Seeing how it drives a lot of you into multiple buying frenzies and increases their sales, I would bet on it.  I'm sure they'll stick with what works.

I found Series 2 to be much less annoying, and am hoping that Series 3 will continue in the same vein.  I am hoping for a Mallowmartians, and I think a Chimpeata would be fantastic!

Hoping series 3 will have more iconic vintage Wackies like Tied Detergent, Crakola Crayons, Chock Full of Nuts, etc.

Raw Goo, anyone? 

It's too bad that we'll never get the tobacco or alcohol titles.  They've done a bunch of my favorite early titles already, but I agree, Tied should be in Series 3, along with All Brain, Kook Aid, Dopey Whip, Mutts, Drowney, and Hawaiian Punks.  L'oggs would probably be a cool mini.  Other odd shapes could include Bit-o-money and Footsie Roll.

Yeah, it kind of did.. LOL. The issue I have with that distribution model is that you can only get certain minis via certain outlets and you end up with hundreds of commons. I am not going to buy into it this time. Gonna buy all the commons as a set and finish the collection by trading and buying some on eBay.

Wow!  Monumental is the right word!  All I did was get one of each of the old school stickers (no matter what type it was) and a handful of the new school stickers that I liked.  I'm still trying to finish off series 2 with that same idea in mind.  Anyone got an extra Toad and/or Windhex sticker they'd sell/trade?

Those of us in the real world know how marketing works:

An interoffice softball game was held every year between the company's marketing and sales staff.  The sales staff whipped the marketing department soundly 10 to 1. But the marketing department showed how they earn their keep by posting this memo on the bulletin board after the game:

"The marketing department is pleased to announce that during the 2020 softball season we came in 2nd place, having lost just one game all year! The sales staff, however, had a rather dismal season, finishing next to last while winning only one game."

I did too. At least the rares were title variations (sparkle, black tops, gold) I would still go after but not feel as bad as when the chase is a unique title. If they continue that model, it also gives you a pretty good idea how much you would be shelling out for a complete base mini and sticker set.

I know that Ser 1 and 2 made a lot of people think twice about buying anymore of them, but all I have to say about Ser 3 is it better be out next month and the colation must be better.

I know that Ser 1 and 2 made a lot of people think twice about buying anymore of them, but all I have to say about Ser 3 is it better be out next month and the colation must be better.

Why the immediate need for Series 3?  We're going to be busy with November and December monthly Wackys, plus Old School!  My wallet can use a rest.  The minis are probably stuck at a port or in a warehouse somewhere, in holiday rush season.

I doubt that they will do anything different with collation - it seems to be their SOP to give each major vendor their own exclusive "common" pieces.  I just hope they stick with the series 2 model where the "rare" pieces are color variations of common pieces.

Slightly off topic: I had very few trick-or-treaters this year, but there was a pair of girls about 11 years old who were beyond thrilled with the minis I gave them.  Wish I had given each of them a box full but they caught me by surprise!

Alright Friends, I know people lie, and some of you have been lied to by Super Impulse, but on a lark, I just shot off an e-mail to their faceless, nameless e-mail address that is listed on their website, asking when Series 3 will hit stores. The reply I got was "around Dec. 15" followed by a smiling emoji. At least that is not (very) vague. I believe them because I want it to be true. If this really happens, do your Christmas shopping accordingly.....

So they went in a different direction with this release and went back to having the rares be unique titles like they did with series 1. This will make the rares more valuable since you need them to have a complete collection of titles. The rares were clear sparkle in series 2 and many people didn't bother collecting them.
No sign of a gold rare which is a good thing also. We have not seen the other side of the checklist yet right? More info may be forthcoming.

It seems to me the word "rare" is a meaningless one in Super Impulse world.  I mean, we had "rares" like Minute Mud and Ebayer in series 1.  We had a clear and red sparkles, the "walmart 4", ones unique to multipacks, gold, and who knows what else in series 2.  I just want to get at least one of each unique title.

Rare lately has meant two rares per 24 count case. The rares were 1 per 48 cups in series 1. They are 1 per 12 cups in series 2. Time will tell what the ratio is in series 3.   "Really rares" were one per 72 cups in series 2.

So.... if Series 3 minis are actually out in two weeks, what are people's strategies? Buy a whole case to get the rares? It would need to be an unopened case to ensure distribution, right? Buy some from Target, some from Wal Mart? I have seen them at Five Below here, but that is well after initial release...I had pretty good luck buying doubles from you guys and on e-bay for First two series, but my kid and I would LOVE to open blind boxes...

For series 2, I purchase one of the 24 cup boxes from ToyWiz.com and started that way. Did some trading and purchased some additional cups from Walmart to get other stickers. Then kind of wait until the multi-piece boxes start being available in Amazon to try to finish things off.

I'm torn between jumping right in and waiting things out a bit.  But I'll probably buy a (unopened/untouched if I can) box of 24 cups initially and see how things play out.  I would hope, and I realize this is a longshot, that all the minis are available in the first/only wave.  But I am encouraged by what seems like most will be old school titles, though I know that's not confirmed and seems like it doesn't make sense given the first two series.
Title: Re: Series 3 Minis
Post by: DrDeal on December 02, 2021, 03:02:21 PM
I will probably buy a few boxes when they hit as there will be 4 different sticker case configurations if they do it like in the past.
I will sell off dupe mini's and keep the stickers.

I hope a few of the ones I want are on the top that you can see in the window - mainly titles like Tied Detergent and a few other iconic ones. Hopefully SI is correct and we will sell reports in a few weeks! I take it these are produced in the US and not overseas to be delayed on the docks.

Not to interrupt the upcoming Series 3 reports and discussion, but I found this auction listing online for a 1930s jewelry set with charms that look like vintage minis. Of course, these are the real products, but imagine if a future Old School set has parodies of these packages!

Damn us all for being so desperate and gullible during Covid… Obviously their marketing department is going with the "Tell them whatever they want to hear" theory of marketing. The thing is, that will work once or twice, then we will all hate them. But, they are the ONLY source for minis, and it sounds like we are 10 months away from a Topps retail series release, so I guess we have to put up with them...No one wants to hear how the sausage is made, but am I to understand they are in Pennsylvania, they got the rights from Topps, selected which titles to make, copied already done artwork, and then outsourced production to China? Exactly what value did SI add???

