no?

    No. I asked in a different thread and the one given doesn’t work.

    Anyone in NYC curious about target in E Harlem don’t bother - was there earlier today and the aisle looked ransacked. Oddly enough there were 5 god skeletors neatly stacked amidst the almost empty shelves...

    Also, did they get them shipped from Target.com, or are they coming from the stores? That's a pretty important distinction

    Granted, I suspect none of us will ever see this set: scalpers have smelled blood, every toy line is Hot Wheels now

    From what I read, they got them to ship to their homes. Looks like only 3 or 4 though.

    Makes me glad I just got Galvatron even with the wrong shoulders instead of waiting for a correct shoulder find

    Right. An example is Utica Walmart which put Studio Series Leaders on clearance in January for $15.20. Haven’t restocked since.
