Saw another set at local store for over $900 technic set motors and all. it was a big re curved arm excavator its bigger than that gray one that they are touting online currently. is there a reason am seeing that one when I can’t find it anywhere online and the most expensive ones online don’t even come close?

I been drooling over the technic set but am unable to find it elsewhere. can someone please explain how I am seeing sets in local brick and mortar that can’t be found online?

Is there a collection only accessible by the super rich?