Thanks for the heads up!  That is a nice pic.  I'm glad to see that there seem to be only old school titles.  I do like some of the ANS titles (though I think they generally did a poor job of choosing ANS titles for the first two series), but would prefer all old school titles than a 50-50 mix. 

Someone on a FB page said they heard the Wackys wouldn't be out until mid January.  But I have no idea if that person has reliable info or not.

While they bizarrely show the same Series 1 minis in the box window, the rest shows a pretty good array of the actual set.
And the insert image shows the rares in the upper portion, with the red tops, black tops, and a silver Bar Kist

But based on this image, the rares might be different colored tops. I would like that better. Everyone wants to get all of the titles without buying case after case after case...

I thought that those series 1 minis in the box window was surely bizarre as well!  And good eye on those rares.  I'm just hoping to get each title and hope the rare versions come in "regular" ones as well.  For what it's worth, I asked SI on their Facebook page when and where I could expect to purchase these, and they just responded with a generic comment about staying tuned to their social media for more details.  I can't imagine they don't have a date in mind, but little that company does surprises me.

I did not get all of the series 1 titles, but I think I did end up with Jail-O, which was the one I most wanted.  I don't think I got any of the rare New Skool titles and may or may not have gotten any other (besides Jail-O) of the rare Old Skool titles. 

Series 2, IMO, was about a wash compared to series 1 in terms of transparency.  So, not great.  But at least it was easier to get all the unique titles (not counting red and black and sparkley variations) than series 1.  I'll definitely be more cautious in my series 3 buying, but I am still excited to find and open the series 3 tubs.

Series 2 put a few regular mini titles ONLY in the multipacks; which made it expensive to acquire them. FIB was only on 20 packs.

After reading your post that Jerkens was available only in the 10 packs, I ordered 2 from Amazon, in hopes of a "lottery"-type score.   They came today, and the packaging on both of them had a lot of creases, not only in the cardboard but in the plastic.   One package had the original Amazon bar code ripped off (with residue remaining), and an "LPN RRxxnnn NNNN" bar code sticker on the side, and the other package had the LPN bar code sticker on top of the original Amazon bar code.   Both packages looked like they had been kicked around the floor a few times, with scuffs and the aforementioned creases.

A little internet snooping, and I learned that the LPN RR bar code means that the item was RETURNED to Amazon and RESOLD as "new". 

"Infuriated" is an understatement to how I felt.

Obviously another wacky pack collector (or dealer) bought a slew of these, carefully cherry-picked titles, without damaging the packaging too much, and returned the unneeded titles back to Amazon.   How slimy can a person get?   Fortunately, Amazon made good and refunded my purchase when I contacted them and explained the situation.

If SI is going to continue this nonsense of only making certain titles available ONLY in blister packs, they need to work with Amazon to limit the quantity per customer (not quantity per purchase, but quantity per CUSTOMER and/or address).

PS.  I was able to get a Fib mini from a very dear friend.

PPS.  I asked the Amazon rep if I could return these items and have them replaced with NEW items that had not been returned.  I don't know how extensive their search was (I was on hold for quite a while), or even if they could search such a thing, but they were not able to replace my items with guaranteed-new-and-not-returned items.

I will hit a few Targets today.  Most Targets have their Card sections replenished on Mon Tues or Wed depending on the Excel Rep's Route. They do about three stores per day spending around two hours in each store.

I love the simple plastic case with the handle! But $29.99 seems like a lot, if these were $9.99 or so, I'd but 6 or 8 of them. I used these display frames from Michaels for the first series.

https://www.michaels.com/studio-decor-coin-display-case/10224309.html

They were perfect for fitting old school in one and new school in another and make a nice display on the wall. These display cases are the same price as the ADAME plastic storage cases, $29.99, but are felt lined and have a glass hinged door. They also often go on sale for 50% off.

I used these plastic bead storage bins for the series 2 items, but the larger items don't fit very well.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07C718QMV/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&th=1

They are a good value at $8.99. If they would have just slightly larger compartments they would be perfect. I hope the price on the ADAME cases come down. I will keep them on my Amazon want list. Thanks for the tip!

I was wondering who would get them first.  Did Target get series 1 first?  I've already forgotten.  I would think Walmart would want to be first as well and would guess they'd have more clout than Target, but who knows.  Speaking of Walmart, many that I've been to lately are ditching their traditional cash register lines for large self-service "lanes".  I wonder where the Minis will show up if there are no traditional cash register lines.

Target wants the collector sales and knows they need to be first to get those sales. Target has a much better distribution plan.  You can count on 90% of US Targets getting their first case in the same 7 day period. Walmart is not focused on maxing out sales.  Their distribution is slow and spotty. 1 out of 5 stores will get these.

Hey All,

 I actually work for Target esp. for the toy department with overnight crew pushing and stocking... I will def. keep you all posted. I know every toy I push cant be shelved or pushed until ship date .. saw that with plenty of lego packages that had to be sat on crate until shipping date is on. but this Target does not work with card department. We have a rep that comes to the store to stock up the card department in front of the store and toy dept. This rep comes to the store like once every 2 to 4 weeks... not target... esp with this store in Va.. Maybe it is different with each store ???  Loving my job and watching all the new toys, funko, and cards being released.... Fun job on the side !

Another storage option (similar to the plastic craft suitcases) for the minis is plain old Plano tackle boxes. You can move around the dividers to create different size compartments. They run $8-10. They are not as pretty as felt lined cabinets with a glass door, but are around 1/2 the price. Available at Farm and Fleet, Wal Mart, or on the Internet...

I ordered a case of series 2 from a woman, Deborah Greenough, whom I had come across on Facebook.  Not sure exactly what her "title" would be (distributor?  wholesaler?), but I got a message that she expected her order of series 3 cases to arrive by the end of the day tomorrow (Jan 20).  I plan to order a case from her, but that seems to indicate that their arrival at Target wouldn't be far behind.

I was at a freshly restocked target Card Section today. GPK Micro's were the new item. $6.99 for a trash can with 2 cards , a grocery item and a mini figure. 16 per case.

The GPK Collectors are going berserk over these on the GPK Marketplace.
They’re all buying up the entire case as soon as they find them at Meijer or Target

   I found a near full case of the GPK micros because word has it they are flying off the shelves I bought it. No rares and very few doubles, My question is are these the same as the GPK micro toys that also come with a mini sticker?

