The store by me has never gotten a restock on any series that they've sold out of. They sold out of Robots in a single week, and since then have not received any more. Ditto Urban 7. It's very disappointing.
I really love Salvage Bot, but traded him away for a Jafar chaser - been hoping he'd come back into stock online, but it seems unlikely.
The nearest Disney Stores in my area have not had them for awhile, but if I drive farther away, I tend to find them. I think that's part of being in SoCal... they just seem to be so popular here. Still, the distribution is pretty wonky amongst the stores from what I hear. I assume each store receives stock based on sales and popularity, so that probably factors in as well. I went into a store the other day (not local) that still had plenty of 9"Rafiki and Simba combos. Go figure.
So I gave in and bought my first two Robots boxes. Got Ignition Bot and... Radio Bot!! So glad to get the one I was looking at the most!
Now I'm hoping to get a few others when I go to the Seminole Town Mall (first time!) Saturday. But is it true that Robots is now a retired series? Hope not...
Finally Completed my set!!! The only one I was missing was communication bot....and i refuse to buy more blind boxes so i got it off ebay and it arrived in great conditions!!!!!
I've got a whole set minus the chaser, and no one wants anything to do with it. This was the first set I got really excited about, and the first set I completed, but I'm a little sad that it seems like no one else likes it...
I like this set. When I first saw it, I was going to pass on it. But, then when ds.com had a sale awhile ago, I got a tray. I'm keeping this set. They look great, all together, in person.
Honestly, I'm still kicking myself that I didn't pick up a tray just to use as cheap traders for the park.
The Disney store near me has the 9 inch for $25. I got the reflector bot, but I'm not so crazy about the other two. Still, I think I should pick them up to complete the collection and they are at such a good price...
Blind boxed a radio bot on first try. Good feeling
I pulled the trigger picking up a whole set + chaser from ebay. They are going for really cheap. Why does there seem to be such a disregard for this set? I feel that it's better than some urban series with the artwork... and they're all ROBOTS!
