Are they doing the crazy distribution waves again?

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.

Good and Empty and Melty Way would be good choices, too.

A unique shape for sure!  That was why Chimpeata came to my mind.  But, now I am thinking View Monster is a must!!

Gyppy Pop would be a cool one. A foil version could be the chase, and that one everyone will want to get!

I emailed my contact at SI this week and no update at all on Series 3.  They may not show up till next year is my sense.

I hope series 3 will include wax pack-shaped Wackys.  I'd love to see Beanball or Planet of the Grapes (among many others) in that series.

I was asked just now about my Series 1 Mini's Sticker Collection. I have 196 Series 1 Stickers. 48 Redline, 74 Light, 74 dark. It was a monumental task to acquire them all.

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."