Looking at SI website, they have no listing at all fir third series and no display box shown. There IS a group shot showing all OS titles….Some great Wackys like Valveeater…Unfortunately, the six rare cans, including Mt Goo, Pupsi, have red tops, so it looks like those might be unique titles as rares, since they ate not shown with regular gray lids. If these ever come out, we will know for sure….

Aw, red cans??  Well then, maybe I won't be bothered looking for them.  At least with Series 1 the rares being pearly white worked with the chosen titles.

Just checked out the site - the Bar Kist looks great in chrome, but that is probably a "fuggetaboutit."  Not thrilled with the blue background stickers.

You can download and print out the checklist. So they are all unique titles this time. All 10 Rares are not in the main lineup. In general I not feeling the rares this time around as I do not think they look best in chase form. Seeing Pupsi with a red sparkle top is not as cool as seeing it looking like it should look with a grey top. The same for Fink with a Black Top. Ehhh. Cool to see Baked Bears as a Really Rare title. Rob would have been over the moon about that one. Last time around there were two "Rares" in each 24 cup case. There was one "Really Rare" per two 24 cup cases. Pupsi as a "Rare" will keep Mr Shoemaker busy.   They will probably release 4 of the Rares and Two of Really Rares in the first wave along with 40 - 50 of the Base titles. The stickers will have a blue background this time around.

that Bar Kist in chrome doesn't match the checklist, which says it should be a blue sparkle. Par for the course with SI posting misinformation on what they are selling.

Their earlier post on Instagram also showed that all the rare pieces were just colorways, and not unique. Now with 10 hard to find titles, and one impossible, basically no one can complete the set. SI has totally jumped the shark.

yeah, SI is really clueless. They have had images of production boxes (below) for a while now, but then for that recent Instagram they dredged up some old CGI composition that's totally wrong, showing parts of an S1 box

The minis have probably been stuck in a shipping container somewhere on the west coast for ages.  I don't feel that SI is jerking us around with delays, they will do that with the rare figures.........

What I am really upset about is buying a ton of Attacky Packages sets hoping for a bunch of killer Attacky sketches, and getting December regular sketches.  So, if Topps is delaying Old School 10 to make sure there are no similar screw ups, I am more than content to wait.

That is interesting that the S3 page is art images for the base set (although there are plastic toy images for all the rares)
They do have that other group shot that shows physical pieces for all of them. But much of their website seems haphazard.

I pre-ordered a case from a private seller and they arrived yesterday.  As mentioned in another post, no really new shapes, unless the Soda cans having a pull tab on the top counts.  I feel that many titles seemed to be the wrong shape/size.  I was really looking forward to Shrunken Donuts, but the shape is completely wrong.  And Rowdy is nearly twice the size that Jail-O was?  The wrap titles could have been a little longer.  It was cool though to immediately recognize each title, which didn't always happen when I pulled New Skool titles in Series 1 and 2.

I pulled 61 different "commons" from the cups; too early to be sure, but Killette may only be available in the display window, like Rotz was in Series 2.  I also pulled one really rare (Fibby's black) and two Rares (6-Urp and STD Oil, red sparkles).

The minis are heavy on detergent and soap.  And with so many boxes and cans, there aren't many titles you can identify by feeling the packet. 

The stickers were a big disappointment.  The blue background is distracting, but worse, they were jammed into these cups carelessly and are very bent up.  Many of the ones I pulled are popped along the kiss cut.  I got 20 different titles out of the 24 stickers.

Thanks!  I'm afraid that means there will be six "regulars" that will be quite tough to find.  I hope I'm wrong and some of those will not really be hard to find, but I fear SI's past will be present once again.

I ordered a case from a woman named Deborah in FL.  Mine has not yet arrived, but I also ordered one from her for series 2 and I did indeed get a display box and I'm sure I'll get one for series 3.  I'd pass along her info, but I believe she has no cases left.

I know we have a very limited sampling but so far (a few cases here and a handful of ebay lots), but the only titles I have not seen someone confirm as  pulled (besides the rares) are:
   Choke King
   Heavy Trash Bags
   Ivy
   Hurtz Crazy Canary Food

I pulled Choke King, Heavy Trash Bags and Hurtz Crazy Canary Food.

So it sounds like all of the commons are probably in the initial case release since that leaves only Ivy. I wonder if that means Walmart may not be carrying them this go around or at least didn't lobby for titles only available through them. Perhaps some of the rare titles will only be available only through Walmart.

I dont love wal mart’s business model….However, the good thing about Wal Mart is they are everywhere…. I dont know much about retail, but neither the Wal Mart or the Target in my medium  sized city (metropolitan area of 300,000) have a card aisle any more. Unless one of our 4 Wal Marts carries them near the registers, i will be buying them online…Nothing against the person selling on e-bay, but $5 per mini, plus $3 postage, seems awfully high…

I have a case coming and would be happy to share what I find in terms of the rares.  Anyone else willing to do that here would be greatly appreciated.  It sounds like there may only be one "regular", Ivy, that may be tough to find.  That's certainly an improvement over the previous two series.

Well, at $8 with shipping, ebay takes $1 and postage is at least $4.25, which leaves max $2.75 before you account for the bubble envelope/box and the person's time.  It works out a LOT better if you buy several pieces and can pay just the one shipping charge.

Excellent point. I suppose You folks who bought a case cannot confirm whether the retail price will be $5.99 or $6.99 per cup. If they went up a full dollar and have fewer unique shapes, seems like they just want to maximize profits…those fiends!

Well, there are more differently sized rectangles than before  ;D  Mr. Bog Bread, Broken, Creep. Fright Guard, and Windax may be the only titles identifiable by feel while in the wrapper.

We just mean that once you open a cup but before you open a pack, you can sometimes tell what title is inside by the shape/feel.  Nothing nefarious,  it was just mentioned to point to the lack of unique shapes in this series.

I left a bunch of Series 2 pieces sealed, and gave them out at Halloween.  But, I definitely opened every Windhex!  The easiest piece to identify by shape is Burden.

NO MINIs Series 3 - What is left of the S2s are still there.... hopefully Monday or Tuesday - WAS hoping to be stuck with them while stuck with this white crap coming our way......

I pulled the really rare black Fibby's from the top level cup with Hurtz Bird Seed showing.  The STD rare red sparkle was in the cup with Goonman's on top.  The cup with Creep on top included two Mrs. Small's minis.

