With all of these vehicles and playsets Jazwares is clearly becoming THE mass marketing 1:18 scale toy company.

(Plus, have you SEEN some of the new HALO offerings? There's a bloody 1:18 mecha for Pete's sake!)

Grabbed Meowcles 2 pack playset in Indiana, also the Kit Lama and Unpeely wave (in Indiana too). Missouri had all the new Target multifigure sets, but did not pick those up. (Was on vacation, otherwise I would have grabbed more lol.) These new waves rock. So many animal and food characters.

I may be late reporting, but the holiday themed three pack was at my local Target, I don’t know if you are counting that as part of the Target sets or not, but just in case.

I snagged Kit and his/her Botcycle, and the Food Dudes 4pack. I've already taken it apart and made mods with a few more planned. I want to find a weapon I can plug onto the waist ball so the legs can be an autonomous weapon station while Kit rides the cycle around.

There is technically a ball waist but the ball is so buried in the tire it only swivels. Definitely heat the tire before pulling it off, and trim-widen the socket a bit if you want to keep it swappable. I made the circle a diamond-oval and it still fits securely. They first designed it so the wheel would roll but I've found the weight of the legs makes that joint floppy. So they engineered in a key&lock plug on the top of the tire and the underside of the gas tank. Once I pulled it all apart and trimmed the key-plug off the tire the original wheel axle spins fine to allow the wheel to roll in detached-cycle mode or act as the torso abcrunch in combined-bot mode. I plan to glue the axle to the wheel and allow the soft plastic of the cycle frame grabbing the axle at either side be where the axle spins. As the axle is hard plastic along with the wheel they don't have any real friction like the soft plastic frame grabbing the hard axle does.

The elbow pegs aren't quite long enough and the inside flap keeps popping off the peg; I'll likely have to glue it in place. I want to make the arms swappable but they designed the shoulder insert piece such that the loop will pop before the peg will pull out, even with heating it didn't want to come out properly and I had to use Nature's Pliers to bite on it securely. I'm gonna see if I can rig some of the pop'em joints from a spare MTF exo-frame in there.

The actual Kit kitty is uesless to me as the body is no-ticulated and the head is too cartoony. I was planning to see if I can get a custom Mega figure cat-dude in there but BBTS conveniently let me know my Chitocerium cat in in-bound shortly so I'll wait to see if that cat can work as the pilot instead.