On the lower level, the cup with Foolite on top had the rare red sparkle 6-Urp.  The cup with Argh on top included another Argh.

I'm still waiting for my case to arrive.  Should be here today or in the next day or two.

I've checked maybe one Target per day on average this week and have found nothing.  All seem to have the GPK cases at 6.99 each with none missing from them.

I did pull a Martian Hats mini.  As for lots of doubles, I thought this wasn't so bad, since I got 62 different out of 72 commons, and 3 different rares out of 10.  I've already made a trade for 4 of the commons I didn't pull, and am sure there will be more trades forthcoming.

Not a bad price and I'm tempted to buy one.  But, for only a little more, I can buy one at Target and, I'm thinking, get it sooner.  Timing is important and I wish I knew for sure when I could get a case from both.  But my assumption is Target will be quicker at this point.

Yeah, I think an artist (or someone, as Pat suggested, who might use them for plant seedlings) would be a good candidate.  Maybe at this point, I'll wait until I have a bunch of series 3 cups and try to find someone in one fell swoop who'd want them all.

I can totally see Walmart getting these in faster! The last wave of Series 2 with the Minute Mud rare was in large supply at all my Walmart stores. Every checkout lane had them on the shelf.

This must be a regional thing.   I checked Walmart's in my area (Raleigh, NC) during the Minute-Muds-Are-Here period and found nothing but old Series 1 cups on the checkout lanes.

The issue is many WalMarts have eliminated many checklanes in favor of self checkout areas. It is hit or miss to find Minis in WM's.

The case I ordered arrived today.  Have only opened 10 of the cups so far.  I'll share more observations once I get through it all, but I'm finding similar things to what Pat and Scot noted.

True Dat. Our two local Walmarts rarely (and I mean Fuggetaboutit rarely) have more than one checkout lane open that is not self-check. It seems they are trying to run people off to other stores that do grocery shopping every 2 weeks like my wife and I do. I am not going to checkout a full shopping cart containing typically $200 plus in groceries at one of those little self checks.

My second case arrived yesterday.  I didn't bother with pics for cup position because many had fallen over, and I couldn't be sure of where they started out.  But, I completed my common mini set and got 23 different stickers (15 I needed), as well as a Pupsi rare and a 6-Urp rare.  No really rare this time  :sad:

6-Urp was in a cup in the upper level with Argh as the topper, and Pupsi was in the lower level, with Breadcrust Hash as the topper.

Unfortunately, the stickers in the cups are creased and dented like the ones that we have been pulling from the Series 1 and 2 multipacks.  Some are even popped along the kiss cut.

Aside from all the commons being in this wave, 4 of 6 rares have been found, and so far 1 of 3 really rares that I know of.

6-Urp was in a cup in the upper level with Argh as the topper, and Pupsi was in the lower level, with Breadcrust Hash as the topper.

I just finished opening my case that I bought from the same source as you did, Pat.  Interestingly, I got the exact same thing you did in terms of rares (6urp out of a cup with Argh showing and Pupsi from a cup with Breadcrust showing and no "really rares" in the case).  Makes me think, once again, there may be "set" cases with little if any derivation.  I haven't collated to see how many different minis and stickers I got, but the distribution seems pretty good.  About the only other interesting thing to note is that I got two Dull stickers out of the same cup (the one with Pupsi in it) which I found to be more than coincidental and probably evidence that there are indeed cases that are exactly the same out there.

Im hoping i get a different case so I’ll have something to trade. Not much fun trading if we all get exactly the same minis. I suppose the factory/shipper puts the cups in randomly. Although if robots package the minis, it is possible cases have the exact sane minis in them….Maybe if cases are going to retail stores fir individual sales, identical cases dont matter…

The 24 count boxes usually have 3 different mixes. 2 boxes of each mix in each 6 box master case.
2 Rare Chases per 24 count box and 1 Really Rare Chase in every other 24 count box.

So far one box has STD and 6 Urp and another has 6 Urp and Pupsi.  Mtn Goo has not been seen yet. It may be in the third assortment or may be held back
for another wave.

Went to a couple Targets and a Walmart yesterday and today.  As expected, found no series 3 but did learn a couple things.

At a Walmart near my house that I don't recall ever having any series 1 or 2, I did find a few 6-packs of series 2 with some cups showing Minute Mud and Ebayer.  The checkouts at this store seem to have been totally overhauled in the last month or so.  I'm assuming the series 2 cups have arrived within the last month.  Even though there were very few traditional checkout lines, the 6-packs were in the area where the traditional checkout lanes had been pulled.  Perhaps that is where we'll find series 3 when it shows up.

Today I ran into the Excel guy at my local Target.  While he wasn't overly helpful, I was able to ask him enough questions to, well, learn very little.  He said he knew nothing about any new Wacky Minis coming.  He said he stocked all the Targets in my area, usually (always?) on Fridays, so it seems that may be the day to hit the ones near me at least.

I'm guessing it's more cluelessness than lying in that they would seem to want to tell their customers when and where they could buy these.  What would be their motivation to lie?  But perhaps cluelessness, because they don't control the supply chain or when Target and Walmart put these out, is a more accurate guess as to their seeming inability to correctly tell us when and where to buy these.  At any rate, it will certainly be interesting to see when and where we start to find these at retail.

I did pull a Martian Hats mini.  As for lots of doubles, I thought this wasn't so bad, since I got 62 different out of 72 commons, and 3 different rares out of 10.  I've already made a trade for 4 of the commons I didn't pull, and am sure there will be more trades forthcoming.

I ordered one case from Toy Wiz while I wait for my 2 cases to arrive from Rylee’s attic. I pulled all 72 commons, 2 rares and 1 really rare from the case. The rares were red sparkle 6-urp and red sparkle STD. The really rare was black top Fink. The top mini for the 6-urp  was Ducko-cement , Choke king was on top for STD, and Irish ring was on top for Black Fink (which had a 2nd Irish ring in it as well.) The 6-urp was on the top level second row, second from the left, STD was on top level third row third from the left, and Fink was on the bottom level first row fourth from the left. I hope this info helps you out. I also got 22 different stickers.
I should add my case from Toy Wiz shipped out on Wednesday and I got it on Thursday ( I live in driving distance from them).

In case anyone wants to trade for a Swiss Mess sticker, here are the extras I got in two cases.  A little distribution problem, maybe?

I could use a mini figure of Dampers and one of Ivy, and probably lots of stickers.

Not to spoil it for myself, but has anyone reported what was the topper when they pulled a Mountain Goo or a Pupsi? That way if i dint pull either from my case, i can look for them when they hit my wal mart or my target…

My Pupsi was in the lower level, with Breadcrust Hash as the topper.

The best way is to send an email to ravinylsandminis@gmail.com.  Include your zip code in the message so they can calculate shipping for you.

Thanks, I contacted them... They got back to me. Said they would hold a case if they had an extra, but didn't mention a price? I asked twice, but they never responded.

I'm guessing it's more cluelessness than lying in that they would seem to want to tell their customers when and where they could buy these.  What would be their motivation to lie?  But perhaps cluelessness, because they don't control the supply chain or when Target and Walmart put these out, is a more accurate guess as to their seeming inability to correctly tell us when and where to buy these.  At any rate, it will certainly be interesting to see when and where we start to find these at retail.
They are absolutely liars and that starts from the top with their president.  Let's not pretend otherwise.  Sending series 2 packs with ebayer and minute mud to the BBB and attorney general as evidence of providing those in series 1 when no such series 2 packs had even been unearthed is flat out manipulation.  Their president belongs in jail and I refuse to line his pockets.

I agree 100% that they are liars about things like Minute Mud and Ebayer.  I wasn't referring to that.  I was referring to their statement that series 3 is available at Walmart currently.  Why would they lie about that?  They want to sell product and have shown they would lie to do so.  However, why make that specific lie that a product is available when it's not?  Seems to me it would only hurt their chances to move product rather than help it.

I just opened one of my cases from Rylee’s attic and got a Red sparkle Pupsi in the exact location both you and Pat got yours: bottom row ( left side) with Breadcrust hash as the topper.

I pulled a Hurtz Baked Bears this morning.

3rd case:

(https://i.postimg.cc/bZYVk4jp/100-2868.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/bZYVk4jp)

Top level Choke King cup had a rare STD red mini.
Ducko Cement topper had   rare 6-Urp rare red mini.

Bottom level Irish Ring topper had  a really rare Hurtz Baked Bears black mini.

4th case:

(https://i.postimg.cc/G866jKxz/100-2869.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/G866jKxz)

(https://i.postimg.cc/mP0dJkH2/100-2870.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/mP0dJkH2)

Upper level bottom left corner Muler's topper was missing a mini.  Gotta wonder what that was supposed to be??

Stove Glop topper had a rare Dull red mini

Lower level, Mold Power topper had  really rare Libby's black mini
Sludge topper had a rare Mountain Goo red mini.

I did pretty well with stickers, and now only need 17 different stickers to complete my set.  Sadly, I did pull a Swiss Mess sticker.  I'll be posting updated trade lists, probably during the night.

Was that your second case you just opened?  I also got a Pupsi in the top left corner (Breadcrust showing) in the bottom row.  I didn't think Pat got a Pupsi, but I may have missed that comment.

And while Pat can comment on this better than I can, I thought she got a Fibby's in the top row with Hurtz showing.

Hopefully, IF we can detect the pattern and IF we could get to retail stores the first day or two minis are for sale, we could find the ones we need to complete our sets without buying case after case. Thats a lot of ifs, which is why it is crucial that we let each other know as soon as they hit stores. Just looking at the 24 toppers in my case, SI got lazy with their production. The VAST majority are the same rectangle shape or can shape. Has anyone pulled a Valveater mini yet? I just LOVE the character on that one…plus we ate Velveeta growing up…

I wanted to share my two cases from Toy Wiz. This is my second case. There was something "odd" about the box though. I already contacted Toy Wiz. It seemed "tampered" with. The box had been a bit ripped and retaped. I decided to keep it as the tops were so different. I just hope that someone didn't go through and replace any.

The first image is the top layer. The second is the bottom.

Got my box from Toy Wiz yesterday.   The layout of the cups are:

top:
Wheezit       Liptorn         Irish Ring     Duzn't
Hurtz           Bum Chex    Mulers          Fright Cocktail
Goonmans    Choke King  Daffy            Dud

bottom:
Breadcrust    Harm&Hammer  Fright Guard   8 Lives
Yicks            Wheezit             Liptorn           Duzn't
Cheep          Foolite               Heavy             Lox

I'm trying to pace myself and have opened 4 so far.   I naturally went for the Breadcrust first, based on the super information supplied by everyone so far....no Pupsi or rare anything.    Still looking at past scores, I then went for the Hurtz and the Goonmans....only common stuff.     Today I tried the Wheezit on the top row and no rares.

I'm hoping against hope I have a Pupsi hiding somewhere in the remaining 21 cups....

Note the Fright Guard topper proves it isn't just in the display case.

Again, Pat can speak for herself, but I think this is the case she first posted about.  However, while the minis showing seem the same, they are not in the same place as she found.  It'll be interesting to see which minis you find in which cups.

I found the Minis at Target this morning in Milwaukee, WI. It appeared to be a fresh case because the top row was completely filled and the bottom row only had 4 with a white cardboard insert. Does that sound right? 16 count box. If not, I probably should have waited for a 24 count box. But this case looked untouched to me.

Your description doesn’t match the picture, or Did you you take out that insert?
Boxes from Rylee and Toy wiz are full 24. They did have a white cardboard piece that was in front of the band, to hold the rest in place.
Sounds like 8 cups were pulled out, maybe?

They are doing this with the retail boxes. They did the same thing with the GPK Micro Minis in stores. I think they are seeing if a full 24 box will sell first.

So is it confirmed retail stores are only getting 16 in a box and not 24? Unfortunately my photo doesn't show the box as I found it in the store. I scanned them one at a time and put them in the bag. The white insert looked legit but I didn't keep it. I'm just glad I was able to take the tray with the extra minis.

If someone did buy 8 from my Target box, it was 8 random ones. I scored the sparkle red Dull from a cup showing Foolite!

I also want to confirm the seals on these are very easy to peel off and the stickers all have minor damage on the edges.

A lot of people are complaining about it with the GPK. They only put 16 in the boxes for retail. When you buy from Toy Wiz and other online places, they are a full 24 box. It's very strange. I also paid for a full 24 GPK box while at Target and thankfully something caught my eye and I decided to pull all of the items out of the display box... Almost paid for 24!!

I think you're the first to find it at retail, so I guess time will tell if retail cases have 16 or 24.  I would think they'd have 24 (as previous series did), but we'll find out soon enough.

Got my box from Toy Wiz yesterday.   The layout of the cups are:

top:
Wheezit       Liptorn         Irish Ring     Duzn't
Hurtz           Bum Chex    Mulers          Fright Cocktail
Goonmans    Choke King  Daffy            Dud

bottom:
Breadcrust    Harm&Hammer  Fright Guard   8 Lives
Yicks            Wheezit             Liptorn           Duzn't
Cheep          Foolite               Heavy             Lox

I'm trying to pace myself and have opened 4 so far.   I naturally went for the Breadcrust first, based on the super information supplied by everyone so far....no Pupsi or rare anything.    Still looking at past scores, I then went for the Hurtz and the Goonmans....only common stuff.     Today I tried the Wheezit on the top row and no rares.

I'm hoping against hope I have a Pupsi hiding somewhere in the remaining 21 cups....

Note the Fright Guard topper proves it isn't just in the display case.


Did you find any rares?
Title: Re: Series 3 Minis
Post by: bigtomi on February 16, 2022, 10:56:10 AM
Complete Series 3 with 6 Rares and 3 Ultra Rares
Congrats...however, I hate to burst your bubble, there, dude, but you're missing the 10th rare, Bar-Kist...as I suspect practically all of us will be. That's the "fuggetaboutit" rare. It joins gold Windhex and black Commie, in the bullS-I- SI Hall of Shame.

Here's what I got from the 16 cup case I found today at Target - 2 red sparkle rares, so not too shabby! I even got a can with no label. LOL!

All the stickers are different. Several doubles on a few minis. An overall nice selection. I probably wont buy anymore until they show up at Walmart.

Disappointed I didn't get all the commons I really wanted - Tied Detergent, 9 Lives and Hurtz, to name just a few. Are all of them even available now?

I would love to trade my doubles on the commons I need.

I opened two more cups today, and I'm happy to report possibly a new configuration for a Pupsi!   The top mini is Cheep, and the sticker is Martian Hats.   I got a little excited when I noticed 3 can-shaped packages in the cup.   The other minis are:   Daffy, Breadcrust, and Hippy.   

Thanks Swiski for reporting a Foolite might yield a Dull.   That'll be my next hope as I do have one Foolite topper.    :great:

Is it just me or does the image on Pupsi look vertically stretched?  (not complaining, but just seems "off")

I pulled a Hurtz Baked Bears this morning.

3rd case:

(https://i.postimg.cc/bZYVk4jp/100-2868.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/bZYVk4jp)

Top level Choke King cup had a rare STD red mini.
Ducko Cement topper had   rare 6-Urp rare red mini.

Bottom level Irish Ring topper had  a really rare Hurtz Baked Bears black mini.



So this is interesting.  I had the same case as you (from Rylee's Attic) and I got the same rares as you but I also got a Dr Popper from a cup showing Muler's.  So of my two cases from Rylee's, I had one case with 2 rares and one case with 3 rares and 1 really rare.

Because I have too much time on my hands and I enjoy solving puzzles, I thought I would try to figure out how many case configurations there are.  Based on the two cases I've opened and what others have reported here, I think there are six so far.  I'll randomly give each case a letter name below and name the first four cups showing (top level, furthest "back", left to right):

case A - Muler's, Stove Glop, Foolite, Mold Power

case B - Dud's , Brittle, Choke King, Duzn't

case C - Creep, Drainola, Muler's, Ale
(I've also seen a case that goes - Cheep, Creep, Drainola, Ale.  Perhaps some cups shifted in this case, or in the previous one)

case D - Triks, Dud, Doesn't Delight, Sicken/8 Lives (can't tell from the pic)

case E - Yicks, Weez-It, Duzn't, Muler's

case F - Wheez-It, Liptorn, Irish Ring, Duzn't

Has anyone gotten an unmolested case that differs from these?  Do these jibe with what others have seen?  Weirdly, I'm not sure the rares always line up perfectly, but they seem close to the same when folks have found the same configuration.

I live in Madison, WI, about 90 miles west of Milwaukee.  Two weeks ago, I saw the Excel guy at my local Target in the late morning.  He said Friday was his day to stock the stores (and he stocked all the Targets in the Madison area).  I went back today in the early afternoon expecting to find series 3 and nothing.  Possibly I was there too early today, but it seems very strange to me that Milwaukee would have it and just a short distance away there would be nothing.  I may hit another Target later today just to double check, but it would seem strange I would have to wait until next Friday before any showed up.

The glass door display cases are now on sale at Michaels. They are only $14.99 each, and free shipping for orders over $49.00. As many have posted here before, they make great display cases for the minis! The plastic cases I use to store my doubles are $9.99, and these cases in my opinion are so much nicer.

It seems like there is a much higher percentage of distorted package sizes this series than in the first two (in which it seemed like there were very few).

Agreed.  I know I mentioned being really disappointed with Shrunken Donuts.  But, some seem just right, like Rice-a-Phoni

I found a case at a Target in Davenport Iowa.,,It had the 16 cup configuration, with a cardboard insert blocking out the back two rows in the bottom. Also it had no insert sticking up out of the back of the box. I grabbed six cups that had different toppers from my Rylees box. Im getting close to a full set if the commons, but have only pulled one really rare, a Fibbys…im willing to trade commons….

Some titles that I have noticed did not appear as toppers in my cases from Rylee's Attic were Hardly Wrap, Heavy Trash Bags, Ivery Soap, Ivy, Grazin' Bran and Lox.

Glad to hear they’re showing up in more places. I hope finding different toppers yields a variety of new titles. Do you recall what the topper was of the Fibby’s cup?

What are the rarest commons so far?

I bought two Target boxes (with different configurations) and got a red sparkle 6-Up from each box, but only one of these out of both boxes:

Creep
Grazin Bran
Martian Hats
Ivy
Bum Chex
Lova
Drainola
Dud
Hurtz

There may be a few others, but these caught my eye.

There were some commons I got quadruples of.

Tied and Toad are both on the checklist for series 3 I have.  Check on the side where Dull, Pupsi, etc are shown as rares. Tied is on the bottom row and Toad on the middle row, i got two Tied figures in my case, so I don’t think they are hard to come by. But, this does bring up the weirdness that Tied was a sticker in series 1 but there were some stickers that did not have corresponding figures. This was one. Toad was a sticker in series 2, but not with a corresponding figure (I think anyway). I don’t think either were on the checklists. More seemingly random acts by SI.

And this was from a case at Target?

I went on a road trip to visit a friend this past weekend and stopped at six Targets.  Only two had series 3.  Picked up just four cups but didn't find any rares, despite three of those cups as having been reported to have rares in them.  I suspect the rares really are random in the Target cases or one would have to have the "right" topper from the "right" case to match the rares that others have found.

Similar experience. I found Series 3 on Sat in 1 Target out of many. Purchased two cups based in intel and found zero Rares. Purchased Pupsi rare on the bay today and that's it for now. Digging the Pull Tab molded into the top of the Soda' minis; having grown up with those Pull Tabs. I will buy the stickers in the future.

My case came from Toy Wiz.

I've checked 2 local Targets in my area and neither have series 3 as of yet.

In my experience, knowing the right topper only gives you a head-start on the odds:   I remember buying 4 or 5 cups of the known topper in which Exceedrin had been reported; only one of those actually yielded an Exceedrin.   And of course it was the last one I opened, but I still felt like a won a small lottery.  LOL.   So I am very thankful for all the tips, and that's mainly why I'm trying to "pay it forward" by passing on any info I can provide.

I too indulged in buying a few packs from Target in hopes that the knowledge from the cases bought ahead of retail distribution would prove to be a success in finding rares, but I wasn't getting my hopes up. I must say that even know there are some issues with the sizes, shapes, and over printing of the Puny's, I am pretty happy with the distribution so far. If we remember, the last Series 2 required buying from different locations, different size packages just to finish the commons. I think in order for the "rares" and "really rares" to keep their value, there can't be easy finds with patterns all the time. Just my thoughts.

The Targets in Madison, WI got them recently.  There are five here and four had full or almost full 16 cup cases.  Interestingly, the one that had no series 3 had about five series 2 10-count multipacks.  At any rate, I bought 14 cups, mostly ones that people had reported finding the rares/really rares in.  Perhaps not surprisingly, I did better than would randomly be expected with 4 rares and 1 really rare title (Fibby's).  I think the cups that have the rare ones are dependent on which case configuration one finds.  For example, I did get a Mountain Goo in a cup with Breadcrust showing, but also got a couple Breadcrusts with no rares.

I don't think I've bought a cup with Mr Bog showing, at least not at Target.  I found the Fibby's in Muler's.  But I also bought a couple Muler's that had no rares, so it's a crapshoot, even if it's more in your odds than choosing a cup at random.

I think my 6-URP was from a Foolite as well. I'm not really going after a complete set of the rares. Just would be nice to get a Pupsi or Mountain Goo.

I think the aftermarket tanked on these rares. A week ago you could sell a red sparkle on eBay for $50. Now they aren't even moving at $25.

So it seems only our little group is buying and selling these things. They don't appeal to the mass audience as much.

I did not know how much I would have to spend to get a set or how rare the rares would be. I have spent about $160 on a mail order case  and 6 cups at target. I am content to have a full set of the commons, still missing several rares. I will hold off on those until if/when the resale market cools down. If SI or Topps does a Series 4, i hope they do some more interesting shapes, since we are sick of square boxes of detergents….

I must have purchased 4 Liptorns from several Targets but no rares. Same with Breadcust Hash toppers. I did get another red sparkle 6-URP, which seems to be the more common soda mini. Really really hate that the red sparkles are the only way to get these sodas!

I've spoken to my rep at SI and she said that they could possible compensate certain buyers,  with legitimate claims, but they need proof;  photos taken immediately and proof of purchase.

Any of you having/ finding an issue should email SI and report your findings. You never know....

Mystery Boxes/ Bags/ Cans, etc are just that so finding duplicate figures (within a display box) is normal but getting the same stickers in each pack is not. I doubt SI will change the packaging but report your dissatisfaction just in case.

So I drove by the 3rd nearest Target store to me today and had to check it out...score!   First time for me seeing series 3 in a store...the cardboard filler on the bottom two rows was indeed a strange sight to behold.

Picked 3 cups based on topper intel, and a fourth because it had Rice-A-Phoni which I needed.
The three intel toppers were:
Liptorn:  nothing special, but 3 commons on my need list
Breadcrust:   Mountain Goo!
Hurtz:   nothing special, but 1 common on my need list

All in all, I did get 7 commons I needed, so along with the Mountain Goo, a good score for 4 cups.   Only need 9 more commons for a complete set.

VIOLA! Complete set of Series 3 commons, just missing 3 rares and 1 really rare! My kid and i had a blast opening cups and checking them off of checklists! Sorry, first part of the alphabet is in the bottom photo…i have 40-45 doubles if anyone is missing any commons. Willing to pay it forward and let them go for the cost of postage to help others complete a set…

I bought a case from Toy Wiz.  Only had 2 rares, no really rares and missing 10 commons.   :sad:

I did get a Pupsi on the very last cup I opened.  Bottom level with Cheep on the top.
I also pulled a 6 Urp from the bottom with Liptorn as the topper.

None of my Targets seem to have them yet.

Mulers Dreggs Noodles was another topper that had a possible rare inside. Liptorn I know had the 6-URP and Breadcrust had either the Mountain Goo or Pupsi, so one of those I got from Mulers.

Sounds like you got a very similar, if not same, case as I from Toy Wiz.   My rares were Pupsi from a Cheep topper and 6Urp from a Liptorn topper...both on the bottom level.

I've tried and the bottom line seems to be that it really is fairly random.  A lot (all?) seems to depend on the case configuration.  For example, Muler's may or may not depending on which case configuration/assortment.  It's a similar situation, from what I can tell, with many of them.  That being said, here are the ones in which I've found or has been reported to contain the rares:
Choke King, Breadcrust, Foolite, Hurtz, Muler's, Liptorn, and Sludge. 

I'll be curious to hear what you find.  Good luck!

The stickers, for what it's worth, are interesting and unpredictable as well (though I haven't kept close count on those).  I did buy three cups the other day and the sticker matched the one showing in all three cups.  Off the top of my head (having opened up probably 100 cups), I would estimate that the sticker matches the one showing in maybe 15-20% of the time, but that's a total offhand guess. 

I haven't really looked too closely at my stickers yet as I was waiting until my cup-buying days are over.  But they are definitely coming to a close, so I'll likely start to look more closely soon enough.  I don't have many doubles (sold off a bunch on ebay already), but feel free to let me know which ones you're looking for and I'll see if I can help you out.

I finished the sticker set last night with Shrunken Donuts acquired via Ebay.  I have only purchased 6 cups at retail and did pull a Fibby , Mtn Goo and Baked Bears rares so very happy with that. I purchased lots of stickers on the bay and traded vigorously here during the last few days. Thanks to those who traded or sold me stickers. I am happy they all came out unlike the first series where two ere never made.  Also glad all the minis are out. It seems SI is not extorting us so much this time around.

I am wondering about that same thing.  I haven't followed ebay closely nor checked into any Walmarts.  But I'm wondering if there are any new tricks up SI's sleeves.  I mean, everything has been released (that is, there are no minis or stickers that haven't shown up), so what's left to get anyone excited?  Maybe casual collectors will find them at Walmart for the first time, but it seems this series ultimately has kinda come and gone without lots of interest or intrigue or drama (at least compared to the prior two series).

Series 3 is stalled at retail. Every Target I visit has a box with one or two missing. Ebay has slowed down with very little new listings for Mini's or stickers. If these show up at WalMart now they will be DOA.

I finally managed to hit a regular Target.  They had 5 Series 3 Wacky cups mixed in with GPK cups, in a GPK display case.  I picked up all 5, and was hoping that the cup with Ale on top might have my elusive Ale sticker.  No such luck.  But, apparently the rest of that case of Wacky cups sold.

I can report that my local Target has sold six cups, all to me, and not re-stocked with series 3. They put several series 2 cups in the series 3 display box, but they are not fooling me. Its super disappointing. Did i read the other threads correct, there were only 50 Barkists made?

That actually sounds high, given that at least on the Forum we only heard of 2 or 3 gold Windhexes turning up.  Of course realizing that there are plenty of non-Forum buyers, but still...

Not that it means much, but I was in my local Walmart last night and looked.  They had a small amount of series 2 left, but no series 3 in sight.

At least with the red sparkles in series 1 you knew there was one in each mulitpack. Having to buy a ton of cups at WM when you already have all the base minis is a no go for most people. I do like the way the light blue rare minis look, but won't be chasing them in WM.

Well, they gave us all the titles and stickers in the Target cases, and people here noted that interest and sales were lagging, and product was sitting on Target shelves.  Also noted was that ebay listings seemed scarce.  I can't blame them for wanting to keep sales brisk for both major buyers.  I wonder if the Walmart checklists show the "rares" as blue sparkles, and whether the "really rares" from Walmart are black?
Title: Re: Series 3 Minis
Post by: Swiski on March 23, 2022, 04:50:51 AM
Now if SI was smart, they should have made variant stickers as well, depending on the store. Naturally Target would be red, and Walmart would be blue. Maybe a third color for other online retailers. I know this would drive you completists nuts! (photoshopped image below)

The Bar-kist mini on the checklist is blue sparkle. So maybe that will be the really fuggetaboutit.

I picked up 3 cups in a Walmart today. (These were only my 7th - 9th cups purchased)  No rares. The checklist just states "Sparkle" next to the rares so that it works for red or blue.

I went to a Walmart today and had no luck.  I wonder if the distribution of minis will be any different in the Walmart cups.  I've not come across many Grazin' Brans, for example, and I wonder if they will be in any greater supply.  I'd also like to find a cup with Grazin' Bran on top, but I don't think I've seen or heard of one yet.

LMK when you see these in your area of Wisconsin! I checked today as well in Milwaukee....no luck. Still beat up old trays of Series 1 and 2.

Is there a way to locate which stores have these by SKU? The tag I had them scan was for the old ones?

   I am starting to believe Target stores were either not given a case or they had been limited to just one per store. I started looking at Walmarts when the blue versions arrived on feeBay and all 4 stores I check still nothing.

Interesting you say that about Target.  Since they've started to show up there, I don't think I've found a Target without a case.  And some seem to be on at least their second case.

We're going on 3 weeks now, and only North Carolina got the Series 3 cups at Walmart?!

Can someone show me the barcode on one of the Walmart cups so I can have them scan it for inventory? I've been giving them an older cup to scan.

For what little it's worth, I stopped at a Walmart in southern MN yesterday while on a trip there and saw no series 3 cups (just a handful of series 2).  It sure does seem strange that some places are getting them so much sooner than (almost all) others.

Im not a marketing officer, bit it seems their distribution model is designed to MINIMIZE profits. Topps had it right back in the day with Wackys..flood the market, cause a frenzy, strike while the iron is hot…and sell a boatload of product…That is, of course, an oversimplification…they were also trying to stay ahead of the lawsuits…but they distributed the crap out Wackys for a few years…
Title: Re: Series 3 Minis
Post by: Liptorn on April 04, 2022, 02:09:10 PM
Many Walmart stores have gone to nearly all self checkouts.
The Wackys are meant for the checkout lanes because if they are put in any other part of the store, they will be opened as I am seeing more of that at Targets.
I think a small percentage of Walmarts will carry Wackys, it doesn't make sense to make a production run for a store and it only be available in a small percentage of its stores.

I have only seen Series 3 at one Walmart so far.  The issue is there are no new mini's exclusive to the WalMart Cups other than the Blue Chase Mini's. Series 2 had exclusive regular mini's.  Who wants to buy a bunch of cups with all base repeats just to try to score a Chase?  Not many people. You are better off buying the chase on Ebay once they get cheaper IMO.

Agreed. Dr. Popper has come down from almost $100 to about $25-30. Canada Dry Fink remains ridiculously high.....I am NOT paying $100 for 50 cents worth of plastic. Wasn't that what Gilligan said?

I went on a 3 1/2 hour road trip today to visit my brother and had some interesting fines. I stopped at two Walmarts in southern Wisconsin/Northern Illinois. Of the 8 cups I bought, six of them had rares inside. One had both a red and a blue STP (Ale was the topper).  I stopped at two Walmarts in central Illinois and neither had series 3 cups (only a fair number of series 2 cups).  I hope to hit a couple more on my return home Sunday. I’ll let you know what I find out.
